These will be going back. Lippert did a terrible job prepping these for shipment. They showed up with evidence of metallic grinding, dropping, and less than a quality piece. The bubble wrap that was around the pieces wouldn’t protect a Christmas ornament from the dollar tree. Definitely not going on my trailer like this.
Have only put about 3500 miles on these replacement equalizers but they appear to be getting the job done. I'm a little surprised at how much the rubber bushing portion is already compressed but will see long term. The order from etrailer was handled correctly and timely. Happy with the company.
I bought these to replace the worn-out ones I had on my trailer. It was approximately two hours install per side. I purchased all new standard bolts with never fail bushings along with all new straps. I was told I could replace the brass bushings with never fail bushings when I purchased the set. When I received equa-flex equalizers I noticed they all had pressed in brass bushings so I was not able to use the never fail bushings. I had to go down to the local trailer store to to purchase six wet bolts. All in all I am happy I just have six extra bolts and six extra never fail bushings.
These units provide an excellent ride and stability for any tandem trailer. Highly recommended and well worth the money.
Very easy install—removed wheel on rear axle and plenary of area to work. Reused hangers and bolts. Installed in about 90 minutes. Looking forward to seeing the difference in handling
Easy to install, soft brake action eliminated the pivot flip. Highly recommend them. Buy the grease zert bolts and zero issues for as long as you own the trailer
Excellent product. These a a big upgrade from the stock. Thanks to Bob and the crew for installing these. See the video of the installation.
Received the equalizer a little after lunch today. Had the passenger side of the trailer done in about an hour after some choice words getting the old one off. Putting this in was simple, and should make a good ride and stop wearing my tire out.
Worked great. Good replacement for the originale that where worn out
Seems to help with the ride. I would buy them again
Very good service and nice to talk to someone that understands and knows the business end of parts
After 10 years of wear and tear it was time to replace my equaflex system. As always etrailer staff was very helpful getting me the correct replacement parts and any upgrade parts I had questions about. Shipping was fast and the package came in damage free. Installation was a breeze and straight forward. I also added wet bolts to the spring hangers and shackles. A very good upgrade for most RV suspensions. Very satisfied customer and etrailer is definitely my go-to company.
haven't installed yet, but everything I heard is good
Fast shipping and installed easy, had trailer completely lifted which helped in attaching shackles to equalizer.
I upgraded to the 6-8000 lbs. Equlizers on my 2014 Redwood fifth wheel .
I have had 2 leaf springs break within 2 months . I did some reasearch and found an issue with the shackle bushings failing so I also went with the heavy duty wet bolt kit.
Included is a video of the equlizers doing their job.
so far so good
These were a direct replacement for my existing Equa-flex brackets on my fifth wheel RV. The originals lasted six years and needed bushings and rubber cushions were showing their age. I was able to purchase a set of these that had been returned for damage to paint. They came to me in the condition described by customer service rep. Good job as always etrailer! I also replaced the rest of bushings/bolts with a Never Fail kit I'd purchased earlier. That part of the repair was more difficult. The plastic bushings are difficult to fit in the spring eye and the threads on the bolts and nuts can strip easily if you're not careful.
Have a 30' toy hauler and first added Sumo shocks which made a difference but after adding these Equa - Flex cushioned equalizers what a BIG change in the ride and towing. E trailer shipping was very fast and they were very easy to install . To me this is a must for people with an RV.
Just to say shipping was great and fast, install took place several days later and that went very well also. Plans are to try out the new install in the coming weeks, I see no problems, very satisfied from cost to install even with age and fiscal handicaps.
Thanks etrailer for appears to be a solid design product. I would recommend this product over a flex design after 4 years needed replacement.
Quick shipping. Poor packaging from Lippert. Items banged up and chipped powder coating. Still usable
The product is amazing; however, the kit didn’t come with the Stover Nuts to put it all together. I’ve had the kit for a year and just installed it last weekend and noticed it came with no nuts.???? And trying to find 7/16 x 20 Stover Nuts is almost impossible...but I did. I would recommend a little better quality control on the items required to be in the box. I no longer need them since I’ve already purchased them from another source.
Replaced original equaflex units with these, very nice!
Great service and follow up
To Whom It May Concern;
I received my order in a quick timely manor and the sales person Adrianna was great and friendly and offered to keep track of my order so there wouldn't be any problems.. I would recommend your company and your price for this product is cheaper than [online retailer].. I hvent had a chance to have it installed yet so no pix to send.

Usual great packing job by etrailer for heavy items.

I installed these on my striping trailer and frequently travel to other states. The trailer rides sooooo much better. The grease zerts and brass bushings keep it from being squeaky. I will put this on any new trailer that I buy.
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.
Seems to be working well at taking away the big jolts from the road and giving a much smoother ride to my trailer. Way more substantial than the stock system that came on my trailer. It was about a 6 hour job for me to do myself, from begining to end. That's including getting all my tools ready, cribbing the frame, clean up, etc.
If you have a stock equalizer suspension I highly recommend this product!
Much beefier than previous shackles. Quick shipping and prompt arrival. Installation went smooth. Two phone calls to customer service, 2nd asking for proper parts. Not etrailers fault. I needed longer eye bolts after disassembly. Customer service we more than helpful both phone calls. I ended up having to order parts from a different website. Not a really big deal. Great experience as usual.
As a learning curve installing these. I made a tool to install bushings and found an air hammer made it very easy. Broke one trying to pound it with hammer. Plus had to ream out spring eye to make more round so bushing fit better. Other than that, worked well. Another hint is when you grease the pins, jack up trailer. I have a power greaser and could not get a couple to take grease. I lifted trailer and they all worked fine.
Really liked the kit as soon as I opened the box. Well made,& much beefier than stock. Went together pretty easy. Probably spent the most time figuring-out where to put the jacks. My bushings were completely worn-out, so I did have a bit of an alignment issue. That was completely on me. Due yourself a favor and don't wait too long like I did.
The results were very noticeable the first trip out. Took almost all of the slap out of the trailer suspension. Installed this kit on a 2003 Sierra 29f Fifth-Wheel toybox trailer. Primary useDirt Bike Mike is Off Road riding in the SoCal desert.
These items replaced the same items which I had installed years ago. The originals performed great. I needed to replace them due to returning to Wisconsin in the winter from Arizona. This trip happed in 2019. Due to Covid and not traveling, I didn’t perform maintenance. When I began preparing for our trip to Florida, the grease serts on the spring ends would not take grease. It required me to cut and grind off some suspension parts and replace them. Completely my fault. The first set worked so well I replaced them with the same set.
I’ve had this setup on the trailer for 1 year, works great and was really impressed on the thickness of the metal on the shackles. Nice being able to grease the bolts as well. Good upgrade highly recommend.
Dexter EZ-flex suspension kit,- Received promptly,watch the videos- very informative. Took about 10 hours for this old, arthritic guy to install. Just came back from a test drive on a particularly rough section of I-78, the difference in the ride is worth the money. Also installed SumoSpring helper springs.
It seems to help with pot holes or large bumps, when I replaced old hanger bushings they were plastic trailer had 6000 miles on it and bushing were almost wore though. Good product buy hanger kit too.
I had morryde LRE suspension system on my 5th wheel and it failed after several emails that I did not get a response to I ordered these, cut off my old suspension and installed these 2 days later i towed my camper 16 hours south and it worked great it eliminated the "bucking"i was experiencing overall way better system I'm very pleased
It feels much better when towing my trailer and I have a peace of mind that the suspension has been improved from the original. Less porpoising, especially over the local bridges.
The complete shipment arrived on time as usual for etrailer.com. However, the label was missing the name of my business and the Owner/Proprietor of the mail service I use was not going to accept the packages for lack of a name. The box number was printed the the name section.
The Owner/ Proprietor is this very small town is the ONLY mail service we have here. So, thinks very powerful by reading every label and wielding her monopolistic power upon everyone. I pleaded with her to let me have package, and she finally agreed, if I would chew your butts for missing the name
Here in this town of [town] Montana we have named her the "Mail Nazi"!
I suggest you be conscience of proper mail labeling.
Otherwise, thank you for your consistent service and prompt customer service!
So far this system has worked out really well. The HD shackles along with the ability to grease all the moving pieces is way better than the stock items. 9000 miles so far this trip
This eliminated the suspension squeak on my 12 year old 5th wheel. All of the plastic bushings were worn through.
After installing my new E-Z Flex Suspension kit a year ago I have travelled close to 25k with out any problems and it held up even after breaking a leaf spring and then later the leaf spring bracket that is welded to the frame. I am super impressed with this product and wonder why Heartland does not use it when they build there trailers.
These things look beefy as hell compared to online photos. These are WAY better then factory stock. I have them On my Big Tex dump trailer 90sr after snapping my stock ones. I haul small tractors and mowers, deliver stone and soil. Very satisfied with my upgrade.
Really nice upgrade. Night and day difference compared to the one ones and The quickness the bouncing does down makes hauling our fifth wheel not only safer but more comfortable
Great product. As an industrial designer (retired), ...kept the machine shop, I dread the quality of pretty much everything I order. Sure, one bronze bushing needed to be pressed in further and a nut was missing due to UPS's classic handling, but the end product can only be described as 'OVERKILL'. Thanks for saving one very poorly designed Lamar dump load trailer ...requiring an axle flip to have any suspension travel at all.
The E-Trailer team provided an awesome experience. The tools to research what I needed was easy and extensive. The ordering process was easy and my order was shipped and received very fast, thank you. I haven't installed the Dexter E-Z Flex suspension kit yet, but they look as advertised and I'm excited to try them out.
Bought the suspension kit and was ready to install, but ended up taking trailer to pro suspension people. Suspected springs might be bad on one side after closer inspection, and sure enough; all springs had to be replaced. Trailer measured over 1.5inchs different left to right in height.
Trailer now tracks and rides so much better. Thank you!
Product is exactly as described. Very nice compared to the stock junk that was on my trailer. Easy to install looks good too. Can't wait to test drive the ride.
I am so pleased with the performance of this product! I love improving the things I build and take great pride in quality. I was so relieved to have found etrailer. Installation was a breeze and now my home moves with ease. Thanks etrailer!
My order was shipped the same day that I placed it. What a change from other companies. Thanks
Thanks to Jessie @ e-trailer i received my order in a prompt and secure method. Although I have not begun the assembly yet because of weather conditions, I did inspect all the parts received and as per my previous experience with e-trailer they were right on. Install will be a breeze.
