Expert Answers about Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


  • Does the Lippert Road Armor Come with Mounting Hardware
  • The Lippert Road Armor # LC696740 does not come with the bolts you'll need for installation, so you'll still need the hardware. However, the # LC64FR you're referring to are only 3/8" wet bolts and you'll actually need 9/16" diameter wet bolts. The best solution is going with something like the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit for Tandem Axle Trailers # MR46ZR (2-1/4" shackles) # MR76ZR (3-1/8" shackles). These kits come with the bronze bushings, wet bolts and shackle straps. There are some...

  • Will Using Leaf Springs With A Different Amount Of Leaves Be Okay On My 2018 Vanleigh 5TH Wheel?
  • The number of leaves on a leaf spring is not the only determining factory in the amount of weight it can handle. The thickness of each leaf as well as what the leaf is made out of can affect the weight rating and performance of the spring. The Roadmaster Comfort Ride Leaf Spring Suspension Kit # RM-2460-2570 does use 5 leaves that are 3/8" thick. Each spring is rated for 3,500lbs which is 7,000lbs per axle. This kit upgrades your suspension by allowing the axles to act independently...

Since your current equalizer is 14-5/8" long the Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers - Double Eye Springs - Tandem Axle - 5.2K # LC314336 you were looking at will be an exact replacement. Based on the pictures it looks like from the center of the upper hole to the center of the bottom hole is around 3", and from the center of the upper hole to the center of the bottom hole on the # LC314336 is 3-1/4" as shown in the included diagram, so it will work just fine.

  • How To Determine Correct Wet Bolt/Shackle Upgrade Kit For Tandem Axle Trailer
  • I can help you figure out how to determine the best option for a wet bolt/shackle upgrade kit, though in order to determine the correct one you will need to take a quick measurement of the shackle straps on your Jayco Jay Flight. The reason for that is these kits aren't specifically designed for any trailer, so to ensure the best fit you want to get the kit with the same length of shackle straps. There are a pair of options for you, depending on the length of your shackle straps: -...

  • SumoSprings for KZ Sportsmen Dual Axle Travel Trailer

These SumoSprings will fit your 2016 KZ Sportmen travel trailer as long as each of the axles is rated between 3,000 lbs and 5,000 lbs and they are overslung, where the springs sit on top of the axle. If your springs sit below the axle, which is the more common setup, you'll want to use two of part # TSS-106-40,...

First things first each of these kits are designed to replace equalizers that measures roughly 6" between the two horizontal mounting holes.

  • Dexter Suspension Kit For Tandem Trailers With Equalizers Measuring 7-3/4, 6, or 5-3/4
  • The Dexter suspension kits are high quality and include "wet bolts", bronze bushings instead of nylon and thick shackles. Properly maintained these would likely outlast typical factory kits three times over! To determine which kit is right for you simply measure the distance across the equalizer and use part # K71-449-00 for 7-3/4" long, part # K71-448-00 for 6" long, or part # K71-359-00 for 5-3/4" long.

  • 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...

  • Switching from Standard Equalizers to Road Armor Kit and Recommended Shackles + Bushings
  • You will be able to use the Road Armor Shock Absorbing Equalizers since they're fairly close in dimensions (6" wide x 3-1/4"). I recommend pairing these equalizers with the Never Fail Tandem Axle Suspension Kit # LC281285 which comes with 2 different lengths of shackle straps (3-1/2" and 4-3/8" bolt hole to bolt hole) to accommodate for the change in height, new bolts and bushings for your springs.

  • Replacement Equalizer Kit for Heritage 6,000 lb Boat Trailer
  • From the information that you gave me the correct replacement suspension kit for your Heritage boat trailer is the Dexter Heavy-Duty # K71-359-00. The equalizer uses the same dimensions and it's meant for 33" axle spacing as well. The only real difference is that your shackles show 3" for the bolt hole spacing while this kit is 2-1/4" on center, which might actually benefit your situation since your leaf springs are making contact with your trailer frame. Ideally your suspension should...

  • MorRyde Cushioned Equalizer, Wet Bolt Kit, and Springs for 2020 Freedom Express 279

The wet bolt/shackle kit you need is the part # MR46ZR and then for the frame brace you'd want the # MR49ZR. Then for new springs you'd want the part # SP-256275 which are 26 inches long and rated for 4,500 lbs.

  • LCI Road Armor Wet Bolt and Bushing Kit
  • The wet bolt and shackle kit part # LC52SV that you want to use with the Road Armor # LC696740 does not come with leaf spring bushings but we can help with that. I believe what you are looking for is bronze bushings like the part # K71-291-00 as brass is not a standard material. This is a set of four bushings and is the standard leaf spring size of 9/16 inch inner diameter and 11/16 inch outer diameter.

The overall thickness of the spring pack is 2-1/4 inches which might be thicker than what you current have and could affect the height of the trailer. For a U-bolt kit you would need the part # APUBR-8 which is for the 6k axles like you have. The equalizers you have now are Equa Flex Cushioned equalizers so for a replacement set...

This kit is specifically designed for 1-axle and 2-axle trailers that use low-pressure, off-road tires. It has greater distance between hub face and trailer frame to accommodate off road tires. The Kit you are referencing # ASR35HDS02 works with Dexter 6,000 lbs hub and drum assemblies that come with 5 spoke utility, 6 on 5 1/2 or 8 on 6 1/12 bolt patterns. The hubs and drum...

You can determine what axles are on the rig by checking the sticker/plate on the axle tubes; these identifiers will tell you who made the axle, its' capacity and/or diameter and will determine which suspension system is going to work best for you.

  • Will a 5-Leaf Spring Raise the Height on a 2014 Grand Design Reflection 303 LS.

The leaf thickness is 3/8" with an overall height of 1-7/8" so the difference will depend on what you have now compared to this five leaf spring.

The first measurement is from the bolt hole in the rear frame hanger to the front frame hanger, you will need to have a measurement of at least 91-7/8" for this system to work correctly. The second measurement is from the frame to the bolt hole in your hangers. If your hangers are at least 4-1/4"...

  • How To Choose the Correct Dexter Heavy-Duty Suspension Kit for Tandem-Axle Trailers

In order to choose the correct one you just need to make note of the equalizer dimensions; part # K71-449-00 for 7-3/4" long, part # K71-448-00 for 6" long, or part # K71-359-00 for 5-3/4" long.

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Leaf Springs for 7,000 lb Axle
  • I can give you some guidance on how to determine the correct replacement leaf springs, and you are right that replacing all four of them at the same time is a good idea. What you'll need to do for double-eye springs (which is what I assume is on your 2017 Keystone Fuzion) is measure from the center of one eye to the center of the other eye and get a match as close as you can. Just take into account that the springs may have elongated a bit over time. For example, the only double eye...

For a kit that includes new bolts, bushings, and nuts for use with the # TREQE1 we have the part # LC281285 which would work great as well. This is a never fail bushing setup that does not require any greasing as well.

The other is that they last about twice as long as any other heavy duty style of bushing kit. You'll get easily twice the mileage from this kit over anything else.
