Rear axle. Before adding the washers, these were the weights:
Front (steering) axle: 3080 (GAWR 3500)
Rear (drive) axle: 4320 (GAWR 3800)
After adding washers:
Front axle: 3340
Rear axle: 3840
So now both axles are within GAWR. Also, front and rear fender heights were equal before loading the trailer and were equal after loading the trailer. (38" before, 37.5" after).
I realize I am right at the upper limit of rear axle weight and I don't see how I can get any more weight distribution. I think my payload is just a bit too much -I usually carry 2 Honda generators, 5 gallons of gas, fresh water, me, wife and two 80 pound dogs. I am towing a Flying Cloud 28 which has probably one of the highest tongue weights of all the Airstreams.
I'd sure hate to have to trade my 2015 F150 that's less than a year old for an F250.
