Car hauler axle troubleshooting

I'm retired from the Military. I weld as a hobby and do other mechanic work that comes my way. I come across a problem that I don't have an answer to every once in awhile. I borrowed the Command Sergent Majors car hauler and it developed a axle problem. I hauled a very small skid steer on it and when I unloaded it, the axles poped up uneven. I took the tires off to get a good close up look and couldn't see a thing wrong. Now it does it when the CSM hauls round bails of hay for his horses. I need to correct this problem But can't see what is wrong. Anyone have any ideas?

From a Viet Nam vet.......take a look at the shackles, you may have inverted or bent one, or collapsed a spring.

Is it a Spring or a Torflex Axle? (here is what a Torflex looks like)-

Car Hauler suspension troubles.

Thanks for the info! My brother came over and we believe that we had inverted the shackles. So we changed them to run the other way. We could see wear marks that were from lots of use so we took that as our Q and jacked it up and did the flip flop. I want to thank everyone for their input on this. It is very much appreciated. Yours Truly, nhunt
