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.


Slipper leaf springs attach to hangers that are welded onto your trailer. The eye of this spring will attach to the front hanger with a suspension bolt. The flat slipper end of the spring will slide into the rear hanger. If you have a tandem- or triple-axle trailer, the slipper end will slide into the equalizer that connects multiple springs. The shape of the slipper end of a leaf spring may vary slightly due to differences among trailer manufacturers. Because of this, it's important to check your leaf spring's slipper end before purchasing a replacement spring.


To mount this spring, you will need hangers, a suspension bolt, and possibly a spring keeper bolt, depending on the design of the rear hanger. If you are simply replacing a spring, you may still have hangers welded onto your trailer, but it would be wise to replace the bolts as they can experience wear. It is also 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.

Video Transcript for Universal Group 4-Leaf Slipper Spring Installation

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the replacement 4-leaf slipper spring with radius end for 2000 pound trailer axles, measuring 24 5/8" inch. Part number is SP-179275. Now to install the spring on your axle, we're gonna use U-bolts to connect it. So our spring's gonna fit around the underside. We'll have a plater to go underneath and two U-bolts to hold it. Now we recommend using a new U-bolt kit.

The larger hole in the middle is gonna accept the small tab that stick off there. The tope portion of the bolt fits right into the bottom. The spring perch there, bring that through and then we'll just take the provided nuts. We'll snug these down once we have our axle in position and we know that it's hanging the way we want it. Now we can get our axle put up in position once we have that done on each end.

You'll see here on the backside is gonna be the area the slipper portion will slide into. Then we'll rotate it up into position and we'll use our bolt here in the front. Now we're using the 9/16" bolt. It's 3 1/2" long.Part number 166079. That's gonna be the perfect bolt solution for this particular spring, so we just want to rotate that up into position.

Once we align our hole, we can slide through our bolt. You can see that's gonna fit right through that bracket up here on the spring eye. It'll go through our bracket, through the spring eye, come out on the inside. Just wan to keep in mind, you do want a little bit of movement. You don't want to squeeze that bracket down so tight that it's pulled against the side of the springs.

You want those to be able to move a little bit. Now on the backside of the bolt right there at the head, you'll see those lines that are on it. Those are designed to engage the bracket and keep our bolt from turning, so you don't want to turn the bolt side. We're gonna tighten this down using the nut side only. Now once the spring eye bolts are in place, just want to kinda tap your axle. Make sure that your U-bolts are sitting straight up and down. We'll start to tighten these down evenly.Now we're gonna go to each one and we're gonna begin to torque them down. Now typically what you're looking for is torque to yield is what they call. So we're gonna torque these just until we see our plate start to deform just slightly. That'll give us the proper tension on those U-bolts. So we won't have to worry about them backing off. Now with everything tightened down, that completes our installation of the replacement 4-leaf slipper spring with the radius end for 2000 pound trailer axles, part number is SP-179275.

I have purchased a number of items from etrailer.com such ans leaf springs, axle and hub assembly, and other items as well, I recently finished the trailer and it is now on a cross country trip. The trailer has just finished a 3,000 mile leg of this trip and I am told it was so smooth that it could not be felt by the towing vehicle. Every product I have ordered from etrailer.com has been top quality and has worked extremely well. I would come back again for any of my future trailer needs. 390893

The Reline trailer suspension fit perfect on my small sailboat trailer. It was easy to install and installation instructions video was great for a first timer like me to do the job. Great customer service support helped me out when the first suspension was too big for my trailer. I return it and got the right size. I am very satisfied with the product and the price on the suspension. 349500

2,000 lb. GVW utility trailer came stock with set of two-leaf springs. No wonder it sagged when loaded to 1,500 to 2,000 lbs. So I ordered a set of four-leaf springs. The description of the springs was very thorough so I was very sure they were what would work and install easily. When the new springs arrived it only took ten or fifteen minutes per side to easily make the switch to the new four-leaf springs. By cleaning all surfaces and going to all steel shorter lock nuts I was even able to re-use the old U-bolts and other hardware. Haven't used it yet (still repairing lights) but I'm sure there'll be a noticeable difference for the better! Thanks e-trailer! 547118

I rate the company itself , shipping and parts availability 5 stars. These springs i give two stars. I had to take two sets of leaf spring and make them into one set so they will hold up the trailer. This included complete disassembly , and rebuild of the new springs after installing them the first time. The job took me twice as long. If I had not needed the trailer the next day I would have returned them. These springs are closer to 1500lbs total instead of 2000lbs. 661363

Hi Kelsey, Thanks to etrailer I was able to rebuild most of my boat trailer. It was easy. Your parts are of very good quality and are holding up well.

Customer service with etrailer as usual was 100%. I placed my order in the morning, and within an hour I received shipping info and it arrived only a few days later. Couldn't be happier with etrailer, I have used them several times and the customer service is hard to beat. The springs seem to be of good quality. I just put them on so I am unable to comment on their longevity. They do sag a little more than the previous springs I had on the trailer but they should work just fine. I sprayed some liquid rubber coating on the springs to try and increase the overall lifespan, hopefully it will slow the rate of corrosion. 430391

Do you have a question about this Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension?


  • Replacement 1-3/4-Inch-Wide Trailer Slipper Leaf Springs
  • It sounds like your trailer uses slipper-type leaf springs like # SP-179275. This and other similar 1-3/4-inch-wide springs are shown on the linked page. You will want to confirm the axle's weight rating; this usually appears on a sticker or plate on the axle itself. You need to choose a properly-rated spring so that the suspension it neither too stiff nor under-rated for the weight load. You will then want to choose a slipper spring of the appropriate length.

  • What is the Difference Between Double Eye Leaf Springs and Slipper Leaf Springs
  • The difference is found in the application. The Slipper Spring styles, like part # SP-179275, are intended for use with more heavy duty applications, while the Double Eye styles, like part # SP-124275 are used to provide a more comfortable ride. The part # SP-124275 that you referenced will be the correct fit if your current leaf springs are 26 inches long from the center of the attachments points (usually known as eye-center-to-eye-center). You might also still be needing a U-Bolt...

In the majority of cases, items will need to be altered for an exact fit which I assume is what is going to need to be done on your trailer as well. We don't have a slipper spring that is 1-3/4" wide x 28" long (center of eye to end of spring) with a 2,500, 3,000, or 3,500 lb capacity. However, leaf springs will fatten out over time which means the leaf spring that was originally installed on the...

  • Thanks for the photo. Your leaf springs have definitely seen better days and it is time to replace a little while ago. Since you said one side is open and one closed, I assume you have slipper springs. The measurement on the springs is from the center of the eye to the end of the spring in the description. For the measurement you gave from bolt center to bolt center, we have two options: 3-Leaf Slipper Spring w/ Radius End for 1,500-lb Trailer Axles - 24-5/8" Long # SP-178275, and...

  • If you are installing the Dexter Idler Trailer Axle w/ Hubs # 20545I-EZ-60-10 with the U-Bolt Kit # APUBR-10 on your Harbor Freight trailer you will install the slipper springs, either # SP-039275 or # SP-179275, below the axle like in the linked installation video. This axle will work as a replacement, though I do recommend verifying your current axle has the same 48" spring-center-to-spring-center length and 60" hub-face-to-hub-face length.

  • Replacement Leaf Springs for a 1,500 Pound Boat Trailer
  • The GVWR is the gross vehicle weight rating which is the most that the trailer can weight when loaded and ready to tow. Since that figure is 1,560 pounds it is likely that the axle on the trailer is a 2,000 pound axle. That would mean you need to look at leaf springs rated for 1,000 pounds each. There are 2 types of trailer leaf springs that we carry: double-eye and slipper. Double-eye springs have an eyelet on each end whereas slipper springs have one just on one end and sort of a hook...

Its not likely that professional welder would charge that much. You might be able to find one locally via an iron workers union near you. For u-bolts for your 1-1/2 inch square axle you can use # SP01-120 for 2 u-bolts and 4 nuts. For a u-bolt plate you can use # 115983. For a hanger kit you could use # APS1. Now what you could...

  • Slipper Spring Recommendation for a Kayak Trailer
  • All things being equal there really isnt an advantage to going with one over the other, its just that when you get to the heavier capacities you only see the slipper style. I would recommend either for you, but more importantly you want to pick the spring set that best matches the capacity of what you plan on towing. In that case I would recommend the 2-Leaf Slipper Spring for 1,000-lb Trailer Axles # SP-177275 since it has the closest capacity at 1,000 lbs per axle. Since your trailer...

  • Leaf Spring Recommendation for Trailer with Slippers Springs that are 24-7/8 inches
  • When picking out leaf springs there are two important things needed. You first need to get a spring that is rated for the weight of your trailer and then get one that is the proper length. Since you sent us a drawing that shows your slipper springs being 24-7/8 inches in length what you would need to do is determine what axle capacity you need. For a 2k axle you would need is the part # SP-179275 or for 1k axle part # SP-177275. Or for 1,500 lb axle you would need part # SP-178275.

I spoke with our tire expert and his suggestion was to lower the tire pressure a little until you are comfortable with the way the trailer handles and rides. We always recommend using the maximum tire pressure and to air the tires up when they are cold. This is to make sure the tires are capable of handling the maximum load they are rated for. In your case, since you said you are limiting the load you plan on carrying, you...

  • How to Determine Load Capacity of Trailer Suspension

If your axles are only rated for 1,500 lbs you would be limited to that. I have included a link to our 2000 lbs axles and a FAQ article on trailer suspension systems for you to check out.

If your spacing is different, feel free to let me know and I will see if we have a spring that will work for you. If your spring hanger spacing is 23 inches, a great replacement slipper spring is the SP-179275 4-Leaf Slipper Spring,...

  • Hanger Dimension Recommendation for Installing Slipper Springs SP-179275
  • Yes, you would want the hangers used for installing the Slipper Springs part # SP-179275 that you referenced to be 23-1/8 inches apart when installing these springs on your trailer. I attached a review video for you to check out and a help article on slipper suspension systems as well.

  • Slipper Spring Replacement Solution for Boat Trailer with 20 inch Springs
  • The only solution you have would be to move the hangers of your suspension to allow longer springs to fit since we do not have 20 inch long slipper springs. This will require a welder. If the trailer calls for a 2,000 lb axle rated spring the part # SP-179275 would work well. Or if you have a 1,000 lb axle the part # SP-177275 would be what you need.

  • Difference Between Amount of Leafs in Slipper Spring Packs for Trailer Suspension
  • Some people prefer spring packs with greater amounts of leaves as that in the unlikely event one of them break there are several others to back it up. But the thinner the leaves (to create a multi-leaf spring pack) the more likely one would be to break. The other thing to consider is that a thicker spring pack would raise the trailer up a bit if the spring was mount above the axle. For a 2,000 lb axle we only have one slipper spring available as part # SP-179275 which has 4 springs.

  • Information Needed to Add Electric Brakes to Car Hauler
  • Generally speaking, a tandem axle car hauler would be much more stable than a single axle. You'll want a hauler that has a weight rating greater than the heaviest vehicle you're expecting to haul. You can install brakes on most trailers if your existing axles have the brake mounting flange. To specify parts for you, I'd need to know the capacity of the axles, the bolt pattern of the wheels you're wanting to use and the reference numbers from your inner and outer wheel bearings. I'll...

  • Replacement for 26-1/2 Inch Long Slipper Springs
  • How are you measuring your old slipper springs? There are a few different ways which is why I ask. If you take a look at the attached photo you can see the different methods. Please let me know which points you are measuring from in addition to the width of the spring, and axle capacity on your trailer. With that in mind it is also important to note that a leaf spring will flatten over time which will then in turn cause them to be longer than they were when originally installed on the...

  • Slipper Spring Recommendation for Trailer that Weighs 2,000 lb
  • The most important factor when replacing leaf springs on a trailer is to match the capacity of the springs with the capacity of the trailer axle. So for a slipper spring with a 2,000 lb axle capacity what you'd want is the part # SP-179275. This is considerably shorter than what you mentioned having so you will need to move the hangers of your setup to accommodate this spring as it measure 25-5/8 inches overall and 22-11/16 inches from the bolt center to where it mounts.

  • Dimensions of Double-Eye and Slipper Trailer Leaf Springs
  • If you refer to the linked diagram for the double-eye leaf spring # SP-256275 that you referenced you'll see that we include two dimensions to the halfway point (lengths A and B) which differ. Dimension B is longer than dimension A since B follows the curve of the spring stack. Usually the straight eye-to-eye dimension is the one used to select a new spring. With a slipper type spring like # SP-179275 (shown in the other diagram) the same two dimensions are labeled as A and D and again...
