Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Third Axle Replacement Equalizer - 013-146-03

Hi there I'm Michael with etrailer.com, today we're gonna take a quick look at this replacement E-Z Flex third axle equalizer. This is going to replace the third axle equalizer for your E-Z Flex Suspension system and the kit that you see on the screen there. So if you have that system already installed on your trailer and that third axle equalizer is no longer working for you, as well as it used to, or it has become damaged, this is going to be an exact replacement from Dexter Axle so that you can get that working again. Just like the original it is going to have that rubber core to isolate and absorb road vibration and impacts help to minimize chucking or that back and forth movement. It's got the same sturdy steel construction to help increase durability and that bronze finish to help resist corrosion. So because this is from the same manufacturer, you can trust, it's gonna work with your system you're not gonna have to worry about compatibility issues or anything like that.

But just to give you a little bit more reassurance, took a few measurements here. So our overall height I measured right here at our rubber core that seems the tallest part to me or the widest part. So the thickness there is right about two and a half inches. Our length, which I measured from the center of one hole here to the center of our mountain hole, and I got right at nine inches, center to center. Then our overall height, looking at right about six and a half inches.

Our bolt hole diameters there are your 9/16 inch. So, like I said, if you are needing to replace that third axle equalizer on either side of this is gonna be the option that you need direct from Dexter Axle so that you can trust that it's gonna work well for your system to get you up and running again so that your trailer is gonna be a lot smoother for you. That's going to complete our look for today, again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

One heavy chunk of metal. Might have packaged it a little better but came in good shape. The Zirk fittings could have been damaged but were not.

I installed these on my striping trailer and frequently travel to other states. The trailer rides sooooo much better. The grease zerts and brass bushings keep it from being squeaky. I will put this on any new trailer that I buy.

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Seems to be working well at taking away the big jolts from the road and giving a much smoother ride to my trailer. Way more substantial than the stock system that came on my trailer. It was about a 6 hour job for me to do myself, from begining to end. That's including getting all my tools ready, cribbing the frame, clean up, etc.
If you have a stock equalizer suspension I highly recommend this product!

We broke down on a Saturday near Cincinnati and couldn't find any parts, so I called etrailer and luckily they had a wet bolt kit in stock. They shipped it next day, which means business day, next day, aka Tuesday " thanks UPS ". I had the kit installed by a mobile mechanic and I was back on the road by 3:30pm.

Much beefier than previous shackles. Quick shipping and prompt arrival. Installation went smooth. Two phone calls to customer service, 2nd asking for proper parts. Not etrailers fault. I needed longer eye bolts after disassembly. Customer service we more than helpful both phone calls. I ended up having to order parts from a different website. Not a really big deal. Great experience as usual.

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Let me begin by saying I believe overall this to be a well made product and I would recommend buying it. I have 3 recommendations if you purchase this or a competing product. #1 Test all the grease fittings to make sure they take grease and were not damaged during shipping. #2 install these with the grease fittings directed inward so as to not have to remove the wheels and tires to grease them. #3 call etrailer before ordering any item to confirm they have the product in the shipping warehouse and not off site and that they can give you a reasonable idea when it will ship. Sadly their shipping times have suffered greatly as of late.
Pros. The product, as a whole, is a well made beast and I believer will last as long as we own our camper. Other than tires this is one of the first things I'm replacing and our camper which is a 2021. When I removed the factory items yesterday the plastic bushings were already showing cracking and wear from only a handful of short distance trips. Sadly this is the junk installed on the vast majority of Rv's. I was unaware of this issue until doing a pre vacation check on our old travel trailer 3 years ago and found my equalizer had oval holes, and the plastic bushings were worn with many being worn completely thru from many miles of use by the previous owners. The hardware that comes with this kit is Mercedes to Yugo in comparison and should last as long as I own this unit.

Cons. Here's where I had an issue. As you can see from the enclose I had a grease fitting that I believe was cracked and broke while applying grease. I also had one grease fitting that would not take grease which I didn't discover until after I installed them. Hence my recommendation to check before install. I even tested by removing and using another grease fitting to test and it still wouldn't take grease. We removed the entire wet bolt and were able to force grease thru the fitting and after install it seemed to work fine. Unfortunately we somehow chipped one of the bronze bushing which I'll have to replace. My real issue came when installing on the other side and the fitting pictured broke. Luckily I was able to find a replacement at a local auto parts store and the broken piece came out fairly easy. I'm not sure if it was stressed during shipping, since all the hardware was packed fairly loose or may have been over torqued during manufacturing. The problem was is that not all the grease fitting are the same size. They took both 8 and 7mm wrenches to remove the 2 I had a problem with. That lack of quality control is the reason for my 3 star review. I planned on carrying a couple extra just in case I had an issue while on the road but since I have multiple sizes that's not worth the headache.
Again, inspect, inspect the product before installing.

I shared pictures - obviously the newly installed Dexter and then the older Lippert with a comparison of the differences between the shackle straps (top one is the new Dexter shackle strap that is much more industrial strength)

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


As a learning curve installing these. I made a tool to install bushings and found an air hammer made it very easy. Broke one trying to pound it with hammer. Plus had to ream out spring eye to make more round so bushing fit better. Other than that, worked well. Another hint is when you grease the pins, jack up trailer. I have a power greaser and could not get a couple to take grease. I lifted trailer and they all worked fine.


Comments
Good, no problems. Only difficulty is in greasing the pins, it is very hard to impossible to grease some of them but if you hack up the trailer by the frame, is piece of cake

These items replaced the same items which I had installed years ago. The originals performed great. I needed to replace them due to returning to Wisconsin in the winter from Arizona. This trip happed in 2019. Due to Covid and not traveling, I didn’t perform maintenance. When I began preparing for our trip to Florida, the grease serts on the spring ends would not take grease. It required me to cut and grind off some suspension parts and replace them. Completely my fault. The first set worked so well I replaced them with the same set.

It seems to help with pot holes or large bumps, when I replaced old hanger bushings they were plastic trailer had 6000 miles on it and bushing were almost wore though. Good product buy hanger kit too.

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


The installation went smoothly with no issues. All the grease zerks are still easily taking grease almost a year later...which is good. Units were installed on a tandem axle car trailer usually hauling a 5500lbs vehicle with a combined weight including the trailer of nearly 8000lbs. I can't say that I can feel a noticeable difference in the ride of the trailer compared to the old worn-out rigid equalizers. Although, I typically tow the car trailer behind a RAM 3500 with a 3000lbs Lance camper in the bed, so there is a lot of other weight on the truck. Only able to give 4 stars at this point...the 5th star has to wait until a few more years of trouble-free use.

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Bought this kit last year for a tandem axle car hauling trailer. The original equalizer and bushings were just wore out from normal use. The wear was creating lots of extra vibration and noise. Thought I would give this a try. I am beyond impressed. The trailer now tows and rides as good as one of my other trailers that has torsion suspension. Vibration from axle misalignment and rattles are gone! I am so impressed I have now purchased another kit for my 5th wheel camper. Have not had the 5th wheel out yet but my expectations are pretty high after the improvement I have experienced with the other trailer. Some would argue that since my camper has shocks this is redundant. My answer to that is, "shocks and springs have different jobs". Very easy to install. Only took 2.5 hours total for both sides.


Comments
Over a year now and about 18k miles. Still impressed! The improvement on my 5th wheel just as impressed as with car trailer.

I’ve had this setup on the trailer for 1 year, works great and was really impressed on the thickness of the metal on the shackles. Nice being able to grease the bolts as well. Good upgrade highly recommend.

It feels much better when towing my trailer and I have a peace of mind that the suspension has been improved from the original. Less porpoising, especially over the local bridges.

So far this system has worked out really well. The HD shackles along with the ability to grease all the moving pieces is way better than the stock items. 9000 miles so far this trip

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Excellent product. I have installed the EZ flex on a previous trailer and that made a huge difference in towing comfort. This trailer had a Moride equalizer installed from the factory. My biggest issue was the lack of wet bolts and real bushings. After removing the Moride equalizer everything seemed very sloppy. The EZ flex seemed to be much better built. The only thing that I didn't like about the EZ flex is that it was red instead of the bronze color that shows in the pictures. Looking forward to see how the trailer pulls with the change.

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


The complete shipment arrived on time as usual for etrailer.com. However, the label was missing the name of my business and the Owner/Proprietor of the mail service I use was not going to accept the packages for lack of a name. The box number was printed the the name section.

The Owner/ Proprietor is this very small town is the ONLY mail service we have here. So, thinks very powerful by reading every label and wielding her monopolistic power upon everyone. I pleaded with her to let me have package, and she finally agreed, if I would chew your butts for missing the name

Here in this town of [town] Montana we have named her the "Mail Nazi"!

I suggest you be conscience of proper mail labeling.

Otherwise, thank you for your consistent service and prompt customer service!

Really nice upgrade. Night and day difference compared to the one ones and The quickness the bouncing does down makes hauling our fifth wheel not only safer but more comfortable

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Very happy with them, and had them on for about year. They are working well, I also bought new leaf springs too, plus I upgraded the new disc & rotors, electric hydraulic pump, breakaway braking system along with them, plus flipping the axels, and new shock kit. The whole job was a little bit of money, but, thinking it was well worth the effort, time, and money. She [ The Hillbilly Hillton ], a customer cargo trailer, is a real pleasure to tow around and was really made to go offroad and explore the back country. She rides like butter! : ) All parts came from etrailer, they had everything I need

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


These things look beefy as hell compared to online photos. These are WAY better then factory stock. I have them On my Big Tex dump trailer 90sr after snapping my stock ones. I haul small tractors and mowers, deliver stone and soil. Very satisfied with my upgrade.




by:

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Product appears to be of high quality and beefier compnentry than factory OEM. For an adventurous person(s) with reasonable DIY skills and tools, changing out the original suspension with this kit is quite doable. I'm 75 and my wife 69 and we changed the suspension on our 2021 Starcraft 212FB in our driveway. Trailer rides smoother with less "earthquake effect" on the contents, for sure, and I imagine that the smoother ride quality is beneficial to any of the more delicate plumbing connections and fittings. Yes, I would recommend this upgrade to the original suspension.

Haven't installed them yet, but E-trailer/Carol C. was extremely helpful in finding the correct size and capacity equalizer for my trailer. I will continue to use e-trailer going forward thanks to their excellent knowledge and friendly customer service.
