M416 shocks

Post by bazookajoe » October 13th, 2015, 11:44 pm

What are the correct replacement shocks for a 416 trailer and are they available at an auto parts store?

I can tell you that the 416 shock is longer then the 151/A1 shocks, I don't have access to my trl. right now but can go look at it later if no one comes up with the number.

The white shock is off a 151, they are both fully extended.

Joe, according to my old list of interchanges, M416 (NOT M416A1***) shock absorbers can be replaced with :-

NAPA 94038
Monroe 11465
Monroe 18236
Monroe Gasadjust G5401MIL
Gabriel Classic 82014

Take one of your old ones to compare to either/all of these before you buy.

***NB "The interchange shock absorbers are listed above. I'm advised that these will directly replace the original shock absorbers on the M416 and M416 w/hydraulic brake (M416A1). Note however that the M416A1 has a third shock absorber.... this is installed in the lunette housing and is designated "Shock Absorber - Actuator - p/n 1844-2". Unless someone has found an interchangeable unit for this, you will need to obtain a mil replacement."

I wasnt aware that the M416A1 used a different shock, do you know what the cross-over shock would be... Thanks, Scott

Scott,

I will amend my earlier post. It should have said....."The interchange shock absorbers are listed above. I'm advised that these will directly replace the original shock absorbers on the M416 and M416 w/hydraulic brake (M416A1). Note however that the M416A1 has a third shock absorber.... this is installed in the lunette housing and is designated "Shock Absorber - Actuator - p/n 1844-2". Unless someone has found an interchangeable unit for this, you will need to obtain a mil replacement."
I hope this clarifies. Sorry 'bout that.

Ken
Kind regards....
