Out of curiosity who are you working with at Trailer Source and what location? After that just as mentioned replace all the springs, sackle bolts, U-bolts and hardware at same time. This will save you more time later. Measure spring width most likely 1.75". Then eye to eye of the spring eye centers. Also measure shackle straps. The new springs will most likely be shorter by .25 to .5 as they get longer as they wear out. The number of leafs and the weight. Weight is not always total gross of trailer. Remember you want the springs to load and support the load but also flex on the potholes and bumps colorado has to offer. Redneck normally has good stock Iron Bear or Rockwell for last choice. Hope this helps.
