Leveling single axle (side to side)

I've hardly ever had to level side to side but I think I'm going to have to- I do have a BAL leveler and if I find the crank for it I'll take that, but when I moved pretty sure it ended up in a different location than the leveler itself did. So assuming I can't find it- what do you recommend for leveling?

I thought the BAL leveler operated with a stud shaped like a nut. If I am correct, a socket wrench should work.

These are good. Andersen also makes one, but we don't like those bums anymore.

Leveling blocks are also good.

Find them at many retailers.

I don't get the two part thing. How do you get the black one under if the trailer is on the yellow one? How do you adjust?

I believe your stabilizer tool will fit the B@L and it may be a 6 sided 7/8" socket...

You put the yellow part in front of the wheel, narrow end toward the tire. Then pull forward gently so the tire rides up, lifting the narrow end as it goes. When the trailer is level place the black part under the yellow one to hold it up. Some people prefer to back onto the yellow part.

My BAL leveler came with a cheap Chinese ratcheting box wrench.
It broke the second time out . I now use a ratchet and a deep well 6 point socket .

Anderson Leveler

I have had one for three years now, just sold my 17 and boiught another for my new 5.0 TA. I found these to be easy to use and very light. I can use it with one hand.
