Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Suspension K71-291-00 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Deter bronze bushings for spring eyes or equalizers. This is for a quantity of four. Now these are replacement bushings that'll fit into one spring eye or one equalizer bolt hole of your trailer's suspension system. These will help maintain a well functioning suspension system. And they do ensure proper sizing for suspension bolts. Few size or dimensions on this.

Overall length is going to be right at one and 3/4 inches. The inner diameter is 9/16, in decimal form it would be .57 of an inch. The outer diameter is 11/16, in decimal form it would be .69 of an inch. And this is for a quantity of four bronze bushings. But that should do it for the review on the Dexter bronze bushings for spring eye or equalizers quantity of four..

As advertised...make sure you clean out the eyelets in the springs really well, I used a round file in a drill and cleaned all the rust and burs. Used a large C-clamp to press them in and worked great. Great customer service from e-trailer as always...and will keep doing business with them. 377981


Comments

The trailer has been to PA and back to Maine...been used hauling 10K skiddsteer around, roof shingles, lumber...you name it and the new shackles grease-able style with the new bushings keep the trailer steady and true. Again...great service from etrailer!

The size and weight of the replacement springs are very nearly identical to the originals except for the bushings. I got bronze bushing to replace the cheap plastic ones. Even they have almost too much gap which means to check on them and all other moving parts during and after each trip. 336844



- K71-291-00
by:

Everything I ordered was just as shown on the web site. The shipping was fast and the prices were good. The bronze bushings were a vast improvement over the cheap plastic from the factory. Just make sure to use wet bolts with them 87191

Haven't removed any of them to see how they are performing. 615113



- K71-291-00
by:

I purchased this set in order to replace a new bushing that was deformed by an under-sized eye on the OEM spring. I also bought a set of replacement springs at the same time. All went together as it should have. 608800



- K71-291-00
by:

Got them and they are now installed in some new springs to be installed and also ordered from etrailer. The nice thing about these is that they are a few thousandths larger in OD then the MORRryde spares that I have and fit the looser ends of the new springs better. These fit the 'loose' ends while the MORrydes fit the tight ends of the new springs so all is well 310374

Replaced the worn out plastic bushing on my trailer with these bronze bushings. Installed easy with common tools. 517803


Comments

So far, with the wet bolt combination, everything is functioning properly. No squeaking and easy to maintain.

Much better than the nylon OEM that came from the factory. Easy to install and with the wet bolt kit a sure winner. 308380

- K71-291-00
by:

First time I used these bronze bushings rather than plastic. 5* because they installed easily. Tip: I use a long standard bolt with a same-size bushing/sleeve to knock the old bushing out and install new bushings so they don't get deformed. Also clean and lube the spring eye after removing old bushing for easier install. 724488

The brass bushings were excellent. They were fine. The instructions for the kit were not complete. I had to use a wheel puller to get the greasable bolt properly seated. 642289

Seem well made. Easy to install and correctly sized for both spring eyes and bolts. 641386

Worked great! 637236



- K71-291-00
by:

coupled with the heavy duty shackles, I expect these bronze bushings to last 20K verses the nylon 10K. Just my opinion, and I have confidence in these products to do what they are supposed to do better than nylon bushings and standard shackles. 634726

Yes I did receive my order yesterday and it couldn't have got here any sooner it was great I have yet to use the brass bushings. Thank you 629184

Everything I ordered that was in stock arrived quickly.Only problem was that if anything in your order is not in stock, the entire order sits until that comes in. It may be that it was my fault for not read that somewhere. Anyway if you want something right away ,make that a separate order from things not in stock. 559012

George J; Thanks for expediting these bushings, got them a day earlier than quoted, need drier weather to install them. Broke a spring a couple years back and need to replace the plastic bushings it came with and to match the rest of the bronze bushings in the suspension. 488124


Comments

As far as I know they are great. This the only way to go with this product, replace those NYLON s with something more perminet.

by:

Great replacement for the plastic so called lifetime bushings that don't last.. these with "wet" bolts that can be greased and you'll get much longer service life. I used a 3/8" socked extension to push out the old plastic bushings, then pressed the new bushing in with a press, but a good sized vise or C-clamp should be able to get the job done. 216477

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension

Do you have a question about this Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension?


  • Bushings, Shackle Straps, and Wet Bolts for Tandem Axle Trailer
  • The bronze bushings with 9/16 inner diameter come as a single, # D014-077-00, or in a pack of four, # K71-291-00. The closest shackle strap we have to that length is 3-1/8 inches. I've linked our selection for you. We do carry a heavy-duty strap that's 3-3/4 inches long, part # 018-026-05. We have wet bolts that are 3 inch, # 126B2, but the 3-1/2 inch long bolt that will fit the 9/16 inch bushing is not a wet bolt, # 166079. All of the prices can be seen on the linked product pages.

  • Recommended Bushings and Bolts for Trailer Suspension Upgrade
  • The Bronze Bushings # K71-291-00 will work well with the wet bolts # 34007-187-00 which are 3-5/8 inches long. The usable length is 2-1/4 inches which will work well with the bronze bushings that are 1.74 inches long. As you stated, wet bolts can vary in length and should not be used with the nylon bushings # TRBU11566 as they cause them to break down prematurely. If you are simply wanting a bushing kit that requires no maintenance and will last, I recommend the Never Fail Tandem...

  • Comparing Bronze and Nylon Bushings for Trailer Suspension
  • It really just depends on what you are looking to get out of the bushings. Bronze bushings, like part # K71-291-00, will last longer but are more noisy and it is recommended to use wet bolts like part # 126B2 to keep them lubricated. Nylon bushings, like part # SP05-060, are much quieter and can be used with regular bolts like part # 166081 since they don't need to be lubricated as much. As far as lifespan goes the bronze will last longer but not so much longer that they are much better...

  • Bronze Bushing Recommendation for Leaf Springs # SP-218275
  • The leaf spring part # SP-218275 is a 5,000 lb capacity trailer leaf spring that measures 25-1/4 inches long. The biggest factor with picking out leaf springs is to go with the spring that matches capacity first and then length second as hangers can be moved. The bushing kit then that you mentioned of part # K71-291-00 is the correct fitting bushing as well.

  • Recommended Equalizer and Wet Bolt with Bushings for 7,000 lb Axle with Correct Track
  • The Bronze Bushings - Qty. 4 # K71-291-00 will work well with the wet bolts # 34007-187-00 which are 3-5/8 inches long. The usable length is 2-1/4 inches which will work well with the bronze bushings that are 1.74 inches long. The neverfail bushings cannot be used with wet bolts as it will break down the bushings. The EZ Flex system has brass bushings and comes with the wet bolts. For instance the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle # K71-653-00 will work...

  • Replacement Bronze Bushings for Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension Kit
  • The replacement bronze bushings you can use for the E-Z Flex Triple Axle Suspension Kit # K71-657-00 are the Bronze Bushings # K71-291-00 which are a quantity of four or Bronze Bushing # D014-077-00 which is a quantity of one. I have added links to video reviews of the bushings for you to take a look at as well.

  • Replacement Bronze Bushings with 0.70 Inch Outer Diameter
  • For bronze bushings like what are included in the Dexter Heavy-Duty Suspension Kit # K71-359-00 that you referenced I recommend the Dexter Bronze Bushings # K71-291-00. These feature a 0.69 inch outer diameter, which is the closest to the 0.700 inch measurement that you mentioned that we have available. They have a 0.57 inch inner diameter and a 1.74 inch length. 4 bushings are included. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.

  • Recommended Leaf Springs and Metal Bushings for 2004 KZ Sportsman 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 6,000-lb Trailer Axles - 26" Long # SP-053275 are compatible with any trailers that have that eye to eye measurement and have a 6,000 lb axle. Each spring will have a 3,000 lb capacity. You absolutely can trade out the bushings for the metal bushings. I recommend the Bronze Bushings - Qty. 4 # K71-291-00 or the Never Fail Bushings - 9/16" Inner Diameter, 11/16" Outer Diameter - 1-3/4" - Qty 14 # LC279685.

  • Bronze Bushings for Double-Eye Leaf Spring
  • There are bronze bushings you can use to replace the bushings on the 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 6,000-lb Trailer Axles # SP-053275; they would need to be added separately. What you can use is the Bronze Bushing # D014-077-00 which is a quantity of one or the Bronze Bushings # K71-291-00 if you wanted a quantity of four. These bushings have a 9/16" inner diameter, 11/16" outer diameter and measure 1-3/4" long. I've added links to reviews of both the bushings and leaf spring for you...
