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.


Double-eye leaf springs attach to hangers that are welded onto your trailer. One end of this spring will attach directly to the hanger with a suspension bolt. The other end will attach to shackle straps that are suspended from a hanger. These straps allow the spring to move and pivot so that it can better compensate for uneven pavement. If you have a tandem- or triple-axle trailer, the shackle straps will be attached to the equalizer that connects multiple springs.


To mount this spring, you will need hangers, shackle straps, and suspension bolts. If you are simply replacing a spring, you may still have hangers welded onto your trailer. You should, however, replace your shackle straps because they are usually the first component to wear out. You may choose to replace old suspension bolts as well. It is 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 Universal Group Trailer Suspension - Leaf Spring Suspension - SP-111275 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the 5 leaf double eye spring for 6,000 pound axles. Now this is made of a nice strong durable steel construction. It is designed to flex to absorb road shock, provide a nice smooth ride which will help reduce wear and tear on your trailer. It does ensure a nice level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces and it does mount to your trailer frame with hangers or a hanger kit which we do sell separately on our website and lots of times we'll list them on this product page as a related product. If you notice in the eyes themselves it does include the nylon bushing. A few specs on this, the spring capacity of this one spring is 3,000 pounds so when this one is matched with one on the other side of the axle, it will give you a total .. It will meet the actual capacity of 6,000 pounds.

Again, if you notice it is 5 leafs, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I'll give you a few measurements on this. We're going to do the spring length and width which are the critical measurements. The spring length will be measured from the center of this eye to the center of this eye. If we take the tape measure, you can see if we go right across it will be 25 and a quarter inches for the spring length. The spring width will be measured edge to edge just right there, so you can see it's right at 1 and 3 quarter inches for the width and the eye diameter on the double eye, the eyes right here is 9, 16, 7 inch.

Now this part is for quantity of one spring. One last note I do want to mention that to ensure proper axle alignment and suspension performance, leaf spring should always be replaced in pairs. That should do it for the review on the 5 leaf double eye spring for 6,000 pound trailer axles.

I recently bought Dexter E-Z Flex equalizers and was told by multiple forum members, "Since you're unbolting your leaf springs anyways it's cheap insurance to replace your 4 leaf springs with 5 leaf springs" After much online research I found etrailer had the best price when you took advantage of their free shipping special. I could not be happier with their service and FAST shipping!!! 142844

I just wanted to let you know what a GREAT experience it has been ordering from your company. I have never had a company check up or keep me as informed on what was happening with my order. It is a great relief to know that there are still some companies that care and are not just interested in "a sale." I have attached some pictures of the old springs I took off and the new one's. The old ones were stretched flat with my dump trailer empty. When I put the new ones on it even raised the trailer up at least 4 inches. 29072

Wanted to switch to five leaf springs from 4 leaf on my dual axle 27 ft. trailer. Prices were better than I could get in Calif. with addition of free shipping. Parts arrived in three business days, I was surprised at promptness. Staff very helpful after I got my measurements figured out, as old springs were stretched 3/8 inch. Shocks arrived just after I had the springs all installed. Parts were great, only thing I would have liked better was a small instruction sheet on torqueing bolts. Would recommend etrailer to my friends. 401268

Product was great. arrived early. But it was the wrong size, greatly in part, my fault. I measured the lenght of the leafs instead of the lenght from eye to eye center. Wish during the ordering processes it was explained on how to measure. I have looked at wheels and wheel bolt patern and the instructions for ordering the correct bolt patern there are great. I am sure its probably common knowledge with those that deal with leafs on a regular basis but for those of us that will order this only maybe once in a life time, measuring instructions would have been greatly appreciated. Loved how customer service was always in contact and still is after delivery. 26134

We broke two springs on our 5th wheel so I found a good spot to stay and ordered the springs and all other parts from E trailer. Getting the old springs and related hardware off was a nightmare, but I managed. Putting the new springs and other hardware on was easy. I received great help from several of the videos at etrailer.com. I did replace all 4 springs and all other suspension hardware that wasn't welded on. Now the camper sits up about 4 inches higher, rides much better and is much more stable going down the highway. I feel much safer now, and need to since wife and I are full time Rvers. Did I mention that the prices were great? 567837

I broke one of my four leaf leaf springs and this was an upgrade, good quality and easy to install. Only thing I didn't like was the shipping box, the springs came out of it somewhere in shipping and we're scratched up. Should have replaced my old ones years ago. My trailer sits a little taller maybe a 1\2 inch. Love them. Fit perfectly. I have other trailers and will buy again. Can't believe the local shops want more than double for the same capacity spring. 374480

I will update you on the parts when I put them on. Thank You 727993

As usual, etrailer shipped extremely fast and always has great customer service. I purchased this spring to carry along in my RV as a spare, just like a spare tire serves.

My large camper flattened the factory springs so decided to upgrade them. I went from a four leaf 2500 lbs. spring to a five leaf 3000 lbs. spring. With the addition of a 4 inch equalizer between the two springs to make them horizontal, I finished the job in about 5 hours (including jacking up the camper and supporting it). On a 1/2 hour road test to verify repairs, I immediately noticed a big difference in ride and handling. I am so glad I did this. etrailer was great to deal with also from pictures and comments to items offered. They answered my questions promptly and shipping was a breeze. 704582

We installed these for a utility golf cart after not being able to find any heavy duty springs for the application we needed and these worked great.

  • Recommended Tandem Axle Hanger Kit For Double Eye Springs
  • If you use the 5-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 6,000-lb Trailer Axles - 25-1/4" Long # SP-111275 which have the same capacity, I recommend the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Front/Rear/Center # APT5 for a tandem axle application. When you follow the attached photo, this will give you the 33-1/2 inch axle spread. For your 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 6,000-lb Trailer Axles - 26" Long # SP-053275, you can use the same system but replace the equalizers with...

  • Can I Replace 4 Leaf Springs With 5 Leaf Springs For The Axle On My Trailer
  • Yes, you can replace your 4 Leaf Springs like part # SP-221275 with 5 Leaf Springs like part # SP-111275 as long as you replace all of the springs at the same time. There really isn't any advantage if you want to go with 5 leaf springs over 4 leaf springs. Typically, you always want to try to get the same parts to replace what you already have, but 1/8 of an inch difference per leaf spring won't make much of a difference in how everything fits together. The 5 leaf springs will work just...

  • Replacement Leaf Spring with Single Leaf Compared to Multi-Leaf Spring
  • The 1-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 6,000-lb Trailer Axles - 25-1/4" Long # SP-115275 will have the same capacity strength as a multi-leaf spring. It will replace a spring of the same length with the 3,000 lb capacity so it will work for a 6,000 lb axle. The benefit of not having the multi-leaf springs is the thickness is different in that this leaf spring will only have a 7/8 inch thickness making it fit well with the U-bolt around your axle. This spring will work just as well as the...

For your application these need to be spaced 29-1/2" apart on center. I have attached a diagram that demonstrates this for you.

  • Tandem Axle Hanger Spacing for Double Eye Springs 25-1/2 Inches
  • For your double eye springs that are 25-1/2 inches, it is likely your hangers are 29-1/2 inches apart on center and your springs most likely were originally 25-1/4 inches as they will stretch slightly over time. For instance if you were to use 25-1/4 inch springs like # SP-111275 then you could use tandem axle trailer hanger kit # APT5 and use either spacing 29-1/2 inches on center for a good fit.

  • To replace the 6,000lb leaf springs on your 2014 Grand Design 337, a great option is the Double-Eye 5-Leaf Springs, # SP-111275. These are 25-1/4 inches long, so to confirm they will fit your trailer, it is best to try and measure your current, unloaded leaf springs to assure proper replacement length. Typically, the number of leaves on a suspension system will not have an affect on the setup, especially when looking at leaf springs within the same weight capacity. The difference in the...

  • Leaf Spring Hits Equalizer After New Leaf Spring Install
  • The most common mistake when replacing a trailer leaf spring is measuring the existing leaf spring while the trailer is loaded (wheels on the ground) and not accounting for the leaf spring lengthening over time. Therefore, it sounds like the new leaf spring you have may be a bit longer than the one it replaced which is why it is now hitting the equalizer. This would be the only reason that this happened if the equalizers and shackle straps remained the same. If you still have the old...

  • Recommended Leaf Springs and Equalizers for Triple Axle Trailer With Double Eye Springs
  • I saw you were looking at double eye leaf springs so we will assume that is what you have. In regards to leaf spring hanger spacing, the most common for a triple axle trailer is 29-1/2" first to second (center to center), 34" second to third (center to center), and 29-1/2" third to last (center to center). Therefore, it would be best if you would place the leaf spring hangers accordingly. Once the leaf spring hangers are in the above positions then you have a few options based on axle...

  • Could Replacing Older Trailer Leaf Springs Gain Additional Height to Trailer
  • Most likely your springs are sagging a bit if they are over 10 years old. Since it's a good idea to replace those anyway that's probably a good place to start. In the 7,000 lb capacity we only have one size of 24-7/8 inches as part number # SP-198275. Even going with a new set of 6k springs will be an upgrade. For that we have a few lengths like part # SP-111275 which is 25-1/4 inches long, # SP-053275 which is 26 inches long, or part # SP-221275 which is 25-1/8 inches long.

  • I am happy to get your Montana 5th Wheel Trailer all set up with new suspension components. When picking out replacement leaf springs, it is important to keep in mind that older springs will have stretched out a bit from their original length. This difference likely won't quite be the 1-1/8 inch difference between the 26 inch measurement you took on your springs and the 24-7/8 inch Double-Eye Springs # SP-222275 you referenced, but it is still a good idea to select a leaf spring stack...

We have the leaf spring part # SP-111275 which is 25-1/4 inches long and is rated for a 6,000 lb axle which would be closest match to your 5,200 lb Dexter axles. Since springs flatten out and get longer over time this is most likely the correct size you'd need. Most likely the EZ Flex equalizer you installed is the part # K71-653-00 based...

  • Can 5-3/4 Inch or Similar Size Equalizer Replace 7-3/4 Inch Equalizer
  • It's not uncommon for a trailer with a 29-1/2 inch axle spacing to use either 7-3/4 inch or 5-3/4 ich (or similar) equalizers but the shorter ones are more commonly used with the 25-1/4 inch leaf springs, like the ones you have, designed for up to 6,000 axles. So, either the Lippert # LC279687 or Dexter # 013-143-03 equalizer upgrades could potentially work for you. Keep in mind that the previous trailer owner could have been using shorter shackle straps to make up for the longer equalizers....

  • Replacement Leaf Springs for 2011 Crossroads Cruiser with 5200lb Lippert Axles
  • The best way to determine which leaf springs will work as a replacement is by measuring the old springs from the eye center to eye center. For your 5200-lb Lippert axle, most of your options are going to be fairly close in length. Your axle has 2 potential replacement springs that are going to be fairly close in size, so you'll need to measure your old springs -they'll be a bit longer than they originally were since they'll flatten as they wear. You can use 4-Leaf Double Eye Spring...

  • What Causes Shackle Straps To Flip Below the Equalizer
  • It is not uncommon for the shackle straps to flip once weight is lifted off the suspension but if they do so when you have a load bearing then this will not allow for proper load distribution or suspension travel. The cause of this issue is that the leaf springs are too long, the shack straps are too long, or a combination of both. The best option for you to make sure you get the proper spacing would be to change these parts out. If you can let me know the distance between your leaf spring...

  • Replacement Double Eye Leaf Spring For 6,000 Pound Axle on 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Based on my research, your Dexter leaf spring is a double-eye leaf spring with a 3,000 pound capacity for your 6,000 pound axle. The original length of your existing springs is 25-1/4 inches. As springs tend to stretch a bit over time, your existing spring likely measures between 25-1/4 inches - 26 inches. To replace the springs on your axle, you can use the # SP-111275 leaf spring. This double-eye spring has a matching length, 25-1/4 inches, and weight capacity, 3,000 pounds, to your...

  • Recommended Replacement Leaf Springs for 2005 Keystone Raptor D3612 Fifth Wheel
  • Trailer manufacturers typically don't list the specific leaf spring specs in their product information but I did call Keystone to see if they could provide the necessary details about your 2005 Raptor D3612 fifth wheel, such as axle capacity, spring length, etc. My contact there was not able to provide this. What you can do is check on the axle's safety sticker or I.D. plate for its rated capacity. You can also observe how many leaves there are in the springs. The other things you need...

  • Replacement Leaf Springs For Tandem Trailer With 6,000-Lb Axles
  • If you are bottoming out with your trailer it can be caused by a weak or broken suspension causing the problem. You want to check for all of the components for any signs of obvious damage. Since leaf springs may flatten out a bit over time you will need to measure the center-of-eye-to-center-of-eye to find the right leaf springs. This should be done when the spring is off the trailer or with the trailer raised so there is no weight on the spring. One of the double-eye leaf springs...

  • Can Springs Be Upgraded on 5th Wheel Trailer With 5,200-Lb Axles
  • You may go up to a higher weight capacity spring as long as the eye-to-eye length and the width will fit, but the higher capacity springs WILL NOT increase the weight capacity of your trailer. The weight capacity will still be limited to whatever the lowest rated component of the system is, whether it be the axle, the shackles or the equalizer. If you decide to go with the higher-rated springs, you will be making the axle and the spindles the lowest-rated component, which can cause failure...

  • 6,000 lb Axle Leaf Spring Recommendation that is 25-1/4 inch Long
  • What we have that matches what you listed the best is the leaf spring part # SP-111275 which is a 25-1/4 inch long spring for 6,000 lb axles like you need. Only difference is this is a 5 leaf spring and you said yours was a 4. Aside from that this would be the same and would still work great.

  • Upgrading Leaf Springs On Trailer For 3000 lbs Capacity On 3500 lbs Axles
  • You can absolutely upgrade your 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 5,000-lb Trailer Axles - 25-1/4" Long, # SP-218275, to the 5-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 6,000-lb Trailer Axles - 25-1/4" Long, # SP-111275. This upgrade will give you the 3000 lb capacity you mentioned, but it will not give you the ability to carry larger loads. Your load capacity is rated by your axles themselves, so although stronger springs will make things less squatty, it will basically just give you a firmer ride on your...

  • How to Select Replacement Leaf Springs for 5th Wheel Trailer
  • It does sound like you have found some clear damage to your 5th wheel trailer's leaf springs that will require attention. Uneven tire wear can be caused by a number of things - incorrect pressure, inadequate weight on the axle or a visibly damaged component like a leaf spring that has allowed the suspension geometry to change. It sounds like the broken driver-side spring is letting the axle hang too low on that side, which brings the tire's outside edge into more contact with the road...

  • Is there a Specific Amount of Clearance Required Between a Tire Sidewall and the Trailer Frame/Body
  • If you keep the trailer tires inflated to the maximum psi indicated on the tire sidewall then they should not bow out on the sides enough to cause any clearance problems between the tire and the trailer. A 1/2 inch space could be enough but it is situational. It might be enough on some trailers while others may need more space to prevent rubbing. Going with a narrower wheel and/or skinnier tire could be all you need to have better clearance.
