Any one know where to purchase heavy duty shocks that can be use in towing a pop up trailer with the Element? Or a place where you can replace the OEM Springs with heavier suspension? I would appreciate your feedback.

So far, the only place I found in the Internet is KYB shocks only supplied for the rear but they are "performance" shocks, not for supporting a load. Can't seem to find "air shocks" anywhere.

Thanks for your feedback.

Have you researched the threads for towing advice. I'd be curious to know how heavy yout Pop-up trailer is? I tow a 1500lb Starcraft without difficulty. Are you sure you want to be altering the suspension? The heavier the tow the more strain on your engine. I really wouldn't tow anything greater than 1800-1900lbs. Just a thought.:roll:
