Well first off, are they Dura-torque's, or the leaf spring style? I believe 1961
was the year they changed, but Airstream never did anything all at once so your 1961
model could just as easily have gone either way. A really good resource is here: Frequently Asked Questions
Also, Andy has a good article at Inland if you do happen to have the Dura-Torques: Dura Torque Axle
If you've got leaf springs, any RV mechanic that you trust can check it out.
