Standard Tandem Springs
Standard tandem spring replacements are among the most popular caravan springs caravan manufacturers choose.
Jayco and other caravan manufacturers use this type of spring. The price is for one side only, comprising two springs and a spring kit.
The shackle spring kit contains
- Rocker arm x 1
- Centre hanger x 1
- Shackle plates and shackle bolts x 2
- Front and rear hangers x 2
- 18mm Center Bolt x 1
Caravan tandem springs are 60mm wide and one of the best investments into your suspension system you can make.
How so? 60mm springs twist less and more robust to withstand better shock-loading events like potholes, railway lines, cattle grids, and corrugations.
If you consider 45mm wide springs and a cheaper suspension system, you must contemplate whether your trailer will be susceptible to some harsh conditions or run-around town trailers.
OK, so right now, you have a grasp on spending a few extra dollars as a better investment for your family adventures.
