V-Cross Vibe Torsion Axle ride height.

Does anyone have any brilliant advice on how to raise the ride height of the V-Cross Vibe 6500 series with torsion bar suspension. My dealer told me the only option would be to weld a new spacer, but general internet research suggests that the bars that hold the tires (new to torsion bars and don't know the lingo yet) could be removed and rotated to give more clearance.

Don't think you can adjust the rubber mounted torsion axles whether they be Dexter or Alko. You are thinking of a steel torsion bar suspension which could be adjusted. These are just a formed tube surrounded by a rubber type material enclosed by a steel tube. The most common method of raising your suspension is a lift kit which just raises the whole trailer on your existing suspension system. The kit consists of 2x4 steel tubing and 2x2steel tubing welded to the frame and bolting your existing suspension to the steel tubing kit.
