There is a similar post you should look at in the same forum. F350 towing WS8289 5er
Get all the numbers off the axles and call Dexter, they are very helpful.

Like B&B, I have a lift kit that was installed at Goshen by techs at last years rally. You can find one for yours on eTrailer.com. Two sizes, 2 3/8 " and 3 1/4 " IIRC. Bolts on.
Travel safe

I love the ride of the dexter axles but have an issue. Only have 1" clearance. Called dexter. They said I have only 1 braking axle and they are a 22 degree down 4000#. They gave me the name of a dexter dealer. They info dexter gave me is not correct. Both my axles are braking (all 4 wheels have brakes and wires going to them). Got to the dealer and he said my axles are 10 degree down but are at their limit. They suggest going with 5200# axles with a lift kit but keeping the 10 degree down. Dexter said I should go with the 32 degree down which would raise the unit 1 1/4" or the 45 degree down that would be a 1 7/8" rise. But they think my axles are 22 degree and only 1 braking. Do they really know what they are talking about? Dexter has tried to be helpful which I am thankful for but someone has incorrect info. Guess I will have to figure it out myself

I don't know for a fact but I think many newer trailers are higher angle to provide more clearance. When I see many new trailers they all look like a steeper angle.

I need more lift and I am not sure whether a riser kit or a higher degree down is better.

Note that the lift kit at E Trailer for the number 10 axle states " do not use on axles with a 3 inch bracket". My axles have a 3 inch bracket and I suspect it's the reason I was told not to use a Dexter lift kit. I suspect maybe side load issues.

The #6 is probably a build or line code. The 10H (#10) is your axle as I stated earlier. 10 is the axle size H is the designation within the #10 size.

Your axles are a 10 degree down (on the label). Dexter makes 10, 22, 32 and 45 degree down for their axles. With my dexter axles at 22 down they said if I go to a 45 degree down it will add 1 7/8" height. Because my axles are right at their weight limit I am going with a heavier axle too. You may also find that if your current axles are at their limit they may be "bottomed out" like mine are. If that is the case you may get almost 3" going with a heavier axle (that does't bottom out) and from 10 to 45 degree. I talked to dexter and they were very helpful.
