Question How to adjust torsion axles?

I have a Tundra 5th wheel BH that has the rubber torsion axles. My 06 F-150 SC 5.4 Lariat sits higher than the level trailer. I understand the axle can be set at three settings, -25, 0 or +25, but no one knows how to do it. Has anyone heard of doing this other than changing out the axle with a Dexter? Thanks again for a GREAT site!!

The only adjustable torsion axle I know of is the Flexride. It is splined, and can be adjusted by removing the hub and rotating it right/left to increase/decrease the current ride height.
