It is often the case that springs have failed due to the additional equipment loaded into your caravan over the years. We suggest to either put your trailer over a weighbridge to get your exact loading or at least upgrade from say a five-leaf spring to a six-leaf spring.

- Old spring may be flat and measure longer than usual
Springs break in only two places for specific causes, they are
- Breaks near the eye are caused by shock loading when the spring is loaded close or over full capacity. Breakage occurs on the second top leaf just in front of the end of the third leaf
- Uneven tensioning of fishplates cause breaks near the centre bolt. Rattle guns are a significant cause of the uneven tightening of u-bolts
Spring upgrades are not uncommon on tandem setups. Spring upgrades tend to reinvigorate your caravans towing capacity to like a new standard.
60mm wide shackle is more adaptive and able to withstand shock loading and to twist better than 45mm springs.
Used in either tandem or single axle setups. Upgrading broken springs to the next load capacity is prevalent.
