Trailer Lift Kit for 2017 Sundowner Tandem-Axle Horse Trailer  


Im wanting to raise my tandem axle 2017 Sundowner 3 Horse Trailer 3, the GVWR plate states I have 5200# axles. They are torsion bar axles but I cannot find a mfg plate, tag or stamp to verify the axles are dexter. Any suggestions?


Expert Reply:

The key to installing a lift kit on a tandem trailer with torsion axles is confirming that the axles use side-mounted brackets. Torsion axles that mount from the top cannot use lift kits.

We offer 2-7/8-inch Lift Kit # K71-724-02 for # 11 Torflex axles rated from 4,100-6,000-lbs. These can be installed so long as your axles do not use 3-inch tall brackets.

Often Dexter stamps the axle tubes with the brand and part number and this stamping could easily be obscured by dirt.
