About Torsion Axle
When you agreed to help grandma move house, you were not prepared for quite how much stuff she intended to stack in the back of your trailer… bad move. Your trailer's worn-out torsion axle simply was not up to the task, and now your grandma's possessions are scattered all over the freeway. A torsion axle is a form of combined axle and suspension system, often used in trailers. The axle bar twists within a steel sleeve lined with rubber, and this deflects the suspension. Such axles are durable and easy to fit, require little maintenance, offer an adjustable height, and have an adaptable spring rate for a smooth ride, which is useful for when your trailer is at capacity. As an added benefit, because the axle unit affixes to the trailer, it provides additional rigidity and support. However, over time, the axle can deteriorate, and eventually it is necessary to replace it. Fortunately, it is easy to pick up a torsion axle from the vast inventory on eBay. Then, all you have to worry about is explaining to grandma where her favorite potted plant went.
