Solution for Lifting 2017 Keystone Cougar Trailer with Dexter Axles


I have a 2017 keystones cougar 359 mbi and would like to lift it 2 inches or so. Trailer springs already sit on top of axle . My question is do they sell spacer blocks that will fit between perch and spring and put longer u bolts Both axles are #7000 Dexter axles

I may have a solution for you, however we do not currently have any standard, universal spacer blocks available that can be used to lift your trailer.

We do have some custom lift kits available, depending on the type of Dexter axles you have on the trailer. For example, if you have the #12 Torflex axle with a 5,500 to 7,000 pound capacity, you can use the Dexter Torflex Lift Kit # K71-725-02. This lift kit will raise the trailer frame to provide about 3-1/8 inches of additional clearance. All of the necessary hardware is included.

I have attached the written installation instructions for this kit so you can get a better idea as to how they install. I have also included a link that will take you to our available selection of Torflex Lift Kits so you can see if one might work.

Otherwise, the best way to lift your trailer will be to simply replace your existing hangers with longer ones. I have attached a link that will take you to our hanger selection that you can look through if needed.
