6000 lb.
I phoned Lippert.
They agreed that there should be more spread than what I have.
We agreed on an simple economic solution.
I’ll keep the springs but will drill new holes at the front and back hangers. Adding an inch at both locations.

I or they would never do this on a customers trailer. In that case we would cut the hangers off and weld on new ones.

Is the distance between the tires the biggest problem? Have you measured the length of your springs and check to see if you can get longer springs? Then you could move the hangers farther out and use the longer springs and get more distance between your tires. BTDT, And I’ve also changed the weight capacity of the springs to correct ride problems But you didn’t say anything about any other problems. Craig
