Customer Comments & Reviews
Very happy with product, fitted 4 to our 4 wheel van, I have an engineering background and welding equipment so for me installation was easy. Without this you would need expert assistance in fitting so be careful who you choose to do the work. We have a rear kitchen van which suffers when on undulating roads (crockery gets knocked about) so Alco shocks fitted to reduce van bounce (rebound) and make towing a pleasure...happy vanning

Theres no info as to what size leaf the brackets are drilled for.
Bought them anyway as I had the welder booked to weld on the top brackets.
Sure enough the holes were in the wrong place for my springs requiring filing of the holes. The bracket fell short of the leaf width by about 10mm.................Editor: The hole spacing on the bracket have been added to website - they are 75mm centre to centre

The product proved to be "just as required", comparable to ones seen fitted to the Australian built Jurgens caravans. Road test is still to be carried out though to see if my problem of "bounce" has been fixed.

I have a 7x4 trailer fitted with a camper trailer tent and the original 45mm x 5 eye to eye leaf spring was way too bouncy with the 700Kg total weight. I fitted the ALKO shocks and removed the shortest spring and I have now a very stable and docile trailer. Installation was easy with just two brackets welding required. I definitely recommend for any off-road use.

Excellent product installation only required two brackets to be welded to chassis. Had to modify u bolts centres to suit springs but overall an outstanding safety modification. A GREAT product
