The axle sits on top of the leaf springs. Relocating it UNDER the spring packs is an easy and cheap way to lift the trailer. There's other details to consider (jack height for instance) but it will keep me from worrying about dragging the tail off my trailer. I came REAL close backing the trailer into the driveway this afternoon, as theres a little curb to get over and the rear axle of the truck had to go over a speed bump at about the same time.

Hitch height on our truck is a little high for this trailer too. A hitch with more drop to it would be recommended, but flipping the axle will solve that problem too.

I also noticed we have stabilizing jacks on all four corners....but I keep reading that folks want to add them to the front, or that this model only comes with rear jacks.

Did we luck out with a free upgrade from the previous owner?
