X2! Also, don't know what the Load Range is on your 15's, but if they are D's, you might not have enough tire capacity with 14's. LR D in 14's are hard to find.

Again, this sounds as if this unit has the leaf type springs. Leaf springs are a good suspension system, they do require more room between the top of the axles and the bottom of the unit. This is just the nature of leaf springs. The "Torsion" type axles do not have the leaf springs, just the rubber type torsion mounts between the axle and the spindles. These work fine also and allow the unit to sit closer to the ground. Check to see which you have.
