Default Broken Leaf Spring.

Went to fix a flat tire and the axle fell to the ground. Leaf spring is broken on the rear axle that has trailer brakes also.

Can this be welded? or just replace the whole deal? looks like a 4 Leaf leaf spring.


Thanks
Russ

Stopped at Hitch House in Livonia and ordered some parts, right around $80 for a new leaf and 3 bolts with bushings.

Most leaf springs are a good bet to replace Pairs at the same time..
