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.


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. You will need 18 wet suspension bolts and 12 shackle straps (both 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).

Installed great good product, about 7 month later I realized I got the wrong ones.

Pay attention to axle spacing when ordering.y fault not a fault of themprdict



by:

The order was to replace OEM parts. There was no questioning whether or not the parts were the right fit for my trailer. I looked at other options but felt it was in my best interest to stick with the OEM parts. Still in the search to change out my suspension completely.



by:

Have not been able to put on Camper yet, but the service and delivery was exceptional. Thanks to Brittany.

Customer service has been fantastic A+ at finding what would best serve my needs and application.

With new shocks big big difference

These equalizers look well built. I will be installing them in a month. My old ones had welds broken. So far very happy. Price was very good. Will take pictures when installed

Product shipped super fast and got it sooner than expected. It just delivered a couple hours ago and I haven't installed it yet but I'm planning on doing that tomorrow. Thank you so much guys, this is awesome.

Looked at another brand, decided I liked the Lippert better. Although it was $[XX] more than where I started I was willing to pay the extra due to it having a variable width and it being heavier built than the product I was looking at. Paula was excellent in assisting me with this product, (4) springs, u bolts, wet blots / shackle kit.



by:

These seem to be working ok but do not appear to be designed for use with the HD upgraded Moryde greaseable shackle kit that I purchased with them . You can see in the photos that they rub and bind



by:

I needed to replace everything (suspension) on my 45 year old trailer. The equa-flex equalizers appeared to be an upgrade over standard type equalizers. It seems to tow better and smoother. Replaced leaf springs and all associated shackles with greasable shackle bolts. The MORyde shackle kit did not work for my application - the shackles were too long, went back standard length shackles for the correct angles on the equalizers. My trailer weighs around 6500 lbs., we’ll see how the equa-flex units hold up. Overall, I would recommend this product. etrailer was great to deal with.



by:

This was a great upgrade. I installed myself, the only issue I had was getting them lined up with the leaf spring. However, I got it figured out and the opposite side went much faster. I think the trailer pulls much better and you don't get the bounce after hitting a bump, RR tracks etc.. Glad that I made this upgrade. If I had one negative, it would be the packaging, the powder coat on one was scratched through.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

These will be going back. Lippert did a terrible job prepping these for shipment. They showed up with evidence of metallic grinding, dropping, and less than a quality piece. The bubble wrap that was around the pieces wouldn’t protect a Christmas ornament from the dollar tree. Definitely not going on my trailer like this.



by:

This is the 2nd time I have bought new equalizers. The first replacement set were abused by leaf springs that were too long. This caused a binding of the equalizers as the long springs pushed to the center and tore up the rubber bushings on the equalizers. Before a long road trip I had custom leaf springs fabricated and installed new equalizers. All is well now.



by:

Very easy install—removed wheel on rear axle and plenary of area to work. Reused hangers and bolts. Installed in about 90 minutes. Looking forward to seeing the difference in handling



by:

Easy to install, soft brake action eliminated the pivot flip. Highly recommend them. Buy the grease zert bolts and zero issues for as long as you own the trailer



by:

Received the equalizer a little after lunch today. Had the passenger side of the trailer done in about an hour after some choice words getting the old one off. Putting this in was simple, and should make a good ride and stop wearing my tire out.



by:

I was able to install these myself. Was super easy once I got my trailer jacked up! I replaced the equalizers and the leaf springs at the same time. We are getting ready to take it out next week! They performed great last year and I felt the trailer rode better with these on!



by:

Well, between your "Tips for a great review" and "Not appropriate for a review" I'd say you don't really want an honest review. My experience though, box had a large hole, glad there was no loose parts. Of real concern though (safety/warranty) was the fact that the pivot points were assembled with no grease at all, totally dry. Glad I checked.

  • Possible Suspension Equalizer Upgrade Kit for 2020 Keystone Premier 23 RB
    The widest upgraded equalizer we have for trailer suspension is the Equa-Flex part # LC314336 which is 14-5/8 inches from bolt center to bolt center. This is a cushioned kit that is designed for use with 5,200 lb trailer axles which most likely would work well for you but I'd I verify you have 5,200 lb trailer axles. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Can Equa-Flex Equalizers For Triple Axle Replace Rubber
    I checked with Lippert and the rubber cushioning cannot be replaced individually. If that is worn to the point of being ineffective, you will need to replace them with the Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers - Double Eye Springs - Triple Axle - 5K to 8K # LC279689.

  • Could Having Different Axle Spacings on Trailer Contribute to Leaf Spring Failure
    Uneven axle spacing isn't a great sign and most likely is related to the issue. If the leaf springs are the same length and the hangers are spaced differently that would not be the safest setup though and it would be wise to move the hangers to allow you to have even axle spacings. To prevent leaf springs from braking best option is to make sure you aren't overloading the springs that are installed and that all of the suspension components are installed properly in the correct locations....

  • EquaFlex Equalizer Kit that Fits 2017 Keystone Raptor 412
    Leaf spring length also plays a factor in axle spacing which may be why yours don't seem to match what you've found but since you have a triple axle trailer with 7k axles the correct kit you'd need is the part # LC279689.

  • Picking Between Equaflex Models # LC279689 # LC281314 For 2007 Cyclone 3210 with 5.2k Axles
    Your best option is to measure the horizontal distance between the holes of the equalizers you have on the trailer currently and pick the EquaFlex that matches that dimension. The part # LC281314 has this distance at 5-1/2 inches (see first picture), and the # LC279689 has this distance at 7-1/2 inches (second picture). Going with the kit that has the closest dimensions to what you currently have will be your best option.

  • How To Determine What The Correct Equa-Flex System Is For A 2017 Keystone Raptor 5W
    In order to determine which Equa-Flex system is going to be the correct replacement for you, you will just have to measure your current one and choose the system that matches. For example, the Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers - Double Eye Springs # LC279687 will work with tandem-axles trailers with double eye springs that have an axle capacity range of 3,000 lbs - 6,000 lbs.

  • How Do You Know When Equa-Flex Equalizers On Triple Axle Trailer Should Be Replaced?
    I reached out to my contact at Lippert and the Equa-Flex equalizers you have on your Grand Design Momentum Triple Axle Trailer do not have a mileage rating, but instead just get replaced when they are worn. I would take a close look at the equalizers and the shackles looking for any fatigue cracks and are abnormal wear or deterioration of the rubber located at the bottom of the equalizers. If you see wear then it is time to go ahead and replace the equalizers. If your trailer has 3000lb-6000lb...

  • Lippert Rubber Equalizer Recommendation for Triple Axle Trailer
    Lippert only makes the Road Armor for a tandem axle trailer so for your triple axle you'll want to check out the Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers # LC279689 instead which is a similar system from Lippert as well. You'll want to check the dimensions of the equalizers against what you currently have to make sure this is compatible though (see attached). If you have something else please let me know your dimensions and I'd be more than happy to help you find the correct upgrade kit!

  • Determining Correct Replacement Equalizers For Triple Axle Trailer
    There are trailers that leave the factory with different axle spacing, so I wouldn't worry too much about the difference. To determine the correct replacement equalizer I recommend measuring the distance between the horizontal mounting holes in the equalizers on the other side of the trailer to find the correct size. For example the Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers w/ Never Fail Bushings - Double Eye Springs - Triple Axle - 3K to 6K # LC281314 measure 5-1/2" between the horizonal mounting...

  • Could Roadmaster Comfort Ride System Fix Rear Axle Moving Closer to Middle Axle
    That's an interesting problem you are having but there has to be a suspension component that is damaged, bent or flexed that is allowing the axle to move forward. I would look at the hangers to see if they maybe are bent or check to see if the axle is still attached to the leaf spring correctly. It almost sounds like the the axle has slid forward on the leaf spring which shouldn't be happening. There should be a pin on the leaf spring pack that holds it to the the u-bolt plate so this doesn't...

  • Which Equa Flex Kit is Designed for a Triple Axle Trailer with 7k Axles
    The issue is that when you add an axle to a trailer you have to move all of the axles to allow the axles to sit in the correct spot. Otherwise you'll have ride issues. So your current center hanger location for your tandem setup would become the location for the middle axle center. The Equa Flex kit you'd need for a 7k, triple axle setup is the part # LC279689. I wouldn't recommend having Equa Flex equalizers for the front two axles but not the third one.
