My trailer has two issues. The deck is a little high and would like to lower it some, so the ramp isnt as steep, then the other issue is the axles only have an inch or so of space before it hits the frame.
I was thinking we were going to have to raise up the fenders, but now that I think about it all we need to do is install longer leaf spring spacers.
I'm going to install 4" drop axles, so Dexter axle only requires 3" of frame clearance, then I can ditch the taller 235/80r16 tires for smaller 225/75r15 tires and that should make the trailer 1.25" lower then subtract the existing 1-1.5" space the axles currently have and that should drop the trailer about 2.5" plus keep the axle from hitting the frame.
Opinions? Is my thinking correct on adding the longer spring hangers is all it takes technically? Btw this trailer has a C channel frame.
