i think i would like the lower trailer too. if 4" was actually 4 and 2 was 2. after looking again, my new 4" drop actually turns into almost 5" with the thicker axle diameter 2 3/8 round vs. 1.5 square plus the saddle mounts add .5 or so. the original axle drop looks more like 1.5 than 2 as well. multiple small oversights added up to being way off. and with all this lowering, i would have to have lower profile tires to fit into the wheel wells. 24" diameter tires would leave me with less than 2" clearance in the wells. since we will be using bias ply whitewalls, they usually run around 28" diameter at least the ones with the proper load range for this trailer. what is a good clearance in between the tire and wheel well?
hope that was coherent
