the problem i have with lowering the trailer is that the axles are centered on the trailer which means if i lower it when i go over inclines or down driveways the tail end will scrape bad on the pavement. i've discovered that if i don't have the trailer attached to my truck i can raise the front enough to get a car on it but then reattaching the trailer with a 3500 lb car on it is a challenge. my original plan was to buy a flatbed unit from a wrecker and attach it to the trailer frame. that cost almost as much as buying a powered tilt trailer. the one i priced out was 6400 plus tax. so i'm trying to build my own cheap alternative.
