You might want to try:

_Landing Gear Design Handbook_, by Norman S.  Currey, January 1982, published 
by Lockheed-Georgia, Marietta, Georgia 30063.  It's a highly readable book, 
covering every facet of landing gear design I can think of, at least (no great 
task :-)).        

I used this to dig up an answer to the great pre-spinning wheel debate last 
year. :-)
