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).

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.

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


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.

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.

etrailer has delivered again. Great company for your RV parts. Looking forward to next trip to see how Suspension Upgrade works, but took trailer for short 10 mile test pull, & so far I think I'm going to be impressed.

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.

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.

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


I installed them this spring, here are a few pictures. I also installed all new bushings and greasable pins. It was a good thing I replaced these as the center bushing on my old equalizers were broken. The new equilizers are a couple inches taller than the old one, raise my trailer over an inch. This worked well as my new truck is higher than my old one.

Ordering was easy and pain free. Shipping happened fast and the tracking was excellent. The correct parts arrived. It will be a few weeks before the parts are installed so I cannot rate them as to performance but when I do it will not have any bearing on the performance of etrailer.com as they did not make or brand them.

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.

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


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.

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


I watched the video, compared to other options, and chose this item. Install was fast once lined up. Test drive was great- took my 26' travel trailer over a pretty bad road. Road effect was less, my pickup jumped around less, and my neck is thankful. This equalizer replaced a Dexter Axle 13-142. Although the measurements are not exact as the original, the fit was fine and gives me approx one extra inch of tire to fender clearance.


Comments
I still think it is a good product. We did our five weeks through multiple states, still working good. I wish it had been stock when we got the trailer. Whenever I replace my trailer, Ill add this as one of the first tweaks I do to it.

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


I purchased this product to upgrade my suspension on a brand new travel trailer that I was going to pull to Alaska. I had heard that the roads could be a bit rough and hard on trailer suspensions and did not want to break anything because of the relative inflexibility of the stock system. The product was super easy to install, but I ended up using the longer shackle brackets that were in the suspension upgrade I purchased because I could not get the stock length brackets to line up correctly with the leaf springs. This resulted in a lot more suspension travel than I was anticipating, but seemed to do no harm as a result. The trailer pulled wonderfully all the way to Alaska and back, and did not result in any major upheavals within the trailer. The extra flexibility in the suspension did make it a bit trickier to level the trailer however, requiring greater block thickness on the side that needed to be raised. But ultimately this was no big deal. Ultimately I can only imagine how the stock system would have performed, and my imagination suggests that it would have not been a pretty sight inside the trailer.

They work as described............ Planned on installing "Never Fail Bushing" in place of the Bronze factory installed ones...............NOT POSSIBLE. The inside diameter of the bushing hole is undersized and not 11/16"............ Kind of disappointing. What do I do later when the Bronze bushings wear out??? Buy another set of equalizers??


Comments
Leroy,I contacted Lippert and it is possible to change out the integrated bronze bushings for never fail bushings on the sides of the equalizer. The original bushings can be switched out for 11/16 bushings.

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


Worthy upgrade from the stock factory Equalizers, I have a much improved ride it is smother less bounce and jerkiness. Install was straight forward remove the bolts holding the old equalizers on just make sure you have a couple of jacks and jack stands as I needed to tease the springs back into place. Use the jack stands to hold up the trailer and jacks to move the axle and spring into proper alignment with the new equalizers. The fit isn't the same as the old ones I had but more then easy to get the bolt holes to line up. Also don't be surprised the factory bushings are worn out, replaced mine with brass bushings and they can be greased.

I ordered the Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers to replace the stock solid beams that came on my 2017 Jayco Whitehawk. Replacement went flawlessly, Etrailer how to video was extremely helpful and spot-on.
