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.

Broken spring on our 33 foot Salem trailer halted our vacation. etrailer had the exact spring replacement for our Salem (used the 'select vehicle' guide), and I received them within 2 days of ordering as promised. Did the installation myself and found them to be an exact fit - glad I ordered extra hanger bolts. Our vacation is back on! Thank you for all your help!!




by:

Good item fit was direct replacement for my original leaf springs.




by:

Perfect fit, easy to install, nice upgrade on a 2018 Tracker Bass Boat trailer that originally had just a single taper leaf.




by:

Looks like HD Quality. Easy install and perfect fit. I replaced all four on my tandem and it took about 30 minutes per side to install. Now getting the 25 year old original parts off the trailer frame and axles is a chapter in its self. I ordered the Never Fail bushings and hardware kit, u-bolt kit, along with new equalizers to go with the new springs. Good thing too because every thing was worn badly. The new parts gave me at least 2 more inches of space between the frame and the axles. The true test will be when I load it up with logs and hit the road. I added some pics to give you an idea of what I had before and 1 after.




by:

Positive ExperienceI recommend etrailer. the price was better than I'd seen locally or online, although it happens that the size and type I needed was a particularly good deal. The service and shipping were surprisingly prompt, and when the box arrived, everything was as advertised.
While replacing four leaf springs is about as much fun as shopping for socks, etrailer at least made ordering a positive experience.
I actually found the video helpful as well. I've included a picture of what mine actually looked like. A breaker bar is a very handy tool.


Comments
I have a question, Ive. Measured my springs to be 26. 14 to the center of each bolt, however the springs are nearly gone so can I safely say that my springs measurement should be 25 1/4?

by:

Price was great, will see how long they last, have yet to find a set from A manufacture that doesn’t use junk steal. These are notorious for breaking more than five years see what happens




by:

One of the original leaf springs snapped on my Big Tex 35SA 3500lb trailer. Arrived in 3 days and was a perfect Fit! Thank you.




by:

I make my living with my 2008 cargo trailer. On the way to a job, my leaf springs broke on one side and as I nursed the trailer back home afterwards, the other side broke. I ordered all the parts needed from etrailer using their measuring guidelines to get the correct leaf springs and hardware. Having never replaced leaf springs before made me nervous but given the fact that etrailer's website is very comprehensive, I found the correct parts that I needed easily. My parts were delivered quickly and I had the old broken springs off and the new ones installed and was back on the road with only a couple days of down time. I'm very happy with etrailer and will recommended them again and again.




by:

Installed easily, as expected, and are so far working fine on my single axle 18x8 dove tail utility trailer. Just hauled about a ton of pavers with no problems. Springs are made in China.




by:

Replaced both leaf springs, hangers, and shocks on a Dexter 3500lb axle. Entire process took just over an hour.




by:

Perfect fit for my trailer. Seem to be well built. Though they are stamped China. But what you gonna do right. If you need them, you need them. Been on the trailer for a couple months now. And seem to be holding up to the abuse.




by:

Enjoyed everything about the experience. The product was what I thought was a really good price. The shipping cost was fair and shipped quickly and even increased but decreasing shipping time for no extra charge. Product was ready and easy to install




by:

Just what I needed, but more importantly the service was fantastic as usual.




by:

Not much to say about this. I broke a spring while traveling through heavy road construction on I-80 in Northern Nevada. I ordered a new spring from etrailer on the Internet. It arrived in two days and I discovered I had ordered the wrong size when I tried to install it. I immediately contacted etrailer and they sent a new spring immediately. It arrived in three days later. It was an exact replacement and bolted right in and I was back on the road. What else can I say? Great product and great service!




by:

It is always a pleasure do business with etrailer




by:

I purchased a set of these leafs for a utility trailer and they worked perfectly.

A year later and holding up just fine. I installed these springs on my ATV trailer that gets a ton of work literally. With the stones and firewood Ive hauled, they have worked just fine.

I need new springs for a cargo trailer i am converting to a portable observatory for my telescope. and they had the part and it came in the mail in good time. the springs fit perfectly. only regret is I need more trailer parts to complete the project and I could have saved on shipping had I ordered it all at once.
Thank you for helping get the order quicker without extra coast.




by:

First I want to thank you for NOT sending out a review question 2 days after shipping the product !
Everything for my new springs came in a timely manner and were as advertised. I did have to call because the springs I ordered were too stiff. No problem I returned them and got the ones i should have ordered. Trailer rides much better than when it was new.




by:

It was a great investment. I follow a group of trailer owners who have posted their factory springs breaking/snapping. I like that we can grease them before long trips. The springs gave me the peace of mind I needed before heading out on a cross country trip.

Fantastic!

Easy, straight forward order. Springs work great!




by:

These guys made ordering easy! No long drawn out questions. Shipping was fast and right. If I ever need anything of this nature again I will definitely use them again.




by:

I found etrailer online when I searched for leaf springs for my landscape trailer. I am very pleased at the fast delivery and wide range of good quality trailer products and the helpful knowledge etrailer has on it's website. I replaced my leaf springs on my trailer. The new springs I ordered was a perfect fit.




by:

After discovering a flat spring on my travel trailer, 2000 miles away from home. I called etrailer and consulted with Cailee (customer service) to ensure I selected the correct size spring, she was awesome! She was very knowledgable of the product, handled my complete order, ensured it shipped the same day so I could get it installed and not delay my trip.

The spring actually arrived a day early! Install went great, was easy and fitment was perfect!

Thank you to Cailee for all the help!!!! I will shop etrailer again in the future, they've truly earned my business!




by:

Springs arrived when they said it would. Fit perfectly. Have not taken the trailer out yet - tomorrow




by:

I have used other springs from other suppliers but these hold up better with less failure on our ranch.

  • How Are Trailer Leaf Springs Weight Capacities Rated
    There is usually two capacities listed on a leaf spring. The spring capacity and the axle capacity. For the 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-212275 that you referenced it has a spring capacity of 1,750 lbs meaning that the individual spring can handle 1,750 lbs. The axle capacity is 3,500 lbs meaning that when you use two springs the combined capacity is 3,500 lbs. I attached an FAQ article on trailer suspension for you to check out also.

    The best way to determine the weight capacity of your leaf springs would be to check the weight rating of the axle on your trailer.

Also, the axle could have a tag or plate on it that will list the weight capacity. You can also tell the weight capacity of the axle by measuring the diameter of the axle. A 2,000-lb axle will have an...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Pulls Nose High Are Spacers Available to Level with My 2011 2500 Dodge Ram Diesel
    The first thing I would do in your situation is take the truck and trailer to your RV dealer and have them check out your setup. Typically 5th wheel trailers are set up to tow a bit pin high to allow for more weight transfer to the rear most axle or axles on the trailer. If possible, you can adjust the trailer pin box closer to the underside of the trailer loft, or reduce the height of your fifth-wheel hitch head in the bed of your truck.

  • Troubleshooting Tandem Axle Double-Eye Trailer Suspension Rear Shackle Strap That Moves
    I suspect the problem with your rear shackle straps coming out of the correct position on rough roads occurs when the trailer is unloaded or at least when there is little or no weight on the rear. If this is the case you can either put some weight on the back of the trailer or slow down (I do know that's no fun!). My technical contact at Dexter axle confirmed that there really is no cause for concern with the shackle strap moving like this as it will naturally re-position itself when under...

  • Which Leaf Springs for my 5x10 Trailer with a 3,500 Pound Axle
    There is a lot of variance in how much a spring will stretch. A trailer that carries a lighter load or is not used frequently will not have as much spring stretch. The springs you were looking at, part # PR626, are made for trailers with 4,500 pound axles. It might result in a bit rougher of a ride. The double eye springs we carry for a 3,500 pound axle are 25-1/8 inch long. At six years of age, I can see the springs stretching 3/4 of an inch. We have two springs that would work for you,...

  • Picking Out Replacement 3,500 lb Spring For Trailer
    The springs allow the trailer to sit level even though they have differing amount of leaves because the axle sits on top of the spring and the leaves are added to the bottom of the springs. That being said we strongly recommend you run the same springs on both sides of the trailer and replace them in pairs. What you would then want to do is measure the springs you have when there isn't a load on the trailer. If 26 inches is about what you have then the correct spring would be the part...

    It is difficult to accurately measure the length of a leaf spring when it is still under tension in the suspension system. You will get a more accurate eye-to-eye length measurement if you remove the spring from the suspension. The leaf springs we offer for 3500-lb-rated axles come in several lengths, including the longest at 27-inches. While it is possible for springs to become elongated from use a 3-inch gain in length is not possible. Well-worn springs can become up to 3/4-inch longer...

It is also possible that they were 25-1/8-inches long since this length is common for 1-3/4-inch wide double-eye springs on 3500-lb axles.
