    We have a 16' Double axle trailer with four, four leaf springs. I'm not sure what the GVW is right now.

    Whould it be OK to put 6-leaf springs on it with out changing the axles? I just want the extra support for moving boulders and mulch.

    If you have 4 leaf springs & need 6 leaf springs to haul the load, then chances are you also need heavier axles. You may even need a heavier trailer.
