Video Transcript for Review of etrailer Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Spring Mounting Hardware - APT8

Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at trailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the tandem axle trailer hanger kit for double-eye springs. Now, this hanger kit will allow you to attach four leaf springs to your trailer frame. Now, the leaf springs we do sell separately on our website. This kit will basically include everything laid out here on the table.

It includes all the hangers you need, the equalizers, the shackle straps, the shackle bolts, and the shackle nuts all included. Now, this is designed for use on trailers that have tandem 2,000-pound to 7,000-pound axles. And it does not include the components for mounting the axle to the springs. Now, we're gonna go through all these just to show you the size of 'em. We'll start with, let me just zoom in a little bit here and we're gonna measure 'em.

We'll start with the front and rear hangers, that'll be the smaller. There's four of those. And basically, these are 2 1/2 inches tall, and when you measure the hanger, a hanger is always measured from the top to the center of this bolt hole down here. So if we put a ruler on it from the center to the very top, it's gonna be right at 2 1/2 inches tall. And again, that's for the two front and the two rear hangers.

Now, the two taller ones, those are the center hangers that the equalizers will connect to. Those, the same way you measure from the center of this hole to the top. So if we put a ruler on it, you're gonna be right at 4 1/4 inches tall for the two center hangers. Now, the equalizers, there's two of those right here. These are curved equalizers.

And again, the length of 'em will be measured center of this hole to the center of this hole. So if we put a ruler on it, there's your 7 3/4 inches length for the curved equalizers. The shackle straps, there's eight of those. Those again, center to center on the bolt holes. So if we measure it, it's right at 2 5/8 inches long on the shackle straps. The shackle bolt comes with 14 of those. Those are gonna be three inches long and they're measured from the bottom of the head to the end of the bolt. So there's your three-inch measurement. The diameter on these bolts are 9/16 of an inch, and then it comes with the 14 9/16-size diameter lock nuts. But that should do it for the review on the tandem axle trailer hanger kit for the double-eye springs..

Order received was missing significant pieces as per my notification to customer service. Looks like all parts, nuts bolts flanges were all packed loose in the box, UPS destroyed the package and reboxed, resulting in missing items. Attached picture is what I received.

I am sorry to hear that your kit came missing some pieces. I see that our customer service department is working on getting your missing pieces shipped out to you right away. I would love to hear your updated feedback once you get the kit installed.



by:

Parts r good quality fit good would order from trailer again



by:

Glad I chose etrailer for my purchase will definitely buy from them again, I had a old boat trailer that was given to me from a friend will convert the boat trailer into a BBQ concession trailer later with heavier axles and springs now using the axles and springs from that trailer to the new one for my UDS smokers, I have 5 of them to mount to the new one making them dedicated to that trailer.



by:

Everything worked as advertised and the delivery was as scheduled.
Thank you,
Leon

The kit did not come with the shackle straps in the description and was short one nut.

Oh, goodness! I am sorry to hear it arrived missing pieces. I have already sent your information to our customer service team and they will be reaching out to you.



by:

This kit made it easy to redo the spring location on a used trailer I bought. Also good quality kit



by:

Great tandem axle kit.



by:

Everything was what I expected. They look heavier built than the others I looked at. Everything was packaged well and shipped fast.



by:

Great fit for my build , I shifted the axles back on my utility trailer and these hangers worked out fine with my original leaf springs.



by:

I ordered this on a sunday and needed it before the next weekend so I paid for expedited shipping. By Wednesday it had still not shipped so I called the customer service line. After waiting on hold for almost 30 min. I was told it would ship out that day and I would have it by Friday or Saturday at the latest with the expedited shipping. I didn't receive the package until the following Tuesday. The parts themselves are what I expected but the customer service sucks. If you are needing something soon just buy it local, don't waste your money trying to get it quicker by paying for faster shipping from etrailer.

I ordered the parts on a Sunday and they were on my doorstep Tuesday afternoon, I got exactly what I ordered and I am pleased with the product.

Not sure if thisis correct item

I would love to help make sure that this is the kit for you. Are you replacing worn out suspension parts or building a new trailer? If you are replacing the parts you would want to measure the existing ones to match them.



by:

They work but the hanger brackets were thinner than my existing ones on my trailer so these are inferior to the OE I had to replace when I added an axle



by:

Customer service and tech support were great to work with. Fast shipping!



by:

Excellent customer service!! Great product that fit perfect



by:

light weight junk !! says my boat trailer Mechanic.
i ended up throwing the parts away and buying heavy duty parts so that my 62 year old self ain't strainded on the interstate with a busted trailer again on a Sunday where nobody is open for you to get any service to a boat trailer. a real bummer.

This kit is designed for use on trailers with tandem, 2000lb to 7000lb axles. I understand if you would like something that holds a higher capacity.

Showed up on time. Everything fit good. Had good customer service with good information.

All working good. No problems.



by:

Perfect replacements for rebuilding the suspension on by boat trailer! Excellent quality parts very well made with exact fit!

This is my first time using etrailer but it certainly will not be the last!!



by:

Purchased a trailer that looked real good, after a couple months when I was getting ready to install brakes and paint the frame, I noticed the suspension really needed rebuilt. Ordered hangers, equalizers, and new leaf springs. Everything came fairly quickly, unfortunately in transit 2 of the 4 leaf springs got lost, but were immediately shipped/replaced by the company. Great customer service, great help with anything you may have questions with. Appears to be great quality material so far. I will maintain to use etrailer for any of my trailer needs.



by:

The parts work like the original.



by:

Hi quality parts !!



by:

I am very pleased with the Loaded backing plates, drums, bearings and tandem axle hanger kit. All appear to be better quality than what came on the trailer originally



by:

I bought this kit to replace the equalizers and shackles on my tandem axle trailer. Buying the kit from etrailer was cheaper than buying the parts locally including shipping.

  • Leaf Spring Bushings For Tandem-Axle Hanger Kit # APT8
    Our Tandem-Axle Hanger Kit, # APT8, comes with the bushings already pressed into the equalizers, but it does not include the bushings for the leaf springs. If you need bushings for your leaf springs, you will want to pickup up 8 of part # TRBU11566 for standard nylon bushings or we offer Lippert's Never Fail Bushing Set, # LC279684. This set includes 8 bushings, so you will only need to purchase a quantity of 1. The Never Fail bushings cost more, but they will perform much better over...

  • How To Add a 2nd 3,500 Lb Axle to a Single Axle Trailer
    In order to add another axle to a trailer you'd need to remove/replace any and all existing suspension components such as the leaf springs, leaf spring hangers, etc. I then recommend using the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs prt # APT8 which would pair well with the 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring part # e54SR. Finally, you'd need to pick out your axles which would first require some measuring but you'd need to mock up the hangers and leaf springs beforehand. The Trailer...

  • Why Are Shackle Straps Hitting Frame When Re-Building Trailer Suspension
    The problem seems to be mostly that your shackle straps are hitting the frame, and the reason for this is almost certainly because the 3-1/8" Shackle Strap # TRSL313 you are using are too long. The other possibility was the hangers being too short but that is unlikely considering the lengths you gave. What I recommend is trying out the 2-5/8" shackle straps from the the # APT8 kit you have, as those are the typical length for a tandem axle trailer, while 2-1/4" straps such as # TRSL225...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Shackles that Reverse on a Trailer Over Bumps
    The equalizer on your trailer suspension needs to be able to move, you might have leaf springs that are too short or your spring hangers are too far apart. Typically when people have this problem the solution is to have the spring hangers brought in closer together.

  • Hanger Kit to Use with Leaf Spring # SP-216275

  • Parts Needed To Add a 2nd 3,500 Lb Axle to a Trailer
    The Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs part # APT8 does have mostly everything you need to convert a trailer from a single axle to a tandem axle. The old hangers would need to be cut off with the new ones welded in place. If you need help with hanger/axle placement you can reference the help article below. In order to complete your setup you'll also need leaf springs that are the exact same as the existing, both length and weight capacity. The 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring...

  • Availability of Replacement Trailer Suspension Parts in Kit Form
    The Redline Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit you referenced, part # APT8, does include the hangers as you noted. All of our kits include the hangers. If you do not want them you can order the other components as individual items. The linked page will show you all trailer suspension component parts like equalizers, bushings, shackle links, bolts, etc. and you can select only the items you need. You can use 2 of # TREQE1, 8 of # 115052 and 14 of # 166081.

  • How to Determine Hanger Spacing on a Tandem Axle Trailer
    It depends on the leaf springs you are using. Basically you will need to mock it all up before permanently installing anything on the trailer. Generally speaking the distance between hangers would likely be 24-3/4 inches on center to 29-1/2 inches on center but again it depends on the springs being used. These are just rough guide lines and really the only way to get the right spacing for a given trailer is to mock everything up and adjust as needed. Also, even though you asked about hanger...

  • Hanger Kit Recommendation for a 6K Axle on a Tandem Trailer
    There are two spring options that would work for you, the part # e46SR that you referenced or the 5 Leaf Spring part # e34SR. The only difference is that the # e34SR is a multi-leaf spring with a 100 lbs more capacity than the # SP-115275. Either would work fine for you, I would go with the # e34SR just because of the additional capacity, and with a multi-leaf spring if a leaf fails your trailer wouldn't be completely un-usable. You would be able to limp home to fix the trailer. The Tandem-Axle...

  • How to Find the Correct Replacement Equalizer
    The Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double Eye Springs # APT5 may have the correct equalizer but you will need to measure the current equalizer to find out. The length from the center of the left-most eye to the center of the right-most eye of your equalizer needs to be the same as the 7-3/4 inch measurement in this kit. Since you said the shackles are hitting the frame I recommend using a kit with a center hanger that is longer than the 3-3/4 inch hanger that comes with Kit # APT5....

  • Recommended Hanger Kit for Trailer With 5,200 Pound Lippert Axle
    There is no specific measurement for how tall your hangers should be. If you are replacing existing hangers then it is best to match the size of what you have now. If not then the # APT8 would work well. Another good option would be the # APT5 which is our most popular hanger kit. We also have a table showing distances between hangers based on different leaf springs for this particular kit to make things easier. If you need U-bolts to mount your axle then you can use the # APUBR-8. I...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Equalizer that Tilts to One Side
    Normally if the equalizer is tilted like what you have typically it's because the trailer is not sitting level. The side tilted up is typically pointed down towards the ground. It's hard to see in your picuture but it almost could be the case based on the angle of the frame and the ground in the background. Otherwise it indicates that either a leaf spring is too long or the center hanger is not properly located. I'd try measuring the distance between all of the hangers on one side of the...

  • Installation of Hanger Brackets and Springs for Tandem Trailer Axles
    It is not uncommon for the trailer hangers on a tandem axle trailer to be all the same size or for there to be different sizes that can be 1-1/2 to 2 inches different in height when you compare the center hanger to the front and rear. For example, the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs - 2-1/2" Front/Rear, 4-1/2" Center # APT8 has that 2 inch difference in size. I've attached an article on suspension to help further as well. You will want to make sure you position...

  • How to Decide Which Tandem Axle Trailer Hanger Kit to Use
    Typically when building a tandem axle trailer I recommend using either the # APT3 or # APT5 Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit. These are the most common kits used for utility trailers and parts are readily available. The # APT5 kit is by far the most common because all the hangers are the same height and provide good tire clearance. There are a lot of variables when selecting a hanger kit. First you should select a kit that will accommodate the wheel and tire combination you are using. The...

  • Dimensions of Center Hanger in Redline Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit for Double-Eye Springs APT8
    The spring hangers included in Redline kit # APT8 are intended for weld-on installation. Hanger part # E4139 that is included in the kit does have two holes that are for attachment of your springs. This part of the hanger will not be welded. I pulled one of these from our warehouse to measure its height and found the actual height to be 4-3/4-inches measured tip to tip; width is 3-inches. From the center of the 9/16-inch hole to the top edge of the hanger measures the specified 4-1/4-inches....

    There are leaf springs available with measurements close to 25" from center of spring eye to center of spring eye, though the correct one is going to depend on your axle capacity, which should be stamped onto the axle itself. Knowing this information is going to be important to get you the correctly rated springs. The options for you are going to be 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-222275 which is for 5,300 lb axles and is 24-7/8" from center of spring eye to center of spring eye. Please...

  • What is Needed to Add Second Axle
    To add a second axle to your trailer, apart from the axle you'll need another set of hangers that need to be welded on, another leaf spring,four more U-bolts, an equalizer, four more shackle straps, and eight more shackle bolts. You'll have to measure your hangers for matching ones and reposition your current axle as well so I can't give you any specifics on what is needed. I will link below a number of help articles and our entire selection of suspension parts.

For the trailer wiring you'll need the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C44NR.

  • Replacement Hanger Kit For a 10,000LB Tandem Axle Tilt Trailer With 2" and 5-1/2" Hanger Heights
    The Hanger Kit # APT3HD is going to be the closest we have to your current hangers. This kit does have the same 2-1/2" front and rear hangers as the Kit # APT8 you found but it has the taller 5-7/16" center hangers which is very close to your current 5-1/2" hangers. This slight difference in hanger size will result in a slightly higher trailer height likely only around 1/4". The old springs likely have more sag than that depending on the age of the trailer.
