Do Trailer Axles have to be Aligned After Installing Torflex Lift Kit K71-707-02

Question:

I would like to purchase this item from you. I would be installing it on a 2018 Lance 2375. Before I do I need to know if the axles will need to be realigned after the install is complete ? If so is there instructions or a video to show how to do this.

Torflex Lift Kit - Tandem Axle - 2-5/8" Lift Item # K71-707-02 doesn't require that you have your axles aligned after installation but it is good practice to do so.

It is actually easier than you might think. Basically, measure from center of the trailer coupler to the center of the axle on each end. Be sure to measure from exactly the same point on the coupler! You want the measurements to be exact up to 1/16 of an inch difference. On a tandem axle trailer once you have the front axle straight you can measure from the center of it to the center of the rear axle on both sides and again make sure the difference is no greater than 1/16 of an inch.

I have included a picture showing where to measure to the first axle.
