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

After a year these are still working great. They have done a lot to smooth out the trailers ride on the terrible roads.

I ordered the K71-655-00 which is for a trailer with 35” axle spread after a local trailer repair business up sold me the EZ Flex system, but put on parts for a 33” axle spread. Right at two years it started to rip the leaf spring mounts in half from the frame. After much research, I discovered their error and so far with the correct piece in place everything is happy again.

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. .

These things look beefy as hell compared to online photos. These are WAY better then factory stock. I have them On my Big Tex dump trailer 90sr after snapping my stock ones. I haul small tractors and mowers, deliver stone and soil. Very satisfied with my upgrade.

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


I replaced my leaf springs, drums, brakes and added the Dexter E-Z Suspension kit to my Keystone Cougar Fifth Wheel trailer last year. This was my first time working with etrailer and I can’t say enough about how well it all went from the ordering to the install. Tammie P did a amazing job with knowing what parts would work best on my trailer. Tammie also gave me updates on my deliveries that I appreciated. I had a trip planned short after I received my parts. So having someone at their end checking on arrival dates helped. In the future I will definitely use etrailer for all my trailer needs. Thanks again for all the help! Great Team....

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


After one year and about 7000 miles of towing, these have held up very well and provide a very smooth towing experience. The robust shackles are twice as thick as my stock shackles and the wet bolts make greasing easy to reduce wear. One small issue: one of our leaf spring eyes was a little out of round, squeezing the brass bushing a bit as we inserted it, making that particular wet bolt very hard to grease. Aside from that, easy install. The rubber cushions on the equalizer still look great. Very happy with them.

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.


Comments
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


Great product. Not an easy installation but well worth the effort. Tuffest part is getting the old bolts out and the new bushings and bolts pressed back in. I found I could not effectively pound them out or in as directions suggests. I made a simple tool using a large C clamp and two sockets to press the old ones out and the new ones in. Picture enclosed

A great improvement. I certainly recommend this upgrade.

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


My trailer was due for some maintenance cuz everytime I was returned when the axles twist there's a lot of popping crack on going on this is when you know you need to change out the bushings and shackles. But with these pins you can keep the pins greased. I have 6540 lbs inside trailer all the time. So now the trailer rides a little. Plus the it quiet things up when I now turn.

The ride is so much smoother

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


Very happy with them, and had them on for about year. They are working well, I also bought new leaf springs too, plus I upgraded the new disc & rotors, electric hydraulic pump, breakaway braking system along with them, plus flipping the axels, and new shock kit. The whole job was a little bit of money, but, thinking it was well worth the effort, time, and money. She [ The Hillbilly Hillton ], a customer cargo trailer, is a real pleasure to tow around and was really made to go offroad and explore the back country. She rides like butter! : ) All parts came from etrailer, they had everything I need

  • Choosing the Right Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension for Replacing Standard Equalizers
    You shouldn't loose any wheel clearance with the Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension Kit. First you will want to see which of the Equalizers you need. There is a 6,000lb Equalizers # K71-654-00 (5-5/8") and 8,000lb Equalizers # K71-655-00 (7-3/4"). The 6,000lb is for hubs spread 33" on center and 8,000lb for hubs 35" on center. If you choose either the Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension 6,000lb Kit # K71-652-00 or 8,000lb Kit # K71-653-00 they will include 2-1/4" shackle straps. If your current shackle...

  • 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.

  • 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 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....

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • Recommended Dexter Suspension Kit for 7,000 Pound Tandem Axles on Toy Hauler
    For the 7,000 pound axles on your Cyclone Toy Hauler I really like the Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension Kit # K71-653-00. If you currently have standard equalizers on your suspension you will feel the difference immediately with the E-Z Flex units because of the rubber core that will greatly reduce chucking as well as absorb road shock during travel. The wet bolts also have built-in grease zerks that allows for fast and easy lubrication when needed. These equal-i-zers have a distance of 7-1/4...

  • 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.

  • Will Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers Work On Tandem Lippert Axles
    Dexter components like the Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 you were looking at will work just fine on your Lippert axle, but you will want to make sure that the new equalizer has the same horizontal bolt hole distance as your current equalizers to keep your suspension geometry the same. The # K71-655-00 is measures 7-3/4" from the center of the horizontal mounting holes, so if that matches your current equalizers this would be a great option. Regarding the replacement shackle...

  • EZ Flex Equalizer Replacement Recommendation to Replace Ones that Measure 7-3/4 inches Long

  • 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.

  • 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 up...

  • Availability of 7-3/4 inch Equalizer Kit with 3-1/8 inch Long Shackles
    The lengths of the shackles that come with the equalizer kit part # K71-449-00 that you referenced are 2-7/8 inches measured from hole center to hole center. If yours are currently 3-1/8 inches this change would slightly lower the height of the trailer but it would still work. To match the shackle lengths and also be the thicker style you'd need the kit # MR76ZR with the # K71-655-00 which is cushioned. Or for just a standard equalizer and shackle kit you'd want the # e99ZR.

    I can definitely recommend a suspension setup for the tandem axle trailer you are building with two of the Dexter # 7359765-EB axles, but it is not going to be all Dexter parts due to what parts are available and will work with what you are building. The E-Z Flex Equalizers - Double-Eye Springs - Tandem Axle # K71-655-00 you mentioned wanting to use can be used on axles up to 8000lbs, but may cause a rougher ride as they will be overrated for your 3500lb axles.

Since this does not include the shackles you will also need the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit # MR76ZR which has new 3-1/8" long heavy duty shackles, new wet bolts, and new nuts/bushings.
