Does Lippert Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizer Kit LC314336 Include Shackle Straps


I measured the spacing between the bolt holes and its about 16 inches so the equa flex at 7/12 would be way too short I guess. I think they have a wider version thats about 15 inches. I assume I could use that one and make up 1/2 on each side right?If its determined I can use the equa flex 15 inch does the shakle kit come with it or do I have to purchase separately. If separately which kit do I need to purchase?

The Lippert Equa-Flex Cushioned Equalizer Kit # LC314336 for tandem 5.2K axles should be a drop-in replacement for the standard equalizers on your trailer which have about 16-inches between shackle bolt holes. But if find that you do need longer shackle straps you can order them separately as neither they nor shackle bolts are included with the Equa-Flex. Once you dismantle the suspension and take the tension off you may find you do not need them.

Shackle straps and related parts like bolts appear on the linked page.
