i took dandy for a short 5mile drive just to let everything settle after replacing the studs and wheels.The Dandy felt like it was towing better a bit smoother i dunno if this is a placebo or if it actually is better?
The axles are now a little higher on the 12inch wheels maybe 10-12mm so this will reduce the nose up effect by probably double that at the hitch point.I should have parked on a level road/car park and measured the height at front and rear of trailer when attached to car to workout the height difference,then i can determine what size spacers i need.If i only need say 20mm then i will just get solid Steel spacers to go between suspension units and mounting plates.
