The leaf spring center or spring seat refers to the measurement of your trailers leaf spring position in relation to your frame and as it mounts to the axle. This is determined by measuring from the center of one leaf spring, across the axle to the center of the other leaf spring. So center of driver side leaf spring, to the center of the passenger side leaf spring. See Video below for additional illustration and explanation. Your leaf spring measurement must fall inside the above measurements in order to properly work with this axle length. Dexter has determined the acceptable ranges to ensure the proper rating of your axle, and the available room on the axle to mount leaf springs.
