Raising fiver

I've got an Eazlift GOOD2GO gooseneck adapter: 15"/7500 lb. For sale or trade for similar 17". I get in some tight spots and want a little more height.

2013 Montana pulled by 2016 2500 Silverado.

Any other ideas how to gain height?

Anybody put additional spacers between axles and leaf springs? Looks like all I need to do is get 8 longer U-bolts and weld in the 4 spacers. I'll change my 15" gooseneck adapter to a 17" and gain truck bed rail clearance I want.

Opinions please.

Jack

Don't know what fiver you have, but many have 'flipped' the axles to where they are under the springs instead of on top. Same result as blocks...
There is always the option to put a spacer tubing between the shackle mounts and the frame--simple, but needs competent welding.

2013 Montana; Dexter axles are "overslung"- 5 leafs on top of axle. Looks like no easy fix; so, I'm headed to Redneck Trailers to discuss options on Dexter axles-probably cut off hangers and weld on longer units plus larger spacer.

Never been a fan of raising a trailer height. My Teton is low and very stable. No problem with dragging in rear.

When I was towing with a LDT I put a flat bed on mine. Problem solved. Also after having a flat bed it is all i want now.

routemaster-checked Correct Track site and appears that will raise trailer 2"; was that your experience?

Owned (3) flatbeds for work and they work great; but, not for me since retired.
