Video Transcript for Review of Lippert Components Trailer Axles - Axle Riser - LC270682

Today we'll be taking at look at the axle riser kit. This for single diamond torsion axles from Lippert. This is going to give you a three and a half inch lift for those trailers where you want to get a little bit more height off of your trailer. This will be especially important for any kind of small campers or enclosed trailers, anything where you might have some sewer lines or anything that's going to be hanging down below the trailer bed. This helps to extend it up a little bit and give you more clearance, so you don't have to worry about those things coming into contact with anything while you're out on the road.We get our two risers, one for either side, so it's going to work for a single axle. Then we'll get our eight bolts, washers, and locknuts.

These are going to be compatible with side mount or top mount torsion axle mounting brackets. And you want to make sure that your axle are the diamond shape, not the square. That would be turned to the side. So this is going to be for those ones that are kind of turned on their corner. And, again, this is a specific fit for the Lippert axles.

As far as dimensions with these or brackets, each measure about 12 inches long and then three and a half inches wide, three and a half inches tall. And then about two inches wide.The distance for the mounting holes center to center is about nine inches. And that's going to be the same for our other two mounting holes, nine inches apart center to center. Those mounting holes for the ones on the side here are just under three-quarters of an inch wide by an inch and a quarter. And that's going from the end of the oblong hole to the other side.

That's the inside diameter there, about three-quarters of an inch to one and a quarter. And then going in the other direction, it's again going to be about three-quarters or about 11/16ths. And then just about an inch for those smaller holes.We do have a lot of information available here at etrailer.com. If you have any additional questions be sure to find our experts and find that information that you need. If you need the square version of the same kit that will give you three and a half inches of rise on a single torsion axle, that part number is available here at etrailer.com, and that's going to be LC382741.

That's for the square torsion axles. And that's going to do it for our look at the axle riser kit for the single diamond torsion axle.

Used to lift my Winnebago Micro Minnie 1800BH. Installed in about 2 hours with use of impact wrench. Did not come with instructions or torque specs so had to look that up online. No noticeable difference in trailer handling, but now I 'm not so worried about dragging my stabilizers and sewer. Very satisfied! 653075

Installed this lift onto my 2017 1700 bh micro minnie Winnebago travel trailer myself in 3 hours. Easy to install and so far works as planned. 638424

The riser kit would have been a cinch to install if I had a proper overhead lift and a more powerful pneumatic driver for removing and tightening the bolts. As it was, it took me about 4 hours using a jack, jack stands, and hand tools, as I only had about a 1/6-turn wrench "swing" on most of the bolts while lying on my back. The nuts in this kit are "staked" (deliberately slightly deformed threads), which are great for foolproof self-locking, but it greatly increases the difficulty of running them onto the bolts. The torque required just to run the nuts home is significant. Also, only eight washers are provided, requiring re-using the eight original washers for a proper installation with a washer under both the bolt head and nut. Make sure you understand the difference between a "square" axle and a "diamond" axle before ordering. Both axles are square in cross-section, but the "diamond" axle is cocked up onto one corner. The kits have different bolt spacing and are not interchangeable. All said, the components of this kit are of excellent quality, and the welding and machining are first-rate. 634479

Works awesome for Winnie drops. See before and after. Easy to install, if you can change a tire you can do this. Hardest part was jacking up the trailer. 658798

These are the correct part for the 3500lb Lippert diamond torsion axle under our 2016 R-Pod. It too me about an hour and a half to install them. Raise the camper, support the frame in front and rear of axle, with jack under axle bracket remove the two factory bolts, lower axle, place riser in, raise axle up, then install the 4 bolts/nuts. Don't forget to cut the zip tie to give the brake wiring harness some slack. In one photo the axle is down, the other is the riser in place and bolts being added. 602263

  • Lift Kit for R-Pod With Torsion Axle
  • I was unable to find a reference to a Lippert 201327 axle but my understanding is the 2009 R-Pod M-173 does use a torsion axle. Do you know if yours is a square torsion axle with a 3,500 lb capacity? The capacity should be on the tag. If it is then you can use the Axle Riser Kit - Single Square Torsion Axle - 3-1/2" Lift # LC382741. If you have a diamond torsion axle rated for 3,500 lbs then you would want to use the Axle Riser Kit - Single Diamond Torsion Axle - 3-1/2" Lift # LC270682.

  • Lift Kit Needed for Lippert 7K Torsion Axle
  • We do have a lift kit for your Lippert 7K torsion axle but the Dexter Torflex Lift Kits like part # K71-725-02 are designed to fit specific Dexter torsion axles. For example, the above mentioned kit will only fit a #12 Torflex axle that has a 5,500 - 7,000 lb weight capacity. The correct lift kit for you is part # LC270682 if you have a diamond torsion axle or part # LC382741 if you have a square torsion axle. These provide you with a 3-1/2" lift and are for single axle applications.

  • How To Lift a Forest River R-Pod Trailer
  • The correct lift kit to use on your Forest River R-Pod Trailer will depend on the year. If you have a post 2014 then you will need to use the Axle Riser Kit part # LC382741 for square shaped axles or part # LC270682 for diamond shaped axles as Forest River switched to Lippert Torsion Axles for the R-Pod in 2014. If you have a pre 2014 then you will need to use the Torflex Lift Kit part # K71-707-01 as Forest River used Dexter Torsion Axles before 2014. I always recommend that you check...

  • Torflex Lift Kit Options for Single Axle Camper

  • Recommended Lift Kit for a 2009 Thor Skamper Kodiak 30BHSL
  • I do have lift kits available for torsion axle trailers however, I would need to know exactly what axle you have on your 2009 Thor Skamper Kodiak 30BHSL in order to recommend a set. In order to determine what type of torsion axle you have, you will need to look on the center of the axle for the axle tag.

  • Spacing of Holes on Axle Riser Kit for Diamond Torsion Axle
  • I reached out to the manufacturer, Lippert, who sent me the accompanying diagram showing different measurements, including the spacing of the Axle Riser Kit - Single Diamond Torsion Axle # LC270682. As you can see, from center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole the measurement is 9 inches. This kit is designed to add 3-1/2 inches of height between your axle and your trailer's frame, and should be used on single, diamond torsion axles that have a 3,500 lb capacity.

  • Lift Kit For Dexter Torsion Axle On 2001 Fleetwood Prowler Tandem Axle Trailer
  • There are lift kits available for your axle but the Lippert Axle Riser kit part # LC270682 is not what you need. I can see that you have a Dexter Torflex Torsion axle. I researched the 2001 Fleetwood Prowler and it weighs around 6200 lbs, so it sounds like you have 2- 3500 lb axles on the trailer. I recommend the Torflex Dexter Lift Kit part # K71-707-02. The kit is designed for Torflex Dexter axles between 2300 and 4,000 lb capacities. It adds a 2-5/8 inch lift to your trailer setup....

I attached a picture that shows what the diamond style of Lippert axle looks like as well. If you have a different axle on your trailer let me know what you have and I'll see what would work best.

  • The lift kits we have for torsion axles are the Dexter kits for their Torflex axles like # K71-725-02 or the lift kits for Lippert axles like # LC270682.

  • Can Suspension of 1973 Airstream Globetrotter be Lifted
  • One way to lift a trailer is to install an over under kit. This would move the trailer axles from being above the leaf springs to being below them. 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...
