Rubber Equalizers Absorb Road Shock and Reduce Chucking

Rubber Equalizer Vs Standard Equalizer

Hauling a trailer that's still equipped with standard steel equalizers is bound to produce a less-than-ideal towing experience. This is because those standard equalizers allow the road shock from your trailer to transfer directly to your tow vehicle, resulting in a rough, bumpy ride.

In addition, road shock can put added stress on your trailer's frame, suspension, running gear, and more, all of which can lead to increased maintenance time and cost. It can also cause damage to the contents of your trailer due to constant chucking and jerking. And the last thing you want is for your electronics to be tossed around inside your RV before you set up camp, or for your horse to get jostled around as you bring him home from the show.


These rubber equalizers help to solve those problems. When road shock occurs while hauling your trailer, the rubber inserts absorb and dampen the vibration and bounce, resulting in a less bumpy ride. The inserts also absorb the back-and-forth movement to reduce chucking and jerking so that you don't get thrown around inside your cab.


CRE3000 Rubber Insert

Each of these equalizers also offers up to 3" of up-and-down travel. The more travel your suspension has, the better it is able to compensate for road shock. When you hit a pothole, for example, these equalizers allow your suspension to account for that dip on one side so that the opposite wheels aren't forced to compensate. As a result, you'll get a smoother ride, even when you're driving over uneven campground roads or speed bumps.


Easy Installation

These equalizers directly replace your trailer's factory equalizers, so installation is straightforward. Simply remove the shackle links from your factory equalizer and the shoulder bolt from the frame hanger. Remove the factory equalizer and replace it with the MORryde rubber equalizer.


MORryde Shackle Upgrade Kit

You can reuse your existing hardware with these equalizers, but we recommend using MORryde's suspension upgrade kit (sold separately). Factory shackle links wear out pretty quickly and easily, so replacing them with MORryde's thick, heavy-duty shackle links will save you the time and effort of having to frequently replace them. Not to mention you'll get easy-to-grease bolts and long-lasting bronze bushings with the kit for a totally upgraded setup.

Easy installation. Hardest part was removing the old bolts that were frozen in there. Grinder with a cutting wheel worked the best.

It has made a huge difference in stability and control of the trailer. The MORryde with the Sumo springs on the top of the leaf perch is perfect. Way less up and down movement and the trailer just tracks perfect because of it. That should be standard on trailers of this size. Which is a 2018 Keystone premier 26RBFB. Gross trailer wt of 7500lbs.



by:

Read a lot of review and settled on the MORryde. I already had the wet bolts so nice to complete the upgrade.
Installed while staying at a friend in SC and now back home in Nova Scotia, Canada. I actually can feel the handling improvement!!! Nice. MUCH smoother ride without a doubt. Very pleased with the unit.
Fairly easy to install once you figured out how to safely raise the camper :)
Only one issue after the assembling was done. We could not push grease through 2 bolts on one side... Even with a Milwaukee powered grease gun. It stalled! I assumed because of a tight fitting between bolt and bushing. Plenty of grease was used during assembly, so I felt confident to drive it back home... A bit of wear will open up the gap to be able to regrease with my hand gun from now on... I hope.
Very happy with the built (made in USA) quality.



by:

All ordered items arrived on time and in excellent condition. Installation will not be done for a few weeks as we are waiting for other parts from different vendors. Will update later.



by:

Great upgrade. Smoothed out my trailer ride and reduces bounce. Install requires a number of jack stands and lifts. Best if you can lift and the whole trailer at once and have floor jacks for the axles. We also made some specialty tools for punching out the old plastic bushing and pressing in the new brass of the wet bolt kit. 2 guys, 4 1/2 hrs with time to turn the new tools on the lathe.

Still loving my upgraded suspension. Just crawled under and greased all the new wet bolts. Totally lost my squeaky creaking trailer noises as you pull through a campground and the ride is butter. Dont hesitate to do this if you have stock leafs.

Going to be a big improvement on my tra iler

Very Happy with this upgrade! Trailer rides much softer with less "migration of items" and general disruption. It was done with an upgrade to all leaf Spring Mounting bolts to a "WET BOLT" upgraded Bolts that can be greased with a Zerc Fitting. Much better ride, and even the bad parts of roads and trust me they are out there, have a much smaller impact o the Trailer. HIGHLY recommend this product.



by:

I have not towed with it yet. But the installation went pretty smooth. I also installed the Morryde shackle kit. Everything looks heavy duty. The only thing is that 4 of the wet bolts were too long. I had to add 1/2 inch thick heavy duty washers to pull the Splined end of the bolts in. Shipping was good as always.



by:

After speaking to a sales representative with the usual Etrailer charm and knowledge, I ordered the Morryde shock absorbing equalizers. The construction was good and the instructions were clear. The only real problem I had was in getting the old units off. My air wrench would not move those lock nuts until I applied heat to each one and then hit them with the wrench. We put a couple hundred miles on the trailer this weekend on some very rough highway. The improvement in ride was noticeable with less stuff thrown around inside. I would recommend this product.



by:

This was a great upgrade on travel trailer replacement of the original equalizer.This was on a 2024 Jayco and took for both sides with the upgraded shackles with wet bolts took about 3 hrs. Well wort



by:

I purchase these for my son's trailer. I fitted a set on my 5th wheel over a year ago and have noticed the difference. I like the fact they are bronze bushing and have grease zerks.



by:

Ordered these a few days ago ,arrived as scheduled , was surprised by the ease of installing the MORryde Shock Absorbing Equalizers, along with their shackle upgrade kit. Time will tell!!



by:

Before buy the MORryde shock absorbing,very year I get suspension problem. Now I very happy with the new shock absorber no more problem. Thanks.



by:

This really helped smooth out the ride while towing. I installed this with the wet bolt kit and heavy duty shackles. No more popping sounds from the suspension.



by:

Great upgrade. These help improve the ride in the truck while towing. Less items move in the trailer. Definitely worth the upgrade. I would do this again on the next trailer if not installed by the factory. Also, upgrade your shackles to wet bolts.



by:

After 1 year and several trips…awesome!!! However I also installed a”wet” bolt kit and shocks…. W-H-A-T a difference!!! All from etrailer. All trailers should come like this!! 2021 271RL Salem Hemisphere

  • Upgrading Suspension Equalizers 2017 Keystone Bullet Ultra Lite 251RBS Travel Trailer 43" Wheelbase
    For your 2017 Keystone Bullet Ultra Lite 251RBS with the 43" wheelbase your trailer is most likely using either a 10" # MR54AR or 14-3/4" # MR34AR equalizer. You will need to measure your current equalizer from center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole where the shackle straps attach. You will also want to check the length of your shackle straps to find the correct upgrade kit. These are measured similarly to the equalizer from bolt hole center to bolt hole center. 2-1/4" Long Shackle...

  • Best Equalizer Suspension Upgrade For Tandem 3,500 lb Axles
    Those are some good options, and the best overall upgrade (without getting too crazy like you said!) for your Jayco with tandem 3,500 lb axles is going to be the MORryde CRE3000 with the X-factor crossmember. The Road Armor is good, but the combination of the upgraded MORryde equalizers with the crossmember will give you more added benefit. The cushioned equalizers are going to provide you with a more comfortable ride due to their rubber construction and suspension travel, which is going...

    While we don't have a way of knowing the axle spacing or wheelbase of the 3,500 lb axles on your Jayco White Hawk trailer, I can tell you how to find out, and it's super easy. What you can do is measure from the center of one axle to the center of the other, or from the center of one wheel to the center of the other wheel.

  • Upgraded Equalizer and Hardware for 2017 Keystone Bullet 243BH
    Thank you for providing that information. Since your equalizer measurement is 10" you would not want to use the # MR34AR even though it is for a 42" wheelbase. Instead, you need the # MR54AR. This is also designed for a 42" wheelbase and matches your 10" equalizer length. For the wet bolts, bronze bushings, and shackles you need the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit for Tandem Axle Trailers. You will need to measure your existing shackles from center hole to center hole to choose the correct...

  • Availability of a 10 Inch Cushioned Equalizer For a 42 Inch Trailer Axle Wheelbase
    The MORryde 10" Shock Absorbing Equalizers # MR54AR are currently our only 10" cushioned equalizer. The Road Armor # LC696740 is only available in the 6" length for tandem axle trailers. I recommend using the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit # MR46ZR with the equalizers. These will allow the suspension to travel more freely and get the most our the cushioned equalizers.

  • 2021 Grand Design 5th Wheel Still Chucking After Replacing Pin Box & 5th Wheel On 2019 Ford F250
    Your next step in trying to improve the ride quality on your 2021 Grand Design Reflection 303RLS 5th Wheel is to get a Rubber Equalizer. It all depends on your wheelbase when determining which kit to get. MORryde makes a great product that will really help. We have kits for 33" # MR87ZR, 35" # MR27ZR, 42" w 10" equalizer # MR54AR and 42" wheelbase with 14-3/4" equalizer # MR34AR. This is better than replacing the components you already spend time and money putting on.

  • MORryde 10" Shock Absorbing Equalizers And Wet Bolt Kits For 2020 Keystone Premier Travel Trailer
    The MORryde 10" Shock Absorbing Equalizers for Tandem Axle Trailers w/ 42" Wheelbase # MR54AR will come with 2 equalizers. While you can reuse your factory bolts and shackles I do recommend upgrading to the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit. We have one with 2-1/4" Long Shackle Straps # MR46ZR and one with 3-1/8" Long Shackle Straps # MR76ZR for you to choose from. You will want to select the kit that is closest to your factory strap length(measured center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole).

  • Do Bronze and Plastic Bushings Get Installed Together for Replacement Equalizer Kit
    The bronze bushings that come with the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit # MR46ZR you're pairing with the MORryde Shock Absorbing Equalizers # MR54AR can be used to replace the plastic bushings that came installed in your leaf springs. Either bushing will accept your 9/16" wet bolts which is why they both won't fit together. If you choose to remove the plastic bushing you just need to push it out of the leaf spring. Jump to about the 6 minute mark of the linked installation video and you'll...

  • Shock Kit for 2006 Keystone Passport to Stop Trailer Bouncing
    The shock kit will do the best at preventing the bouncing since they dampen the movement of the suspension which slows it down. This is why vehicle suspension does not bounce like trailer suspension since vehicles have shocks/struts. If you have a 3,500 lb trailer axle with a 2-3/8 diameter the # RM-2450 would be what you'd need. If instead you have a 3 inch diameter axle which is the size for 5,200 to 7,000 lb axles the kit you'd need is the part # RM-2460 instead. These kits will work...

  • Upgrading The Equalizer and Shackle Straps On a 2023 Jayco Whitehawk 32BH Travel Trailer
    I prefer to go with one of the MORryde equalizers but you are going to need to measure your factory equalizer to determine if you will need the 14-3/4" # MR34AR or 10" # MR54AR. This measurement is going to be from the center of the front hole to the center of the rear hole where the shackle straps attach. You will also need to measure the length of your shackle straps and select either the 2-1/4" # MR46ZR or 3-1/8" # MR76ZR. This measurement is also going to be from center of hole to center...

  • Replacement MORryde Equalizers For A 2024 Forest River RV Sabre 38DBL
    Hi John, When replacing your equalizers it's best to match the bolt hole spacings to prevent having to switch out/alter your other suspension components to fit the new spacing. You'll need to measure the horizontal distance between the shackle strap bolt holes and the vertical distance from the hanger bolt hole down to the center of the shackle strap bolt holes. Let me know what measurements you have on the current equalizers and I'd be happy to look for the correct fit.
