/Leaf Spring Suspension
/25-1/4 Inch Long
Double-eye leaf spring acts as part of a trailer's suspension system by providing an attachment point for a 6,000-lb axle. Spring flexes to resist shock and also ensures a smooth ride. Includes bushings with 9/16" inner diameter.
Note: To ensure proper axle alignment and suspension performance, leaf springs should always be replaced in pairs.
Leaf springs are an integral part of your trailer suspension system. The leaf springs provide the attachment points for your trailer's axle, suspending it from the frame of your trailer. Each spring flexes to absorb road shock as you travel, allowing the axle to move somewhat independently of the rest of your trailer. This helps to reduce wear and tear on the trailer and also ensures a smooth ride.
Double-eye leaf springs attach to hangers that are welded onto your trailer. One end of this spring will attach directly to the hanger with a suspension bolt. The other end will attach to shackle straps that are suspended from a hanger. These straps allow the spring to move and pivot so that it can better compensate for uneven pavement. If you have a tandem- or triple-axle trailer, the shackle straps will be attached to the equalizer that connects multiple springs.
To mount this spring, you will need hangers, shackle straps, and suspension bolts. If you are simply replacing a spring, you may still have hangers welded onto your trailer. You should, however, replace your shackle straps because they are usually the first component to wear out. You may choose to replace old suspension bolts as well. It is recommended that you replace the other leaf spring in your setup at the same time. Because springs can sag and elongate as they wear, this new spring may not exactly match the old one, and the alignment of your trailer could be affected.
If you are fabricating a trailer, you will need to purchase a hanger kit for installation. To determine the type of hanger kit that you need, you must know the specific type of leaf spring that you have, as well as your axle capacity. Depending on the hanger kits used with them, springs can be configured to work for single-, tandem- or triple-axle applications. Hangers and other suspension components can also be purchased separately if there isn't a complete kit that works for your setup.

Today we're going to take a look at the 5 leaf double eye spring for 6,000 pound axles. Now this is made of a nice strong durable steel construction. It is designed to flex to absorb road shock, provide a nice smooth ride which will help reduce wear and tear on your trailer. It does ensure a nice level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces and it does mount to your trailer frame with hangers or a hanger kit which we do sell separately on our website and lots of times we'll list them on this product page as a related product. If you notice in the eyes themselves it does include the nylon bushing. A few specs on this, the spring capacity of this one spring is 3,000 pounds so when this one is matched with one on the other side of the axle, it will give you a total .. It will meet the actual capacity of 6,000 pounds.
Again, if you notice it is 5 leafs, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I'll give you a few measurements on this. We're going to do the spring length and width which are the critical measurements. The spring length will be measured from the center of this eye to the center of this eye. If we take the tape measure, you can see if we go right across it will be 25 and a quarter inches for the spring length. The spring width will be measured edge to edge just right there, so you can see it's right at 1 and 3 quarter inches for the width and the eye diameter on the double eye, the eyes right here is 9, 16, 7 inch.
Now this part is for quantity of one spring. One last note I do want to mention that to ensure proper axle alignment and suspension performance, leaf spring should always be replaced in pairs. That should do it for the review on the 5 leaf double eye spring for 6,000 pound trailer axles.

I just wanted to let you know what a GREAT experience it has been ordering from your company. I have never had a company check up or keep me as informed on what was happening with my order. It is a great relief to know that there are still some companies that care and are not just interested in "a sale." I have attached some pictures of the old springs I took off and the new one's. The old ones were stretched flat with my dump trailer empty. When I put the new ones on it even raised the trailer up at least 4 inches. 29072
Ordered a set of these 5 ton leaf springs for my goldstar trailer. Product was as advertised and fit perfectly. Great customer service! They answered all my questions and my ordered was shipped the same day i ordered! Will do business again! 152025

Wow! My products were ordered on-line with daily updates by email letting me know the progress of shipping. My family was in FL looking for a house over the weekend as we are moving and I received an email to let me know my package was delivered to my door. My parts were received 2 days earlier than I ever expected and could not be more pleased with the process or the quality of the parts. I have two boat trailers and two utility trailers for which I have been buying parts for to prepare for traveling across states and this was my first experience with e-trailers. I have no desire to look anywhere else in the future and will refer family and friends to your company!! Sincerely, Emile S. 336077

Product was great. arrived early. But it was the wrong size, greatly in part, my fault. I measured the lenght of the leafs instead of the lenght from eye to eye center. Wish during the ordering processes it was explained on how to measure. I have looked at wheels and wheel bolt patern and the instructions for ordering the correct bolt patern there are great. I am sure its probably common knowledge with those that deal with leafs on a regular basis but for those of us that will order this only maybe once in a life time, measuring instructions would have been greatly appreciated. Loved how customer service was always in contact and still is after delivery. 26134

Great service!! Renee was a great help in answering my questions,and getting the correct springs the FIRST time. 128462
I ordered new springs (PR5), hanger kit (APT5), and u-bolt kit (APUBR-1) for the worn out suspension on my 16 year old flatbed car trailer that has mainly been misused as a hay trailer. Whenever I receive boxes containing pieces/parts I immediately inventory to make sure everything is there. It was. It all went together as it should and I've just taken it for a test drive over some rough roads. It tows like a new one even though it sure doesn't look like it. I recommend all of these products purchased as a group because of (seemingly) good quality, proper fit, and popular prices. 191982
I recently bought Dexter E-Z Flex equalizers and was told by multiple forum members, "Since you're unbolting your leaf springs anyways it's cheap insurance to replace your 4 leaf springs with 5 leaf springs" After much online research I found etrailer had the best price when you took advantage of their free shipping special. I could not be happier with their service and FAST shipping!!! 142844

I ordered on Wednesday and I had my order on my front door on Friday it was a very fast delivery and good quality product that was extremely supper heavy duty leaf springs and hangers for my trailer made such a huge difference. I was really happy with my order and would recommend this to everyone. 272619

I just finished installing the leaf springs on my triple axel boat trailer and I'm very satisfied with the result. Shipping was quicker than anticipated… One suggestion is having a complete hardware kit that is galvanized for salt water boat trailers. i.e Shackles, equalizer, and bolts with nylon lock nuts. Thanks again for a Great Product! 38691

The springs are great! Not only did they go on smoothly, but they got here promptly too! I was very much impressed by the customer care throughout my purchase. I actually received three emails the day I ordered, each from a different person in the chain and updating me on the progress towards shipment. Thanks for the prompt, courteous service. 19569
As described, but a heavy part like a leaf spring should be better packaged for shipping. The springs banged together all the way to California arriving with many paint chips and scratches. I doubt any of this would affect the performance but if you want a fresh new appearance they will need to be repainted when you get them. 182993

I mwanted to have a spare spring for my Fifth Wheel RV when I travel. The spring is an unusual one and I could not find one at any spring or RV stores. E-Trailer had them listed at a very reasonable price. I ordered it easily and had it shipped to my next destination . I am happy to have it available in case I need it. 327508

I ordered the parts that my husband wanted on Sunday evening & Everything arrived Early Wednesday morning. My husband had the parts installed by Wednesday eve. Everything was exactly as ordered & he said very good quality. Definately order from Etrailer again. (It makes the wife look good as it was her idea!) 25836

The springs appear to be of excellent quality. I have installed them without a problem. I have not run the trailer yet but I am sure they will work fine. I am extremly happy with the service from etrailer, fast delivery, great follow up, and the best price on the internet. They have a customer for life. 118481

The leaf springs and U bolts were of good quality (what can you say about leaf springs). The only problem was insufficient capture and cushioning in the shipping container. I realize 4 springs are heavy but these busted completely through the box and luckily UPS kept the springs and box together. 133548
by: Greg C07/08/2014
Received my order right on schedule. The box was much larger than the items but packaged ok. I think a smaller box would work better as all the weight was in the bottom of the box. I haven't installed them yet so I can't review the product itself but appears it will work as designed. 139928
An excellent experience from start to finish. Website very informative and products are described in detail. Ordering was straight forward and delivery on time. Packaging was damaged, was not heavy enough for 4 springs and they tore through but were not damaged and still arrived. 198636

The springs I ordered for my boat trailer arrived in good condition. They were easily installed. I expect that they will last a good long time. Ordering was easy. The order was processed quickly. I received the springs in just a few days. My experience was very good. 237303
by: Don R08/30/2012
The springs are exactly as described and arrived amazingly quick. The best part about the whole transaction is the pricing. Even with shipping added, I still saved 30% over buying locally. Great Value and E Trailer really seems concerned about customer service. 53580

I was very pleased with the service from etrailer. My spring shipped very quickly and I had it within a couple days. It was packed well and fit my trailer as it was supposed to. I will definitely order from etrailer the next time I need trailer parts. 211719
Great service and fair pricing The round head of the bolts that index into the axe was slightly too large to fit requiring some adjustment. They should make a slight taper on the end of the mushroom head to make indexing simpler. 253062
This is great company. Fast shipping, great service, cheaper than local store. Just repair my trailer today and fit perfect for my 4 spring leaf replacement. This is good quality. You can't go wrong with eTrailer. Thank you. D. 277771

Product was rec'd very fast. The springs were ordered along with a set of 4 self adjusting brakes and rec'd in excellent condition. have not installed the new springs yet, so will update the review after installation. 159301
by: Traxcy L.03/16/2015
These springs appear to be excellent quality. The fit was exact. Very satisfied with the total process, from initial contact, thru shipping, and installation. Will use etrailer again. Thank you, Tracy 178362
They got to my door but all four of them were smashed to one side of the box. Not to many scratches but still need some padding so they dont shift so badly in transport. They will work for my trailer. 313198

The springs arrived promptly, a few days sooner than expected! I haven't installed them yet but they appear to be exactly what I ordered and expected, and at a good low price. 286746
by: Troy S.04/05/2016
Product was as advertised. The box was broke open and re-taped by shipper. Dint think anything was missing because they are big items but better packaging would be an idea. 243036
