Recommended 4 Inch Lift and 13 Inch Wheels for 2002 Snowbear Utility Trailer


i have a 2002 snowbear utility trailer with 1 1/2 diameter axle with 12 wheels. The trailer is rated at GVWR 2090. I want to raise the trailer 3-4 inches and install 13 wheels and am interested in changing from the existing slip spring suspension to double eyelet leaf springs with shackles. The mounting holes for the existing system are 24 on center. Do you have a suspension kit that will work or other suggested solutions? Thanks in advance,

For your trailer, the transition to larger wheels, different leaf spring system and larger tires is possible. You will however need to weld a new spring seat on the top of your axle for compatibility and unfortunately we don't have anything for a 1-1/2 inch diameter axle. Without that you won't get any change to the height you desire.

The oly way to get your lift and suspension I can offer is to use the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - 4" Lift Spindle - Regular Tires - 2,000 lbs # ASR2KHDS04. This system bolts to your frame and requires a 2 inch square tube between assemblies in the integrated holes. Then you can use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - Pre-Greased # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K. Then you can get your 13 inch wheels like # LHAW165 for example.
