Will this kit work on a stock suspension system for a camping trailer weighing about 4000?
MOR/ryde U012-016 SRE 4000/CRE 3000 Heavy Duty Tandem Axle Shackle Kit
I have a tandem axle using 9/16" shackle bolts with shackle holes on 2.25 inch centers. There are no bushings used, so the hole in the springs is just a little larger than 9/16". Are the bolts in this kit smaller than 9/16" or am I supposed to use the kit without the bushings?

Thank you for contacting us today. The UO12-016 would be the correct kit for a system with a stock equalizer with 2.25'' shackles. To our knowledge, all trailers would have come from the factory with bushings on the system, but a lot of the manufacturers use nylon bushings that tend to wear through and fall off. This may be what has happened to yours?
The bronze bushings in our kit have an outside dimension of 11/16'' and our bolts are 9/16'' and those should fit the bolt holes.
Let us know if you have any questions or if there is anything else we can assist you with!
