Equal-i-zer Accessories and Parts - EQ91-00-4250

  • Equal-i-zer
  • Equal-i-zer

Perfect for use with weight-distribution systems, this high-performance lubricant helps to reduce noise and minimize wear and tear in your towing system. Apply to the hitch ball, head assembly or spring-bar sockets as needed.


Features:

  • Provides excellent lubrication for multiple towing applications
    • Apply to your hitch ball, weight-distribution head, spring-bar sockets or any other surface where friction can occur and that is designed to be lubricated
  • Reduces the noise that often occurs with steel-on-steel contact
  • Prolongs the life of your towing system
  • Resists corrosion, even in salt water
  • Works in high-temperature and extreme-pressure situations
  • Contains no heavy metals
  • Made in the USA


Note: Using lubricant on the sway-control brackets of the Equal-i-zer weight-distribution system may diminish the effectiveness of the integrated sway control. Because the Fastway e2 weight-distribution system has only two points of sway-controlling friction - within the L-brackets - using lubricant on those sway-control brackets is not recommended.

Looks and feels like a good product. The proof will be in the pudding. Dumb me...I cut off the crimped end of one tube while opening envelope. You can't teach stupid!!



by:

Just got haven't used it yet. The ordering was good.



by:

Jury is out so far. Desperate to eliminate some of the grinding and creaking of my equal-I-zer hitch. Dabbed some of this lubricant on, but didn't have the time to be too thorough. Sounds a little better already but hope a more thorough application will reduce the grinding to tolerable levels.

Use the lubricant before every other camping trip and it works great. Thanks,



by:

Yes. It works great, is easy to apply and does exactly what it’s says.



by:

Some sort of protectant lube is essential, but I really think any appropriate lube will do. The Equalizer brand isn’t required.



by:

Not sure why I need this but I was told to get it. It shipped out very quickly.



by:

Works good. Similar to other products but prevents metal to metal grinding for which I need it for when towing trailer.



by:

I was running low on my hitch lubricant so, I needed to purchase a fresh supply. This product does an exceptional job of lubricating my Equ-i-lizer hitch and keeps it performing smoothly.



by:

I have assembled and adjusted the Equalizer system for my travel-trailer to SUV. I found the directions clear and concise. The hardware appears to be excellent. I had a question about my specific setup. I called both etrailer and the manufacturer. Both organizations were very responsive and the representatives were knowledgeable and helpful.I am very satisfied with my purchase at this point.

Just fine.Nothing is lacking.



by:

Works well, a cleaner neater answer to protecting the metal to metal surfaces.



by:

I really do appreciate the quick response from etrailer.com. Have a good summer



by:

There was a problem with the shipping of the original order. etrailer took care of it - customer service is fantastic! When all items eventually arrived, they were exactly what I needed.



by:

Small quantities go a long way. Does the job and limits hitch and torsion bar “skwonk”.



by:

The primary delivery of our anti-sway system came quickly and intact but for one of the spring bars. I was not able to attend to this matter due to professional responsibilities. Calling the 800 number I was prepared for standard issue ineffectiveness replete with language and accent disorders. I was pleased to access Heather who is an American of same nature and understanding and we were able to gain a replacement spring bar that also came quickly. I thank etrailer and commend Heather on her efficiency and warm accord.



by:

Was looking for some lube and extra parts for the hitch and thank goodness etrailer has them.

Getting ready to hitch up again and having this around for the start of the season helps out.



by:

it works well. just make sure you have a ball cover. the lube doesn't come of cloth's. I got 2 pairs of shorts lubed up before I put the cover on the ball. etrailer.com has the covers.



by:

Works well. Im sure there are others that do similar, but not knowing which I just bought this after my new hitch was squeeking. It works.

Also goid for your hitch ball, and to put on your leaf springs to all easier rotation of Torklift Stable loads.



by:

I was using a 2" shank with a reducer on my 2017 Ram 3500 with a 2 1/2" hitch. It had way too much play in it for me. Ordered an Equalizer 2 1/2" shank and it is much improved. Typical Equalizer quality. Tori was very friendly and knowledgeable and made ordering a pleasure. Great company!



by:

Great product. I bought a brand new equalizer hitch and first time out it was really noisy. When I got home all the paint was rubbed off, and within a couple weeks it was starting to show a little rust. This particular brand came highly recommended by a few different people, and some forums. After the first trip out after applying this grease it was completely silent, and really smooth. I only applied a little on the l-brackets, so it still has a little friction to reduce the sway. I would highly recommend this grease.



by:

Great product. Use a lite coat on my bars & also to keep my hitch ball coated. A little goes a long way. Good size tube to carry in my RV tool bag.



by:

I haven’t used the product yet but the vendor (eTrailer) was excellent to work with and shipped quickly.



by:

Item as described. Assuming it is better than plain grease.
etrailer did their part getting it to me as part of a larger order. Felt sorry for the UPS guy. One box had all the components to my new 1200/12000 equalizer hitch.



by:

Equal - i -zer Lube is the best I have found for use on the anti-sway hitch parts. I always keep a tube or two handy and make sure the friction surfaces have a liberal application before each tow.



by:

Big tube should last along time.



by:

I have not used the lubricant but I'm sure it's fine. The socket unfortunately was not thin walled & was unusable for the equal-i-zer hitch ball installation.

  • Solution to Make Equal-I-Zer Weight Distribution Less Noisy
    Equal-i-zer systems are pretty noisy but they do offer a lubricant with the part # EQ91-00-4250 which was designed to cut the noise back a lot. Put it on the hitch ball, the spring bar sockets and the spring bar holders on the frame where they slide on.

  • Should Equal-i-zer Spring Bars be Greased
    No you are not going to want to put grease directly on the spring bars (or the brackets) of the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37100ET. That said, you can use the Equal-i-zer High-Performance Lubricant # EQ91-00-4250 in other areas of your system in order to help reduce wear and lessen the noise that may occur from the steel-on-steel friction; this lubricant can be put on the system's hitch ball as well as its spring-bar sockets and hitch head.

  • Can a Lubricant be Used With an Equalizer Weight Distribution Hitch?
    There is a noise reduction lubricant available, the Equal-i-zer High-Performance Lubricant # EQ91-00-4250. This is designed to reduce the noise of their weight distribution systems, though you are correct that using the lubricant on the sway control brackets will hamper that ability, at least to a point. The system will still be effective, and since you very clearly understand that proper set-up/load distribution and attention to how you drive are important factors in controlling your trailers,...

  • Does Fastway e2 Weight Distribution System Have Friction Coating
    The Fastway systems, such as your Fastway e2 Weight Distribution # FA94-00-0800 does not actually have any type of friction coating like some other systems. It is purely steel-on-steel aside from the initial paint. There isn't a spray paint or any type of paint that is going to refresh the system, as the metal-on-metal is perfectly normal. It may look different, but the system itself is going to perform exactly the same as before. If there is a lot of noise be sure to use the Equal-i-zer...

  • Lubricant Use on Screw Threads of the Yakima Landing Pad 8 # Y00228
    I totally understand the concern! When it comes to manufacturer's guidelines, it is always recommended to go "by the book." This is because Yakima puts all of their parts like the Landing Pad 8 for Yakima SkyLine and Control Towers # Y00228 through strenuous physical testing. It is also important to note that not going by the recommendations may void any warranty on the roof rack. With that being said, you are absolutely correct that Yakima recommends using a non-water soluble lubricant...

  • Equal-I-Zer or Curt Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2014 Infiniti QX80
    All weight distribution systems are going to create quite a bit of noise unfortunately. The amount of tension in the setups and the fact there is a lot of metal to metal friction in all of them under all the tension will create quite a bit of noise. The Equal-I-Zer systems like the part # EQ37100ET you referenced are somewhat noisy but you can quiet them down with the correct lube part # EQ91-00-4250 which helps to keep the noise down quite a bit. This kit would be the much better choice...

  • Recommendations for Reducing Noise On Fastway E2 Weight Distribution Hitch
    The Equal-i-zer High-Performance Lubricant # EQ91-00-4250 can be added to the hitch ball and spring bar sockets on the hitch head of the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution # FA92-00-0800 to reduce the amount of squealing you are experiencing. Be sure to not apply this to the sway bar brackets on the trailer, instead you can use the Sway Bracket Jackets # EQ95-01-5150. These nylon sleeves allow for the bars to move quietly and easily slide on the sway brackets.

  • Will Applying Grease to Equal-i-zer Head Assembly Cause Less Friction
    Although the head unit of an Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System, like part # EQ37100ET, does contribute to the sway control, where the arms connect to the L brackets contributes even more. The arms move back and forth and really only apply friction when needed whereas the head unit, where the arms connect, will have much more movement when you are making turns. Because of this it is best to grease the Equal-i-zer head assembly to help increase the lifespan of the weight distribution...

  • Recommended Lubricant for Noisy Weight Distribution System
    The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # HT32218 will have some noise based on the metal on metal friction designed to control sway. If there is excessive noise, you can use the Equal-i-zer High-Performance Lubricant - 4 oz # EQ91-00-4250 which can be used on the hitch ball, the head and the bar sockets, but is not intended to be used on the bars and lift brackets because that would minimize the sway control aspect.

  • Is Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System Better At Combating Sway Then Blue Ox
    Sam, both the Blue Ox SwayPro part # BXW1000 and Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control part # EQ37100ET are great options. The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control can be loud like you mentioned because of it's friction sway control however it is going to provide a much better towing experience than the Blue Ox because of it's 4 point friction contact. The 4 point friction sway control helps to keep the trailer in line to combat sway. The...

  • What Lubrication Can I Use With My Equal-i-Zer WDS To Reduce Noise?
    Equal-i-Zer recommends to lube the friction surfaces regularly with the: -Equal-i-zer High-Performance Lubricant # EQ91-00-4250 for your Equal-i-Zer WDS, like the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System w/ 4-Point Sway Control # EQ37100ET. Additionally, Equal-i-Zer mentions that some noise can be heard from the arm sliding along the L brackets. In this case, it's best NOT to use grease, but to use the Sway Bracket Jackets for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems # EQ95-01-5150.

  • How to Reduce Noise on a Weight Distribution Hitch
    I have a solution for you but the nylon pieces you are asking about item # EQ95-01-5150 don't work on round bars. In order to reduce the creaking and pops you're hearing you will need to do some lubrication; I recommend using the Equal-i-zer High-Performance Lubricant item # EQ91-00-4250. You will want to apply this to your round bar sockets, hitch ball and weight distribution head. Do not put this on the brackets. This should help reduce some of the noise.

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Camping Trailer
    The most important thing to know when selecting a weight distribution system is your total tongue weight, which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your 2016 Ram 1500. Your total tongue weight needs to be in the middle of the weight distribution system's tongue weight capacity in order for the system to work effectively. The Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System # EQ37060ET has a tongue weight capacity between 200 lbs...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution With Sway Control for 5,200 lb Travel Trailer
    While the Curt MV Weight Distribution System with Friction Sway Control # C17062 can be used with 2" Hitch Ball # A-90, this system is designed for a trailer with a total tongue weight between 800 lbs and 1,000 lbs, which is too much for your 2019 Sonic SN234VBH travel trailer with a 5,200 lb GVWR. That's because your tongue weight is between 10% and 15% of your trailer's GVWR and the right system will fall in the middle of the weight distribution system's tongue weight capacity. So...

  • Best Weight Distribution System for Grand Design Momentum 25G Trailer With 11,500 lb GVWR
    For the Grand Design Momentum 25G the best Equal-i-zer weight distribution system is the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution System - 14,000 lbs GTW, 1,400 lbs TW # EQ37140ET. The reason for that is you want to choose your system based on total tongue weight (TTW), which is the tongue weight of your fully loaded and ready to go trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your truck. The 1,150 lb hitch weight you mentioned is, according to Grand Design, based on average weight....

You will want to apply this to your spring bar sockets, hitch ball and weight distribution head, though not the brackets. This should reduce the squeaking that is causing unwanted attention.

    Yes, you'll need a corresponding shank for your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty's Class V 2-1/2" Hitch Receiver to work with the weight distribution system you have in mind. The Equal-i-zer Shank # EQ90-02-4900 will work with both your truck and your WD, and is adjustable for your rig to be lined up and leveled correctly when connected to the head assembly.

  • Determining Normal Wear For Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Hitch Components
    It is normal to see the wear on the Tunnion Bar # FA92-02-1099, L-Bracket # FA93-02-5150 and parts of the Trunnion Head # FA92-02-1044 on a Fastway e2 Weight Distribution # FA92-00-1000. Typically on the trunnion head you will add Lubricant # EQ91-00-4250 to the pins which go into the sockets on the Head # FA92-02-1255. There is a small flat part on the Trunnion head which can make contact with the hitch head as well. This is not an issue and you can place some of the lubricant on this...

    Equal-i-zer has a small section in the owner's manual for the Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution w/ 4-Point Sway Control # EQ37101ET that lists where to check for wear and places to add some lube as needed. You'll essentially just need to grease the head of the hitch where the spring bar receivers touch the head with their specific lubricant # EQ91-00-4250. I wouldn't go crazy with the lube either, just enough of a coating to prevent sticking or corrosion build up. You'll definitely want...

  • Troubleshooting Installation of WDS Sway Bars That are Too Tight
    It sounds like there is too much tension on your bars, so I recommend adding a 6” x 6” block or some other support under the jack to make the extension and raising of the trailer faster and protect the jack from being extended to max travel. The higher you raise the trailer the easier to install or remove spring bars from L-brackets. If you're still having trouble feel free to come back and we'll be happy to help.

    The Sway Bracket Jackets for Equal-i-zer Weight Distribution Systems part # EQ95-01-5150 are compatible with the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control part # FA94-00-1000. They will slightly diminish the sway control feature because the sway control of the Fastway systems is designed with steel-on-steel friction. If you add the Sway Bracket Jackets they are nylon, not metal which limits the steel on steel contact to help with noise. You will still have some friction with...
