    I bought a trailer to haul 2 quads. The question is can I do the same with the springs as some trucks do the springs over axle. I want to get a much higher stance. It already has 15" tires or what can I do if I can to make it get higher? Thanks. It's a single axle.

    most you will need is new ubolts and new center pins. but yes flip it is possible. done lots of times. the new center pin is for the nut and head on wrong sides of the spring pack.

    If it has a cambered axle you will need to weld new spring perches on the top of the axle. if you just flip the axle over the camber will be out of whack and you will get some pretty bad handling and tire wear.
