Axle Dimensions

Hub Face and Spring Center Measurements on Standard Trailer Axle

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 seat on one side of the axle to the center of the seat on the other. This axle beam comes with the spring seats welded on.


Hub Face and Spring Center Measurements on Standard Trailer Axle

Another helpful measurement to have is the flange-to-flange (C) length, which is measured from the outside of one brake flange to the outside of the one opposite. This length may be easy to obtain if you are replacing an axle, but it's important to note that this measurement is not the preferred method for determining which axle will best fit your trailer.


If you are replacing your trailer's axle, you should be able to figure out which type you need by determining your trailer's capacity, the bolt pattern of your wheels, the brake type and the aforementioned lengths.


Dexter Axles

Dexter axles are made of high-strength steel and come with spindles and spring seats welded on. The spring seats are attached to the underside of the axle so that the leaf springs (sold separately) can mount beneath the axle. The result of this underslung design is a trailer that rides a bit lower for quick and easy loading and unloading.


Each axle is manufactured to create a certain camber angle. This ensures that the angle of the wheels is correct for your towing needs. Because the primary concern when towing is maintaining controlled, in-line movement, each axle is made so that your trailer's tires will run along the pavement evenly, with contact across the width of the tread. The result is excellent straight-line acceleration for steady, in-line tracking. You might notice the bend near the center of the axle; this is what ensures the proper camber angle. Having the center ride a bit higher and the sides of the axle bent lower allows the axle to give just enough to compensate for the load.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

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.

Bolt Pattern - Even

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.)

Bolt Pattern - Odd

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.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

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.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for Dexter Trailer Axles 35545E-ST-EZ-89 Review

Today we're going to review Part #35545E-ST-EZ-89. This is the Dexter Trailer Axle with the straight EZ-Lube spindles, the electric brakes and the 5 on 4 and a 1/2 inch hub and drums. The axle itself is 89 inches long and has a 3500 pound weight capacity. This axle beam will act as part of your trailers suspension system. You can use this to replace an axle on your trailer or to fabricate a suspension to fit your application. It comes with the spindle nut, the D-ring washer and the nut retainer. It's made of a high strength steel construction. It does have the straight EZ-Lube spindles, there's no drop to it.

On an EZ-Lube spindle, it does have the built-in grease Zerk fitting on the very end. That's where you would lubricate your bearings so you don't have to remove the whole hub and drum. You can just lube it from right there. This part number does include everything shown here. It includes the electric brake assemblies, both the left side and the right side. It includes the hub and drums and the mounting hardware which are these washers and these nuts.

That is used to hold the brake assemblies to these mounting flanges. It also will include the bearings, the outer bearings, the inner bearings, the races will be included and they are actually pre-installed in the hub and drums. You can see right there, they're already installed. It will come with the grease seals. It comes with the EZ-Lube grease caps. The EZ-Lube grease caps, again, the reason they're EZ-Lube, it's nice, they have a rubber plug that you can pop out to access that Zerk fitting on an EZ-Lube spindle.

It will come with the ten 1/2 inch lug nuts. Also we include a 2 by 14 ounce tube of marine grade bearing grease that you would need to install with just a grease gun that would hold 14 ounce tubes. If you have one at home, you can use that, if you don't, we also sell that separately. We offer this one, it's a related part on the product page. It's Part #L30200, a grease gun. Basically on the axle itself, all axles will have a bend in the middle. They actually will bend upwards.

This will create a zero camber angle for even road to tread contact across the width of your trailers tires. Having the center riding a bit higher and the sides are lower allows this axle, when a load is put on it, it will compensate enough to give this straight across and have your tires road to tread contact all the way across the tire. This will give you excellent straight line acceleration and steady inline tracking. This axle, the spring seats which are right here, they're well lit underneath the underside of the axle. This is an underslung design and that means that they're well lit to the underside. This will give you a low ride height which makes it easier to load and unload your trailer. The spring seats and the spindles are all welded onto the axle. It also has the four bolt brake mounting flanges you can see that your electric brakes would bolt to. It also has a wiring loop there and one on that end. Basically, that's to hook up your electric brakes too. Comes with that in the axle itself. On the axle 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 your most accurate measurements. The hub face would be, once these assemblies are all installed on there, you would measure the hub face length. You would measure from, right here, which is the base of the wheel stud, once this is installed. From the base of the wheel stud on this side to the base of the wheel stud on the other side. After these hub assemblies are all installed, if you measured that on this axle it would give you a hub face to hub face length, since they're not on there, I'm just going to give you an idea, it's going to be right at 89 inches. That's why this is considered an 89 inch axle. The spring center to spring center would be right here where the spring mounts are. If you measured from the center of this one to the center of the one on the other end. We'll try to do that to give you an idea, center to center. It's going to be 74 inches spring center to spring center length. Basically, when you're going to replace your trailers axle, you should be able to figure out which axle you need by determining the trailers capacity, match it up to the correct axle capacity. The bolt pattern of your wheels, the brake type and then these lengths I mentioned, the hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center. Just to mention again, the weight capacity on this is 3500 pounds. The hub face to hub face length I measured was 89 inches. Spring center to spring center length was 74 inches. The hub bolt pattern on these hub and drums is 5 on 4 and a 1/2 inches. The diameter of the tubing here, the outer diameter is 2 and 3/8 inches. The spindle size diameter is 1 and 1/16 inches. The wheel stud diameter on the studs here is a 1/2 inch, that's why we include the 1/2 inch lug nuts. And this we'll use anywhere as a wheel size from 13 inches wheels all the way up to 17 and a 1/2 inch wheels. That should do it for the review on Part #35545E-ST-EZ-89, the Dexter Trailer Axle with the straight EZ-Lube spindles and the electric brakes. .

I purchased these axles and brakes to replace the old axles on my car hauler. Everything went smoothly with this order. I received my axle and hubs much faster than I anticipated. The parts were well packaged and everything is exactly as I ordered it. I had never installed hubs on trailer axles but after watching one of etrailer's instructional videos I had both sides of the idler axle done in less than 30 minutes. I had similar results on the axle that I put electric brakes on as well. Dexter axles with the EZ-Lube spindles are well worth the money. Bottom line I couldn't be happier with the products and service. 167127

This axle was needed for a very special purpose and it now incorporated into a trailer for that use. I could have used an axle with half the rating but one was not available. The length was the primary reason for selecting this axle. This one will be fine and I'm happy with the unit. 240756

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Trailer Axles
Do you have a question about this Trailer Axle?


  • How to Measure for the Correct Replacement Trailer Axles
  • Are they really bent, or do they have an arch in them? Most trailer axles are specifically designed to they're arched. When weight is applied to the axles, they'll flatten which will give the tire tread full contact with the pavement. If the axles weren't arched, the tires would contact the pavement with the inside edges once weight was applied to the axle. This would cause uneven tire wear. If you determine that the axle is indeed bent, you'll need the following information to get the...

  • Thank you for providing the reference numbers from your Jayco trailer's Dexter axle. I was not able to cross reference either of these numbers, 123617439 and 1657213, but we can still help you. It appears that one of the other bits of info you found on the axle, HF=85.75 inch, is a measurement of the distance between the two hub faces when hubs are installed. The first thing you need to confirm is the axle's weight rating, which should be stamped onto the axle beam if it does not appear...

  • Replacement 3500 Pound Trailer Axle for a Travel Trailer
  • All of the 3500 pound axles that we carry that also have electric brakes are too long for the measurements you have provided. But we do carry just the most popular sizes. One option is to instead use a Timbren axle-less system, # A35RD545E. Or you could visit a local tractor or trailer supply store and order a custom axle to your specifications.

  • Increasing the Load Weight Capacity for My 5x10 Trailer
  • First thing I would recommend would be to see if you can identify the weight capacity of the axle by locating a tag near center of the axle. If you have a 2,000lbs. axle it would be possible to upgrade to a higher capacity system. It is important to note that this will not increase the weight capacity of your trailer's frame, which is something you will be limited by. Even after upgrading all the parts, you could attempt to reinforce the frame by welding on more steel but unless you...

  • Adding Modern Hub/Drum/Brake Assemblies to 1965 Vintage Trailer
  • Because it can indeed be a challenge to find replacement parts for trailers like yours that are of a substantial age, your easiest route will likely be to replace the axle along with your hubs/drums/brakes. This way all components will be fresh and known to be in good condition. They will also have the same working life. Replacing the axle/spindles will also simplify the process of finding the other items and of maintaining the updated trailer in the coming years. You will need to determine...

  • 3,500 lb Axle Suspension and Leaf Spring Install Hardware Recommendation
  • For a 3,500 lb capacity trailer axle with idler hubs that have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you would want the part # 35545I-EZ-89. If you need brake hubs you would want the # 35545E-ST-EZ-89. These axles have a distance of 89 inches from hub face to hub face and a distance of 74 inches from spring center to spring center. For a 3,500 lb rated leaf spring you would want the # SP-212275, then for a hanger kit you would want # APS1 and then for U-bolt kit to hold the axles to the springs...

  • Can a 2,500 Pound Drop Axle Be Upgraded to 3,500 Pound Straight Axle
  • You can certainly replace your existing 2,500 pound axles with 3,500 pound axles. If your trailer is not already wired for electric brakes and you want to add them, you will need to wire the trailer for electric brakes. I have attached a help article on adding electric brakes to a trailer for you. You can change your axle to a straight axle from a drop axle. As you mentioned it will move the center of gravity up. This is important to keep in mind while driving and when making turns....

  • Axle Capacity and Replacement Brake Assemblies for 1955 Airstream Trailer
  • Given the venerable age of your 1955 Airstream (and those folks DO still make 'em like they used to) it is unlikely that you will find replacement hubs with the same bearing set. It will likely be easier and safer to replace the axles with new ones that will use more common modern bearings. Axle weight capacity is usually found on a sticker on the axle or frame. I realize that after almost 60 years that sticker may be long gone, but if you contact Airstream with your trailer's VIN number...

  • Recommended Replacement 3,500 Lb Trailer Axle
  • For you to upgrade your system you will need a new axle along with the hub. It looks like you were looking at the Dexstar Vintage Steel Wheel, part # AM20395. This is a 4 lug wheel that would be used on a 3,500 lb axle. I will make some recommendations for 3,500 lb systems for you. I would recommend a system that includes the hubs or for a system with brakes a system that includes the hub, drums, and brakes. One system I recommend is the Dexter Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs, part...

  • Replacement Trailer Suspension For 1971 Aristocrat Starliner Travel Trailer
  • We can help you with finding what you need to replace the trailer suspension on your 71 Aristocrat. Many times there is a plate or sticker on the axle somewhere or on the trailer that has the weight capacity and size of axle you need. That would be the easy part. If you do not have the plate or sticker or manual for the trailer you may need to take some measurements of the suspension you currently have installed. You will need to know the weight of the trailer to make sure you have...

  • Replacing Axles to Add Electric Brakes on 2008 Weekend Warrior CR3905
  • Since you're looking at replacing the axles on the trailer, the easiest solution will be to order axles that already have electric brakes on them, or are at least already set up for electric brakes. There are a couple of things you will want to consider when ordering new axles. Hub face to hub face measurement Spring center to spring center measurement Axle capacity Wheel bolt pattern. I've attached a diagram showing you where to measure for the hub face and spring center measurements....

  • 3,500 lb Axle, Leaf Spring, Wheel and Tire, Hanger Kit and U-Bolt Kit Recommendation for a Trailer
  • The Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes # 35545E-ST-EZ-89 that you referenced is a 3,500 lb axle so you will need to use springs with the same capacity. For that I would recommend the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-220275 that you also referenced. For a single axle hanger kit you would want the Single-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit # APS1. For a wheel and tire combo that you could run all around your trailer you could get the Karrier ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire with 15" Galvanized Wheel...

  • Recommended Replacement 3,500 Lb Axles With Electric Brakes For 2003 Sno Pro Trailer
  • We do offer 3,500 lb axles that may work for your Sno Pro trailer. The axles we offer are not torsion axles but may serve your purpose well. I recommend the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes, part # 35545E-ST-EZ-89. These 3,500 lb axles have the electric brake and hubs installed and also feature the EZ-Lube spindle which makes lubrication easy. The axles have a hub-face-to-hub-face measurement of 89 inches and spring-center-to-spring-center length of 74 inches. I have attached a...

  • Availability of Complete 72-Inch Axle Kit with Electric Brakes and 4-on-4 Hubs
  • We do offer some complete axle/hub/brake kits such as # 35545E-ST-EZ-89 from Dexter, but we do not have a complete kit with the exact combination of features you require. We do offer 72-inch axles with 58-inch spring seats and idler hubs in your 4-on-4 bolt pattern. Part # 20440I-EZ-72 is rated at 2200-lbs and features EZ-Lube spindles.

  • Can Larger Axle Increase Trailer Weight Carrying Capacity
  • You will want to contact the trailer manufacturer before installing a heavier axle on your trailer. they should be able to explain what the weight capacity is for your trailer. Simply replacing the axle will not necessarily increase the weight capacity of the trailer. The frame and floor construction need to be considered with weight carrying capacity.

  • Replacement Trailer Axles that have 3,500 lb Capacity Recommendation
  • We have a couple options for a 3,500 lb axle that could work on your 1985 Terry Resort Travel Trailer, but they all have the same dimensions that hopefully would match up with what you have. You will need to measure your axles first though. The axles we offer are 89 inches from hub face to hub face and 74 inches from spring center to spring center. If your axles match these dimensions the part # T3584F-EZ-8974 would be a great choice for a hubless axle. If you wanted an axle that...

  • Will 3500 Pound Dexter Axle with Hub/Drums and Electric Brakes Fit Harbor Freight Trailer 69897
  • The hub and drum assemblies included with Dexter axle, # 35545E-ST-EZ-89, are too large to fit the 12 inch wheels on Harbor Freight trailer 69897. If the length measurements are correct (89 inches from hub face to hub face and 74 inches between spring hangers on center), then you would need to also replace the wheels and tires with larger 14 inch wheels, # AM32153 or # AM32151.

  • Recommended Replacement 3,500 Lb Axle With Brakes For Trailer
  • I recommend an axle like part # 35545E-ST-EZ-89. This axle has a distance of 89 inches hub-face-to-hub-face and a spring center-to-center measurement of 74 inches. The brake flange-to-flange distance is 82-5/8 inches. The axle has 10 inch x 2-1/4 inch brake drum dimensions and a 5 on 4-1/2 inch wheel bolt pattern. This will accommodate 13 to 15 inch diameter wheels. Based on the measurements you provided, this will work well for you. This axle comes with brakes, hubs, drums, bearings,...
