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 Idler Trailer Axle with Hubs Installation

Today we're going to be installing our Dexter idler trailer axle with hubs. These are the EZ Lube version available in many different sizes. This particular part number is 20545I-EZ-60-10. Now before we show you how to install the axle I want to go over a few key features of it just so you know what's going to really set this axle apart from some of the others. The first thing, our axles going to have a slight bend to it. As you can see, out here on the end it's almost two fingers gap between the top of the axle and the bottom of the trailer; whereas when I get in here towards the middle it's only about one finger. It's not a huge bend but there is a slight bend to it.

What this is going to do is provide us with a zero camber where our tires are going to be straight up and down with the ground. That's going to spread our tire wear patch or the tire contact patch that hits the ground to a much wider area all the way across our tires. Here you can see where the spindle makes connection with the axle. It's going to be fully welded all the way around. Just like here on our axle and the spring mount that sit right on top of the spring, fully welded all the way around so it's going to give us really good strength. They also use high strength steel in their construction so you know is going to last you for a long time. Now if you go with the model that does come with the hubs included is going to have everything you need to connect those hubs to your axle.

You'll have your inner seal, your inner bearing, we'll have the outer bearing, the dust cap, and the small cover. It's even going to come with the five lug nuts so we can get our tire connected to the hub. Now that we've gone over the features and we've seen the benefits of the Dexter axle let's see how it installs on our trailer. The first step in our installation is going to be to remove our existing axle from our trailer. They're held in place using four u-bolts, two on each side. We remove the nuts that we've got on the bottom of each of them here.

Now we'll pull the lower plate off. Now we're going to set our lower plate, our two u-bolts, and our four nuts aside. Now our u-bolts, we'll be setting these aside. We're going to be replacing them with the new u-bolt kit, part number APUBR-10. Now let's head over to the other side of the trailer and we can do the exact same thing. Now let's take our axle, we're just going to lift it right up off its purchase there, slide it right out, and we'll just set this aside.

Now in our hub kit the axle is going to come with two of these. We're going to have our hub of course. We're going to have five brand new lug nuts, our inner and outer bearing. We'll have our grease seal for the inside of the hub, and we're also going to have the cap for the end and the insert is going to give us quick access in there to our grease zerk. Now to get these set up we're going to start on the inside here, take one of our bearings. In this instance the bearings are the same size so we don't have to worry about keeping them separate. We'll just take a wad of grease in our hand there and we're just going to pack it. This is called packing a bearing. We're just going to pack it into there. You see how it's starting to come out our rollers. We're going to do this a few times. Just get it packed in there really well. These are the type with EZ Lube so we'll be lubing them up later as well. Just want to get them nice and full of grease there. Then just going to go right into our hub here on the back side. We'll now take our grease seal and we're going to place that right in the back. Now we're using a block of wood to support our hub. I'm going to use another small black of wood here on the backside. We just need to tamp our seal down in there. Most of the time that's just going to run down right flush with the back of our hub as you can see there. Now with our rear bearing installed you can see it in there. We're going to have a small hollow in there. We want to put just a little bit of grease in there. Is going to give us a head start to filling them up later. We've got some there and then we'll just spread that around nice and evenly in there. Now it's time to pack our other bearing. You see it's nice and packed up there. Once you start seeing a lot of it coming out of the top you'll know when you've got it good and packed full. That's going to go right down in our hub just like that. Now I'm going to place the hub up onto our axle. Now typically we'd do this when it's installed on the trailer but with the lift we're using today we just wanted to do it down here to give us some extra room to work. Just slide this right on there. Now our seal here on the backside, as you can see when we put this on, it slides right up this machine surface. When we get it right in here it's actually going to spread out just a little bit wider. This is going to give us a really good seal and hold all of our grease in our hub. Now as we're sliding this on you'll notice there's going to be a hole right here. That's where the grease is going to come out of our insert. As we bring our hub up and on it's going to slide right up past that onto the shaft of the spindle here. Now this has been machined to accept several different hubs types, so it's only going to come to that point. Other hubs types maybe it will go a little bit further. It's now time for the washer to go on the end. There's a flat spot on the spindle that's going to line up with the flat spot that we have here on the washer. It will be the keeper that actually slides over it to keep our nut from backing out. We're just going to leave that open for now and we'll set these aside for use once we have the proper adjustment made when we've got the axle on our trailer. Now we'll just come over here to the other side of the axle and we can repeat this same process. We'll now just pass our axle up through. That will allow us to get our other side passed up through. Then we'll just allow them to seat right down on the bolts it sits through. Now we can bring our new u-bolt kit around, place it up on our plate. As you can see, on the bottom of each of our springs there's going to be a little tab that sticks out to help us align our lower plate. We'll put our four nuts here on the bottom. Now before tightening these down let's go over and get our other side taken care of using the same process we did on this side. Now we're going to tighten down our bolts. Now we can come over here to the other side and repeat the exact same process. As you're doing this, just tighten them down evenly. Now that we've got our axle nice and secure on both sides we're going to lower the trailer down, put the wheels on, and get our hubs adjusted. Let's get the lug nuts out of the way so we can get our tire put back on. Now we'll go ahead and put our tire on and start putting the lug nuts on to hold it in place. Now we'll just tighten our bolts down. Now it's time to tighten down our hubs. To do that we'll check our wheel is spinning nice and freely. Let's just tighten this nut down a little bit. I can feel there a little bit of resistance on our tire so just back that off slightly so we get a nice full rotation. Then we're going to place our keeper cage right over our tab. You'll have the small tab located right there on the inside of our cage. That will be lined up with the flat spot on our axle as we slide this in. With that in place we're ready to put on our cover. We'll just bring this up and over and we'll use a soft mallet or a hammer with a block of wood. Then we'll bring in our grease gun and fill our hub up with some axle grease. Once we start to see it coming around the outside of our cap there, it's starting to fill up that opening, we'll know that we've got the proper amount of grease in there. We'll now take the cover and slide that right into place. This side's sealed up. We're ready to head down the road with this. Let's go over to the other side and we can complete these same processes over there. That will complete today's installation of the Dexter idler trailer axle with hubs. The part number is 20545I-EZ-60-10. .

The illustration shows the hubs and bearings installed. Not so! The bearings, hubs, lug nuts, and dust covers were all packed together - both sets in one box. Both dust covers were badly bent - they would work, but your new installation would look shoddy. Luckily, the bearings and seals did not appear damaged. 501609

Really good solid axle... I needed the mounting tabs moved and had a metal fabricator do the work for $20.00. This was used on an old boat trailer that I turned into a utility trailer. Also swapped out the springs with ones purchased from etrailer too. To complete the package I ordered (3) 165/65-8 trailer tires. The trailer tows straight and hauls everything I've ever needed to. 247728


Comments
This axle and springs are perfect for what I was looking to accomplish. Trailer tows straight and true and has saved me with large items on several occasions. I no longer have to drive 45 minutes to borrow a truck to haul stuff...

This is my second order from the etrailer.com. The items that I have ordered from them are exactly like they are described. And this replacement axle is a perfect fit for my small kit utility trailer. I'm looking forward to using the EZ-lube feature next year. It was also very simple to pack the bearings for the first time. Etrailer.com is my go to source for trailer parts, I have already recommended them to other people for parts, and will do so in the future. 243459

This product is everything promised. The wonderful salesperson on the other end of the telephone, (Jean P.) made sure that everything went smoothly. The parts were complete and well packaged for shipping. The order even arrived a day early! I cruised all of my local stores (no one had the right combination of parts) and the internet (companies not responding to requests for information) for a week before settling on etrailer.com and I then placed my order within 1 minute of making the phone call to them. They had and knew exactly what I needed. Great Job guys! 159139


Comments
I use this trailer nearly everyday hauling all sorts of combinations of weights and lengths of lumber and household items. The axle has held up very well and has become the least of my concerns when on the road. Ive recommended the company many times over the course of the year and will continue to do so. Again, great job guys!

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Axles

  • Will Slipper Springs be Installed Above or Below New Dexter Axle
    If you are installing the Dexter Idler Trailer Axle w/ Hubs # 20545I-EZ-60-10 with the U-Bolt Kit # APUBR-10 on your Harbor Freight trailer you will install the slipper springs, either # SP-039275 or # SP-179275, below the axle like in the linked installation video. This axle will work as a replacement, though I do recommend verifying your current axle has the same 48" spring-center-to-spring-center length and 60" hub-face-to-hub-face length.

  • Parts Needed to Move the Spring Seat of the Dexter Axle part # 20545I-EZ-60-10
    The axle part # 20545I-EZ-60-10 that you referenced has a 1-3/4 inch diameter and the # K71-384-00 is designed for a 2-3/8 inch axle so that would not work. What you could use is the # TRSS175 as it is a spring seat confirmed to work on this diameter axle. For a U-bolt kit you would want part # APUBR-10. You should have no problem using your current leaf springs with this axle as well.

  • Recommended Leaf Springs and U-Bolt Kit for New Trailer Axle
    The Dexter Idler Trailer Axle w/ Hubs # 20545I-EZ-60-10 referenced in your question is a 2,200 pound axle. In order to choose the correct size leaf springs, I recommend measuing the length of your existing/previous set. For example, the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-219275 has a length of 25-1/8 inches from the center of spring eye to the center of spring eye. You will want to get as close as you can to the length of your previous leaf springs, keeping in mind that they may have stretched...

  • Parts Needed to Modify 4 x 8 Utility Trailer to 5-Lug Hubs and Larger Wheels and Tires
    It is possible to change out your trailer axle, hubs, wheels and tires to different/larger types but do note that replacing the axle and hubs will not necessarily increase the trailer's capacity to carry weight. Actual trailer weight capacity is a function of many factors including the axles, hubs, wheels and tires, but also the trailer's frame and decking.

  • Can Trailer Weight Capacity Be Increased by Changing the Axle
    Changing out a trailer axle could potentially be considered an upgrade for your trailer so long as the axle was the lowest-rated part of the trailer. This is not always easy to determine unless you happen to be a mechanical design engineer. I would not presume that the deck surface of the trailer can also handle the same increased weight that a higher-capacity axle could. Wheels, tires and the trailer's frame also have a fixed capacity that could be the limiting factor in actual weight...

  • Can the Axle or Spindles be Replaced on a 1,000 Pound Harbor Freight Trailer
    I do have a solution for you but we have only the most common size straight axles. Also you may be able to remove the spindles on your current axle but any new ones would have to be welded on by a professional with experience with this kind of trailer work. What I recommend is to use Timbren Axle-less system # A12WS545. You would use this set in place of a traditional axle and leaf spring suspension. The benefits are better ground clearance, less maintenance, and much fewer parts that...

  • Recommended Axle With 5 On 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern Idler Hubs And Wheels
    I contacted Harbor Freight's tech services line regarding your Haul Master Trailer. Your trailer may have an odd size axle, so the industry standard size parts would not be compatible. Their tech services can't give me the information to help you, so I would need you to pull your hub and give me the bearing number on it for me to tell you if we can change the hubs out for 5 lug or not.

  • Difference Between Dexter Trailer Idler Axle 20545I-EZ-60-10 and 20545I-EZ-60-15
    The difference between the Dexter Trailer Idler Axle part # 20545I-EZ-60-10 and part # 20545I-EZ-60-15 is that the former is compatible with wheels from 8"-12" and the latter is compatible with wheels from 13"-15". The surface area on the hub is larger on the latter option which is why it is compatible with larger wheels but aside from this they are the exact same.

    While we do not make the axles and just sell them, we do carry some axles which measure 60 inches from hub face to hub face and 48 inches from spring center to spring center (the next shortest is 72 inches). You have options depending on if you want the axle to come with idler hubs or no hubs, standard or EZ-Lube spindles, and a 2,000 lb or 2,200 lb capacity. For example, the Dexter Idler Trailer Axle # 20545I-EZ-60-10 has EZ-Lube spindles, idler hubs with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt...

  • Recommended Axle with Hubs and Wheel/Tires for Old Trailer
    The pilot hole size is what makes the wheels difficult to match. We have a few options for 5 lug wheels but they all have the 2.81 inch pilot hole in the center. I recommend changing out your axle as you stated to the Dexter Idler Trailer Axle w/ Hubs - EZ-Lube - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 60" Long - 2,200 lbs # 20545I-EZ-60-10. This has 48 inch on center spring seats. It also has the hub assemblies and spindles with the EZ-Lube for easy maintenance. Then I recommend the Kenda 215/60-8...

  • Could Spring Seats of Trailer Axle 20545I-EZ-60-10 be Moved
    We don't have any 60 inch axles that have the spring seat dimensions where you need them as we only carry a select few axles at this point. To get what you need would require you to either order a custom axle locally or have the seats of the part # 20545I-EZ-60-10 moved.

  • Trailer Axle Recommendation Where Trailer has 48 inches Between Spring Seat on Center
    An axle like the part # 20545I-EZ-60-10 will technically fit your trailer since the spring seat dimensions are the same, but each wheel on your trailer will set out an additional 1/2 inch compared to the old axle. Most likely that wouldn't be a problem but you would still need to check fender clearance if applicable.

  • What is the Right U-Bolt Kit for Dexter 2200 Pound EZ Lube Axle T20BTR-EZ-6048
    Trailer axle # 20545I-EZ-60-10 does not come with the u-bolts but they are available, # APUBR-10. The related parts on the right hand side of the product page shows this and the other possible accessories you may need. The axle does come with the sprint seats and spindles already welded on.

  • Replacement Axle for a 1,800 Gross Trailer Weight Boat Trailer
    For your trailer I recommend axle # 20545I-EZ-60-10. It is rated for 2,200 pounds and comes with hubs. Hubs will be needed because the spindles on it use the same size bearings for the inner and outer which is different than the hubs you currently have. This is an EZ Lube axle meaning there are grease fittings at the ends of the spindles so adding grease is easy. I am willing to bet that your hub face to hub face measurement is 60 inches and the spring seat centers are 48 inches....

  • How to Adapt CE Smith Trailer Axle Kit CE33201GA-HUB for 55-1/2-Inch Spring Spacing
    We do not have axle kits with a 55-1/2-inch spring center spacing but you can still use an axle like # CE33201GA-HUB so long as it is rated properly for your application simply by having two steel spacers like # 01077-011 welded at the appropriate positions on the axle tube. You may just need to enlarge the holes to match the size of the nuts on the spring stacks before you have them welded on. It is not a good idea to drill new holes in the axle as this could reduce its capacity. This...
