I added a 3rd axle to our 2022 Salem FSX 270 TOY HAULER with K71-360-00
It worked AMAZING !! It fixed all the swaying problems and rides INCREDIBLE!!
Thanks again and I highly recommend etrailer.com!!



by:

Replaced everything on my 2017 trailer, all the parts fit like they should,and delivery was fast.I added a before and after photo and I would recommend everyone to check their trailer for wear.



by:

So much better than the original parts. Heavy duty shackles, brass bushings and it's all greasable! It'll last forever.

FAST AND ACCURATE PARTS

Arthur helped me when I ordered the wrong size shackle. He quickly located the correct size on a Saturday and I received them Monday morning! Fantastic customer service and I will return in future for any other needs for my 5th wheel.



by:

I ordered the Dexter Heavy Duty Suspension kit and the four shackle plates were missing from the kit. The missing plates were immediately shipped by etrailer when I notified them. The kit components are definitely higher quality than the suspension components used by the trailer manufacturer and the wet bolts, bronze bushings and beefy shackles will clearly outlast the stock pieces. After 12,000 miles of towing, the stock plastic bushings were worn through and the holes in the shackle plates were elongated. The installation was easy, but it does take effort to drive the new bushings into the spring eyes. Just be sure to be safe and use adequate blocking and/or jack stands to take the weight off the axles.



by:

Dexter ez flex came to my door and was missing this part. I called 3x and they finally shipped it to me so I could get on the road. George J was very helpful and express mailed it to me. He was very helpful and I was able to complete my suspension upgrade. Suggestion for the future when packing Dexter ez flex for shipping , use more than one flimsy piece of tape on the top of the box. Now that the upgrade is complete and the shackle link is in place, I have driven 700 miles and the trailer rides very smooth. Thank you George J for your prompt service



by:

This was a replacement part for the shackle back plate that was not drilled correctly and thus would not fit the male shackle part. Once I contacted etrailer, they handled the replacement procedure and got the part to me pronto. Once I received all the parts, the suspension went on flawlessly. A very good product.



by:

These things are awesome and so is the customer service from the etrailer team.
The box came damaged and missing 1 small piece but a quick call to etrailer and they are sending the missing piece ASAP. Dexter just needs a better box for these heavy items.



by:

Excellent product but it needs to be bundled into a shackle link replacement kit. Steven D



by:

The product was easy to install and was a very heavy duty. It was a lot better than stock equipment and other replacements I have seen. Made the trailer quiet when going down the road

See what our Experts say about this Dexter Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension

  • Shackle Straps Touching Frame With Road Armor Equalizers
    If the shackles are touching the frame when using the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 it does indicate the shackles are too long, and since you mentioned you had 3-1/8" shackles, you can use shorter ones which can help. I recommend going with 2-1/4" straps, the Replacement Shackle Strap for E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System # 018-024-01.

  • Correct Replacement Shackle Links for Trailer Measuring 2-3/4" Long
    If you're just looking for a standard shackle strap which measures 2-3/4" long from eye to eye then we have just what you're looking for, the Shackle Strap part # TRSL275.

  • Availability of Heavy Duty 2-1/4 inch Long Shackle and Wet Bolt Kit
    It sounds like what you are lookin for is actually the replacement heavy duty shackle and bolt kit part # 018-026-05 and the replacement shackle part # 018-024-01. These are super thick at 1/2 inch and the correct length from bolt hole to bolt hole at 2-1/4 inch.

  • Comparing Lippert Never-Fail Bushings to the Bronze Bushings and Wet Bolt Option for Tandem Axles
    The bronze bushings and wet bolts are a great option but they still do require maintenance especially under the conditions you referenced. There really isn't any new information in comparing it is basically the difference between maintenance required and zero maintenance. The Never-Fail bushings # LC279685 are maintenance free and self-lubricating so they will be a better fit for you. This kit comes with the bushings for 4 springs and two equalizers for a complete tandem axle trailer....

  • Thicker Trailer Suspension Shackle Kit Recommendation that is 2-1/4 inches Between Bolt Holes
    We have the part # 018-026-05 which is a set of wet bolts with a single thicker shackle like you want that is 2-1/4 inches between the bolt holes. For additional shackles you'll want the part # 018-024-01 and then for nuts part # 006-092-01.

  • Will Heavy Duty Dexter Trailer Shackles Fit Equa Flex Trailer Equalizers
    Yes, the Equa Flex equalizers like you have use standard shackle bolt sizes so the upgrade kit part # 018-026-05 would work. We also have the nuts as part # 006-092-01 and the individual shackles as part # 018-024-01. For bronze bushings then you'd just need the # D014-077-00.

  • Thickest Trailer Suspension Shackle that is 2-1/4 inches Long
    The thickness of the Shackle Strap # TRSL225 that you referenced 3/16 inches. The thickest shackle we offer in the length of 2-1/4 inches is the part # 018-024-01 which is 1/2 inch thick. I know that sounds almost too thick to be true, but I've measured these before to verify. We also have these shackles with bolts as well as part # 018-026-05. Then for a lock nut you'd need # TRFA916DLNZ.

  • Availability of 2-1/4" Heavy Duty Shackle Straps
    I do have a solution, but the heavy duty shackle straps that come with the # MR58ZR are not available without the rest of the kit. For equivalent shackles you can use the Replacement Shackle Strap for E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle # 018-024-01. However, depending on the cost you may be better off purchasing an entirely new kit and not the individual shackles. It is also worth noting that the # MR58ZR is for trailers with Correct Track installed. If you do...

  • Recommended Heavy Duty Shackle Upgrade for Double Eye Springs and Road Armor Equalizer
    The Replacement Shackle Link with Bolts for Dexter Trailer Suspension Kits # 018-026-05 are 2-1/4 inch on center. The # K71-358-00 is 3-1/8 inches on center so too big for your system. The # 018-026-05 along with Shackle Strap # 018-024-01 and Replacement Flange Nut # 006-092-01 will work with your system and that Road Armor Equalizer # LC696740 without issue to give you the stronger shackles and wet bolt combination. The slight difference in length will still allow your system to...

  • Troubleshooting Tandem Axle Boat Trailer Equalizer Contacting Frame on Rear Spring
    There are a few things I would recommend checking before you start swapping parts. First will be to check the weight distribution with the boat on the trailer. Typically when the rear is hitting the frame like you have the weight may be to much on the rear of the trailer and the boat should be moved forward or gear on the boat moved to better evenly distribute the weight across the entire trailer. Second I would ensure that the boat trailer is pulling level when connected to the tow...
