Yes, it is confusing. And that is why I asked the OP what he had.
I also have rubber torsion, so understand your angle.
But ours are just barely heavy enough for the GVWR of our camper, and I often wonder what will happen after ten or twenty thousand miles of hammering are put on those rubbers.
At least ours are Al-Ko axles, and not Lippert junk.

When you replace the springs, MAKE SURE you replace ALL 7 (14 total) of the spring pivot bolts with "wet" ones. (The ones that have a hole drilled in them with a grease fitting in the ends)
