Video Transcript for Review of Lippert Components Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Equalizers - LC1565391

Today we're going to take a look at the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair air-ride suspension upgrade for tandem axle suspension. Now more than 85 percent of all semi-tractors out there on the road today do have some kind of air-ride suspension, so why wouldn't your RV or trailer have that same kind of ride. Now you can do it affordably with the Center Point air-ride suspension system. Center Point will add the air-ride suspension to any RV or trailer, dramatically improving the ride and towing experience with two air bags that absorb road shock and reduce fore-aft trailer movement known as chucking. This would work really well on harsh trailer where you might want ride comfort, and it helps reduce movement of the trailer to keep your horses from moving around.This is very easy to install. It'll dramatically improve the passenger comfort, reduce side to side trailer sway.

It is designed for tandem axle configuration, and it does retrofit to your current suspension. Now that suspension must have double eye springs. It basically installs in place of your standard trailer equalizers. It does use the dual airbag absorption, so it does absorb road shock and vibration from both axles simultaneously and without delay, helps improve overall ride, reduce driver fatigue, and it even dampens road shock more effectively than torsion axles. It'll protect your RV and cargo.

Does improve breaking distance, in case of emergency or panic stop.One thing this does do is raise the trailer two inches. Now we have looked at some of the customer reviews under this product page, and if you notice in some of them people have mentioned that the extra two inches of lift helps give them extra clearance so that their RV or trailer does not bottom out. It'll also give extra clearance for your tires if they're close to rubbing when your trailer or RV is loaded. Are lots of times we have customers that want to upgrade to larger tires, so it'd even allow you to do that because you'll gain and extra two inches of height.This part does include everything laid out here on the table. It includes a left hand and right hand side Center Point subassembly, the eight shackles, eight bronze bushings, 14 wet bolts and 14 flange nuts, this nice air gauge panel that has the gauge on it to show you how much PSI is in your bags, and also the inflation valve to inflate it, six wire clips, 12 self-capping screws, some cable ties that take up any slack in the tubing, and of course they give you 24 feet of airline tubing.Now also, the easiest way to determine proper air pressure for these air springs is to inflate them until these plates right here are parallel or if there's about five inches space between them.

They do estimate about five PSI per thousand pounds of trailer weight. That should do it for the review on the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair air-ride suspension upgrade for tandem axle suspensions.

Do you have a question about this Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension?


  • Recommended Shock Absorption for Keystone Montana 5th Wheel with Tandem Axles
  • Trailer suspension uses different components for the air systems than the frame mounted suspension you are looking at. For your tandem axle Keystone Montana, I recommend the Lippert Components Trailair by Center Point Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle # LC1565391 which will give you adjustable air pressure in the form of an equalizer for your leaf springs. If you want a trailer with air suspension, this is the way to go with adjustable air springs that can use manual valves or...

  • Recommended Lippert Trailair by Center Point Air Ride Trailer Suspension for Jayco Pinnacle 36fbts
  • The Lippert Components Trailair by Center Point Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle # LC1565391 will give you the smoothest ride of any of our comparable suspension systems. It will give you an extra 2 inches of trailer rise, so your trailer would most likely not have any tire rub if you were to upgrade. Your current system is more comparable to the Dexter E-Z Flex # K71-652-00 or Lippert Equa-Flex which both use rubber springs to cushion the ride. These are all really good...

  • Will the Timbren Silent Ride Suspension TSR14K35T01 Work with a 14,000 Lb Trailer
  • The Timbren Silent Ride Suspension for Tandem Axle Trailers part # TSR14K35T01 will be perfect for your 14,000 lb 5th wheel trailer. The capacity only needs to be rated for the weight over the axles, not the entire weight of the trailer. Since you have a 5th wheel, 15-20% of the trailer's weight will be placed on the tow vehicle so this then puts you right in the sweet spot for the system which is about 80% capacity. That said, the Timbren Silent Ride Suspension cannot be ordered with...

  • Replacement Leaf Springs to use With Lippert Center Point Air Ride Suspension System
  • In order to determine the correct replacement leaf springs to work with your Center Point Air-Ride Suspension System # LC1565391, you'll need to know your axle's weight capacity as well as the length from the center of spring eye to center of spring eye in your former leaf springs. There will likely be some slight elongation in your old springs, which you should take into account when choosing replacements. The springs you mentioned, for 7,000 lbs axles, have a length from center of...

  • Can Skid Wheels be Used to Help Keep 5th Wheel Trailer from Bottoming Out with Steep Driveway
  • You definitely can install the Ultra-Fab Skid Wheels # UF48-979013 on your 42' 5th wheel but it is worth noting that the wheel and caster plate measures 7-1/2" tall so if the 16-1/4" that you measured is from the frame rail then that means your ground clearance will be reduced to 8-3/4" which really isn't much at all. If your frame sits below the skirting on your 5th wheel trailer then you should be able to use a shorter option like the Ultra-Fab Steel Micro-Roller # UF48-979021 which...

  • Recommended Air Suspension Kit for 13,000 lb Tandem Axle Food Trailer
  • To assist with the stability of the trailer, an air suspension system will give you the support you are seeking for off center loads as well as offering a smoother ride and support for off center loads. For this system, I recommend the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle # LC1565391. This system also raises your trailer about 2 inches to give you additional clearance. If you want suspension support but don't want the air system, you may...

  • Recommended Trailer Suspension Upgrade On 2016 StarCraft 24 RLS
  • For a suspension upgrade on your 1216 StarCraft 24 RLS, I recommend the Timbren Silent Ride Suspension for Tandem Axle Trailers w/ 2-1/2" Round Axles - 7,000 lbs # TSR7000T06. This system replaces leaf spring suspension to provide a stable ride distributing weight evenly between both axles. Rubber springs absorb road shock. This installation requires a 2 inch by 4 inch hollow steel crossmember with 3/16 inch thickness that is not included. If you have 3 inch axles, you will want #...

  • Will Over-Under Kit Raise Height of 5th Wheel Trailer with Leaf Springs Above the Axles
  • If your leaf springs are already located above your trailer axle then the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-385-00 won't change anything as its designed to relocate axles from above the leaf springs to below the leaf springs. There are a few other ways that you can still add some height to your trailer though. We have the Lippert Tandem Axle Lift Kit # LC407131 which will raise your trailer up to 2", you can change out your hangers (see linked list of products),...

  • Options to Raise the Overall Height of a 5th Wheel or Travel Trailer
  • Installation of a replacement pin box like the Lippert 1621 5th Wheel Pin Box - 18,000 lbs # LC1191151 does not raise the overall height of a 5th wheel trailer, but it may give more adjustability to the height of the king pin. I've attached an image of the dimensions of this pin box as well as the adjustability based on hole spacing 2 inches on center vertically. I've attached a link to all of the pin boxes compatible with the 1621 for your convenience. To give you additional trailer...

  • Recommendation For Upgrading Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizer
  • The Equa-Flex Equalizer, Item # LC279687, is already an upgraded equalizer so there are not many "next level" options. The Lippert Components Center Point Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade, Item # LC1565391, is an overall better system but not significantly so. If you need a smoother ride, you could add shocks like the Lippert Bolt-On Mount Kit w/Heavy Duty Shocks, Item # LC281281. The Timbren Trailer Suspension, Item # TTRA1032, could also be an option worth considering. If you...

  • Recommendations for Lifting Travel Trailer About 3 Inches
  • To raise your travel trailer about 3 inches, your best option is to use an over under kit like # K71-384-00 for 2-3/8 inch diameter axle or # K71-385-00 for a 3 inch axle. These kits will convert your axle and suspension so the axle will be under the leaf springs so it will raise your trailer the diameter of your axle plus the height of your leaf spring stack. Another option is the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle # LC1565391 which...

  • Recommendation to Raise Trailer Frame Height for Clearance From Axle
  • You cannot raise your trailer by the method you described. You would instead need to replace your hangers with longer ones or use a system that adds height like the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle # LC1565391 which increases the ride height of your frame by 2 inches. Typically, if you need more clearance from your axle, the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-385-00 for 3 inch axles is the best route to go. This...

  • How to Help Reduce 5th Wheel Trailer Sway with 4" Difference in Front to Back Trailer Height
  • There are definitely a handful of options to help you level your Mobile Suites 5th wheel trailer with your 2019 Ford F-450. If you have exhausted the height variations of the Anderson Ultimate Connection # AM3200 and your pin box then it may be useful to swap out your pin box and 5th wheel hitch but I actually have a different solution that I think you'll like better. If you install the Lippert Components Center Point, part # LC1565391 for tandem axle or part # LC1565401 for triple axle,...

  • Can Timbren Silent Ride Suspension # TSR14KT01 be Upgraded to Air Bags
  • The Timbren Silent Ride Suspension # TSR14KT01 that you referenced is specifically designed for the double Aeon rubber springs that should not be swapped out for air bags. So to answer your first and third questions, no. The rubber springs are a great alternative to leaf springs (or even air springs) and require virtually no maintenance. These would be perfect for your 7K tandem axle trailers as long as they have 3" round axles (which is pretty standard). Since I am not sure the dimensions...

  • Does Lippert Center Point Suspension Upgrade Work With Correct Track Alignment?
  • The Correct Track alignment is compatible with the Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade # LC1565391. In terms of fitment, this suspension will work on tandem axle trailers and you must have double-eye springs; the installation manual, which I'll link for you also has these requirements which you'll want to make sure you meet: "the coach must also come equipped with the standard center hanger shape. The hanger may vary in dimension but it must be sized for a 1-3/4” leaf spring...

  • Will the Trailair by Center Point Air-Ride Suspension Raise the Height of a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Using the Center Point suspension # LC1565391 for tandem axles or # LC1565401 for triple axles will raise the height of the trailer by 2 inches. So it is not only a good way to upgrade the suspension for a better ride but will also provide that little bit of lift you are needing.

  • Will Lippert Center Point System Reduce Sway and Body Roll on a Trailer
  • Lippert Components Center Point # LC1565391 will help some with the sway/body roll caused by cross winds or large vehicles passing by. It won't eliminate it completely. Provided the system can still function like normal in the higher position on your frame then you can install it there. This may or may not require changing the other hangers to shorter ones. You can still use the shocks as long as they will fit with this system installed. I would hang on to the Timbren springs until...

  • How Does Lippert Center Point Air Ride Trailer Suspension Install and Can it be Used on 21k Trailer
  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert and he informed me that the Center Point part # LC1565391 will support a 21,000 lb trailer. That being said, since you have a triple axle trailer you would want the part # LC1565401 instead. Bag failure is extremely unlikely but if it were to fail you would still be able to travel. I attached a couple pictures that detail the installation. It basically just replaces you current equalizers and shackles. They attach to your hangers and then directly to...

  • Tandem Axle Trailer Suspension Upgrade Kits That Use Leaf Springs and Replace Leaf Springs
  • We have multiple options in a trailer suspension kit, including one that retains your existing double-eye leaf springs, the Lippert Center Point # LC1565391, as well as the Timbren Silent Ride kits like # TSR14KT01 that DO get rid of your leaf springs. All tandem trailer kits are shown on the linked page. The Lippert Center Point # LC1565391 replaces the equalizer in your tandem axle leaf spring suspension with an air bag.

  • Are Shocks Needed When Using the Lippert Components Center Point
  • It is not required to use shock absorbers alongside the Lippert Components Center Point part # LC1565391. There will still be a dramatic increase in ride quality without them. The reason that you do see the pair being used together is because the airbags have a tendency to bounce a bit on bumpy roads and the shock absorbers will minimize this. Most individuals who install the Center Point are looking for the best possible ride so they will go all out so to speak and add shocks as well but...

  • Will the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Replace a MORryde CRE3000 Suspension System
  • Yes, the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade part # LC1565391 will work in place of your MORryde CRE3000 Suspension System, you just need to make sure you have at least 2-1/2" from the hole on the center leaf spring hanger to the bottom of the frame. The Trailair Air-Ride will actually be an upgrade as the shock absorption will be much greater with the airbags than it would be for the rubber included with the above MORryde equalizers.

  • Will the Lippert Components Center Point Work with the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers
  • The Roadmaster Comfort Ride Shock Absorbers for Tandem Axle Trailers like part # RM-2450 for example come with upper brackets which are deigned to mount directly to the frame rail just before the center leaf spring hanger. The issues you are going to run into trying to use them with the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade part # LC1565391 is that the extra airbags and brackets on this equalizer are going to make the physical size of it much lager which...

  • Recommended Over-Under Kit for Level Towing of 2019 Forest River Cherokee Arctic Wolf 5th Wheel
  • The photo doesn't look too bad and six inches of clearance above the bed is good, but if you want a level towing for the safest ride I recommend using an over-under kit to flip your axles. This will lift your trailer the diameter of your axle plus the height of your leaf spring stack. For that you want the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-385-00. This will mean adjusting your pin box again and possibly changing out your steps, but it will also give you more clearance...

  • How Much Height Does Lippert Center Point Air Ride Suspension Kit Add to Trailer
  • Using the Center Point suspension # LC1565391 for tandem axles or # LC1565401 for triple axles will raise the height of the trailer by 2 inches. There isn't a way around that unfortunately but typically additional ground clearance works well for most trailer.

  • Options for Tandem Axle Trailer to Raise Trailer 2 Inches without Flipping Axle
  • You can cut off your hangers and weld taller ones in their place. There is not a hanger extension kit but there is one other option I know of that will raise your trailer by 2 inches. It is the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle # LC1565391. This air ride system is the only other way I know to directly lift your trailer 2 inches without using an over-under kit like # K71-385-00 for 3 inch axles or # K71-384-00 for 2-3/8 inch axles.

  • As long as your trailer currently has tandem axles and double eye leaf spring suspension (bolt holes on either side of the spring), with the Lippert Components Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade # LC1565391 will fit and work great! I looked up your trailer and from what I was able to find it looks like you'd be good but you might still check to make sure your current springs have bolt holes on either side.
