Expert Reply:

I do have a solution for you but we do not have an axle that meets the measurements you have provided. What I recommend to replace the axle AND the suspension all at once is a Timbren Axle-Less system such as # A35RS545 or # A35RS545E. With this set up you would not need to replace suspension parts and the Timbren springs that will replace them do not require maintenance like leaf springs set up would. I have linked a video example of a Timbren system.

There are a lot of things that go into the capacity of a trailer. Even if you were to go to a higher capacity axle or system the rest of the trailer would also have to be upgraded to handle the additional weight.
