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.

Quality parts designed better than OEM, on time/early, no excuses!!




by:

etrailer was quick to reply to my inquiries and shipped the leaf springs that I required rapidly.




by:

Made in China, so now I'm hoping they hold up better than my 7K springs did. They also come with plastic bushings, so have to order bronze separately. Size as advertised.




by:

When the parts arrived the box was destroyed, lucky for me that my new leafs springs didn't suffer any real damage. the down side is that when I spoke with your Reps. I was told that these where made in the USA, only to receive them with made in CHINA stamped all over them with the DEXTER stamp next to P/N.


Comments
I think there was some confusion from the rep on the phone. Another company who sells wheels called Dexstar is an American made company. I am so sorry for the misunderstanding.

  • Will 7-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 8,000-lb Trailer Axles Flex When Weight is Placed On It
    If your 2021 Grand Design Solitude 375RES is loaded when you're taking that measurement then yes, that would be why you're seeing a difference in the length from what you're measuring and what we have listed for the 7-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 8,000-lb Trailer Axles - 24-7/8" Long # DX74XR. As weight is placed on the springs they naturally flex which is why you're seeing what you're seeing. Attached is a review video for you to check out!

  • Replacement Leaf Spring Solution for 2021 Grand Design Momentum 397TH
    For a 7k trailer axle leaf spring solution the best we can offer is the Dexter leaf spring part # DX74XR which is rated for up to an 8k axle and is 24-7/8 inches long. You'd need to measure your current springs to verify if this length would work but it is our only potential solution. You should measure from spring eye to spring eye without a load on the spring. There isn't a way for us to look up what length springs your trailer came with.

  • Does 7k Trailer Axle 8327834 Come with Leaf Springs
    Our axles do not include leaf springs. So for 7k axles you could use with the part # 8327834 that you referenced you have the option for the # DX74XR for a 24-7/8 inch spring that is rated at 7k like the axle.

  • Leaf Spring for Dexter Axle with 7k Weight Capacity
    For 7k axle leaf springs like what the Dexter axle part # 8327860 you referenced is designed to fit you'd want the part # DX74XR which is for a 8k axle like what you almost have but would work great still even though it's a little more capacity than you'd need.

  • Replacement Leaf Spring for 2017 Grand Design Reflection 303RLS with 7k Axle

  • Does Tandem 6k Axles Have Capacity for 13,500 lb Trailer
    Actually no, your axle capacity is 12k and you said you plan to carry 13,500 lbs so you'd be exceeding the axle capacity. The trailer axle # 8327872-EB you referenced has a 7k capacity so as long as it's the correct size it would work well for you. It has a overall length of 94 inches from hub face to hub face and 78-1/4 inches from spring seat to spring seat and has a 4 inch drop. For a 8k axle leaf spring we have the part # DX74XR as well.

  • What is Length Measurement of 7-Leaf Double-Eye Spring DX74XR
    I checked directly with Dexter, and from what I saw they have a measurement - taken from center of spring eye to center of spring eye - of 24.8", which is the same as our 24-7/8" measurement for the 7-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 8,000-lb Trailer Axles # DX74XR. The only reference to 25.25" I saw was from a different retailer, and maybe they were talking about the overall length, but it is not the correct center eye to center eye length.

  • Heavy Duty Leaf Springs and Cushioned Air Ride System for 2017 Dutchmen Voltage
    If your springs are worn out and flat with the measurements you referenced the Dexter axle leaf springs part # DX74XR would fit as they are a little shorter. The Lippert Center Point by Trailair Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade # LC1565391 would be a really great option as well. It will give you the 2 inches of additional lift you are wanting and also would do an excellent job cushioning the ride quality of the trailer as well.

  • Replacement Leaf Springs for 2022 Grand Design Trailer With 7,000 Pound Axle
    For a replacement leaf spring you need to know your axle capacity as well as the length of your current leaf springs. You will need to measure from center of one eye to center of other eye on your leaf spring that isn't broken. Since these are fairly new there probably isn't much sag but if the leaf spring is flat you will need to account for that. Also, you want to replace the leaf springs in pairs. For example, if you found that the leaf springs measured 24-7/8" long you could use the...

    Take a look at the leaf springs of the trailer. If they look flat instead of bowed up on the ends that would indicate that they are worn out and replacing them would restore lost height. We only have one leaf spring with more than the 7k axle rating you have now with the Dexter Leaf Spring part # DX74XR which is for a 8k axle and is 24-7/8 inches in length.

    It seems like it wouldn't be a terrible idea to go with a higher rated leaf spring on your trailer. To pick that out that I would need to know the length of your current spring unless you were willing to move hangers which your mechanic might be open to. The only higher rated spring we have than 7k is the 8k part # DX74XR which is 24-7/8 inches long. The correct MORryde SRE4000 would depend on the wheelbase of your trailer.
