Welcome to the Jayco forums.
Wow, can't say that I've heard of a leaf spring hanger breaking off....., but leaf spring shackles I have. Do you have any pics that you could post?
The root cause could be a couple of things, but the location of the break may narrow it down (bad weld, bad metal, side-load torque, etc.). If they are the long hangers it may pay to have them reinforced if you load heavy and tow off-road.
One good investment I would recommend would be a Dexter HD Wet Bolt/Bronze Bushing/Shackle Kit..., getting rid of the cheap OEM nylon bushings is another benefit of the kit. Nothing like being able to shoot some grease in to these critical areas:http://www.dexteraxle.com/heavy_duty_suspension_kits
Look at the difference between the OEM and Dexter HD shackles:
Dexter also offers complete HD Suspension Kits as well: http://dexteraxle.com/e_z_flex_equalizers
If you decide to go with a Dexter HD kit, the following link will help guide you through the install if you decide to do it yourself: http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fu...d/21609645.cfm
Hope this helps.
