Load Leveling Rear Shocks?

Are there any that fit?

My FIL has a Jayco 1206, which is probably pushing 3500lbs loaded, with about 400# on the pin.

Thumbs up Re: Load Leveling Rear Shocks?

A member on jeepcherokeeclub.com reported that Firestone (makers of the RiteRite airbags) will be releasing an in-coil airbag for the KL's sometime in Aug-Sept

Respectful Suggestion: Be very carful taking anything from jeepcherokeeclub.com as fact and not researching it yourself first. A lot of stuff thrown around over there and no authority really keeps control of things. To me it is like the wild west over there and why I came here. It is much more professional here.

Thanks for the suggestion but note that I wrote "A member reported..."
I did not claim to know it to be a fact.

Re: Load Leveling Rear Shocks?

There are a few companies out there that manufacture load leveling/air leveling devices; most do so for various Jeep models, GC, Liberty, Wrangler, etc..

You might want to contact co's such as Monroe, AirLift, and so on as well as Firestone to see if they have or are developing a product for the Cherokee. That might be better use of time.
