Absorbs Road Shock and Reduces Chucking

Upgrade your trailer's suspension for a smoother ride with these cushioned Equa-Flex equalizers. These units deliver a ride as smooth as you'd get with torsion axles, but at a fraction of the cost. The rubber cores effectively absorb vibrations and bumps and reduce the back-and-forth movement known as chucking. Unlike standard cast equalizers, the Equa-Flex's rubber cores soak up this energy like a sponge instead of transferring it to your trailer and cargo. The result is a more comfortable ride with less wear and tear on your trailer.


Never Fail Bushings

Never Fail bushings are designed to be the last bushings you'll ever need for your trailer's suspension system. Their modified polyamide construction is extra-durable and can outlast nylon or bronze bushings. Plus, Never Fail bushings are maintenance-free and self-lubricating - no need to use messy grease, replace, or worry about them for as long as they are on your trailer.


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.


Easy Installation

Illustration of a triple axle trailer suspension system

It's easy to upgrade your trailer's standard suspension with a set of cushioned Equa-Flex equalizers. To begin, insert one Never Fail bushing into each of the bolt holes on the equalizers. Each EQ-105-style equalizer includes a suspension bolt to attach the equalizer to the front of the middle leaf spring on your trailer. You will need an additional 16 standard suspension bolts and 12 shackle straps (each sold separately) to incorporate the equalizers into your trailer's suspension system. Four of the suspension bolts will be used to suspend the equalizers from the center hangers, and the other 12 bolts will be used with the shackle straps to attach the equalizers to the double-eye leaf springs. If you would like to replace the bolts that attach the springs to your front and rear hangers as well, you will need 4 additional suspension bolts (sold separately).

Video Transcript for Review of Lippert Components Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Equalizers - LC281314

Today we're taking a look at the Equa-Flex cushioned equalizers. Now, this leaf spring suspension upgrade kit provides a smoother ride for your triple-axle trailer. This is designed for use on triple-axle trailers with double-eye leaf springs that have two EQ-105 equalizers, part number on those, TREQ105.Now the unique thing about these equalizers or the Equa-Flex design is they have these cushions, so these are cushioned equalizers that simply replace the cast equalizers that came standard on your trailer. So each one laid out here on the table has a rubber core that's designed to minimize the amount of chucking, which is the back and forth movement, and helps to absorb road shock. That rubber core is protected by a nice sturdy steel body, and that has a corrosion-resistant design to it.I also want to point out that the bushings are included, already pre-installed. It's a quick simple installation.

The bushings are just inserted into the equalizer bolt holes, center hangers are designed to suspend the equalizers, and then the springs attach to the ends of the equalizers with bolts and shackle straps. Those are the springs that are on your trailer. Now your hangers, bolts, and shackle straps, all of those items are sold separately. It does come with two bolts and two nuts, and that's for this attachment point here on these equalizers.Now again, this is designed for triple-axle trailers with double-eye leaf springs. Axle capacity, 3,000 pounds to 6,000 pounds, and the last thing I want to mention is basically just the center and top bolt hole diameters with the bushings installed, it's 9/16ths of an inch.That's going to do it for today's look at the Equa-Flex cushioned equalizers..

Just to say shipping was great and fast, install took place several days later and that went very well also. Plans are to try out the new install in the coming weeks, I see no problems, very satisfied from cost to install even with age and fiscal handicaps. Thanks etrailer for appears to be a solid design product. I would recommend this product over a flex design after 4 years needed replacement. 612517

I received my Equa-flex cushioned equalizers along with the Never-Fail bushing kit both by Lippert. I did take delivery as projected by etrailer and have had them installed on my 5th wheel. So far, they are performing well and have given me peace of mind as we prepare to embark on a 10 - 15K trip to the west and northwest U.S. from Florida. etrailer services and tech center were excellent. Cathy T.is exceptional! 609473

After 10 years of wear and tear it was time to replace my equaflex system. As always etrailer staff was very helpful getting me the correct replacement parts and any upgrade parts I had questions about. Shipping was fast and the package came in damage free. Installation was a breeze and straight forward. I also added wet bolts to the spring hangers and shackles. A very good upgrade for most RV suspensions. Very satisfied customer and etrailer is definitely my go-to company. 576018

Worthy upgrade from the stock factory Equalizers, I have a much improved ride it is smother less bounce and jerkiness. Install was straight forward remove the bolts holding the old equalizers on just make sure you have a couple of jacks and jack stands as I needed to tease the springs back into place. Use the jack stands to hold up the trailer and jacks to move the axle and spring into proper alignment with the new equalizers. The fit isn't the same as the old ones I had but more then easy to get the bolt holes to line up. Also don't be surprised the factory bushings are worn out, replaced mine with brass bushings and they can be greased. 574906

We are so happy to learn about etrailer from our friend. Our experience ordering from etrailer was so pleasant working with Crystal. She was very knowledgeable and everything that we needed to replace the springs on our trailer and recommended items that we would need to make our installation perfect!

This product is excellent, and every RV should have them installed in place of the inferior manufacture supplied suspension parts. I installed them with minimal tools, and it took about an hour for each side. An impact wrench is very useful for this chore. I would highly recommend this product. 356326

I had to replace the original set on my trailer because they were rusted and the shackle bolts were seized. E trailer didn't have these in stock and had to get them from the manufacture so there was some delay. Straight forward installation once I received them. 307706

I bought these to replace the worn-out ones I had on my trailer. It was approximately two hours install per side. I purchased all new standard bolts with never fail bushings along with all new straps. I was told I could replace the brass bushings with never fail bushings when I purchased the set. When I received equa-flex equalizers I noticed they all had pressed in brass bushings so I was not able to use the never fail bushings. I had to go down to the local trailer store to to purchase six wet bolts. All in all I am happy I just have six extra bolts and six extra never fail bushings. 445546

I watched the video, compared to other options, and chose this item. Install was fast once lined up. Test drive was great- took my 26' travel trailer over a pretty bad road. Road effect was less, my pickup jumped around less, and my neck is thankful. This equalizer replaced a Dexter Axle 13-142. Although the measurements are not exact as the original, the fit was fine and gives me approx one extra inch of tire to fender clearance. 570428

Great product. My camper came with these when I purchased it new in 2012. I had a leaf spring break on our last trip and decided to replace the equalizers while replacing the springs. They do a great job with absorbing shock from rough roads which improves handling and track of the camper. I recommend this product and I recommend etrailer.com. Prices and selection are good and the fast, free shipping is definitely a huge plus. Attached are photos of the installation which include pics of the old ones that I replaced. 573531

They work as described............ Planned on installing "Never Fail Bushing" in place of the Bronze factory installed ones...............NOT POSSIBLE. The inside diameter of the bushing hole is undersized and not 11/16"............ Kind of disappointing. What do I do later when the Bronze bushings wear out??? Buy another set of equalizers?? 450796


Comments

Leroy,I contacted Lippert and it is possible to change out the integrated bronze bushings for never fail bushings on the sides of the equalizer. The original bushings can be switched out for 11/16 bushings.

I replaced the stock "Dexter" equalizers with these as part of a project to replace the springs to correct axle tracking problem. They do a great job with road vibration, the items I left on a counter were still there. They would have been on the floor before the replacement. 420656

I bought these to replace the original worn out Equa-flex kit on my triple axle toyhauler. My camper is a 2013 model, and all the rubber components were cracked and had lost quite a bit of their elasticity. This kit was a perfect bolt in replacement. Though the kit arrived with some cosmetic blemishes, the quality was better than I expected. The equalizers come with bronze bushings in all but two of the spring eye positions. The bushing were tight, and my new bolts needed to be tapped in. The equalizers fit perfectly with all my suspension components, and all dimensions were correct. I will be paying more attention to my suspension from now on, and hope to get many more years out of these new equalizers. 302117

First I must say what great customer service I received when I called to order the Equa-flex for my trailer. I talked to Rose in sales and she helped me pick the right suspension enhancements for my trailer. I installed the Equa-flex 5-6k and the Dexter heavy duty shackle kit on my 30' 2016 Forrest River Wildwood. The kit and the instructions were easy to read and understand. The kit is definitely an upgrade over the stock suspension, just look as t the pictures I provided. The trailer rides smooth and handles great. I will be installing the Equa-flex kit and shackle kik it on my Dads trailer this year. Thanks Etrailer for your great products and customer service. 558671

I upgraded to the 6-8000 lbs. Equlizers on my 2014 Redwood fifth wheel . I have had 2 leaf springs break within 2 months . I did some reasearch and found an issue with the shackle bushings failing so I also went with the heavy duty wet bolt kit. Included is a video of the equlizers doing their job. 516452

Had to replace original tandem axle equalizers due to failure on my 26 foot fifth wheel trailer. (See picture of broken equalizer below) This was an exact replacement with kit LC 1594011, and never fail tandem axle suspension kit LC 81285. This is a very straight forward easy installation, the hardest part of which is jacking and blocking the trailer up to get the weight off the axles. Once the tires are off and the trailer is blocked up the axles move fairly easily to expedite installation of the new tandem equalizers. 435269

Great product, great company to deal with. Install was a little challenging but worth it I hope. Took trailer for a test run after install, trailer rode smoother. The only thing i could add would be, if I have 2-1/4” shackle plates I don’t need the 3-1/4” plates, maybe reduce the cost a little. 492572

Looks like a nice product, but I was told that bolts and bushing would be included. The bushings appear to be installed, but there are no bolts leaving me short 6 bolts, 3 per side. Now i will need to order six more bolts or find them locally to finish my project. Those of you buying this product you will need to buy the center hanger bolt and the two shackle mount bolts per side. 433040

The product is amazing; however, the kit didn’t come with the Stover Nuts to put it all together. I’ve had the kit for a year and just installed it last weekend and noticed it came with no nuts.???? And trying to find 7/16 x 20 Stover Nuts is almost impossible...but I did. I would recommend a little better quality control on the items required to be in the box. I no longer need them since I’ve already purchased them from another source. 650407
