I'm not sure LCI is still supporting those Road Armour equalizers. I only see the Equa-Flex product listed on their website. I can't find them anywhere else either.

BTW, the Road Armor Bumper people most likely own that trade mark!

I'd go with the Dexter or MorRyde if available for your wide stance. I'd also call both to confirm exactly what will/won't work before ordering either.

Maybe shackles too short

In the marked up picture, one axle ubolts at 10-15 degrees and other at “0” plumb. But the equalizer isn’t level. If the equalizer was level ubolts would be at 5-7 degrees (leaning towards each other) shouldn’t they be at “0” plumb? Longer shackles would rotate axles up in the middle, getting you closer to “0”?
In your first pic it almost looks like right axle (rear?) locked up and left axle brakes aren’t working allowing left axle to rotate freely and torquing the equalizer? Do the tires spin if raised? Maybe you pinched or nicked brake wires?
I know lots of ? Just trying to help, please excuse the non technical -plumb and level and leaning (carpenter 30 yrs)
Please keep us informed if you figure it out ( I plan on doing a wet bolt upgrade)

Assuming your TT is truly level and on level ground, my WAG (wild a~~ guess) is that the springs on both axles are not the same stiffness (spring rate).

The trailer was level. I wish that it was just the spring rate being different. But, unfortunately, the part number is the same, and I replaced both on the damaged (passenger) side. The driver side springs should have been isolated (uneffected) by the failure of the passenger spring. The suspension shop agrees that the hangers may have led to the second failed leaf spring. May have been a binding issue on the eyelet of the spring as one hangers was bent a little inwards.

Per the shop's recommendation, I've agreed to have them weld in three steel runners along the underbody to help strengthen the hangers. This shop does custom work from everything from travel trailers, fifth wheels, dump trailers, and big commercial trucks. Couldn't believe how big they were until I saw their service bays. The work will be warrantied for my length of ownership.

My new wheels and tires were delivered today, will belanced and mounted tomorrow, and dropped off Monday.
