Somewhere on this board I thought I saw plans on how to modify a Horbor Fright trailer. I have the one with 12 inch tires, and need to narrow the width, etc thanks
Thanks for the infoe. The short spring is the smallest of the 3 springs, is that right? Looks like I got to take it all apart anyway. I stood on the tailer with my 200 lbs I mean 280 lbs and did not see much flexing..Texan said:Pete, I would not run just one spring. The main spring alone will tend to bend or flex in the center where the hole is. This is a possible point for stress to develope cracks and fail. I once had a single spring fail and the result was not pretty or easy to fix. I would leave the short spring with the main spring. JMHO with experience added. George
