Wagon/buckboard parts needed

I would like to build a buckboard, however, I am having problem finding some parts. I can't seem to find a 5th wheel or something similar for the fromt axle. I am also looking for the larger springs that mount between the body and axles. Does anyone know of a good place to buy these two items?

Thanks
Jeremy

Depending where you live, I would try the amish. What size of wagon are you trying to build? If its draft size i'd look at like draft equipment sites and what not.

It will be used with a 15.5-16 hand horse, may build it so that I can also use it with a smaller team. I have looked on many of the draft sites, but can't find the 5th wheel anywhere.

Those people make GREAT products. We just got a cinderella carriage from them and it is AMAZING.

As for the springs, look up trailer part suppliers or spring shops. The leaf springs on carriages are smaller versions of what are on trucks and trailers.
