Replacing leaf springs

Was headed to the lake today when my leaf springs broke in half on the left side. Does anyone know where to get new ones? And how hard are they to replace? Thanks

Yeah that's what I did too. I also found later there was a local shop that custom made them and were a little cheaper...

Thanks!! Should I put a heavier spring on since this one broke? Or would that not work just trying to figure out a way to not have this happen again.

Unless you load a lot of extra gear in the boat you will be fine with the same spring. These springs do break occasionally, but not that often.

You don't have monoleaf springs do you? If so they were recalled and replaced with conventional leaf packs. I think the recall is still in effect even for very old boats.

To big or strong a spring can cause trailer to bounce ... Not safe
