Anyone flipped axles on PUMA

Hi,
As in the title, has anyone flipped over the axles on their PUMA? I have a 2013 259rbss with the axle's under the springs. I don't camp off grid or travel any really bad roads so I thought about flipping the axle to get the the trailer to sit a little lower to the road. Thoughts/advise welcome

thanks
Will

I dont see why you cant but all you will really gain is the thickness of the leaf springs.
2" ?

I think it would drop it about 5-6". Springs plus axle diameter. Use to do it to slam trucks to get 5-7" of drop.
I don't think I would recomend it because of how close the tires are now and would be to the floor. There isnt enough room there if I remember correctly. Plus your springs will sag/ break in/ settle after a while, and decrease the space further.
