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 hooked 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Universal Group Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Springs - SP-230275

Hello everybody, this is [email protected] Today we take a look at this Dexter 26 and 5/8 inch long, four leaf slipper spring with the hook end for a 4,000 pound trailer axle. Now this slipper leaf spring axle, will act as part of your trailer suspension system. Provides an attachment point for your trailer's axle. And the multiple leaves will allow flexibility to absorb road shock, allows a nice smooth ride, reduces wear and tear on your trailer and will ensure a level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces. Now it does use pre mounted hangers or after market hanger kits, which we do sell separately on our website.

Those are required for installation of this spring. The eye of the spring, right on this end will attach to the hanger that's mounted on your trailer frame and the slipper end right here, this'll slide into your hanger or your equalizer. This is a sturdy steel construction. This one does have the nylon bushing included in the eye. The diameter with that bushing in there is 9/16ths of an inch.

This is for a quantity of one leaf spring. Now the spring capacity on this is 2000 pounds, So it is rated for axles of 4,000 pounds. Number of leafs on this is four leaves. And I want to give you a few measurements on there. First one is going to be the length of the spring.

And when they measured the length of the spring, that's going to be measured from the center of the spring eye to the end of the spring itself. So on this one, if I get our tape measure up and go center to the very end, it's 26 and 5/8 inches length. Now the other measurement is axle location. And basically your axle is going to be right here at the center here. So when you measure that, it's again going to be from the center of the spring eye to the middle of the spring.

So the measurement on this one is going to be right at 11 and a 1/2 inches. And the width on the spring itself is right at two inches. As you can see there's your hook end on your spring, and this is your eye end. But that should do it for the review on this Dexter 26 and 5/8th inch long, four leaf slipper spring with the hook end for a 4,000 pound trailer axle..

  • Determine Axle Rating by Measuring to Get Correct 2 Inch Wide Leaf Slipper Springs
    In general, you can measure the diameter of an axle tube to get the rating, though it is more of a guideline and the only way to know for sure is by some identifying marker on the axle and contacting the manufacturer. However, since that isn't a possibility for you, then measuring the tube is the best option, just know that it isn't a 100 percent guarantee. Here are the general ratings: - 1,000 lb – 2,000 lb Axles: 1-1/2 inch - 1-3/4 inch diameter - 3,500 lb Axles: 2-3/8 inch diameter -...

  • Tandem Slipper Spring Hanger Dimensions
    When you use the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit # AP216-H238 with the 4 Leaf Slipper springs part # SP-230275 the distance between the front hanger and the center hanger will be 30-1/2 inches, the distance from the center hanger to the rear hanger will also be 30-1/2 inches. This will put the axle centers at 36 inches apart.

  • Upgrading Tire Size and Suspension on a Homemade Hovercraft Trailer
    The wheels that are currently on your tires are 3-3/4 inches wide, but the width of the actual tire (section width) will be greater. The section width of your 4.80/4.00-8 tires is 4.6 inches. Moving up to a 6 inch wide, 10 inch diameter wheel like the Kenda 205/65-10 Tire and Wheel Combo 4 on 4 Bolt Pattern, # AM3H460, will have a section width of 8.07 inches. This will bring the tire approximately 1-3/4 inches closer to the trailer frame leaving a 1-3/4 inch gap. This will be plenty...
