How to Make Over-Under Conversion Kit for 2K 1-3/4" Axle on 5x8 Utility Trailer


Hi, Looking for spring perches to fit this axle. Appears to be a 2inch diameter axle. I didnt see and over under kit that would fit, so wondering if you sell smaller sized perches to weld on for this to be flipped correctly. To be exact this is a Carry On 5x8 trailer.


Helpful Expert Reply:

I'm pretty confident you have a 1-3/4" round tube axle on your Carry On 5x8 trailer. Having a 2" axle is uncommon and is typically only found with square tube axles, which you don't have on your trailer.

While there isn't a specific over-under conversion kit for a 1-3/4" axle, you can use 2 of the spring seat # TRSS175 and weld them on either end of your axle, and then use the U-Bolt kit part # APUBR-10 to finish out your own conversion kit! Please note that you need to have a qualified welder perform the installation of the spring seats.
