If you're going to put shocks on it, I'd put them on both axles. You can buy a u-bolt plate that has shock mounting holes on it already, then just weld a tab onto your trailer frame for the other end to bolt to. You can use either type of shock, really won't matter.

Why are you wanting to put shocks on it? The only time there's really a need for them is if you have a REALLY top-heavy trailer like an RV. If your just wanting to stiffen up the ride of a carhauler, you can put a heavier spring on it, and it will do much more good for the rocking back and forth than just adding shocks.

Hope this helps!

Just trying to reduce boucing a little ( I live on a dirt road) Thought it might be less wear and tear on the car and trailer.
