I ordered new axles for my 72 29 footer cost about 1150 bucks delivered to my door for 3200 pound axels, hubs, brakes and shocks. I probably should have gone to a heavier rating but by the time I figured that out it was too late. Besides the 3200 pound axles maxed the budget.
I installed them in less than a day with the aid of my 16 year old.
This gave me about 2 inches more ground clearance than the collapsed suspension. Have not had it on the road yet so I don't know how it will pull. Not much way to mis-install them so far as I can see. I will most likely have the alignment checked anyway but it would be hard to change short of bending the tubes.
Took about 3 weeks for the axles to arrive.
Contact Jim Kitzmiller 937-596-6125 x102. Tell him what year/model/length your trailer is and the axle rating and brake size.
New wheels and tires are the next money pit.
