Suspension issues.....or not?

My 2005 38' TH is a triple axle. I haven't seen lots and lots of other suspensions to compare from but the suspension on mine is nothing spectacular visually whereby some suspensions can be. Matter of fact, the suspension on my TH is kinda boring with its short shackles and how everything sets really close to the frame and there is no optional height adjustments. My concern is that the equalizer between the spring packs aren't setting level and indicate as if the nose is way too high even though the trailer is perfectly level. I can even lower the nose of the trailer beyond level and the equalizer sets as if the nose is still too high. Is there something I'm not understanding? Everything looks straight.

Are both sides the same? Have you inspected the springs for wear? You may just need to lube everything and possibly consider a wet bolt kit while you're at it.

Yes, both sides set the same. Is a wet bolt kit simply a geaseable bolt?

Yes. It is a bolt and bushing with a zerk fitting on it.
