We use Eye to Eye springs on all trailer tandem setups because they provide load sharing across all axles. Tandem trailer slipper springs do not provide load sharing.
Example: Tandem Slipper Springs. Park the front wheel a tandem trailer on the kerb and the back wheel will be in the air, putting the total weight on the front axle.
Tandem Eye to Eye springs. Front wheel on the kerb shares the load on both axles so the back wheel is in the gutter and not in the air.
Load sharing is important because the trailer setup is constantly sharing the load and bumps across the entire tandem trailer assembly. A two tonne setup will require 2 x one tonne axles.
