RE: Suspension hangers

On my Heartland Sundance all the hangers are leaning inward. Once I noticed, I have watched very closely and 6 yrs have gone by with no issues. Afterward I have checked lots of trailers and found that it's not that uncommon. The only reason I can see for that happening from the factory is that the brackets on the axles being slightly off from the width of the frame of the trailer so they just bend them to attach and let it go. It's definately not right but probably wont hurt anything. Thank you

RE: Suspension hangers

Thx for the information. I checked the frame and it looks good. There are supports welded on an angle on the bottom of the I beam frame

RE: Suspension hangers

It's at my dealer now as the trailer still has warranty. I just wanted feedback in case they try and blame me!!!

RE: Suspension hangers

My only concern is the leaf springs don't sit square in the hanger now. Im worried about the extra tension on the bolts

Suspension hangers

I have a 16 kz Durango fifth wheel The leaf spring hangers on the drivers side are straight and square. The 3 hangers on the passenger side are not square. All 3 brackets look the same. The metal is straight with no signs of bent metal or a cracked weld. The factory square tubing that the hangers are welded to are also straight and level. The trailer hasn't been curbed and hasn't hit any potholes. I'm careful when turning so I don't put too much stress on the axles. The trailer scaled under the max weight My opinion is that these hangers weren't installed right from the factory. If the 3 hangers on the one side are bent from road force, wouldn't the other side be bent as well? Tire wear is fine. Opinions? Pictures Pics for reference
