Trailer axle measures 57-1/2" from hub face to hub face and 46-1/2" from spring center to spring center. Includes idler hubs with bearings, races, and seals. Corrosion-resistant galvanized steel is great for a boat or snowmobile trailer.

Corrosion Resistance for Marine Use
Galvanized steel parts are great for marine use because they are hot-dipped in zinc after being stamped. This creates a coating that is typically 3 mil to 5 mil thick. This thick, all-around coating allows galvanized steel products to provide years of use without rusting or corroding, making them a good choice for boat and snowmobile trailers.
All GAL-DEX hubs undergo a test in which they are sprayed with a 5-percent salt solution to determine corrosion resistance over time. These products are able to withstand 500 hours of constant exposure to the saltwater mist. This 500-hour salt spray rating indicates that a product is not only durable enough to last in freshwater environments, but it can also be used on trailers that come into contact with saltwater
There are multiple ways to measure the length of an axle beam, but the hub-face-to-hub-face and spring-center-to-spring-center lengths are the most accurate. Hub face (A) refers to the length of the axle measured from the base of one wheel stud to the base of the wheel stud on the opposite side of the axle (when hubs are mounted on the beam).
The spring center (B) is the approximate width of your trailer. It is measured from the center of the spring centering hole on one side of the axle to the spring centering hole on the other.
The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.
On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: "8 on 6-1/2" means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)
To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: "5 on 4-1/2" means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)
Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

Haven't installed the parts yet. Ordered what I thought was correct. Erika called me and pointed out I ordered the wrong U-bolts for the axle I selected. She even stayed on the phone while I went outside (with my cell phone on speaker) and measured all the dimensions of my broken axle. Received the parts today. Hoping to have it installed tomorrow. 295636
