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.

E-Z Lube Spindles Make Lubrication Simple

The E-Z Lube spindles on this axle are meant to work with E-Z Lube-compatible hubs to make lubricating your bearings quick and easy. Each E-Z Lube spindle has a zerk fitting on the end. And every E-Z Lube hub comes with a grease cap that has an easy-to-remove rubber plug. Just pop out the plug on the cap to access the zerk on the spindle. When you inject grease into the zerk with a grease gun, the grease will flow to both the inner and outer bearings of the hub, lubricating the bearings and forcing out old, ineffective grease. Once you see new grease beginning to be pushed out, you know that your bearings are fully lubricated. This means that you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

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"

  • Which Axle to Add to a Trailer with Two Axles and Dexter 8-201-9 Hubs
    It looks like the numbers you gave me are for a Dexter 6K axle. If you want to add another axle, then we have three options depending on the length of your current axles. If your axles measure 86-1/2" from hub face to hub face, then part # 8327826-EB is the new axle for you. If they measure 89", then use part # 8327830-EB. If they measure 95", then use part # 7461121-EB. Each of these axles are 6K Dexter EZ-Lube axles with 6 on 5-1/2" bolt patterns. The only difference is the...

    The best option I have for you would be to obtain two new axles, the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes part # 8327826-EB which come with everything that you need but will require a wheel with 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern.

  • Availability of Trailer Axles With 72 Inch Spring Centers
    The two relevant dimensions when replacing a trailer axle is the hub face to hub face of the existing axle and the center to center spring seat dimension.

  • Axle Kits with Electric Brakes to Replace Mobile Home Axles
    We do carry replacement magnets and other parts for electric drum brakes, including some older designs. I linked the replacement magnets we carry for 12 x 2 brakes, parts # BP01-225 and # BP01-180. However, mobile home axles are not intended for continuous use on a trailer. Mobile home axles are manufactured to be strong enough only for one use to transport the dwelling to its destination - just that one time. Mobile home axles are not safe for ongoing use on a trailer.

  • Replacement Axle Option for 92-1/2" Hub Face to Hub Face and 70" From Spring Center to Spring Center
    I'm not seeing any axles that match those specs; they're all just a bit too long.

The closest axle in terms of spring centers is the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 86-1/2" - 6K # 8327826-EB and has 71" spring center to spring center.

  • Looking For Replacement Trailer Axles With 70 Inch Spring Center and 85 Inch Hub Face Spacing
    We carry a Dexter 6K axle that comes very close to the measurements you specified. The # 8327826-EB has an 86-1/2 inch hub face to hub face dimension, which means it would only be 3/4 of an inch longer on each side which should still work well for you. The spring seats are 71-1/2 inches apart, but they could easily be removed and new ones could be tacked in place using part # TRSS300 which are sold individually.
