After receiving my shipment yesterday, I was concerned that parts may have been missing due to the shape of the shipping box and the lack of packing material.

During the installation of the shackles, the third shackle nuts/bolts stripped out when tightened by hand. The shackle had to be cut off since the nuts could not be properly tightened. I have emailed etrailer with this issue and hopefully we can resolve the issue quickly.

Yikes, that does not look good at all. Let's get you over to customer service and get this fixed.



by:

Everything I have ordered from etrailer has been great quality. The Heavy duty Suspension kit that I ordered was a great investment. Much stronger than the original parts!



by:

Well packaged, good online video instructions. Very sturdy and solid construction. Our travel trailer original equipment components were worn through the plastic bushings and had badly worn shackles after only 17000 logged miles.. Thanks for making this upgrade available. Installation went smoothly. Took about 4 hrs total including set up time.



by:

The kit was great. Very heavy duty and installation was straightforward and quite easy. The reason for the 4 star rating was the grease zeros. I had to remove all of them from the bolt heads and replace them with new ones because they were quite literally junk and would not take grease because the heads were to small. I have been a long time Dexter fan and I sincerely hope this is not a sign of things to come.



by:

Fit my trailer perfect. Make sure you measure correctly when ordering as there are 2 different kits. Every thing was correct and I cant believe how fast it got here with free shipping. The shackles are twice the thickness of my original shackles. Again great service and great product



by:

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.

Working great



by:

Although the product is a good one, the packaging was bad. The box was damaged and three of the parts were damaged. I was lucky to have easy outs and spare grease fittings to replace the grease fittings that were broken. Had all of the materials inside the box been stuffed with "peanuts" or bubble wraps, they wouldn't have been damaged ...at least I think so.

It is a shame that the suspension kit arrived this way. Packaging these parts can be a challenge and I know our shippers do their best. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.



by:

Great service. The part was correct and received like promised



by:

Suspension was very easy to install and works great!! The grease fittings will make this last much longer than the original suspension. Love it.



by:

Beautiful work with greaseable joints!



by:

The package is missing shackle links. Needing to use this trailer asap and can’t .



by:

Was a good fit but did not install until this spring. No worries do I have after replacing the system.

Oh no, thats not good! Lets get you to our customer service department and see what they can do for you.



by:

Went together easily. A little more difficult than the video but overall very well. All the parts were in the box and of high quality. Very pleased with the kit.



by:

These were an exact fit and worked perfectly. Good quality along with grease zerks on every point are a big plus. I recommend this kit to friends.



by:

smooth ordering and delivery



by:

These heavy duty parts are beefier and much better than the standard. It will take a lot to wear these out.



by:

I have purchased this kit for different trailers and it always works great. This time I had one grease fitting that broke off during shipping. Simply replaced it and moved on. I have this kit on two car haulers and wouldn’t hesitate to put it on a third.



by:

Broken box parts missing. Working with Customer Service



by:

Dexter! This is a fantastic and easy to install upgrade for your trailer suspension. Grease zeros make lubrication super easy and Bronze bushings eliminate the plastic bushings.

The ability to lubricate regularly reduces wear to a minimum saving money in the long run.

I should have updated to this system two decades ago...



by:

Missing parts. Three of the 4 links are missing from the kit. There was also an extra bag open with additional bolts and hardware. Looks like it may have been previously opened and re packed in correctly.

I am sorry that this hanger kit did not show up to your expectations. We do not sell any returned or used items. However, we do have a demonstration team that takes our product and does a temporary installation in order to get videos and pictures of the item in use. It is our policy to make sure that the item is still in good or new condition before it gets put back on the shelf for sale.



by:

Heavy duty upgrade. Well pleased



by:

Far superior to the stamped out originals. Allow for quiet and smooth suspension articulation.



by:

This also is part of the order that I never recieved. We had to go and buy it locally at triple the price to complete our trailer so we could move cattle.



by:

EVERYTHING IN STOCK AND EASY TO ORDER. GREAT WEB SITE.
