I have heard of people "flipping their axels" to get trailer higher but I have no clue how to do it or if it can be done with the suspension you have.

I contacted Jayco and asked if this was possible on the HT with Mor/Ryde and they told me no.

I was looking to do the same thing because mine runs nose high also. I adjusted my hitch down all the way. Also my Eagle HT already had axels flipped from factory. Gonna look into spacers from a place here in the valley to level it out. Let me know what you find out.

I too would like to raise my FW, maybe 4"-6". My FW come from Jayco with the axles under the leaf springs. The best way I can think of is to build a box steel frame and attach it to the trailer frame and attach the leaf springs to it. I have seen this done on the Internet where people have done this to their own trailers but they have more tools than I do. I don't know of anyone who has some sort of Kit.

I hear the CRE4000 is not that expensive an upgrade.

CRY adds 4" of movement absorption, but I'm not sure if it actually adds any lift.
If I ever get the courage to lift my FW a shock and spring upgrade may also make the list.
