When you say better suspension do you mean stiffer like to support more weight or do you mean something smoother so the trailer is less bouncy? Either way could you get me the axle diameter you have now or the capacity so that I can look into your best option? Most likely you are wanting it to be smoother which we may have a shock kit to help with.

So your best bet would be a Timbren axle less kit like the # A35RS545 you mentioned. This will be much smoother and fits your wheel size as well. This would match the capacity you'd need well which means the suspension wouldn't be overly bouncy or stiff.
