Good advice...
And when that "relief grind" cracks and you loose a 15K lb trailer you can say.... ..... ........ ........................ .............................

I'D look for a better answer.

Just saying, I wouldn't go that route, ever!!!

On the first screen I saw that I made a double post then I edited my response and the original post was gone.
Anyway, I saw that Vohs has a nice 7.3 also. Just hoping we are all "Comrades" here and that nothing will be taking too seriously.
7.3 is as bad as Cummins . The gloves are off now !
Just think of all the stuff we can get away with and just blame it on the " site " .

So I debated the relief grind in the gooseneck which wouldnít need to be a large one even. Since Iíve had these ranchos for a few thousand miles itís cause that scratch on the shock tube which has since rusted over. Which means the gooseneck hasnít hit it in a while but since I just figured out about the firmness of the shocks I guess weíll see. I ended up putting it back on as is but Iíll keep an eye on it to see if the softer shock setting will allow it to hit more or deeper.

I worked for the Federal Government for about 30 yaers.
The first thing they, or any state agency, go after is - "What was wrong at the time of the incident".
Upside-down shocks = wrong. Simple
Ground out hitch = wrong. Simple

Protect your A** in these towing situations. A few hundred dollars in safety could keep you out of prison for a few years. It's not often, but it DOES happen!

Iíve worked for the gov for about a decade. Besides I havenít towed a gooseneck for the last 4 years. Like I said Iíll just monitor it and if it gets worse Iíll find something else to do. I.e. remove the gooseneck or get different shocks

My bad. I thought this was some kind of new or urgent problem.
Maybe not enough info...
If your shocks are four or more years old, you can probably find some that are even better at a 1/4" - 3/8" smaller in diameter and eliminate that rubbing that had been happening.
FWIW
