I\'m making Sami jamboree trailers and need help from you suspension guys!
I'm in the process of turning the rear beds of some Sami wrecks into trailers. So far the process is easy, spin the rear axel over, reverse the bolts on the spring packs, and mount the springs over axle for lift. Cut the frame and WELD!
I could do do this by trial and error, but I figured you suspension guys might be able to add insight. I've heard that older springs (pre-88.5) are a little stiff, and that's the type of spring packs I'm using. Considering that there will be even less weight than if it was still a truck, should I remove a leaf to make it more compliant/less bouncy? If so, which one? I'm not planning on using shocks, as most small trailers don't have them. But shocks may keep it riding smooth.
I'll keep you abreast of the project's development. Thanks in advance for any help you may offer.
May the four wheels roll you safely home (\);=
