Purpose of Steel Band on Trailer Leaf Springs and Which Side of Axle it Should Go On  


why is there a clip on the leaf spring only on one side? Which side of the axle should that clip be on? does it matter?


Expert Reply:

The clips on leaf springs are designed to be forward of the axle due to braking axle wrap (twisting). The straps/clips aren't super strong to prevent this but they're still there.

If the strap comes off or the leaves come apart it is time to replace the springs.
