Equa-Flex upgrade

Anyone added these to your 5th wheel and think it worth the cost?

I installed the Lippert Center Point Air Ride Suspension 27 moths ago. Have 30K miles towing with them. Really improved the trailer ride and smoother tow. I bought from Tweety's for less than the Amazon price.

Installed equaflex about 6 years ago. Works great. I also did a wet bolt install at the same time. Best 300 dollars investment as far as Im concerned.

I installed Never Fail Bushing when I installed the Center Point Suspension:
Lippert 279684 Never Fail Suspension Bushing 8 pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JMHJO4K..._Yj16wbWBD0FBH
I will see what they look like after 30K miles next week when I replace a sagging spring. I have wet bolts, but have not lubed the Bushing since installation per manufacturer instructions.

Be sure you have adequate clearance. I replaced my MorRyde CRE3000 with EZ Flex and wet bolts. Fiver road lower and I discovered the tires rubbed the wheel wells and wore through to the plywood. Went back to MorRyde and all was good. Waiting for warm, dry weather to repair damage.

Take a look at moryde 4000 4 inches of travel also as the others said go with new shackles and either wet bolts or never lube. The moryde will raise height 1 inch but they work very well. Easy install .

Good to know. I'm thinking about a Reflection 337 5'er and it seems a lot of folks with the GD trailers have to either go 16" wheels or raise the suspension as the front of the trailer can get too high real quick with some trucks.

Be sure to read clearance requirements for the SRE4000 as it does have more travel.
