Illustration of a triple axle trailer suspension system

Shackle straps (or shackle links) are used to attach your leaf springs to the hangers and equalizers on your trailer. On triple-axle trailers that have both standard and EQ-105-style equalizers, the rear of the first leaf spring is attached via shackle straps to the front of the EQ-105-style equalizer, and the front of the middle leaf spring is attached directly to that same equalizer. The rear of the middle leaf spring and the front of the rearmost leaf spring are attached via shackle straps to the standard equalizer. Suspension bolts hold the various moving components of a trailer suspension system together and serve as the pivot points in the system.

Video Transcript for Lippert Components Trailer Suspension - Leaf Spring Suspension - LC281288 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Never Fail Triple Axle Suspension Upgrade Hardware Kit for Double Eye Springs. This upgrade kit lets you replace the bushings, shackle straps, bolts, and nuts in your trailer's suspension system. This is designed for use on triple-axle trailers with double eye leaf springs that have two EQ-105 equalizers. Now, these right here are the Never Fail Bushings. These fit into the spring eyes and equalizer bolt holes to ensure proper sizing for suspension bolts. These are extra durable modified polyamide construction.

Never wears out. Features a self-lubricating and maintenance-free design, so there's never any messy grease required for those.Also, you'll notice that it comes with two differently sized shackle straps. These help secure your leaf springs to your trailer. The different sized design accommodates a variety of suspension systems, so these right here are a little bit longer. These are the 3-1/8" long shackle straps measured from the center of one hole to the center of the other, and then this set over here is 2-1/4" long shackle straps.

Again, center to center. That's where we get that measurement from.The suspension bolts located right here, these are designed to join components together like your springs, shackle straps, equalizers and so on. Everything in the kit is laid out here, so you get 22 Never Fail Bushings. You get 12 2-1/4" long shackle straps, 12 3-1/8" long shackle straps, 22 suspension bolts, and 22 hex flange nuts. Now, the bushings have an inner diameter of 9/16 with an outer diameter of 11/16, and they measure 1-5/8" long.

The bolts have a length measurement of 2-5/16". That's typically measured from the bottom of the bolt head to the end of the threads, so if we place that ruler on there, you can see that that actually measures about 2-7/8.If we just measure the usable length here from the bottom of the bolt head to the end of this portion here, or to the beginning of the first thread, that's where we get the 2-5/16" measurement from, and this is a 7/16"x20 bolt size. Then the shackle strap thickness made from durable steel measuring 1/8" thick. Again, these measure 3-1/8" long center on center, and then these are 2-1/4" long center on center. That's going to do it for today's look at the Never Fail Triple Axle Suspension Upgrade Hardware Kit for Double Eye Springs..

This is a very complete kit for 3 axle trailers using 9/16 bolts. The fasteners, bushings, and shackles are of great fit and finish and high quality. It contains just the right amount of pieces for the job, and included choice of two shackle lengths. I'm glad I bought these for my spring change, as the removed ones were starting to wear out, and I wouldn't have considered reusing them anyway. I definitely recommend this product, or the variant that will fit your trailer. 409185

These were a perfect fit for my originals. I'm glad they sent the 2 sizes of buckles since my measurements didn't seem to match the description of the various products I found. They did seem thinner than the originals, but price was good. 519849


Comments

A year later and several weighted trips over the Rockies, the replacement parts are holding up great! No stress cracks, bending, boring, or otherwise. I could do without the creeking that might not be there with the greasable option, but I chose this lower maintenance option to see just how long the greaseless sleeves will hold up.

Great product! All the bushings once pressed in to the springs and levelers were nice and snug around the bolts, unlike the white plastic ones that normally come with a little slop in them. 489975

I will give them 5 stars for ease of installation an what appeared to be quality hardware. Time will tell though if they will last. Only about 50 miles on them so far but no more squeeking from my RV suspension. 430939

After a year and a few thousand miles suspension is back to sqweaking. Will do bronze and grease next time.

It's hard to tell if the bushings are holding up without taking apart the suspension. But I've been on long trips over rough roads and all seems fine after a year of use. My only complaint is the shackle brackets were thinner than what I had. Also the job was certainly more difficult than the video portrayed... mostly getting the old bushings out. 463513


Comments

A year later and all is well. The fifth wheel has been cross country twice including Newfoundland with no apparent problems. Suspension is quieter as well.

I purchased this for my 2015 Cougar XLite 27RKS fifth wheel camper. I have about 25,000 miles on it and the shackles were about to break at the top. It was a great fit, I used the short shackle straps, bushings and bolts. The CRE/3000 Cougar equalizers have brass bushings, I replaced the top bushing and bolt but left the two lower brass bushings and used the new bolts. I had to pass a 9/16th bit through the top bushing to fit the bolt but all came out nice. The furthest forward bolts and furthest rearward bolts on the springs are longer than the ones supplied with the kit so I replaced the bushings and reused the old bolts. I now have four extra bushings, four extra bolts and four long shackle straps. I noticed the long straps could be re-drilled and cut shorter for a complete replacement of one side in the future. I have been a long time customer of etrailer and they haven't disappointed me yet. The package arrived just as they said it would, safe and sound. They don't come with instructions but the video does a good job. The bushings don't come out as easy as the video shows, I used a screw driver and drift punch. I used a short piece of pipe to seat the bolt splines into the shackle straps on the bench rather than beating on the equalizer, they went right in with a little wiggling. I used the camper landing gear to raise the camper and two scissor jacks for the axles. I also didn't remove the tires. The total job took maybe two hours. All in all a good product and worth the peace of mind. 576663

Installed the Never Fail Upgrade Kit subsequent to doing an axle flip on my trailer. The only complaint I have is regarding the suspension bolt nuts. I did not use air tools during assembly, only hand tools and still managed to strip the threads on a couple of nuts which necessitated a trip to the hardware store. A couple of tips: Ensure that any hammering on the suspension bolts is done and the bolts fully seated before installing the nuts. Do not be tempted to pull stubborn bolts through or attempt to seat the suspension bolts by torquing the nuts down. Also, don't hammer on the side of your equalizer. Hammer the suspension bolts into the shackle straps first and then bolt them to the equalizer. In summary, I would definitely buy again. I would have given five stars without the trip to the hardware store. I would consider upgrading the nuts to Grade 8. As a side note, it was great doing business with etrailer. I had a couple of questions that were very quickly answered, even during the weekend. Great communications and shipping notifications and the items were packaged very well. I will be doing more business with etrailer in the future. 484983

Everything needed was there and fit perfectly. Pay attention when assembling stamped links - holes have slight taper and when positioned so larger diameter hole faces the direction the bolts enter things slide together easily. It is amazing how the new parts eliminated all the excess slop in joints. 242658

The order came fast and the quality looks good so will install the kit next week. Had installed a similar (wet bolt kit with the bronze bushings) on another trailer and while these kits are much better quality than the nylon bushings that came with the trailers. The stock bushings were completely shot on my previous camper at about 7500 miles. 244452

The shackle straps and bushings were totally worn out. I ordered the never fail trailer suspension kit which contained all the parts needed to do the job. No surprises with wrong parts or parts that don't fit. After a year of use, and about 2200 miles, the suspension is holding up fine. I would recommend this kit to anyone looking to rebuild their suspension on their trailer. 400226

Went together easier than I thought it would. Trailer tracked very well on our trip to Florida last spring. Was dissapointed that the nuts were not self locking. Added some loctite thread locker for my own piece of mind. Was shocked how much wear on the shackles had occurred. 341768

I received product the hardware is too long . When I order I thought the never fails axle suspension upgrade was a better choose than economy value one but the bolts are 3 1/8 long but I need 3 in. Customer service was no help. Now I would need to send about 50 dollars to get the correct bolts. 436454

Great kit with some issues. When tapping the shoulder bolts thru the bushings you need to use an old bolt or pin from the opposite side to ensure the holes align perfectly. I tore 2 bushings in half with the very sharp shoulder of the new bolts and had to order replacement parts. Also in trying to get the knurled head of the bolt to bottom out in the shackle strap I tried driving it in with a hammer like in the video and it wouldn't work. I found doubling up the shackle strap by using an old shackle strap on the threaded end of the bolt and an old nut to pull the knurled head into the strap worked much better. 437610

Review from a similar Lippert Components Never Fail in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


This is the second set of "Never Fail" bushings I have installed on this trailer. They are excellent bushings and last way longer than any I have tried before. I would give a five star rating except for the name "Never Fail". Anyone who knows the mechanics of suspension knows there if no such thing as never fail in bushings. But these lasted 32K miles on a two axle 9K pound 5th wheel trailer which is easily twice what I've gotten out of other bushings. So these are great bushings; just don't expect them to last forever!! You can see in the pictures that the bushings are badly worn after 32 thousand miles .... but they hadn't failed yet!! 509198

One should not have issues with a 3 year old camper but things do happen. I got to inspecting the tire ware and noticed that the shackles had way to much play in them so I pulled one off and inspected it. Sure enough the were ob-longed and not just one but 4 of them. A closer look and the plastic bushings were dead. I went to the inteweb and sent an email to etrailer. Less than 24 hrs I had a response. I called the next morning and had a great conversation with their support team. They recommended a never fail tandem rebuild kit for the Lippert axle. That was on a Wednesday and I had the parts Friday and today I put it all together. No instruction but not really needed. They do have a video to watch if you need. I still wonder about the "Never Fail" part of the add but will check on all the part next spring. Great service and quality parts, can't ask for much more than that. 380111
