    ..i currently have a 6×10 haulmark transport cargo trailer.reg says 2990 gvwr. it has 205/75d14 tires on it.,,,,,my problem is my garage door opening is 84 " high .but the trailer measure aprox 86 1/2 inches high. i was able to get it into my garage just barley by flattening the tire. but makes it very unpractical to use having to re-inflate and deflate with every use. have to keep it garaged due to HOA rules i'm thinking of changing the rims and tires from the 14 inch to a 12 inch in the homes of gaing the clearance i need to pull it in and out without messing with the tire inflation…… but can my trailer run safely on a 12 inch tire with a d rating ? also will the 12 inch give me the additional aprox i need to clear the garage height ?…….any thoughts or recommendations?

    nice video.. wish i could find one to help me with a question i sure most people deal with.. im going from a 3500lb axle to 7k. i had one out back (new with brakes) but it to long.. so i need to cut it down.. but i just cant get a good answer on internet where to cut out the 6-8" to shorten it.. do i cut it out of center or off to one side cause of the chamber (bend or arch up) it has.. think chamber is name of it.. oh ya i already got new seats to weld on to get them where they need to be..i got a pipe that fits tight inside of axle after i cut it. think ill do some plug welds to get it good.. thanks for any info/advice u got..

    Researching how to determine if my 1964 Trotwood 14 needs new axles and leaf springs. Wish etrailer was near me! It very rusty under there and different configuration for where the rear area leaf springs sits on iron shelf wielded to trailer.

    Nice video! A couple of things I would do differently though. I would solder the wires together and use heat shrink tubing and grind off the rust to connect the ground to bare metal. I was surprised you didn’t replace the bushings while you had it all apart.

    Shouldn't torque down the spring eye bolts until the trailer is down and the springs are under load.
