I need some new springs for my trailer but all I need is some stock CJ front springs and then an add a leaf.
I added a leaf before but theyre sagged again...couldn't be all the weight I put in on and hanging off the side could it?
I'm out of my mind. Back in five minutes.

I think you wrong about the rearching of springs I had a set rearched 6" with not adverse affect.

Then you got lucky boyzen !!!!!!
When you re-arch your also using too short a spring for the application !
What little truck is saying is he cant do magic !!!!!!
Im sure he could reproduce whatever spring you need at an arch and length needed !
Re-archin is only a short term solution in my opinion ------------having springs built for you is the answer !
Anyways -thanks for the offer !!! Where do you work out of?
Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be

Cant help with new springs but if you are over loading your trailer you should look in to more heaveir duty springs.
Boyzen:You can not rearch a stock spring more than what i said unles they are so bagged out thats what you have to do to get them up again but at that you maze well get new springs. So the ones that you had arched up 6" were probably either realy bagged or they where a longer main leaf to start with.

They were new springs but I also did a shackle reversal and made the revesal fit to the spring. they are still in the truck and it has been 5 years and almost no sag.
