Question: How do I know if drop-heel or double-bend shafts are correct for my vehicle?
Answer: It’s a general rule of thumb that if the body of the carriage protrudes in front of the front cross spring, the double bend shafts would be required to give the necessary clearance to the cross bar when turning. A doctor’s buggy which has the body behind the spring could use the drop-heel shafts.
