Default Trailer Work

Hey guy, I have a trailer I'm wanting to do some renevations on especially the leaf springs. Just wanted to see if any of you gurues out there had any advice. Maybe I'm just an idiot, never done it before but it just looks like bolts that hold it the the frame and to the axle. Throw me some words if ya'll have any info to help. Thanx

Before you actually take anything apart check all of your nuts and bolts to see if they will comoe loose. Air tools and a cutting torch are good to have.

Oxyacetylene and a 4" grinder are the only tools to use for quick disassembly.

That is highly recomended. I boke my finger two weekends ago putting new leaf springs on my trailer. Me and a bolt had a fight and itwon a battle, but I won the war and got it off. That (alcohol) is the only thing that saved me from passing out because of the pain. I continued this alcohol consuption and went on the forum camp out at McRee and continued it there as well till I went to the doctor on Monday for him to tell me, "Yep it's broke. Here's some tape and a splint.":banghead:banghead
