My old axles were rated at 2800 and I went with the 3200 lb axles.. I think with the newer rubber they use I could have gone with the 3500.. and still ride soft from all the research I did after I ordered the ones I got.

O well,, good reason to keep an eye what the wife loads up.. !

Just checked under my 1965 Caraval 17' and the bottom is almost touching the axel! Any idea of the cost for a new one?

FYI,,, got my new axles in,, gas lines and all in under 3 hours.. Did it by myself,, if I had help I could have cut that time in 1/2,,,

I did pre soak the axle bolts with pb blaster a few weeks ahead and that sure helped..

My Overlander now has daylight under it,, and gained almost 4" more clearance. Just totally happy..

As for the gas line I just took it lose from the water heater and arched it back after I pulled the axles.. Now it lays above the axles and has a chunk of rubber hose as a anti ware in case it would rub.. over each axle,,

Also,, the axles I got from Inland Rv fit too the "T"..
