Perfect fit. My trailer was borrowed and came back with a replaced hub - while servicing the hubs I noticed that the replaced hub did not have one of these installed. Scary. Ordered one from Etrailer and had it a few days later, shipping was cheaper than running all over town trying to run this part down. 115902


Thanks for taking the time to follow up with me. Ive only put a few hundred miles of use on the trailer but everything is working great. Ive actually recommended etrailer to my father, a friend of mine and anyone at work who would listen made easier by the fact that I had everything I ordered shipped to my job instead of home. Barring an emergency situation that requires an immediate solution you have my business in the future.

Please see the attached picture of the broken parts I found when inspecting the wheel bearing on my boat trailer. I was unaware of the tang wheel bearing washer assembly until I visited your website and watched the installation video. I had never seen any other method than the cotter pin assembly to retain the bearing on the axle. I was glad to see the the actual way the washer was manufactured. It didn't seem right that the small tab alone cold retain the bearing. Thank you for the video and the prompt delivery of the needed parts. 10524

Absolutely phenomenal customer service! Made my order, but realized I needed 2 seals.. sent them an email to change my order, and recieved a phone call and they fixed it for me. FAST SHIPPING! and GREAT packing. I ordered 2 bearing/seal sets, 2 seals, 2 spindle washers, and 2 axle nuts and package came with a box with paper padding, then 3 separate padded envelopes with my orders... Couldn't find a place with better prices... I will be an customer for life. 156988

Service is great! I just ordered wheel bearings, races and the above item. It wasn't until I received the items that I noticed M.I.C. My fault, just did not see it when placing the order. I wish it were made more clear and MADE IN USA items were offered! The help on the phone was also great, thanks for all the help and good attitude. GO WITH USA. 127485

I received the package exactly on schedule and was exactly what I wanted. I wasn't sure about shipping "sure post" (ships UPS to the nearest postoffice, then postal service delivers) but it worked out ok. It adds a couple of days compared to shipping entirely with UPS but if you are not in a hurry it's less expensive. . 64960

Not a highly sophisticated product I needed - spindle washers - but in this hick town of Duluth, MN they were impossible to locate. Etrailer's service was exceptional and the next time I need a more substantial item, this is the place I will go. Thank you. 18895

Even though it was a very small order put just as much time and effort into it as if it were hundreds of dollars. Without these washers the trailer is useless. Very pleased with service and product. 136458

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?

  • Is a Spindle Washer Needed Between the Spindle Nut and Outer Bearing on Dexter 5 on 4-1/2 Hubs
  • Yes, there should be a washer of some type between the spindle nut and the bearing on your trailer. The washer protects the back side of the bearing from the edges and points on the back side of the spindle nut. There are several types of spindle washers available depending on the spindle configuration on your trailer. The Washer For 1 inch Spindle, # SW1000, is typically used on spindles that have a castle nut, like # 165686, and a cotter pin, # 165649. A D washer, # 5-23, would...

  • Which Lock Washer Do I Need For My Dexter 5,200 lb. Trailer Axle
  • For a lock washer for your Dexter 5200 lb axle, you will need Washer, part # 5-23. If you need a tang style washer, you will need part # 5-101 The tang style washer is used on E-Z Lube spindles and functions the same as a cotter pin, but designed for the E-Z Lube Spindles. If you need a replacement spindle nut, you will need Trailer Spindle Nut, part # 165686. The lug nut you will need Trailer Wheel Lug Nut, part # X1023R, which is sold in a quantity of 1.

  • Spindle Nut Washer and Grease Seal for a Dexter 3500 Pound E-Z Lube Trailer Axle
  • The Replacement Spindle Washer, # 5-101, was designed specifically for E-Z Lube axles, so that should be the correct washer for you. You can make sure that your spindle has a 1 inch diameter at the end where the washer will be. It sounds like you have a #84 spindle which is for 3500 pound E-Z lube axles. The correct seal would be # RG06-050, for a pair of double lip seals. To be sure, you would need to find the bearing numbers of the inner and outer bearings. The numbers are stamped...

  • Replacement D Tang Spindle Washer for E-Z Lube Spindle on 3500-lb Axle
  • The TruRyde Replacement D Tang Spindle Washer # 5-101 that you referenced has a 1-inch inner diameter to fit on 1-inch diameter spindles. All such items that we offer share this same 1-inch inner diameter, such as parts # 5-23 and # 5-57. The points on your spindles where the bearings ride can have a larger diameter than the exterior point where you will apply the D-washer. Please refer to the linked photo.

  • Method for removing and Installing Tang-Style Spindles Washers
  • A replacement tang-style spindle washer like part # 5-101 is intended to be installed behind the castle nut and have its prongs bent down so that they prevent the castle nut from rotating on an E-Z Lube type spindle. The castle nut holds the washer in place, of course, and the washer's prongs fold down into the gaps in the nut to prevent it from loosening on the spindle. The removal and re-installation processes are shown for you in the linked video.

  • Replacement Spindle Washer For 3,500 Lb EZ Lube Spindle
  • For a 3,500 lb EZ Lube axle, the replacement spindle washer you will need is part # 5-101. This washer has an inside diameter of 1 inch, so you may want to measure the spindle diameter to be certain. We do offer other replacement spindle washers, like part # 5-71 for 1-1/2 inch spindles, and part # 5-59, which is for spindles that measure 1-2/4 inches.

  • Bearing/Race/Seal Kit for Boat Trailer w/ NOK AD7131E Seal 25580 Inner and LM67048 Outer Bearing
  • Although we don't have a kit that includes the bearings/seal all in one package, you can certainly obtain the parts separately. You'll need: # 25580 inner bearing and its # 25520 race # LM67048 outer bearing and its # LM67010 race # 21325 Double Lip Grease Seal (cross references to the NOK seal you referenced) # 5-101 spindle washer # 165649 cotter pin I'll link you to our FAQ article about replacing bearings, races and seals.

  • How to Choose Replacement Spindle Washers
  • You can identify the correct D-washer for your spindles by confirming the axle capacity on the axle's identification sticker or plate. If you have a 3500-lb to 5200-lb axle (or a regular duty 6000-lb axle) you can use # 5-23. If your axle is rated for 6000-lbs (heavy duty), 7000-lbs or 8000-lbs or is a pre-1989 9000-lb axle) you can use part # 5-57. If you have E-Z Lube spindles you can use tang washer # 5-101. All of these have a 1-inch inner diameter.

  • Availability of Trailer Spindle Washers with Tabs

  • Replacement Spindle Washer for a Trailer that Uses L44649 Inner and Outer Bearings
  • We currently offer several different spindle washers and I have included a link to them for you. However, none of then have an inner diameter of 1-1/16 inches. I recommend using a set of digital calipers to take the measurement because it needs to be as accurate as possible and traditional measuring devices are not quite accurate enough. You mentioned that the trailer takes L44649 bearings. If both the bearings are the same size then the washer associated with the size spindle that takes...

  • Should There Be a Washer on Trailer Spindle Between Spindle Nut and Outer Bearing
  • There really should be a flat washer between the outer bearing of your hub and the nut that holds it on. The washer protects the back side of the bearing from the edges and points on the back side of the spindle nut. The Washer For 1 inch Spindle, # SW1000, is typically used on spindles that have a castle nut, like # 165686, and a cotter pin, # 165649. A D washer, # 5-23, would be used on a spindle that has a flat side and uses the same castle nut and cotter pin setup. A Tongue...

  • Inner Wheel Bearing Recommendation for a Number 84 Spindle
  • The inner and outer bearing surfaces on a number 84 spindle are different diameters. The outer bearing will ride on a 1.00 inch diameter surface and the inner bearing will ride on a 1.378 inch surface. It sounds like you have the correct outer bearing and now are in need of the correct inner bearing. For that you would want the part # L68149 that you referenced. You will want to use a spindle washer. The washer protects the back side of the bearing from the edges and points on the...

  • Availability of 1 Inch Keyed Spindle Washer
  • We have a few washers that would work for you. If you want the tang style that can be bent over the notch in the castle nut, go with # 5-101. If you're looking for the D washer used on EZ lube spindles, use part # 5-23. For a spindle with the grooved keyway in it, use part # 165863.

  • Replacement Bearing Kit for a 1995 Timeout Dart Motorcycle Trailer
  • What you can do is get the parts separately because the parts in the bearing kits cannot be swapped out for other parts. You would need a total of 4 bearings # L44649, 4 races, # L44610, a pair of the correct seals, # RG06-010, 2 cotter pins # 165649, and 2 spindle washers # 5-101.

  • Wheel Bearings for Old Moore Sled Trailer
  • I don't have any information available that would tell me which bearings your trailer used, but I can certainly help you figure it our for yourself. Closely examine the old bearings, looking for a part number engraved on the bearing cage. Get the numbers off both the inner and outer bearing. If you can't read the reference number, you can use an accurate measuring device like a digital caliper to measure the diameter of the spindle where the inner and outer bearings ride, as well as...

  • Looking for Replacement Bearings for Axle Using # L68149 Inner Bearing
  • The # L68149 bearing you mentioned is most commonly used with the # L44649 outer bearing, but it is sometimes used with the # LM67048 outer bearing, as well. If you can't read the reference number of your outer inner bearing, you can always use a digital caliper to measure the diameter of the spindle where that bearing rides. If that diameter is abut 1.06, you'll need the L44649 bearing. If the diameter you get is about 1.25 inches, you'll need the # LM67048. The # BK2-100 bearing...

  • Replacement Hubs, Castle Nuts, and Tang Washers for a 2010 Venture Boat Trailer
  • I believe the correct hub for your Venture boat trailer is # 34822BX. It uses L44643 inner and outer bearings that have a 1 inch diameter. Based on your picture you have the same 4 on 4 bolt pattern as this hub. It is compatible with 10 to 13 inch tires. This hub is associated with a BT8 spindle which uses a 1 inch castle nut # 165686. And it sounds like you have tang washers such as # 5-101 which is used instead of a cotter pin.
    view full answer...

  • Replacement Spindle Washer Recommendation for a Trailer Spindle
  • Sounds like you have a 1 inch diameter spindle and would need the part # SW1000 as this washer has an inner diameter of 1 inch. There is no specific torque rating for the castle nut that holds your hub in place. We recommend tightening the castle nut down until it stops, and then backing it off slightly. Having it too tight would prevent the hub from spinning.
