These are are direct replacement for the stock equalizers on my Dexter D44 4400lbs axles. They were very easy to install and have done a great job smoothing out the ride of the trailer. They are a lot heavier duty than the stock equalizer. So far I have been very impressed. If they last for a number of years I will be very happy 674895

Great product easy to install.I have the rubber suspension for the 8000lb axel. Just make sure the spring bolts grease holes are facing the front are rear of the T. T. Before you seat the bolts put grease from the grease gun to make sure the grease will ease flow into the spring bushing and out side of the spring. Have not tried it yet. . 764241

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


After a year and 20,000 miles, this was one of the best upgrades in towing and ride on my 42' fifth wheel. It took out a lot of the small bumps that would open cabinet's and knock things over in the shelves. Another great advantage is the bronze bushings are greasable and do not squeak like the OEM plastic, the OEM bushings had around 3000 miles and we're already worn through, the bronze if kept greased will probably last the life of the trailer. 438995

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I installed this Dexter E-Z Flex om my Keystone Cougar in about 5.5 hours in my driveway. I also installed the complete wet-bolt kit at the same time. I have taken many trips since installing this, including a trip from Cali to Yellowstone and back, and I have to say the quality of the ride has improves so much that it is near perfect! The rough roads and pothole are handled so much easier and I have less fatigue at the end of each days drive. Getting under the rig to lube these has been very easy and keeps things smooth and quiet. Do this upgrade! You won't be disappointed! 323299

About as simple a swap as you could expect. Tear off all your old stuff, throw all the new stuff on and voila! A couple of floor jacks, and 2 hrs max. Great time to swap out your junk Chinese wheel bearings too. No major ride change or anything, but at least I know the links aren't going to fail like the OEM ones did. See pic. 285667

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


The installation is pretty straight forward, however with the trailer weigh and spring strengths it was quiet a lot of work. I have air tools and jacks to work with and it took about six hours. Didn't realize how bad my bushing were worn until it was apart. Camper is a 2013 with about 15000 miles and the plastic bushing were considerably worn. With E-Z flex installed, all the creaking noise is gone, tows a lot smother, still some chucking, but well worth the money and time. Great product and great service from etrailer. Thanks 267849

I noticed a difference the first trip out with the kit installed. I was impressed with the ride quality. The install was start forward nothing hard about it. This is a product I would recommend to a friend or install again on another trailer. 688442

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I installed the E-Z Flex Dexter K71-652-00 suspension system which was an easy afternoon task. Everything went together without any problems and was quite simple. We traveled on our first short trip of 650 miles with the new system and was great. The 30' KZ travel trailer road smoother and seem to handle better. I really recommend this system up-grade to all stock suspension systems with plastic bushings and steel equalizer. 355038

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I like the equalizers, no more squeeking, coupled with the heavier leaf springs i have a better ride. Only one of the four doors/drawers pops open during travel now. I did have problems installing them, the axle was difficult to get back in place on one side, if I had jacked up the whole trailer (all four wheels off the ground) it would have been a lot easier, live and learn. Oh, had my 18 year old granddaughter and two of her girlfriends do almost all of the work as I had minor surgery on my shoulder a week before we did the change out, they wanted to do a 5 day campout with the trailer so the broken leaf spring had to be replaced. Very satisfied with them, the girls work and the equalizers. 654648

No change, the equalizers and springs are working well. I am happy I made the change.

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Bought this kit last year for a tandem axle car hauling trailer. The original equalizer and bushings were just wore out from normal use. The wear was creating lots of extra vibration and noise. Thought I would give this a try. I am beyond impressed. The trailer now tows and rides as good as one of my other trailers that has torsion suspension. Vibration from axle misalignment and rattles are gone! I am so impressed I have now purchased another kit for my 5th wheel camper. Have not had the 5th wheel out yet but my expectations are pretty high after the improvement I have experienced with the other trailer. Some would argue that since my camper has shocks this is redundant. My answer to that is, "shocks and springs have different jobs". Very easy to install. Only took 2.5 hours total for both sides. 600585

Over a year now and about 18k miles. Still impressed! The improvement on my 5th wheel just as impressed as with car trailer.

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


My 10 year old Toy Hauler was in need of some TLC. I dry camp 98% of the time. Traveling down very dusty and bumpy roads. The factory equalizers had plastic bushings that had failed. The Dexter Ez-Flex came with new bronze bushings and all of the hard-ware. It took me and a friend approximately 5 hours to install these. I have only pulled the trailer once since the install, but I could notice a difference right away. I like the fact that there are bronze bushing and I am able to grease them myself. I highly recommend this product if you do a lot of dry camping and going down rough dirt roads. I should not have any other problem with my load equalizers. The staff at etrailer was very helpful Rick S. and Michelle S. keep me informed each step along the way. This is the second big purchase I have made with etrailer and I highly recommend them and will use them again. Thank You 375118

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


This equalizer system did make a significant difference in the ride of my travel trailer, but only after I replaced the center spring hanger bracket on the trailer, where the equalizer mounts, with a bracket that was about two inches longer, in order to maintain the same clearances for the springs that our original equalizer provided. This assembly is shorter than the stock equalizer in terms of the vertical distance from the center mounting hole to the attachment points for the spring shackles, and when I first installed it, the spring eyes were only about 1" from the trailer frame, causing the springs to bottom out against the frame while driving. Changing the center mounting brackets welded to the frame solved this problem and significantly improved the trailer ride. 711125

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I've not actually towed on this product yet as I only just installed it. The product is solid and easy to fit with clear instructions that make installation easy. I chose to replace the leaf springs at the same time. Like others have mentioned in reviews, the packing isn't just terrible, it is completely absent. The heavy contents are just tossed in a box and while that is bad enough, it presents a significant risk to the grease fittings on the EZ-Flex unit. Dexter (not etrailer) need to get that sorted out. I'd have given 5* if it wasn't for that issue. 565951

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


After installing my new E-Z Flex Suspension kit a year ago I have travelled close to 25k with out any problems and it held up even after breaking a leaf spring and then later the leaf spring bracket that is welded to the frame. I am super impressed with this product and wonder why Heartland does not use it when they build there trailers. 714107

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Great product. As an industrial designer (retired), ...kept the machine shop, I dread the quality of pretty much everything I order. Sure, one bronze bushing needed to be pressed in further and a nut was missing due to UPS's classic handling, but the end product can only be described as 'OVERKILL'. Thanks for saving one very poorly designed Lamar dump load trailer ...requiring an axle flip to have any suspension travel at all. 561493

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


We replaced the leaf springs and the equalizers at the same time with products from etrailer.com. The Dexter equalizers were much better than the stock product and easy to install. The leaf springs were exactly the same as those we could purchase locally and at a significantly reduced price. Well done etrailer. 501835

Review from a similar E-Z Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


The EZ Flex equalizers did everything as expected. The shipping for this kit was subpar. The hardware was not packaged and all the parts beat each other during the shipping process. Also, there was 2 packets of copper colored grease that got punctured during shipping (due to zero packing/bubble wrap) and that messed up the majority of the instructions. I contacted 3 different people with Etraier (Adam, George and Angela) and neither were apologetic to how I received my package. I did however receive a canned response of "without honest feedback from valued customers like you we would not know where we need to make improvements" and I was expecting just a little more from Etrailer. The level of customer service prior to buying is top notch. I will give them that. 436306

I just opened the box and was disappointed to see that everything was just thrown in the box. Just looking at it it looks like some of the threads are damaged from the way everything is packaged. It will be a while before I will be installing this product. I want to say that the service from etrailers was outstanding!! From fast shipping and great price I couldn't be happier with etrailer. 475693

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension

  • Replacement EZ Flex Trailer Suspension Equalizer with 7-3/4 Inch Length
    The Dexter 13-143 E-Z Flex equalizer had a 7-3/4 inch bolt hole to bolt hole dimension, you'd need the equivalent replacement with the same dimensions, part # K71-655-00 to retain your present suspension geometry. As you can see in the product reviews, the Dextere E-Z Flex is very highly rated by our customers.
    view full answer...
  • Can 5-3/4 Inch or Similar Size Equalizer Replace 7-3/4 Inch Equalizer
    It's not uncommon for a trailer with a 29-1/2 inch axle spacing to use either 7-3/4 inch or 5-3/4 ich (or similar) equalizers but the shorter ones are more commonly used with the 25-1/4 inch leaf springs, like the ones you have, designed for up to 6,000 axles. So, either the Lippert # LC279687 or Dexter # 013-143-03 equalizer upgrades could potentially work for you. Keep in mind that the previous trailer owner could have been using shorter shackle straps to make up for the longer equalizers....

  • Will E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 Fit Trailer with Similar Equalizer Dimensions
    If the equalizer dimensions are pretty close to the dimensions of the E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 that you referenced and less than 8,000 lbs axle capacity then the equalizer will fit and work well. It would be a direct replacement.

  • Suspension Upgrade Kit Recommendation for Trailer with Tandem 7k Axles
    We have tandem axle suspension kit upgrade kits that will work really well, but the total axle capacity for the EZ-Flex you mentioned is 8,000. You'd need something instead like the Lippert Center Point # LC1565391 which is designed for individual axle capacities up to 8,000 lbs. This is an air ride suspension upgrade kit that will make a huge difference in ride quality improvement. I attached a review video link for this kit for more info on it as well.

  • Dexter E-Z Flex 8,000 Lb Equalizers Without The Kit Components
    Yes, you can purchase the equalizers by themselves from the kit part # K71-653-00. The E-Z Flex 8,000 lb Equalizers alone without the kit components is part # K71-655-00 for a quantity of 2. The equalizers measure 2-7/8" tall by 7-3/4" Long from center hole to center hole. The bolt hole diameter is 9/16".

  • Can the E-Z Flex # K71-655-00 be Used for Axle with 31" Spacing Instead of 35" Spacing
    Since the eye-to-eye measurement of your current equalizer is 7-3/4" just like the E-Z Flex # K71-655-00, and the height difference is only 1/4" you can use this kit. The 35" spacing is the standard spacing that Dexter Axle usually has for trailers that use this size equalizer. I spoke with my contact at Dexter Axle who said that as long as the equalizer matches like we mentioned then this is perfectly fine.

  • Boat Trailer Equalizer Flips with Little to No Weight on the Trailer
    What you are experiencing is common on tandem axle trailers when little or no weight is on them. The weight compresses the suspension and would not allow this to happen, or at least not as easily. If you were to use the E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 they would still pivot like stock equalizers though maybe not to the same degree or frequency. They can be used on boat trailers. It appears that you might actually benefit more from slightly longer leaf springs. When everything is set...

  • EZ Flex Equalizer Replacement Recommendation to Replace Ones that Measure 7-3/4 inches Long
    Since you said your current EZ Flex Equalizers are 7-3/4 inches from bolt hole center to bolt hole center the correct replacements you'd need is the part # K71-655-00.

  • Recommended Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer for 2004 NUWA Hitchhiker II LS to Widen Axle Hanger Spacing
    I recommend using the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle - 5-5/8" Equalizers # K71-652-00 which is compatible with axle spacing of 33 inches on center. It is okay to move your outside hangers to give you more space but there are standard spaces that work well for tandem axle trailers that you will want to stick to. If you want 35 inch axle spacing, then you will move the hangers and use kit # K71-653-00 which has wider equalizers to make up for the larger spacing....

  • Cushioned Equalizers to Replace EQE1 on 2020 Forest River Sabre
    Your drawing picture with the dimensions of your equalizer did not make it through but since I can identify the equalizer you have as the part # TREQE1 from the picture that did make it through the best cushioned equalizer we offer that will be a perfect match to what you have now is the part # K71-655-00 which is the EZ Flex system from Dexter. We do have a similar sized Equa Flex part # LC279688 which would work too if this is the system you wanted to stick with.
