I like the 105 because they mount outside of the frame and give a wider position on the axle. It's the same spring....and trailers have nearly no wear unlike springs from a deuce front. Deuce front is under the frame, maybe 8" narrower.

The angle of the rear shackle matters for quality of ride and shocks should be as close to wheel as possible and still clear. I'm reversing my hubs for dish out which gives me a bit more clearance to my shock.

But most of all, the perch adjusts the drive flange to take up for the angle at the bottom of the spring when mounted. With 5*, I think it makes less than 1.5*, otherwise it's 6.5. I have some 2" with that taper, so just had to cut to length.
