I own an '04 K-Z Frontier 2809 Travel Trailer.  We like everything about it, except it rides too low.  It has "drop" axles.  Would like to swap them out for some regular axles.  They seem to have what I need at abctrailerparts.com.  Is it an easy job?  Can I keep my existing leaf springs and brakes? 

Thanks in advance...

It's usually pretty straight-forward to swap axles, usually just pulling the bolts. I's no tunusual for them to be seized or corroded, though, so sometimes it can be a tussle.

Whether you keep the same suspension will depend on the physical design of the axles, so I can't hazrd a guess. Since you are changing the style of axle, the layout may be different.
