Today we're going to be taking a look at the front, center, or rear hanger for double eye springs. This hanger can be used as a front hanger on single axle applications and it can be used as a front, center, or rear hanger on tandem or triple axle applications. It's designed to fit 1 3/4 inch wide double eye springs with 9/16 inch diameter eyes. It will work with a 9/16 inch diameter bolt. Your hardware is sold separately. The units made from a sturdy steel construction that measures around 3/16 of an inch thick. It is a weld on application so it would get welded directly to the trailer frame. The holes on the top are not for a bolt on installation.

These holes are for if the installer would like to use button welds instead of or in addition to welding around the hanger. The height measurement for a hanger is taken from the center of the mount hole to the top of the hanger so for this particular unit it's going to give us a height measurement of 3 1/4 inches. The overall length of the unit edge to edge going this direction we're looking at a measurement of 3 inches. The overall height, that's going to give us a height of around 3 13/16 of an inch. When it comes to the width, measuring the external width first, that's going to measure about 2 3/8, internal width is going to measure about 1 7/8 - 1 15/16 of an inch. Then all the holes on the unit are going to have a diameter of 9/16 of an inch. That's going to do it for today's look at the front, center, or rear hanger for double eye springs..

These hangers are great for the center. They provide just enough clearance for your equalizer. Because of the length and being that I am a welder I added a support inside the hanger to keep them rigid!


Product was high quality, arrived quickly and worked well!


Fantastic product. Just wish your shipping was faster


Etrailer is always wonderful to deal with. From full suspension kits to simple hangers, i always get more than i expect.


Service from E trailer is outstanding. Everyone does there utmost to insure that you are more than satisfied with the product and service.
Having said that, I need to be honest about the hangers I received. I have purchased these same hangers 3 times and in each case the holes for the 9/16" bolts were drilled off of perpendicular as they should be. It is not enough to create a problem but it is clearly not the way the holes should be drilled.


This bracket is better than the original factory one!


I rebuilt the under carriage of my older trailer and purchased parts from etrailer. I replaced single leaf spring with their 5 leaf springs and used their heavy duty suspension kit and heavy duty hangers. Everything works great and would recommend etrailer parts to anyone. Great prices and great and friendly service.

Steven P.


Still satisfied with the products I bought through etrailer! Works great!


I have never used these to comment. I carry them in case of a catastrophic failure, to have on hand to do a road repair.


E-Trailer always has what I need good products good service fast shipping at reasonable prices!!


Really like dealing with e-trailer, but am rather disappointed with the Hangers I ordered. They were smashed so hard in the die press during manufacture, that I am concerned about stress cracks. I attached 2 pics, and you can see the steel was slammed so much that it literally pinched it over a sixteenth of an inch at the base of the ears. Sad thing is, I don't have alot of time, and am forced to use them. I hope they don't break. The hangers I got in a previous kit seemed fine. I wonder why these should be different.


I have built several trailers in the past and I am currently building a tilt bed car trailer. I have made several purchases from They are great people to deal with and all of the products that I have purchased have met or exceeded my expectations. The spring hangers are well formed with no distortion and true to specifications. Highly recommend


The spring hangers I ordered are a fine product. I was planning to use some existing rectangle tube to make my own, but what with time constraints, I decided to order these from etrailer. I am glad I did. I couldn't have made them any nicer, I would have only burned time trying. I could have made them as good, yes. I have the tools to do so. But I could not have made them as nice as these in a short period of time. Great purchase, and it allowed me to work on other aspects of the trailer while these shipped. Shipping was quick too, all around a great deal.


I purchased the parts I needed to repair the suspension on an old Lil-Rider trailer. Knowing else had anything close to what I needed. The parts came quickly and we're exactly as advertised.


Delivery was as promised and all parts were there. Great service. Raised 5th wheel 4 3/4 inches so it would be level when hooked up to 2016 Ram 2500.


As usual, etrailer does the job and faaast shipping!!!
I will use these spring brackets to move my trailer axles forward and reduce tongue weight.


Fast and very patient and helpful with my order!!!! Thank's


Thank you for the quick customer servic e.


Great service, fantastic shipping and delivery. All pieces of the suspension repair of my tandem trailer fit perfectly! I have another trailer to repair and I will be ordering my parts from etrailer.


looks good


I ordered two trailer leaf hangers and a 10,000 trailer jack. The price was as cheap as I could find anywhere and super fast shipping! Thanks
Will be a return buyer.


Not good, one of the springs in my order was the wrong type. Customer service has a 20 + minute hold, also not good.


Easy to install and and the trailer I rebuilt is awesome now.

Robert P.


The unit is still going strong!


The spring hangers worked perfectly for adding an axle to my trailer.
Shipping was super fast!


Needed replacement parts for 69 Frolic camper. Parts were very easy to find on this web site, and are exactly as origional.


Simple and cheap. Easy to weld. Why four stars was that the holes from one side to other didn’t line up exactly which caused problems for my installation.

  • Can Shackle Straps Be Used at the Front and Back of a Leaf Spring
    Usually, you do not put shackle straps on the the front and back. One end the the spring should be suspended from a hanger. The reason that shackle straps are needed is to compensate for the extra drop of something like an equalizer or shorter hanger and to allow the spring to have the proper range of motion it requires. To use shackle straps in both places you would have to have hangers of different height. I have included a link to our FAQ article on double-eye trailer suspension that...

  • Way to Lift Trailer that Already Has Axles Under Leaf Springs
    The only option we would have would be to install taller suspension hangers on your trailer. You would first need to measure the height of your current hangers and then check out the link I attached which has all the hangers we carry. You will then need to select from the filters which size you need.

  • Trailer Suspension Equalizer Tilted Up At one End
    The suspension in general on your trailer looks very worn. I would replace as much as I could on it to get it back to good working order. The problem with the equalizer cocked to one side like that can happen sometimes. It usually fixes itself when a load is put on the trailer. What I recommend though is to jack up the trailer and use a pry bar to get the leaf spring end up above the equalizer so the equalizer is straight and then let the trailer back down. Regarding the tires being closer...

  • What Hanger Spacing Should be Used on a Trailer with 27 inch Long Leaf Spring
    For a 27 inch long spring like the part # PR427 the correct hanger spacing is 25-3/4 inches like you mentioned. Sounds like your trailer is set up properly.
    view full answer...
  • Can Leaf Spring Shackle Straps Be Installed Between Leaf Spring and Front Spring Hanger
    On a single axle trailer, the shackle straps must be to the rear of the axle, attaching the leaf spring to the spring hanger. This allows the axle to deflect upwards and to the rear if you hit a bump. If the shackle was at the front, the axle wouldn't be able to deflect in the correct direction, which would result in suspension components, likely the spring hangers to be damaged.

  • Single Axle Trailer, Should the Hanger or Shackle Be on the Front of the Trailer Frame
    It sounds like you have a single axle trailer and are curious about whether or not to put the hanger like the part # 28-5 or a shackle in front on the trailer frame. We recommend you put the hanger in the front. The force from the bumps in the road not only pushes up on the suspension but it also pushes the axle to the rear of the trailer. Having the shackle in the rear allows that rearward shock get absorbed better as it allow for slight movement rearward.

  • Why Should Trailer Axles Be Close Together
    If you spread tandem axles to far apart you end up causing tire scrubbing which means that when you are making tight turns the axle with less weight on it will be skidding around on the pavement which cause premature tire wear. You want to have the axles as far apart as the spring and hanger kit recommends for the best performance. For more information on trailer suspensions setups check out the link I attached.

  • Can a Trailer with Axles Over Leaf Springs Be Lifted
    If your axles are already above the leaf springs the only way to increase the height of the trailer is to install taller hangers. You should note that this route isn't going to give you a dramatic lift. The biggest issue your setup has is the tall rims and tires on your trailer. Normally trucks with lifts or large wheels can't tow fifth wheel trailers easily. If you are within a couple inches of being able to tow your trailer level without overhang/bed rail interference you could go...

  • Availability of 2 Inch Wide Trailer Leaf Spring Hangers
    Most all double-eye leaf springs are going to be 1-3/4 inches wide and the hangers will match. There are hangers for slipper springs that are 2 inches wide. I have included a link to all of the hangers we carry for 2 inch wide springs. There are various heights available and all of them can be welded on.

  • Suspension Setup Recommendation for a Camper Trailer that Will be Taken Offroad
    Leaf springs aren't any more designed for off-road use than slipper springs. What I would recommend is a Timbren axle-less system as they offer the best ground clearance since they do not have an axle that runs across the trailer. I attached a page that has all of the Timbren systems we offer for you to check out. You will want to pick out the system with enough capacity for the weight of your trailer and the same bolt pattern as your trailer wheels. For even more ground clearance some...

  • What Is the Hole Spacing of the Leaf Spring Hanger 28-5
    The holes atop the Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs part # 28-5 are spaced 1-3/4" apart on center. Please note these are not bolt holes as leaf spring hangers cannot be bolted to the frame because they must be welded. The holes atop this hanger are for weld buttons to help keep them in place.

  • Will Increasing Spring Shackle Length Allow More Clearance Between Tires and Fenders
    Because a suspension is not static but is meant to articulate, going with longer shackle links won't provide the clearance you're looking for. The best course of action would be to raise the fenders to provide the proper clearance. At the very least, you want to see at least 3 inches of clearance between the tire and the underside of the fender with the suspension at full load. A better bet for gaining height would be to go with taller spring hangers. Keep in mind that the amount by which...

  • Angle Of Shackles On Trailer Appear Wrong When Installing Leaf Springs
    Ff the springs you are installing are 25-1/4 inches, you would need to place the hangers between 24-3/4 and 25 inches apart. The shackle should be angled as the drawing shows in the attached helpful article, which should be toward the rear of the trailer. Make sure the trailer is not under load when you are installing the hangers and it never hurts to double check the measurements of the springs and the hanger locations as well.

  • Is There a Weight Capacity for the Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Tal
    The Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Tall part # 28-5 does not have a weight capacity nor can I say I have seen this on any leaf spring hangers really but there will be no issues with a 5,200 lb axle. When you get up around 10,000 axles you'll start to see wider springs which would then rule these out as they are for the standard 1-3/4".

  • Will Longer Leaf Spring Shackle Links Provide More Clearance Between Tire and Underside of Fender
    There are a few ways to gain additional clearance between your tire and fender, but going with longer shackle straps won't accomplish what you're looking for. The best way to proceed would be to either raise the fenders, if possible or go with taller spring hangers. Keep in mind that because a suspension articulates, going with a one inch taller hanger won't necessarily provide an additional inch of height. Going with a smaller diameter wheel/tire combo would work as well.

  • What Happens if I Change the Size of Equalizers on 5th Wheel Camping Trailer
    When changing the size of the equalizer that is on a trailer, this will affect the size of hangers needed or the spacing of the hangers. For example, if you were to go with an equalizer that is one inch taller, you could keep the center hanger the same but would need one inch longer end hangers. If you replace your current equalizer with one that is longer, you would have two options. One would be to find shorter springs but the easier option would be to move the spring hangers further...

  • How Are Shackle Straps Supposed to Be Positioned When The Trailer Is Loaded?
    As far as repositioning the hole in your hanger, that will depend on how much longer the new leaf springs are versus the stock spring. Say for example the new springs are 1" longer than stock when measured center eye to center eye across. I would say split that distance in half. So moving the hole out 1/2" will get you to where the shackles should be at an appropriate angle. Adding a bit more arc and leaves will add to your ride height. As far as the shackle strap position, there is not...

  • Proper Position of Equalizer and Shackles on Trailer Suspension
    I attached a picture that shows the proper position of shackles and equalizers on trailer suspension. Sometimes the shackle will flip up but if you jack up the trailer by the axle that's got the shackle flipped you can usually get it to flip back over.

  • What Would Cause a Trailer Equalizer to Flip Up to One Side
    Can you please send me a photo of your equalizer and how it is positioned on the axle? As long as the shackle straps are facing the correct direction (see photo) and the equalizer is not contacting the trailer frame then I don't see an issue. The weight on the trailer could be moreover one axle than the other which would cause the equalizer to flip up or the leaf springs could be a slightly different length. Unfortunately, measuring a trailer leaf spring is not exactly cut and dry. The...

  • Can a Trailer Suspension Hanger Be Drilled Out so that a Larger Bolt Could Be Used

  • How to Re-position Trailer Suspension Shackle Links Once They've Flipped
    You can get the shackle links to flip back the correct way by jacking up the affected axle using a floor jack which should pop things back into place. Having this repeatedly occur would indicate that either your leaf springs are too long or your equalizer is a bit too long. What equalizer are you currently using? Most of the time there's a number cast into it. I've linked to an article with more information on trailer suspensions.

  • How To Find Correct Replacement Leaf Spring Hangers for a Trailer
    It sounds like you are looking for new leaf spring hangers which we do offer replacements for. In order to get the correct ones you'll need to do some measuring. The measurement you're looking for is the distance from the top of the hanger to the center of the mounting hole. The Hanger for Double-Eye Springs part # 28-5 for example measures 3-1/4" tall.

  • Recommended Parts and Installation for Replacement Tandem Trailer Suspension
    If a part of your spring hanger broke off I recommend replacing it entirely rather than re-welding the broken piece. Even if you got the alignment perfect, the hanger could be weakened due to the repair so its best to replace the whole hanger with a new one. If it were to break you'd have a lot more work on your hands than just replacing the hanger.

  • Can Longer Shackle Straps be Added to Tandem Axle Trailer
    When replacing shackle straps they should be the same length as the ones that were previously on your tandem axle trailer; replacing them with longer straps will result in additional play in your trailer suspension which could lead to additional wear or other issues and longer ones are not going to provide you with added benefit. For a tandem axle trailer it is common to have 2-5/8" shackle straps such as part # 115052. I recommend using these if they were the same length as your previous...
