Shackle Springs is the same as Eye to Eye Springs
Shackle springs have an eye on both ends. Used on both single axle and tandem axle trailers.
The length of the spring and the offset of the spring vary according to tyre size.
Common spring widths are 45mm and 60mm.
- 45mm widths are used for city travelling.
- 60mm widths used by caravanners for longer country trips.
Rocker roller and standard tandem spring kits and replacements are readily available.
60mm springs are robust and recommended as a great investment for trouble-free caravanning.
Shackle springs when used in conjunction with a rocker arm, share the entire caravan load across both axles.
Slipper Springs do not have this capability, as a result, the slipper suspension is not common on tandem trailers.
Importantly, every caravan or trailer should go over a weighbridge before a suspension upgrade.
The suspension is an exact science based on your caravan weight.
Additionally, tow ball weight scales take the guesswork out of balancing your caravan.
A balanced rig is essential for a great holiday in the great outback.
If you are upgrading your caravan, these articles are a fantastic source of information.
