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.


Slipper leaf springs attach to hangers that are welded onto your trailer. The eye of this spring will attach to the front hanger with a suspension bolt. The slipper end of the spring will slide into the rear hanger. If you have a tandem- or triple-axle trailer, the slipper end will slide into the equalizer that connects multiple springs. The shape of the slipper end of a leaf spring may vary slightly due to differences among trailer manufacturers. Because of this, it's important to check your leaf spring's slipper end before purchasing a replacement spring.


To mount this spring, you will need hangers, a suspension bolt, and possibly a spring keeper bolt, depending on the design of the rear hanger. If you are simply replacing a spring, you may still have hangers welded onto your trailer, but it would be wise to replace the bolts as they can experience wear. It is also 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Leaf Springs - DX45QR

Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this Dexter 30 1/2 inch long five-leaf slipper spring with the flat end for a 10,000 pound trailer axle. Now, this slipper leaf spring will act as part of your trailer's suspension system. Provides the attachment point for your trailer's axle. It does have multiple leaves that allow flexibility, absorb road and shock.

The number of leaves on this one is five leaves. It allows for a nice, smooth ride, it'll reduce wear and tear on your trailer, and it ensures a nice, level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces. Now, to install this, it does require pre-mounted hangers or an aftermarket hanger kit for installation. Those items, we do sell separately on our website. The eye in the spring right here attaches to the hanger that's mounted on your trailer frame.

And the slipper end right here is what'll slide into your hanger or equalizer. This is a sturdy steel construction. This does use a bronze bushing, which is included. And the eye diameter with that bushing installed is 3/4 of an inch. Few specs on this, this is for a quantity of one leaf spring.

The spring capacity itself is 5,000 pounds. The axle capacity it fits on is a 10,000 pound axle. And I wanna give you a few measurements on this. First measurement is gonna be the length, which is measured from the center of the spring eye to the very end of the spring. So, if I hold a ruler in the center, go to the very end, you can see it's gonna be right at 30 1/2 inches total length.

The axle location, in other words, when this is installed, the axle will be right in the middle here. So, the measurement for the axle location is the center of the eye, again, to the center or middle of the spring. That's gonna be right at 13 1/2 inches. And the spring width on this is 2 1/2 inches. But that should do it for the review on this Dexter 30 1/2 inch long five-leaf slipper spring with the flat end for a 10,000 pound trailer axles..
