One thing I have not noticed mentioned/asked. Kingsman19 are your axles bolted under the springs or on top of them? If the axles are bolted on top of the spring you do what is know a flipping the axles, by removing the axles and bolting them under the leaf spring and raise the trl about 2-4" depending.

my '84 5th wheel, i moved the axles. wasn't concerned abt the arch because tires tended to dry rot rather than wear out. with the trailer higher, it will change the stability. only thing i noticed was it bounced more.
on my current trailer, i would go to a spring shop and let them do it right. if u get the drift of what i did, it wasn't right.

That is why you need the flip kit. It places the spring perches on the other side of the axle so that they are still right side up.
