Video Transcript for Lippert Tandem Axle Road Armor Wet Bolts and Shackles Kit Review

Jake Hi there, tandem-axle trailer owners. Today we're gonna be taking a look at Lippert's wet bolt kit for the Road Armor Equalizer. Before we install our equalizers, we're just gonna take it out on the test course and see how it operates. And there you can see it going over. It's a pretty noisy setup, I mean, there are a lotta squeaks and stuff. It could be some from his weight distribution system that he has installed, but we'll find out after we install our new equalizers.

Now we're gonna go back out on the test course with our new equalizers installed. Here you can see 'em in action, and right away I can notice that a lot of the squeaks and noises that we had before are now gone. We're still gettin' a couple of pops from the weight distribution system that's installed, but it is significantly quieter than what it was before. The wet bolt kit here is designed to work with Lippert's Road Armor. It does have a thicker shackle, so they are heavy duty shackles, so you're gonna get an upgrade there, it's gonna outlast your factory setup.

But they're also specifically designed to work with the Road Armor. 'Cause the Road Armor will work with trailer setups, with axles between 3,500 and 8,000 pounds, so they actually fit quite a large amount of trailers. But the dimensions are gonna be a little bit different. You can see that our Lippert one, or the Road Armor there, is a little bit closer together, the distance there. And then the distance from the hanger down, it's a little bit lower than what the factory one is here.

So to compensate for those different dimensions, the shackle links here are a little bit longer than what you would have on your factory setup to compensate for that. That'll give you a similar ride type and quality of what you had before, but you're gonna get that upgraded Road Armor dampening along with heavier-duty components. And since it's a wet bolt kit, you'll be able to grease all of your bushings. Now the Road Armor does have bronze bushings pre-installed in it, so you'll be able to grease those right away. Now, the wet bolt kit does not come with additional bushings, though.

It does come with enough wet bolts to be able to install it into your spring eyes on each side, but it doesn't come with the bushing. So if you're wanting to upgrade your spring eyes with the wet bolts, I would highly recommend pressing out your old bushings and putting in new bronze bushings. And you can buy packs of those here at etrailer to get new bushings. They are gonna be a 9/16 inner diameter with an 11/16 outer diameter by 1 3/4 for the size of bushing that you'll wanna use with this. I highly recommend it, because if you we're to just put your wet bolts in with the regular plastic bushings there, it would be okay as long as you don't grease the bushing, but if you we're to lubricate a plastic bushing like this, the grease can actually deteriorate these plastic bushings and cause them to prematurely fail. If you go with a bronze bushing however though, a greased bronze bushing that is continually maintained and greased when you use your trailer will outlast your plastic bushings here significantly. We can already see that the factory one on here, and this is a 2022 trailer, and it's still 2022. So we haven't even made it through the year yet and these plastic ones are already starting to fail. If your bushings completely fail, you can oblong the openings where your bushings install, and if that opening oblongs, you really can't do anything about it. You gotta replace the component. 'Cause if you put a new bushing in then and there's gaps on there, that new bushing's gonna fail pretty fast. So to prevent you from having to replace your equalizer, or a leak springs because of the bushings that have failed and oblonged the holes, I would recommend going with these bronze kits and grease them. And that completes our look at Lippert's wet bolt kit for the Road Armor Equalizer..

Bolts are great quality and nicely made. I hope they hold up much better than stock. It would serve etrailer well in the future to wrap each bolt in bubble wrap. A few in the box arrived with messed up threads. So yeah, that was a bummer. I will have to try and fix the threads if at all possible. Rather than that It will be fun to install it all next month.

I am sorry that they arrived like that. Let me see if there is anything our customer service department can do to get this fixed for you.



by:

The wet bolts and shackles have been on for a year and are working well. I have learned that you have to take the pressure off the springs/shackles by extending the stabilizers or jacking up the frame of the RV to enable the wet bolts to take grease. I didn't do this and the shackles bushings wore out. I decided to go ahead and replace the old bushings and shackles, although I probably could have gotten by without replacing the old shackles and wet bolts.



by:

Installed these with the Dexter Bronze Bushings and Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizers. No more clanking and banging from the trailer going down the road and especially making tight turns.



by:

Excellent product



by:

Indeed the absolute best and most important part of my trailer upgrade and improvement I’ve made. These wet bolts along with the other components have made my trailer more durable and much quieter going down the road. It’s a must for every trailer in my book.



by:

So far after a year and several thousand miles, it is doing great with one exception. One zerk fitting is very hard to grease. Meaning it takes a lot of pressure on the grease gun handle. I think what I need to do is reorient the bolt 90 degrees so there is no pressure on the flow of grease through the bolt. I will be doing this in the next month or so. Other than that one issue (no fault of the product) it’s doing great.

Best kit for the Road Armor installatio n.



by:

Great heavy duty product. This gives me peace of mind that I can safely travel with my family.



by:

These parts worked perfectly for my 2022 Keystone Cougar 22MLS!



by:

Haven't installed yet, hopefully in the next 6 weeks when it warms up. I was disappointed that there were no bronze bushings included, as the MORyde kit. So now I need to find 4 bronze bushings for the outer spring ends. Always something. I am so tired of incomplete items and things that don't work. This is the 2nd eTrailer review in 5 minutes that was disappointing. Apparently a sign of the times.

I checked with the manufacturer and the bushings are not included with this kit. We do offer a bushing set of 4 that have an inner diameter of 0.57 inches, an outer diameter of 0.69 inches, and an overall length of 1.74 inches. It is part # K71-291-00.



by:

Installed the kit and the kit fit perfectly as described. I would highly recommend this product. Totally satisfied. Thank You



by:

Nice sturdy equipment. Lippert shipping prep fails again with how this is shipped. All equipment in a quart size zip lock baggy. The bolts that were placed have to be pounded out to be positioned correctly for the grease port. The zirc fittings are not consistent with the set depth of their placement.

Customer Service will reach out to you.



by:

Package was awesome and fit perfect



by:

these shackle are exactly what they say they are. This will make changing my springs a lot easier.



by:

Well, everything arrived and just in time. Shipping was delayed as it said it would arrive early, but it ended up arriving based upon the original date. All the parts and pieces were there and now time will tell on if it serves its purpose. I do know I will feel better driving on national forest roads with this vs the OEM suspension.



by:

Finish and thickness of the materials is way heavy duty. Exactly what I was looking for and the customer service rep for ordering help was perfect. Just need better weather to install!



by:

Had a bad experience ordering online last time (my fault). This time I called talked to Roger told him what I was looking for gave him some information he hooked me up with the right parts and got them right out to me. Awesome service!



by:

Very heavy duty kit. Shipping was fast.



by:

I was happy to find the parts I needed and get them long before the appointment for installation....
