Replaces 2 rubber equalizers for E-Z Flex heavy-duty rubber suspension system by Dexter Axle (K71-652-00).

- K71-654-00

Pending road test, but seem to be very good quality and it is nice they are can be greased for longer life. On my application I went from a 4" high equalizer high link to this (2" high), but welded an extension on the trailer frame to maintain the prior spring/suspension geometry, but I don't think it is required, I primarily did this as my other frame upgrades would have interfered with the grease fittings, so the 2" extensions gave needed clearance in my application.

- K71-654-00

They are doing well for us. Only issue was after installation and a trip when I went to grease the pivot points, one of the zero fittings came off. Looks like the hole was never tapped completely. Just a few threads in the beginning. I ran a tap in it and installed a new zero fitting. This would have much easier before installation.

- K71-654-00

I worked with William over the phone and was able to order the correct part. It arrived yesterday and it is the right part for my RV. Great quality, seems like a fair price and great customer service by William B.

- K71-654-00

They were easy to install, and have worked like a charm. We would recommend these to anyone looking!

- K71-654-00

Ordering was easy and the product got here four days earlier that expected.

- K71-654-00

They sent what I ordered and it arrived before I even arrived at the delivery before bI got there.

- K71-654-00

I got exactly what I needed for a fair price and received it in a very timely manner.

  • How to Determine if E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System Will Fit
    The Replacement 5-5/8" Equalizers for E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System # K71-654-00 you referenced are simply replacements for the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle - 5-5/8" Equalizers # K71-652-00. To determine if these will fit your 5,200 lb axle you need to know what equalizer you currently have. The reason is this suspension system is designed to be a replacement for standard equalizers which are 5-5/8" long from center to center of their bolt...

  • Recommended Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer for 2004 NUWA Hitchhiker II LS to Widen Axle Hanger Spacing
    I recommend using the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle - 5-5/8" Equalizers # K71-652-00 which is compatible with axle spacing of 33 inches on center. It is okay to move your outside hangers to give you more space but there are standard spaces that work well for tandem axle trailers that you will want to stick to. If you want 35 inch axle spacing, then you will move the hangers and use kit # K71-653-00 which has wider equalizers to make up for the larger spacing....

  • Dexter E_Z Flex Equalizer Upgrade for a 2004 Gulf Stream Ameri-Lite Camper
    Replacement equalizers # K71-654-00 are only part of what you would need. These equalizers require special shackle straps that are available in the kit which is what you would need. The kit is # K71-652-00. It comes with all the parts needed to upgrade the equalizers to a Dexter E-Z Flex system. Whether or not your axles are underrated for the trailer I cannot say for sure. There are several different 2004 Gulf Stream Ameri-Lite models, both 5th wheels and travel trailers, so if you...

  • Wet Shackle Bolts to Reduce Noise from Tandem Axle Travel Trailer Suspension
    If you think the cause for the noise on your 2015 Jayco Whitehawk 24RBS tandem-axle travel trailer is from the normal travel of the suspension components (leaf springs, equalizers and shackle straps), you might switch over to wet bolts. The squeaking noises from trailer suspension can be reduced by replacing standard shackle bolts with wet bolts. Wet bolts like # TRFA71063 and # 126B2 have a grease zerk fitting that allows you to maintain a layer of grease between the surfaces of those...

  • Is there a Lifespan for the Rubber Bushings in E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension Systems
    Like most things, the longevity of the rubber bushings in the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System depends on numerous factors including, but not limited to, how much the trailer is used and the weather conditions. But they should last a very long time in most situations if not the entire life of the trailer. If you can compress the bushings by hand then they are worn out and should be replaced. Severe dry rot is also something to check for. It would have to be really bad dry...

  • Can Rubber Bushings Be Replaced On E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Equalizers
    The rubber core of the Dexter Equalizers like part # K71-654-00 are not an item that can be replaced. If the bushing would become damaged the entire assembly would need to be replaced.

  • Bolt Used on Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer System Sheared Off and Damaged Trailer Tire
    If you had originally put on just the equalizers # K71-654-00 and not the kit # K71-652-00 then that could be part of the problem you had. The E-Z Flex systems use special shackle straps and wet bolts. Considering the damage that was done it is possible that there is unseen damage to the system or that the same thing could happen on the other side. I recommend replacing the whole thing with a new kit. That way you will get all the parts you need and they will be all new parts so you're...

  • Higher Capacity EZ Flex Equalizer for Fifth Wheel Trailer
    Since you have the need for a higher capacity equalizer what you would want most likely is the part # K71-653-00 whic has an 8k capacity. Measure the distance between your axles. As long as they are 35 inches apart this is the correct kit.

  • Recommended Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers To Replace 6" Equalizers On Trailer
    Since the horizontal mounting holes on your current equalizers are 6" apart on center I recommend the Replacement 5-5/8" Equalizers for E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle # K71-654-00 which has a width range of 5-1/4" - 6-1/4" which will fit your application perfectly. If you are wanting the new shackle straps to match you can use the # K71-652-00 which includes the equalizers, shackle straps, wet bolts, and everything else needed to complete the installation. I...

  • Replacement 5-5/8 Equalizers for Enhanced Road Shock Protection and Smoother Towing
    The Replacement 5-5/8" Equalizers for E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle # K71-654-00 will work well to replace your solid equalizers. You can simply use your same shackle straps and bolts and swap out your equalizers for the road dampening suspension enhancement. These will work well with your tandem 5,200 lb Lippert axles. If you want to use wet bolts, you can upgrade your bolts to # 126B2 for easy maintenance.

  • How to Determine Which Over Under Axle Kit Would Be Needed
    The diameter of your trailer axle will determine the size of the parts that you will need to order. If your axle is 3 inches diameter, the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit, # K71-385-00, would be a great choice and if your axle is 2-3/8 inch diameter you could use the Over-Under Kit, # K71-384-00. These kits can be installed without welding but the manufacturer strongly recommends having the new spring seat tacked in place on the other side of the trailer axle. Some refer...

  • Can an EZ Flex Equalizer Replace a Shorter One on a Trailer
    Left to right the EZ Flex Equalizer part # K71-654-00 matches up perfectly as it has a range of 5-1/4 inch to 6-1/4 inch. The height will be a little bit taller as it sits 5-5/8 which will be 1-1/8 inches taller than what you have. To compensate for this you can go with a taller shackle so that the spring gets carried at the same height. You would need to measure your current shackles and then check out the link to the page I attached that has all of the shackles we carry. You would...

  • Bolts for 5-5/8" Equalizers for E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System
    The Replacement 5-5/8" Equalizers for E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle # K71-654-00 you asked about will use the Dexter Heavy Duty Suspension Upgrade Kit for Single Axle Trailers - Double Eye Springs # K71-358-00. If you want the replacement center bolts you will use # 007-003-01 and nut # 006-007-01.

  • Replacement Equalizers for EZ-Flex Suspension
    Thank you for the photo; due to the damage of the equalizer on your E-Z Flex Suspension System # K71-652-00 what you need to do is replace that equalizer. If just one is damaged you can replace it with a single Replacement 5-5/8" Equalizer for E-Z Flex # 013-143-03 although if the other side is showing wear I recommend replacing both, which is part # K71-654-00. I also recommend making sure you grease the equalizers every 3 months or 3,000 miles with red grease such as # L11390...

  • Can Mor/Ryde LRE Suspension Hangers Be Replaced by Dexter EZ-Flex
    To replace your current Mor Ryde LRE system and go with an EZ-Flex system is possible, but you will need to replace the center hangers as well as the equalizers to do this. To pick out the correct equalizer will require you to measure the distance between the bolt holes from left to right on your current setup so that you can get the correct EZ Flex. If the distance is between 7-1/4 and 8-1/4 inches the part # K71-653-00 would be the correct equalizer. If the distance is between...

  • How Often Should Dexter EZ-Flex Equalizers Get Greased
    I spoke to my contact at Dexter and he informed me that they recommend greasing the E-Z Flex equalizers every three months or 3,000 miles. I also attached a pretty helpful guide to how often trailer components should be maintained. For grease Dexter recommends wheel bearing grease. For that we recommend the red grease part # L11390. A shock kit would help your trailer and would work well with the EZ Flex system but since you said you have square axles we don't have a kit for that....

  • Dexter Axle Easy Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension Equalizers With Longer Shackle Straps
    The E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle part # K71-652-00 does have 2-1/4" shackles so it would raise your suspension system up a bit if you use the shorter shackles. However, you can use the Dexter Axle Equalizers part # K71-654-00 and 3-1/2" Long shackle straps part # TRSL350 to make sure you are not raising your suspension.

  • Correct Replacement E-Z Flex Suspension System for a 1996 Holiday Rambler
    The equalizers in the kits # K71-652-00 and # K71-654-00 that you referenced are actually the exact same. The only difference between these kits is that the 652 comes with replacement shackle straps while the 654 only comes with the equalizers and no shackle straps. So to choose between the 2 is just a matter of your shackles being in good shape or not. Even though your axle spacing is 32" as opposed to 33" I think you'll still be okay with this kit. Basically you just want to make sure...

  • Piecing Together an E-Z Flex Equalizer System with 3 Inch Shackle Straps
    Dexter Heavy Duty Suspension Upgrade Kit # K71-358-00 is exactly what you need though on a tandem axle you would need 2 sets. E-Z Flex System # K71-652-00 does not use wet bolts to hang the equalizer part. It has grease fittings on top for that so you can just use a regular bolt. So you would use # K71-654-00 for the equalizers by themselves, 2 of kit # K71-358-00, and either reuse the hanger bolts you have or use 2 of # TRFA73Z916DLNZ or a similar bolt.

  • Choosing the Right Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension for Replacing Standard Equalizers
    You shouldn't loose any wheel clearance with the Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension Kit. First you will want to see which of the Equalizers you need. There is a 6,000lb Equalizers # K71-654-00 (5-5/8") and 8,000lb Equalizers # K71-655-00 (7-3/4"). The 6,000lb is for hubs spread 33" on center and 8,000lb for hubs 35" on center. If you choose either the Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension 6,000lb Kit # K71-652-00 or 8,000lb Kit # K71-653-00 they will include 2-1/4" shackle straps. If your current shackle...
