To swap out suspension or stick with OEM

I'm definitely switching to the wet bolt system.

But here's my question.
Do I swap out the OEM Lippert Equa-Flex suspension for a new Dexter EZ Flex suspension?

My '13 Cruiser has about 12,000 miles on it, and is due for tires, bearing inspection and repacking and the wet bolt system.

Looking for opinions on whether to switch brand of suspension. Which one is better? Or just let on what I have now.

Here's a video of the Lippert suspension going down the road. Looks a little wobbly to me.\

Watch closely and you can see the movement from all increased leverage. You can also see how under hard braking it lifts the one axle and the tire locks up.

You and me both.

I'm the proud owner of the 'Dexter E-Z flex suspension kit' bought from etrailer a couple of weeks ago.

I have family in town and have yet to install same, but as soon as I do (next week) I'll let you know my experiences.

The kit looks very well engineered and came complete with the 'wet bolts' so for me it was a no-brainer.

Mine came with the Lippert Equa Flex & now has close to 60k miles with no problems. I did upgrade to the MorRyde heavy shackles & wet bolts at about 5-6k miles & glad I did as the plastic spring bushings were trashed & the holes in the shackles had already started to elongate. The MorRyde kit was very good quality & came with enough bronze bushings for all spots & a couple spares, would highly recommend it. I'm fairly certain when time to replace the equalizer I'll go with the Dexter easy Flex.
