Spent the afternoon pulling the axle and moving it under the leaf springs. Also replaced the very worn shackles. Gained 3.5in. I have one question for the suspension experts on the forum. What torque do you use for the axle u-bolts? So far I've torqued to 40ft/lbs. I was concerned about overnighting the bolts and stretching them out. What do you guys think? Time for some larger wheels! Probably going to move up to 12in wheels load C. Should leave me enough suspension travel for my driveway curb...lol My stabs should still be fine, but the single portable folding step we were using is now far too short! Door sill hight with new wheels/tires will be at 22in. Also now have an issue with the tongue jack not being long enough. At max extension, the trailer is perfectly level.... Thinking of getting the caster wheel instead of the foot, that should add a few inches. Or replace with a taller jack?
