    leaf spring equalizer bushings

    Been reading about the need to check the condition of the condition of leaf spring equalizers due to wear on plastic bushings. Have any Solitude owners needed to replace their Lippert parts with Dexter parts? My rig is parked for the winter but I plan to have mine checked in the spring.

    Yes we see wear and tear ours is only nine months old and we will replace those plastic bushings with Dexter brass ones and we have found lipperts parts are low quality made in China so beware and good luck, Tom and Sandy

    Can also convert to a wet bolt set-up and pump some axle grease into the bushings.
