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).

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


Comments
I do have two recommendations for you. The first would be to make sure that the bolts are not over tightened. The locknuts should only be tight enough to limit as much movement as possible without binding anything up. The second recommendation is that Lippert makes that can be used with the Equa-Flex system. It is part # LC64FR

. The shackle straps are less thick at 0.212 thickness however they are longer at 3 and one quarter inches.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


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.

Customer Service will reach out to you.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Have only put about 3500 miles on these replacement equalizers but they appear to be getting the job done. I'm a little surprised at how much the rubber bushing portion is already compressed but will see long term. The order from etrailer was handled correctly and timely. Happy with the company.

The Equa-Flex equalizers are a nice upgrade from original cast rigid equalizers that came on our Forest River trailer. They help absorb road bumps into the chassis and interior of our travel trailer.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


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.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


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.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


The equalizer and shackle kit were excellent quality and easy to install on 5th wheel. Everyone at etrailer was very helpful and concerned about my receiving parts on time. We were on the road at the time and thanks to their efforts we were back on the road in 3 days. By the way, I installed these myself at the campground!

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


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.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


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.

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

I’m pleased as the Equalizers perform as advertised. Only minor issue is cracks in the yellow coating along the bottom edges of the equalizers that are not effecting performance.

Equa-Flex cushioned equalizers are a must have to replace the stock equalizer on your trailer. Parts are well made and it is an easy swap. Just finished the install in less than 2 hrs., can't wait to hook up and hit the road and try them out. Will update after we have pulled the trailer down the road.

2nd time using etrailer, both times have been great. I shop for parts, best quality at the best price, etrailer has competitive prices, parts are quality and parts arrive on time or a day early.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


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.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


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.

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

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Night and day difference in towing, smooths out the bumps and makes the ride great. Installation wasn't bad, did it myself with a helper, took 4 hours total along with replacing all the bolts with wet bolts.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


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.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


Hello, product a little damaged by transport, lack of flaking paint, but for the eeste seems wn good condition. on the other hand for this article I was charged an amount of $xxx.xx including transport tax and exchange rate. Why did you collect an additional amount of $xx.xx from my paypal that I do not have authorities?


Comments
We have not received this additional amount. I see that you had this order shipped internationally, when it comes to shipping international orders, we include any additional shipping costs in your initial purchase. However, this does not prevent the stateprovinceterritory that you are having the item shipped to from taking any additional charges. All duties, taxes or brokerage fees to a non-US address are your responsibility. I would suggest contacting PayPal to confirm where that additional charge was made from. For the paint chips, we recommend covering any exposed metal with a clear or yellow colored Rust-oleum type of paint.
-- Etrailer Expert Katrina B - 05/04/2022
I have also received the paint color code for the equalizers. If your product is damaged in transport, we do recommend painting it with a rust-oleum type of paint, RAL color which is code # 1021, in order to prevent rust in the future.

Review from a similar Equa-Flex in Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


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.


Comments
1 year after installing and roughly 18,000 miles everything is working great. No sign of wear. Great product. Definitely recommend this upgrade for those that have the stock equalizers.

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!

Still going strong. We are considering more suspension enhancement in the future. etrailer will be our primary resource.
