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.

by:

Great looking, heavy duty springs. The original springs were completely flat-just not heavy enough. The tires actually rubbed on the underside of the wheel well. These springs have given me 2" in added clearance.




by:

Leaf springs were as described. Easy and quick install with no issues. Improved my trailer ride due to the heavier springs I put on.
As with other reviewer‘s I agree with them that these leaf springs should come with brass bushings and not the nylon ones. Nylon bushings will deteriorate quickly compared to the brass bushings. Don’t know why these are not coming with them since it’s a low cost item.




by:

I ordered leaf springs, equalizers and wet bolt kit to replace broken and worn springs on my fifth wheel. I ordered the wrong length springs on the first order. My replacement order arrived in only two days. Customer service made the return of the original order super easy and pain free. Really pleased with the products and service. This is not my first order from etrailer and I’ll definitely be back!




by:

The leaf springs I got are very well made they was the exact size I ordered. They are very good priced I will order more parts from etrailer they have good prices.




by:

My large camper flattened the factory springs so decided to upgrade them. I went from a four leaf 2500 lbs. spring to a five leaf 3000 lbs. spring. With the addition of a 4 inch equalizer between the two springs to make them horizontal, I finished the job in about 5 hours (including jacking up the camper and supporting it). On a 1/2 hour road test to verify repairs, I immediately noticed a big difference in ride and handling. I am so glad I did this. etrailer was great to deal with also from pictures and comments to items offered. They answered my questions promptly and shipping was a breeze.




by:

Great upgrade from what it was these units are pretty well over loaded soon as you take it off the lot 4400 pound spring assemblys and camper is 8600 empty these 5 leaf units should help




by:

I received both leaf springs in two days after I ordered them. Super fast delivery! And they fit and worked great. This is my second order and I am very pleased with the shipment and operation of the parts. I recommend purchasing these items from etrailer.com




by:

Joann was very knowledgeable and very helpful.. my trailer axle and parts arrived on time and everything was in order..it doesn’t get any easier..




by:

Springs showed up in timely fashion they are fairly easy to install, it would be nice to be able to order with brass bushings instead of the plastic. I replaced and upgraded to 3000lb springs the old springs only 5 years old and the nylon bushings were totally shot.




by:

We broke two springs on our 5th wheel so I found a good spot to stay and ordered the springs and all other parts from E trailer. Getting the old springs and related hardware off was a nightmare, but I managed. Putting the new springs and other hardware on was easy. I received great help from several of the videos at etrailer.com. I did replace all 4 springs and all other suspension hardware that wasn't welded on. Now the camper sits up about 4 inches higher, rides much better and is much more stable going down the highway. I feel much safer now, and need to since wife and I are full time Rvers. Did I mention that the prices were great?




by:

The new set of springs seem just fine after a year of use. A set of 4 of these springs replaced the OEM springs after an equalizer failure bent one spring. The new springs appear to be more substantial than the OEM springs. All 4 had the same eye to eye spacing, so I didn't worry about tire wear from misalignment just because I replaced the springs. The OEM springs were about 6 years old and had flattened some. I had no installation difficulties. I did replace the nylon bushings with bronze bushings along with a set of wet bolts. The hardest part of the spring replacement job was identifying exactly which OEM spring was installed.




by:

Springs seem OK. Advertised dimensions were accurate. I would rather have a metallic bushing in the eyes rather than the plastic bushings these springs use.


Comments
I recommend to use the bronze bushing part # D014-077-00
Bronze Bushing - 9/16" Inner Diameter, 11/16" Outer Diameter - 1-3/4" Long - Qty 1
$10.83
. This is the best option we carry that will fit this particular spring.

I recently bought Dexter E-Z Flex equalizers and was told by multiple forum members, "Since you're unbolting your leaf springs anyways it's cheap insurance to replace your 4 leaf springs with 5 leaf springs"
After much online research I found etrailer had the best price when you took advantage of their free shipping special.
I could not be happier with their service and FAST shipping!!!




by:

My spring on opposite side of trailer that I replaced in October 2020 is already rusting! It’s been in the water once when I launched boat in June !!! June 2nd is when I placed order.. October 15th is when it arrived!! Not real happy with poor quality after that wait makes this a once in a lifetime experience meaning I will never go this route again! In closing I should add that I went to a local guy and purchased the U-bolts and correct locking nuts costing me xx plus dollars.. want to take back/credit me for the mounting kit

Sorry to hear about this. Customer Service will reach out to you.

I broke one of my four leaf leaf springs and this was an upgrade, good quality and easy to install. Only thing I didn't like was the shipping box, the springs came out of it somewhere in shipping and we're scratched up. Should have replaced my old ones years ago. My trailer sits a little taller maybe a 1\2 inch. Love them. Fit perfectly. I have other trailers and will buy again. Can't believe the local shops want more than double for the same capacity spring.




by:

replaced the 1750 springs just fine, put the trailer bed 2 inches higher. gave 2 more inches clearance between the tire and fender.




by:

I used this 5-leaf spring (both sides replaced) to replace a 4-leaf version that had been replaced twice during the previous year on my 17' single-axle RV trailer. On the one year anniversary of the 5-leaf spring installation I can happily say that it is still intact -- and the trailer was used for more miles than during the previous year. The 5-leaf spring has a shorter distance from the forward eye to where the forward end of the next leaf begins. This is where each of the previous springs had broken. This shorter distance seems empirically less apt to break upon hitting a bump or hole in the road, or at least that has been my experience. The 5-leaf spring does have a higher weight rating than the 4-leaf spring, but that is not the reason I purchased the 5-leaf spring. I do not expect the higher rating spring to increase the rated weight of my RV trailer. But I do believe that the shorter distance of the single top leaf section between the eye and where the second leaf starts is key to preventing repeat breaks. Using the 5-leaf instead of the 4-leaf springs did not cause any significant change in the height of the trailer above the axle, which could potentially affect the center of gravity of the trailer. I look forward to the 2- year anniversary hopeful that the springs will still be doing their job.




by:

The 3000 lb. 5 leaf springs provide a smoother compression than the the factory 4 leaf springs.




by:

I just wanted to let you know what a GREAT experience it has been ordering from your company. I have never had a company check up or keep me as informed on what was happening with my order. It is a great relief to know that there are still some companies that care and are not just interested in "a sale."

I have attached some pictures of the old springs I took off and the new one's. The old ones were stretched flat with my dump trailer empty. When I put the new ones on it even raised the trailer up at least 4 inches.




by:

Good fit, good quality. Went on and fit just like the old one. Was put on a trailer to haul a skid steer.




by:

Sales staff (Paula) were excellent in both answering questions and filling of my order. The springs are every thing expected and the free shipping (and fast) made it a great purchase.




by:

i had a 7x14 trailer with (4 leaf ) 1750# rated leaf springs that went almost flat when i drove my polaris ranger crew onto my trailer... so i went up a load size on the tires to a D load rating and then i installed a ( 5 leaf ) leaf spring at 3000# rating and the trailer with the unit on it looks and rides a whole lot nicer now, there is actually some space between the top of the tire and the fender well.. WOW ... thanks etrailer for the recommendation..




by:

The springs appear to be well made and fit my trailer perfectly. I upgraded from 5200 lb. 4-leaf springs to to these springs. I’m sure they’ll be more durable. Replacing the nylon bushings with brass bushings was very easy.




by:

So far so good, but cant install due to missing spring shackles.

I really wanted to upgrade our springs and these were the perfect fit. A few other vendors said they were available, but shipping costs were huge. etrailer offered us alternatives (which I declined), was able to backorder the springs, and kept us informed as the vendor caught up on production. Glad we waited.

  • What Factors to Consider when Picking Out a Leaf Spring when Adding an Axle to a Trailer
    A much easier way to determine what replacement leaf springs you should be using on your trailer would be to first determine what the total weight of your trailer will be and then pick springs that are confirmed to be able to handle that weight. For example the # SP-111275 that you referenced is designed for 6,000 lb axles. If your tandem trailer will weigh 12,000 lbs this would be a great choice for a spring. Trying to use the dimensions that you mentioned would be a tedious method that...

  • Is it Okay to Tow a Trailer without Fenders
    I wouldn't worry about the trailer not having fenders. I've pulled a few enclosed trailers that were missing fenders and it didn't affect anything that I noticed. If you get a puddle or it starts raining the tires will fling water so it might not be as clean but you'd be fine.

  • What is Minimum Trailer Tire to Fender Clearance
    Generally speaking you will want to have 3 inches minimum from the top of your tire to the fender of your trailer to accommodate for suspension travel.

  • Replacement Leaf Springs for 6k Axles on 2012 Heartland Big Country
    Going with the correct axle rating for the leaf spring replacements is the way to go. It's tempting to go with higher rated springs but you'll just give the trailer a harsher than needed ride quality. Since your stretched (they all stretch as they age) springs are 25-1/2 inches the correct 6k replacement would be the part # SP-111275 and you'd be set.

  • When Should I Replace Leaf Springs On Trailer
    It is normal for the leaf springs to sag and elongate over time like your PR4 leaf spring has done. Since it's only a 1/5 of an inch it not anything to worry about yet as long as the ride quality is still smooth and the leaf spring is not rusted or cracked. Please keep in mind leaf springs should always be replaced in pairs to avoid different length springs and trailer tracking issues. I have attached a helpful leaf spring FAQ for your reference.

  • How Tight Should Nuts that Hold Shackle Straps be When Installing New Leaf Springs
    The shackle bolts used between the springs and hangers do not require a specific torque rating because tightening the shackle bolts too much will squeeze the shackle straps against the leaf springs, and the whole suspension system will bind and cause problems. The best thing to do when tightening down shackle bolts is to use lock nuts, tighten them until they are snug, then back them off 1/4 turn. Lock nuts should be used because they resist loosening with vibration or torque.

For example, the part # SP-111275 is 25-1/4" long, 1-3/4" wide, and is rated for the 6,000 lbs that you are looking for.

The shackle strap length has some effect on the spacing but for a spring with eye-to-eye spacing of 25-1/2-inches your two hanger holes should be approximately 25-inches to 25-1/4"-inches.
