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.

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. .

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....

This is an awesome upgrade for any dual axel trailer. Very heavy duty compared to the stock parts. Much smoother ride. All of the wear points can be greased. etrailer was prompt in shipping this item and it arrived on time.

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


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


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

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


One of the shackle assemblies had bad threading. etrailer was able to get an replacement sent directly from Dexter for free. Just installed and went for a tow. Very nice difference. Much improved ride. Install is a little challenging if you are an average Joe. Make sure you buy the right tools. 6+ Ton jack stands and air/hydraulic bottle jack from Harbor Freight, along with a decent impact and torque wrench and you can do this in a day.

Still working great. I wish this was standard on all trailers.

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


etrailer support staff gets 5 stars. However... The kit I received was incomplete. Bushings were missing, two shackle links and a shackle link assembly were missing. Additionally, one of the shackle link assemblies would not accept its' mating link - the bolt shafts were spread apart. one of the equalizer assemblies did not have that gold anodize coating, another had incomplete anodize coating. see pic. etrailer staff shipped me the bushings and the shackle link assemblies to complete my project. As for the finish, POR 15 gloss black is a lovely color. The issue here is with Dexter, not etrailer

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


I installed the Dexter E-Z Flex on my 2 axle Stealth enclosed 20ft motorcycle trailer, and man has it made a difference in the ride, inside the trailer and in my F350 as well, nothing bounces around or moves in the trailer loaded or empty, and you know it is a great soft ride when you hit the rough bridges or potholes that you cannot miss due to traffic, and there is No feedback thru the hitch, no kickback, nothing.. If you want your load to ride better, your drive to be smoother while towing this is the product to have on your trailer of any size or weight. This should be the only leaf spring stabilizer that any factory building multiple axle trailers should install..


Comments
The Dexter E-Z Flex is great for the ride in my Motorcycle Trailer, i liked it so much i bought another set for my 22ft Pontoon trailer to smooth out the ride on it as well with wonderful results. A product worth every penny and a great addition to any trailer hauling anything.

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


All together this is a great upgrade and the components themselves fit well and as described. Only 3 stars on the review though and here's why. First, the items were very poorly packaged and several of the linkage bolts had protruded through the packaging and were damaged. About an extra hour and a few specialty tools were required to file and re-tap the threads, luckily I have easy access to the tools. Second, the kit contained too many center equalizer mount bolts and too few outer wet bolts. I was again lucky that this didn't cause a big set back as I had kept extra wet bolts from a past trailer repair and had them on hand. Although having nothing to due with the kit itself but due to the design of the front equalizer, I encountered clearance issues on the middle hangers. The hangers on my 09 WW LE3305 have gussets welded inside of them from the factory which had to be clearance to clear the zerk fittings. I also had to modify the hanger for the front equalizer to allow clearance when mounting the hanger in the upper hole, I believe it may have been okay in the lower hole without modification. Overall I am happy with the product and the excellent service that etrailer provides.

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.

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension

  • 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....

  • 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".

  • 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.

  • 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.
    view full answer...
  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Replacement Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers for 7K Axle on 5th Wheel
    You would indeed need to replace the E-Z Flex equalizer, as Dexter Axle doesn't offer replacement rubber cushions. You are correct regarding the difference between the # K71-655-00 and the # K71-653-00, The # K71-655-00 includes the E-Z flex equalizers and the necessary hardware for mounting the equalizer to the center hanger. The # K71-653-00 is the entire kit that includes the equalizers, the shackle links and all the necessary mounting hardware. As far as replacement leaf springs...

  • 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.

  • 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....

Another option would be a cushioned equalizer like the Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 would be a great choice.

  • Recommended Suspension Components For Custom Tandem Axle Trailer With Dexter 3500lb Axles
    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.
