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.

  • How To Find Replacement Leaf Springs for a Palomino Sabre 5th Wheel 12,800 GVWR
    In order to find the correct replacement leaf spring for a trailer you will need to note the type (double eye, slipper), measure the unloaded length, and find the axle capacity. Since you have already determined that you have double eye leaf springs that measure 25-1/2" long then all we need to do is find the axle capacity which is listed on a sticker in the center of the axle tube. That said, I would be willing to bet you either have 5,200 lb or 6,000 lb trailer axles based on the...

  • Upgrading Dexter Double-Eye Spring 072-020-00
    In order to replace the leaf springs on a trailer you'll need to choose ones that have the same unloaded length from eye to eye. If you go with a set slightly longer or shorter you'd then need to swap out the shackle straps as well to help compensate for the difference in length. The closest we have to 24" is the 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring part # SP-222275 which will be an upgrade from the Dexter Double-Eye Spring 072-020-00. However, since it's slightly longer you'd want to use a slightly...

  • How To Choose the Correct Replacement Leaf Springs for 5,100 Lb Axle
    In order to choose the correct replacement leaf springs for a trailer you'll need to know the type (double eye/slipper), axle capacity, and unloaded length. The 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring part # SP-222275 for example measures 24-7/8" long, has double eye ends, and has a 5,300 lb capacity. I have attached a full list of options below.

  • Replacement 24-7/8" Long Leaf Springs for 5,000 Pound Axles
    To replace your existing leaf springs the 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-222275 will work perfectly. This leaf spring stack measures right at 24-7/8" from eye to eye (center to center) and its designed for 5,300 pound axles (which will work without issue on your 5,000 pound units). For a U-bolt kit I recommend the Redline # APUBR-8, which includes four 7" long U-bolts, two U-bolt plates, and the needed 1/2"-20 hex nuts. I have attached a couple short video reviews on these products...

  • Leaf Spring Recommendation for Trailer with 5,200 lb Axles
    Your best option would be to go with the 5,300 lb leaf springs as ideally you match the capacity exactly but if you can't then you'd go for next capacity higher. This ensures you aren't limiting the weight capacity of the trailer by the suspension and you still get soft enough suspension that it does cushion the ride. So for that we have the # SP-222275 which has a 5,300 lb capacity and measures 24-7/8 inches in length from spring eye to spring eye.

  • What Are the Correct Replacement Leaf Springs for 6,000 lb Axle
    There are leaf springs available with measurements close to 25" from center of spring eye to center of spring eye, though the correct one is going to depend on your axle capacity, which should be stamped onto the axle itself. Knowing this information is going to be important to get you the correctly rated springs. The options for you are going to be 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-222275 which is for 5,300 lb axles and is 24-7/8" from center of spring eye to center of spring eye. Please...

  • Recommendation to Replace Double Eye Leaf Springs on Montana 5th Wheel Trailer
    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...

    The E-Z Flex suspension system like part # K71-652-00 will help absorb road shock and may be just what you need on your 24 ft Cargomate trailer. These equalizers measure 5-1/4 to 6-1/4 inches long (measured from the center of one eye to the center of the other eye). These include the bolts, shackle links and rubber equalizers. Upgrading to a heavier spring will normally make the ride a bit stiffer. The leaf springs we offer for a 5300 lb axle is part # SP-222275. This spring measures...

  • Replacement Suspension Parts for Tandem Axle Stock Trailer
    You will want to completely remove one of the double-eye leaf springs from your trailer suspension to measure its eye-to-eye length when it is not under any tension. Also, note that if it is very old and very worn the spring may have actually elongated slightly. Well-used leaf springs can stretch from use and it is not unusual to find a very worn spring is as much as 1/2-inch longer than when it was new. You may find that the new matching springs for your axle rating are a little shorter...

  • Hanger Spacing Recommendation for Tandem Axle with Leaf Springs SP-222275

  • Replacement 7-Leaf Double Eye Spring 25-1/8" Long
    In most cases, leaf springs will stretch out over time as they wear so when you look for a replacement it will be shorter than the existing. It's also important to note that the number of leaves isn't a great guide for capacity since these leaves can have different thicknesses. The best match we offer with what was provided is the 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring part # SP-222275. I would verify the axle capacity does not exceed 5,200 lbs but aside from that you should be good to go.

  • Will the 6-Leaf 24-7/8" Long Leaf Springs Be Able To Replace 25-1/4" Leaf Springs
    As leaf springs wear out over time, they will elongate. Therefore, the correct replacements will likely be shorter in overall length. If you measured 25-1/4" unloaded then a 24-7/8" long leaf spring would likely work well. Therefore, the part # SP-222275 you're looking at will be a direct drop-in replacement. You will be able to reuse your existing shackle straps and equalizers.

  • 2007 Flagstaff 176 ST Leaf Springs Replacement with Higher Capacity
    To go with a higher rated leaf spring you'd have to go with a 5,300 lb axle leaf spring part # SP-222275 which happens to be 24-7/8 inches long. You might have to cut off your older hangers and move them slightly closer though since your springs are longer. We don't have anything that matches closer at this time.

  • Replacement Leaf Springs for 1998 Coachmen Catalina 364 TBS
    Based on the weight capacity you mentioned seeing on the spec sheet the best option for a leaf spring would be the part # SP-222275 which is for a 5,300 lb axle but is a bit shorter at 24-7/8 inches which is more common on the higher capacity axles. So then for a U-bolt kit you'd want the part # CE23003 which fits the 3 inch round axles which are the size of 5,200 lb axles. It will probably make the most sense to go with a new hanger kit too since the leaf springs are a shorter and...

    More than likely your trailer would use a 5300lb leaf spring like the 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 5,300-lb Trailer Axles - 24-7/8" Long # SP-222275. As long as the rating of the spring matches or slightly exceeds your 5000lb axle rating you will not have an issue, but you will need to confirm the length of your current spring.

    Since you pulled your old one out and found it to be 24-7/8 inches the correct replacement spring would be the part # SP-222275 which is 24-7/8 inches long and has a 5,300 lb axle capacity. Leaf springs tend to stretch slightly as they wear out since they flatten slightly which is why new springs will be slightly shorter than old ones.
