77 Trillium stabilizer legs in rear

Looking for help on rear legs for old trillium looks like they no longer spring anywhere. Can someone assist on what to purchase or do too correct?
Thanks for all replies

Yes Dan exactly I can source one in Canada because they don't ship here. How do they fasten onto the back bumper

Usually they attach with two bolts on top of it. I think I've seen a picture or video where it can be welded but bolting would work fine. Bolts are 3" apart, on center.

Etrailer does ship to Canada, and they also have a warehouse in Ontario. I phone in my orders and ask them to ship from Ontario, if possible, to avoid clearing customs and UPS. They ship with Canada Post, last I ordered.

Has anyone mounted these to the side of a frame? I want to install some on my scamp but am worried about the ground clearance if I mount them under the frame. I can possibly mount them inside the rear bumper since it’s just an “L” shaped bumper and they can tuck into the bumper so that they wouldn’t catch anything while driving down dirt roads and such.

I bought my replacement stabilizer jacks at Princess Auto - Canada.
Was able to use the existing welded on bracket - might have to spread with a rod or use a hammer to restore proper gap if bent. Bought a new hex-bolt with a nylon locknut to secure it from hardware store; a little wrestling getting the the spring on but nothing difficult - don't take them both apart at the same time so you have a reference. I think I had to grind off the pin to remove the new bracket.

Mine are mounted just as you suggest, inside the L of the bumper.

This is what I have. I like that it is continuously adjustable, not steps. Bought it at a local RV shop. Not sure of the brand.

Hi Agreco. This is how those stabilizers are screwed on. I angled them so the 2 screws on outer edges overlap the frame and bumper. They came with self tapping screws but I pre-drilled anyway. Steel is pretty thick.
To remove the ones you have looks like you can undo the bolt and pull them off. The part welded to the frame shouldn't be in the way and you might be able to use them for a future accessory.
