Last Saturday, my Motorcycle Gang buddies and I got together to try to figure out why the Moon Hubcaps I bought off eBay didn't fit. After Dan managed to mangle one up with a rubber mallet, he said, "Well, you're not going far, anyway."
"Huh?" I said?
"You have a broken leaf spring."
The left side of the rear axle
, the spring had snapped in two, close to where the 2nd leaf lays against the 1st.
I got it home (due to 2 axles) gingerly. On Sunday, a co-worker and I got the trailer up on blocks, and the axles and springs removed. Yesterday I went to 2 different trailer places and finally got the small (20" eye-to-eye) springs ordered (4 each), and paid for next day shipping from Phoenix. Went to pick them up, and 2 springs were missing their bushings!
The trailer place made it right, and at 5:00PM I picked them up, along with new U-bolts. Hopefully, I'll get them installed in time to leave Thursday night for Lake San Antonio...
