Flipping Trailer Axles
It's often done for more ground clearance. But also, these days, pickup trucks are sometimes higher than they used to be years ago so flipping the axle is also done when someone with an older trailer gets a new truck. Thus allowing the trailer to tow level again.
The process basically involves unbolting one end of each spring, unbolting the axle and removing the axle from the springs. The springs are reinstalled.
Two new axle perches are welded to the top of the axle counter to the old perches. The axle is then bolted under the spring.
The above is done for each axle.
