12b_elmo Not that it helps you now but PR427 is a 4lf 1500lb spring probably what you needed? Redneck trailer supply. Sounds like how all the best regular trailer projects start out, small and explodes after the first tire comes off. Still trying to get used to it see it all day. Sounds like you have a good starting plan. Throw a PM or message to me if you get stuck. I dont contribute much on the fishing side because i am still learning the catching side of this game. I figure no one needs assistance getting to a lake and driving a boat around for half a day. However i do know the mechanical end of stuff and try and help out there when i can.

littlemac hey not a problem appreciate the help so the saga continues, cowboy supply may have what I need but there hours or maybe its my hours are not in sync, they open at six and closes at three thirty mon through Friday unfortunately I can't make it there then cause I work and generally not very I decided to keep the springs from trailer source because the centering pin was really close to my originals just need to relocate my back hanger bracket but when cutting them off they did not come off in one piece so I ordered two bolt on brackets off the internet they should be here Monday. so its another weekend of non fishing,wich the wife is enjoying because all honey dos are getting done.just so you know the old springs were 27 inches long and the centering bolt was 12inches from the grommet hole center.

12b_elmo Sorry for late reply. On vacation used to have internet but nothing this year. You still having issues? PM me with spring dimensions. I will see if i can look them up and atleast get you part numbers. As for T/S i will pass info along. It would also work to throw an email to the company they do monitor and care. Let me know.

littlemac so I picked up my new leaf springs today and like everything else there the wrong size.the guy was dealing with at the wheat ridge trailer source was named Dave,and yes I did bring in the old springs dont know a quarter or half short would have been fine but its almost two inches!lol

12b_elmo 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.

earplug E has what you need. Measure old leaf springs and shackle length,
know what the trailer weight rating is and order new springs.

earplug Probably easier and smarter to order two new springs. One for each side.

albow I'll bet Iron Bear Trailer (formerly Jim's Repair) on 58th can get you started in the right direction.
