Video Transcript for Lippert Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers Review and Installation

Connor: Hey guys, Connor here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Equa-Flex cushioned equalizers for our tandem and triple axle trailers. Our Equa-Flex equalizers here are offered in a couple of different options. We have solutions for tandem axle trailers, which we have now. We also have solutions for triple axle trailers. Now in order to determine which is correct, we obviously need to know how many axles we have, but we also need to determine this based on our axle spread.

So there's two common axle spreads here for tandem axle trailers. There's going to be 33 inch axle spread and a 35 inch axle spread. So basically what we need to do is immediately get our tape measure out and we need to roughly measure the distance between the two center of our axles.So this particular trailer has a 35 inch axle spread. So we're going to be using these Equa-Flex equalizers here for that spread. But there is also an option for a 33 inch axle spread as well.

So just to show you now, what an upgrade here these Equa-Flex equalizers are. Again, this is a stock cast equalizer that we took off the trailer. There's no cushioning involved and it is a nice durable piece of metal, but again, it doesn't offer much stabilization and it's going to have a rough ride. Whereas our cushioned equalizers which we see here have the built-in cushioning. We also have this nice powder-coated exterior, which is going to help from rust.

And just to give you another option here, Dexter also makes a similar cushioned equalizer system, which we do have available. The design is pretty much the same. It has a cushion in here to help obviously reduce suspension wear as well as improve the ride quality.But some of the big differences, the Dexter equalizers has theseinaudible 00:01:41 fittings up top for easy maintenance. And it also comes with a little bit more. It comes with shackle straps, and eyebolts all ready for you.

So it just sort of depends on what you're looking for. If you want to pick out your own shackle straps and eyebolts, we'd go with the equalizer. Or if we want just an all inclusive kit, we might want to take a look at this Dexter equalizer here. Just to give you a little bit more insight on how well these cushioned equalizers perform. We went ahead and took our trailer out at the test course we have at Etrailer, we took the trailer out with these stock equalizers, which you're going to see in the footage. And we also took the trailer out with our new Equa-Flex equalizers, as well as our Dexter Easy Flex equalizers. Just to show you a difference in the ride quality of the trailer with the cushioned equalizers installed.Now, we're definitely not going to feel the trailer back there as much with the cushioned equalizers. And again, just touching on it's going to reduce our suspension wear and it's also going to improve the ride quality of our trailer, as well as what we feel in the tow vehicle. So in regards to installation, our equalizers here are definitely going to be something you can do yourself. It's not going to be real, real hard. However, it is going to take some time. So you do need to allot yourself an adequate amount of time in order to complete this installation. Now we're not going to need any special tools required. The only thing you might not have is a torque wrench. We could pick this up at a local hardware store or local auto parts store. Usually they let you rent this tool for free. Now again, we're probably going to need some jack stands as well as a jack. But aside from that, some common hand tools are going to be to allow you to install an equalizer by yourself. It's definitely something you can do at home in your driveway so long as you have the jacks and hand tools. And that's going to do it for our Equa-Flex cushioned equalizers for our tandem and triple axle trailers.

Direct replacement for existing Equa Flex suspension component. The original didn’t last long (5000 miles) but a replacement with the greasable pivots and replacement to beefier stock linkages should help. Time will tell. Installation easy enough - did it at the RV park with some wood blocks, 8 ton jack and hand tools. Not an excellent review because I’m a bit disappointed the original didn’t last long.
