Yes the shackle must be binding on the spring hanger bracket when the spring is force up from a bump in the road. Pivot bolts and or bushings are shot. Good part is those are cheap and easy to R/R. Pull one side apart before ordering parts, there are two sizes for the bushings in the spring eye. If you have a local trailer shop, dosen't have to be a boat shop, trailer suspension parts are all the same,, rv, horse,, sans a few galvy parts on some trailers, but thats the only difference,,,gregg

I bet there are a few good youtubes out there and a bunch of how to short cut a good install. Having the spring perch welded in the correct location is the challenging part, then it needs to be welded in place imho. A little 5' utility trailer may be just ok for a bolt on relocation kit, but I would weld it too just the same as one would for a travel trailer. If a guy can cut, weld and measure accurately then by all means have at it. But if those perch's are off center by even a little, there will be some binding on the springs they weren't ment to have. This is something done all the time with success by guys that are handy with fab'n and welding,,,gregg
