Once you tweak yours up, they should be great. (I did have to change the trailer weather cover because of the about 3 or so inch lift to the AS.)

Mi Minuet "grew up" almost 5 inches with the new axle. I was able to re-installed the spare support that was left to me from the previous owner. It went under the trailer, in the front, and I now have enough ground clearance to use it instead of trying to find place in the Explorer for the spare tire... I will have to build another little step though or put longer "feet" to it te be able to enter the trailer easily... and I will also have to replace a few rivets that have not resisted the bad treatment from my previous axle...!!!

Thanks to you Jim:
I have tried to adjust the brakes... and while I have not yet done a test drive... they now look a lot better in my driveway... At least, I can feel them... Thanks a lot... As a (retired) veterinarian, I am used to fix animals... but brakes are different... and easier to work with...!!! At least... they don't bite...!!!

Ok I'm Back
I picked up my 3200lb axles at 2pm today. The bill of laden calls for 481 lbs for the pair NO PALLET. They set them on my flat with a towmotor. Hummmmm this is gonna be interesting. Think I better start eat'n my spinach.
