Lippert Equa-Flex w/ MORryde Heavy Duty Shackle Kit

A lot has been written about the Lippert Equa-Flex system vs MORryde Cre3000 and Wet bolts/Brass Bushings vs Never-Fail Bushings. The best I can determine is that it's personal preference. I have a 2018 Keystone Springdale Summerland. it has 7700 - 7800 miles. After much study I've decided to go with the Lippert Equa-flex with the MORryde Heavy Duty Shackles and Wet-Bolts. I may even use the Never-Fail bushings and get new #5 bolts and use the MORryde bushings. I like the extra thickness they provide. Anyone have an opinion on this? Pro? Con? I'd like to see what others think of this.

Any improvement over the plastic inserts and “dry” bolts is a good thing.

"Never Fail" bushings is akin to "maintenance free batteries" No such thing - IMHO. Go with the wet bolts. As to which equalizer is better, I have only had the TrailAire equalizers. Have had good luck with them on two trailers. But, the other 2 brands/types probably work just as well.

The Mor Ryde shackle kit comes with bronze bushings, use them, pass on the Never Fail. IMHO if you have a boat/utility trailer use the Never Fail bushings, but not on your heavy rv suspension.
My 5er come equipped with the Equa flex & at about 6000 miles I added the MR heavy shackles/wet bolt/bronze bushings, now has approximately 60k & no suspension issues.

Thanks for all of the replies. It's settled then. I'm going with the Lippert Equa-Flex and the MORryde Heavy shackle kit w/ wet bolts.
