If Trailer Leaf Spring Breaks Should All of them Be Replaced


One of my factory leaf springs on my 2015 Cherokee Grey Wolf travel trailer has broken. Looking online, I see that its not an uncommon problem. My question is, is there any reason that I cant or shouldnt replace all 4 leaf springs with the same size leaf springs but with 20-25 higher weight capacity? Would that cause any potential damage to my axles?


Expert Reply:

Anytime you replace the leaf springs of a trailer we recommend replacing at least both sides of the same axle. Going with new springs all around for the trailer is a great option too. Going with a higher than needed leaf spring isn't necessarily a bad thing but you might have a harsher ride on the trailer.

You should note that your trailer's capacity would not be increased by doing this either.
