Could someone with a cruiser travel trailer tell me which way the shackles are facing at the point they attach to the springs and are your springs on top of the axle or underneath??????

My husband propped the trailer up on blocks to take all 4 tires off to replace them and noticed that one shackle was up and one was down when he put the tires on ,then as he lowered the trailer the down one popped up and now doesn't know which way they go. And of course the closest crossroads dealer closes at 5pm. Please help!!!!!!!!!!

Does your trailer have the Equa-Flex suspension? If so are you talking about the attachment points on that?

no problem it only took a minute and so many have helped me here it is the least I could do.



Heck the picture isnt even dry yet! LOL oh yea forget that it is digital! LOL



Sometimes they do flip when you lift up the trailer it isnt anything to worry about as I have seen on line. Sometimes they dont flip back until you take it for a ride, so nothing to worry about unless it doesnt ever flip then Id have the dealer look at it.

If youapply the trailer brakes only it will help in putting those where they go.



I think I miss understood what you were asking about, I thought you were saying the ubolts were turned.
