Dimensions

Absorbs Road Shock and Reduces Chucking

Upgrade your trailer's suspension for a smoother ride with these cushioned Road Armor equalizers. The rubber cores effectively absorb vibrations and bumps and reduce the back-and-forth movement known as chucking. Unlike standard cast equalizers, the Road Armor rubber rotation stops 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.


360 Degrees of Protection

The Road Armor equalizers have double the protection of most aftermarket equalizers, each with 4 rotation stops for 360-degree protection. When your trailer's leaf spring encounters road shock, it will kick the Road Armor's lead side vertically up to 1-1/2", while the trailing side will push down up to 1-1/2". The opposite reaction happens on the other side of the equalizer when the trailing axle incurs the same road vibration, allowing for 6" of total travel capability per equalizer.


Easy Installation

Lippert Equalizer

It's easy to upgrade your trailer's standard suspension with a set of cushioned Road Armor equalizers. You will need 10 standard suspension bolts and 8 shackle straps (each sold separately) to incorporate the equalizers into your trailer's suspension system. Two of the suspension bolts will be used to suspend the equalizers from the center hangers, and the other 8 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).

First I have got to give the people at etrailer a thank you for the customer service they provided! I have only made one trip since I installed the Road Armor kit. On that trip I found out that the axles had negative camber and both were toed out. So in all fairness I can not review the LC 696740. Have since had the axles aligned. The next trip will tell. 821659

Finally quit raining long enough to install these myself. Great instructions. Simple install for anyone with basic mechanical knowledge. Minimum amount of tools needed. And WOW what a difference in the ride and towing. I could tell on the first trip that the 5th wheel I was towing, was not receiving the road shock it had before. The factory ones weren't bad, but these are far better. And a great time to check the brake's and repack the bearings. A "ounce of prevention" ya know! 797802

Highly recommend adding these on your camper. We added them to our Grand Design 2400 BH which was a night and day difference in ride quality. This eliminated a lot of the porpoising, chucking and side to side roll that you sometimes get. I was amazed how much smoother of a ride pulling the camper is now. Running the Road Armor Equalizers now in combination with the Roadmaster shocks. 787054

The road armor and new springs made for a softer ride on the trailer. If your trailer has 3 holes on equalizer mounting bracket you can only use the highest or bottom hole. I have only used for 4000 miles but you can feel the difference from the cab of the truck. Sure hope they hold up down the road, as the roads are getting worse. Would recommend these to heavy trailers, mine is 14000#. 779631

This product has made the trailer ride like there is cushions to take away road slap . Our 30' toyhauler had given a lot of road jarring from bad Road crack 's . My wife is extremely happy for the less jarring for her neck. The ride is much improved also. Great product to have on all trailers. Remember Happy Wife Happy Life!! 774770

  • Could Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 Fit 2019 Keystone Cougar 30RLS
    The distance between the horizontal mounting holes on the Lippert Road Armor Equalizers part # LC696740 is 6 inches. You'd want to measure the distance on the equalizers you currently have as we don't have that figure and you'd be able to compare and know. If the dimension you get is right at 6 inches you'd be good. If not, email me back what you find and I'll give you the best option you'd have.

  • Recommended Wet Bolt Kit for Lippert Road Armor Equalizers
    You'll need to use wet bolts that have a 9/16" diameter for the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740. I highly recommend the Never Fail Tandem Axle Suspension Upgrade Hardware Kit # LC281285 because it comes with Never Fail bushings that don't require lubrication and they last longer than the standard bronze bushings do. This kit also comes with 3-1/2" long and 4-3/8" long shackle straps so you just need to choose which length suits your application best. Please note that...

  • Will Road Armor Equalizer Replace Equa Flex Equalizer # LC279687
    The Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 that you referenced is close enough dimensionally to the Equa-Flex equalizer # LC279687 that you have now so it will fit and work well. Bushing come with this already pre installed, for bolts you'd want the part # TRFA73Z916DLNZ but for shackles you'd need to let me know what length you have currently. I attached a link to a page that has all of the shackles we carry as well.

    The Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit - Tandem Axle - Qty 2 # LC696740 are for 3,500 lb all the way to 8,000 lb axles. Because axle spacing can be different I recommend the Never Fail Tandem Axle Suspension Upgrade Hardware Kit for Double Eye Springs # LC281285 which comes with different shackle strap lengths and the Never Fail Bushings so no maintenance is required. I've attached an article on trailer suspension to further assist as well as some videos to help.

  • Will Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit Help With Up and Down Movement Of Trailer
    It sounds like you have a lot of up and down movement in your travel trailer while going down the road. The Road Armor Shock Absorbing Kit part # LC696740 is a better option then the MORyde kit to help eliminate some of that movement because it provides about 3" more of suspension travel capability for a smoother ride. The cushioned Road Armor system will absorb the road shock to help eliminate the up and down movement you are experiencing. I have attached the dimensions of the equalizers...

  • Switching from Standard Equalizers to Road Armor Kit and Recommended Shackles + Bushings
    You will be able to use the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizers since they're fairly close in dimensions (6" wide x 3-1/4"). I recommend pairing these equalizers with the Never Fail Tandem Axle Suspension Kit # LC281285 which comes with 2 different lengths of shackle straps (3-1/2" and 4-3/8" bolt hole to bolt hole) to accommodate for the change in height, new bolts and bushings for your springs. One of the great things about this kit, aside from it being high quality and durable, is...

The 7-1/2" Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers # LC279688 would be your most direct replacement for the Dexter 13-122 equalizer however.

  • Could Lippert Road Armor # LC696740 Fit 2018 Arctic Wolf 305ML6
    The Lippert Road Armor part # LC696740 that you referenced is most likely the correct kit you'd need but you'd want to measure the distance between the holes of your current equalizers. If they are 6 inches than this kit would fit. This is a very common dimension so it should be what you'd have. You also would be able to reuse the center hangers as well.

  • Switching from Standard Equalizer to Cushioned 7-1/2" Equalizer
    I have a solution for you, but I can't say that using longer shackles with a shorter equalizer is going to be the best solution since it may change the frame clearance from your trailer. Instead of going with the Road Armor 6" Equalizers # LC696740 and longer straps, you can get the same cushioned equalizer that fits your current setup using the Lippert Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers # # LC279688 which are 7-1/2" long and will match what you're currently using.

  • Height of Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer
    The Road Armor equalizers, part # LC696740, are 3-1/4 inches tall from the center of the top bolt hole to the line where the center of the lower bolt holes straight down. They're shorter than your 13-10 equalizers but they're the closest cushioned replacements we carry. They'll lower your suspension by about an inch but they'll fit. I reached out to MORryde and according to them their X-Factor cross-members work with cushioned equalizers like the Road Armor.

  • Can the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit Replace the Triangular Equalizer TREQ310
    You can substitute the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 for your Triangular Equalizer # TREQ310 but you will need to get shorter shackle straps as well. They both have the same side to side measurement for the wet bolt holes but the Road Armor is about 3/4" shorter than your current equalizer. Attached is a link to our list of shackle straps that you can filter through to find what you need.

  • Do I Use Center Correct Track Center Hanger To Install Road Armor Equalizer
    I contacted Lippert and the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit part # LC696740 is compatible with the Lippert Components Correct Track Trailer Alignment and 2" Lift Kit part # LC87120. If you use the road armor equalizers you will not need the center track bracket. However, I do recommend to take a look at the holes of the equalizer to make sure it matches your existing equalizer.

  • Distance from Top Mounting Bolt of Road Armor Equalizer # LC696740 to Horizontal Ones

  • What is Advantage of Never Fail Tandem Axle Suspension Upgrade Hardware Kit Over Other Options
    The Never Fail upgrade kits like the # LC281285 have two really distinct advantages. One of them is what you mentioned and is that they don't require greasing or any maintenance. The other is that they last about twice as long as any other heavy duty style of bushing kit. You'll get easily twice the mileage from this kit over anything else.

  • Determining if Lippert Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit Will Fit 2007 Coachmen Trailer
    To determine if the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 will work on your 2007 Coachmen Travel Trailer you will need to take a couple measurements on your existing equalizers. These upgraded units have a width of 6 inches from hole to hole, on center, and a height of 3-1/4 inches from the two bottom holes to the top hole. If your current equalizers match these specs then they will work perfectly to not only replace what you have but to provide a much improved ride as...

  • Does Road Armor Equalizer Kit Require Different Size Shackle Straps
    The Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 will work to replace the Triangular Equalizer # TREQ310 and you are absolutely correct that the Road Armor equalizer will need shorter shackle straps than yours which are 2-1/4". The shortest available are the 2" Long Shackle Strap # TRSL200. I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well.

  • Are Longer Shackle Straps Needed with Lippert Road Armor Equalizer
    You'll be find with the same shackle length you're currently using, as the height difference is only a 1/4 inch. At the time you replace the equalizer, I'd also recommend replacing the shackle links, as they can see a lot of wear. The # TRSL225 2-1/4 inch shackle links would work great for you.

    The Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit part # LC696740 are a bit too wide for your existing equalizers so if you wanted to use them you would need to cut and weld the front/rear leaf spring hangers further away from the axle, about 1/2" for each side. The Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers part # LC279687 are a better match for your trailer.

This kit is an exact replacement and has the same dimensions of the equalizer it replaces.

    Yes, the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 can replace the equalizer part # TREQ356 that you have since the horizontal bolt holes are the correct distance apart. Since the vertical bolt hole distance is an inch taller though you would want to go with longer shackle straps. This will allow your leaf spring to sit level.

This would be close enough to fit and work well and will provide you with a noticeably smoother ride quality so it will be a great option.

The only thing you need to confirm on your end is that your current equalizers have the same dimensions for the wet bolts that the Road Armor does, otherwise the shackles may not be quite long enough.
