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.


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.


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 20440I-EZ-60 Review

Today we're going to review part number 20440i-EZ-60. This is the Dexter Trailer Axle with the straight easy loop spindles and the 4 on 4" idler hubs. The axle itself is a 60" long axle and has a 2200 pound weight capacity. This axle beam will act as part of your trailer suspension system. You can use this to replace an axle on your trailer. Or you can fabricate a suspension to fit your application. It does come with the spindle mutt, the D washer and the nut retainer, one on each end.

Also when we ship this, we don't ship it just like this. We actually will put some grease on this and wrap it to protect the machine finish and then using this very thick, strong corrugated tube, we slide over each end and then wrap it to protect each end of the spindles. Now this is an idler axle, which means there are no brake mounting flanges mounted to it. It's made of a high strength steel. It does come with these cast iron idler hubs which are very sturdy and durable, and all of these pieces shown here are included. It comes with the bearings and in this case, the bearings are the same size inner and outer. It comes with two inner and two outer bearings.

The bearing races, will come preinstalled. The outer and the inner race where the bearing would install is all included in the hubs. It comes with the two grease seals. It comes with the two E-Z Lube center caps. By the "E-Z lube center cap" it means the rubber plug is pulled out so you access the zerk fitting on an E-Z Lube axle. It comes with eight of the 1/2" lug nuts which are used hold your wheels and tires to these hubs. It also comes with the trailer wheel bearing marine grease.

It's a 14 ounce tube that is included. We give you a tube because you would use a grease gun to lube the E-Z Lube axle. This has a straight E-Z Lube spindle there is no drop to it but on a E-Z Lube axle they have a greased zerk fitting on each end, one on this end and one on the other one. What that allows you to do, it makes it very simple to grease your bearings instead of on a standard axle where you would have to take out your bearings, take off your hub, grease them separately, put them back together. On a E-Z Lube with everything installed, your hub all installed, you can just put a grease gun on the end here, pump the grease into the cavity and that would grease your bearings right there.

It's very simple to do. Now again we include a 14 ounce tube. You can use a grease gun that you would have at home that uses 14 ounce tubes. If you don't, we do sell separately on our website a related part which is this grease gun part number L30200. This grease gun could be used to grease your E-Z Lube axle. You might notice all axles will have a bend in the center, basically they'll be higher, the center will go up and the ends will be lower. Each axle is manufactured that way and that helps create a certain camber angle, having the center being a bit higher than the sides of the axle, sort of has a bend to it, this allows the axle to give you just enough, to compensate for the load of the trailer. Basically when you put your load on the trailer, it would push down all that weight and sort of level off that axle. When it does that, this will give you the correct angle of the wheels for your towing needs and allows your tires on your trailer to run along the pavement evenly with the contact patch across the width of the tire. The result of this is it's an excellent straight line acceleration for steady in-line tracking of your trailer. Now this has the spring seats on the bottom. As you can see when they're on the bottom it's called an under-slung design. These spring seats are welded to the underside of the axle. This is where you'll mount your leaf springs to and because they're on the underside of the axle this will give you a low ride height which makes it easier to load and unload your trailer. The spring seats are welded on and the spindles are all welded onto the axle. When you measure an axle, there's multiple ways you can measure the length of an axle beam, but the two most accurate ways are a hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center. Basically when you do hub face to hub face, what you would do is when the hubs are installed on each end of the axle, the hub face will be measured once it's installed from the base of one wheel stud to the base of the other wheel stud hub on the other side, on the opposite side of the axle when they're mounted. Basically on this one, I don't have the hubs on, but just to give you a rough idea the hub face to hub face on this one would be 60" that's why this axle is considered a 60" long axle. Now the spring center to spring center measurement, that would be measured from the center of the spring seat right here to the center of the spring seat on the other end. On this axle, center to center is going to be right at 48" for the spring center to spring center length. If you're replacing your trailer's axle, you should be able to figure out which type axle you need by using these measurements. Also you would use the trailer's weight capacity, the bolt pattern of the wheels you have on your trailer, and the brake type if you do have brakes on it. Again, just to go over a few specs. The weight capacity on this axle is 2200 pounds. The hub face to hub face length is 60". Spring seat to spring seat length is 48". Now the tubing outer diameter on this is 1 3/4". The spindle size diameter is 1 1/16". Now on these hubs you can see they have a 4 on 4" bolt pattern. It has a wheel stud diameter of 1/2". It comes with the 1/2" lug nuts that are used to hold your wheels on. Because of this hub, it has a hub flange diameter, in other words, from here to here, of 5 1/2". This would use a wheel size of 8 to 12" in wheel size diameter. That should do it for the review on part number 20440i-EZ-60, the Dexter trailer axle with the straight E-Z Lube spindles and the 4 on 4" idler hubs. .

The product itself is great, much better in quality and weight rating to what I replaced. What could have been better is if I understood the design of the axle and the distance between the mounts. An engineering drawing with dimensions would have been helpful, especially to show the exact distance between the mount centers. This could have helped me buy all the right parts up front instead of having to order another round of parts to take to the fabricator to get welded. Again, nothing wrong with the part, I just didn't understand all the details, exact measurements, and what the difference between overslung and underslung axles was before getting started on the project. I bought this axle to replace an axle on a 4x8 harbor freight trailer. However, the harbor freight trailer is metric and this axle is presumably standard, so the spacing between the mounts is off by just a little bit in relation to the trailer's springs, about an inch. Luckily, compatible brackets can be purchased from etrailer and welded on by your friendly local welder for a nominal fee. Also, it is worth noting that this axle was meant to be mounted above the leaf springs and has the original brackets on the bottom. The brackets I needed to add were added to the top, so I did not have to remove the old brackets. Long story short, this is a great axle (much better than standard harbor freight axle), but needed to be modified slightly to fit this SAE axle to a metric trailer. So just make sure that's in your budget before buying the axle for your project. 452545


Comments

Still loving the axle. Its definitely of better quality than what I had before. The only hiccup was as I mentioned in the review, I needed to modify it with additional brackets being welded on, so all in all, not too bad.

Product came in two separate shipment, both were prompt, one had a tear in the packaging but the piece that was meant to be there was with the package, so all appears to be intact, will know for sure when we put together on the trailer in another 2 weeks as we have been gone for that length of time. Assuming all is order, should have a good fit. The free shipping for Superbowl was a nice bonus 175353

I ordered this axle as a replacement for the one on my 1996 Haulin' 4x8 utility trailer. I'd neglected to maintain the bearings and when one went it destroyed my axle. This axle was an exact fit but the spring seats needed to be moved to the top of the axle. I ordered new seats and U-bolt mounting kit as well as the axle. I found a welder to remove the original spring seats and weld the new ones to match my application. Installation was a snap, I just followed the video included on the web site. Ordering my parts from etrailer really saved me $$ over the quotes I'd received from local shops. 512671

Do you have a question about this Trailer Axle?


  • Spare Parts for Harbor Freight HaulMaster Utility Trailer 90154
  • We often hear of weak customer support and limited spare parts availability with "bargain" trailer manufacturers. I found an online copy of the owner's manual for the Harbor Freight Haulmaster utility trailer model 90154 but it includes no information at all about the bearing or seal part numbers it uses. Often these foreign-made trailers use odd bearings that are not commonly available. If you can, pull a hub and find the part numbers on your bearings and seal. Please refer to the linked...

  • Can a Different Axle be Installed on a Harbor Freight Trailer Frame that is 48 Inches Wide
  • Yes, you could use axle # 20440I-EZ-60 for your trailer project! The width of your trailer is the same as the spring seat center to center measurement on the axle (48 inches). The hubs on this axle will accommodate up to 12 inch wheels with a 4 on 4 bolt pattern. I have included a link to a video review of the axle for you.

  • How to Grease an Axle with EZ Lube Spindles
  • There is no outer seal with the hubs of the Dexter Trailer Idler Axle w/ Idler Hubs # 20440I-EZ-60. Just an inner seal. Permatex is not required or recommended so I would not worry about that. Here's how to grease everything upon initial installation. First, grease your bearings and spindle by hand or with a bearing packer like part # L70025. If you are going to do it by hand, start with a gob of grease in your palm and then press the bearing into the grease with some force. Next,...

You could have brake mounting flanges welded to a 2K axle if you wanted but it is a precision job that requires the proper equipment and someone who has performed this job before. So for example you could use axle # T20BTR-6048 with hub and drum assembly # 8-257-5UC3. then you would need brake mounting flange # 4-34 and brake assemblies # 23-47 and # 23-48.

  • Replacement Axle for Harbor Freight Trailer
  • In order to choose the correct replacement axle, you will need to know the dimensions of your current axle's hub-face to hub-face and spring center to spring center as in the diagram I have added; the other thing you would want to know is the weight capacity of the axle you need. I've added a link to our selection of axles for you to check out, or if you get back to me with that information I'd be happy to try and find something that will work for you. The hubs will depend on the spindle...

  • Options for Putting New Hubs on a Utility Trailer that has an Old Chevy Axle
  • I wish I had something I could offer you, but the spindle dimensions you gave me are very different from the spindle dimensions we have hubs for. You could replace your spindles with something like the Trailer Spindle part # SP204BT8. This spindle is for 2,000 lb axles. If you need a higher capacity you might be interested in the Trailer Spindle part # R20384EZ, this is for 3,500 lb capacities and has a brake mounting flange. Spindles have to be professionally installed as they have to...

  • Can Leaf Springs be Mounted to the Top of Dexter Trailer Axle # 20440I-EZ-60
  • You should not flip an axle upside down because axles have a bow in them at the center which helps give them their capacity. But all you would have to do is weld on new spring seats to the top of the axle. For axle # 20440I-EZ-60 you would need 2 of spring seat # TRSS175.

  • Adapting Axle so Spring Seats are On Top Of Axle Tube
  • A 2,200 lb axle like the one you mentioned could easily be converted for a top mounted leaf spring. All you'd need to do is weld on a new spring seat # TRSS175 on top of the axle tube directly opposite of the existing ones. Simply flipping the axle over so the existing seats are on the top won't work, as the bow in the axle would have the camber of the wheels wrong if you did it that way.

  • Recommended Axle and Wheels for Harbor Freight Folding Trailer Carrying Kayaks
  • Harbor Freight trailers are normally not able to work well with other axles because they are not made to industry specs. We do have a kit that will allow you to replace your trailer axle and suspension that will also fit the tires you are seeking. It is the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System with Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 - 2,000 lbs # A20RS545. This will simply bolt to your trailer frame and use a 2 inch square tube not included to support the assemblies utilizing the integrated holes....
