2013 wrs lift

I was wondering if anyone put there leaf spring front, center shackle, and rear leaf springs on the lower frame hole? I would like to get a bit more clearance. I am constantly having to stop at almost every dip to put boards out so I don't hit my steps.

Had the same issue you had with a tail dragger. My 2008 WPT28BR didn't have any extra mounting holes for the springs and equalizer, so I installed the Dexter over/under conversion kit for the 3" tube (K71-385-00, moved the axle under the springs) and Dexter E-Z Flex Tandem Axle suspension Kit (K71-652-00). Gained about 5" of ground clearance in the rear.

No loading issues with additional gate angle?

Depends on what you are loading. It will increase the gate angle. We have pulled/pushed a 1000 pound smoker up the gate. Anything self-powered would be a non-issue.

Yes everything I put up there would have a motor. I have my camper back at forest river for repairs. I just sent an e-mail to James Norman asking him to look into raising the camper. I did go camping at a campground that had a asphalt pad. the ramp came down onto the grass at a much higher pitch. My Road king did just skim at the angle. I think it would be fine a inch higher on level ground. anything else I haul has no problems with clearance. It just make me wonder why they put 2 sets of holes on the frame if you cant use them.
