got given a trailer for my spare sr4 but while we took her out she was bouncing evreywhere on the road and noticed she had no suspension on he,r someone had welded a hub straight to the axle

A lot of trailers have hubs (spindles actually) welded to axles. They usually use leaf springs to provide suspension. Is your axle bolted directly to the trailer frame?

Torsion axles (where the hub bolts to spring loaded lever type arm) are nice (no springs to rust out, squeak, rattle, slip), but a bit on the pricey side.
