MORryde Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Spring Mounting Hardware - MR29ZR Review


Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this MORryde shackle upgrade kit for the tandem axle trailers that have the LRE leaf spring suspension and the OEM correct track hanger. Now, this heavy duty shackle kit is an excellent upgrade for RV suspension. This kit uses the 1/2 inch thick shackle brackets which are a lot thicker, and stronger and more durable than the standard 1/4 inch thick factory brackets. They also use the bronze bushings instead of plastic bushings. These bronze bushings will increase durability and they hold up a lot better than the factory plastic bushings.

And the shackle bolts on this upgrade kit, they use greasable bolts, which are also known as wet bolts and those are easily maintained, help minimize wear and tear versus a tri-bolt. Now, in a multi-axle system the shackles right here, this is what'll link the springs and the equalizers in your suspension system and the shackles are what'll handle the most movement and weight in a suspension setup therefore, they are the most likely component to wear and they should be checked frequently. Now, the shackle bolts which holds the shackle straps to your leaf springs and to your equalizer, they normally use dry bolts from the factory which, over time, can wear out and fail. This nice upgrade kit, besides using the thicker straps also uses the wet bolts, we mentioned. These are shackle bolts that'll have a grease Zerk fitting on the end, allows you to connect a grease gun to this and apply grease to the inside of the bushing.

So, when your bushing is on here the grease will come out that hole and it greases the inside of the bushing, keeps that wear from happening at the connection points. Now, this upgrade kit will replace the shackle straps, the bushings, bolts, lock nuts on your RV suspension system. Everything laid out here on the table's included. I'm gonna go through em all. Comes with eight of these 2-1/4 inch long, 1/2 inch wide shackle straps.

Now, when I say 2-1/4 inch long what I'm measuring is these from the center hole here to the center hole here. So that's a 2-1/4 inch long shackle strap. Comes with 12 of the 9/16 diameter by 3-3/8 inch long wet bolts, eight of the bronze bushings, 12 of these 7/16 size flange lock nuts, the four shear spring brackets and then in this bag there's 16 of the 3/8 inch diameter yellow zinc bolts and the 16 3/8 inch size zinc lock nuts. Does come with a nice set of installation instructions that will describe how everything gets installed and these parts are made in the USA. But that should do it for the review on the MORryde shackle upgrade kit for the tandem axle trailers with the LRE leaf spring suspension and the OEM correct track hanger..
