Absorbs Road Shock and Reduces Chucking

Upgrade your trailer's suspension for a smoother ride with these cushioned Road Armor equalizers. The rubber cores effectively absorb vibrations and bumps and reduce the back-and-forth movement known as chucking. Unlike standard cast equalizers, the Road Armor rubber rotation stops soak up this energy like a sponge instead of transferring it to your trailer and cargo. The result is a more comfortable ride with less wear and tear on your trailer.

360 Degrees of Protection

The Road Armor equalizers have double the protection of most aftermarket equalizers, each with 4 rotation stops for 360-degree protection. When your trailer's leaf spring encounters road shock, it will kick the Road Armor's lead side vertically up to 1-1/2", while the trailing side will push down up to 1-1/2". The opposite reaction happens on the other side of the equalizer when the trailing axle incurs the same road vibration, allowing for 6" of total travel capability per equalizer.

Easy Installation

Lippert Equalizer

It's easy to upgrade your trailer's standard suspension with a set of cushioned Road Armor equalizers. You will need 10 standard suspension bolts and 8 shackle straps (each sold separately) to incorporate the equalizers into your trailer's suspension system. Two of the suspension bolts will be used to suspend the equalizers from the center hangers, and the other 8 bolts will be used with the shackle straps to attach the equalizers to the double-eye leaf springs. If you would like to replace the bolts that attach the springs to your front and rear hangers as well, you will need 4 additional suspension bolts (sold separately).

I would give these equalizers 5 stars for performance but due to packaging I will drop them to a 4 star. Our trailer tows considerably better after installing these. After a bump, the trailer smooths out without the chucking that I was used to. Packaging wise, the bolts from one equalizer marred the powder coated finish of the other in transit.

I am glad that you are happy with the kit. We do not currently carry the zerk fitting by itself however I will have Customer Service reach out to you.


Installed these with the Dexter Bronze Bushings and Lippert AP wet bolt kit. No more clanking and banging from the trailer going down the road and especially making tight turns.


The Road Armor units are heavy duty and appear to be well built. They include bronze bushings so that is a nice upgrade. The packaging is not the greatest so one of my units was scratched up in shipment. (Hint for Lippert - a $0.01 piece of cardboard between the units would prevent the shipping damage). Lucky for me I have a can of blue spray paint that matched almost perfectly so I was able to paint it so it wouldn't rust.

I installed the units without trouble. Everything fit perfectly. I used the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit With 3 1/8" Shackles for the installation and to upgrade to bronze bushings and wet bolts.

I towed the RV on a short test run and it definitely reduces chucking when going over bridge joints, pavement imperfections, etc.

etrailer was easy to buy from. Their pricing was very competitive with other online retailers and their tech support is way better than most. My order was processed quickly and they followed up with me to ensure I was happy with my purchase. Another good experience with etrailer.


Finally quit raining long enough to install these myself. Great instructions. Simple install for anyone with basic mechanical knowledge. Minimum amount of tools needed. And WOW what a difference in the ride and towing. I could tell on the first trip that the 5th wheel I was towing, was not receiving the road shock it had before. The factory ones weren't bad, but these are far better. And a great time to check the brake's and repack the bearings. A "ounce of prevention" ya know!

Just as I expected. It seems that the drawers and doors stay closed now. That tells me that the whole trailer is getting a smoother ride over bumps and potholes.


Good Quality Product. Much better than the OEM equalizer. I recommend installing the wet bolt kit at the same time (just like everyone else) The ability to grease the bolts and bushings should greatly improve service life. My suspension squeaked horribly before the upgrade. Now it looks AND sounds good.


I have yet to road test the road armor on the rv. However we have some trips lined up in the coming months and I am excited to see how if there is a noticeable difference. One call out though, It appears that two of the zerk fittings are not working properly. I tested all of them before I installed and that’s when I found out they were not working properly.
Can i order a set to replace them or is there a way to fix it?
I will definitely recommend etrailer to anyone looking to upgrade components on their rv. The support received from start to finish is well worth the extra bucks you pay as opposed to [online].
Thank you etrailer team!


Good concept, poor execution. The equalizer has a center pivot, that cannot be accessed or lubricated. My original unit, after about 20,000 miles, wore out. The issue was the center pivot was oblong, basically destroyed. The way to tell, without taking it apart, is the top bushing will be tight and the bottom loose. New they are both tight. I would suggest the factory make this a sealed bearing, such as auto hubs use. More cost probably, but lasting more than a few years.


Install video and instructions say use the same length shackles as the stock ones. That did not work out for me with 2.25” shackles. I Used the 3 1/8” shackles to be able to install with road armor equalizer on a rogue armored toy hauler with tandem axle 7000lb. Stock equalizer was 7.8” from hole to hole. The road armor is 6”. So I tried the 2.25” shackles and was unsuccessful but the 3 1/8” seemed to work well. My wheel base center of tire to center of tire was 37” and after install was 36”.


So far these Equalizers are performing great.


Amazing difference in how smooth trailer rides now


I had these Equalizers installed by my dealer on my new travel trailer, before it even left there facility, so I can't speak to the difference it made between factory equipment and this upgrade. I can say that having them installed has given me additional confidence when pulling the trailer, as I've never felt any excessive shuddering when applying the brakes, or bounce in the truck, as I'm going down the road. I've also not had any incidents of finding items on the trailer floor when arriving at my destination, due to them rattling out of cupboards. Overall, I am quite happy with this product and I would recommend it to others. I would also recommend etrailer for this purchase, as the delivery was quick, the price was right and I think their support is Excellent.


We bought this last year I believe that they are doing well. Installed with new springs and wet bolts the springs do not seem to be holding up but these are doing great, they were just part of the upgraded suspension holding up and doing the job!


Have taken ~8 trips through the roads of New England with these on a 27' Grand Design TT. Immediately noticeable improvement compared Grand Design's standard part. TT doesn't hard-tug on the F-150 over potholes/asphalt patches/etc. and they are not anxiety inducing anymore. GD's standard part gave the TT a rough ride, tugged hard on the F-150 and completely wore-out almost all the TT's standard part's non-metal, non-lubricated bushings in about 200 miles. Was literally cast metal-on-cast metal. Installation takes a DIY'er like us some thinking, right tools, time and effort, but well worth the money and effort.


I have not installed yet but these look great. The packaging was not great and allowed some maring on the back of the mount. Doesn’t effect the performance just would expect better packing.


Definitely make the trailer ride smooth er.


One of the equalizers was scratched up a little during shipping. Better packaging would have prevented this.


First I have got to give the people at etrailer a thank you for the customer service they provided! I have only made one trip since I installed the Road Armor kit. On that trip I found out that the axles had negative camber and both were toed out. So in all fairness I can not review the
LC 696740. Have since had the axles aligned. The next trip will tell.


Huge improvement. No need to hesitate. If you’re looking at this option just buy it. Lowest cost solution out there for the level of improvement it provides. For this install I should have bought the HD shackle kit with wet bolts, I just bought shackles and hardware from the local dealer.


I noticed the ride difference right away, very pleased with the product


These pups are a little spendy but I think they make a huge difference. Look up my review in the electric brakes section you'll see I rebuilt the entire suspension on my trailer, I'm guessing I should be good to go for a while.


great price, and quick delivery, and these road armors are well built and should hold up better than stock ones


my purpose for upgrading was to eliminate the forward/back chucking after hitting a dip in the road. while it seems to have improved some it has not eliminated the problem


got the items quick, easy install ,trailer should ride a lot better now.


The Road Armor Equalizer, along with the wet bolts of the HD shackle kit, has made our 5th wheel handle bumps, railroad crossing, and speed bumps much smoother. Would recommend them to anyone pulling a multiple axle trailer. Install was easy and did not require any special tools.


We definitely have a smoother ride!
still hit sections of cement freeway that cause a hop, but it’s much better.
I would recommend them any tandem !
