It seems the wet bolts come with either of the MORryde systems or the Dexter one.
I'd urge you to contact Morryde and confirm your thoughts. The SRE4000 is for 5200 and 7000 pound axles. Your trailer probably has 4400 pound axles under it.

The wet bolt kits are "available for" but "not a part of" either Morryde system. They are extra cost options, so you'll need to order them as a separate line item when you place your order.

Just got back from picking up the TT.

They kept trying to get me to sign off on it. I had the inspection list and did most of it. Think he was about as tired as I was when I finally signed the papers.

We talked about the suspension. I saw that they sold the MORryde so asked about the cost of upgrading. The service tech said I didn't need to get the system. He said my suspension was as good. He pointed out the upgraded equalizer.

I saw that the MORryde had the wet bolts at an extra charge. It was listed with and without actually. He suggested waiting on the wet bolts for a few months instead of doing them now.

My RAM actually pulled the TT pretty good. I could feel it bounce a few times over big bumps but not as bad as I thought it would be.

I need some input on the
my 311 impact for the suspension. The wet bolt is going on but there are 2 products for the springs . The EZflex looks to be the less complicated and smaller then the SRE4000 mor ryde .For longevity is one better then the other When the rubber mounts fail what happens to the axle alignment?

Dexter E-Z Flex

I installed the Dexter K71-652-00 E-Z Flex on my 2011 Copper Canyon FW273RET (GVWR 10,400 with 2 4400# axles) just after our first trip in it. I was very pleased with the improvement in the ride in the truck and the trailer seemed to be more stable on rough roads.
I did the install myself because I had the jacks, stands and tools to do the install. I did hook up the fiver to the truck to give it more stability while I was doing the install.
After 2-3 years (35-40K miles) the rubber cushions began to look worn, I called Dexter they sent me new kits and $50 for labor since I did the replacement myself.
The wet bolts came with the kits, I believe and as a previous post said, the shackles are almost twice as thick.

Make that 10,240# GVWR. Pin weight is 1500 + 2 Alko 4400 axles = 10,300#. So I had a whopping 60# margin. I later upgraded the axles to Dexter 5200# which had bigger brake drums also.
