    Got this trailer a couple weeks ago and need to add some springs..Trailer has 2 3500lb axles. So will 4 2000lb springs be enough or do I need stronger ones?? Also is there anyone who has a "kit" that you could go buy and it would have everything to add them on, or will I have to piece everything together..

    youll want a little bigger of a spring. Northern tool should have a kit.

    and when you get the bank, ditch the car tires for trailer tires... you'll like the difference.

    +1 mine is setup solid like the one above and just switching to actual trailer tires has made a huge difference in ride quality.

    Agri supply will have a whole kit. comes with shackles, u-bolts and spring plates, spring perches, spring mounts/hangers, hardware, etc.

    IMO, no, I'd put suspension on it first.

    wouldn't hurt to try, but you won't be satisfied until you put a suspension under it. my trailer is not bad with the jeep loaded, but empty its a PAINFUL ride.
