Dimensions

Absorbs Road Shock and Reduces Chucking

Upgrade your trailer's suspension for a smoother ride with these cushioned Road Armor equalizers. The rubber cores effectively absorb vibrations and bumps and reduce the back-and-forth movement known as chucking. Unlike standard cast equalizers, the Road Armor rubber rotation stops 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.


360 Degrees of Protection

The Road Armor equalizers have double the protection of most aftermarket equalizers, each with 4 rotation stops for 360-degree protection. When your trailer's leaf spring encounters road shock, it will kick the Road Armor's lead side vertically up to 1-1/2", while the trailing side will push down up to 1-1/2". The opposite reaction happens on the other side of the equalizer when the trailing axle incurs the same road vibration, allowing for 6" of total travel capability per equalizer.


Easy Installation

Lippert Equalizer

It's easy to upgrade your trailer's standard suspension with a set of cushioned Road Armor equalizers. You will need 10 standard suspension bolts and 8 shackle straps (each sold separately) to incorporate the equalizers into your trailer's suspension system. Two of the suspension bolts will be used to suspend the equalizers from the center hangers, and the other 8 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).

Finally quit raining long enough to install these myself. Great instructions. Simple install for anyone with basic mechanical knowledge. Minimum amount of tools needed. And WOW what a difference in the ride and towing. I could tell on the first trip that the 5th wheel I was towing, was not receiving the road shock it had before. The factory ones weren't bad, but these are far better. And a great time to check the brake's and repack the bearings. A "ounce of prevention" ya know!


Comments
Just as I expected. It seems that the drawers and doors stay closed now. That tells me that the whole trailer is getting a smoother ride over bumps and potholes.

The minor issue with the packaging falls on Road Armor company etrailer just ship the item as they receive it

The product is very well made and easy to install. Josh and all the techs were very knowledgeable and helpful in getting the necessary shackles needed for the proper fit. My only issue was that the Road Armor label peeled off in about 3 weeks after installation. I don't mind but other RVers asked the name of the product rather than seeing the name on the equalizer itself (I don't know if the glue was old). It makes my travel trailer ride smoother and I feel safer with it on instead of the manufacturer's version. Very happy!!!

I used my trailer in an off highway situation. I enjoy hunting and camping and this helps to smooth out the ride. Very happy with this product.

Love the look and design of the road armor. Hope it works as designed. Beware you also need to order the shackle kit to have reasonable bolts this is not in the description that I could find, belived it came as a complete kit. Ordered bolts and shackles now will install next week when they come in.

Last year 3500 miles and now finishing cross country road trip considering road conditions trailer is holding up great thanks for great product

Huge improvement. No need to hesitate. If you’re looking at this option just buy it. Lowest cost solution out there for the level of improvement it provides. For this install I should have bought the HD shackle kit with wet bolts, I just bought shackles and hardware from the local dealer.

These pups are a little spendy but I think they make a huge difference. Look up my review in the electric brakes section you'll see I rebuilt the entire suspension on my trailer, I'm guessing I should be good to go for a while.

First I have got to give the people at etrailer a thank you for the customer service they provided! I have only made one trip since I installed the Road Armor kit. On that trip I found out that the axles had negative camber and both were toed out. So in all fairness I can not review the LC 696740. Have since had the axles aligned. The next trip will tell.

Received today and installed today as well. Install was simple assuming you have enough floor jacks. My equalizer's arrived with a rusty coat on the top most bolt hole. Nothing more than surface, but when you get a new product and it has rust it doesn't feel the best. Install was about 30 minutes a side (I had a gas line on the one side running the frame, had to remove so took an additional 30 minutes), figure 90 minutes total. Tips: Remember the bolts are friction fit, so spin the nut not the bolt. To remove top bolt on the original equalizer use a large C-clamp and an oversized socket over the head of the bolt and push on the other side of bolt, if you find it is just not separating, keep the c-clamp on and hit the backside of the bolt and itll pop out. I found scissor jacks under the axles worked better than floor jacks given their smaller footprint. Make sure not to ugga dugga the nuts on, torque is only 50ft/lbs. Will update after this weekend on ride, but install was straightforward and simple.

well worth the investment, nobody ever really pays attention to the wear on RV suspension parts like they should. and OEM is quite poor quality.

Highly recommend adding these on your camper. We added them to our Grand Design 2400 BH which was a night and day difference in ride quality. This eliminated a lot of the porpoising, chucking and side to side roll that you sometimes get. I was amazed how much smoother of a ride pulling the camper is now. Running the Road Armor Equalizers now in combination with the Roadmaster shocks.

This product has made the trailer ride like there is cushions to take away road slap . Our 30' toyhauler had given a lot of road jarring from bad Road crack 's . My wife is extremely happy for the less jarring for her neck. The ride is much improved also. Great product to have on all trailers. Remember Happy Wife Happy Life!!
