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 - DX65QR

Hello, everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the Dexter 30 1/2 inch long five-leaf slipper spring, with the flat end for 10,000-pound trailer axles. Now, this is a slipper leaf spring, which acts as part of your trailer suspension system. This'll provide the attachment point for your trailer's axle. This does use multiple leaves to allow flexibility and absorb road shock. The number of leaves it uses five.

And this does allow for a nice, smooth ride, it reduces the wear and tear on the trailer, and it ensures a level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces. Now, to install this leaf spring, it does require pre-mounted hangers or aftermarket hanger kit for installation. We do sell those items separately on our website. The eye of the spring, right on this end, will attach to a hanger that's mounted on your trailer frame, and the slipper end right here slides into a hanger or an equalizer. This is a sturdy steel construction.

It does use a rubber bushing with a steel sleeve, and that is included in there. The eye diameter of that steel sleeve is one inch. Few specs on this, this is for a quantity of one leaf spring. Spring capacity is 5,000 pounds. It is designed to work on an axle capacity of 10,000 pounds.

Now, a couple measurements on this. We're gonna measure the length of the spring, and that's always measured from the center of the spring eye to the end of the spring. So, if we take our tape measure, and if we go to the center, to the very end, you can see, there's your 30 1/2 inch measurement. Now, the axle location is the other measurement. Your axle will go right in the center of the spring right here, so the measurement for the axle location is the center of the eye to the very center of the spring itself.

So, center to center, you can see, is right at 13 1/2 inches. The width on this spring is three inches. But that should do it for the review on the Dexter 30 1/2 inch long five-leaf slipper spring with the flat end for 10,000 pound Dexter axles..

See what our Experts say about this Dexter Trailer Leaf Springs

  • Axle Placement and Suspension System for 20,000 lb Bumper Pull Trailer
    For your trailer, the axle placement will dictate the hanger placement as will whether you use double eye springs or slipper springs. When positioning a trailer axle or adding an additional axle, the key is to make sure that the axles are located in just the right position so that roughly 10 to 15 percent of the total trailer weight is placed on the tongue. For a heavy duty trailer like you reference I recommend using the slipper spring # DX65QR along with the Dexter Tandem-Axle Trailer...
