Thanks for the advice on the axles...This particular axle I refer to is under a Wells Cargo 16' 102" wide enclosed trailer. I am not sure whose brand it is, butI am just about due for brakes, so I will know more when I get it apart. What uis going on is the back set of tires on the tandem have wear almost down to the bottom of the tread on the outside treads of those tires.
I was leary about getting a trailer with this type of axle when I bought this trailer in '95, I just prefer spring suspension over rubber. I also think if you need to beef up a spring, you can just add another leaf. With a torque flex, you have to change the whole unit, correct?
Thanks for the input, this is great stuff!
