Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Suspension - Leaf Spring Suspension - K71-359-00 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Dexter heavy duty suspension kit for tandem axle trailers. This works with 1 3/4" wide double eyes springs. The part number is K71-359-00. Now this suspension kit includes equalizers and the hardware for attaching four leaf springs to the hangers of your trailer's frame. Now keep in mind that those hangers are not included. But you can find a lot of options here at etrailer.com.

This works with 33" axle spacing. It has built in grease inaudible 00:00:30 for easy lubrication and the heavy duty shackle straps ensure great strength. This suspension kit, again, it does work with 1 3/4" double wide double eyes springs and the equalizer is going to work to transfer the load and impacts from one axle to the other by permitting that movement between the axles. The springs are going to attach the ends of the equalizer with the included hardware. The wet bolt secure equalizers and the spring to the hangers of your trailers and the grease inaudible 00:01:04, again, allow for fast and easy lubrication to keep moving parts functioning at their best.If you take a look here, you can see that hole in the bolt.

That's gonna be where the grease comes out, lubricating that bolt, making it move nice and easily. Now the heavy duty shackle link assemblies with bolts secure this frame to the equalizer. They have 1/2" thick links and they're thicker than your standard straps. So they're gonna have greater durability. The bushings fit into the eye springs to help maintain a well functioning system and ensure proper sizing for suspension bolts.

Bronze construction also resists corrosion. So that's one less thing to worry about there. This kit includes two equalizers, 14 flange nuts, one for each bolt, two shoulder bolts, the silver one here that goes through the top of the equalizer and then four shoulder bolts that are just separate on their own that are going to go through the end of the leaf springs. It has eight 9/16" by 1 3/4" bushings, as you see here. It has four shackle links and four shackle link assemblies, which are these here.As far as the specs on this, this is going to work, again, with tandem axle trailers that have that 1 3/4" double eyes springs.

The axle needs to be 33" and the equalizer dimensions are going to be 2" tall. That's 5 3/4" long from center to center. So if you take a look here, if we measure from the center of this equalizer to the center of the other, that's going to give you that 5 3/4" measurement. The shackle strap length is going to be 2 1/4". So again, going from center on center, that gives you 2 1/4. Dexter does offer a five year limited warranty with this kit and that's gonna do it for our look at the Dexter heavy duty suspension kit for tandem axle trailers, part number K71-359-00.

Shackle kit fit well and seems very heavy duty. Packaging was not good. All the parts were loose inside a cardboard box that was poorly taped closed. Many of the nuts had fallen out of the box. This slowed the repair for my customer and myself. 638490

After discovering that I needed to replace the deformed leaf springs on our 2013 tandem axle 24' travel trailer due to a frightful traffic incident in June, I decided to upgrade to a "wet bolt" suspension system since it would entail very little extra work during the repair effort. I settled on this kit due to the fact that there aren't any non-metallic components to degrade and we don't travel thousands of miles every year. I've already completed the installation, and was really impressed with the robustness and precision fit of every component. The grease channels were cleanly drilled in each bolt, and all of the threaded grease fittings worked perfectly. I have no doubt that the trailer will be more stable and quieter during our future travels. 581388

Although I have not installed the trailer suspension part yet, they look stout and well made! I am looking forward to pulling my 1985 Hudson with the new upgrades! I really like the emails that's I receive periodically from etrailer too, informative and timely! I suggest the you subscribe. And lastly, I ordered the product on Tuesday and had it in hand Friday! Texas to Pennsylvania. 549637

Very happy with the quality of the repair kit. The hangers and link system was substantial and complete with grease zerks. I also purchased all four leaf springs and U bolt kit. I was pleased to see all of the parts supplied were of good quality and fit properly. 482358

High quality product, a definite upgrade from oem shackles & mounts. I replaced the worn out, squeaky, light duty original equipment with this heavy duty system and couldn't be any happier with it. 656201

Fit perfect for my dexter 3500 axles. No more squeaking or clunking!!! 655323



- K71-359-00
by:

K71 359 00 Wet bolt heavy duty suspension kit. The kit looked good so I installed the first side. When I tried to grease it one of the bolts won't take grease, after changing the zerk it still wouldn't so I took it apart to find the bolt had not been drilled deep enough so the grease was dead ending in the bolt. So if you buy this kit, pump grease thru all of the bolts before you install 654649



- K71-359-00
by:

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 651475

Great kit to replace all worn parts in suspension. Was missing one equalizer though. I called and they had one here in a couple of days. 612754



- K71-359-00
by:

The product is pretty nice goes together rather easy but I stripped out 2 nuts trying to tighten them up. I had to beat the knurled Bolton in because the nuts were not strong enough to suck the knurl's into the Frame. Wasn't too happy with that. But after all that I'm still pretty satisfied with the product. 611626

- K71-359-00
by:

These parts are way better then what came on my camper. More then double the thickness, the holes won’t oblong and break off like mine did. Plus all the bushing are greasable so they will last longer. 583772

Very complete kit. Much more heavy duty compared to factory original. 579961

Products arrived quickly with nothing missing from the order. I would definitely do business with this company again. 579446



- K71-359-00
by:

Heavy duty. Twice better than mickey mouse crap at tractor supply with plastic bushings devoid of grease fittings. Their crap would bend. 578985



- K71-359-00
by:

I purchased this kit because, I had purchased the same kit about ten years ago to replace the worn-out pins and plastic bushings in the RV I owned at the time. The kit is great. It comes with brass bushings and greasable pins. With proper maintainence, the new parts should last the life of the RV I just put them on. 578901



- K71-359-00
by:

The suspension kit was very well made and logical to put together. One part was defective, the backing plate of one of the shackles. I contacted etrailer and they were very helpful in getting me the replacement parts so I could complete the job. To access the grease fittings and prevent flat tires from ripping off the grease fittings, I recommend putting the parts together so that the grease fittings are facing the inside of the trailer. This way you don't have to take off the tires to grease the suspension. 577574

my boat trailer sees salt water all the time and things were rusted and worn out. had to take the cutting tourch to get some of the bolts out. installing this system was a dream, it was all right their and love the grease fittings to minimize the wear. i would do this again. 565381



- K71-359-00
by:

Excellent service, and shipping was right on time (paid extra to expedite order-reasonable pricing). We occasionally repair trailers for some of our accounts, and usually have problems getting the correct parts with our local supplier, but not this time. The online catalog makes it easy to get it right. First time buyer, but won't be our last! Thanks!! 555415



- K71-359-00
by:

The side straps are massive. With the ability to grease the pins the bushings should last a long time. 521489



- K71-359-00
by:

Fit well, appears to be made well. Much thicker shackles than stock, which were worn after 3 years of light use. With the wet bolts, these should last many years. Installed in a couple hours and hit the road, one 400 mile round trip, so far all is good. No more squeaking going thru the campgrounds. 508909
