Reply To: Trailex trailer build

Yes, I had them up high till last night when I torqued them down.  They’re as low as they go now.   I put them on before I put the tires on and had no idea how they’d line up so I didn’t tighten them till after seeing that big gap and moving them to the lowest position.

I’m not super happy about the funky angle they’re on (top edge is pressed against the trailer frame).   The L brackets don’t appear to be 90 degrees.  I wonder why they did this.  I may put a bit of rubber behind the top edge or attempt to bend the bracket.  There’s probably a reason so I’ll research this a bit before doing anything.

Also, the Harbor Freight digital torque wrench kicks butt.  $30 !
