I have the same truck and a 2014 rockwood 8280 ws. Got a 3 " lift kit from dexter for 270.00 bucks and solved the problem. Pulls great. About 6 " rail clearance.

Glad to hear that works! I have Alko axles, I wonder if that kit would work or I'd be better off just getting some steel from a welding shop.

Just call FR they will recommend a kit for you. My TT was about 6 inches high in front. Almost level now. Good. Fix for me.

You can buy riser kits for the 5er or make your own.
I recently had the rear of my truck lowered 2" by having the rear shackles replaced.

It's less expensive to get a lift kit for TT and also tire clearance on trailer is better. Kind of expensive to get new coil springs for truck. And truck doesn't sage very much when adding the trailer. Good luck.
