The brackets in the kit were not square. Luckily we bought an extra set of brackets which were square.

It is unusual that the brackets are not square. I know that you have the extra set however we will still be in contact with you to have the brackets replaced.


Shipped fast looks good will be putting it on my trailer this weekend.



Awesome use it everyday for my work.


We summer at a remote cabin in the Gila Nat'l Forest above Silver City NM. The last 5 miles to the cabin is extremely rough and puts a lot of wear and tear on both my truck and my trailer that we use to transport water, food, building materials and supplies to the cabin on a twice a month schedule. I have had suspension springs break, blown tires and damaged coupler. I ordered this kit to replace the entire hanger assembly because of wear and tear, cracks and loose fittings. I had to re-enforce the frame and weld up some cracks and wear points. The kit was great and worked perfect. The trailer is now like new and will serve me for years to come.


Had what I needed to repair my trailer. Shipping was faster than expected. The kit should contain bushing for the springs as well. Also an option for the greaseable pins.


I bought the spring kit to put on my home built trailer that I put my old heavy slide-in camper on. It more than met my expectations. There was no sway at 75mph or on the 5 mile trail back to camp.


I think these Trailer spring hangers are working out very well. Can’t wait to test it out on the road. I’m building a 7000 lbs GVWR trailer to mount a generator on.


I'm building a trailer for a gutter machine from scratch. And the parts that I got from e-trailer are exactly what I needed, and on top of that they got to my house 3 days earlier than they were suppose to. I know where to order again if I need some more parts in near future ;) thank you guys


It was easy to install, and had all the parts I needed.
The trailer rolls down the road nice.
This helped me get a barn find trailer back on the road.


I received my order very fast. The quality is excellent and everything that I expected. What is also impressive is that if you have questions about setting up your axle kit, etrailer has printable instructions right on their website that will make installation simple.
I have built several trailers over the years and appreciate the quality and service provided by etrailer. I highly recommend this company and their products.


Excellent experience. My order shipped and arrived extremely fast and the customer support team was kind professional and promp in answering any questions I had.


All parts fit properly and arrived on t ime


Great parts. Easy installation. Website was easy to use and find what I was looking for. Order arrived quickly


Product was exactly as described. Used the info on website for location of mounts. Couldnt be happier.
Awesome customer service as well.


All parts were perfect fit. Quality hardware and performance.


Exactly what I needed for my trailer. Fast shipping!


Parts for perfectly. It has been a year and everything is working great and holding up well.


working good


My flatbed trailer is a 1998 and the suspension and wheels were suffering from Pa's use of salt brine on the roads. The wheels had holes rusted through them! Decided it was time to repair the trailer. Got new wheels and suspension parts from E-trailer. Got my parts fast at a good price and well on my way to having a reliable trailer again. Great service and will do business again!



Year later and trailer is still working great again. PA inspection will be due in a month and everything is still in good shape


Pics of trailer frame.


I had a trailer with a suspension that needed new bushing and rocker arm. I looked on line and decided on the parts I needed. I called my order in on Sunday evening and explained I needed the parts ASAP.
The parts were sent to UPS Sunday evening. I received the parts about 2:00 Wednesday. I have already installed the parts. The suspension is back like new now.



The product I used on my trailer are doing an excellent job. No problems so far. Thanks for the follow up


I have ordered from Etrailer a few times now, The service is always great and fast shipping. They have the best prices around. Where I live I have 24 miles of rough dirt road so am always replacing parts on my trailers. Their products hold up to the test of my road. Always a perfect fit too!

Frank L.


everything is still holding up very good! Thank you guys for the excellent service!


I didn’t receive all parts on original shipment. Box was partly open due to the box wasn’t big enough and that’s why it bust. After Tralee already tore part when found. I called to get replacement parts. That went well until I received what I was originally missing, and y’all sent me galvanized straps and I said to hell with it. Not going to keep waiting. I’ll paint over them. Not sure why my new order and the replacement straps couldn’t have been shipped together. But oh well I’ll wait several more days for part that was in stock in the same building probably to shopped late. Better luck next time

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.


The Trailer Hanger Kit shipped fast and was as described. Fit & finish were excellent. Great product. Made my 25 year old trailer like new again!



Heavy duty parts. Still going strong! Well made suspension parts. Shipped quickly. Perfect fit.


Everything I needed was included and fit as it should.


Donna helped me a great deal and made sure I ordered just what I needed and rushed the delivery so I could attend my event to meet Tim Mattis and team up to fight veteran suicide.

  • MoRryde CRE3000 Equalizers on 31 Inch Tandem Axle Spacing
    I just spoke with my rep at MORryde and she said that you are able to use the CRE3000 MORryde Rubber Equalizers for Tandem Axle Trailers - 33" Wheelbase - 8K item # MR87ZR on a tandam axle trailer with 31 inch spacing if your are using 24 inch leaf springs.

  • Troubleshooting Slanted Equalizer on Unloaded 7K Cargo Trailer
    Thank you for providing all of that information! From the photos and dimensions it looks like you have the suspension kit that's equivalent to the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit # APT5. For your axle and hanger spacing you need lead springs that are more in the 25-1/8" to 25-1/8" range. Leaf springs will elongate over time and if you took the center eye measurements with the weight of the trailer down then both of those will contribute towards the longer spring measurement, but from my...

  • Height of Equalizer in Tandem Axle Hanger Kit APT5 and Replacement Shackle Straps
    The center equalizer of the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double Eye Springs item # APT5 is 7-3/4 inches long (center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole) and measures 3-3/16 inches tall. The equalizer can be purchased individually item # TREQE1 it has a has a 9/16 inch center bolt hole.

  • Recommended 2,000 Lb Trailer Axle with Brakes for Small Trailer
    The best option we could provide you with is the Trailer Idler Axle Beam part # e48GR which measures 60" long and has a 2,000 lb weight capacity. It's not setup for brakes so in order to equip them you'd need to have a brake mounting flange welded on, the Brake Mounting Flange for 1-3/4" Round Trailer Axles part # 4-34. This will then allow you to add brakes like the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-2 and hubs/drums like the Easy Grease Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 2K Axles...

  • Heavier Duty Shackle Kit Solution to Replace what Came with # APT5
    The shackle straps that come with the # APT5 are 2-5/8 inches long which we have standard replacements for with the part # 115052 but since you are wanting something more heavy duty I would go with the # MR76ZR as this gives you a much heavier duty shackle that also includes new bolts (to accommodate the thicker shackles), and new bushings as well. The shackles of this kit are longer at 3-1/8 inches which will allow the trailer to sit a little taller but otherwise will work just fine.

  • Hanger Kit to Use with Leaf Spring e94SR for 35 inch Wheelbase
    The leaf spring part # e94SR that you referenced is a 6k trailer axle spring that is 26 inches from eye to eye so it will work in place of the Dexter you mentioned. If you used it with the hanger kit part # APT5 you'd have a wheelbase of 35 inches.

  • Complete Kits for 89 inch Long 3,500 lb Trailer Axles with Springs and Hanger Kits
    We can help piece you together a kit like you are wanting but we do not have them as single part numbers. First lets start with axles. For a 89 inch long axle with 74 inches between spring seats you'd want the part # 35545E-ST-89 and for a matching idler axle # 35545I-EZ-89. Then for leaf springs you'd want the part # e54SR, for a U-bolt kit part # APUBR-1, and then for a hanger kit with equalizers, shanks, bolts, and shackles too you'd want the part # APT5.

  • Replacement for 94" Long 3,500 Pound Lippert Axle
    It looks like your current axle is a 3,500 lb axle that measures 94" hub face to hub face with an 81" spring seat measurement. Although we do not have a 94" axle, you can use the Trailer Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles - 95" Long - 3,500 lbs # e68GR which will stick out 1/2" farther on either side but not cause an issue. This axle will also work with the # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K you looked at. One thing you will need to do is cut off the spring seats and weld on new ones like the # TRSS238...

  • Recommended Replacement Leaf Springs and Hanger Kit for 8,000 Pound Dual Axle Car Hauler
    Starting with the leaf springs, I recommend the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # e57SR. This 3-spring stack measures 25-1/4 inches from the center of spring eye to the center of spring eye. This is a more common spring length for this capacity, so it will be much easier to find an exact replacement down the line when needed. You can then use the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit # APT5.. This kit includes 6 hangers, 2 equalizers, 8 shackle straps, 14 shackle bolts, and 14 locknuts. You will need...

  • Recommended Tandem Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for 40 Foot Trailer
    Yes, the length of the trailer frame will play a part in determining where to position the trailer axles. The axles will need to be placed under the trailer so that 10-15% of the total weight will be on the tongue. I have attached a photo below with the formula you will need to use in order to find out the best spot to place your axles. In regards to parts needed for the above, I recommend the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double Eye Springs part # APT5 with the U-Bolt Kit for Mounting...

  • Parts Needed to Add Tandem 7K Axles to a Trailer From Scratch
    I do have some options for you but we don't carry dually axles nor do they offer these in a 7,000 lb weight capacity. The dually axles are typically between 10,000 - 15,000 lbs. If you're however okay with just tandem 7,000 lb axles then we may have an option for you, starting with the axle we have a few different choices depending on your trailer width. The Trailer Axle with Electric Brakes part # e23SR for example is 94" long whereas the Trailer Axle with Electric Brakes part # e83SR...

  • How To Choose Correct Replacement Leaf Spring Hangers for a 2016 Keystone Alpine 5th Wheel
    In order to choose the correct leaf spring hangers and shackle links for a 2016 Keystone Alpine 5th Wheel you'll need to measure the leaf spring width, note the type, measure the leaf springer hanger height, and shackle length. We do offer kits with all of these items as well as a few more like the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double Eye Springs part # APT5. This kit is designed for 1-3/4" wide leaf springs. It has 3-1/4" tall equalizers and 2-5/8" shackles. I have attached a full...

  • How To Determine Axle Placement for Tandem Axles on Trailer
    I can help you out with this, but without knowing anything about the trailer, I can't give you any exact numbers. For starters, I've linked one of our helpful articles on where to position your trailer axle. Finding this measurement depends on the tongue weight of the trailer, and the measurement you're going to get is where you want to put the center hanger from the # APT5 kit for the suspension, on your trailer frame. As I mentioned, I've linked a helpful article on the process for...

  • Picking Out Trailer Leaf Springs for Trailer with 30 inches between Hangers
    To pick out the correct suspension components for a trailer you want to do it by most importantly picking out the springs that closely match the capacity of the axle capacity needed. That is priority one. For example if you were using the springs part # 1020, # e66SR, # e34SR, # e28SR, or # e57SR with the hanger kit part # APT5 that comes with equalizers that are 7-3/4 inches long you would want the hanger spacing to be 29-1/2 inches which is pretty close to what you have. All of these...

  • Fit and Compatibility of PR6 Leaf Spring on a Trailer with Tandem Dexter 7K Axles
    If you need the full capacity of your 7K tandem axles the # e64SR is the leaf spring you will need. These double eye leaf springs require a 29-1/2 inch distance between the front and center hangers and the center and rear hangers. Worst case scenario you will need to move the two outer hangers on your trailer to accommodate this spacing. You may also be able to compensate for the difference with a slightly longer equalizer or longer shackle straps to make up for the shorter spring. If...

  • Hanger Kit Recommendation for Leaf Spring e84SR

  • Determining If Trailer Suspension Is Correct Since It Has 28-3/4" Hanger Spacing Instead Of 29-1/2"
    Thanks for the measurements! You are correct that the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Tall Front/Center/Rear # APT5 you were looking at is designed around 29-1/2" hanger spacing but your suspension is a bit different in a few key ways. The # APT5 uses 25-1/8" long springs and a 7-3/4" long equalizer, where your suspension uses a 26-1/2" spring and a 5-1/2" long equalizer. With these difference it is very possible your suspension is setup correct, as hanger...

  • Which Hub and Drums and Braking Assemblies Fit Tandem 6000lb Phillips/Dexter Axles?
    I would be happy to help! As long as the race measurements you took were of the inside diameter then your spindle uses inner bearing # 25580 and outer bearing # 14125A, # LM67048, or # 15123 as each of these measure 1.25". The only difference between these outer bearings is the race used which is based on the hub and not the spindle. For a replacement hub and drum I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 5,200-lb and 6,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 12" - 6 on 5-1/2 # 8-201-9UC3-EZ...

  • Does the Equalizer of the Trailer Hanger Kit APT5 Have Movement Once Tightened Down
    I spoke with my contact at Dexter and he informed me that you will tighten down the mounting hardware as tight as you can reasonably get it, and that even though you have the hardware tight it will still allow the necessary movement for the equalizer to work as designed on this Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit, part # APT5. I attached an FAQ article on trailer suspension below for you to check out also.

  • Does Trailer Suspension 7-3/4 Inch Equalizer EQ-E1 Have a Weight Capacity
    Equalizer # TREQE1 does not have a weight capacity itself. It isn't bearing much of the weight compared to other components in a trailer suspension set up. If you have a tandem axle trailer then you could potentially use kit # APT5, # APT3, # APT9, # APT8, # APT7, or # APT3HD. All of these kits have the 7-3/4 inch long equalizers. For a triple axle trailer you could use # APTT5 or # APTT3. All of the above kits also come with hangers. If you do not need hangers then you would need to...

  • Parts Needed to Turn Single Axle Trailer Into Tandem Axle Trailer
    There is not going to be a kit, per se, to make your single axle trailer a tandem axle trailer because not all trailers are created equal. The first thing you'll need is the measurement of your current axle from hub face to hub face, and then spring seat center to spring seat center; this will determine whether or not you'll be able to use a stock axle or need a custom ordered one. The other parts you would need are a hanger kit like the # APT5 to mount the springs to the trailer frame,...
