Can Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Rubber Springs Be Replaced to Increase Weight Rating  


i purchased the A12WS545 for a tear trailer build, and I have noticed alot of compression to the bushing springs, so much in fact, that I believe that I am close to exceeding the weight rating for the bushings. Is it possible to swap out the bushings with a heavier-rated bushing and replace the old one directly?

Thank you for your purchase last year of a Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System with Hubs, part # A12WS545. This system is rated for 1200-lbs overall weight capacity. If you are exceeding the system's capacity you can, according to my contact at Timbren, replace the main compression spring with a heavier-rated unit, part # A00100-55000, which will increase the system's rating to 2000-lbs.
