Well, that's easy to answer. The lad that assembled it, didn't have the correct "app" on his
texting machine. :(

Looks right now though.

Yeah, I'd agree that it was likely put together from a kit and could have just been an error in judgement.

Great trailer Al, glad you got it lowered down where it belongs.

Just reviewed the pictures again and have one question.. where are the spring shackles?? All leaf sprung machines have either a slip joint or shackles on one end of each leaf spring to allow for the flex of the springs when they are loaded. I see two SOLID mounting points on each spring. Figure out where the flex goes when those springs are loaded, and hopefully not into the trailer frame.

I have seen some where the the rear bushing is designed to allow the movement but can't really tell on this one.
