Installing the frame kit, will do "NOTHING" for rear end separation.
It won't fix it and it won't prevent it.
The frame kit also, "WILL NOT" strighten up wrinkles in the sides.
IF, and that's a big IF, you wanted to add a frame kit, to get rid of the side wrinkles, then you "MUST" raise the rear end so that the tires are almost off the ground.
Then, and only then, could you add a frame kit, that "MIGHT" help reducing the side wrinkles, when the tires are back on the ground.
The frame kit takes care of the frame, only within it's length, and only if properly installed. The rear of the trailer is still free to sag, if it wants to,
To me, the only purpose of the frame kit, is to allow you to carry more weight, over the axles.
Then that brings up another subject. A frame kit will do nothing to correct what bad axles, will do to the trailer.
If you wanted to carry that extra weight over the axles, then the axles would have to be replaced to a higher rating.
Your axles are rated at 3200 pounds each, which really is not enough to start with anyway.
3500 pound ratings would be far superior.
