Can Leaf Springs be Mounted to the Top of Dexter Trailer Axle # 20440I-EZ-60


I have a cheapie harbor freight trailer, and wanted to buy a good quaility, over built for the trailer axle. I do not think that there is enough space to mount the dexter 2200 lbs axle with the leaf springs under the axle. Can the axle be flipped upside-down to mount under the springs, or is there another product besides 20440I-EZ-60 that I should consider?


Expert Reply:

You should not flip an axle upside down because axles have a bow in them at the center which helps give them their capacity. But all you would have to do is weld on new spring seats to the top of the axle.

For axle # 20440I-EZ-60 you would need 2 of spring seat # TRSS175.
