Lifting two inches, SV230 Surveyor

Hi, I have a SV230 Surveyor trailer that is a bit too low to the ground to get into some of the areas I like to camp. The trailer has a tandem axle, torsion bars so I was told the only way to add a bit of more space is by using a lift kit (plates between the axles and the actual trailer) however I'm having a hard time finding on line a ready made lift kit for my trailer. Appreciate any good information regarding a lift kit. Thanks guys

A Google search of "torsion axle lift kit" provided these results.

I have an SV260 and find the same, potential dragging the back bumper and sandpads when entering a driveway with a slight incline or dip to well as sewer outlet is too low to flow well when flushing. Not sure whether it's prudent to do this to a 2004 model.

There is/was a lift kit for the torsion axles from Forest River. The part number is FT22.The Surveyor trailers came with an option for the lift brackets-you may be able to get your Surveyor dealer to order the bracket kits.
