Overall dimensions

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.


Slipper leaf springs attach to hangers that are welded onto your trailer. The eye of this spring will attach to the front hanger with a suspension bolt. The slipper end of the spring will slide into the rear hanger. If you have a tandem- or triple-axle trailer, the slipper end will slide into the equalizer that connects multiple springs. The shape of the slipper end of a leaf spring may vary slightly due to differences among trailer manufacturers. Because of this, it's important to check your leaf spring's slipper end before purchasing a replacement spring.


To mount this spring, you will need hangers, a suspension bolt, and possibly a spring keeper bolt, depending on the design of the rear hanger. If you are simply replacing a spring, you may still have hangers welded onto your trailer, but it would be wise to replace the bolts as they can experience wear. It is also 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension - Springs - DX93QR

Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this Dexter 26 3/4 inch long four-leaf slipper spring with the hook end for a 2,500 pound trailer axle. Now, this slipper leaf spring will act as part of your trailer's suspension system by providing an attachment point for your 2,500 pound axle. This spring will flex to resist shock. Also, ensures a nice, smooth ride.

And it does include the bushing right here in the spring eye. Does use multiple leaves to allow flexibility to absorb road shock, allows for a nice smooth ride and to reduce wear and tear on your trailer. It also ensures level ride on bumpy and uneven surfaces. It is a sturdy steel construction. Now, it does use pre-mounted hangers or aftermarket hanger kits required for installation.

Those items, we do sell separately on our website. Basically, the eye of the spring right here is what'll attach to the hanger that's mounted on your trailer frame, and the slipper hook end right here will slide into a hanger or an equalizer. This part is made in the USA. Few specs, again, for this, the axle capacity is 2,500 pounds. The number of leaves is four.

Now, the length, which is gonna be from the center of the spring eye to the end of the spring, if we put a tape measure on that, we know center to the very end is gonna be right at 26 3/4 inches. The measurement for the axle location right here is the length from the center of the eye to the middle of the spring. Tape measuring that is gonna be right at 11 1/2 inches. And the loaded arch height, in other words, the measurement from here to the center of the eye when it's loaded is gonna be about two inches. And the spring width itself is two inches.

But that should do it for the review on this Dexter 26 3/4 inch long four-leaf slipper spring with the hook end for a 2,500 pound trailer axle..

  • Can Radius End Leaf Spring Be Used to Replace Flat End Leaf Spring
    As long as the 2-Leaf Slipper Spring w/ Radius End for 1,000-lb Trailer Axles - 24-5/8" Long # e36SR is the same length as your current flat-end spring you can use it as a replacement. The only "radius" style of leaf spring that can't be used as a replacement for a flat end spring is if it has the hook end like what we see with the Dexter Axle # DX93QR. With this design you can't fit it in that same bracket as your flat end spring. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Recommended Axle and Suspension Upgrade for Converting Pop-Up Camper to Stand-Up Tear Camper
    In order to put a heavier suspension on your trailer you will need an axle, leaf springs, hangers, spring seats (if you need to move them), suspension bolts, U-bolts/U-bolt plates, and shackle straps (if you want a double-eye leaf spring). You will need to start with the axle, which will require the hub face to hub face dimensions of your current axle. While the spring seat to spring seat measurement can be helpful, it is possible to remove the spring seats and weld on new ones if necessary....
