Trailer Suspension worn out

Hi all, I have a 2014 Kodiak 240BHSL (2 Axels) and my suspension has worn to the point I'm getting a ton of wear on the inside edge of the tires. I noticed the wear a while back and then a guy at a repair station in Utah pointed out the bad bushings, etc on the suspension.
So, I'm looking to upgrade it as we plan to keep our camper for a long while and drive a lot of dirt roads. I'm looking at this kit:

Will this fit my camper? It seems like a pretty straight forward install. Any advice appreciated!
Thanks,
Randy

Suspension

I put new suspension on my camper. Went from 2200 lb axle to 3500.lb with 3000 lb. Leaf springs to limit bounce. The place is call Axle Inc. In Indiana, they do have a website too. It was all assembled and I had it shipped to my buddies business for $120, i could have paid UPS $60 but I would have to mount the springs to the axle. All in was $320. Bolted right up with new hardware in 20 minutes. They know a lot about the trailer suspensionto guide you. Good luck!

Aaxle inc, in Elkhart In. Fantastic bunch of folks. They service our High school marching band trailers. Without them we would go no where.
