Video Transcript for TruRyde Trailer Suspension TRSS175 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at a spring seat for typical 2,000 pound, round trailer axles, with a 1-3/4 inch diameter. The spring seat is a necessary component of your trailer's suspension system. When mounted with a 1-3/4 inch wide leaf spring, it adds extra support and provides proper positioning for the axle. This unit's made from a durable steel construction. It welds on to a round 1-3/4 inch diameter axle, which is a typical 2,000 axle. It sits on top of a 1-3/4 inch wide spring. The cut out on the flat side of the seat surrounds the raised knob on the leaf spring to prevent turning or shifting.

It's going to provide extra support and secure positioning for the trailer axle. Please note that two spring seats are required for each axle. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. Start with the overall length, measuring edge to edge. It's going to measure about 2-1/4 of an inch long. Overall width, measures about 1-7/8 of an inch.

The height, is just shy of 1 inch, about 15/16 of an inch tall. Then this opening, right here, the rounded point, at the widest spot, that's going to give us an opening measurement of really close to an 1-1/2, maybe 1-7/16 of an inch, right in that area. That's going to do it for today's look at the spring seat for typical 2,000 pound, round trailer axles, with a 1-3/4 inch diameter.

Great fit spring seats worked perfectly



by:

First and foremost, working with etrailer was a pleasure. They were veery helpful in many ways. Secondly, Theproducts I purchased were exactly what I needed. I flipped the axle on my utility trailer in order to beef up the springs and use larger tires. The u-bolt kits were oerfect, and after having the spring seats welded onto the axle the rest of the job went smoothly. All in all 5 out of 5.



by:

Perfect for an axle leaf over mod. Welded on easily and appear very sturdy. I need to rebuild the hubs and complete the frame modifications before reinstalling the axle.



by:

I havent really gotten a chance to use the trailer much since my purchase of the leaf springs. But they went on perfect and the stance is perfect. With a weight load , they should be just right.



by:

These brackets used in conjunction with the new u-bolt kit made switching my trailer axle from being above spring to under spring.
This has raised the trailer about 3 inches in height from stock. I have a new set of wheel and tires coming and this should take care of the slight slope as seen in the picture.
After installing everything, I took the trailer for a test drive and it tracked nicely and behaved very good on the road. No problems.



by:

The only mistake I made was not ordering two axle saddles. I thought my order was for a pair, so I only ordered one. My mistake.



by:

so far so good, just did a shake down test, all good. The trailer went straight and true. Now just waiting on my other order to come in so I can put some weight on the truck and trailer for the real test.



by:

These nests are kind of hard to get wrong really. I welded them into position, haven’t thought about them since. So,… I mean,… that’s good right?



by:

Super fast shipping



by:

Solid, took a weld like a champ!



by:

Plus:
Good products for a super low
price. Accomplished the goal of bringing life back to a dead trailer. The leaf springs ride much better than the stock rubber torsion axle. The new hubs and bearings roll much easier than the worn out ones they replaced.

Minus:
A little disappointed in the spring bushing. It seemed like cheap plastic and was quite a bit larger than the bolt so it fit loosely. This was the only real negative I have about the purchased, and that's pretty minor.

Tips for etrailer:
Providing a height of the spring would make spring selection easier. In our case we were starting with scratch for mounting springs, no preexisting mounting hardware. Knowing the height of the spring from mount to axle would have been helpful in selecting a spring for the proper ride height. In a snowmobile trailer application an inch or two in height makes a bit difference in approach angle when loading a sled. This was about the only measurement not listed for springs so we guessed, and it came out well for us in the end.



by:

Exactly what I needed.



by:

The parts that fit the axel where included on the axel page and where just what I needed to adapt the axel to a smaller with trailer



by:

Bought these along with the UBolt kit for a Coleman popup camper to do an "axle flip" or move the axle from above the springs to below the springs giving 3-4 inches of additional clearance. My popup has a 1.75" axle and Dexter doesn't make prefab kits for that axle. Spring seats had to be welded to my axle, but beyond that, the axle flip worked OUTSTANDING! If you go off road at all with your camper, I can't recommend enough doing this. Should have done it years ago! Spring seats worked great!

Hey John, Im about to do the same thing to my 89 Coleman pop up. What u bolts did you use and what other items did you need? Just weld these opposite of the old ones and replace springs with u bolt?

John H.

6/5/2015

I ordered a couple of the 1- 3/4 U bolts from eTrailer as well. Yes, weld up the perches opposite the old ones but be sure to take some time to make sure theyre aligned both vertically and horizontally. I used a level to compare the top plane of the new perches with the bottom plane of the old ones with the axle upside down and clamped it in place before welding.

Thanks for responding to DC's question. The u-bolt kit that John is referencing is # APUBR-10.


by:

Excellent option when the right axle isnt. Fit was great.



by:

Highest quality. These are stout!

A year later and the axle is working just fine. I love the easy lube spindles. So easy and mess free.



by:

I purchased a number of products from etrailer and I am very pleased with them all. The shipper lost my axle. When I contacted etrailer customer service, they handled my problem quickly and I had a replacement axle in a couple days. Well done!

The products were all of high quality and the assemble was much easier as a result. I have attached a few pictures of the build for those interested.

Thanks etrailer for your great products and service!!

The trailer has performed better than my expectations. The products I purchased are all performing perfectly. When I build my next trailer, I will get all my assemble products from etrailer.com



by:

Needed "spring over" conversion on Teardrop type camper. Dexter axle required these to do it right. Perfect fit. Time from order to shipping was longer than anticipated. So parts, availability and knowledge are great, delivery time disappointing.

Thom K.

7/7/2015

Product is great. No problems whatsoever. I heartily recommend etrailer and will use them for my next camper buildconversion.



by:

Works as advertised. I had a local welder put these onto the axle for me. I ended up needing them since my harbor freight trailer had a metric dimensional spacing between the mounts and the axle I bought had a standard inches dimensional spacing. They were off by less than 1 inch, but I couldn't make it fit unless I welded on these brackets at the correct location for the trailer.



by:

Simple design. Worked as expected.



by:

I was adding some supports to a trailer deck for a friend and noticed the spring seats were rusted away, found the parts quickly on etrailer shipping was fast and the trailer is ready to get back on the road.

The spring seats and u bolts kit were very reasonably priced and do the job they are supposed to do.



by:

I have a Coleman Tent trailer and our favorite camp sites are off road. I decided to flip the axle to gain some off road clearances and level the trailer being towed by either my Truck or Jeep which have lift kits. I purchased these parts, installed and I am stoked! Great product and was easy to install. Parts were of great quality and shipped quickly. I will most definitely trust etrailer and highly recommend them. Thanks etrailer!!



by:

Thank you for exactly what I needed at a fair price.
Shipped to me in a timely manner so I was able to the job I was working on.
Your website was very user friendly as well.
keep up the good work.

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

  • Can New Spring Seat be Installed on Axle if Current Seats Don't Line Up
    Yes you can weld new spring seats to your axle so that it matches your trailer frame if you ordered the wrong size. For 1-3/4 inch spring seats you would want the part # TRSS175 that you referenced.
    view full answer...
  • Type of Metal Spring Seat # TRSS175 is Made Of for Welding
    The spring seat part # TRSS175 that you referenced is made of steel like what your axle is made of so it would not be an issue for you to weld at all.
    view full answer...
  • Do Trailer Axle Spring Centers Have to Match Perfectly
    If the spring seat dimension on the axle does not match up the suspension won't work properly as it will be bound up instead of able to move freely. This also would cause premature failure of the components as well so I'd have to recommend you reinstall them in a better location.
    view full answer...
  • Are Axles Available Without The Spring Seats Installed
    The axles we offer have the spring seats already installed and they are placed at one of 3 lengths, 48 inches, 58 inches and 74 inches apart. You would have to install new spring seats if you need the distance to be 53 inches. I have attached a link to the spring seats we offer. You will want the spring seats to be welded in place by a qualified welder.

  • Spring Seat for Trailer Axle that is Getting Moved to Other Side of Leaf Springs
    You'll need to weld new spring seats on the opposite side of the axle so that you can move the axle to the other side of the leaf springs. So since I don't know what diameter axle you have you'd need to measure to be sure. The part # TRSS300 is for 3 inch diameter axles that are normally between 5,200 and 7,200 lb. Part # TRSS350 is for 3-1/2 inch diameter axles like what are 8k axles, # TRSS175 is for 1-3/4 inch 2,000 lb rated axle, and # TRSS238 is for 2-3/8 diameter 3,500 lb axles.

  • Can Spring Seats On Trailer Axle Be Moved To Match Trailer Frame?
    They sure can! What you will need to do is replace the spring seats that are currently welded on the axle in question, and have a qualified welder weld them in the correct location to match your trailer. Now the correct spring seats will be dependent on the diameter of your axle tube. The most common sizes are the 1-3/4" # TRSS175 which is common for 2000lb axles, the 2-3/8" # TRSS238 which is common for 3500lb axles, or the 3" # TRSS300 which are common for 5200-7000lb axles. I included...

  • How to Correct Trailer Whose Spring Hangers Do Not Line Up With Spring Seats
    You will need to have the spring seats removed to have them or new spring seats welded to your axle at the correct locations to match your trailer's hanger spacing. For a 3-inch round axle rated between 5200- and 7200-lbs use part # TRSS300; for a 2-3/8-inch diameter 3500-lb axle use part # TRSS238; for a 1-3/4-inch diameter 2000-lb round axle use part # TRSS175. If you cannot re-position the spring seats to match the hanger spacing then you can have a qualified welder install new material...

  • Adding Lift To 2003 Jayco Single Axle Tent Trailer
    I spoke with my contact at Jayco about your 2003 single axle trailer. There is no lift kit available but we may have an option for you. If your 1-3/4 inch axle is round and you have underslung leaf springs, I recommend installing a new spring seat on top of the axle, like the Spring Seat for Typical 2000-lb, Round Trailer Axles, part # TRSS175. Simply flipping the axle is not an option because axles are made with a slight arc so that they can handle the load on the trailer. When placed...

    We carry over-under conversion kits that fit both a 2-3/8 and 3 inch axles. However, we do not offer a kit that will fit a 2,000 lbs axle, but we can put together a conversion kit for you that will work with your axle. You will need U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 2,000-lb, Round Trailer Axles, # APUBR-10 and 2 of Spring Seat, # TRSS175, for 2,000 lbs with 1-3/4 inch diameter.

  • Parts Needed to Flip Axle on a Pop up Camper
    I have exactly what you need, but it will have to come in the form of a couple parts pieced together because an over-under conversion kit or "axle flip kit" as some people call it isn't available for the smaller 1-3/4 inch round axles. To move your leaf springs above your axles, you will want the following parts: Qty 2 - Spring Seats # TRSS175 Qty 1 - U-Bolt Kit # APUBR-10 The spring seats will be welded to the opposite side of the axle as the current spring seats. You may not need the...

  • Does Over Under Kit for 1-3/4 inch Axle Require Welding
    All you would need for an over-under kit for a 1-3/4 inch round axle would be the U-bolt kit part # APUBR-10 and the spring seat part # TRSS175 that you referenced. You would need two of the spring seats. You will need to weld the spring seats into place.

  • Parts Needed to Flip 2,000 Pound Axle With Slipper Springs
    Technically the over-under conversion kit can be used with slipper springs if the spring seats are fully welded to the trailer axle and you would have to use a u-bolt plate that fits the springs. Since you have a 2,000 lb axle this doesn't matter since there is not a kit that fits a 1-3/4" diameter axle like the one you have. You can do the same thing with the U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 2,000-lb, Round Trailer Axles - 4-1/4" Long U-Bolts # APUBR-10 assuming you have 1-3/4" slipper springs....

  • Parts Required to do Over/Under Conversion on 1-3/4 Axle on Tractor Supply Trailer
    From what I was able to determine the Tractor Supply trailer you have likely has a 2000-lbs axle on it, which has a 1-3/4" diameter axle. There isn't a specific over/under conversion kit for that size axle but you can use 2 of the spring seat # TRSS175 and weld them on either end of your axle and then use the # APUBR-10 u-bolts you were looking at to complete the process. It should be noted that you need to have a qualified welder perform the installation of the spring seats.

  • Correct Spring Seat and U-Bolt Kit for my 1-3/4" Round 2,000 lb. Axle
    The Spring Seat for Typical 2,000-lb, Round Trailer Axles with 1-3/4" Diameter part # TRSS175 are confirmed to work with the U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 2,000-lb, Round Trailer Axles part # APUBR-10. The U-bolts are always slightly wider at the mouth than at the bend and they all fit together really well.

  • Can Trailer Leaf Springs be Moved from Below the Axle to the Top of the Axle
    Some trailers have the leaf spring stack above the axle and some have it underneath. You can move the stack to the top of the axle but you will have to weld on new spring seats to the top of the axle. Use # TRSS175 for a 1-3/4 inch round axle. It will raise the height of the trailer some but you need to be aware that it also raises the center of gravity. That makes the trailer more susceptible to sway.

  • How to Make a Trailer Axle Over Under Kit for 1-3/4 inch Round Axles
    All you would need for an over-under kit for a 1-3/4 inch round axle would be the U-bolt kit part # APUBR-10 and the spring seat part # TRSS175. You would need two of the spring seats.

    The Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs part # e62YR has a spring center measurement of 58" which is measured from the center of one spring perch to the center of the other. If this does not match what you need, you can remove them via cutting and weld new ones on where you need them using the Spring Seat part # TRSS175.

  • Over Under Kit Recommendation for 1-3/4 inch Axles
    I wish we had something we could offer you, but none of the spring seats we offer are designed to fit a 1.9 inch diameter axle. The closest we have is the 1.75 inch spring seat like part # TRSS175 which wouldn't work unless you happened to incorrectly measure your axle diameter and you do have 1-3/4 inch axles. The rest of the parts you would need would come in the kit part # APUBR-10.

  • Is There 2,000 lb, 72 Inch Axle With Spring Seats on Top
    Nope, you aren't missing anything. There are not any 2k, 72 inch axles with the spring seats on top, just with standard spring seats, like the Trailer Idler Axle Beam # e78GR. What you can do is have new spring seats welded on, which admittedly isn't as easy as just finding an axle with pre-existing spring seats, but it's really the only option. For this use Spring Seat for Typical 2,000-lb, Round Trailer Axles with 1-3/4" Diameter # TRSS175.

  • How to Convert 2K etrailer Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs to Overslung Configuration
    The Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e82GR only comes in the underslung configuration. In order to place the springs on top of the axle you'll actually need to have a professional welder install the spring seat # TRSS175 on top of the axle as Dexter Axle only makes their conversion kit for 2-3/8" and 3" diameter axles. If you're wanting the axle to come with the spring seats welded on top of the axle then you'll need to reach out to your local trailer shop or dealer to see if they'd be able...

  • Availability of Over Under Kit for 2,200 lb Dexter Trailer Axle
    All you would need for an over-under kit for a 1-3/4 inch round 2,200 lb axle would be the U-bolt kit part # APUBR-10 and the spring seat part # TRSS175. You would need two of the spring seats.

  • Does the Spring Center Distance on Replacement Axle Need to Match That of Existing Axle
    You'll need the spring centers to match the existing distance of 46.5. You could indeed still use the axle, you'd just need to take an angle grinder and remove the existing spring seats. Then, tack weld two of the # TRSS175 replacement spring seats in place. I've linked you to some product description and installation videos that you might find helpful.
