After checking with the dealer and taking his recommendation went to a local welding shop and had my Skylark raised 4". Beautiful welding. They welded two 1/4" steel plates each side - each about 6" long - bracketed the axel. Trailer sits close to level. I pull with a 2014 Toyota 4Runner and this aligned the thrust axis of the truck with the free perfectly so the trailer rides level. There is very little bounce transfer - much less than before. And I'm no longer worried about dragging the pipes going into the Forest Service "camp grounds.'
