Brain. I hope you get this
In regards to your trailer axle over a year ago.
I have a question for you about the Torsion axles.
Was your previous setup leaf springs?
And if so, how did you go about measuring and installing the torsions?
I have a triple leaf axle with drum brakes on the front and rear and am looking to change to torsion disk on all 3

Hugh, I hope you get this...
...12 years later.

No, they were the exact same torsion axles.

well my brakes have survived 15+ years, better side of 25,000 miles on the original parts!!
thought about just leaving them since I really do not travel far anymore, but ended up ordering new complete backing plates and shoes for all 4 corners!
also putting in new bearings and races on all 6, only found one race that was rough and I assumed that would be the rssince that was one that got hot on me many years ago.
by Thursday trailer will be rolling again!

Yea that did not work out as planned!!
Ended up with all new bearings and races, brakes, new leaf springs, new shackles, new bolts, new equalizers as well as 8 new tires!
Finally took it to the water yesterday and it towed great!
Now lets just hope the tires last longer then 5 years

Ah, another resurrection!

Tips to make tires last:
Do not park them on grass, at all. Carry 2x8s, 2x10s, or 2-12s with you. Especially for long term storage. Gravel, concrete, or pavement is better.
Completely remove possiblityUV ray damage. Install tire covers (like used on RVs) for your trailer tires, including the spare.
Keep them aired up to spec at all times.


Glad you are on the right track Hugh!

Wow the time span on this thread is awesome! I'm just starting to do this as well. But like you said in another thread you were still "wet behind the ears" when you started this! Well I'm doing the exact same! It's a steel trailer but it's my dad original trailer and I don't travel far so I figured id dump 1500 into his old trailer instead of $4500 or so for a nice aluminum. But i'm looking into EoH.
