60mm x 705mm offset shackle spring. It is common to find these Shackle Springs 700mm on Jayco and other manufacturers' tandem setups.

It is often the case that springs have failed due to the additional equipment loaded into your caravan over the years. We suggest either putting your trailer over a weighbridge to get your exact loading or upgrading from, say, a five-leaf spring to a six-leaf spring.

Springs break in only two places for specific causes; they are

  • Breaks near the eye are caused by shock loading when the spring is loaded close or over total capacity. Breakage occurs on the second top leaf just in front of the end of the third leaf
  • Uneven tensioning of fishplates causes breaks near the centre bolt. Rattle guns are a significant cause of the uneven tightening of u-bolts

Spring upgrades are not uncommon on tandem setups. Spring upgrades tend to reinvigorate your caravan towing capacity to like a new standard.

60mm wide shackle is more adaptive and can withstand shock loading and twist better than 45mm springs.
