Video Transcript for Review of Titan Replacement Shock Absorber For Titan Or Dico Model 60 Brake Actuator - T2336200

Hi, everybody. Andy here with And today, we're gonna take a brief look at this replacement shock absorber for the Titan Model 60 brake actuators. This is going to replace the shock absorber for the Titan Model 60 brake actuators. And this is also going to fit the Dico Model 60 brake actuators as well. Now, just to give you some overall dimensions, gonna pull out my ruler here.

Looking at the collapsed length, I'm not gonna be able to show you the extended length. But looking at the collapse length, lining up my ruler center to center here, we are sitting right at almost five inches as you can see there, center to center. So, that's gonna be the collapsed length. And on the extended length, this is gonna be sitting right at about 6 1/4 inches. So, if you are needing a replacement shock absorber for your Titan or Dico Model 60 brake actuator, this is going to be an exact replacement from Titan, so you can trust that it's going to work with your Model 60 brake actuators.

Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Replaces shock absorber for Dexter Model 60 brake actuators.


Found this shock online here at etrailer which I had trouble finding anywhere else with any confidence. The listing on helped me identify the exact shock I needed for my 25 year old Surge unit. Fit right, works great! Thanks etrailer! Gary


Fit well on my 20 yr old trailex alum car trailer. This part along with a new master cylinder solved the shuttering when applying brakes. The hydraulic channels in the master cyl are tiny and corrosion can block the channels.


Just finished putting brakes, rims and new tires on my boat trailer. Etrailer had everything I needed to get the Job done. I received my tires and wheels only to discover I was sent 3-14" tires and 1-15". I quickly called and talked with Courtney and she was very apologetic and made sure the right tire and rim were sent out the same day. I received it 5 days later and was able to complete the job. I will definitely use etrailer again in the future, it was a pleasure dealing with them. Here is a picture of my project.


Fits and works perfectly. Rebuilt entire coupler and trailer springs


I had to enlarge one bore from 7/16 diameter to 1/2 to fit my surge brake model, Titan Aero 7500, but I knew that when I bought it and it wasn't difficult to drill out. Other than that, I think this will work for my surge brake setup.


Exactly what I needed


Working well. No more banging master cylinder when I stop.


Ordered this shock absorber for the surge breaks on my car dolley. When I was towing my car on the dolley, the surge breaks would 'chuck' (swiftly engaging and disengaging causing the dolley and car to quickly stop / start as the breaks went on and off) The shock fit exactly and seems to have fixed the problem. That takes a lot of the worry about towing a car off my shoulders, and that is a good thing!!

I ordered the part on a Tuesday and it arrived here in Florida, after crossing half the country, on Friday morning. Great job!



It has been a year since I wrote this review. A year and 5000 miles. The shock absorber continues to do its job as designed. Anyone with this chucking problem should take a look at this cure. Easy to do and worth the effort


It did the job.


This part fit perfectly on my 2009 boat trailer replacing the broken part and solving a problem.


Item appeared to have been installed / used though listed as new. The part’s appearance does not matter but getting long service life does


Parts match perfectly. Parts came 2 days early.


There was a loud clunk and you could feel it when using the surge brakes on our ski boat trailer. The master cylinder was badly pitted. Now the braking is smooth and responsive.


thanks it finally made it safe


Etrailer transaction was easy and delivery of the shock and master cylinder was fast. Both products installed without any mods and my boat trailer is a dream to tow now.


part is correct and is now installed on trailer hitch

Dave E.


still working fine good quality


easy install on hydraulic brake actuator for 6000 lb boat/trailer. trailer was slamming when stopping/starting


I was pleased with the brake lines and trailer shock absorber. I received what was shown. They came in a timely manner, was what I needed and was reasonably priced. Thank you. I am installing them today. Will be back to order more parts in the future.

This was exactly what I needed to fix the tongue on my trailer. It was sliding in and out about three inches, causing a bang when a started and stopped. The trailer is for a 2000 Bayliner boat. This shock absorber matched the old one perfectly. And, it only took about ten minutes to replace.
Perfect part and delivered very quickly.


Easy install


Product came well packaged, and was identical to the shock being replaced easy install, no more clanking when starting and stopping ( also replaced master cylinder)


Replaced the shock in my Titan 60 actuator assembly along with the actuator itself. Less expensive and easier than replacing the whole Titan 60. This part took all or 5 min.


Brakes were rebuilt with etrailer parts and are working great. Thanks // etrailer.


Replacement shock absorber fit perfectly. Fast shipment and item well packed.


Part functions as it should. Actuator no longer slams out on acceleration.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Hubs That Show Different Operating Temperatures
    The fact that your two brake drums are operating at such different temperatures tells us that at least one of them is having a problem. The 200-degree heat you measured on one of the drums on the trailer axle could be related to the brake assembly being either damaged or misadjusted; or it could indicate a problem with the bearings in that hub. High heat can indicate either inadequate lubrication in the hubs or damaged bearings, which tend to run hotter as they age and wear out. If the...

  • Replacing the Shock Absorber on a Titan Model 60 Actuator
    The current shock absorber on your Titan Model 60 actuator won't be under any kind of pressure so it is simply a matter of taking the actuator apart to get at the absorber. The Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators # T2336200 may need to be slightly compressed when you fit it into the actuator but this is something that can be done by hand. It should be fully expanded when you receive it so you won't have to worry about expanding it for the installation.

  • What Size Bolts Are Used To Secure the Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Actuators
    The Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators part # T2336200 is secured with a 7/16" bolt and 1/2" bolt. The eye attached to the shock body is 7/16" and the eye attached to the action is 1/2".

  • Trailer Brake Actuator Can be Easily Moved by Hand
    You are correct, there should be resistance and you probably would not be able to move it by hand without some sort of lever if it was working properly. It does sound like it is time for a new one or repair the old one. If your actuator is a bolt on then it would easier to just get a new one rather than replace parts on the old one. There are several models available depending on the capacity you need, the type of brakes on the trailer (disc or drum), and the type of lockout, if any, it...

  • Is there a Heavy Duty Damper Shock Available for Titan Brake Actuators?
    The Replacement Shock Absorber for Dexter Model 60 Brake Actuators # T2336200 you're looking at is a direct replacement for the Dexter Model 60 actuators, so if you have this actuator this is going to be the correct replacement. As far as a heavy duty replacement, there is not going to be one to prevent people from overloading their actuators. Theoretically, if you were to find a shock that has the same dimensions as your current one and has a higher capacity it could be used, but if...

  • What Does Shock Absorber on Titan Model 60 Surge Brake Actuator Do?
    The Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators # T2336200 for your Titan Model 60 Surge Brake Actuator ensures smooth operation of the brakes when you apply the brakes of your tow vehicle by easing the trailer forward. Without a shock the actuator would apply the brakes very sporadically and cause a less than pleasant towing experience.

  • Troubleshooting Surge Brakes Locking Up When Moving Forward
    Surge brakes use a hydraulic actuator to push fluid to the cylinder piston to activate the brake shoes on drum brakes or brake pads on disc brakes. This pressure should only be applied when weight is pushing against the hitch ball, so no pressure when moving forward and pulling the trailer. With brakes dragging and locking up when going forward, there has to be something mechanically incorrect in the system like a sticking piston in the wheel cylinder keeping pressure on the brake shoes...

  • Troubleshooting Non-Electric Drum Brakes on an EZ Loader Trailer That Lock Up Moving Forward
    It sounds like you have surge brakes on your EZ Loader Duel axle trailer for your 1989 Bayliner. If your brakes are locking up when trying to move forward, it sounds like there is a mechanical error happening and it is most likely happening in the coupler. Something like a sticking piston in the wheel cylinder keeping pressure on the brake shoes or a plunger in the master cylinder that is not releasing. There is a shock like the # T2336200 in the coupler to help the coupler return to position...

  • Why Are My Calipers Dragging On My Load Rite Trailer?
    If your brake calipers are dragging, this is indicating that your caliper is not properly aligned with the rotor. This is caused by a bent caliper mounting bracket, or some warped rotors and pads. To fix this, you'll need to inspect the alignment between the rotor and the pad, and if it turns out to be a bent bracket simply replace as necessary. If you're able to send me the specific brake kit you have or some pictures of your brakes, I would be happy to see if we have some replacement...

  • Hydraulic Trailer Drum Brakes Get Hot and Actuator Will Not Return After Storing Trailer for Winter
    It is possible that if there is a leak then you have air trapped in the system causing some problems. There could also be some corrosion somewhere that is not allowing the actuator to return to its normal state after being pushed in. Since the brakes are getting so hot, you will want to look at the drums too to see if there is any warping or color changes that can affect the performance. You can take them to a brake shop to be inspected. Testing the system with fluid is a good way to...

  • Minimum and Maximum Length of Titan Shock Absorber # T2336200
    I contacted our representative at Titan about the Titan Shock Absorber, part # T2336200. He informed me that from the center of the bushing hole to center of bushing hole when collapsed the shock measures approximately 4.930 inches. When the shock is fully extended, from center of bushing hole to center of bushing hole it measures approximately 6.250 inches.

  • Are Surge Actuator Shocks Normally Hard to Push In and Pull Out
    Shocks like the Replacement Shock Absorber part # T2336200 that you referenced are normally pretty hard to push in and pull out so if that is what you are experiencing then yes it would seem like yours is working normally.

  • Is Tongue on Titan Replacement Shock Absorber # T2336200 Supposed to Return After Bleeding Brakes
    A shock absorber's tongue like on the Titan Replacement Shock Absorber for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators # T2336200 referenced in your question will not normally return on its own after bleeding the brakes. Typically you will have to manually pull it back out. It's possible that it will sometimes slide back out slowly, like you had happen previously, but that is not an indication of it being pressurized or not.

  • What are the Retracted and Extended Lengths of the Replacement Shock for Model 60 Actuators
    The Replacement Shock for Model 60 Actuators, # T2336200, has a collapsed length of 4.930 inches (4-15/16 inches) and an expanded length of 6.250 inches (6-1/4 inches). The length is measured between the holes on center.

  • Troubleshooting Hydraulic Trailer Brakes Initially Locking Up After Coming to a Stop
    It sounds like the shock absorber might be the issue here. The shock absorber, like part # T2336200 for Dexter Model 60 Brake Actuators, is designed to "push" the actuator back into a naturally opened position but it sounds like your coupler is staying compressed until your tow vehicle pulls it back open, which is why your trailer brakes are still activated until that initial "pull" you're feeling after a stop. Your trailer coupler should be very difficult to compress by hand (typically...

  • Bolt Torque Specs For Installing Titan # T2336200 Replacement Shock Absorber into a Brake Actuator
    According to my contact at Titan, there is no torque spec for those bolts. The 'rule of thumb' I was given is that the bolts should be tightened enough so that when the actuator is fully extended, you should be able to get a .002 feeler gauge in between the slide and the outer assembly. In other words, tighten the bolt so it's snug but NOT so tight that it compresses the housing, or you'll turn the actuator into a coupler.

  • Replacement Shock for Worn Out One on a Titan Model 60 Trailer Coupler
    It does indeed sound like the shock is shot. The shock basically prevents the moving part of the coupler from banging around when stopping and accelerating. If you can easily move the coupler in and out by hand then it is for sure the shock. For the model 60 actuators use shock # T2336200. You mentioned adjusting the trailer brakes but make sure you have not adjusted them too far. There should be a slight but constant drag of the pads on the drum when the wheel is turned. You might also...

  • Replacement Shock Absorber for M101A1 Military Trailer
    The Replacement Shock Absorber part # T2336200 is for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators like the Titan Zinc-Plated, Leverlock Brake Actuator w/ Lockout Shield. If you have a Titan Model 60 Brake Actuator then the Replacement Shock Absorber will work for you but unfortunately, I don't have any information on what brake actuator is on your military trailer. If you would like to send me a few photos I can then forward them onto Titan to see if they recognize the brake actuator but if not then...

  • Troubleshooting Surge Brakes Activating when Boat Trailer is being Reversed
    What you are describing is a problem most surge brake setups have that do not have a reverse lockout feature. Since you said a solenoid problem it sounds like you have an electric reverse lockout solenoid like the part # T4748800 that is not working. You could try checking the reverse light circuit of your trailer connector to determine if the problem is there. There might be corrosion in the connector that is preventing the circuit from working. I would use a circuit tester like our part...

  • Troubleshooting Titan Model 60 Brake Actuating Coupler Not Releasing Disc Brakes
    Since your brakes aren't releasing, it sounds like you either have a bad master cylinder in your surge coupler or a bad shock. The caliper piston moved when you released the pressure with the bleed valve, so it appears the plunger on the master cylinder is not responding when you release the brakes. This could be the master cylinder # T4820000 or it could be the shock # T2336200 has gone bad not allowing the pressure to be released.

  • Replacement Shock and Push Rod for a Titan Model 60 Trailer Disc Brake Actuator
    It does sound like the shock is not returning. We do carry the part you need. It is Titan Shock Absorber for Model 60 Brake Actuators, # T2336200. If the Titan coupler you have is for disc brake applications and it were used on drum brake applications, the psi level would be too high. Also the brake lines and fittings normally used for drum brakes would not be large enough for disc brake applications. The push rod could also be in need of replacement. It is part # T2346300.

  • Replacement Master Cylinder and Shock Recommendation for Trailer with Model 60 Actuator
    The Replacement Master Cylinder Assembly part # T4820000 is designed for Titan Model 60 Brake Actuators like what you have and is for disc brakes. Then for a replacement shock you'd need the part # T2336200 and you'd be set.

  • How to Tell if Shock Absorber on Titan Model 60 Hydraulic Brake Trailer Coupler Needs Replacement
    According to Dexter Axle, who purchased Titan a few years back there really isn't a definitive method to bench test the shock absorber used in the Titan Model 60 coupler. If you can easily move the shock by hand, it's worn to the point where it should be replaced. It should take a significant amount of force to move the shock. Should it need replacing, the # T2336200 replacement shock would be the proper replacement.
