Equalizers

So I'm on a search for equalizers to replace the stock ones on our 2020 328RLS Outback. I know everyone has opinions, and I understand that. But does anyone have opinions that are based on any criteria, research, evaluations, etc etc? Of course cost is a consideration, so I'm looking for good value, ie, a good product for a good price, not necessarily the cheapest, and not necessarily the best.

I have the CR3000 as OEM on my TT. It's been in use for 2.5 seasons and looks fine. I'd buy another when it wears out.
My TT also has OEM shocks and literally floats down the road.

In part, it depends on the size and shape of the existing equalizer. You want something that the attach points for the shackles and the pivot fall out about where the original solid equalizer does now. I have looked at every single "rubber" or "cushioned" equalizer on the market, MoRyde, Lippert, Dexter, and none of them come close to my rather odd equalizer and shackles. Anything I could install would tend to lower the trailer, and its already too low.



I have actually read complaints about the MoRyde units, that the rubber in them didn't last long, But you need to read the reviews, on Etrailer.com and anywhere else you can find reviews on them.

This set here comes real close for me...... https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Lea.../LC696740.html

And while not a fan of Lippert products, I actually do like the design of these, but no telling how good they really are.

We had Equa-Flex equalizers on a 25' trailer for eight years before we traded it and I just put the same ones on our current trailer because they improve the ride drastically. Also went to new shackles and wet bolts all around. That is something I did not do on the other trailer. We have not been anywhere since the change but I expect the results to be similar to the other trailer. Whatever you pick, it will be a noticeable improvement.

Recently installed Lippert Road Armors on my TT. Found a great price on an 'open box' from Amazon. Also installed wet boltswith bronze bushings. Only one trip so far, very happy with it. Looks like Amazon is currently sold out.

My wife even commented the trailer 'doesn't seem to be bouncing the truck as much as usual'... she had forgotten I installed the Road Armors and noticed the difference without asking.

Replaced the factory originals with the Mor Ryde CRE 3000. Has worked well and they seem to be standard now on the newer models of our trailer.

I did the same as the old bolts were worn out, the new shackles are heavier. etrailer.com
I like the result, but it is personal... no 'official' study, just the opinion of others. Isn't that really the same thing as a 'study'?
