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 20545I-EZ-72-10 Review

Today we're going to review part number 20545I-EZ-72-10. This is the Dexter Trailer Axle with the straight easy EZ-lube spindles and the 5 on 4 1/2 inch idler hubs. This axle is 72 inches long, has a 2,200 pound weight capacity. This axle beam will act as part of your trailer suspension system. You can use it to replace an axle on your trailer or you can fabricate a suspension to fit your application. This is an idler axle, which means there are no break mounting flanges on it. It is made of a high strength steel.

We do ship it with the spindle nut, the D washer, and the nut retainer all installed on it, one on each end. When we ship it, we don't just ship it plain like this. Basically, what we would do is would we would put grease over the machine parts and then we'd wrap it to protect it, and then we'd use this very thick cardboard tubing that would go over it, then it's wrapped over it and wrapped around it to protect both ends - we do it on each end when we ship it. It does come with these cast iron idler hubs which are very sturdy and durable. It also comes with all these other parts shown on the table. It will come with the bearings, and for this part number it actually uses the same size and part number bearing for the inner and the outer, so you got two inner bearings, two outer bearings.

The races that the bearings would ride in are actually preinstalled in the hubs. The outer race is right there, the inner race is right in there on both hubs. It comes with the two double-width grease seals. Comes with the two EZ-lube center caps and when I say EZ-lube center caps basically they're a center cap that has a removable center rubber plug. The reason that is is you take that out to access the zerk fitting when you grease your EZ-lube axles. It comes with the ten 1/2 inch lug nuts to install your wheel assembly onto these hubs. The last item we include is the marine grade wheel bearing grease tube.

This is a 14 ounce tube of the marine bearing grease. Basically, you would just install this into your grease gun. If you already have a grease gun that accepts 14 ounce tubes, you can use your own. If you don't, we also sell as a related part on this product page, the grease gun right here that's part number L30200. This grease gun will use 14 ounce tubes if one is needed. This is a straight EZ-lube spindle; there's no drop to it.

The EZ-lube spindles have actually a built in grease zerk fitting on the end and the reason they do that is because on a lot of your standard axles, you got to grease your bearings, install them into the hub, put it in, tighten it down. If you're going to re-grease them or repack them you got to take it all apart, pack them with grease, put them back together. The nice thing with the EZ-lube axle is once you put your bearings and hub on, right here at the very end you can pump grease into this zerk fitting and it will go through the middle of the spindle. There's a little whole right here; it will come out the back and actually fill the cavity where your bearings are so that you don't have to disassemble the whole hub assembly just to grease the bearings - you can just pump the grease in here from the outside. Very simple lubrication system. You also might want to notice on all axles, they will have a bend near the center of the axle. Each axle is manufactured to create a certain camber angle so what happens is, you have the center riding a bit higher and the sides of the axle actually bent lower. This will allow the axle to give just enough to compensate for the load of the trailer. When you put your load on your trailer and it weighs down, it will straighten that axle out. This will give you the correct angle of your wheels for you towing needs and allows your trailer tires to run along the pavement evenly with the contact patch across the whole width of the read. The result is an excellent straight-line acceleration for steady in-line tracking. This axle is an underslung design. By that I mean the spring seats are welded to the underside of the axle. This is the spring seat is what you mount your leaf springs to. With them on the underside of the axle, it will give you a low ride height and it makes it easier to load and unload your trailer. Again, the spring seats are welded to the underside and the spindle is actually welded to the end of the axle. There's multiple ways to measure the length of an axle beam but the two most accurate ways are going to be the hub face to hub face measurement and the spring center to spring center length. Basically, what those two measurements are is once you install your hubs on the end of your spindles, you install the one on the underside, you would be measuring from this side, basically the base of one wheel stud, all the way across to the base of the wheel stud on the opposite side of the axle. Once these hubs are installed, you'd do that hub face to hub face measurement. I just want to give you an idea here; I know the hubs aren't installed, but still. Just to give me an estimate, this one is going to show 72 inches, and that's the hub face to hub face measurement, which is also the length of this axle. The other measurement is the spring center to spring center; basically, if you measure from the center of this spring seat to the center of the spring seat on the other side. That's usually roughly the width of your trailer, also. 58 inches on this one, spring center to spring center length. If you're replacing your trailer's axle, you should be able to figure out which by using these measurements. Use your trailer's weight capacity, the bolt pattern of the wheels on your trailer, and the break type on your trailer if breaks are being used. Just to go over some specs on this axle and these parts again, the weight capacity is 2,200 pounds on the axle. The hub face to hub face length was 72 inches. The spring center to spring center length was 58 inches. The outer diameter of this axle tube is 1 3/4 inches. The diameter of the spindle is 1 1/16 inches. The bolt pattern on these hubs is 5 on 4 1/2 inches. The studs are a 1/2 inch diameter, so they use the 1/2 inch lug nuts that we include. Because the flange on these diameter on these hubs - the flange diameter is basically the width if you drew a circle around this whole hub, the diameter of that circle is about 5 1/2 inches. Because of that it will accept wheel size anywhere from 8 inches to 12 inches in diameter. That should do it for the review on part number 20545I-EZ-72-10. This is the Dexter Trailer Axle with the straight EZ-lub spindles and the 5 on 4 1/2 inch idler hubs. .

Product came as ordered. Well packaged with ample covering on both ends of axle to prevent damage during mailing. Came with new castle nuts which I hadn't expected. I emailed a question about installing the bearings and got a quick response with a video attached. Did the trick. Installation was not difficult. I was able to do the install by myself (though they are right that a second pair of hands would have been better). Just recently installed so not enough miles to make a long term judgment as to how axle will hold up, but so far, so good. Would recommend both the product and the support staff. 171258

My review has nothing against etrailer. Shipping was great! My issues is about the Dexter axle. I have a 6x8 Tractor Supply trailer and it need a new axle. It had a dexter axle in it and on the label had 58-72. I measured it and it was what it's labeled and ordered a replacement 58-72. I went to install it and the spring perches were not 58. It was about 3/4" shorter than 58". I had to notch the spring perches to be able to center the axle. It all worked out in the end but still a small hassle. 221308

  • Recommended Replacement Axle For Homemade Trailer
  • My recommendation is to replace the entire axle. That way you would not have any issues with replacement hubs, bearings, races, and other components you need for your trailer. I have attached a link to our product page for the axles we offer with idler hubs. You would need to measure your trailer to find the correct size axle. If you find you can use a 60 inch axle measured hub face to hub face I recommend part # 20440I-EZ-60. This includes the idler hubs with bearings, races, and seals....

  • How To Install E-Z Lube Axles
  • The E-Z lube feature is located in the spindle not on the hub assembly. The spindle has a grease fitting on the end to allow for easy lubrication. As long as the hub is compatible with your spindle then it will not need to be rated for E-Z lube applications. If you want to install an E-Z lube setup, you will want to replace your trailer's axles as the bearing buddies are not compatible with E-Z lube in addition to the difficulty of replacing a trailers spindle.

  • 72 inch Long Trailer Axle Recommendation with 2,200 lb Capacity that can Fit 14 inch Wheels
  • The difference is the mounting flange on the hubs. Axles that have larger mounting flanges like the part # 20545I-EZ-72-15 can fit the larger wheels, whereas the # 20545I-EZ-72-10 has a small flange that doesn't match up to the bigger wheels. What you would want to do is go with the axle part # T20BTR-EZ-7258 that does not have hubs with it and then use the hubs # 8-258-50UC1-EZ that has the larger mounting flange on it and will give you the 2,200 lbs capacity you want in the correct size.

  • Dimensions for Picking Out Trailer Axles
  • You are going to need to measure your current axles in a few places to get the correct one as we don't have access to what your numbers reference. You will need to measure from hub face to hub face and then from the spring seat centers. You will also need to know what bolt pattern you have on your current hubs. I attached a help article on how to determine this as well. You might have 58 inches between the center of the spring seats based on what you listed like the part # 20545I-EZ-72-10. I...

  • Could Dexter Axle Replace 5 x 8 Utility Trailer
  • Yes, that would be fine. We don't have any 73 inch axles though. Just a 72 inch like the part # 20545I-EZ-72-10 which has a distance of 58 inches between the spring seats. If the spring seat dimension matches your trailer perfectly this would work great.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Axle that Wears Inside of Tires Out When Unloaded
  • Before you replace your axle you should try taking your trailer to a shop that has experience in aligning trailer axles. It sounds like your axle just needs an alignment, or someone flipped the axle in an attempt to raise/lower the trailer not realizing there is a bow in the axle that doesn't allow axles to just be rotated 180 degrees. Instead you have to install new spring seats on the other side of the axle so that the bow stays facing down. Since we cannot order in custom axles at...

  • Availability of 73 inch Long Trailer Axle with 58-1/2 inch Between Spring Seats
  • We have non-galvanized axles that are pretty close to the dimensions you need like the part # 20545I-EZ-72-10 which has 72 inches from hub face to hub face and 58 inches between spring seats but nothing that matches what you have totally or is galvanized. You'd have to contact a local trailer shop who can order you in custom axles based on the dimensions you need.

  • 72 inch Long Trailer Axle that is Compatible with 13 inch Wheels
  • The hub that comes with that axle is part # 8-259-5UC1-EZ which has a mounting flange that is not compatible with the mounting flange of 13 inch diameter wheels. For an axle of the same specs that can fit a 13 in ch wheel and has the same bolt pattern hub included you would want the # 20440I-EZ-72.

  • Difference Between 72 inch Dexter Axles 204401-EZ-72 and 20545I-EZ-72-10
  • The difference is the bolt pattern of the hubs that either axle comes with. The part # 20545I-EZ-72-10 comes with idler hubs that have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern and part # 20440I-EZ-72 comes with hubs with the bolt pattern 4 on 4 inch. The bearing fits pretty snugly in the hub and the seal acts to slightly hold it in as well.

  • Can Dexter Trailer Idler Axle Be Used on Trailer With Springs that Sit On Top Of Axle
  • The bend in the axle needs to be installed pointing upward, not down. If the axle is installed with the bend going toward the ground instead of toward the underside of the trailer, it will cause the camber of the wheels to be wrong. Since your springs touch the top of the axle instead of the bottom, you will want to have new spring seats welded to the top of the axle. For an axle with a 1-3/4 inch diameter like # 20545I-EZ-72-10 that you referenced, you will want a spring seat designed...

We also have axles-less trailer suspensions from Timbren that bolt on to the trailer frame and eliminate the leaf spring suspension completely which can provide excellent ground clearance when that is an important factor. You can see all of our axles on the linked page. For a 66-inch wide trailer you will probably want to use a 72-inch beam axle like # 20545I-EZ-72-10...

  • The Trailer Hub Assembly for 2,500-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - Cast # T1721400042 is the only hub we have with all of the elements you mentioned. There can be different dimensions between bearings based on the spindle. For instance we have 3 inch long spindles up to 6-1/2 inch spindles. Because you don't know what the parts came off of, I recommend you consider the Dexter Trailer Idler Axle w/ Hubs - EZ-Lube - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 72" Long - 2,200 lbs # 20545I-EZ-72-10.

The easiest way to identify a replacement grease seal is to pull one of the existing seals from the spindle to find its part number (or to measure it with a caliper like # PTW80157). You can search our site directly using the part number, such as 10-60. This seal is used on 2200-lb axles like # 20545I-EZ-72-10. This seal has an inner diameter of 1.50-inches and an outer...

  • Where to Position the Trailer Axle on a Tandem Axle Trailer
  • The point you will need to measure from in order to determine the correct placement of a trailer axle will be from the end of the coupler on the trailer. I have attached our "Where to Position the Trailer Axle?" help article for you. Based on my calculation and your information, I found that the center point between the two axles to the end of the tongue will need to be around 127.5". This would mean the axles need to be moved backward around 6".

  • Replacement 2200-lb Axle for LoadRite Single Axle Boat Trailer Model 5S-17220090T
  • The specs for the LoadRite boat trailer model 5S-17220090T show a weight capacity of 2200-lbs. I could not find your specific trailer model number 5S-172200V on their website. Often you can find a sticker or plate on the trailer's axle that indicates its weight rating. If you can confirm the 2200-lb axle capacity then you can refer to the linked page that displays the 60-inch and 72-inch axles we offer with this capacity. We have kits that have 4-on-4 idler hubs such as # 20440I-EZ-60...

  • Measurements Needed to Pick Out Replacement Trailer Axle
  • With the serial number we might be able to track down what you need. Also we don't have an extensive line of trailer axles at this time so we may not have what you need. To pick out the correct axle though you'll need to measure from hub face to hub face and then from the spring seat centers. You will also need to know what bolt pattern you have on your current hubs. I attached a help article on how to determine this as well. You might have 58 inches between the center of the spring seats...

  • How To Pick Out Replacement Axle for Trailer
  • You are going to need to measure your current axles in a few places to get the correct one as we don't have access to what your numbers reference. You will need to measure from hub face to hub face and then from the spring seat centers. You will also need to know what bolt pattern you have on your current hubs. I attached a help article on how to determine this as well. You might have 58 inches between the center of the spring seats based on what you listed like the part # 20545I-EZ-72-10. I...

  • What are Dimensions Needed to Pick Out Trailer Axles
  • The dimensions you listed are the correct ones needed to pick out a trailer axle. You have to base it off the hub face to hub face dimension for overall length and then spring seat center to center dimension for mounting. We don't have exactly what you need as our closest option is the part # 20545I-EZ-72-10 which is off by 1 inch in hub face to hub face dimension and only has a 2,200 lb capacity. Since we only carry a very select few of the axles available you'd need to find a local...

  • Trailer Axle Recommendation that is 72 inches Long with 58 inches Between Spring Seats
  • For an idler hub that matches the dimensions you mentioned of 72 from hub face to hub face and then 58 inch to spring center to center we have the part # 20545I-EZ-72-10 that comes with idler hubs that have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. As long as you have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern this axle would work well for you. I attached a help article on how to determine bolt pattern.

  • Video Showing How to Install Trailer Hubs and Hub and Drum Assemblies
  • Yes, we do have videos showing installation of hubs. I have included a link to one for you. I have also linked a video showing installation of a hub and drum assembly. Between these two videos you should be able to install some hubs with no problems.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Hub that Fits too Tight Against the Brake Assemblies
  • Sounds like the brake assembly you are installing on your trailer has the pads adjusted too far. On the bottom of the assembly there will be a star wheel that you can turn in either direction. You will want to turn it so that the brake pads come closer together which will give your hub more clearance to install. Check out the video I attached at the 4:25 mark to see one of our installers adjusting the brake assemblies with them installed on the trailer.
