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..

These hangers are great for the center. They provide just enough clearance for your equalizer. Because of the length and being that I am a welder I added a support inside the hanger to keep them rigid!


Megan was very helpful with helping get this order together and communicating with parts being shipped from other locations. Thank you so very much Megan!!!!


great product and your staff was very knowledgeable and helpful I have told many friends about it and I will use your company again when needed


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.


Good product. Fair prices. Supper fast shipping. Great service and communication.


Very convenient ordering product


worked perfect!




Fantastic product. Just wish your shipping was faster


Just what I ordered and got here fast


Product was high quality, arrived quickly and worked well!


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.

Still satisfied with the products I bought through etrailer! Works great!


Etrailer is always wonderful to deal with. From full suspension kits to simple hangers, i always get more than i expect.


Service from E trailer is outstanding. Everyone does there utmost to insure that you are more than satisfied with the product and service.
Having said that, I need to be honest about the hangers I received. I have purchased these same hangers 3 times and in each case the holes for the 9/16" bolts were drilled off of perpendicular as they should be. It is not enough to create a problem but it is clearly not the way the holes should be drilled.


This bracket is better than the original factory one!


E-Trailer always has what I need good products good service fast shipping at reasonable prices!!


I have never used these to comment. I carry them in case of a catastrophic failure, to have on hand to do a road repair.


I purchased the parts I needed to repair the suspension on an old Lil-Rider trailer. Knowing else had anything close to what I needed. The parts came quickly and we're exactly as advertised.


I have built several trailers in the past and I am currently building a tilt bed car trailer. I have made several purchases from 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


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.


Delivery was as promised and all parts were there. Great service. Raised 5th wheel 4 3/4 inches so it would be level when hooked up to 2016 Ram 2500.


As usual, etrailer does the job and faaast shipping!!!
I will use these spring brackets to move my trailer axles forward and reduce tongue weight.


Great service, fantastic shipping and delivery. All pieces of the suspension repair of my tandem trailer fit perfectly! I have another trailer to repair and I will be ordering my parts from etrailer.


Easy to install and and the trailer I rebuilt is awesome now.

Robert P.


The unit is still going strong!


I ordered two trailer leaf hangers and a 10,000 trailer jack. The price was as cheap as I could find anywhere and super fast shipping! Thanks
Will be a return buyer.

  • Replacement Hangers, Equalizer, U-Bolts, Springs For a 2015 Keystone Carbon 327 5TH Wheel Toy Hauler
    Thank you the pictures are a great help. I recommend using the MORryde AllTrek 4000 Equalizers # MR29DR with the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit for Triple Axle Trailers - 3-1/8" # MR26ZR for your 2015 Keystone Carbon 327 5th wheel camper. These straps are much thicker than the thin straps you got from the factory so they will not elongate like your current straps which now measure 1/8" longer. We have the 3-1/4" Hanger # 28-5 which will work as a replacement for your front, center or rear...

  • Should You Replace All 3-1/4 Inch Hangers With 3-5/8 Inch Center Hangers
    Hey Ryan, You want to keep all your hangers the same size they were previously or the suspension could get out of whack (to use a less than scientific term). So assuming the equalizer and shackles of the # AP233 are the same size you had, then replace your 3-1/4" hangers with the same size, and you can get that with the Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Tall # 28-5.

  • Recommended Lift Kit for a Triple Axle Trailer
    No, I am sorry we do not sell the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit for Triple Axle Trailers item # MR86ZR with the hangers from the Triple-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit item # APTT5. I checked with MORryde and they don't offer kits like that either. You can buy the hangers separately with item # 28-5 but it wouldn't be cost effective plus you would still need equalizers. Another option other than replacing your hangers is to use the Correct Track Trailer Alignment and Lift Kit item # RR55QX....

  • Is There a Weight Capacity for the Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Tal
    The Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Tall part # 28-5 does not have a weight capacity nor can I say I have seen this on any leaf spring hangers really but there will be no issues with a 5,200 lb axle. When you get up around 10,000 axles you'll start to see wider springs which would then rule these out as they are for the standard 1-3/4".

  • Recommended Hangers and Shackles for Building Tandem 7,500 Pound Axle Trailer
    I recommend using the Dexter Heavy-Duty Suspension Kit for Tandem-Axle Trailers - 1-3/4" Wide Double Eye Springs # K71-359-00. This kit has heavy duty shackles, wet bolts, and also equalizers with built-in grease zerks. This will give you 33" axle spacing. Although there are no heavy duty hangers, I would use longer hangers for additional clearance. You can use the Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Tall - 9/16" Bolt Hole # 28-5 in the front/rear and then the Front/Center/Rear...

  • Trailer Hangers for E-Z flex Triple Axle Kit
    The EZ FLex kits like the # K71-657-00 are designed to work with standard trailer hanger kits. If you need hangers you could use the part # 28-5 for all of the hangers that your trailer needs and you'd be set as the EZ Flex kit comes with everything else you'd need.

  • Recommended Suspension Hangers for Use with Dexter Suspension Kit K71-360-00
    There are different hangers that you could use with the Dexter heavy duty suspension kit # K71-360-00. To achieve 4-1/2 to 5 inches clearance between the trailer frame and axles you could use 6 of hanger # 28-5. To achieve 3-1/2 to 3-1/4 inches clearance you could use 4 of front/rear hangers # 115917 and 2 of center hanger # 115918 but these are usually found on lower capacity axles. These are going to be the most common set ups and should work well for you.

  • How To Fix Tires Hitting Fenders After Installing New Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers
    To get your Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizer lower so the tires on your 2-17 Nitro Z19 boat trailer are not hitting the fenders I recommend having taller center hangers installed. Base on the pictures you provided it looks like your current hangers are pretty short. You will want to measure from the frame to the center of the hole in the hanger, and then use one of the options mentioned below as a replacement to get the clearance back. The available options are the 3-1/4" tall # 28-5, 3-5/8"...

  • 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.

  • How Do You Measure The Height Of An Equalizer?
    The height of your equalizer is measured from the center of the horizontal mounting holes, to the center of the upper mounting hole as shown as the 2" measurement in the included diagram of the # TREQ104. If you can send me this measurement, and if you are wanting a standard or cushioned equalizer I would be happy to recommend the correct replacement for you. I included a video of the # TREQ104 for you to take a look at.

  • Will Dexter E-Z Flex Equalizers Fit Same Hangers as MORryde Suspension System
    You definitely can replace the MORryde suspension system on your 2011 Carriage trailer with the Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension System, like part # K71-652-00, as they both install on a hanger like the part # 28-5. From what I can tell it looks like the MORryde suspension shouldn't flex when under load so you should be able to take an accurate measurement and compare it with the linked Dexter E-Z Flex systems. Just let me know what that measurement is and I can help you find the correct one.

  • Dimensions of the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Slipper Spring System
    I went out to our warehouse and measured one of the Roadmaster Comfort Ride Slipper Spring System like part # RM-2460-2570 for you. The box is 3-1/4" wide and the opening is 3-3/4" long x 2-3/4" wide. I have attached a photo of these measurements for you as well. According to my contact at Roadmaster, the center leaf spring hanger will need to be between 3" - 3-1/2" from the bottom of the frame to the center of the bolt hole. If the hanger you have will not work with these measurements...

  • 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...

  • 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 go...

  • How Can I Get More Ground Clearance if my Axles are Already Converted Under the Springs
    From that point the only option you will have to raise your camper would be to add longer spring hangers. Depending on your setup you can get a couple of inches out of these. Measure yours from the frame to the bolt hole and get longer ones like the Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs part # 28-5 that is 3-1/4" tall. The Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs Kit part # APT4 is also a great way to achieve this and refresh all of the other suspension components.

  • Compatibility of Trailer Suspension Hanger on 2 x 2 Inch Frame
    The CE Smith Front/Center/Rear Hanger Bracket for Double-Eye Springs - Galvanized Steel - Bolt On # CE14035G40 measures 3 inches wide and the center on center bolt holes are 1-5/8 inches. Because of this it will not fit and you would instead need the weld on Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Tall - 9/16" Bolt Hole # 28-5.

  • Availability of 1-1/8 Inch Tall Rear Hanger For 1-3/4 Inch Wide Trailer Leaf Springs
    The # 93003-3X rear hanger measures just over 1-1/4 inch in height (measured from the center of the bolt hole to the top of the hanger) at 1-9/32 in height which is absolutely close enough to the 1-1/8 inch height you were looking for that the articulation of the suspension will make up for that miniscule height difference.

  • Upgrading a Dexter Torsion Axle to a Heavier Duty Option
    We would definitely be able to upgrade to a higher capacity Leaf Spring or Silent Ride set up. That being said, we do not carry torsion axles, so we do not have a bolt on upgrade available. The axle # 8327820-EB would upgrade you to 5,200 pounds per axle, but with the spring seats being 74 inches from center to center, it is pretty specific as to what it fits. As you do not have any spring seats on your current axle, you would need to measure from center of your frame to the center of...

    To attach your axles to the the frame of the car hauler you will need the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs # AP233-H248. This kit includes all the hangers, equalizers, shackle straps, shackle bolts and nuts to fit your axles. I have linked an article below that will help you with positioning the axles on your trailer to ensure that you have the correct percentage of tongue weight when towing to be safe.

  • How Are Shackle Straps Supposed to Be Positioned When The Trailer Is Loaded?
    As far as repositioning the hole in your hanger, that will depend on how much longer the new leaf springs are versus the stock spring. Say for example the new springs are 1" longer than stock when measured center eye to center eye across. I would say split that distance in half. So moving the hole out 1/2" will get you to where the shackles should be at an appropriate angle. Adding a bit more arc and leaves will add to your ride height. As far as the shackle strap position, there is not...

  • Lifting My 5th Wheel With Axles Under Leaf Springs
    You will not be able to use a lift kit since your axles are already under the springs. Your only option is to go with taller hangers. You will have to measure the height of your existing hangers and use the weblink I will be including below to find the size hangers you need. When you are measuring the height of your suspension hangers, such as product # 28-5, please remember that distance is from the top of the hanger to the center of bolt hole. I have also included a product description link.

  • What Hangers Do I need For My Heartland Cyclone 5th Wheel Toy Hauler?
    The CRE3000 Equalizers # MR59ZR are a great choice for an equalizer upgrade, but there is not a specific hanger set that would go with them. I can definitely help and point you in the right direction. Now, I do not have a way to know specs on your hangers based on a make and model of camper. If only it were so easy! When replacing hangers it is important that we get the height of the hanger correct. This was we can retain the factory ride height. For example part # 28-5 is a very common...

  • 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.

  • Can Thicker Leaf Springs be Used to Raise Height of Trailer
    Sometimes it is possible to install leaf springs that have more leaves but depending on what you already have installed you may only be able to add taller hangers like the 3-1/4" tall # 28-5. If you can give me some more information on how many leaves you currently have on your leaf springs and what the eye-to-eye measurement is as well as your axle weight rating I can see if we have leaf springs that you can use. I have also attached links to our selections of hangers and leaf springs...
