new springs

Last summers explosive tire shredding on the hauler trailer really left me scrambling to get it right again
put on four new tires and straightened out the fender. but she still acted like it was low on the rear and the right rear was tweaked somewhat,
so this week
i purchased new springs and out came the old and in came the new
I regained 1" of ride height and now the bed is level side to side
the new springs are the same weight capacity but have more leaves. I have a few prelim pics of the springs, I still need to load the truck and see how she sits again
hoping for a mild winter so i can bust some rust and repaint the trailer to match the m/h
