Can Spindle On Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System Be Reversed

Question:

Desinging a bed trailer for handling heavy, bulky items similae to safes. Regarding Timbren P/N ASR3500S05....3500lb axleless trailer suspension system. Is the spindle mounting bolt pattern uniform so the spindles can be mounted reversed so the spindle is on the same side as the nut extending from the Timbren unit...ie opposite side of the vertical frame mounting plate? Will this reverse mounting have any impact on wheel alignment? Is the Timbren unit adjustable for wheel alignment toe-in, camber, etc. or is it fixed? Are there actual Timbren mounting and alignment instructions available for downloading? Thanks.

You can reverse the mounting of the spindle mounting on the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System, part # ASR3500S05. I verified this with my contact at Timbren.

The toe-in will need to be set when installing this system and it comes with shims that allow you to adjust the camber. The installation instructions that are included explain how these adjustments are made.
