Are there Bolt-On Hangers for Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension


I would like to use these springs but having trouble finding the right parts. I have a 1-1/2inch square axle. Id like to use all bolt on parts as I dont know how to weld and would like to save money by not having to pay someone to weld parts on. Ive seen bolt on spring hangers and spring seats that dont require welding on other sites but I dont see these on your site. Do you have all the parts I would need to do this without welding?

We do have a couple of bolt-on spring hangers # CE14017G and # CE14016G but they are designed for slipper springs and not double-eye springs like # SP-124275. 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 do is use bolt-on hangers # CE14017G and # CE14016G with slipper spring # SP-179275. Then you would just need 2 of shackle bolt # 166079 per spring which includes the nuts. You would still need the u-bolts and u-bolt plates.
