These are are direct replacement for the stock equalizers on my Dexter D44 4400lbs axles. They were very easy to install and have done a great job smoothing out the ride of the trailer. They are a lot heavier duty than the stock equalizer. So far I have been very impressed. If they last for a number of years I will be very happy

After a year these are still working great. They have done a lot to smooth out the trailers ride on the terrible roads.



by:

I installed the EZ-Flex equalization system on my 2021 Keystone 5th wheel this past weekend, i replaced the RoadArmor system which had all bushings worn out in less than 2 years. The EZ-Flex is built so much more sturdier than the road armor and it has grease zerks built in for easy lubrication for longer lasting system. Very happy with the service i received!



by:

An excellent product from Dexter and etrailer. This definitely smooths out the ride of your trailer and benefits you, your tow vehicle, and your cargo. Online ordering was easy and shipping was fast. Thanks etrailer!



by:

I ordered the K71-655-00 which is for a trailer with 35” axle spread after a local trailer repair business up sold me the EZ Flex system, but put on parts for a 33” axle spread. Right at two years it started to rip the leaf spring mounts in half from the frame. After much research, I discovered their error and so far with the correct piece in place everything is happy again.

Correct part in place and upgraded hangers all is well.



by:

Exact replacement parts for Heartland Bighorn trailer and at the lowest price around. Thanks once again, Repeat customer.



by:

Works good on my utility trailer. Can't tell much difference empty, but loaded (+/-5000#) provides better ride and easier on hauled equipment. Super easy installation



by:

Super fast shipping and great prices and quality parts



by:

Haven't installed yet on my Keystone Raptor toy hauler but quality out of the box looks amazing. I installed the lighter version of these on my bass boat and it made a huge difference.



by:

Haven't installed them yet, but E-trailer/Carol C. was extremely helpful in finding the correct size and capacity equalizer for my trailer. I will continue to use e-trailer going forward thanks to their excellent knowledge and friendly customer service.



by:

Great product easy to install.I have the rubber suspension for the 8000lb axel. Just make sure the spring bolts grease holes are facing the front are rear of the T. T. Before you seat the bolts put grease from the grease gun to make sure the grease will ease flow into the spring bushing and out side of the spring. Have not tried it yet.

We broke down on a Saturday near Cincinnati and couldn't find any parts, so I called etrailer and luckily they had a wet bolt kit in stock. They shipped it next day, which means business day, next day, aka Tuesday " thanks UPS ". I had the kit installed by a mobile mechanic and I was back on the road by 3:30pm.



by:

Had to replace the axles and decided while there, just do the whole suspension too. Got the axles directly from Dexter but purchased the suspension kit from etrailer. Replacing the equalizer was the easiest part of this project and if I didn't have to replace the axles, probably would have had it done in under 2 hours. Time will tell how well it rides and the tires wear.



by:

Have not installed them yet. They seem to be much better quality than the Equa-flex that came on the 5th wheel. Very happy with E-TRAILER and their knowledgeable staff.

  • Replacement Equalizers for Dexter 13-143 Equalizers
    Thanks for the pictures! To replace your Dexter 13-143 equalizers you will want the E-Z Flex Equalizers item # K71-655-00. This is the exact replacement to your equalizes. They have an identical 7-3/4" bolt hole to bolt hole dimension.

  • Availability of 7-3/4 inch Equalizer Kit with 3-1/8 inch Long Shackles
    The lengths of the shackles that come with the equalizer kit part # K71-449-00 that you referenced are 2-7/8 inches measured from hole center to hole center. If yours are currently 3-1/8 inches this change would slightly lower the height of the trailer but it would still work. To match the shackle lengths and also be the thicker style you'd need the kit # MR76ZR with the # K71-655-00 which is cushioned. Or for just a standard equalizer and shackle kit you'd want the # e99ZR.

  • Recommended Upgraded Equalizer for 2021 Grand Design Imagine 22RBE XLS
    For your 2021 Grand Design Imagine 22RBE XLS I recommend the Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-653-00. The best upgrade option is typically the one that matches your current equalizers. You have standard Dexter 7-3/4" equalizers right now so these will be perfect with the same dimensions. I installed the E-Z Flex on my trailer and they do a great job smoothing out the ride. The part linked above is the full kit. It also comes with wet bolts, bronze bushings, and heavy duty shackles. These...

  • Does The Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer K71-655-00 Fit 1-3/4" Wide Leaf Springs?
    Yes, the Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer # K71-655-00 will indeed work with the standard 1-3/4" wide double eye leaf springs.

  • Is There A Greaseable 7-3/4" Long Standard Equalizer?
    We do offer a few of the 7-3/4" long equalizers with 3 9/16" holes. Unfortunately, the standard equalizers in this size like the # TREQE1 are not greaseable. There is the Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer # K71-655-00 which is a 7-3/4" long cushioned equalizer. It does have two grease zerks and it also has a rubber core which helps to reduce chucking and absorb shock.

  • Replacement Equalizers and Shackle Kit for a Keystone Toy Hauler
    To replace your equalizers, I recommend the MORryde Shock Absorbing Suspension Equalizers for Tandem Axle Trailers item # MR27ZR. These equalizers are designed for trailers with a 35" axle spread. They are slightly wider then what you're currently using but a 1-1/4" on either side will not affect your suspension. The MORryde equalizers are designed for axles up to 8,000 lbs so they will be perfect for your 14,390 lbs toy hauler. I have linked an installation video below along with a diagram...

  • Upgraded Equalizer for 2019 Grand Design Imagine 2500RL
    The Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 are a great choice. I actually have them on my Jayco Jay Feather and they do a great job smoothing out the ride. These along with the SumoSprings will be a great combination. You currently have 7-3/4" long Dexter equalizers on your trailer so they match your current dimensions which is what you want. The only additional thing I recommend is actually getting the full kit which is # K71-653-00. This comes with wet bolts, bronze bushings, and heavy-duty...

  • Equalizer Upgrade Recommendation for Tandem 3,500 lb Dexter Axles
    Hey David, thanks for reaching out! I recommend replacing your current equalizers with the E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 which are compatible with up to 8K axles. These are a great step up to standard equalizers and while they aren't crazy high-end upgrades, you will be able to tell a significant different in the towing performance of your trailer with these installed.

  • Dexter E-Z Flex 8,000 Lb Equalizers Without The Kit Components
    Yes, you can purchase the equalizers by themselves from the kit part # K71-653-00. The E-Z Flex 8,000 lb Equalizers alone without the kit components is part # K71-655-00 for a quantity of 2. The equalizers measure 2-7/8" tall by 7-3/4" Long from center hole to center hole. The bolt hole diameter is 9/16".

  • What Width Leaf Spring Does Dexter EZ Flex Equalizer # K71-655-00 Work With
    The Dexter EZ Flex equalizer part # K71-655-00 was designed to work with the standard 1-3/4 inch wide leaf spring. Your current equalizer distance of 7-3/4 inches from one hole center to the other is a match for this kit and means it would fit and work well.

  • Upgraded Equalizer for Enclosed Trailer With 8" long Equalizer
    The best upgraded equalizer is the one that is the closest match to your current measurements. Since you have an 8" long equalizer you want the Dexter # K71-655-00. This measures 7-3/4" center to center between the outer shackle bolt holes. If you don't already have them, I recommend upgrading to heavy duty shackles, wet bolts, and bronze bushings as well. Assuming you have 2-1/4" shackle straps you can use the # K71-653-00 which comes with these parts and includes the same upgraded equalizer.

  • Will E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 Fit Trailer with Similar Equalizer Dimensions
    If the equalizer dimensions are pretty close to the dimensions of the E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 that you referenced and less than 8,000 lbs axle capacity then the equalizer will fit and work well. It would be a direct replacement.

  • Cushioned Equalizer Kit for 35 Dutchmen Kodiak 302BHSL
    More important than the wheelbase when picking out a cushioned equalizer is the distance between the two bolt holes that attach to the shackles that you mentioned. Since you said your dimension is 7-3/4 inches the best option for a cushioned equalizer replacement would be the Dexter EZ Flex part # K71-655-00. This is the correct size, does a great job smoothing out the ride quality, and is the correct weight capacity.

  • Recommended Wet Bolt Kit For a 2016 Heartland Bighorn 3160EL With Correct Track Suspension System
    The MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit # MR58ZR is designed to work with the bolt sizes you have on your 2016 Heartland Bighorn 3160EL with the Correct Track suspension. It includes longer bolts for the adjustable mount on the end of your leaf springs. It includes new bronze bushings that you can use to replace your nylon bushings. This kit is also compatible with the Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 that were added to your Bighorn. I recommend using the LubriMatic LMX Industrial...

  • Equalizer Upgrade Recommendation For 7-3/4 Inch Long Equalizer on Tandem Axle Trailer
    Appreciate the photo, and you look to have an equalizer that is 7-3/4 inches from center to center, and for an equalizer upgrade I recommend the E-Z Flex: - E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 The E-Z Flex # K71-655-00 will do exactly what you are looking for with improving your ride due to the rubber core, which cushions the movement. These are for axles up to 8k as well so they are rated more than high enough for your application.

  • What is the Difference Between the Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-653-00 & # K71-655-00
    The difference between the # K71-653-00 and the # K71-655-00 is that one is a kit and one is just the equalizers. The Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension Kit # K71-653-00 includes the equalizers, shackles, nuts and bolts. While the E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 only includes the equalizers and mounting bolts with locknuts.

  • Boat Trailer Equalizer Flips with Little to No Weight on the Trailer
    What you are experiencing is common on tandem axle trailers when little or no weight is on them. The weight compresses the suspension and would not allow this to happen, or at least not as easily. If you were to use the E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 they would still pivot like stock equalizers though maybe not to the same degree or frequency. They can be used on boat trailers. It appears that you might actually benefit more from slightly longer leaf springs. When everything is set up...

  • Choosing the Right Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension for Replacing Standard Equalizers
    You shouldn't loose any wheel clearance with the Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension Kit. First you will want to see which of the Equalizers you need. There is a 6,000lb Equalizers # K71-654-00 (5-5/8") and 8,000lb Equalizers # K71-655-00 (7-3/4"). The 6,000lb is for hubs spread 33" on center and 8,000lb for hubs 35" on center. If you choose either the Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension 6,000lb Kit # K71-652-00 or 8,000lb Kit # K71-653-00 they will include 2-1/4" shackle straps. If your current shackle...

  • Will Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers Work On Tandem Lippert Axles
    Dexter components like the Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers # K71-655-00 you were looking at will work just fine on your Lippert axle, but you will want to make sure that the new equalizer has the same horizontal bolt hole distance as your current equalizers to keep your suspension geometry the same. The # K71-655-00 is measures 7-3/4" from the center of the horizontal mounting holes, so if that matches your current equalizers this would be a great option. Regarding the replacement shackle...

  • Recommended Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer for 2004 NUWA Hitchhiker II LS to Widen Axle Hanger Spacing
    I recommend using the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle - 5-5/8" Equalizers # K71-652-00 which is compatible with axle spacing of 33 inches on center. It is okay to move your outside hangers to give you more space but there are standard spaces that work well for tandem axle trailers that you will want to stick to. If you want 35 inch axle spacing, then you will move the hangers and use kit # K71-653-00 which has wider equalizers to make up for the larger spacing....

  • Determining If Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizers LC696740 Fit 2021 Forest River Sabre 5th Wheel
    I would be happy to help you determine if the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizers # LC696740 you were looking at will fit your 2021 Forest River Sabre 36BHQ, but this is not information that we have on hand so you will need to measure your current equalizers. The # LC696740 measure 6" center to center of the horizontal mounting holes so as long as that matches your current equalizers this would be a great upgrade option for you.

  • Can the E-Z Flex # K71-655-00 be Used for Axle with 31" Spacing Instead of 35" Spacing
    Since the eye-to-eye measurement of your current equalizer is 7-3/4" just like the E-Z Flex # K71-655-00, and the height difference is only 1/4" you can use this kit. The 35" spacing is the standard spacing that Dexter Axle usually has for trailers that use this size equalizer. I spoke with my contact at Dexter Axle who said that as long as the equalizer matches like we mentioned then this is perfectly fine.

  • Can 5-3/4 Inch or Similar Size Equalizer Replace 7-3/4 Inch Equalizer
    It's not uncommon for a trailer with a 29-1/2 inch axle spacing to use either 7-3/4 inch or 5-3/4 inch (or similar) equalizers but the shorter ones are more commonly used with the 25-1/4 inch leaf springs, like the ones you have, designed for up to 6,000 axles. So, the Lippert # LC279687 could potentially work for you. Keep in mind that the previous trailer owner could have been using shorter shackle straps to make up for the longer equalizers. Otherwise, an equalizer that is too long...
