I just replaced the 4 shocks on my Shasta BH 5'r and the first time out, I hit both bed rails. Nothing major, just a slight indent on the nose of the 5'r. This was leaving my house, so I have driven it before! My pin will allow me to lower it about 1" (distance between bolt holes), but I am worried that I'll upset the rake (for lack of a better word) of the trailer - front to back. Since day one, I have been under the recommended distance between the rail and nose (can't recall number), but I never hit. My weight is within 200 lbs on each vehicle axle and both trailer axles, so I would rather not start dumping weight rearward.
I thought about a flip kit, but i am not sure if it will work w/ shocks (the bottom mount is on the plate under the springs).
