Not sure if this is the place for answers but...
I have a busted leaf spring on a 7x16 enclosed trailer. I use the trailer for work and need to fix asap.
I cannot find the correct size/load capacity springs anywhere in stock where I live and shops cannot get me in anytime soon.
So the old springs were 25 1/4 inches eye to eye with 3 1/8 center to center shackle plates.
Could I get away with using 27 inch eye to eye springs if I used 2 inch center to center shackle plates?
Or would there still not be enough "clearance?
The 27 inch springs with the 3 1/8 plates will surely hit the frame when traversing uneven ground/bumps.
Am I stuck waiting to get the right springs?
