I give a "good" rating only due to small discrepancies such as seen in attached pics. The product is not powder coated, as claimed, yet appears to be enamel baked on without primer. I went no further than opening the box and viewing the contents, after seeing the ragged condition the product was in (see pics). Seems strong enough to do what was intended, just not on my TT. Will I buy from etrailer in the future? YOU BET! 410954

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Torflex in Accessories and Parts


I ordered this kit in mid-May after seeing an email about it from a competitor site to etrailer.com. I ordered from the other site then got an email stating that the kit was on back order from Dexter until the end of June. I googled the Dexter part number and found that etrailer.com also sold it, and even better, etrailer was offering free freight and a slightly lower cost. Since the kit is heavy, free freight would save me about $40, so I cancelled the order with the first company and re-ordered from etrailer.com. I got an email from them as well about the extended back order but then, I also got a follow up call from them explaining the situation. The call was an extra added touch that I appreciated. Then, right at the end of May, I got an email stating that my Dexter kit had shipped, so I figured that etrailer.com must have put some pressure on Dexter to get off their butt and ship it! The kit itself was great, really well made parts, powder coated and heavy gauge. Honestly, I am surprised that they sell it for only $150. The install is tricky and will take you 6 hours if you are good with tools and like wrenching. Don't attempt this project on your own if you are not. Pay a trailer guy $400 to do it. You have to keep the axles aligned when you drop them...and the bolt placement is not great so you have to have hands that can fit in the tight cramped space and be able to get a wrench on the. Over all, I am very happy with the lift, it was a pretty simple and cost effective way for me to get better clearance for my Airtsream.....Airstreams are notoriously low and with the approach I have from my street to the driveway, I constantly battled dragging either the hitch or the rear. This kit solved that. I am super satisfied and highly recommend it if you are in the same situation as I was. Buy it from etrailer.com, they have the best customer service I have experienced when buying trailer and camping items on the internet. 258114


Comments

The lift kit has worked out very well. I notice that things I. The trailer bounce around a little more since I did the lift but overall I am still glad I did it since I no longer worry about dragging the rear end of the trailer when entering or leaving my driveway. Very happy with my purchase!

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Torflex in Accessories and Parts


Lift kit was used on Jayco X17Z Camper, as I wanted to do more rural camping and gain better ground clearance, as this camper is very low in the first place. Product was great and everything fitted nicely with no issues, see pictures. The only issue I had was with the nuts and bolts, they were quite tight on the threads, certainly won't come undone. 404202

Review from a similar Dexter Axle Torflex in Accessories and Parts


This is a Dexter lift kit for there Torflex axles. The hardware is good quality. My only negative opinion about it is the quality of the paint job. No primer, most of the paint fell off in the box! I will need to knock what little paint is left off and do it correctly before I can install it. etrailer did a great job of communication and was quick to ship. Accurate description and the correct part. Thanks etrailer! 394215

Great. Really helps on rough roads and steep driveway transitions. Dont notice a mileage difference. Airstream should use an axle with steeper angle!

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Can I Lift A Trailer With Torsion-Axle Rubber Ride Suspension?
  • We have two lift kit options for Dexter Axles. We have the Torflex Lift Kit - Tandem Axle - 2-7/8" Lift # K71-724-02 for number 11 axles or # K71-725-02 for number 12 axles. This will lift your trailer by that specified amount by raising your trailer frame. Either kit will raise your center of gravity slightly, which will change a little of the feel of the trailer, but it won't make a huge difference in handling.

  • Because you would be increasing the distance from the frame to the axle when using Torflex Lift Kit - Tandem Axle - 3-1/8" Lift Item # K71-725-02 it would affect the fit of the shocks on your trailer.

  • How to Decide Which Dexter Torflex Lift Kit to Use on New Trailer
  • To identify the type of Dexter Torflex axle you have on your trailer, there should be a tag or plate located somewhere on the axle itself that lists the part number and weight capacity.
