Im looking for a new set of springs for my enclosed car trailer. I have tandem axles. 3500 Pound each. 3 leafs per wheel. 26 inches from eye to eye. I want to replace all 4 springs with a 5300 pound capacity. I see on the internet that you Carry them.

We have 2 different options that will work best for your setup; part # SP-212275 (25-1/8" long rated for 3,500 lb axles) and part # SP-051275 (26" long rated for 4,000 lb axles). Both are 4-leaf springs but the extra leaf really isn't a concern.

Basically if you're taking that 26" center-eye-to-center-eye measurement with the trailer loaded then it's possible that the 25-1/8" long option is correct because leaf springs will spread out further when under load and they can extend a little over time. If that 26" measurement is with no load on the trailer then you want to go with the 26" option instead. The extra 500 lbs in the weight rating isn't enough of a difference to really be a factor for your size of trailer.

Attached are some videos for you to check out.
