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. 694803


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.

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. 688498


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

The shackles are twice as thick as the factory ones we replaced. With the Zerk fittings will should be much stronger and more secure. 680505

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!

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

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

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

The only issue I had, which was to be expected, was when you install the brass/bronze ? bushing insert/sleeve, even using a snap on bushing installer tool, it mushrooms and deforms a bit. No biggie, run a file or drill bit thru and teat fit the bolts. Pre lube/slather in marine grease and good to go, as the grease fittings may be hard to reach and you find yourself not lubing it as often as you shoud. Eliminated all popping when turning in a parking lot from the trailer. I'm sure these will eventually wear and develope some slop but the other alternative of paper thin nylon bushings doesnt work with me. Price was right.And was best price after my research. 718435

The spring hanger bolt should be drilled and fitted with a zerk grease fitting like the others. Makes it more accessible. 883818

The product that I purchased and installed with moderate difficulty was as I hoped it would be. More substantial than original equipment. The only concern I have is that after installation the trailer sets about an inch lower on the tires. I may have to add riser blocks over the springs. 853233

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. 837205
