Sorry about that.

These photo's are self explanatory.

Wrong axle, under rated axle, torsion arms as high as they can go, and no shocks.

Notce that lugs nuts are all sheared. The wheel shows the excessive heat generated by the loose lug nuts.

And, the huge container on the rear end certainly made it's contribution as well.

But, the trailer did have new tires. So...........

The condition of the axle, etc, was simply put, looking for a place to have an accident.
