Buy one of these Andersen Rapid Hitches and lower the tongue as much as possible without being too low in the direct area of the the hitch:
I had the same issue and the hitch works like a charm.
Oh, and BTW watch eBay for a great price.

trailer drags on driveway
If you have room, try turning just before the back of your trailer hits the low point. If you can get one of the trailer wheels low point before the other, depending on the slope angle and overhang, this may give you the clearance you need. Of course that is assuming the tow vehicle wheels (4) are on a constant plane with the trailer.

I think that angling your trailer when you're reversing so that both tires aren't at the same angle is your best solution. Back up and a few feet before your tires touch the street, (or driveway if you're coming home), turn your steering wheel and get one tire on the driveway first, then the other and straighten it out. It might take a bit of planning and practice. Get out of your car/truck ever once in awhile and see how you're doing. Once you get this down, you'll know exactly when to turn and how much.
5001 also mentioned to get a different receiver for your hitch/trailer. That's a good idea too. Get one that is lower by an inch or two, or an adjustable one as mentioned (make sure you clamp it down properly).

Can you flip your axle? Put on the bottom of the springs? Might give to 2 inch or so?
