Video Transcript for TruRyde Trailer Suspension TRSL275 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the shackle strap. It measures 2-3/4" long. This shackle strap connects a double eye spring to a rear hanger on a single-axle trailer or to an equalizer on a multi-axle trailer. It simply allows the appropriate movement to take place. It's made from a durable steel construction with protective finishing to keep it safe from rust and corrosion. Now shackle strap length are measured from the center of one mouth hole to the center of the other.So if we place a ruler on there and take a measurement center on center You can see that's where we get the 2-3/4" measurement from.

The overall length of the unit measuring edge to edge measures 4". Edge to edge you go in this direction is an 1-1/4". Overall thickness is about 3/16" thick. And then the bolt hold diameter for each one is 9/16".That's gonna do it for today's look at the 2-3/4" long shackle strap.

Best on the market. Let’s be honest everyone you will get is cast so it’s generally the same but the finish is spot on.

We had a broken balancer on the right side of our 5th wheel. The right side had one shackle wore through and a couple others not in good shape. We changed out both sides in short order we could ever level the whole works. The parts were exactly what we wanted and came by post sooner than even expected. Very happy with the whole process!!!



- TRSL275

The most difficult part was tightening the nuts to the point that the head of the shackle bolt was flush against the shackles and hangers. Afterward, I loosened the nuts a little. But, I don't know how much to loosen them.

You guys know customer service!!! I don't think I have ever had as good of service at a brick and mortar store. A rep called me within an hour of placing my order. Just to let me know the springs I ordered would not be in stock for a couple weeks. But that he had a pair of springs slightly heavier that were the same size. They arrived in a week. And all the parts came at one time. Thanks..

Excellent product but poor delivery on etrailer's part. Was told out of stock for 1 week. 1 week passed, then the next week passed. I paid for expedited delivery. Delivery took another week after etrailer received the product from the supplier. I was not a happy camper.

  • Availability of Shackle Strap for Trailer Suspension that Has 2-3/4 inches Between Holes
    For a shackle strap that has 2-3/4 inches between the hole centers measured from center to center we have the part # TRSL275 which is exactly what you are looking for.

  • Why Would Fifth Wheel Camper Sit Slightly Lower on One Side than Other
    We don't recommend using different suspension components on one side of the trailer as this will change how the system performs and could potentially cause sway or other unpredictable behaviors on the highway. Most likely the uneven ride is due to your camper having heavier components on the side that sits lower. This isn't uncommon as typically one side of the trailer will have kitchen and plumbing components and the other may have a larger slide out with furniture. So due to that it's...

  • How To Raise a Trailer Without Flipping Axle
    In order to raise a leaf sprung axle without changing the orientation of the axle tube in relation to the leaf spring pack, you really only have one option which is the Lippert Components Tandem Axle Lift Kit part # LC407131 and this provides 2" of lift unlike the axle over/under kits which provide upwards of 3-4" of lift. Please note, for a single axle trailer application I do recommend using shackle straps like part # TRSL275 on the rear leaf spring hanger in order to allow for proper...

  • Correct Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers for Trailer with Tandem 4,400 Lb Axles
    The correct Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers for a trailer with tandem 4,400 lb axles is part # LC279687. However, you might also want to change out the shackle straps with a longer version to make up the difference. I recommend going with the next size up from the list below. For example, if you have 2-1/4" or 2-1/2" long shackle straps then replace these with 2-3/4" long shackle straps part # TRSL275. It doesn't have to be exact in regards to compensating for the shorter equalizers but...

  • Replacement 7-3/4" Equalizer and Hardware for Stock Trailer
    I recommend upgrading to our Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer # 013-144-03. The rubber core minimizes chucking (back-and-forth movement) and helps to absorb road shock. It is a vast improvement over the standard Equalizer # TREQE1. Be sure to check the Bushings # K71-291-00 on your leaf springs as they may need to be replaced as well. These bronze units are designed to last longer than the plastic ones that come with many springs. 2-3/4" Shackle Straps # TRSL275 9/16"x3-3/4" Wet Bolts...

  • Suspension Replacement For Stock Trailer With 26 Leaf Springs
    To refurbish the suspension on your 1970 Champ Stock Trailer you will need a handful of items.

Includes bolts and lock nuts sized for 1-3/4” wide springs.

  • Vintage Trailer Suspension Replacement Recommendations
    Going to a higher rated spring will not give you higher rated axles. The axles themselves have their own rating independent of the springs. So going to a higher rated spring would only increase your trailer capacity if they were the weakest link prior to replacement. That being said, your current springs are 28 inches long so you will want to pick out a spring that is slightly shorter than that as springs tend to stretch over time. The part # SP-210275 would be the best candidate as...

  • 2-3/4 Inch Long Shackle Straps and Wet Suspension Bolts for Trailer Suspension
    The eye center to center measurement on the shackles included with Dexter Heavy Duty Suspension Kit # K71-358-00 are 3-1/4 inches apart. You would need to piece together a similar kit since there are no options that already have 2-3/4 inch shackle straps. For shackle straps you can use # TRSL275, sold as singles. And for a wet bolt with nut, also sold as singles, you can use # 126B2. The shackle straps aren't the thick kind like in kit # K71-358-00 though.

  • Replacement 25 Inch Long Leaf Spring for Boat Trailer w/ 3500 lb Axle
    Because trailer springs flatten out over time, it's not always easy to find a replacement by measuring the old springs. If you put the trailer up on jack stands or a lift so that the axle is suspended, and then get your measurement. Boat trailer manufacturers like to use a lot of proprietary parts so folks will have to come to them for parts. It's possible that your spring is one of those. You can easily get the # SP-212275 to work, but you'll need to use a longer shackle strap to account...

  • Using Shorter Equalizers When Replacing Suspension Components
    The #APT9 kit will work well for you. Since the equalizers are only 1/4 inch shorter than your current ones, the shackle straps should provide you with enough play to be able to place the new hangers in the same position as your current hangers. If you'd like to give yourself a bit of extra room, you could get longer shackle straps to use in place of the ones that come in the kit. For example, the shackle straps in the kit are 2-5/8 inches long, but you could use # TRSL275 shackle straps...

  • Will Road Armor Equalizer Work In Place of MORryde CRE3000
    The Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit part # LC696740 will work in place of the MORryde CRE3000 Rubber Equalizers but you'd want to use a slightly longer shackle strap since the new equalizer are shorter than the existing. The Shackle Strap part # TRSL275 would be a great fit. If you want wet bolts we have these as part # 126B2. There are unfortunately not any thicker shackles in this size. For a tandem axle you'd need 8 shackles straps and 14 bolts.

    Since the ProLube kit # XLPROLUBE2440KIT is only rated for use on 5,200 to 6,000 pound axles I do not recommend using it for 7,000 pound axles. Grease would be better for marine applications since a hub full of grease repels water and an oil bath hub could just let the water set on top. The correct grease seal for disc brake kit # K2HR712D is # RG06-070. It does have an inner diameter of 2.25 inches and the outer diameter at 3.376 inches will fit the hub in the disc brake kit.

The Road Armor equalizer will definitely have a positive impact on your ride quality with the integrated shock absorber however.

  • Can Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers K71-654-00 Be Used To Replace Equalizers On 2003 Jayco Designer 31RLS
    There is a way to allow you to replace the factory cast equalizer on your 2003 Jayco Designer 31RLS 5th wheel trailer with the Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers. Since your current equalizers are just over 6-1/4" long you will need to use longer shackle straps to make up the difference as the # K71-654-00 only work with equalizers up to 6-1/4" long. Since you mentioned your factory shackles are 2-3/8" long you can replace them with the 2-3/4" long # TRSL275 which will put you in the useable...
