Not unless you beak something. I used them on DRV. Takes all the rocking from washing machine out. Doesn't help vibration though. Can't use on Teton, axles too close together. It doesn't rock with only wheel chops.

Only way they could do that would be if you had several things loose in your suspension already. I've read of suspension bolts that were either not installed with the right torque or somehow managed to work loose though. I added checking all suspension components to my springtime checklist after that, but haven't found anything like it yet.

As long as all of your suspension bolts/hardware is tight the X chocks won't hurt anything.

My gosh, if your suspension can go thru a 3" pothole and survive certainly the
X chocks won't hurt anything.

Best chocks on the market takes all the rock out of the rv. I only use them while camping if my trailers parked I use regular chocks
