Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Suspension - Leaf Spring Suspension - K71-384-00 Review

Male Speaker: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Dexter trailer springs over/under conversion kit. This conversion kit is designed to fit 2-3/8 inch diameter axles. It's going to allow you to move the trailer release springs to the top of the axle without having to change the correct orientation of the axle. This is going to help with leveling your trailer. It's going to help wheel well clearance, and it also adds some height to prevent dragging, dipping, and bottoming out. One kit is going to come with enough components for one axle, so one kit per axle.

This is designed for use with double-eye springs only. The unit's going to include two spring seats. These are going to sit on top of your axle. It's going to come with eight nuts. It's going to come with four u-bolts. Two tie-down plates, the tie-down plates sit on top of your release springs once you have them moved to the top of the axle.

It's got the holes in it, that way the u-bolts can wrap around the axle and come up through the plate. You can secure it by installing the included nuts. It's going to come with the spacer nuts. These are going to allow the setup to install level. Basically, you would have one spring seat on top of the axle, then your old spring seat would still be under the axle. The spacer nut is going to fill that gap between the two spring seats.

You would place this on until it makes contact with the bottom spring seat. Then what you would need to do, which is highly recommended from the manufacturer, is tack weld this to the axle. That's the only welding that's required, or highly recommended, that you tack weld this to the axle. Then you can finish the tightening process or any minimal adjustments simply using a wrench. The u-bolt length on the unit is going to measure 5-1/8th of an inch. Everything that you see here on the table is included.

It's also going to come with some detailed installation instructions to help with the installation process. This is a bolt on installation, but again because there is a little bit of highly recommended tack welding that needs to take place, we can't say that it's a fully bolt on installation. Overall, it's a nice unit. We're looking at all steel components, and it's going to last a long time. This is going to allow you to move the trailer release springs to the top of the axle without having to change the correct orientation of your axle. This is really going to come in handy when it comes to leveling the trailer, gaining some extra wheel well clearance, and trying to add some clearance to prevent those situations where you may be dragging, dipping, or bottoming out. That's going to do it for today's look at the Dexter trailer springs over-under conversion kit.

Ordered kit on Wednesday at 6pm and received on Friday by noon. Unbelievable !!! Very easy to install. Completed change out in 2 hours. Got the results I was looking for. Raised camper 5 1/4 inches. Very pleased. Will continue to use and recommend Etrailer . 101935

We modified a client's newly acquired Flagstaff pop-up to better handle off-road camping. This kit made the process simple, reliable and inexpensive. We opted to remove the original spring perches and weld on new (and shock mounts) but the kit allowed for simple bolt on. The customer had us winterize the camper, as part of the service we checked tires, bearings and axles....the U-bolts and mounts all looked fantastic. 766504

Had to do some minor mods to install these on my travel trailer, but seeing as we were going to weld them in place all was good! Made it real easy to get things set up correctly. Great product! 526838

Much nicer having the trailer up in the air a bit. The spring over conversion is one of the best mods I have done to the trailer and I highly recommend this kit...still 5 stars.

Kit arrived well packaged. Surprisingly quick to install on my 6x12 enclosed utility trailer. Using an air impact wrench to remove all the nuts from the old setup made for quick work. The instructions recommend removing one of the spring shackle bolts on both sides, but I found this unnecessary. I only removed the U bolts, then shifted the axle to the side until I could drop it under the spring, and then repeated on the other side. New U bolts and plates went on easily. I highly recommend this kit if the goal is added approach and departure clearance. Observations: 1) This kit raised the trailer 5 inches. Made a huge difference. 2) The instructions mention changing / adding bump stops to prevent spring damage from over-flexure. A little research points to 2.5 inches for maximum allowable axle travel, so I still have to source / fab ~4 inch tall bump stops (would be nice to have this all orderable from etrailer) 3) I am going to have the new spring seats welded to the axle tube as recommended, but only because I run brakes on this trailer and want to make sure the seats could handle the added torque of emergency braking. 88832

We have order from etrailer before and had no issues with this type of kit. This time a few parts were missing in our axle kit. We contacted Becky on a Saturday and she promised to work with the manufacturer of the kit first thing Monday to resolve the issue, and she did. The parts shipped Monday and we received them the next day!! This allowed us to finish the installation on time for going out of town. Awesome customer service!! Thank you and God bless 711478

I was a bit hesitant about flipping my axle, but I was tired of dragging the rear every time I pulled out or into a drive. The instruction "SUGGEST" welding the spring perches. I would suggest that be mandatory, especially on a drop axle like mine. I watched the video on how to install this and threw the instructions away. It was just that easy to install. The hardest part was dragging the axle out to the welder. If you need a few extra inches of height, I would strongly suggest flipping your axle with these. The parts were not cheap stuff and after I got them installed they worked great. 394944

I gave a 5 star even though there were Dingle berries on the radius cut outs. They chipped off easy enough, but I used to weld for a living. Also I used my old spring plate along with yours so that the spring was sandwiched between them. That way the radius on the plate still worked with the spring. Everything fit great and was as simple as could be. Great product and I could not make them cheaper or better. 637450

All parts are in box. I watched a few videos and it actually went really well. Instead of tacking I put a full weld on. Raised my camper a solid 6 to 8 inches. People complain about the u bolts being smaller but the u bolts no longer support the weight and the need for larger bolts no longer exist when putting the axle under the spring vs above. Very satisfied. Took 5 hours including lunch break and painting. 657328

I rated this product five stars simply because of the service I got. I wrongly measured my axle and the product would not work for me which was no fault of the product or the company. When I ordered the product they did not have it in stock and I paid extra for two day delivery. I received an email explaining their lack of the product. Before I could contact them for a solution they called me. The lady on the phone was very apologetic, she refunded me my extra money paid for two day delivery and assured me the latest they would be shipping me the product was in four days. Turned out they must have got the product in earlier and they shipped the product overnight and I had the product in four days. Excellent service!! 491646

Great product. Nice quality. I put on a 2004 Starcraft pop up. The only thing I'd suggest is more pictures in the instructions or a video would be nice, regarding how the spacer bolts are placed, etc. I figured it out, but needed to Youtube to make sure a couple times. 511608

High quality product. Straight toward install and has held up very well. Installed in a driveway in a few hours. I installed this kit on my 1974 komfort camper last year and have put highway and dirt road miles on it since. I take it elk hunting and get into some tight rough situations and haven't had any issues. It gave the camper just the right amount of clearance and it pulls level behind my Tundra with a curt anti sway stabilizer hitch. Before this kit my campers ground clearance was awful and I was always worried about puncturing my holding tank. This product fixed that problem. 495328

This kit does exactly what it advertises. Gave me 4 1/2 in of lift. It is very straightforward to install. The only difficult part was getting the trailer up on jack stands. Make sure you do it on level ground, it makes jacking it much easier. I also had an issue with not having enough spacer nuts. I actually bought two kits and both only had 2 nuts and 4 are needed. There is no packing list so use the picture in the etrailer ad. etrailer was great about making it right. 508670

Fast shipping. Parts as described. I liked a feature of this kit iver cheaper kits. This kit has bolts welded to the new spring seats and long nuts to space the new seats from the old seats for install. After install this feature will also increase safety by distributing stress between the new and remaining old spring seat. I think this kit will provide a very safe and stable axle mounting. 932007

  • Best Ways To Raise a Trailer for More Tire Clearance
    I have two options for you to raise your trailer and gain more clearance between the fender and tire. The most cost effective option would be to flip the axles with a Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Kit part # K71-384-00 or part # K71-385-00. That said, this option will only work if your axles are above the leaf springs. If your axles are not above the leaf springs then your only other option would be to use the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit part # LC407131. I am not really...

    Basically, if the bed rail height of your 2018 Ram 2500 is at 60" tall then the distance from the ground to the bottom of the loft on the trailer while level will need to be 66" or very close. The pin box most likely has the ability to be adjusted vertically with different bolt holes on the wing set. However, if these adjustments are not available or still don't allow you to achieve 66" from the ground to the bottom of the loft on the trailer while level then you will need to an axle flip...

    I do have all of the components you will need to flip the axle on your tent trailer but there is not an all inclusive kit per se to do so. However, the kits are pretty basic as all they include are u-bolts, tie plates, and spring seats. For your 1-3/4" diameter axle, I recommend using the U-Bolt Kit part # APUBR-10 with the Spring Seat part # TRSS175 (2). The only difference between these two parts and a kit like the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit is that the spring seats...

  • Is Lifting Both Axles Required When Leveling a Tandem Axle Stock Trailer
    In order to level a trailer that sits nose high you will need to raise both axles, not just one as that would then throw off the alignment/geometry of the suspension drastically and create all sorts of issues. The Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit that you referenced is an excellent cost effective option for lifting/leveling a trailer so this is what I recommend.

  • Should I Use Leaf Spring Spacers Lift Blocks on a Trailer to Raise It
    I do not recommend using a leaf spring spacer (lift block) on your trailer. The reason for this is because they can cause the trailer to become extremely bouncy and rough which is just going to put more stress on your suspension and wear out the trailer faster. Instead, I recommend using an axle flip kit so long as your axle is over the leaf spring pack. If so then you can use part # K71-384-00 if you have a 2-3/8" diameter axle or part # K71-385-00 if you have a 3" diameter axle. This...

You will also need double-eye leaf spring suspension to be able to use one of these kits.

  • Can Different Leaf Springs be Used to Raise Height of Enclosed Cargo Trailer
    The standard amount of space that we recommend having between the top of your tires and the fender is 4" with your trailer unloaded. If this is shorter for your 2006 enclosed trailer then it is definitely wise to switch something up. The only way to really gain clearance by swapping out leaf springs is if your new springs have a larger spring stack than your older springs. So it has less to do with the weight capacity as it does with the dimensions of your leaf springs. You can switch...

  • Do Spring Seats Need to be Cut Off to Install Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit

I have attached the installation instructions and a photo of the finished product where you can see the original spring seat still in place on the axle.
