A lot of comfort going down the road knowing you put that extra effort in the repairs. Keep plenty of space to fill on the way back. Nice job.

Whenever you load a trailer to the max it is always good to know you paid up for the fattest axle U bolts and new genuine Dexter axle parts.

I don't know if it's worth going to greaseable   eye bolts for the extra costs .   I've never worn anything I've owned as bad as yours  but some might want to consider using them .  Here's a good question answered about upgrading to them .

That could be an option, but I believe this repair will outlast the lift of the rest of the trailer. I don't pull a lot of heavy stuff anymore either like my cousin did, he had two large metal boxes bolted to the front floor that held all his metal form pins/stakes and then it was almost always loaded with his 16' from board for pouring basement footers. He worked it pretty hard.

I seem to remember you already tried that, still didn't work! Remember, this is an addiction, feeding it is a viable alternative to rehab!

I have to finish replacing the brakes on my '03 bri Mar, have to literally cut the old backing plates off, getting to crunch time as well for me, mother nature has been less than helpful.


Ended up replacing the equalizer and associated shackles and hardware, have to pick​up a pack of bushings and will be able to get this side back together, then on to the next, you're right about the whole thing being a pain.

Took it for it's "maiden voyage" last night to haul some large creek rock, I hardly knew it was behind me without all the creaking and jingling of the lose shackles. :rocker2: :rocker2:

 

Casey, I don't lose too many hats, I keep those under lock and key and on my head :D

I just bought this one a couple of months ago, previous owner said it was not towed in salt, it's an '03, previous owner didn't use the brakes, gutted the backing plates when the pads started breaking apart, so far I have had to cut the old backing plates off, and I literally had to melt the bushings out of the springs to get the bolts out. I will park this trailer in the winter like I do my other one.
