Travel trailer shocks

I have a 1997 Holiday Rambler tamdem axle travel trailer and thinking about adding one shock absorbers that I read about here in the forums. Should I buy four shocks in two kits or start with two shocks in one kit. If I buy one kit should it be installed on the front axle or rear axle or does it even matter. I have no reason to add shocks other than it is a good idea and it may help the trailer ride.

You need to control the rebound of all 4 springs.

I think if you are gonna do this, do it for all tire positions, or none at all.

Yup, exactly that. You have to treat it like a car or the handling of your trailer is going to be destroyed.

Our Komfort came with 4 shocks. Current trailer doesn't have them. I don't miss them.
