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

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.

Installed in a Tri-axel Raptor. Great product, awesome ride when I was done. Thanks for a great product at the right price



by:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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.



by:

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.



by:

Great product. Made a big difference from OEM. Definitely recommend them.



by:

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



by:

Product is good. When I received the initial order I took my camper plus the package to the service center after they had taken axle's off and then starting putting the equalizers on we discovered that we were missing one grease bolt,4 shackle links and 10 nuts. I tried to get it overnighted but no one had a good answer as to why it couldn't be done. So my camper took up space sitting on blocks an extra 5 days that service center need. I just hope they don't bill anything extra.



by:

One of my packages was delivered, however one package which is required to install the other package is apparently lost, as there have been no updates for several days. I will give it a few more days and then maybe call the usps.



by:

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.



by:

The operator was very helpful getting me the correct Equalizers. They help the trailer ride much smoother.



by:

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