Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Suspension - Leaf Spring Suspension - 28-5 Review

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!


Megan was very helpful with helping get this order together and communicating with parts being shipped from other locations. Thank you so very much Megan!!!!


great product and your staff was very knowledgeable and helpful I have told many friends about it and I will use your company again when needed


Good product. Fair prices. Supper fast shipping. Great service and communication.


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.


Very convenient ordering product


worked perfect!




Just what I ordered and got here fast


Fantastic product. Just wish your shipping was faster


Product was high quality, arrived quickly and worked well!


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!


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 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!!


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.


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 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


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.


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.


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

Robert P.


The unit is still going strong!


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.


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.

  • Replacement Leaf Spring Hangers For Escort/Calkins Tandem Axle Trailer With Offset
    The Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs - 3-1/4" Tall # 28-5 would require a similar offset your escort/calkins tandem axle trailer to accommodate for the offset due to the slant you have. This hanger will work with leaf springs that are 1-3/4" wide.

  • 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 Using Longer Suspension Hangers Make a Trailer Ride Higher
    The hanger length can affect the trailer height. You would need to change the height of all the hangers equally to keep the geometry of the trailer the same. But at the end of the day there are other ways to get more height on a trailer. Keep in mind that increasing trailer height changes the center of gravity on the trailer and can also change the tongue weight and lead to sway problems. If the springs on your trailer are currently mounted under the axle, you can use an over-under conversion...

  • What Hangers Do I need For My Heartland Cyclone 5th Wheel Toy Hauler?
    The CRE3000 Equalizers # MR59ZR are a great choice for an equalizer upgrade, but there is not a specific hanger set that would go with them. I can definitely help and point you in the right direction. Now, I do not have a way to know specs on your hangers based on a make and model of camper. If only it were so easy! When replacing hangers it is important that we get the height of the hanger correct. This was we can retain the factory ride height. For example part # 28-5 is a very common...

  • 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 Hanger Spacing Should be Used on a Trailer with 27 inch Long Leaf Spring

  • Replacement Hangers, Wet Bolts, And Shackles for Single Axle Trailer
    The Dexter Heavy Duty Suspension Upgrade Kit # K71-358-00 is a great choice for an upgrade to your single axle trailer. This includes wet bolts, steel bushing, and 1/2" thick steel shackles straps that will last. For your hangers, you will need to measure your current hangers to find the right height. This is the distance from the center of the bolt hole to the top of the hanger. For example, if you got a measurement of 3-1/4" you could use the # 28-5 for a replacement. Regarding an...

  • Do Hangers Have a Specific Width They Should Be
    Although I wouldn't be able to give you the specs for what should be on a Grand Design (that's something only the manufacturer can tell you) I can tell you hangers which fit 1-3/4" leaf springs have an inner width that is close to 1-3/4" such as # 115917 which has a 1-13/16" inner width. There is not an adapter kit but if you are uncomfortable with the hanger and particularly the weld you can replace them with a new Hanger Kit such as # APT5 which uses 3-3/4"" tall hangers with 3" long...

  • Effect on Trailer Handling from Installing Axle Over-Under Flip Kit
    You ask a very good question and I am happy to respond. Axle over-under kits # K71-384-00 and # K71-385-00 will raise the height of a trailer by the sum of two dimensions: the axle diameter plus the height of the leaf spring stack. So a 3-inch axle and a 2-inch thick leaf spring stack will mean that an over-under kit will result in 5-inches of total lift for the trailer. The linked photo shows the relative positions of spring and axle after installation of a kit. Raising the height of...

  • Can Thicker Leaf Springs be Used to Raise Height of Trailer
    Sometimes it is possible to install leaf springs that have more leaves but depending on what you already have installed you may only be able to add taller hangers like the 3-1/4" tall # 28-5. If you can give me some more information on how many leaves you currently have on your leaf springs and what the eye-to-eye measurement is as well as your axle weight rating I can see if we have leaf springs that you can use. I have also attached links to our selections of hangers and leaf springs...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Lift Kit for a Triple Axle Trailer
    No, I am sorry we do not sell the MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit for Triple Axle Trailers item # MR86ZR with the hangers from the Triple-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit item # APTT5. I checked with MORryde and they don't offer kits like that either. You can buy the hangers separately with item # 28-5 but it wouldn't be cost effective plus you would still need equalizers. Another option other than replacing your hangers is to use the Correct Track Trailer Alignment and Lift Kit item # RR55QX....

The box is 3-1/4" wide and the opening is 3-3/4" long x 2-3/4" wide. I have attached a photo of these measurements for you as well. According to my contact at Roadmaster, the center leaf spring hanger will need to be between 3" - 3-1/2" from the bottom of the frame to the center of the bolt hole.

  • How to Raise Tandem Axle Trailer 3" For Deck Clearance
    Based on your picture the axle is already on top of the leaf springs so a flip kit like # K71-384-00 is out of the question. The only lift kit we have outside of the axle flip is the Correct Track # RR23QX. However, this maxes out at 2-1/4" so it won't be enough. The only remaining option would be to cut off your old hangers and install taller ones to raise the height. You will need to measure your existing hangers and add 3" to find the right replacement.

  • Availability of 1-1/8 Inch Tall Rear Hanger For 1-3/4 Inch Wide Trailer Leaf Springs
    The # 93003-3X rear hanger measures just over 1-1/4 inch in height (measured from the center of the bolt hole to the top of the hanger) at 1-9/32 in height which is absolutely close enough to the 1-1/8 inch height you were looking for that the articulation of the suspension will make up for that miniscule height difference.

  • What Should Hanger Spacing Be on Triple Axle Trailer Dexter Suspension Kit # K71-360-00 5,200LB Axle
    The Hanger # 28-5 spacing for the Dexter Heavy-Duty Suspension Kit # K71-360-00 on your triple axle trailer is going to depend on the length of the leaf springs you are using. With the 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # e76SR having a length of 24-7/8" this means you will need your hangers spaced 29-1/2" from the center hanger to front and rear on center. The center hangers will be spaced 34" on center.

  • Suspension Hanger Kit Recommendation for Single Axle Trailer
    I'd go with a new hanger kit for your single axle Shorelandr trailer like with the part # APS4 so that you get all new mounting hardware that's designed to work together and the correct sizes. This kit is designed for smaller trailers like what you have and includes 3-1/8 inch long shackle straps like the # TRSL313.

  • Raising the Height of a Tandem Axle Keystone Springdale Clearwater Trailer
    Using an over-under conversion kit such as # K71-384-00 or # K71-385-00 raises the height of a trailer which also raises its center of gravity. This makes the trailer more susceptible to sway but doesn't necessarily mean that sway will happen just from raising the trailer height. Its just a possibility. This is a job someone could do at one. But the new spring seats should be tack-welded in place which does require the proper welding equipment. You should not have to worry about realigning...

  • Replacement Suspension Parts Needed for a 5 x 10 Homemade Trailer
    We do offer a wide variety of shackle straps, like the 2-5/8" long part # 115052, which you can find on the linked page. These don't just fit certain leaf springs lengths though. I think you may be talking about hangers for double eye springs. One of our most popular (from the linked selection) is part # 28-5 which is compatible with 1-3/4" leaf springs and is 3-1/4" tall.

  • Can Trailer be Raised by Installing Longer Hangers
    Replacing your trailer's hangers with longer ones will raise it. Using # 28-5, which are 3-1/4 inch hangers, will likely give you the clearance you're looking for. Another option is an over-under kit. This moves the leaf springs over the axle lifting the trailer. It's often referred to as "flipping the axle' although this isn't the acutal process since trailer axles are bowed and cannot be install upside down. We carry two over-under kits depending on your axle size, part # K71-385-00...

  • 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.
