Replacement Fenders and Hardware Needed for 1984 Shorelander Boat Trailer

Question:

I am looking to replace the springs and hardware as well as the fenders on my 84 Shorelander boat trailer. It is a 3000 lbs trailer per the registration the labels are too far gone to read anything else. The slipper leaf springs are 30 in length and 1 3/4 wide with 3 leafs each. The axel is 2 wide and 3 tall. The fenders are a crazy off set style made by shorelander- I dont know if anything that you have will work for my application. The wheels/ tire diameters are 14/24 respectively. Any help you might have to point me in the correct direction for parts would be appreciated. The tire size is ST175/ 80D13 per the sidewall picture. Please see the attached pics. Regarding the fenders- Not sure if I can convert the fenders to standard shape without the angled cut away. Also, the fender bracket includes the attachment points for the leaf springs. If I replace the fenders I'll need a new bracket to attach the springs. I rebuilt a different brand trailer last year and didn't have this much trouble finding parts. Hopefully you can help me out.

Thank you for all of the information and photos - it really helps give me a good idea of what you have/need. The parts that you asked about are listed below but I will say you may need a new axle as well if the location where the current leaf springs mount are outside of the trailer frame.

Leaf Spring - 4-Leaf Double-Eye # SP-212275 (you'll need 1 for each side)

Mounting Hardware - etrailer # APS4

Fenders - Redline # PF11X35W-2 (comes with mounting brackets but you'll need to supply the bolts for the install)

You may also consider swapping out the U-Bolts as well since they seem pretty worn. I'm attaching a link to our selection of U-Bolt kits as well as some videos of the other parts for you to check out.
