Fit up perfectly. Split the old nuts using a right angle grinder with a cutting wheel. Heated the spring enough to soften the plastic bushing and allow the bolt to be pounded out with a hammer. I used an 11/16 drill bit to remove rust and debris from spring end and used a c-clamp to press in the new bronze bushing. Everything else went together like the instructions said. Attached a before and after photo. 673027

I think that was the best thing I could've done by changing out the suspension on my trailer .My trailer is a whole lot quieter to pull now.No problem yet. Good product . 900309

Perfect fit. Much better than what was originally on there. The photos show an old linkage compared to a new one. 866311

I like the heavy duty shackle links to replace the original shackles the original ones are too lite duty for 8000 lb axles 859129



- K71-449-00
by:

These parts are GREAT. The links are super heavy and the ability to grease them is wonderful. The bronze bushings are very superior to the plastic ones. A few folks complained about having to remove the tires to access the grease fittings. I just installed mine to the inside so all I have to do is crawl under the trailer (or get a kid to do it) and it only takes a few minutes. 858701

Ran these over ice and snow on I-40 from Tucumcari to Albuquerque and didn't loose anything inside. If your shackles are rusted and can't be lubed this is the fix for you. Replaced these on a 2003 Mobile Suites fifth wheel. 727102



- K71-449-00
by:

Easy to work with, good fit and pleased with quality. Only downside, and it is minor, is that the straight zerks need to be replaced with 90's. The tires do not permit access to straight zerks. Parts are holding up well. 707216

Recently broke shackle straps 600 miles from home. Lost two days finding and installing new parts. This kit is so much more robust than the stock parts it's ridiculous. Installing new parts will be easy and will make for peace of mind on the road. 706483

etrailer- I cant say thank you enough Finally, someone sells a product that is done right. Within 9 months of purchasing a brand new twin 5200 lb tandem axle trailer, i lost an axle due to light flimsy spring shackles that wore through ( no way to grease them either) .I have been towing tandem trailers for the past 30 years, always having undercarriage issues (hangers and equalizers by other companies wearing through one being cheaper and thinner than the next. These are truly Heavy Duty... I can now travel down the road feeling confident that my leaf springs and axles are strong, sturdy and over engineered. etrailer was the only one i found that sold truly Heavy Duty Hardware that is truly over engineered and realistically, under priced... Thanks again etrailer 703385
