Video Transcript for Redline Trailer Suspension - Leaf Spring Suspension - H238 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the tandem axle trailer hangers for 2" wide slipper springs. Now these hangers will suspend your leaf springs from the frame of your tandem axle trailer. These are designed for four leaf springs. Now the leaf springs we do sell separately on our web site. Also on the product page of this part there is a chart at the bottom of the page and it will help you determine the hanger location based on the type of leaf springs you use. These are designed to be used with equalizer kit part number AP202 or AP216. For a complete kit, and we do sell those kits separately on our web site, and these kits are what will include the equalizers, the bolts and the shackle straps for installing these hangers. Now this will include all of these parts here.

The two 5" tall front hangers that have the 9/16 diameter bolt holes, the two 4-1/2" tall center hangers with the 7/8" diameter bolt holes and the two 6-3/8" tall rear hangers with 7/16 diameter bolt holes. Now these are designed for use on trailers with tandem 3500 pound to 8000 pound axles and they do not include the components for mounting the axle to the springs. But when they do the measurements, I want to show you where the measurements are on the hangers. The front one, these are 5" and that's measured from the center of the bolt hole to the top of the hanger. So if we put our ruler and go from the center to the top, you can see 5". The centers we're called 4-1/2" and it's the same measurement from the center of the hole to the top and there is your 4-1/2".

And on the rear ones they we're measured at 6-3/8". So if we go from the center of the hole to the top, it's 6-3/8". But that should do it for the review for the tandem axle trailer hangers for 2" wide slipper springs.

See what our Experts say about this Redline Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension



  • Does a Tandem Axle Trailer Need Equalizers
    If your trailer has torsion axles, no worries but it it's a leaf spring suspension you really should have equalizers. Without the equalizer, the trailer will have a rougher ride and the weight won't be balanced across both axles when going over anything other than a flat surface. So potentially if you have 7000 lb trailer going over a bump with 2 , 3500 lb axles. When one axle is temporarily in the "air " the other axle will take on all the weight. That is why you don't see it too often....

  • Do Suspension Hangers Need to Welded on Or Can They be Bolted On
    You will want to weld the hangers of the Trailer Hanger Kit # AP202-H238. The holes you see are not designed to have bolts run through them. If you did run bolts they would most likely interfere with the spring and how it would sit on the hanger. I would recommend you have a qualified welder do this for you. They would easily be able to move them again if needed.

  • Should Bolts be Tightened Down Completely on Leaf Spring Hangers
    I definitely recommend pulling the bolts in until the head is flush with the hangers on your trailer's suspension. It's possible everything will work okay as they are now, but to be safe all the bolts should be tightened down completely. Even when tightened down, there will be some necessary movement there, but you will still want it as secure as possible. I have attached a leaf spring installation video that you may also find helpful

  • Will Redline Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit Work With 7-Leaf Slipper Springs
    The reference to 4 leaf springs is the quantity of leaf springs the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit, part # AP216-H238. Since it is for a tandem set up you would need to use 4 different leaf springs that are designed for axles up to 8,000 lbs capacity.

  • How to Determine Hanger Spacing on a Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Slipper Springs
    There isn't a specific distance the hangers have to be for hanger kit # AP216-H238. A good place to start is 30-1/2 inches on center but you would only really know by mocking it up on the trailer before permanently installing the hangers. To determine where the center between the 2 axles should be, and then to work and add the hangers from there, you can follow the formula in the picture I have included. Once you know where the center between the 2 axles should be it would just be a matter...

  • Jack Placement on Tandem-Axle Trailer Changing Flat Tire
    If you are asking can you place the jack directly under the equalizer of the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for 2" Slipper Springs, # AP216-H238, I recommend against doing so. I suggest for purpose of lifting the trailer for wheel removal, you go directly to the axle for jack placement or at a designated lift location on the trailer identified by the OEM.

  • Hanger Spacing for Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit AP216-H238 and 29-1/2 Inch Slipper Springs
    When using trailer suspension hanger kit # AP216-H238 with spring E5115, # SP-161275, the distance from the center of the front hanger to the center of the middle hanger AND the distance from the center of the middle hanger to the center of the rear hanger are both 31 inches. Measurements for hanger kits are approximate and it is recommended to mock up the suspension to get the proper spacing prior to permanent installation.

  • Slipper Spring and Tandem Axle Hanger Kit Recommendation for a 14k Trailer
    Both slipper springs and double eye springs will work just as well as the other as long as they are rated for the weight of the trailer. Typically slipper springs are seen more on the heavier capacity trailers. For an 8k axle rated spring you really only have the option of slipper springs. You would want the # SP-161275 like you referenced. For a tandem axle hanger kit for use with this spring you would then want the part # AP216-H238.

  • Spring Spring Hanger Spacing for Spring SP-161275
    The B dimension on a slipper spring is the distance that should be between the hanger and the mounting point on a slipper spring equalizer. For example the part # SP-161275 that you referenced should have a distance of 24-7/8 inches between the first hanger and the equalizer mounting point. Since equalizers can have different lengths there isn't a standard dimension with this spring. Let's use hanger kit part # AP202-H238 as an example. The first hanger of the hanger kit part # AP202-H238...

  • Tandem Slipper Spring Hanger Dimensions
    When you use the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit # AP216-H238 with the 4 Leaf Slipper springs part # SP-230275 the distance between the front hanger and the center hanger will be 30-1/2 inches, the distance from the center hanger to the rear hanger will also be 30-1/2 inches. This will put the axle centers at 36 inches apart.

    Yes. You can use the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit # AP216-H238 with your 29.5" Slipper Springs # SP-161275; you'll want to make sure that you space your axles 35-1/8" apart (center on center) when assembling your trailer to correctly fit the # SP-161275 springs and the # AP216-H238 hanger kit. The # AP216-H238 kit comes with everything you need to mount your leaf springs including the hangers, equalizers and mounting hardware. You'll want to make sure that the hangers are installed by...

  • Does a Slipper Spring Suspension Use a Bushing on the Slipper End
    There is not a bushing on the hangers used on slipper spring trailers. Smaller single axle trailers will have a bolt that runs through the hanger, while some larger and tandem axle trailers will have a welded tube that the spring sits on, but there's no need to use a bushing. If you need to replace your hangers you can use something like the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for 2" Slipper Springs - 13-1/8" Long Equalizers # AP216-H238 for a tandem axle trailer or the Single-Axle Trailer...

    With 29-1/2 inch leaf springs like the # SP-161275 that you referenced the axle spacing you'll want to use with the hanger kit part # AP216-H238 would be 35-1/8 inches. You cannot use the over under kits we offer with slipper springs.

  • Trailer Lift Kit For Stock Trailer
    The Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for 2" Slipper Springs # AP216-H238 you referenced is a good option, alternatively, the Torflex Lift Kit # K71-724-02 is another option that is compatible with #11 Torflex axles with 4,100-6,000-lb capacity; And will work as long as your axle uses side mounted brackets, however torsion axles that mount from the top cannot use lift kits. This kit will work as long as your axles do not use 3" tall brackets.

  • Recommended 2" Slipper Spring Hanger Kit For Tandem Axle Trailer W/ 5200-7000lb Axles
    Slipper springs are pretty common on tandem axle trailers with heavy duty axles like yours, and I recommend sticking with them as there are limited double eye springs for axles 5200lb+ like yours. The Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for 2" Slipper Springs - 13-1/8" Long Equalizers # AP216-H238 you were looking at are a great choice as it includes 5" tall front hangers, 6-3/8" tall rear hangers, and 13-1/8" long equalizers that attach to 4-1/2" tall center hangers so it will be very close...

    If you use the Dexter Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for 2" Slipper Springs # HAP-105-205-01 that you referenced you'd end up with a height of 4-7/8 inches between the axle center and the frame of the trailer. How that relates to your fender to tire clearance really depends on the location you install the fenders. For an 8k slipper spring that is 2 inches wide we have the etrailer # e37SR that would work really well. The hanger kit part # AP216-H238 instead comes with wet bolts like you...

  • Hanger Kit and Slipper Spring Spacing for Tandem 7,000 lb Axles to Add 16 Inch Wheels
    The spacing is going to depend on the size of your tires, so let's start with that. For a 16 inch wheel/tire combo with an 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern the best option is a ST235/80R16 size tire with a load range of G to handle the capacity of your trailer. . A ST235/80R16 tire will measure nearly 31 inches in diameter so if your axles centers are spaced 36 inches apart you will have plenty of room. For the slipper springs you were right on with the 5-Leaf Slipper Spring w/ Hook End for 7,000-lb...
