Recommended Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer for 2004 NUWA Hitchhiker II LS to Widen Axle Hanger Spacing

Question:

Which EZ Flex kit would I need to replace the oem equalizer on my trailer? I currently have the 5 5/8inch K71-654-00 on my trailer. Need to separate the axles for larger tires. Considering a larger equalizer to gain a couple inches or more of axle spread, then move axle hangars out. Any problems doing this? What would be the part number for the longer equalizer to gain 2+ inches more separation of the axles/tires?

I recommend using the E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System by Dexter Axle - 5-5/8" Equalizers # K71-652-00 which is compatible with axle spacing of 33 inches on center. It is okay to move your outside hangers to give you more space but there are standard spaces that work well for tandem axle trailers that you will want to stick to. If you want 35 inch axle spacing, then you will use kit # K71-653-00 which has wider equalizers. The integrated shackle straps of these kits will help ensure the correct fit.

Question:

Thank You for confirming my thoughts. As I already have the Dexter lubricated bolts and shackles installed, can I buy the K71-653 equalizer only? Part #?
