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).

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit. This is designed for a tandem axle trailer, and it comes in a quantity of two. Here you can see our two Road Armor equalizers. These are going to be a really great component to enhance the overall ride of your trailer. It's going to have these heavy-duty rubber cores to minimize that chucking, which is the back-and-forth movement in your trailer. That's going to help to absorb a lot of road shock as you're going down the road or the highway or wherever you are with hauling your trailer.This is going to have six inches of total travel capacity for 360-degree protection.

These are just going to be a really nice, stiff rubber that's going to cushion that road shock. It's going to absorb a lot of that initial jarring that you're . or constant jarring that you get with those. It's going to be made of a durable, sturdy steel construction with a nice corrosion-resistant yellow powder coat finish. You can see pretty much the entire surface of that equalizer is powder coated.

The black portion here is going to be our rubber stoppers.It's already going to have the bushings inserted into those bolt holes so that's one less thing you have to worry about there. They are going to be a bronze bushing. That's pretty typical with most of your equalizer systems. Now, the center hangers to suspend these are sold separately. You can find a lot of options here at to pick up those center hangers.

You can also find replacement bolts, shackle links, other components that you would need to replace any of your trailer components here at as well.Now, again, these are going to work with tandem axle trailers with double double-eye leaf springs. These are going to work for axle capacities 3,500 pounds up to 8,000 pounds. Again, these are going to be a really nice upgrade to your trailer to reduce a lot of that jarring movement that you typically get, especially when you're hauling heavy loads in your trailer.As far as the dimensions on this, the overall length from top to bottom of our equalizer, it's going to be about eight inches. The width from outside to outside is going to be just about eight inches as well. The distance between the bolt holes from the center to the side, that's going to be about four and a half inches, center on center.

Between the two side attachment points, that's going to be just about six inches. That's going to do it for our look at the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit for a tandem axle trailer.
