Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Third Axle Replacement Equalizer - 013-146-03

Hi there I'm Michael with etrailer.com, today we're gonna take a quick look at this replacement E-Z Flex third axle equalizer. This is going to replace the third axle equalizer for your E-Z Flex Suspension system and the kit that you see on the screen there. So if you have that system already installed on your trailer and that third axle equalizer is no longer working for you, as well as it used to, or it has become damaged, this is going to be an exact replacement from Dexter Axle so that you can get that working again. Just like the original it is going to have that rubber core to isolate and absorb road vibration and impacts help to minimize chucking or that back and forth movement. It's got the same sturdy steel construction to help increase durability and that bronze finish to help resist corrosion. So because this is from the same manufacturer, you can trust, it's gonna work with your system you're not gonna have to worry about compatibility issues or anything like that.

But just to give you a little bit more reassurance, took a few measurements here. So our overall height I measured right here at our rubber core that seems the tallest part to me or the widest part. So the thickness there is right about two and a half inches. Our length, which I measured from the center of one hole here to the center of our mountain hole, and I got right at nine inches, center to center. Then our overall height, looking at right about six and a half inches.

Our bolt hole diameters there are your 9/16 inch. So, like I said, if you are needing to replace that third axle equalizer on either side of this is gonna be the option that you need direct from Dexter Axle so that you can trust that it's gonna work well for your system to get you up and running again so that your trailer is gonna be a lot smoother for you. That's going to complete our look for today, again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

by:

One heavy chunk of metal. Might have packaged it a little better but came in good shape. The Zirk fittings could have been damaged but were not.



by:

We broke down on a Saturday near Cincinnati and couldn't find any parts, so I called etrailer and luckily they had a wet bolt kit in stock. They shipped it next day, which means business day, next day, aka Tuesday " thanks UPS ". I had the kit installed by a mobile mechanic and I was back on the road by 3:30pm.



by:

Really liked the kit as soon as I opened the box. Well made,& much beefier than stock. Went together pretty easy. Probably spent the most time figuring-out where to put the jacks. My bushings were completely worn-out, so I did have a bit of an alignment issue. That was completely on me. Due yourself a favor and don't wait too long like I did.

The results were very noticeable the first trip out. Took almost all of the slap out of the trailer suspension. Installed this kit on a 2003 Sierra 29f Fifth-Wheel toybox trailer. Primary useDirt Bike Mike is Off Road riding in the SoCal desert.



by:

Seems to be working well at taking away the big jolts from the road and giving a much smoother ride to my trailer. Way more substantial than the stock system that came on my trailer. It was about a 6 hour job for me to do myself, from begining to end. That's including getting all my tools ready, cribbing the frame, clean up, etc.
If you have a stock equalizer suspension I highly recommend this product!



by:

I installed the EZ-Flex equalization system on my 2021 Keystone 5th wheel this past weekend, i replaced the RoadArmor system which had all bushings worn out in less than 2 years. The EZ-Flex is built so much more sturdier than the road armor and it has grease zerks built in for easy lubrication for longer lasting system. Very happy with the service i received!



by:

It seems to help with pot holes or large bumps, when I replaced old hanger bushings they were plastic trailer had 6000 miles on it and bushing were almost wore though. Good product buy hanger kit too.



by:

I had these installed on my 2022 Grand Design Imagine 17MKE. I haven't had the trailer that long, but drove it back from TX for about 13 hours, and a little around town here in the Phoenix area. Since having the Dexter E-Z Suspension with wet bolts kit installed, I pulled it home, which was about an hour of driving. The trailer was noticeably smoother in pulling. I noticed less jarring, and it was smoother on my truck as well. I am towing with a Anderson WDH. I do not know about the condition of the OEM equalizer parts that were taken off, but I found this camper in like new condition, and dont expect there was much wear an tear on the original suspension. If anything changes, I will try and update this review.



by:

I had morryde LRE suspension system on my 5th wheel and it failed after several emails that I did not get a response to I ordered these, cut off my old suspension and installed these 2 days later i towed my camper 16 hours south and it worked great it eliminated the "bucking"i was experiencing overall way better system I'm very pleased



by:

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



by:

The shipping was fast and the kit was complete. Installation was simple and fairly easy. Yes it did take a full dayto do the installation, but the end result was worth it. The coach rides smoother with less thumping. There is a noticeably less porpoise action when hitting road bumps. There is less side slip when passing other large vehicles since the suspension is stiffer. Seems to hold the line straighter.



by:

Custom installation on a 21 year old rig. Went Pretty well. I am pleased with the outcome.



by:

I installed these on my striping trailer and frequently travel to other states. The trailer rides sooooo much better. The grease zerts and brass bushings keep it from being squeaky. I will put this on any new trailer that I buy.



by:

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



by:

This eliminated the suspension squeak on my 12 year old 5th wheel. All of the plastic bushings were worn through.



by:

This kit came with everything that you need to install. It was very simple to install and everything actually fit. I would definitely recommend it not to mention how much better it made the boat trailer ride. I did not think it would make that big of a difference, but it definitely does worth every penny.



by:

Amazing Customer Service! Thank you to Trevor for everything. He was able to help me pick out what I needed. With the New Year Weekend I had limited time to upgrade the suspension on my boat. Originally it was supposed to be delivered next week but he made it a point to have the order picked and to my surprise was able to get UPS to pick it up that night at 8:30pm. I had it delivered in 36 hours and now can get everything done and take my time. Thank you! Happy New Years!



by:

the shackle bolt grease zerk fitting are different than the single bolts seem to be a metric thread and the head is to small for grease gun to connect



by:

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.



by:

Let me begin by saying I believe overall this to be a well made product and I would recommend buying it. I have 3 recommendations if you purchase this or a competing product. #1 Test all the grease fittings to make sure they take grease and were not damaged during shipping. #2 install these with the grease fittings directed inward so as to not have to remove the wheels and tires to grease them. #3 call etrailer before ordering any item to confirm they have the product in the shipping warehouse and not off site and that they can give you a reasonable idea when it will ship. Sadly their shipping times have suffered greatly as of late.
Pros. The product, as a whole, is a well made beast and I believer will last as long as we own our camper. Other than tires this is one of the first things I'm replacing and our camper which is a 2021. When I removed the factory items yesterday the plastic bushings were already showing cracking and wear from only a handful of short distance trips. Sadly this is the junk installed on the vast majority of Rv's. I was unaware of this issue until doing a pre vacation check on our old travel trailer 3 years ago and found my equalizer had oval holes, and the plastic bushings were worn with many being worn completely thru from many miles of use by the previous owners. The hardware that comes with this kit is Mercedes to Yugo in comparison and should last as long as I own this unit.

Cons. Here's where I had an issue. As you can see from the enclose I had a grease fitting that I believe was cracked and broke while applying grease. I also had one grease fitting that would not take grease which I didn't discover until after I installed them. Hence my recommendation to check before install. I even tested by removing and using another grease fitting to test and it still wouldn't take grease. We removed the entire wet bolt and were able to force grease thru the fitting and after install it seemed to work fine. Unfortunately we somehow chipped one of the bronze bushing which I'll have to replace. My real issue came when installing on the other side and the fitting pictured broke. Luckily I was able to find a replacement at a local auto parts store and the broken piece came out fairly easy. I'm not sure if it was stressed during shipping, since all the hardware was packed fairly loose or may have been over torqued during manufacturing. The problem was is that not all the grease fitting are the same size. They took both 8 and 7mm wrenches to remove the 2 I had a problem with. That lack of quality control is the reason for my 3 star review. I planned on carrying a couple extra just in case I had an issue while on the road but since I have multiple sizes that's not worth the headache.
Again, inspect, inspect the product before installing.



by:

I am so pleased with the performance of this product! I love improving the things I build and take great pride in quality. I was so relieved to have found etrailer. Installation was a breeze and now my home moves with ease. Thanks etrailer!



by:

Great heavy duty upgrade kit, love the new wet bolts and equalizer!



by:

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.



by:

Outstanding performance parts and delivery time. Only drawback were the installation instructions that looked like they had been photocopied 20 times on the same page. Not a problem as there was enough instruction on line. Defiantly use e trailer again!



by:

Much beefier than previous shackles. Quick shipping and prompt arrival. Installation went smooth. Two phone calls to customer service, 2nd asking for proper parts. Not etrailers fault. I needed longer eye bolts after disassembly. Customer service we more than helpful both phone calls. I ended up having to order parts from a different website. Not a really big deal. Great experience as usual.



by:

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.
