The starting angle can be increased to a maximum of 35 degrees.
If the torsion axle is bad, a new axle will raise the trailer about 3 to 3 1/2 inches.
But, the lowest part of the trailer, is still the axle tube.
Raising the trailer a foot or more, above the axle, as an example, still would not change the distance between the ground and the axle tube.
If you have a common drop axle, flipping it would give you additional ground clearance, but the alignment would be off.
You would have to correct the toe-in and camber alignments, as they both would be reversed.
