      And After... easier than I thought it would be... even have a little left over last season hanging from axle - got at least 2 inches of lift - just by changing the springs. The parts list and where I got them -

      From Great Norther Tool - 27" Spring - part 125208

      from caltrailerworks.com - shackle bolt - 6 x SKU: P25559 , 6 lock bolts SKU: P25561 , 4 u bolts 7 inch - could have went shorter - SKU: P25670. got new lock washers at hardware store reused plate and original nuts. If you plate needs replacing 2 x SKU: P25686

      Peter aka Thatsmrmastercraft found the springs for me after etrailer sent me wrong springs.

                Can you take a photo so we can see the gap between the tire and fender?

                    before new springs.. if I put my hand in between fender and tire - tire and fender would touch hand... now there's a nice gap..
