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"

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Idler Hubs in Trailer Axles


Product seems to be built well. I was missing a set of outer bearings that I had to get from a local tractor supply due to time constraints. They were missing when shipped to me. I have been happy so far with this product as I have pulled my home built teaardrop on it. I have traveled over 3k miles with it as well as a tire set I purchased from etrailer. Contender ST205/75R15 Radial Tire w 15" Good sturdy wheels and tires and they look good in person.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Idler Hubs in Trailer Axles


I purchased a number of products from etrailer and I am very pleased with them all. The shipper lost my axle. When I contacted etrailer customer service, they handled my problem quickly and I had a replacement axle in a couple days. Well done! The products were all of high quality and the assemble was much easier as a result. I have attached a few pictures of the build for those interested. Thanks etrailer for your great products and service!!

I love these springs. The trailer is well supported and rides perfectly on the road. The trailer has performed better than my expectations. The products I purchased are all performing perfectly. When I build my next trailer, I will get all my assemble products from etrailer.com

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Idler Hubs in Trailer Axles


I recently purchased a 1997 Pacific boat trailer, 2,000 lb capacity. Installed new lights, spare tire carrier, and tongue jack two months ago. Decided I may as well replace the wheel bearings and seals only to discover the spindles had deep gouges from the seals or material between the seal and spindle shaft. The right side (as viewed from the rear) even had a deep gouge in the seal area from who knows what. Surprisingly, the wheel bearings were fine. My initial intention was to use what is called a "speed sleeve" to repair the seal contact area on the spindle, in addition to replacing the wheel bearings. The bearings were an odd size, thus somewhat expensive. Cheaper to replace the hubs but with the "speed sleeves", would come out to nearly $200, notwithstanding my labor. To the rescue, etrailer! I measured my existing axle per the directions from the staff and ordered a replacement axle with hubs and a U-bolt kit for nearly the same price. Shipping was surprisingly fast given current events and a brand new axle and associated parts were delivered last night (8 April, 2020). I've replaced wheel bearings before but have never replaced a trailer axle, so I was initially somewhat intimidated by the job. I jacked the trailer up to remove the wheels and used jack stands to ensure it would remain that way while I proceeded to remove the old axle. The u-bolts (not quite a U given the square axle) were not too bad to remove. I used copious amounts of WD-40 on the threads and an adjustable wrench did the rest of the work. I was going to use an air ratchet but did not have enough clearance and did not wish to risk raising the trailer any further. The old axle came out fine and was a bit heavy, around 50 lbs by my reckoning. Given the service life of 23 years, I'd say it did a good job (it was the original axle). Interestingly, the new axle weighed a good 10 - 15 lbs lighter... The new axle went in fine, although due to the camber, which the original axle did not have, it took a bit of "squeezing" to get the holes on the spring seats. Nothing terrible, and my initial measurements were correct. I did not take photos of the bearing and seal installation process as my hands had a fair amount of grease on them but if you follow the instructions, it is relatively simple. Make sure you "cup" the outer bearing area with grease in your palm to force it between the rollers. You will know when you have enough as it will be pushed between the rollers on the other side. Take a look at some [online] videos if you have never seen it done before. I believe there is a video on the etrailer website. I used a short piece of 2x4 to install the seals and they went in without fanfare. I would recommend wiping a thin film of grease on the seal seating area of the hub prior to seal installation. Installing the hubs was relatively straight forward, I seated the bearings while rotating the hubs to the recommended 50 ft/lbs. Then backed off WITHOUT rotating the hub, finger tightening, and installing the locking clips, which I have never seen before as I typically use cotter pins. I installed the wheels and will be installing my "Bearing Buddies" later this afternoon. All told, the job took me approximately 2 1/2 hours, maybe 3. I took my time and did my best to ensure it was a safe evolution given that the trailer had to be raised enough to allow axle replacement. I will re-torque the u-bolts after some use and will probably re-seat the bearings as well. The price on the new bearings and seals is a significant improvement over what had come standard with the trailer. Tools used were a 3/4" socket and 3/8" drive ratchet, 10" adjustable wrench, 1 1/2" socket and 1/2" drive torque wrench, 1/2" socket for the new u-bolts, a soft faced hammer to remove the "Bearing Buddies", (2) jack stands, and standard floor jack. Paper towels were most helpful during the bearing greasing and installation process... If you have never done this before, like me, I can assure you it was relatively straight forward and I'm sitting here somewhat proud of myself... Kudo's to the staff at etrailer!

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Idler Hubs in Trailer Axles


After years of hauling firewood my Harbor Freight Trailer Axle fatigued and cracked. The Dexter Axle from etrailer got me back on the trail. Welded leaf spring seats on the opposite side of the axle at a spacing of 46.5 inches. The wheels stick out an additional 3/4 inch per side. The trailer now rides like a Cadillac. Very excited about putting my faithful trailer back in service, with a serious axle underneath that I have confidence in. The folks at etrailer very helpful and responsive. Thanks

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Idler Hubs in Trailer Axles


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.


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...

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Idler Hubs in Trailer Axles


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.

I bought a axle, springs wheels, hubs etc. to build a utility trailer, I inadvertently had ordered incompatible hubs for the selected axle the person filling the order noticed this and contacted customer service to alert them of the issue who then called me to correct the problem. This saved me the time and expense of returning the part and delaying the project. great service, attentive, knowledgeable employees and great products. Thanks E trailer.

  • Can I Use the Dexter 3500-lbs Axle with Overslung Suspension
    Yes. The Dexter Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 89" Long - 3,500 lbs # 35545I-ST-89 will work with a trailer that has moved the leaf spring suspension to over the axles. Typically an axle has a slight bend in it because of the weight that it's going to bear, and will flatten out completely and be level to the ground. This won't affect the suspension that can be used with it. I've linked our entire selection of 3500-lbs axles for you to have a look at as well...

  • Can Custom Axles be Ordered or is there an Alternative to Straight Trailer Axles
    Straight axles can be made to order by visiting a local trailer/tractor supply store but I have a better alternative. I recommend switching to a Timbren axle-less system # ASR3500S05. This system takes the place of the axle and the suspension. The rubber suspension requires no maintenance and won't corrode like traditional leaf springs which will save you money over the life of the trailer. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Trailstar Trailer Axle is Bent Causing Tires to Wear Quickly
    The problem may not be your axle at all. Is it bent upwards or downwards towards the ground? If it is upwards then that is normal but down means it does need to be replaced. The reason axles have an upward arc to them is so that when a load is placed on them they straighten out and your tires run evenly. When the inside of the tread on your tires wears on the inside that is a good indication that you are overloading the axle which is causing it to bend down too much. Try checking...

    The only recommendation I could make for you would be to install new axles on your trailer. Mobile home axles are designed as one time use axles. They usually have odd spindle sizes on them that make them incompatible with standard trailer hubs. Attached is a page that has all of the axles we have with the correct hubs included. You will want to determine which will suit your trailer based on the overall length axle you want from hub face to hub face, then select the distance between...

  • Option For Replacing Axle On Trailer With No Hub Available
    The only suggestion I can offer is a replacement axle, and the reason for that is there simply aren't any hubs with a 15118 inner bearing and 09074 outer bearing. I realize this isn't the news you were looking for, but due to the age of the axle and the fact there aren't any replacement hubs, the best option over the long-term will be a new axle. If this is a route you want to go, there are a few things you'll need to know in order to determine the right replacement axle. The first...

  • Can Axle Spring Seats Be Relocated
    You can certainly relocate the spring perches if you wish, it's a pretty common practice. The process of removing them will likely render them useless, however so you'll likely need to replace them. We offer replacements as part # TRSS238 which are compatible with a 2-3/8 inch diameter axle beam like what the # 35545I-ST-89 axle you'd looked at uses.

  • Can Brakes be Added to Second Axle in Tandem Axle Setup
    You can definitely add brakes to an axle without purchasing another one. The easiest thing is if your axle already has a brake mounting flange installed on it. If your axle doesn't then you can have one welded on, but we typically recommend replacing the axle in this case just because you can have the peace of mind that the flange was done professionally. I am attaching a link to some helpful articles on adding different types of brakes to an axle that you can check out. I am also attaching...

    We do have a potential solution for you, but no hubs that fit those measurements you gave, unfortunately. That isn't altogether surprising though considering you said you had mobile home axles, which are not meant for traveling more than once. So the best option we have is for you to replace your current axle. In order to choose the correct replacement axle for your trailer you will need to know the dimensions of your current axle's hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center...

  • Looking for a 3500 Pound Trailer Axle with or without Hubs
    All of the 3500 pound straight axles we carry measure 89 inches long hub face to hub face and 74 inches long on center from spring seat to spring seat. You would have to order an axle from a local tractor or trailer supply store to your specifications. The other option is to use axle-less suspension such as # ASR3500S05.
