Need some input on a dilema in which I've found myself in.
When I was designing my CT, I only invisaged that I would need springs rated up to 1000kg.
Typically, as most backyard engineering has it, I've over engineered most of my trailer and the end result is that when loaded, it weighs approx 1100kg
I have ALKO, 'outback' 5 leaf springs which are rated at 1200kg.
Can these be reliably used on the trailer being so close to the rated values of the springs ?
If I have to upgrade to 7 leaf springs, how much difference in trailer height can I expect coming from 5 leaf ?
