The suspension on the truck has very little to do with towing, especially such a small trailer. It's the braking you should be concerned with and your truck is more than capable of stopping that trailer.
I drag around a fully-loaded 7'x14" enclosed tandem axle trailer with an '88 Grand Caravan. I don't even need the electric brakes. I would be pretty embarrassed if you HAVE to beef up your truck to pull that trailer. It's good that you are looking into the ramifications of pulling a trailer, but you're not going to wear anything out any faster by doing so. The front suspension parts don't even know there's a trailer in the picture. You may also find that your truck has tie rod ends and ball joints in common with the 2500 series. Heavy duty shock absorbers won't add anything to the towing ability. At best, they will help control the bouncing when you're carrying a heavy load in the truck, but not when dragging it behind.
