The most cost effective option I have for you would be to install a 1" taller hanger. I have linked a page that will display all of our leaf spring hangers for you. The only thing you will want to do is measure your current hangers and choose a set that is 1" taller. You can use the facets to narrow down your selection.

The best option you have to raise the height of your trailer would involve installing an axle flip kit if your leaf springs are below the axle. For this, I recommend using the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit part # K71-384-00 for 2-3/8" diameter axles and part # K71-385-00 for 3" diameter axles.

Unfortunately, the only lift kits we have for torsion axles are designed to work with Dexter axles not AL-KO axles. In order to lift a Dexter torsion axle, I recommend using the Torflex Lift Kit part # K71-707-02. If you would like to convert to a standard axle, I would need to the length of axle you want in order offer my recommendation.
