Default help with dragster hitting while loading

got new trailer that sits about 1 foot higher than old one due to heavy duty axles. dragster has to be jacked up in order to get over dove tail. didnt know if anybody had any ideals.

http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Race-R...amps,9855.html or something like this home made or bought. You can also raise up the trailer tongue to 'straighten out the kink'
