Title:

What is my "realistic" weight capacity for this steer axle?

Text:

My build sheet says I have 14.6k aluminum hubs. 13.2k leaf springs. And what is described as "LT WT F/A; 12k 3.5" drop" axle.

What is the safe capacity for this set up?

By default I am asuming it is 12k.

I have a 55" trailer to side fairing gap with fifth wheel slid all the way to rear setting(center of tandems) . Should I be running this setup at 13k to get trailer closer?
