You have torsion axles. If they are Dexter Torflex brand, then you can probably buy a lift kit from Dexter that will raise the trailer 2 5/8th inches.
Dexter Axle - Trailer Axles and Running Gear Components - #10 Torflex Lift Kit

If they are some other brand, contact the manufacturer to see if a lift kit is available.

I would not simply add spacers. Too dangerous. But if a lift kit is not available for your axle, then I might fabricate a different side mount hanger to lower the torsion bar a few inches.

As far as the torsion bar spring set up (travlin) you might also be able to tighten them up a turn or two to get some height. You'd have to check with the manufacturer.
