I would just buy one and do it myself... just make sure you mark it really well and then measure before you tighten down the Ubolts.....

I believe there is a trailer shop in Peotone IL, right on route 50... at least there used to be.

There were about 50 hits for trailer repair in the Yellowpages too, but I had heard that they do a good job at the Peotone place if they are still open.

Northern tool has everything you need to fix it... It's just a matter of an R&R job... Might take 1 guy a couple hours if you have a decent tool set... If you do it out of the kitchen tool drawer it might take a little longer...

I saw an ad for a repair shop in Bridgeview, somewhere around 89th and Oketo, the ad was in Outdoor Notebook(free publication)
