Recommended Cushioned Equalizers for 2019 Forest River 242 SLC


I am looking at smoothing out my ride, what all would I need? I am looking at the EZ Flex and also the Equa Flex. I am leaning towards the EZ FleX. Looking for an expert opinion. Total trailer weight Max when towing is 10000 lb.

The E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle - 5-5/8" Equalizers # K71-652-00 is my recommendation and will work well on your 2019 Forest River 242 SLC as long as the current equalizers are shorter than 6-1/4 inches center to center. If the equalizer width is longer, then you will want to use # K71-653-00 instead which has a width range of 7-1/4 inches to 8-1/4 inches.

The Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers - Double Eye Springs - Tandem Axle - 3K to 6K axles # LC279687 is also compatible with your system. These are 5-1/2 inches center to center so you may need to change your shackle straps to fit correctly. If your axles are 6,000 lbs to 8,000 lbs then you will use # LC279688 which has a width of 7-1/2 inches on center.
