    What can I do to beef up my 8 x 18 open utility trailer. Shocks will they help? Why am I eating up tires so bad? Dam it makes tons of noise when I am going down the road. Torsion axles are they a solution? Give me your knowledge guys! Thanks

    a pic would help...........how are the tires being eat'n up? that could have to do with camber, toe, air pressure etc.............too much pressure in tires can cause the trailer to bounce around, does it only bounce around when empty?

    They have an air ride suspension system that uses the existing components of your leaf spring axle. My guess is it's going to be less expensive than replacing your current with torsion axles unless you can find a wreak to get the off of. It's worth a shot anyway.
