We change the starting angle on new axles.

Usually, the trailer is raised about 3 inches with them, from worn out rubber rod height.

any quick thoughts on patching this floor wood rot ?

I also raised the axles 3" when I installed new. (I welded). (I used this as an opportunity to fix the frame sag by welding in 6' x 3" angle to hold the frame straight)

There is a bolt in kit available to raise the axles 2".

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......
