Hi i am new on here. so please bear with me. I was wondering if anybody had any clear pictures of a drop down axle built with a leaf spring inside of a piece of square tubing. and how big should the round tube be that goes through the trailer for the drop down suspension. thanks very much if any one can help me i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks ED

Welcome Sammy -

The top two pictures are from an ice castle setup for a 6 1/2 X 12 with a cable setup.

Bottom picture is the one on my ice house- with a strap setup.

Both have the following:

The tube is 2 1/2 " sq. 3/16" wall

Pipe is 2" OD 1 1/2" ID

Shaft 1 1/2" ( Machined down to fit into pipe for a slip fit )

Myself- I believe I would buy a set before building them again. Should have taken more pictures during fab.
