Trailer torsion axle

Hey guys, I just picked up a 6.5x 12' utility trailer(open landscape)

I want to replace the spring axle with a torsion axle. But I am not sure which degree axle I need. Sitting unloaded it is 4.5-4.75" from the bottom of my frame to the center of the spindle.
And 5.25 with the trailer jacked up

Any suggestions? Dexter has a listings for 10* up, 0* and 10* down for my 3500lb axle

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

Re: Trailer torsion axle

been awhile since i looked at torsion but the 0 should put spindle level with center of the axle tube(probally3"square)
and the 10 down would put it lower than tube as mounted on trailer seems like its 4" ish lower than tube
so 10 down should put you close
look here
