Life keeps getting in the way of my trailer rebuild but I'm going to get it done this year one way or the other.
just installed a 2000 lb. Flexiride Torsion Axle
that I purchased from www.trailerpart.com
. They where nice to deal with and they sold me the axle
cheaper than advertised because I didn't need the hubs that came with it. I received it 6 days after ordering. I bought the Flexride because I liked the idea of the ride height being adjustable.
The original axle
was a leading arm and mounted behind the floor. The new is a trailing arm and mounts under the floor.
Street side bracket
welded a 4 1/2" tall plate to bottom of frame rail up against the floor drop. welded a 5" tall plate to outside of frame rail. Welded a 1 1/2" wide plate with axle mounting holes to bottom of both.
