Double-Eye Spring

Part NumberABCD

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.

Video Transcript for Universal Group Trailer Suspension SP-210275 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the 4-leaf double-eye spring for 3,500-pound trailer axles. This spring is designed to flex to absorb road shock and provide a nice smooth ride. It will help reduce wear and tear on your trailer. It helps you enjoy a level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces and it mounts to your trailer frame with hangers or a hanger kit which we do sell separately on our website. Lots of times they are listed on this product page as a related product. It does include the nylon bushings in the eyes. A few specs on this.

The spring capacity is 1,750 pounds. It is designed to be used on axles with 3,500-pound rating. When you use this with one on the other side it will meet your 3,500-pound rating. This is for a quantity of one spring. It does have the four leafs as you can see, one, two, three, four.

I do want to give you a few measurements on this. We're going to do the spring length which is measured from the center of this busing to the center of this busing. You can see center-to-center is going to be right at 27 inches. We're going to do the width of it and the width is going to be right at 1-3/4 inches wide. The diameter of the eyes on each end is 9/16 of an inch. I just want to know we do want to recommend is that to ensure proper axle alignment and suspension performance, you do usually want to replace your leaf springs in pairs.

That should do it for the review on the 4-leaf double-eye spring for 3,500-pound trailer axles.

I purchased the 3000# axle springs and all mounting hardware to replace the old ones on my 1963 travel trailer. My trailer no longer leans to the left and goes down the road better than new. I should have done it many year ago. I received my package on time and installation was easy and fit perfect. Thanks Bridget 116826

Well, I just got the parts, so can't say anything reliable on chinese made parts. The price was(is) Great! a boat load cheaper then the local store....humm. springs fit perfectly, however, the springs I wanted are no longer being offered, could of had springs made but I went with the less$isMore theory. (more in my pocket) The "white" nylon bushings I ordered would not fit into the equalizers, but the grey colored ones I had did fit perfectly, just a-hair difference in outer diameter. The bolts fit perfectly as well. It is always 10 times easier dealing with eTrailer then the local store, So I know eTrailer has put a lot of time into making it easy for their customers, Thanks! Very Fast shipping, all at a price I can afford! 355950

I completed construction of a mobile bandsaw mill and found the springs on the mobile home axle I used were much to strong. I believe they were rated for 6,000 pounds and did not flex with the light load of the bandsaw mill. The SP-210275 were a perfect fit for my need. Shipping was very quick and other than needing to purchase longer "U" bolts, I was able to simply remove the old springs and bolt the new springs right into place. Very satisfied with this purchase and installation. 286207

Purchased double eye 27" 4 leaf spring as a replacement on double axel boat trailer. Product matched description, affordable. Great customer service. Arrived early. Would be nice if bottom leaf was extended width, to incorporate thru holes for U-Bolts to mount the springs to the axel. 293612

by: Bill T.05/29/2012

The price was right and shipping was fast, and the video on measuring made it easy to be sure I was ordering the right part for my trailer. What's not to like? The only mistake I made was in not ordering all the hardware (U-Bolt kit, shackle bolts, and shackle straps) all at the same time. Although the videos say these parts can be reused, mine were rusty enough that they were really hard to get apart and then back together, even though they were only a year old. 41932

Thie leaf springs and bolts were delivered as ordered. My trailer is homemade, so getting everything to work was difficult through no fault of this product. The bolts are hard to tighten as they have sprockets at the head. Due to the way the trailer was built we had to improvise and go to local Autozone to buy 7-inch long u-bolts and plates. So, the only thing different that I would have done would have been to order the u-bolts from 275884

I have been ordering parts from etrailer for my 5th wheel travel trailer for years. I goofed on this order and ordered the wrong leaf springs to replace a broken one. I immediately reordered the correct ones as soon as I discovered the mistake. I have always been satisfied with the products I have received from etrailer and know I will receive a quality product from them. I will repost when I receive the proper springs and install them. 275353

Do you have a question about this Trailer Suspension?

  • Recommended Replacement Leaf Springs for Ranger Boat Trailer with 3000-lb Axles
  • It is tough to get a correct eye-to-eye measurement on a double-eye leaf spring when the spring is still installed in the suspension. It is much better to measure for a replacement leaf spring by removing it first. Also, if a spring is very old and well-worn it can actually become longer than it was when new. Years of use can cause a leaf spring to elongate by as much as 1/2 to 3/4-inch. In a 1-3/4-inch wide double-eye spring rated for a 3500-lb axle, we offer the 4-leaf # SP-210275...

  • 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, # SP-219275, # SP-111275, # SP-218275, # SP-115275, or # SP-220275 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...

  • Torque Spec For Leaf Spring Shackle Bolts
  • There is no specific torque rating for shackle bolts. You'll want to ensure that the bolts you use are long enough so that when installed you will have at least 2 threads protruding from the nut. Make sure that the bolt you're using has a lock nut, like part # 166081. If the bolt you are using has knurls at the bolt head, tighten the bolt down until the knurls go through the shackle link or hanger and the bolt head is flush. Then back off the nut slightly so that all of the components are...

  • Double Eye Leaf Springs for Boat Trailer, Stretched Out
  • Before you can pick out a set of leaf springs for your boat you need to find out the weight rating of your trailer axle. Then you will need to purchase leaf springs that are each 1/2 of the axle rating. The # SP-210275 is rated for 1500 pounds so if your boat trailer axle is a 3000 pound axle then I would say that # SP-210275 is the correct leaf spring for your axle. Due to wear and different manufacturing tolerances the spring dimensions will be slightly different especially for length...

  • What is Minimum Distance Between Tandem Axle Tires
  • As a general rule of thumb the minimum safe distance between front and rear tires on the same side of a tandem axle trailer is 4 inches. If you are at that distance currently there would be no reason to increase the distance. Tire failure is usually caused by a few things. It can be from overloading the trailer, improper tire inflation, and/or exceeding the speed rating for the tire. You should verify that the tire capacity you have for you trailer is adequate for how much your trailer...

  • Replacement Leaf Spring Recommendation for a Single Axle Ranger Boat Trailer
  • The way to pick out a leaf spring for a trailer is to go with the one that will match the axle capacity needed and is the correct length. For you the part # SP-212275 is the correct one to use. It is for a 4,800 lb axle (close enough) and has an overall length of 25-1/4 inches. Leaf springs tend to stretch out over time so yours new would have been this exact length most likely. The height of this spring is 3 inches.

  • Replacement Leaf Spring Recommendation for a 3,500 lb Dexter Axle
  • From the info I was able to find on the number you listed you do have a Dexter 3,500 lb axle so for a leaf spring you would want the # SP-212275 for if you need a 25-1/8 inch spring or # SP-210275 if you need a 27 inch leaf spring.

These springs measure 27 inches eye-to-eye and are designed for axles up to 3,500 lbs. I have attached a photo of this spring that has the dimensions noted you can check out.

  • Should the Space Between Tandem Axle Trailer Tires Be the Same On Both Sides of the Trailer
  • Is there more weight on one side of the trailer? If so, you would want to make sure the load is distributed evenly from side to side. Are you on level ground when you measured the distance between the tires? If not, that would cause one side of the suspension to have more of a load on it. I would measure the distance between the spring hangers on both sides just to make sure the problem is the springs and not where they are attached on your trailer. If everything checks out it might...

  • I recommend an axle like part # 35545E-ST-EZ-89. This axle has a distance of 89 inches hub-face-to-hub-face and a spring center-to-center measurement of 74 inches. The brake flange-to-flange distance is 82-5/8 inches. The axle has 10 inch x 2-1/4 inch brake drum dimensions and a 5 on 4-1/2 inch wheel bolt pattern. This will accommodate 13 to 15 inch diameter wheels. Based on the measurements you provided, this will work well for you. This axle comes with brakes, hubs, drums, bearings,...

  • What to Consider When Replacing a 3,000 Pound Single Axle Trailers Leaf Springs
  • If you use a higher rated leaf springs on a lower rated trailer they will work but will cause stiffness in your ride quality. This is due to the trailer not being under the heavier weight therefore less flex of the springs, using a higher rated spring will not increase the capacity of the trailer because the trailer itself cannot support more than the stated 3,000lbs of weight. When replacing leaf springs you will want a new u-bolt kit like # APUBR-1, the correct shackle bolt like #...

  • How to Pick Leaf Springs for a Trailer
  • If you look on the frame of your trailer there should be a plate with the trailer VIN number and the axle capacities of the trailer. You will want to pick leaf springs that are as close to the axle capacity as possible. You will want to also measure the distance from eye to eye of your old leaf springs and then pick a leaf spring with the same weight capacity of your trailer axles and that is slightly shorter (around 1 inch) to compensate for the sag and wear of the old leaf spring. Leaf...

  • Leaf Spring Recommendation for 3,500 lb Axle on Trailer for Converting from Slipper to Double Eye
  • Sounds like you are trying to convert your trailer from slipper springs to double-eye springs. This is possible but will require you to install new rear hangers for the rear eye of the spring to attach. You would need to go with a leaf spring that is rated for the weight of your trailer when it is loaded an ready to go. The closest leaf spring we have in terms of dimensions that is for a 3,500 lb axle is the part # SP-210275. This spring is 27 inches long. For the price an convenience...

  • Leaf Spring Replacement Recommendation for a Boat Trailer with a 3000 lb Axle
  • The 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-210275 that you referenced that is 27 inches long should work well for you. Typically you want the spring a little bit shorter than the hanger distance (about 1/2 inch) but you're close enough that it should work just fine. I attached an FAQ article on trailer suspension for you to check out also.

  • Leaf Spring and Hanger Kit Recommendation for a Single Axle Trailer to Replace 37 inch Springs
  • The longest double eye spring we carry is the # SP-210275 that is 27 inches long and is the standard 1-3/4 inches wide. The best solution I could provide for you would be to replace the hangers you have now with something compatible with 1-3/4 inch springs and then go with a spring we offer that would work with those hangers. To pick out a spring you will want to pick out a spring properly rated for the weight of your trailer. Check out the link I attached to the right that has a chart...

  • 30 inch 1,500 lb Leaf Spring Recommendation

  • Leaf Spring Recommendation for 1966 Aristocrat Lo-Liner
  • I believe the part # SP-210275 will be your best option. It is 27 inches in length and is designed for 3,000 lb axles which is a bit more than what you would need, but would still work fine. The only spring we have that is exactly 26 inches is the part # SP-256275 which is for 4,500 lb axles.

  • Suspension Solution for Trailer with 3,500 lb Axles to Smooth Out Ride Quality
  • Longer springs really aren't going to smooth your ride quality out a noticeable amount. Trailer suspension is typically pretty bouncy or rough due to the fact that there is no shock on the springs to dampen or slow the movement of the suspension. The solution for that is a shock kit like the part # LC281255 which is designed to fit 2-3/8 inch diameter axles like what are commonly used for 3,500 lb axles.

  • Hanger Spacing Dimension for the Leaf Spring SP-210275 on a Trailer
  • The hanger spacing you will need to use for the # SP-210275 with the # APS4 hanger kit is 25-3/4 inches. One end of the leaf spring will overshoot the hanger and the shackle makes up the difference. This allows both ends of the spring to be at the same or close height and allow the suspension to move like it needs to.

  • Replacement Leaf Spring For 1998 Boat Trailer Carrying 18-Ft Bass Boat
  • The best fit when replacing leaf springs on a trailer is to know what the trailer and axle capacity is. There may be a plate or sticker that has that information listed. We offer one single leaf spring, part # SP-115275, and it is designed for 6,000 axles. It has a measurement of 25-1/4 inches eye center-to-center. If you are measuring the spring after it has been taken off the trailer it may have flattened a bit over time. As far as the leaves in the leaf spring, we may have one...

  • How to Pick Out Replacement Leaf Springs for a Trailer with 2 inch Wide Double Eye Springs
  • All of the double eye leaf springs we carry are 1-3/4 inches wide. The best recommendation I could make would be to find out what the axle capacity is for your trailer and then go with the springs that are rated the best based on that. You are going to have to install new hangers anyway so you really wouldn't need to match up the lengths of your old springs. Near the coupler of the trailer there should be a plate or sticker with the axle capacity of your trailer listed. Once you have...

  • How to Find the Length of a Leaf Spring on a 1985 Rustler 2 Horse Trailer
  • It is best to measure trailer leaf springs without a load on them. It would be best to remove the spring from the trailer completely, otherwise you could jack the trailer up. That will give you the most accurate center eye to center eye length measurements. The next factor that you will want to consider is that springs flatten out over time. If these are the original springs and they measure 27 inches from eye to eye, the original length could have been around 25 to 26 inches. If...
