Torsion Bar Axles eliminate the need for Leaf Springs on your trailer. A new Galvanized Torsion Axle is a great upgrade to any boat trailer or utility trailer.

This torsion axle also has a drain hole at the bottom of the V-Bend to purge any water that gets into the tubing, further helping to prevent rust.
