Boat Trailer Suspension is Making a Loud Popping Noise


Boat trailer makes loud popping noises that sound like its suspension related. Any idea what is causing it and can it be fixed?


Expert Reply:

If your boat trailer is making a continuous popping noise that seems to be coming from the suspension then it really could be anything involved in your suspension.

The best way to find out what is the culprit is to simply do an inspection of your trailer suspension. Parts could be binding or they could be old or worn and in need of replacement. If everything seems to be in good working order it may be worth jacking your trailer up and taking the suspension apart so that you can check the bolts and bushings for mounting the leaf springs.

We have a selection of replacement suspension parts like hanger kit part # APS4 for a single axle trailer as well as leaf springs like part # SP-212275 which I have linked for you to check out.

If you are unsure if something is worn out or not just send me a picture of it and I can help you determine if it needs to be replaced.
