Video Transcript for Review of Lippert Components - Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - LC407131

Today, we're going to take a look at the Lippert Components tandem spring axle 2 inch lift kit. This kit will add approximately two inches of additional ground clearance to a tandem axle trailer with leaf springs, so it allows for further unique trailer customization possibilities. And again, it is for use with tandem axles.We're going to go through all the parts here that are included, laid out on the table. You get 12 of these lift kit hanger plates, 12 of the 9/16 by 18 4-inch long bolts, 24 of the 9/16 washers, and 12 of the 9/16 by 18 nuts. Right here, you get six of the hanger spacers, six of the 9/16 shoulder bolts, with 7/16 threaded in, and then six of the 7/16 by 20 flange nuts.That should do it for the review on the Lippert Components tandem spring axle 2 inch lift kit.

So far the 5th wheel trailer pulls much better with the lift kit. I also installed new leaf springs and EZ Flex Equalizers. The trailer now sits level when hooked up to my F350. The lift seems to be overall about 3". The one thing I think customers should be aware of is with these older lighter duty early 2000's fifth wheels is how they originally manufactured the suspension. In the case of my Keystone Cougar; the main frame runners are narrow I beams about 6" tall by 2" wide. Welded to the main runners on the frame are "U" Channel brackets that one could euphemistically call suspension shackles. This is where the leaf springs mounted to originally. With tandem axle trailers, tight turns tend to make the axles walk or flex the tires quite a bit. Now I have extended that "U" bracket and the flex on tight turns is greatly exacerbated. I will have to watch for metal fatigue on this part or weld some stiffener brackets in place. I wouldn't trade the ease of lift though. I have struggled with how to lift my rig since I got it 5 years ago. $500 is sure cheaper than $25 - $65k for another newer factory lifted 5er. 647379

I put these on my 2016 Highland Ridge Light LF295FBH. Installation was fairly straight forward. I completed one side at a time and the first side took me twice as long as the 2nd. In all, I completed the install in about 3--4 hours. I recommend having a good set of 6 ton jack stands, a good floor jack and new quality 9/16 drill bit On a last note, I also recommend ordering a new set of bushings when ordering the kit since you will be going through the trouble of dropping the axles anyways. Mine had generic plastic bushings that had worn out, so I replaced with a set of Never Fail Bushings (LC279685) after not finding locally. 769923

  • Installation of Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit LC407131
    Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131 provides approximately 2-inches of additional ground clearance for a tandem axle leaf spring suspension trailer. This is not a block kit but an adjustable extension kit. The kit requires no welding, but just some drilling into your existing hangers for installation. I have linked the complete instructions and the included photo shows how the kit's main components, the hanger plates and hanger spacers, install along with your existing...

  • How To Raise a Trailer Without Flipping Axle
    In order to raise a leaf sprung axle without changing the orientation of the axle tube in relation to the leaf spring pack, you really only have one option which is the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit part # LC407131 and this provides 2" of lift unlike the axle over/under kits which provide upwards of 3-4" of lift. Please note, for a single axle trailer application I do recommend using shackle straps like part # TRSL275 on the rear leaf spring hanger in order to allow for proper...

  • Can Lippert 2" Lift Kit be Installed on 5th Wheel Trailer With Lippert Correct Track System
    I do have a solution for you, but the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131 is essentially the old Correct Track system, just without the yellow adjustment blocks so they can't be used together. I confirmed this with my contact at Lippert. The other option to look into is an over-under conversion kit. From what I could find you should have 3" diameter axles so you need the kit # K71-385-00. What this does is move your axle so it is located under your leaf springs instead...

  • How to Level Trailer that Sits Nose High After Adjusting Hitch Height for Bed Rail Clearance
    Ideally your 5th wheel trailer sits as level as possible and also there's at least 6 inches of clearance between the overhang of the trailer and the bed rails of the truck. In a situation like yours where having the needed bed rail clearance causes the trailer to sit nose high you would have to lift the trailer suspension, or if the truck happens to have a lift kit you'd need to remove it and go back to stock ride height. For a tandem axle trailer like yours we do have a 2 inch lift...

    The correct lift kit for your 2019 Grand Design 17MKE is the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131. This lift kit will give you 2 inches of lift and has uses hanger plates that drills into your hanger which is what will give your trailer its lift. I have added a link to a video review of this kit as well as a link to the installation instructions which I recommend taking a look at. The other option for you is not technically a lift kit, but what is called an over/under...

    Yes, the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit part # LC407131 is the solution to your problem which is to raise the trailer in order to sit level with the tow vehicle. This problem is actually very common nowadays as trucks continue to sit higher and higher which is why aftermarket lift kits such as the above are available.

  • Will a Trailer Lose Height If Only the Center Lippert Correct Track Extension Is Removed
    I do have an option for you but the reason your trailer dropped in overall height is because you removed the center hanger extension which is used in the Lippert Correct Track. In order to then go back to the ride height you had before the equalizers were replaced you would need to re-install the center hanger extension. That said, the Lippert Correct Track was actually discontinued by Lippert due to issues they were having with the system so now would be a good time to get rid of the problem...

  • How Difficult Is the Installation of the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit
    The most difficult parts of installing the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131 is jacking the trailer up to release pressure from the leaf springs and then making sure everything is level. Aside from that you are essentially removing the wet bolts and replacing them with the new bracket and bolts. The installation instructions have been linked to this page for you to reference. Another option that is actually more cost effective is to install an over-under conversion...

  • Can Spacers be Used to Raise the Height of a 2013 Keystone Cougar 27RKS
    We have heard of people using spacer blocks to raise the height of their trailer along with the over-under conversion kit you referenced or the Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131 and everything seemed to work okay so I would say you can use it to raise the height of your 2013 Keystone Cougar 27RKS but it isn't the best or recommended option. The best option would be to use tall hangers to make up the difference. This means that you wouldn't be using longer U-Bolts that may not have been...

  • Can I Use the Lippert Tandem Axle Lift Kit with a MORryde Suspension Enhancement
    The short answer to this question is that-yes- the parts included in the MORryde kit will work just fine. The Lippert Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131 simply elongates the hangers on your trailer to provide the 2" of lift. Because it's only creating new hangers and the wet bolts in the kit you're installing only go on the shackles, they're going to work just fine. With that being said, you may need longer bolts when installing the equalizers onto the hangers, but these are not wet bolts.

  • How To Stop Tires From Hitting Bottom Of Fenders and Wearing
    Generally speaking, there will need to be between 3-4" of clearance between the top of the tire and the bottom of the fender. In regards to how to fix this, I would rate new leaf springs first but only if they are worn which is causing the trailer to sag as aside from this you would not get much lift if at all. The best and easiest option would be to install the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit part # LC407131. The tires will also need replaced but you would most likely not be...

  • How To Raise a Keystone Outback Trailer with Tandem 3 Inch Axles
    In order to raise the suspension on your Keystone Outback you have two options, the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit part # LC407131 which lifts the trailer about 2" or the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit part # K71-385-00 which lifts the trailer around 5"-6". The Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit is easier to install but the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit is more cost effective. Then, in order to upgrade the ride quality you can add a...

  • Can Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit be Used with Dexter E-Z Flex
    I don't see any reason why the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131 can't be used together with the Dexter E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System. The Lift Kit essentially just makes your hangers longer which won't affect the performance of the E-Z Flex system.

  • Best Way to Add at Least 2 Inches of Lift to Forest River 5th Wheel
    We do have a really good option for you to add a couple of inches of lift to your 2017 Forest River Sabre fifth wheel.

The accompanying photo is one that a customer sent in after installing the kit, and I have added a link to a video review...

  • Best Way To Lift a 2009 K-Z Sportsman 245 5th Wheel Trailer
    In order to lift your 2009 K-Z Sportsman 245 5th Wheel Trailer, I recommend using the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit part # LC407131 which will give you an additional 2" of lift. This will be the least labor intensive option we have for you by far. If your axles are not already under the leaf springs then you can move them there with the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit part # K71-384-00 or part # K71-385-00 which would lift the trailer equal to the diameter...

  • Lift Kit Recommendation for 2018 Forest River Wildcat 30GT to Add 2 inches of Height
    We have a 2 inch lift kit you can install on your 2018 Forest River Wildcat 30gt which will help greatly with the nose high situation you have now. For that you'd want the # LC407131. This basically attaches to the hangers of the suspension and spaces out the connection between them and the suspension by an additional 2 inches.

  • Can Spacer Blocks be Used on Fifth Wheel Trailer to Get Nose Down
    We do not generally recommend using a spacer block because it can cause the trailer to bounce more and its suspension to wear out more quickly. So while this can be done, it isn't the best solution, particularly if those inches can be had by your son getting smaller tires. One option is to use the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131, which will add 2 inches of lift, so long as the trailer is a tandem axle. I have added a link to a video review for you to take a look at...

  • Best Way to Lift Jayco Eagle
    The best way to lift your Jayco Eagle is called an over/under conversion kit, which moves your trailer's leaf springs to the top of your axle and lifts your trailer approximately the same amount as your axle's diameter plus the height of the leaf spring pack (please keep in mind this conversion kit is for use with double-eye springs only). I have added a photo which displays how the kit will look after being installed. If you have a 2-3/8" round axle you would need Dexter Trailer Springs...

  • Will Upgrading 1621 Pin Box on 2017 Crusader Lite Allow 5th Wheel to Sit Level
    I reached out to my contact at Lippert who said that the correct pin box for your 2017 Crusader Lite is the 1621 # LC1191191. Although we do have replacement pin boxes and pin box upgrades, like the 5th Airborne Premium # 5AB-E1621-16K, I have a few things for you to check first. There are some adjustment holes on the wings of the pin box so you can try adjusting the height of the pin box. Most 5th wheel hitches have height adjustment options as well so that is something else you can...

  • Can Skid Wheels be Used to Help Keep 5th Wheel Trailer from Bottoming Out with Steep Driveway
    You definitely can install the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979013 on your 42' 5th wheel but it is worth noting that the wheel and caster plate measures 7-1/2" tall so if the 16-1/4" that you measured is from the frame rail then that means your ground clearance will be reduced to 8-3/4" which really isn't much at all. If your frame sits below the skirting on your 5th wheel trailer then you should be able to use a shorter option like the Ultra-Fab Steel Micro-Roller # UF48-979021 which...

  • Will Over-Under Kit Raise Height of 5th Wheel Trailer with Leaf Springs Above the Axles
    If your leaf springs are already located above your trailer axle then the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-385-00 won't change anything as its designed to relocate axles from above the leaf springs to below the leaf springs. There are a few other ways that you can still add some height to your trailer though. We have the Lippert Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131 which will raise your trailer up to 2", you can change out your hangers (see linked list of products),...

  • Leaf Spring Hits Equalizer After New Leaf Spring Install
    The most common mistake when replacing a trailer leaf spring is measuring the existing leaf spring while the trailer is loaded (wheels on the ground) and not accounting for the leaf spring lengthening over time. Therefore, it sounds like the new leaf spring you have may be a bit longer than the one it replaced which is why it is now hitting the equalizer. This would be the only reason that this happened if the equalizers and shackle straps remained the same. If you still have the old...
