    3500# Trailer Axle Modification

    Just wondering has anyone ever removed the axle tube mounts from the top of the axle and re-welded them on the bottom to switch from over slung to under slung? Or would you just weld on a new set and leave the other ones?

    Thanks.

    I have cut them off an repositioned them and after I was finished I decided I would never do that again!
    The new ones are too cheap!

    I added new ones and left the old mounts when I wanted to lower a motorcycle trailer.

    Thanks. I decided to flip the axles since they are straight axles with camber. I have to lengthen the axles anyway. I will remove the camber when I do it. I don't like cambered axles and the added bigger diameter center piece will stiffen it up. This is a low use trailer so I'm not worried about tire wear either.
