Best Cushioned Equalizer Replacement for Equalizer that is 6 inches Wide  


I would like to know if the Dexter E-Z Flex or Lippert equalizers would be better a better choice for my below application... I am looking to upgrade the suspension on my small 4,500# tandem trailer with a Dexter ez flex # K71-652-00 solution. The axle to axle spacing is 28 1/2 and springs are 1 3/4 wide and measure 21 eye to eye. The present triangular trunion castings have the two bottom holes at 6 1/4 apart and the bottom to top hole distance measures 5. The bottom hole to top hole height measures 5 3/4. All holes are 9/16 in diameter. Would this Dexter part work or, is there another solution ? Thanks ! asked by: Also, I would like to have bronze bushings on equalizer and springs, 3/8inch thick shackes and greasable shackle bolts. Woulkd need part numbers to place the order. Thanks !


Expert Reply:

The absolute best cushioned equalizer that fits the dimensions you mentioned having would be the MORryde ALLTREK 4000 part # MR89DR as this is only option to provide vertical and horizontal cushioning. This would make a big difference and you'd be really happy with it.

Then for an HD upgraded shackle kit that comes with brass bushings and wet bolts you'd also want the part # MR46ZR.
