Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Suspension - Leaf Spring Suspension - 28-5 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the front, center, or rear hanger for double eye springs. This hanger can be used as a front hanger on single axle applications and it can be used as a front, center, or rear hanger on tandem or triple axle applications. It's designed to fit 1 3/4 inch wide double eye springs with 9/16 inch diameter eyes. It will work with a 9/16 inch diameter bolt. Your hardware is sold separately. The units made from a sturdy steel construction that measures around 3/16 of an inch thick. It is a weld on application so it would get welded directly to the trailer frame. The holes on the top are not for a bolt on installation.

These holes are for if the installer would like to use button welds instead of or in addition to welding around the hanger. The height measurement for a hanger is taken from the center of the mount hole to the top of the hanger so for this particular unit it's going to give us a height measurement of 3 1/4 inches. The overall length of the unit edge to edge going this direction we're looking at a measurement of 3 inches. The overall height, that's going to give us a height of around 3 13/16 of an inch. When it comes to the width, measuring the external width first, that's going to measure about 2 3/8, internal width is going to measure about 1 7/8 - 1 15/16 of an inch. Then all the holes on the unit are going to have a diameter of 9/16 of an inch. That's going to do it for today's look at the front, center, or rear hanger for double eye springs..

I rebuilt the under carriage of my older trailer and purchased parts from etrailer. I replaced single leaf spring with their 5 leaf springs and used their heavy duty suspension kit and heavy duty hangers. Everything works great and would recommend etrailer parts to anyone. Great prices and great and friendly service.

Really like dealing with e-trailer, but am rather disappointed with the Hangers I ordered. They were smashed so hard in the die press during manufacture, that I am concerned about stress cracks. I attached 2 pics, and you can see the steel was slammed so much that it literally pinched it over a sixteenth of an inch at the base of the ears. Sad thing is, I don't have alot of time, and am forced to use them. I hope they don't break. The hangers I got in a previous kit seemed fine. I wonder why these should be different.

I have built several trailers in the past and I am currently building a tilt bed car trailer. I have made several purchases from etrailer.com They are great people to deal with and all of the products that I have purchased have met or exceeded my expectations. The spring hangers are well formed with no distortion and true to specifications. Highly recommend etrailer.com

The spring hangers I ordered are a fine product. I was planning to use some existing rectangle tube to make my own, but what with time constraints, I decided to order these from etrailer. I am glad I did. I couldn't have made them any nicer, I would have only burned time trying. I could have made them as good, yes. I have the tools to do so. But I could not have made them as nice as these in a short period of time. Great purchase, and it allowed me to work on other aspects of the trailer while these shipped. Shipping was quick too, all around a great deal.

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension

  • Lifting a Utility Trailer for Compatibility with Lifted Jeep
    You can raise your trailer about 2 more inches using the Correct Track Trailer Alignment and 2" Lift Kit - Single Axle # LC87120. Then you can also add longer hangers if you prefer. We do have long hangers like # 115919 which are the longest option we have. New springs or blocks is not a good option. You will probably need to use a ball mount with a drop to allow you to tow level. I've attached a link to the options and have also attached an article to help you with measuring for fit.

    What I recommend is to use leveling blocks such as # CAM44521 to compensate for the increased height of the camper. This set of blocks has 10 blocks and each is 17 inches long and 8-1/2 inches wide. Each block is 1-1/2 inches thick. I have included a link to a video review of these blocks for you. We also have kits for raising the height of the trailer. You may be able to use an over/under conversion kit if: The trailer leaf spring stack is currently mounted under the axles The trailer...

  • Can a Trailer Suspension Hanger Be Drilled Out so that a Larger Bolt Could Be Used

  • Thickness of the Steel Used in the Trailer Hanger part # 28-5
    The thickness of the steel of the Hanger part # 28-5 is 3/16 of an inch thick. The only way to get 6 of these exact hangers is to order a quantity of 6 of them. The # H248 comes with a set of taller center hangers. Center hangers are taller because of the shackle straps that hold the springs to the equalizer call for the center hanger to be taller so that the spring ends up sitting level. I attached a picture that hopefully let's you visualize that.

  • How to Lift Trailer Suspension 3-4 inches
    The best way to get the additional height you'd need is with an axle over under kit. This will move you axles underneath the leaf springs to gain you the height of your axle diameter and spring pack thickness. The diameter of your trailer axle will determine the size of the parts that you will need to order. If your axle is 3 inches diameter, the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit, # K71-385-00, would be a great choice and if your axle is 2-3/8 inch diameter you could...

  • What Happens if I Change the Size of Equalizers on 5th Wheel Camping Trailer
    When changing the size of the equalizer that is on a trailer, this will affect the size of hangers needed or the spacing of the hangers. For example, if you were to go with an equalizer that is one inch taller, you could keep the center hanger the same but would need one inch longer end hangers. If you replace your current equalizer with one that is longer, you would have two options. One would be to find shorter springs but the easier option would be to move the spring hangers further...

  • Recommendation for Increasing Axle to Trailer Frame Clearance
    Actually, what will solve your axle-to-frame clearance issue you are having the easiest would be to move the axles from being above the leaf springs to below the leaf springs. That will give you a great deal more clearance between the frame and the axle and won't require you to change anything about your current leaf spring hanger setup. The diameter of your trailer axle will determine the size of the parts that you will need to order. If your axle is 3 inches diameter, the Dexter Trailer...

  • Suspension Setup Recommendation for a Camper Trailer that Will be Taken Offroad
    Leaf springs aren't any more designed for off-road use than slipper springs. What I would recommend is a Timbren axle-less system as they offer the best ground clearance since they do not have an axle that runs across the trailer. I attached a page that has all of the Timbren systems we offer for you to check out. You will want to pick out the system with enough capacity for the weight of your trailer and the same bolt pattern as your trailer wheels. For even more ground clearance some...

  • Trailer Suspension Equalizer Tilted Up At one End
    The suspension in general on your trailer looks very worn. I would replace as much as I could on it to get it back to good working order. The problem with the equalizer cocked to one side like that can happen sometimes. It usually fixes itself when a load is put on the trailer. What I recommend though is to jack up the trailer and use a pry bar to get the leaf spring end up above the equalizer so the equalizer is straight and then let the trailer back down.

  • Can Trailer be Raised by Installing Longer Hangers
    Replacing your trailer's hangers with longer ones will raise it. Using # 28-5, which are 3-1/4 inch hangers, will likely give you the clearance you're looking for. Another option is an over-under kit. This moves the leaf springs over the axle lifting the trailer. It's often referred to as "flipping the axle' although this isn't the acutal process since trailer axles are bowed and cannot be install upside down. We carry two over-under kits depending on your axle size, part # K71-385-00...

  • How to Raise a Trailer for More Ground Clearance
    There are a couple of things that you can do to get more ground clearance for your new trailer. First, if the leaf spring stack is attached under the axle then you could use an over/under conversion kit. If the trailer has a 2-3/8 inch diameter round axle use # K71-384-00. If it has a 3 inch diameter round axle use # K71-385-00. This will move the leaf spring stack to the top of the axle and raise the trailer approximately the same amount as the axle diameter. These kits will only...

  • How to Gain Ground Clearance for a Travel Trailer that Hits the Driveway When Entering or Leaving
    There are a couple different ways to raise the ride height of your trailer, but before we choose the best option for you, we will want to take a look at a few things. First, it sounds like you are not towing with your trailer level so you do not hit your ball mount on the driveway. A trailer that is not level can create many problems such as ground clearance and trailer sway. If you have any sway control issues with your trailer, then I would recommend moving your leaf springs above...

  • Angle Of Shackles On Trailer Appear Wrong When Installing Leaf Springs
    Ff the springs you are installing are 25-1/4 inches, you would need to place the hangers between 24-3/4 and 25 inches apart. The shackle should be angled as the drawing shows in the attached helpful article, which should be toward the rear of the trailer. Make sure the trailer is not under load when you are installing the hangers and it never hurts to double check the measurements of the springs and the hanger locations as well.

You will then need to select from the filters which size you need.

  • 3,500 lb Leaf Spring and Hanger Kit Recommendation for Homemade Trailer
    You have a pretty interesting leaf springs setup on your trailer. It appears as if it is an automobile spring setup based on the length of the springs. That is a pretty small trailer, are you sure you want to go with such heavily rates springs? Going with higher rated springs will only give you additional spring capacity. If the axles or frame of the trailer aren't rated that high you don't effectively increase the capacity of the trailer. For a 3,500 lb spring the part # SP-212275...

  • What Would Cause a Trailer Equalizer to Flip Up to One Side
    Can you please send me a photo of your equalizer and how it is positioned on the axle? As long as the shackle straps are facing the correct direction (see photo) and the equalizer is not contacting the trailer frame then I don't see an issue. The weight on the trailer could be moreover one axle than the other which would cause the equalizer to flip up or the leaf springs could be a slightly different length. Unfortunately, measuring a trailer leaf spring is not exactly cut and dry. The...

  • Single Axle Trailer, Should the Hanger or Shackle Be on the Front of the Trailer Frame
    It sounds like you have a single axle trailer and are curious about whether or not to put the hanger like the part # 28-5 or a shackle in front on the trailer frame. We recommend you put the hanger in the front. The force from the bumps in the road not only pushes up on the suspension but it also pushes the axle to the rear of the trailer. Having the shackle in the rear allows that rearward shock get absorbed better as it allow for slight movement rearward.

    Although I wouldn't be able to give you the specs for what should be on a Grand Design (that's something only the manufacturer can tell you) I can tell you hangers which fit 1-3/4" leaf springs have an inner width that is close to 1-3/4" such as # 115917 which has a 1-13/16" inner width. There is not an adapter kit but if you are uncomfortable with the hanger and particularly the weld you can replace them with a new Hanger Kit such as # APT5 which uses 3-3/4"" tall hangers with 3" long...

  • Why Should Trailer Axles Be Close Together
    If you spread tandem axles to far apart you end up causing tire scrubbing which means that when you are making tight turns the axle with less weight on it will be skidding around on the pavement which cause premature tire wear. You want to have the axles as far apart as the spring and hanger kit recommends for the best performance. For more information on trailer suspensions setups check out the link I attached.

  • Raising the Height of a Tandem Axle Keystone Springdale Clearwater Trailer
    Using an over-under conversion kit such as # K71-384-00 or # K71-385-00 raises the height of a trailer which also raises its center of gravity. This makes the trailer more susceptible to sway but doesn't necessarily mean that sway will happen just from raising the trailer height. Its just a possibility. This is a job someone could do at one. But the new spring seats should be tack-welded in place which does require the proper welding equipment. You should not have to worry about realigning...

  • Will Increasing Spring Shackle Length Allow More Clearance Between Tires and Fenders
    Because a suspension is not static but is meant to articulate, going with longer shackle links won't provide the clearance you're looking for. The best course of action would be to raise the fenders to provide the proper clearance. At the very least, you want to see at least 3 inches of clearance between the tire and the underside of the fender with the suspension at full load. A better bet for gaining height would be to go with taller spring hangers. Keep in mind that the amount by...

But at the end of the day there are other ways to get more height on a trailer. Keep in mind that increasing trailer height changes the center of gravity on the trailer and can also change the tongue weight and lead to sway problems.

  • Can Shackle Straps Be Used at the Front and Back of a Leaf Spring
    Usually, you do not put shackle straps on the the front and back. One end the the spring should be suspended from a hanger. The reason that shackle straps are needed is to compensate for the extra drop of something like an equalizer or shorter hanger and to allow the spring to have the proper range of motion it requires. To use shackle straps in both places you would have to have hangers of different height. I have included a link to our FAQ article on double-eye trailer suspension that...

  • Can Leaf Spring Shackle Straps Be Installed Between Leaf Spring and Front Spring Hanger
    On a single axle trailer, the shackle straps must be to the rear of the axle, attaching the leaf spring to the spring hanger. This allows the axle to deflect upwards and to the rear if you hit a bump. If the shackle was at the front, the axle wouldn't be able to deflect in the correct direction, which would result in suspension components, likely the spring hangers to be damaged.

  • Can a Trailer with Axles Over Leaf Springs Be Lifted
    If your axles are already above the leaf springs the only way to increase the height of the trailer is to install taller hangers. You should note that this route isn't going to give you a dramatic lift. The biggest issue your setup has is the tall rims and tires on your trailer. Normally trucks with lifts or large wheels can't tow fifth wheel trailers easily. If you are within a couple inches of being able to tow your trailer level without overhang/bed rail interference you could...
