Whats your thoughts on useing steel spacer blocks between the spring and axle to raise the 5th trailer height alittle.

I heard from another forum some people on this forum have done it.

I have a 4x4 and my trailer axles are on the bottom of the springs by factory design.

I think id go only 2" if I tryed it , though I heard it might put more stress/leverage on the spring pearches when turning sharp. I could weld a cross brace between the pearchs also.

Lift blocks are a huge no-no. No matter how far you go up, it puts way more stress on suspension parts.
