I also learned of this . . . OF COURSE after I had completed all the repairs. . . .    I don't know anything about its performance.

I upgraded through Michigan Truck Springs from a 4-leaf to a 5-leaf.  The 4-leaf springs are 2000LB each - total load, 8000LB.

 

The trailer at full GVWR is 7,770!  That doesn't leave much play.   The 5-leaf springs are 2500 each, and perfect for the 15" wheels.

 

However, I needed these 6" long, 2-3/8" round U-bolts for the springs.

These are the bushings I replaced in the springs and the equalizer (the triangle piece).

This is the "bushing" the leaf springs came with.

I swapped them out with bronze ones from Amazon.

Finally finished the first side.  Notice the nice curve to the leaf springs.  They are NOT supposed to be flat.
