Teardrop Trailer Part 8

The trailer is still very tall for a woman of my height.  I was talking to a friend who is well versed on suspensions.  He suggested that I use a 4" drop under slung axel.  This would drop the trailer height another 4".

After searching the internet for several days, I was not finding an axel that would fit my trailer with 46.5" spring centers.

My friend offered to cut down an axel he had in his shop to fit my trailer.  He came to visit in February and brought the axel.

I now have a 3000# 4" drop, Dexter axel.
