In my search for lift on my lil trailer, I've come across what appears to be the easiest most functional way to gain ground clearance.
Timbren makes axle-less suspension systems, seem to use rubber bushings to absorb all the vibrations and whatnot.
Now, concerns about the longevity of the rubber come to mind, but lets not focus on that at this moment.
Im not planning to do any crazy wheeling with the trailer in tow, but doesnt it seem like the arm/suspension unit itself could easily bend away from the frame, or warp the frame. or even rip loose from the frame? Or am i just being paranoid?
I suppose one could reinforce the frame by running a length of stock or plate or something across the top, between the suspension units to stiffen it, but that would amost defeat the purpose of not having an axle...though it would be wayyyy above the height the axle would be at.
What say you all? Anybody have experience with this stuff? Seems like it would be SUPER easy to install. Either spend 200 bucks on an axle kit with springs and do a bunch of fab work, or spend 400 on this and never have to worry about dragging the axle.
