EQUA Flex suspension from Lippert

How does the Equa FLex suspension from Lippert rate? Are there any compatibility issues with using them?

I installed Lippert Centerpoint Air Ride Suspension on my 5th wheel 5 years ago. I looked at the other systems. I chose Centerpoint.

What do you think of the Center Point? I recently got a fantastic deal on it and will be installing it in about a month or so.

It does an excellent job. Both original supply lines leaked at crimping. I had new hoses made for a few bucks to solve the problem. I also changed it to where each bag had it's own supply line to allow better load distribution.

Thank you. I also got two air gauges and inflators for them. I was planning on each on their own system for the same reason. I do need to purchase the shackles, though.

I replaced all bronze suspension bushing wirh Never Fail bushings while installing the Centerpoint. No lubrication required. I used wet bolts in case I wanted to lube.

Wish mine did, but for $200 I can afford to buy the shackles needed. Mine came from a private party........ The parts I got look to be brand new and never installed.
