    Posted: 18 July 2021 at 6:31pm
Going through the process of flipping my axle and mounting the leaf springs on top, I notice one of the leaf springs is broken at the eyelet. 
They are 36" and 8 leafs. I'm having the hardest time finding replacements even with 6 leafs. Anyone know where I can find 36" / 6 leafs double eyelet leaf springs? 

I may have to measure out and go torsion axle if I cannot find them. I don't think its safe to flip the axle and mount the leafs on top if one is broken at the eyelet. 

Any help/wisdom/guidance is much appreciated. 

Thank you!

Aren’t they just front jeep springs?

Forgive me if I don't return the "jeep wave", I need both hands on the wheel!

Yes. They are Cj2A front springs, as far as I know.

Thanks guys! I had no idea. Got the trailer in Feb of this year and this is the first I'm learning the suspension. 
Is it easy to find those leaf springs?
