How To Determine Correct Replacement Double Eye Leaf Springs for Camper Trailer


How do I determine the correct leaf spring to use on my camper with all the different axle weights? I have a dual axle. Springs are double eye 1 7/8inch wide, 4 leaf, 26inch eye to eye. Thank you


Expert Reply:

The axle capacity and a couple of measurements from your existing leaf springs will help us determine the correct replacement springs for you. It is best to replace all springs at the same time and to make sure they match the capacity of the trailer axle. Your axles' capacities should be listed on a sticker located near the center of the axles.

The measurements from your springs that are helpful when searching for replacements are (A) the length from center of one eye to the center of the other eye, (B) the height from top-center of spring to center of eye, and (C) the length from the center of eye to center of spring. I have attached a photo showing these measurements for you. It is important for the spring to be unloaded when these measurements are taken.

I have attached a help article on double eye trailer suspension for you.

If you can let me know your axles' capacities and confirm if the 26 inch measurement is center of eye to center of eye when unloaded, I will be happy to help you determine a correct replacement spring.
