Got a new axle on my and I am not sure what I got

Well, I got the new axle and am still not sure I got what I wanted. It still appears that the front and baclk tire are not on the same plane. (just an observation with the naked eye). The new axle does not appear to have cured the extreme toe-in problem that I had before. I am guessing that the tire will still wear on the outside as it did before the replacement. I don't know enough about this to do a thorough job of analyzing it. Andy had some suggestions before but I was too new to understand what he was saying. jc

If it is any solace everyone gets fooled in life , the object is to get fooled the least amount of times possible. Hope your problem was solved and it is always easy to say that was too much or not enough after the fact. I hope your trailer is fixed.
