Video Transcript for Lippert Never Fail Bushings Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Lippert Component's Never Fail Bushing, designed for use with inch and three-quarter, either double round eye springs, or equalizers. Now, these have a 9/16 inch inner diameter, and 11/16 inch outer diameter. These Never Fail Bushings are designed to be a direct replacement for either the white nylon style, or the brass bushings that we are going to typically have in our spring set up. The great advantage to these, is the polyamide construction. It makes for a bushing that we're never going to have to replace. This is never going to wear out. It's going to keep the size of our bolt that 9/16, it's going to keep everything nice and tight on our trailer. The polyamide material is also a self lubricating material, so no longer, once we have these in place, will we have to get underneath the trailer, worry about our wet bolts, and greasing those up.

It's going to be hassle free solution. We put it on our trailer, and we'll never have to worry about it again. Now, the replacement process is very straight forward. Basically, we just need to remove the existing bushing. These are brand new, so these look nice, but typically these nylon bushings, they wear out, going to cause a lot of squeaks, a lot of movement in your trailer components. That can eventually lead to premature wear of things like your bolts, and even your springs. Now, what we'll do, sometimes if you just push on these, you can see that one's actually pushing out a little bit.

If it doesn't push out, you can always take a socket. I like the 7/16, seems to be the right size. Then you can just tap on that. See how that's going to drive that out for us. Once that's out, the Never Fail, just want to get that lined up, so that's lined up, just tap it in.

That's down there, nice and flush. Now our 9/16 inch bolt will be able to slide right through there. It's going to give us a really nice secure, snug fit. Just want to go through and replace at each of our equalizer connections, in each of our spring end connections. For a standard single axle trailer without an equalizer, you'll just need four. For a tandem trailer, or a trailer that has two axles with the standard equalizer just like this, you're going to need a total of 14 to do both sides.

For your triple axle trailers that have two equalizers like this one, you're going to need a total of 24. We have several different quantities available on our website, so just be sure to get what you need. You'll have a hassle free replacement. Now, we're going to have nearly the same process for our springs. Again, the socket, pretty good solution there. Just get that tapped right down in there. We're ready for re-assembly. That's going to complete our look at the Lippert Component's Never Fail Bushings, with the 9/16 inch inner diameter, and 11/16 inch outer diameter.

The bushings are working fine. I do not hear metal on metal squeaks from the springs as I do on nylon bushings when they are worn out. Mileage so far on the bushings are about 7000 miles. 364860


Comments

I really liked these bushings, but due to other suspension problems not related to them, I had to replace springs and did not have a set of Never Fail bushings. I have about 6000 miles on the stock bushings and am tired of the squeaks, will be replacing the factory nylon with the Never Fail bushings shortly

I have read a few articles about these bushings and how good they were so I decided to give them a try. I at first order just four separate bushings but they were backordered. With the help of the great service provided by Natalie L. I was able to switch to this kit. These bushings slide easily into the eye hole of the springs and still felt snug. Even the bolts slid into the bushings easily and snug. Now will have to wait and see how these handle over time. Natalie L. was great in helping me switch my order to these so I did not have to wait for the backordered ones. 407220

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


  • Never Fail Bushings and Bolts for a Trailer with Equa Flex Cushioned Equalizers
  • The Never Fail bushings come in a variety of quantities. We have an 8 pack, # LC279684, a 14 pack # LC279685, a 22 pack # LC279686, and a single # LC281625. I didn't know if you wanted to have some extras for spares or not so I listed all the options. Please note Never Fail bushings should be used with standard suspension bolts only. Do not use wet bolts with these bushings as the grease can cause the bushings to degrade. If you wanted to use wet bolts at places that don't use the Never...

  • Comparing Bronze and Nylon Bushings for Trailer Suspension
  • It really just depends on what you are looking to get out of the bushings. Bronze bushings, like part # K71-291-00, will last longer but are more noisy and it is recommended to use wet bolts like part # 126B2 to keep them lubricated. Nylon bushings, like part # SP05-060, are much quieter and can be used with regular bolts like part # 166081 since they don't need to be lubricated as much. As far as lifespan goes the bronze will last longer but not so much longer that they are much better...

  • Replacement Shackle Straps For 1999 Ranger Boat Trailer With Tandem Axles
  • On your 1999 Ranger boat trailer with tandem axles, I recommend the Replacement Shackle Link with Bolts for Dexter Trailer Suspension Kits # 018-026-05. If instead you want to piece together your system, I recommend using the Locknut - 9/16" Diameter # TRFA916DLNZ, never fail bushings # LC279684, and galvanized strap # 18-11GALV. If you want to use the regular wet bolts, you can use # 126B2. If you want a complete basic kit, you can use the Tandem-Axle Trailer Equalizer Kit for 1-3/4"...

  • Will Never Fail Bushings Fit Lippert Equa-Flex equalizer
  • Yes, you can use Never Fail Bushings with your Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers - Double Eye Springs - Tandem Axle - 6K to 8K # LC279688. These bushings come in a quantity of 8 # LC279684, a quantity of 14 # LC279685 or a quantity of 22 # LC279686. Just keep in mind you will want to use Never Fail Bushings with standard suspension bolts and not wet bolts. I have added a link to a video review of these bushings for you to check out as well.

  • Need Never Fail Bushings to Use With the Dexter E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System
  • The E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System # K71-652-00, that you referenced, comes with brass bushings. To replace the 8 brass bushings that come with the E-Z Flex, you will want part # LC279684 which has 8 Never Fail bushings. Keep in mind that when using the Never Fail Bushings you will not be greasing the bolts since the Never Fail Bushings are self-lubricating.

  • Will the Lippert Never Fail Bushings Part # LC279684 Fit the 4-Leaf Spring Part # SP-212275
  • Yes, the 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring part # SP-212275 come with the nylon bushing which are inserted into the eyelet hole of each opening. The Never Fail Bushings part # LC279684 that you reference are not made of metal but instead a modified polyamide. The modified polyamide will last much longer than than standard nylon bushing and are also self-lubricating. They will work with the above leaf springs and the Curved Equalizer part # TREQ356.

  • Upgrading Leaf Spring Equalizers on a 5th Wheel RV With 6,000 lb Axles
  • To upgrade your leaf spring bushings and equalizers on your 5th wheel RV with 6,000 lb axles you will first want to measure the distance, center on center, of the two holes where your leaf springs and shackle straps connect to your current equalizer. Our Equa-Flex equalizers are a great upgrade option and they include the 3K-6K, part # LC279687, that have a 5-1/2 inch measurement, and the 6K-8K, part # LC279688, which have a 7-1/2 measurement. You will want to choose the equalizers...

  • Never Fail Bushing Or Shock Installation On A Tandem Axle Trailer
  • The correct Never Fail Bushings for your trailer are part # LC279684. The Never Fail Bushings are not compatible with wet bolts kits therefore, you will need to use the Zinc Shackle Bolt with Locknut for Double-Eye Springs part # TRFA73Z916DLNZ. Even with the Never Fail Bushings and Upgraded Equalizers, you will still see an improvement in your trailers handling and stability if you add shocks. The shocks will allow for a much greater distance of suspension travel and smoother ride....

These fit the industry standard number 42 spindles. For this you will need the inner bearing # 25580 and outer bearing # 02475 along with oil seal # 10-63. I recommend you check the bearing diameters to make sure they match your spindles. I've attached a photo and article to assist. For your disc...

If you current shackle straps are not even close to that dimension, then you will want to use the Never Fail Bushings - 9/16" Inner Diameter, 11/16" Outer Diameter - 1-5/8" - Qty 8 # LC279684 and wet bolt # 126B2.

In all reality having shackle straps that are slightly thinner will not be a problem at all.

If you are still having doubts about the shackle straps then you can just purchase the Never Fail Bushings by themselves. For...

  • 3,500 lb Leaf Springs and Hanger Kit Recommendation for a Mobile Home Trailer
  • Mobile home axles/suspension are typically designed for one time use, so picking out components to work with mobile home components can be tricky. Your best bet is to do what you did with your axles and just start over with quality stuff that you will know will work. First let's start with a spring. For a 3,500 lb spring the part # SP-212275 would be a great choice. For a u-bolt kit you would want part # APUBR-1. For a tandem axle hanger kit you would want the part # APT3. The Never...

  • Trailer Leaf Spring Bushings with 9/16 Inner Diameter and 3/4 Outer Diameter
  • There can be some slight measurement differences among the various bushings of the same part number. So if you went with a 9/16 inner and 3/4 outer, like # SP05-060, then it will work though it is possible that the fit will be tighter for some than others especially since there are tolerances in the spring eyes as well.

  • Best Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers for a 2014 Evergreen Bayhill 295RL
  • There were two different versions of the Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers to my knowledge, ones with the Never Fail bushings and ones with the bronze bushings. It sounds like you have the Never Fail bushings. These bushings actually have a lifetime warranty so if they are faulty and you have proof of purchase then they can be replaced under warranty. If you do not have proof of purchase then you can still replace them with part # LC281625 (Qty. 1), part # LC279684 (Qty. 8), part # LC279685...

  • Should Shackle Bolts on Trailer Suspension Get Lubrication
  • Yes, I would recommend keeping the bolts of the # AP233 lubricated. An easy way to do this is to use wet bolts like part # 126B2 which have a zerk fitting that allows for easy application of grease to them. Or you can use Never Fail Bushings like part # LC279684 that don't require any lubrication.

  • Our Tandem-Axle Hanger Kit, # APT8, comes with the bushings already pressed into the equalizers, but it does not include the bushings for the leaf springs. If you need bushings for your leaf springs, you will want to pickup up 8 of part # TRBU11566 for standard nylon bushings or we offer Lippert's Never Fail Bushing Set, # LC279684. This set includes 8 bushings, so you will only need to purchase a quantity of 1. The Never Fail bushings cost more, but they will perform much better...

  • The Never Fail Triple Axle Suspension Upgrade Hardware Kit for Double Eye Springs # LC281288 will work with your Eqau-Flex Triple Axle set-up. If you want a wet bolt application, I recommend you use the Never Fail Bushings - 9/16" Inner Diameter, 11/16" Outer Diameter - 1-5/8" - Qty 8 # LC279684 along with the Wet Equalizer Bolt with Locknut and Grease Zerk for Double-Eye Springs - 3" Long # 126B2.

If these are too long for your application they can easily be trimmed down but the standard double eye springs are 1-3/4 inches wide for the correct fit.

  • Can Bushings in Equalizer # TREQE34 be Easily Replaced
  • Considering that there is a lot of pressure on any bushings used in a suspension system it is no surprise they are stuck. And it will likely happen again. Bushings in Curved Equalizer # TREQE34 can be removed. The easiest way on it or any equalizer with bushings is to use one of the same size to drive out the old one so you are basically removing the old one and installing a new one at the same time (provided the one being installed doesn't somehow break in the process). You can use...

  • Can I Replace Nylon Bushings with the Never Fail Bushings on my E-Z Flex Suspension
  • I recommend using the Never Fail bushings as a replacement. The Never Fail Bushing, part # LC281625, is designed to never have to be replaced. It is maintenance-free and self-lubricating so you never have to crawl under your trailer again to apply grease. The bushing has an inner diameter of 9/16 inches, an outer diameter of 11/16 inches and a length of 1-3/4 inches. As long as the ones you are replacing use this same size then you are good to go.You can either order them individually with...

  • Recommendation For Wet Leaf Spring Hanger Bolts And Bushings For Lippert 8,000-lb Axle
  • Based on your information, the closest bolts we have for your needs are 4-1/2 inches long. The Redline Spring Eye Bolt with Grease Zerk, Item # 7-135-2, is a grade 5 bolt that is 4-1/2 inches long x 3/4 inches in diameter. A similar bolt from Redline, Item # 7-260-2, is a grade 2 bolt that is 4-1/2 inches long x 7/8 inches in diameter. If you measure your bolts and bushings and send me the dimensions, I can make a specific recommendation.

  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert who said that the Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers # LC279688 used to come with the Never Fail Bushings but that they now come with the bronze bushings. You can replace them with the Never Fail Bushings # LC279684 but it would be easier to just use the Wet Equalizer Bolt # 126B2 which comes with a grease zerk for easy lubrication of the bronze bushings.
