Hey .... I am trying to restore a 74 Trillium 1300. I want to remove a leaf spring setup the previous owner had installed and replace with the original Trillium torsion axle. I have ordred the axle fro Trillium (Outback) in Calgary. Pacific Axle and Spring in Langley said they can do the switch. What I am looking for is some photos of how the factory axle is supposed to be attached to the frame. (This leaf spring setup will be cut off and the original attached). Would appreciate if anyone can send me a detail of how the original is placed. Photo of my setup is attached.

After you've seen the original way, I suggest you look into the Dexter bracket that welds onto the frame and then the axle will bolt to it. Makes it much easier to make a subsequent change (wreck, bearing problem, etc.).

While you're at it, if you don't have brakes, order the new axle with them -- Cheapest way to obtain them.

If you can cancel the axle order, I'd suggest getting the [b]brand new frame with axle and brakes that Tom from Trillium RV has posted on the for sale forum here for $975 located about 3.5 hrs south of you.

It is a one time deal with two weeks left! I'm not sure what your pricing was, but my axle on order is $400 and some odd dollars plus installation. I'd be jumping at the chance to get a brand new frame for less than $500.
