I installed them with both up.. The trailer hauled and went great over the bumps much smoother and more fluid.. The trailer actually sits about 1/2" lower. Funny right with everything new..

Nearly all the bushing were completely worn out and even the bolts were worn..

I bought a kit with zerks and bronze bushings..

The kit came with shackles that were 3.5" long the ones on the trailer were only 3" long.. I have no idea what was original but drilled and cut the new ones down to the original length as the ones there..

I think the 3.5" ones would have worked but the springs eyes would have been bottoming out on the bottom of the trailers frame.

If I defend myself I am attacked.

My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

My attack thoughts are attacking my invulnerability.

I'd like to think of something smart, but I don't want to hurt myself.
