Morryde CRE-3000 Installation Tips and tricks

I am going to install the Morryde CRE2-3000 and heavy duty shackles/wet bolts to beef up my suspension a bit.

Does anyone who has installed the CRE-3000 and shackles/wet bolts have any tips or tricks to make the installation go more smoothly?

Thanks for your inputs in advance.

Have a great day!

Take a look at post #53 in this thread:
https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f...e-30052-6.html
I read BigJohn’s posts several times before installing my wet bolts and followed pretty much his steps. I did one axle at a time tho. Since you are replacing the equalizer too you’ll need to do one side at a time at least, it might be easier to just drop both axles.
Search for wet bolt and you’ll probably find many folks that have shared their experiences.

Installation of the Morryde CRE2-3000 and Heavy Duty Shackles/Wet bolts is complete. The entire process took about six hours. I had to do the job solo. My helper (16 yr old daughter) who really wanted to help was in school today and I needed to get it completed instead of waiting until next weekend.

I feel this upgrade will improve the stability of the trailer on rough roads and give peace of mind knowing the shackles are beefed up and the bolts are lubed.

In addition to BigJohns page for tips/tricks. I was able to find a few YouTube videos of folks swapping out to the Morryde 3000 with new shackles and bolts. The videos made the process more understanding.

For anyone wanting to do this upgrade-It is not hard as long as you have the proper tools and patience. If not-you can pay someone to install them.

Explor - that’s great news! Since the install I’ve found a degree of satisfaction in shootong some grease into moving parts, especially after seeing pics of failed shackles and plastic bushings.
Congrats!
