How To Lift a 1999 Aluma Utility Trailer


Hi I would like to raise my Aluma model 720 with VIN 1YGUS1012YB000030. It has the torsion axles on it and it appears to be original. Wondering if you have lift kits for it. Thanxs in advance for your help. PS Here’s a little more info if needed: GVWR 2200 Load. 1850 Made. 7/99

I do have options for you to lift a 1999 Aluma Utility Trailer but the only bolt-on lift kits for this trailer that could potentially work are Torflex Lift Kits. That said, you would need to make sure you have a Dexter Torflex Axle which can be identified by looking at the sticker on the center of the axle tube. If you have a Dexter Torflex Axle then most likely it is a Torflex #9 therefore the Torflex Lift Kit part # K71-723-01 would be correct.

If you don't have a Dexter Torflex Axle then your only option would be something like the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension part # ASR2KHDS04 which replaces your axle so you get brand new rubber for a better ride and it has a built-in 4" lift. This could then be used with the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K (2).
