I ordered the kit for my 5th with the CRE 3000 already installed from the factory. It was an easy swap out and took about 2.5 hrs with all the jacking and blocking required. Some of the bolts can give you a little trouble, but if the rig is fairly new and nothing is rusted it will go smoothly.

I think I paid about $90.00 from Tweety's at the time I did it 2 years ago.

Significant increase in quality over stock.

Be gentle on the brass if you need to tap it in. Use a rubber mallet or block of wood. Do not hit them with a hammer directly.

After reading this thread, I'm going to have to check my shackles. All the original parts have a lot of miles on them, so there must be some wear.

This is the kit I was going to order but after close inspection of the shackles they are showing no visible signs of wear. We probably don't have 2k miles on the trailer as we mostly camp locally. Mor Ryde UO12016 Heavy Duty Shackle Kit | eBay

I changed mine out to the Mor Ryde kit at 20,000 on our 2014 Octane. The shackles were just starting to show some wear, but all the bushings were is various states of advanced wear. About half were worn to metal to metal contact. I would definitely change them if you have higher mileage, but wouldn't be too concerned if the trailer is used for close by, low mileage trips.
