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 flat 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.

Today we're going to take a look at this 6-sleeve slipper spring with the flat end for a 9,000 pound trailer axle and it's 30 inches long. This leaf spring with act as part of your trailer suspension system, it provides the attachment points for your trailers axle. It has multiple leaves that allow flexibility to absorb road shock.

The pre mounted hangers our after-market hanger kit we do sell separately on our website, they are required for installation. The eye of the spring right here will attach to the hanger mounted on the trailer frame and the slipper end right here will slide into a hanger or an equalizer. A few specs on this, the quantity is for one leaf spring. The capacity on this spring is 4,500 pounds so when this one's matched with one of the same on the other side of the axle it will meet you 9,000 pound axle capacity. I do want to give you a few measurements on this. Critical measurement is the length which is from the center of the spring eye to the very end of the spring itself.

If we go from the center to the very end it's going to be right at 30 inches. The spring width is right at 2 inches. The eye diameter is 5/8 of an inch, without the bushing the opening is 1 1/4 inches. The thickness on the leaves is about a half an inch. If you notice, the total number of leaves is six. That should do it for the review on the 6-leaf slipper spring with the flat end for 9,000 pound trailer axles and 30 inches long..
