Will Slipper Springs be Installed Above or Below New Dexter Axle


Recommended Axle and Leaf Springs for a Harbor Freight 4x8 Foot Folding Trailer Model 90154 With the question that was asked in this. If I purchased all these parts. Would I still install the springs on top of the axle like it is now. Or under the axle like the video shows? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

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.
