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 - Slipper Spring - DX55QR

Hello everybody This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we'll take a look at this Dexter 30 and a half inch long, five leaf slipper spring with the flat end for 10,000 pound trailer axles. Now this slipper leaf spring will act as part of your trailer suspension systems. It provides the attachment point for your trailer's axle and it uses multiple leaves to allow flexibility to absorb road shock. Number of leaves they use is five on this spring. It does allow for a nice smooth ride to reduce wear and tear on your trailer at and it ensures level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces.

Now to install this spring, it does require pre mounted hangers or an aftermarket hanger kit for installation. Those items we do sell separately on our website. Basically the eye of the spring right here attaches to a hanger that's mounted on your trailer frame and the slipper end right here. This will slide into your hanger or equalizer. This is a sturdy steel construction.

Now this one does include the bronze bushing on the spring eye end here. The eye diameter with that bushing in it is seven eighths of an inch. A few specs on this, the quantity is for one leaf spring. The spring capacity on this is 5,000 pounds for this spring and it fits on axle capacities of 10,000 pounds. Now I do wanna give you a few measurements on the spring, few of the critical measurements.

The first one is the length of the spring, and that's always measured from the center of the eye to the end of the spring. That'll get you the total length. From the center to the end is right at 30 and a half inches long. And then the axle location measurement is gonna be, the axle will be mounted right here at the middle of the spring, so the actual location measurement was going to be from the center of the eye to the center of the spring. So if we do that is 13 and a half inches and the width on the spring is two and a half inches.

That should do it for the review on this Dexter, 30 and a half inch long, five leaf slipper spring with the flat end for 10,000 pound trailer axles..
