Overall dimensions

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.

Leaf spring dimensions exactly as stated. Good website to easily find what you need. Shipped day after order was placed and received good communications on delivery.


After a lot of searching I found this company that let me find out exactly the part number for the suspension springs of my Viking pop-up camper. Had a broken spring and tried some local springs but was never satisfied as the springs in a bump would lock-up. Now it trails normal instead of jumping excessive.

Very well. With these springs the trailer is less jumpy as it was with store bought springs. Makes a differwence in towing.

Exactly what I needed, fit perfectly on my boat trailer. There is many different sizes so make sure you measure good so you can order the correct ones.


Great service. Got here a day earlier than stated. Seemed like a little overkill on the box size but no complaints since shipping was free.


Got just what we needed and got it fast!


The new leaf springs fit perfect and made my old camp trailer set level again. It also tracks nicely again on the road.


I am always more than satisfied with buying any product from Never have to worry about paying too much, delivery is always prompt and the information supplied on each product I buy is the best I have seen anywhere I've made a purchase online. No need to search other sites.


I would order again from them


My 4x6 Homesteader Trailer was sagging and the tires when loaded were kissing the inside of the fenders.
I called Tim at and he was helpful in locating the correct 3 leaf 20” leaf springs with all hardware.
When removing the old springs I noticed one of the Eye brackets was tearing off the frame so first we had to take a piece of steal plate and weld the new piece in place, not to take any chances we welded the other side also.

The new hardware and Leafs all went into place just fine and now my trailer is sitting were it should be.


The customer service was outstanding. Thru the process of identifying what I needed to ordering and delivering the products I dealt with multiple Customer Service Representatives (CSR). Everyone of them were helpful and courteous. I really appreciated the follow up after my initial contact with CSR. Once the product was ordered I was kept up to date on the status of the order thru regular emails from an etrailer CSR. The parts arrived as they promised, and a CSR even followed up with me after that. Great service, keep it up!


This was an amazing interaction: the woman who helped me couldn’t have been nicer and got me to the correct parts, they arrived within 36 hrs., and everything fit!
Wow! Just about perfect. Thanks.


All products were delivered promptly and were as expected. I already completed half of the trailer leaf spring replacements (one side) and will wrap-up tonight. All is going well, and I appreciate that the product descriptions on etrailer's website were very detailed (dimension, how to measure) such that I had confidence that I was ordering just what I needed. Great products and service.


These springs arrived exactly as ordered and fit fine. Shipping took an extra 5 days due to problems with the carrier - but no fault of etrailer. My only suggestion would be to add the dimensions to the etrailer web page.


Wonderful customer service assistance with the technical side of the suspension parts I required.


Great product


fast shipping


Great customer service. As a return customer, the service and ease of ordering and receiving my order was perfect.


Worked as should .


Ordering was easy. Delivery was precise. The part worked well for us and we’ll have to see about how long it will last.






Faster than expected delivery and great fit.

  • Leaf Spring Replacement for 1994 Layton Skyline 19ft 5th Wheel Trailer
    Thank you for providing those measurements! From what I was able to determine, it looks like the total dry weight of your 1994 Layton Skyline 19ft 5th Wheel is 3321-lbs and with tandem axles, they would likely be 2000-lb capacity. Because leaf springs tend to flatten out as they get older and more worn out (making them longer), you're going to find that your measurements aren't the exact length of springs you'll use; it's most important to get close to the length while using the correct...

  • Does the Dexter 072-017-00 Double Eye Leaf Spring Include Bushings
    It IS hard to make out in the photo, but if you look closely, you can see that the # 072-017-00 Dexter Double Eye Leaf Spring does indeed include the bushings as you can see in the provided photo. I've linked to a product description video featuring the # 072-017-00 Leaf Spring.

  • Replacement Leaf Spring to Replace Spring that Measures 21-3/8 inch
    We have a 21 inch long Dexter trailer leaf spring with part # 072-017-00 which would work great for you assuming the axle capacity matches what this was designed for. This leaf spring is for 2,000 lb trailer axles. As leaf springs break in/wear out they tend to stretch so yours being 21-3/8 inch would match great with this new spring that is 21 inches.

  • Are Dexter Axle Leaf Springs Made in the USA
    According to Dexter Axle their leaf springs are made in the US so I've linked our selection of those for you to filter through. If you can let me know the length of leaf spring you're needing to replace I'd be more than happy to see if we have one that fits your application! For example, the Dexter Axle Double Eye Leaf Spring # 072-017-00 measures 20-1/4" center-eye to center-eye when no tension is placed on it.

  • How Does Trailer Leaf Spring Get Measured to Pick Out Replacement
    When measuring a trailer leaf spring to pick out a replacement you'd need to measure from spring eye center to spring eye center with no weight on the spring. For example, the Dexter spring part # 072-017-00 would be correct replacement if the axle was a 2,000 lb axle and the measurement was right at 20-1/4 inches. You do need to factor in a bit of spring stretch since they tend to flatten over time. Around 1/4 inch is about correct.

  • Availability of 2 inch Wide Trailer Leaf Springs
    The 2 inch wide leaf springs aren't nearly as common as the 1-3/4 inch wide springs which are basically the industry standard now. We do have one 2 inch wide spring though with the part # 072-017-00 which is for a 2,000 lb axle and is 20-1/4 inches wide. If you need a different length/capacity let me know. It might be the simplest to just go with 1-3/4 inch wide spring which would require new hangers.

    We have 2,000 lb axle trailer leaf springs like the # 072-017-00 but to pick out the correct ones for your Keystone I'd need to know what length of leaf springs you need which you'd have to measure without a load on the springs. These are 21 inches long. The part # SP-169275 is 20-3/8 inches long, and # SP-113275 is 23-1/2 inches long.

    I have a complete replacement hanger and spring option for you, but unfortunately we do not offer any slipper leaf springs that are 2" wide x 21" long like that is on your trailer. In addition the spring manufacturers I checked with do not make such a spring. Your best bet is going with the Single-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Front, 1-1/4" Rear # APS4 with two leaf springs # SP-220275. You will need to remove your current hangers and have these hangers welded...

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Axle and Leaf Springs
    We can give it a shot! First, for the correct replacement axle for your trailer you will need to know the dimensions of your current axle's hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center; the other thing you need to know is the weight capacity of the axle you need, which should match or exceed the GVWR of your trailer. For example, the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam # T20BTR-6048 has a 2,000 lb capacity and measures 60 inches from hub face to hub face and 48 inches from spring center...

    Thank you for providing that information. In addition to the length you will also want to know the capacity of your axle so you can choose the correct leaf spring replacement. Assuming this is an older leaf spring, you will also need to account for it sagging over time which will elongate the spring. For a replacement we have 2 possible options for you.

    The locating pin in trailer leaf springs are roughly 1/2", and are a standard size between different brands of springs. To lift your trailer with leaf springs the best way is an over-under kit which moves your axle from above the leaf springs, to below which lifts the trailer by the diameter of the axle plus the height of the leaf spring stack. We offer a few kits depending on the diameter of your axle tube. If you have a 2-3/8" diameter axle you will need the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under...

  • Ideas for Smoothing Out Suspension of Nash 16t Travel Trailer
    As long as you for sure will never exceed 4,000 lbs of total trailer weight you could drop down to a lower capacity leaf spring for a 2,000 lb axle. For that we have the part # 072-017-00 which is 21 inches long or part # SP-169275 for 20-3/8 inches. Or another option you could go with is adding a shock kit to the axles like with the part # LC281255. This will do a great job smoothing out the ride quality as it would slow down the movement of the suspension. This fits 2-3/8 inch diameter...
