    Hi,
    New guy here. We have a NTU 2000 Coleman Niagara. I am looking to raise the PUP ride height up a bit. It bottoms out barely going in and out of the driveway...
    I am aware of the "axle flip" but I am only looking to raise it up an inch or two. We currently us a 2x6 to keep from bottoming out in the driveway. There is another set of holes in the front of the spring mounts that could give us a little bit of lift. Anyone use these or even know about them?
    Any other suggestions will be appreciated!

    Why not the flip?

    Do the flip, you won't regret it. Best mod I've done!

    I am thinking about it, too. Never got around to it yet. Might raise like 5 to 8 inches

    You will need more than just a "flip" to get 8in lift. You could use blocks between the axle and springs in combination with the flip. Or you could have some custom leaf springs made-up. It would give you the lift you want without lift blocks and huge ubolts lol.

    For now we like the 100% unobstructed view in the rear view mirror. Plus we only need an inch or so to clear driveway and I could probably move the mounts myself.

    This is the front spring mount. The rear seems welded

    To gain a little more you can replace the spring shackles with longer ones

    Yeah, looks like that would give you an inch.
