  • Dexter Axle

Double-eye leaf spring acts as part of a trailer's suspension system by providing an attachment point for a 2,000-lb axle. Spring flexes to resist shock and also ensures a smooth ride.


Features:

  • Leaf spring acts as part of your trailer's suspensions system
    • Provides attachment point for your trailer's axle
  • Multiple leaves allow flexibility to absorb road shock
    • Allows for a smooth ride
    • Reduces wear and tear on trailer
    • Ensures level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces
  • Sturdy steel construction
  • Pre-mounted hangers or aftermarket hanger kit (sold separately) required for installation
    • Spring attaches to hager mounted on trailer frame at one end
    • Other end connects to shackle straps suspended from hanger or equalizer


Specs:

  • Quantity: 1 leaf spring
  • Spring capacity: 1,000 lbs
  • Length from center of spring eye to center of spring eye: 21"
  • Spring width: 1-3/4"


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.

My 4x6 Homesteader Trailer was sagging and the tires when loaded were kissing the inside of the fenders. I called Tim at etrailer.com and he was helpful in locating the correct 3 leaf 20” leaf springs with all hardware. When removing the old springs I noticed one of the Eye brackets was tearing off the frame so first we had to take a piece of steal plate and weld the new piece in place, not to take any chances we welded the other side also. The new hardware and Leafs all went into place just fine and now my trailer is sitting were it should be.

After a lot of searching I found this company that let me find out exactly the part number for the suspension springs of my Viking pop-up camper. Had a broken spring and tried some local springs but was never satisfied as the springs in a bump would lock-up. Now it trails normal instead of jumping excessive.

The customer service was outstanding. Thru the process of identifying what I needed to ordering and delivering the products I dealt with multiple Customer Service Representatives (CSR). Everyone of them were helpful and courteous. I really appreciated the follow up after my initial contact with CSR. Once the product was ordered I was kept up to date on the status of the order thru regular emails from an etrailer CSR. The parts arrived as they promised, and a CSR even followed up with me after that. Great service, keep it up!

All products were delivered promptly and were as expected. I already completed half of the trailer leaf spring replacements (one side) and will wrap-up tonight. All is going well, and I appreciate that the product descriptions on etrailer's website were very detailed (dimension, how to measure) such that I had confidence that I was ordering just what I needed. Great products and service.

These springs arrived exactly as ordered and fit fine. Shipping took an extra 5 days due to problems with the carrier - but no fault of etrailer. My only suggestion would be to add the dimensions to the etrailer web page.

    Thank you for providing those measurements! From what I was able to determine, it looks like the total dry weight of your 1994 Layton Skyline 19ft 5th Wheel is 3321-lbs and with tandem axles, they would likely be 2000-lb capacity. Because leaf springs tend to flatten out as they get older and more worn out (making them longer), you're going to find that your measurements aren't the exact length of springs you'll use; it's most important to get close to the length while using the correct...

    The locating pin in trailer leaf springs are roughly 1/2", and are a standard size between different brands of springs. To lift your trailer with leaf springs the best way is an over-under kit which moves your axle from above the leaf springs, to below which lifts the trailer by the diameter of the axle plus the height of the leaf spring stack. We offer a few kits depending on the diameter of your axle tube. If you have a 2-3/8" diameter axle you will need the Dexter Trailer Springs...
