Video Transcript for CE Smith Trailer Suspension - Leaf Spring Suspension - CE23103 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the CE Smith u-bolt kit for mounting 2" square trailer axles. The mounting kit is going to attach a trailer axle to the leaf spring. The plates are going to be galvanized steel, then the hardware is going to be steel construction but that's going to have a zinc plated finish on it, so overall the unit is going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion. This kit is going to include 4 u-bolts, 2 u-bolt plates, and then it's going to come with the appropriate hardware, so you're going to get 8 hex nuts and 8 washers, and those are going to be lock washers. We can tell that this is designed for 1 3/4" springs simply by taking a measurement between this hole and this hole, and we can see that- that measurement is right at 1 3/4". Now the plates themselves going this direction we're looking at 3 3/4", and then going this direction it's going to have a measurement of 4". It does have the center hole for punch out on the spring.

Then right here for the u-bolts, a couple measurements I want to go over with these, these are going to give us an inner width, measuring inside edge to inside edge, of just over 2" so that's how we know that there are designed for a 2" wide square axle. Center on center those posts are going to be separated by 2 5/8". The length, measuring from the bottom of this area here to the end of the stud, that's going to give a measurement of right at 4 1/2". Then the diameter of the u-bolts, so the thickness right here outside edge to outside edge, there are going to be a 1/2" diameter. That's going to do it for today's look at the CE Smith u-bolt kit for mounting 2" square trailer axles.

I used this kit to replace the rusted ones on my flatbed trailer. I also flipped it so the axle is on top of the springs to lower it for loading my lawn tractor. See before and after pics.




by:

Everything fit perfect. I had to replace the leaf springs on my boat trailer. I have a 24' fiberglass boat that is launched and retrieved in the salt water the original springs only lasted 7 years. The new springs are heavier duty and painted or coated with a better material. Over al very very pleased.




by:

I purchased this hardware for a saltwater trailer that I use frequently because the original brackets corroded away. The hardware package was easy to install and the metal was heavier gauge than the original. Highly recommended for the advertised application.




by:

Complete waste of time and money. I bought both springs, and this set of u-bolts plates from etrailer for a new 2" square axle. The u-bolts are too short. I'd suggest someone buy a new tape measure.
I also had to grind down the spring center bolt as it stuck out of the small adapter plate and kept the spring from seating correctly (used the adapter palte which came with the springs instead of drilling a big hole in my brand new axle.)

It is getting harder and harder to get the parts I need from these folks.

Now waiting for parts to come from another vendor.




by:

Honest opinion. This was the easiest order for parts I have experienced. Parts were delivered quickly,and plenty of follow up by etrailer to ensure: order was as described, and delivered on time. My only place to order trailer parts.




by:

Perfect fit for 2” square tubing




by:

Threads were destroyed on these, had to chase the threads on both the eye bolts and u-bolts. Definitely wont use this company again.




by:

WOW sums up my recent trailer part purchases. The u-bolts fit perfectly and are well made...see attached photo and of my trailer with new parts installed. Outstanding quality, price, lightning fast delivery, and exceptional customer service from order to drop off at my doorstep. Will recommend and order again. Well done, e-trailer, and Thanks.




by:

for a trailer build. Came quick, price great, good quality. thanks etrailer




by:

Great finding parts to breath new life into old equipment. Recycling at its best and keeping usable items out of the dump.




by:

a lot thicker/heavier than what they replaced, perfect fit, very satisfied.




by:

good quality products. Great Service.




by:

Good products at a fair price delivered very quickly thank you for your good service




by:

Fast shipping




by:

Great ?? did the job




by:

Fabulous service!




by:

Excellent communication! Thank you for such great service! Will buy from you again! A plus service




by:

Got my parts fast, nothing was missing.....good enough for me.




by:

Wth rusted out leaf springs on my trailer but with zero experience replacing them, I contacted etrailer and Shawn was very helpful in selecting the right parts and taking me through the process. She was patient in terms of helping me take the right measurements and suggesting the bolts and pieces I needed to do the job right.

Everything came well packaged and complete two days later. An hour after that the springs were in my trailer and now has a boat sitting on it.

Thanks!




by:

Always have what I need.




by:

Out standing as all was. shipping is out standing order them on Friday after hours they where at my door Tuesday the next week out standing shipping. I did the same thing with brake plates all ready to put in ordered Friday I was in Oregon at the time they was at my house the next Tuesday or Wednesday standard shipping is out standing a long with everything I got here.




by:

My axel had a 1' block welded to it. Bolts were too short.
Other than that it would have fit well.

  • Determining Need to Replace Trailer Suspension Components
    If your shackle links, shackle bolts and hangers are all in good condition - meaning no obvious deterioration, damage or evidence of holes having become egg-shaped from wear - you could re-use them. But in the scheme of things these parts' costs are fairly low so if you're going to the effort of upgrading your camper's suspension I suggest you eliminate any potential doubt/concern by replacing these items if you have any reason to think they're past their working lifespan. If you are...

  • Can Axle Over Under Kit be Installed on Trailer with 2 inch Square Axles
    Axle flip kits are great options for raising the suspension of a trailer. Trucks weren't as tall back then as they are now so I'm not totally surprised your trailer is sitting so nose high. We have 2 inch square U-bolt kits like part # CE23103 which you could use, but we don't have spring seats for this axle size. So you would have to remove the spring seats on your axle and weld them on the other side.

  • 2 inch Square Axle U-Bolt Kit Recommendation for a Boat Trailer
    The CE Smith U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 2" Square Trailer Axles # CE23103 that you referenced would work well for you as they are designed specifically for 2 inch square trailer axles like what you have. The weight of your trailer and boat would not be an issue at all.

  • How To Flip Square Trailer Axle For Ground Clearance
    It is possible to mount the springs on top of the axle which is called "flipping the axle". To accomplish this we normally recommend an over-under conversion however there is not one with square u-bolts available for your square axle. Instead I recommend to use CE Smith U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 2" Square Trailer Axles - 4-1/2" Long U-Bolts - Zinc part # CE23103 which is galvanized for boat trailers. The U-bolts measure Inner width of 2-1/8" with a length of 4-1/2" and diameter of 1/2"....

  • Recommended Axle Mounting Hardware for Square Axle
    It sounds like the axles were attached with 2 inch U-bolts that are 1/2 inch diameter which are a standard size so it sounds like the axles are compatible with a standard U-bolt kit like the CE Smith U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 2" Square Trailer Axles - 4-1/2" Long U-Bolts - Zinc # CE23103. If this is the case, that is my recommendation. This will work well with 1-3/4 inch wide leaf springs. If I misunderstood and the 2 inch U-bolts were bent out to fit a 2-1/2 inch wide square axle, then...

  • What Is The Thread Length On The CE Smith U-Bolt Kit CE23103?
    I had our warehouse measure the CE Smith U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 2" Square Trailer Axles - 4-1/2" Long U-Bolts - Zinc # CE23103 you were looking at and the thread length is right at 2" with a diameter of 1/2" and an overall length of 4-1/2". These U-bolts are going to have the longest thread length of any of our 2-1/8" wide U-bolts. I included a video of the # CE23103 for you to take a look at.

  • Can Nylon Lock Nuts Be Used On CE Smith U-Bolt Kit CE23103?
    While you could physically replace the lock washer and nut included with the CE Smith U-Bolt Kit # CE23103 with nylon lock nuts, I do not recommend doing so. Nylon nuts deteriorate overtime and can back off where the lock washer and nut included will stay tight, and are also what these U-bolts were tested and designed for. I included a video of the # CE23103 for you to take a look at.

  • Needing U-Bolts to Fit Around 2x3 Trailer Frame Member
    Given the dimensions you provided, I believe that a u-bolt kit such as # CE23103 that's typically used to mount a 2 inch square trailer axle to the leaf spring pack would be your best bet. The kit includes two assemblies, each of which includes two 4-1/2 inch long 1/2 inch U-bolts with a 2-1/8 inch inside span, two bolt plates and the necessary nuts and lock washers. I've linked to a product description video for the U-bolt kit I recommended.

  • Can Round Trailer Axle be Replaced with Square Trailer Axle
    Yes, you can replace a trailer's round axle with a square axle as long as the weight capacity is appropriate. You will need a new U-bolt kit to connect the axle: 1-1/2 inch square axles # CE23102 1-3/4 inch square axles # 175130 for the U-Bolts and # 116308 for the plate 2 inch square axles # CE23103

  • Are Trailer Spring Seats Needed for Square Axles with Leaf Springs?
    Square axles normally don't have spring seats like a round axle but do have a hole for the leaf spring bolt to fit into. Take a look at the CE SMITH # CE33201GA-HUB for a visual. The U-bolt mounting kits will have a hole in the center for the other side of that leaf spring bolt to keep everything in line. If you have a 1-1/2 inch square axle use # CE23102. If you have a 2 inch axle use # CE23103.

  • Replacement Trailer Leaf Springs With A Reverse C Shaped End For A Boat Trailer
    The closest option we have to your "reverse C" style slipper spring would be the 4-Leaf Slipper Spring w/ Open Eye End for 4,300-lb Trailer Axles # SP-264275, which is 26-1/4" long. I recommend taking a second look at your current leaf springs and double checking the measurements to see if this will be a compatible fit. Since you'll be replacing your leaf springs I also highly recommend replacing your U-Bolts since these tend to bend and mold to the axle and are typically pretty hard...

  • Recommended 30 Inch Slipper Springs and 2 Inch Square Axle Mounting Kit
    For your 2,000 lb square axle, I recommend the 3-Leaf Slipper Spring w/ Flat End for 2,900-lb Trailer Axles - 30" Long # SP-039275 which is a little stronger than your axle but won't increase your capacity of 2,000 lbs. This is a 30 inch long slipper spring with a 1.75 inch width as you stated. I recommend using the Spring-Eye Bolt with Locknut for Slipper Springs - 3-1/2" Long # 166079 with each spring. For your square axle mounting, I recommend the CE Smith U-Bolt Kit for Mounting...

It can then be mounted on a 2" square axle with the CE Smith U-Bolt Kit part # CE23103. For the suspension bolts, we have the Spring-Eye Bolt with Locknut for Slipper Springs part # 166079.

To mount your springs to your frame, I recommend the Single-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs - 1-1/2" Front, 7/8" Rear # APS1 which will need to be welded in place.

  • Replacement Suspension for Tandem Square Axle Venture Boat Trailer
    I reached out to the manufacturer but they are not currently able to look up VIN numbers for part assistance. I was able to find on their website that the square tube axles are either 2000 lbs capacity each or the more common 3,500 lbs capacity each. Most of their trailers utilize the 3,500 lb axles and I believe that is the case for all their tandem axle trailers.

  • Replacement Leaf Spring and Hanger Kit for Boat Trailer that Weighs 3,995 lbs
    The best option is going to be a 4,000 lb leaf spring part # SP-051275 which is a double eye spring that is 26 inches long. For a single axle hanger kit to use with this since you'll need new hangers you'll want the part # APS4. You might be able to use your current u-bolt kit but if you need a u-bolt kit and you have 2 inch square axles you can then also use the part # CE23103. If you have a different size axle let me know.

  • Replacing Old Slipper Springs and U-Bolts
    Though the leaf springs are rusty, they do not seem to look pitted, so they should still be fine. It wouldn't hurt to clean them off with WD-40 or a rust remover to make sure they don't get worse. If you did want to replace them though, you could go with something like the Universal Group # SP-040275. As I couldn't tell 100% how wide the leaf spring is, this is a 1 3/4 wide one. It is also much longer with the overall length of 30 inches, so the rear hanger would most likely need to be...

  • Hanger Kit Recommendation for Slipper Leaf Spring # SP-264275
    Sounds like what you are in need of is a single axle hanger kit for the leaf spring part # SP-264275 that you mentioned. For that you'd only need the # APS3SE and you'd be set. This gives you the hangers for the front and rear for the spring as well as the correct nut and bolt to hold it all. For a u-bolt kit you'd then want the part # CE23103 for the axles.
