I had a trailer frame made at a local shop for my still new Wood River DB. The owner fitted the trailer with 1750 lb leaf springs. Wondering if I should swap those out for 1000 lb springs. I will take this set up from NYS to Wisconsin and back, and also to Montana and back. Any input or experiences here I can benefit from? Thanks
In my trailer hauling experience the closer the spring rate matches the load the less shock transmitted to the load. Here is a spring rate calculator that might help you modify your springs to work correctly. https://www.suspensionmaxx.com I found that link in a couple of minutes of searching. Perhaps there is also a website that will do a=exactly what you need.
Thanks, and I just found Bennett posted on the same issue many months ago.
Yep, if you can find 750s I’d go with those. But 1000 lbers seem to work well
Thanks everyone. I got a set of 1000 lb. springs that fit after quite a bit of searching. Looking forward to posting some reports once I get this rig on the road and the boat in the water.
