I bought these to replace an aged set of what looked to be OE hangers during a retrofit to raise the trailer. Three items that drove me to this set: wet bolts, included metal bushings, and the side plates are massive! They look to be well-built, and all hardware is included in the kit. I feel much better about the suspension integrity after adding these, knowing the load placed on them during tight maneuvers.


Comments
Over six thousand miles, and all is well. Ive greased them twice probably overkill and not one creak or pop from the springs. Thanks again, etrailer!

Great product. Some history first. In 2014 I purchased a Keystone Outback and drove from Maine to Alaska and back. Upon returning I had the suspension (original equipment) inspected. The shackles were stretched out nearly torn apart. The equalizers were distorted and most of the nylon bushings were non existent. A catastrophic failure was only a few miles down the road. I had all parts replaced with OEM equipment and four years later of casual use experienced similar failures. I replaced (myself) all parts with this heavy duty suspension kit. Took me about 6 hours to complete. We then again drove from Maine to Alaska and back. This time inspection showed absolutely no sign of any damage. The entire suspension was still tight and in like new condition. Certainly worth the investment.


Comments
The past year we have slowed down a bit travel wise but the suspension system is tight and working like new.

The suspension kit with Hardware made it nice to install on my 2007 Weekend Warrior toy hauler. I recommend this when installing new leaf springs as it makes it much nicer then having to fight with all the old bolts.



- K71-359-00

Product seems to be well made. I could not use the bushings on the older spring set I have on my utility trailer. Nice feature to be able to grease these pivot points. The shackles (hangers) are definitely heavy duty and should last a long time. Received the product in a timely manner and am very satisfied with the company and product. Gave a 4 rating because time in use will tell how the product preforms. Would have been nice to be able to select a different design on the equalizer bar for different applications.


Comments
This product is worth the money spent. Just keep it greased and these should last longer than you will.

What? A follow up? Outstanding procedure. First the suspension bolts, bushings w/grease fittings, and yoke went in perfectly, then the four new brake hubs went in without a hitch, and a year later, one trip to the Keys, then to the real NY (Upstate) and back. All is working perfectly Thanks etrailer.com. You provide excellent products and delivery.


Comments
Just fine. Install went well and all is working well

i purchased this wet axle kit because on my previous 5th wheel the leaf spring bolts wore out during a trip. It was a mess! I was able to find a fabrication company that was able to make two new pairs of shackles and bought a couple of #8 bolts at a box store and made it home. Now aware of how much the stock shackles and springs wear, I will NOT have anything else on any of my trailers.



- K71-359-00

Much nicer than the OEM parts. Original OEM nylon bushings where almost completely worn through after 3k miles. Nice to have greaseable joints. The shackle plates in this kit are 2x the thickness of the OEM parts. Trailer tracks right behind the tow vehicle.

I installed them this spring, here are a few pictures. I also installed all new bushings and greasable pins. It was a good thing I replaced these as the center bushing on my old equalizers were broken. The new equilizers are a couple inches taller than the old one, raise my trailer over an inch. This worked well as my new truck is higher than my old one.

This kit was installed on my Ez Loader custom boat trailer that is about 14 years old. The trailer was making a lot of noise mostly noticeable in the campground driving slow and turning sharp. After installing this kit the boat trailer made almost no noise making the same maneuvers. This kit was probably overkill for my boat trailer, but it deserves a 5 star review.


Comments
After 1 year of light use this kit has operated as expected. The creaking noise is not longer an issue. Still think this was overkill for my needs, but for the money does seem like good value for what I got.

I installed this in 1 1/2 hours in my garage by myself. I do have an air compressor and impact gun. Everything fit perfectly.



- K71-359-00
by:

Installed easily. Air tools are handy for this. Trailer is much quieter and being able to lube the bushings is a good idea. Hopefully will be less wear but can't know w/o taking it apart. So far I'm happy with this choice.


Comments
Greased them the other day at the boat launch. Still had grease and looked like they are wearing good.

Really great service. Item was out of stock. I called customer service and was informed that just that morning a shipment had been received and they would be sure to have it shipped yet that day. As promised they did. I've ordered many products from etrailer and have never been dissatisfied with the product or there fast service.

Very nice kit, the brackets are the size they should have been when the trailer was built, the greasable bolts and bushings fit wonderfull! Easy install, even with the rusted bolts it took me 2.5 hrs on remote location, every thing went smooth and fit great! You have a very happy customer and so do I!

Excellent product. I did strip a nut trying to draw one of the pins in instead of pounding it in like the instructions said. Otherwise everything went together without a hitch. Used a 5/8 bolt to remove the nylon bushings. Threaded it into the bushing a little and then pounded them out I used a half inch carriage bolt with nuts and washers to install the bushings instead of pounding them in. Worked pretty slick. Looking forward to many trouble free miles

I waited to install the kit until July and didn’t open the box until then. When I did open the box a few of the shackles were missing. Lucky for me I had installed the same kit three years prior and was able to reuse some of my old parts. I tell everyone that this kit should be installed at the factory since the heavy duty shackles will not fail like cheap ones installed at lippard.

These springs were bought for my son's teardrop build.. They worked fine to mock up the suspension, and held up well throughout the build, however, as it turns out, they seem to be undersized as the trailer ended up weighing more than our SWAG as to the overall trailer weight. We will be replacing them with a higher capacity set.



- K71-359-00
by:

Much beefier shackle design with wet bolts and metal bushings to replace the cheap thin plastic that LCI provides with their shackles and pivot. Very pleased with the outcome.



- K71-359-00
by:

This is a good kit to replace worn bushings, bolts, and equalizers. Mine were worn badly and this will restore it to proper operation. My bushings were seized in and some needed to be cut with a hack saw to allow them to be removed. The curb side is done. Now on to the street side.

etrailer.com offered prompt processing and shipping of my order. If I remember correctly, I received the order in three business days. I don’t know exactly how long it took to install because I replaced brakes and packed bearings while it was apart, but the installation was straight forward. The bolts, bushings, shackles and equalizers on my trailer were worn out so this kit is a HUGE improvement. No more clanking and popping when it’s empty. Hopefully the greaseable bushings will provide many years of service. I would have rated it 5 star, but I would like to see what kind of service life they have first....

I love this kit. The shackles are 2x as thick as the stock units and its made my trailer run much smoother than the old worn out suspension kit.

The shackle set is definitely a superior upgrade to the OEM that was replaced. It was easy to install. Thanks for the quick across the country service. Jim

This suspension kit is built very well and is designed for longevity. Fit and finish is high quality. A great upgrade for any tandem axle trailer with a 33 inch center to center axle spacing. Using this on my 18 foot utility trailer that sees a lot of miles hauling cars , wood or whatever on both pavement and dirt roads. The thick shackles will last considerably longer than the 1/4 inch standard shackles. My kit was missing two of the greasable bolts and lock nuts. Etrailer was friendly and prompt getting the replacement parts to me. Love using etrailer! My go to for all my trailer needs!
