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-169275 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the 3-leaf double-eye spring for 2,000-pound trailer axles. This is made of a strong durable steel construction. It is designed to flex to absorb any road shock and provide a nice smooth ride, which will help reduce wear and tear on your trailer. It ensures a nice level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces. It is designed to mount to your trailer frame with hangers or a hanger kit. We do sell those separately on our website, and they are also listed on this product page as a related product.

If you notice, it does include the nylon bushings and the eyes. A few specs on this. The capacity on this spring is 1,000 pounds. When this is mated with one on the side, it'll meet the axle size of 2,000 pounds. The leafs, again, is three; one, two, three. Going to give you a few measurements on this.

The spring length, which is measured from the center of this eye directly across to the center of that eye, center to center, and you can see is going to be right at 20 3/8 inches. The spring width, overall width on the spring, is going to be right at 1 3/4 inches. The diameter on the spring eyes are 9/16 of an inch. Again, this is for a quantity of one spring. One note I do want to mention is to ensure proper axle alignment on your trailer and great suspension performance, leaf springs should always be replaced in pairs.

That should do it on the review of the 3-leaf double-eye spring for 2,000-pound trailer axles.

Ask the Experts about this Universal Group Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension

  • Determining Hanger Spacing for Replacement Leaf Springs on Trailer
    The closest leaf spring set we have available to the 22-1/4 inch length you mentioned is the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-113275. This double-eye leaf spring features a length of 23-1/2 inches from the center of the spring eye to the center of the other spring eye. I recommend making sure you are measuring your existing leaf spring from the center of one eye to the center of the other. This particular set is designed for 2,000 pound axles, so you will want to also make sure any new springs...

  • 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 2,000-lb Trailer Axles Shackle Bolt Diameter
    The 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 2,000-lb Trailer Axles - 20-3/8" Long part # SP-169275 takes a 9/16" diameter shackle bolt like part # 166081. The trailer's weight rating is determined by the two axle capacities so one axle would not need to be rated to support the whole load if it's a tandem axle trailer. The capacities would be split up. If your boat is gear, fuel, and trailer is around 3,200 lbs I recommend to go with the 2-2,000 lb axles and 1,000 lb leaf springs because if not your...

  • Availability of Trailer Leaf Spring With 20-1/2 Eye to Eye Dimension
    If the trailer has a 2000 lb capacity axle, and the eye to eye distance was measured when the trailer was jacked up so that the axle hung freely, the # SP-169275 would meet the criteria you mentioned. If the axle capacity is unknown, the trailer or axle might have an ID plate listing the capacity. If you can't locate any ID plate on the trailer, if you provided the wheel bolt pattern and inner and outer wheel bearing reference numbers, I could make an pretty accurate guesstimate as to...

  • Replacement Leaf Springs Measuring 20-3/8 or 20-1/2 Inches Long Center Eye to Center Eye
    The only double-eye spring we offer that's near the dimension you mentioned is part # SP-169275 for a 2000 lb axle. The spring has three leaves, but keep in mind that the number of leaves a spring has doesn't necessarily denote its weight capacity. The # SP-169275 spring measures 20-3/8, eye to eye. Since trailer springs can flatten out and elongate over time, it's entirely possible that these springs would be the correct replacements. To get the proper eye to eye dimension of your existing...

  • Replacement Leaf Spring Recommendation for 2002 Carry On 4 x 6 Cargo Trailer
    I can't find any info on the spring part number you gave me, but if the spring you need is a 20-3/8 inch spring designed for a 2,000 lb axle the part # SP-169275 would be exactly what you need. The spring seat is welded to the axle. You'd have no problem reusing the seat you have currently with the new springs.

  • Replacement Leaf Spring Recommendation to Replace 20-3/8 inch Spring on 2,630 lb Axle
    Unless you didn't need to take full advantage of the 2,630 lb axle capacity of your trailer the part # SP-169275 would not work. If your trailer would never see more than 2,000 lbs this would work well. A better option would be the part # SP-216275. This is a 3,500 lb spring and is a tiny bit shorter at 23-1/8 inch which will work great for you since springs stretch when they are old.

    Although we do not have an exact replacement for your 3 leaf slipper spring, the Double-Eye Spring # SP-169275 that you referenced will work great. It is rated for use with a 2,000 lb trailer axle so your weight rating of 1,750 lbs will be no problem. To install this on your trailer you will need a suspension kit like part # APS4. Since each trailer setup is unique you will need to check out the helpful information on the suspension kit page as well as the helpful article that I attached...

  • Are Leaf Springs Installed on Top or Below Axles for Tandem Axle Boat Trailer
    The springs could be either on top of or under the axle, depending on the diameter of the tires used, the fender clearance and the amount of ground clearance needed. Boat trailers are usually slung pretty low to keep the center of gravity low, but this isn't' found in every case. If you're trying to determine how everything will fit together, measure up from the ground by 1/2 the diameter of your tire. This will give you a good idea of where the axle center would sit.

  • Are 3-Leaf or 4-Leaf Trailer Suspension Springs Better If they Have the Same Weight Capacity
    If the 4-leaf springs and the 3-leaf springs you are looking at have the same weight capacity and dimensions, then there is really no advantage in choosing the 4-leaf spring over the 3-leaf spring. It is recommended that you replace your leaf springs in pairs so you are using the same springs on each axle. As long as you remain under the weight capacity of the leaf springs, the 3-leaf spring will be no more likely to break than the 4-leaf springs unless there was a manufacturing defect...

  • Replacement Leaf Springs for a 2004 Flagstaff Pop-Up Camper
    To find the correct replacement leaf springs for your trailer you will need to know the gross trailer weight capacity. We have one spring that measures 26 inches from eye center to eye center for 2,000 pound axles, # SP-124275. Also be sure that when you measure the spring that there is no weight on it. You can do this by jacking up one side of the trailer or by taking the spring off completely.

  • How to Choose the Correct Leaf Spring Length and Correct Positioning
    When choosing a replacement leaf spring for your trailer suspension you will want to choose a leaf spring that is compatible with your hangers and that has the proper weight capacity rating. I have attached a link to our available selection of leaf springs that you can filter through. The leaf spring that matches the most with the dimensions you gave me is part # SP-169275 which is 20-3/8 inches long from center eye to center eye, but it is only rated for a 2,000-lb trailer axle so it...

When that is known, we'll look for a leaf spring that's a bit shorter than the...

  • Switching From Slipper Springs to Double-Eye on a Single 2K Axle Trailer with Square Axle
    To switch to double-eye spring suspension I recommend getting parts individually since the u-bolts cannot be swapped out of kits. The spring in the kit is # SP-169275. We have a few different u-bolt kits for square axles including # CE23102 for 1-1/2 inch square axles. For a 1-3/4 inch square axles you can use u-bolt # 175130 and plate # 116308. And for 2 inch square axles we have # CE23103. You will also need a new hanger kit since double-eye springs use different hangers than slipper...

  • Leaf Spring Replacement Recommendation to Replace Boat Trailer Leaf Spring that Measures 21-1/2 in
    The Leaf Spring part # SP-169275 would be a leaf spring that would work for you as long as the spring you are replacing is 1-3/4 inches wide and your trailer doesn't need a spring with a higher capacity than 2,000 lbs. This spring is 20-3/8 inches in length. Over time springs will flatten out and lengthen so a leaf spring that measures 21-1/2 inches while still on a trailer would be a good candidate for the # SP-169275 as a replacement.

  • Replaced Leaf Springs On Tandem Axle Boat Trailer And The Rear Springs Are Tilting Rear Axle Forward
    If you do not have the boat on the tandem axle trailer, what you have mentioned is how the trailer suspension will look without a load on it. The equalizer will be up in the rear and the rear spring will be tilting the axle forward. The reason is because the rear tires on your boat trailer are made to scrub when turning and with the suspension set up this way it keeps the majority of the load on the trailer from being put on the rear tires. If the boat is on your trailer and the trailer...

  • Can Slightly Shorter Double-Eye Trailer Leaf Springs Be Used in Place of Slipper Springs
    Spring # SP-169275 being slightly off from the existing hanger spacing you have now would require welding on new hangers on a single axle trailer. The end of the spring that uses the shackle strap and is not secured to the hanger alone should be slightly beyond the center of the hanger like in the picture I have included. There are fundamental differences between slipper spring hangers and double-eye spring hangers though and you may need to replace the hangers you have. New ones should...

  • Leaf Spring Suspension Recommendation for 42 x 48 inch Trailer
    Basically you would need to replace the rear hanger with a double eye style hanger, use a shackle strap and then get the appropriate leaf spring. The lightest capacity spring we have is the part # SP-169275 which you referenced. For the price the best option is to just replace all of the hangers and use the kit part # APS1 which comes with everything you'd need and would work great.

  • Bushing Recommendation for Trailer Leaf Springs to Give Inner Diameter of 1/2 inch
    We have bushings that have 1/2 inch inner diameters that would fit the leaf spring part # SP-169275 that you referenced to match what you need as part # TRBU11506. This would fit the leaf spring and give you the inner diameter that you need.

  • Replacement Trailer Leaf Spring Recommendation for 1992 Fleetwood Terry Resort
    The 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 2,000-lb Trailer Axles # SP-169275 that you referenced would be perfect. This spring is for an axle rating of 2,000 lbs which it sounds like your axle is rated at and is the correct length. Springs tend to stretch over time so yours being 20-3/4 inches is about right since these are 20-3/8 inch.

  • Are the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Springs # SP-169275 Sold Individually or in Pairs
    The 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-169275 that you referenced is sold individually. So if you needed 2 springs for one axle you would need to order a quantity of 2. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out also.

  • Leaf Spring Recommendation for a 6 x 8 Trailer
    The closest leaf spring we offer to what you described would be the Leaf Spring part # SP-169275. This is a double eye spring that is 20-3/8 inches in length and is designed for 2,000 lb trailer axles. The amount of springs isn't as important as the capacity of the springs. These should work well on your trailer and I would recommend you replace the springs on both sides of the trailer.

  • Suspension Enhancement for a 2005 Aljo 22.5 Tandem Axle Trailer
    Leaf springs can end up stretching a little over time which is why it is very important to make sure that the 20-3/8" measurement from center eye to center eye for the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-169275 is compatible with your current suspension setup. If it will fit then there is no reason why you cannot use it. If you have two 2,000-lb axles on your trailer that means that the total weight capacity of your axles is 4,000 lbs (granted your tires are rated for at least that much)....

    Replacement leaf springs we offer, like # SP-169275 that works on 2000-lb axles, include the required nylon bushings in the spring eyes. We also offer these as separate replacement parts. Shackle straps can be re-used so long as their holes are not out-of-round (egg-shaped) from wear. You do not have to replace them just because you're changing out the springs. I have linked the two pages for all spring bushings and shackle links that we offer. Just click on the filters on each page...

  • Should Equalizer Sit Level on Tandem Axle 5 Ton Trailer
    For the most part the axles/equalizer should be level provided the tires and trailer are level. From the picture that you provided, the angle of the equalizer isn't something that I would be concerned about since the rear tires are up on a piece of lumber and not sitting level.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Tandem Trailer Axles Where One Is Closer to Trailer Frame than Other
    It sounds like your trailer isn't sitting totally level when hooked up to your tow vehicle. Does the front of the trailer sit higher than the rear? Judging by the angle of the equalizer in the picture you sent me it looks to be nose high. If so, then you would need to go with a ball mount that has more drop to allow it to sit level when you are towing. Check out the help article I attached on how to pick out the correct rise/drop ball mount to tow trailer level.

    Leaf springs are most often 1-3/4-inches wide but larger widths can also be found, up to 3-inches for very heavy-duty suspensions. We do not offer any leaf springs in a 1-1/2-inch width.
