Replacing RV Trailer Suspension Bushings

Bushing replacement ... The trailer is jacked up and placed on jack stands. This allows the axles to hang freely so that the work can proceed.

Tires and wheels removed ... the axle is supported by a floor jack and the spring hanger bolt is removed ...

The old worn out bushing is driven out with the new bushing ...

There are 7 bushings per side on a tandem axle trailer ... 14 in total. The spring hanger bolts and nuts should be replaced when replacing the bushings.

Inspect the other components of the suspension system ... these shackles are worn out ... the holes are elongated and will result in too much suspension play ...
