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..

Lippert AP Kit - Tandem Axle Road Armor Wet Bolts and Shackles - LC52SV

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (58 Customer Reviews)

Replace your tandem-axle trailer's suspension attachment parts with this hardware kit. Works with Road Armor equalizers. Includes shackles, wet bolts, and hardware.


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.



Still working great!


Great replacement parts for my fifth wheel. I would give the product a 5 star if the shackels lined up without any manipulation.


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.


Haven’t installed the kit yet. A little concerned that only one shackle fits easily on the two bolts that attach to the equalizer. Hopefully I can get them to fit when installation happens ina couple weeks.


The Parts fit exactly and installation was easy. etrailer makes taking care of my trailer easy with all the parts and service needed. I also purchased my Fiftheel hich from etrailer and they had a video on how to install. etrailer is the best.


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.


Great product!


Very well built!


Faster delivery


Excellent product


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.


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.


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


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.


Best kit for the Road Armor installatio n.


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.


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


Package was awesome and fit perfect


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


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.


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!


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


Very heavy duty kit. Shipping was fast.


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!


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

  • Lippert Road Armor Equalizer and Wet Bolt Kit For a 2012 Forest River Cherokee 245B 5TH Wheel Camper
    The Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 is 1-1/2" taller than the Curved Equalizer # TREQ104 on your 2012 Forest River Cherokee 245B 5th wheel camper. This would typically raise your suspension around 3/4". You will be able to install the Lippert AP Kit # LC52SV which will include the wet bolts with 3-1/8" shackle straps. These are going to be longer than the 2-1/4" shackle straps reducing the amount of lift to less than 1/2".

  • Can Road Armor Equalizer Kit fit 2018 Grand Design Imagine
    Most likely yes but you need to measure the distance from left to right on your current equalizers to determine if the Road Armor equalizers part # LC696740 are correct size. If they are right at 6 inches then yes this will work. The other components part # LC52SV and # K71-291-00 would also work too if so. If you have a much different equalizer dimension let me know and I'll see what you would need.

  • Replacement For 24 Inch 3,500 lb Leaf Springs & Equalizer Upgrade
    Thanks so much for that info, and to replace your current leaf springs that are 24 inches apart from center eye to center eye, you want springs that are slightly shorter because over time they flatten out. So for replacements I recommend 23-1/8" long springs: - 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 3,500-lb Trailer Axles - 23-1/8" Long # e59SR Then to replace your equalizer with a MORryde equalizer, you'll want to measure your axle from center to center, which will be your wheelbase, and the correct...

  • Can Road Armor Cushioned Equalizer Replace 7-3/4 inch Long Equalizer
    The Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit part # LC696740 will work great on a Grand Design Imagine Travel Trailer if you switch to longer shackle straps with the Lippert AP Kit part # LC52SV which also has heavy duty shackle straps and wet bolts. Ideally you replace the equalizers with same length ones but you can use a slightly shorter equalizer with longer shackle straps.

  • How To Confirm Fit of Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit
    In order to confirm fit of the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit part # LC696740 you simply need to measure the length of your existing equalizers from eye to eye on center. If they are 6" on center or close then the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit will work great. If you get a different measurement however you'll have to go with the Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers which are similar. I have attached these options below. The Lippert AP Kit part # LC52SV should then work great...

  • Road Armor Equalizer that Could Fit 2022 Keystone Passport 282QB
    I don't have a way to look up what equalizers came on your trailer so you would need to measure the distance between the left and right mounting holes on the equalizer you have now so that we can get the correct fitting one. Right now we only have the one Road Armor equalizer kit part # LC696740 which has a distance of 6 inches between the shackle holes. If your dimension is close to this it would work great but if it's something different I would need to know what you have to see what...

    The Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 are going to be the closest to your equalizer dimensions. The vertical distance from the mounting hole to the shackle mounts is 3-1/2" on center. If measuring to the holes they are 4-3/8" on center. From front shackle hole to rear shackle hole they are 6" on center like your current equalizers. The Lippert AP Kit # LC52SV will allow you to upgrade to wet bolts when you change out your equalizer.

  • Recommended Tandem Axle Hangers and Bolt Kit For 3,500LB Axles On Boat Trailer
    I recommend using the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hangers # H248 for your boat trailer. The center hanger is slightly taller by 3/8" which will work well as the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 pivots on the hanger. The Lippert AP Kit # LC52SV contains the wet bolts and shackles you will need. And I recommend replacing the nylon bushings that are included with the 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # e54SR with Bronze Bushings # K71-291-00.

    Yes, you will be able to use the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740 on your 2021 Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 23MK Black Label. This will replace the standard curved equalizer and provide you with additional cushioning and travel. I recommend using the Lippert AP Kit # LC52SV to upgrade your mounting hardware to wet bolts. This will quiet the suspension and allow the components to move more feely. You will need to replace any nylon inserts with the Bronze Bushing # D014-077-00...

  • Recommendations For Raising A 2020 Dutchman 2503REF So It Will Sit More Level When Towing
    You want to have at least 3 inches from the top of the tire to the bottom of the fender/wheel well, so upgrading to a 16" tire shouldn't be an issue in your case. Especially if you go with the Correct Track # RR23QX as well. This will add 1-1/4" to 2-1/4" of lift once installed and will definitely get you at a better level, but you will need one more single kit # LC87120 to cover all 6 hangers (two front, two middle, and two rear).

    The Lippert Ground Control 3.0 # LC358590 is designed to help support/stabilize a trailer, but it isn't meant to completely support the weight of the trailer so we'll need to use some other forms of support so you can install the Lippert AP Kit # LC52SV.

  • Which EquaFlex Equalizer for Replacing Dexter 13-10 with Wet Bolts
    The correct Lippert EquaFlex to replace a Dexter 13-10 equalizer is the part # LC279687 which is normally used with the very standard axle wheelspace of 33 inches. We do also sell the wet bolt kit part # LC52SV you are looking for as well which is the same as what you mentioned but we use a different part number. The Equaflex comes with bushings but the wet bolt kit is what you'd need to apply grease to them.

    Though it will ultimately depend on the size of your current shackles, typically when someone is upgrading to the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizer Kit # LC696740, I recommend also getting the Lippert AP Kit - Tandem Axle Road Armor Wet Bolts and Shackles # LC52SV. This has wet bolts to keep everything from seizing up and beefier 1/2" thick shackles that measure 3-1/8" from center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole.

    When using the Road Armor cushioned equalizers like the part # LC696740 the recommended wet bolt kit is the part # LC52SV which has bolts and shackle straps that have the correct length and width to fit together. A different kit like the # MR76ZR would work too since the bolts and shackles are the same dimensions but it does come with extra bushings that you would not need.

Both of these kits have 3-1/8" long shackle straps and wet bolts with built-in grease fittings for easy maintenance. The bronze bushings are more durable and last longer than the plastic bushings found on most factory suspensions. The MORryde item # MR76ZR is the kit I would recommend using.
