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.

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.

etrailer had the best prices and excellent customer service, Thanks Ian! Shipping was fast and free to boot. I bent the front axle on my in-laws fifth wheel camper and this axle fit the bill. I had to order a set of spring seats and weld them to the opposite sides. The original seats were at 68.5 " centers and that configuration was unavailable anywhere. 699314

If that is the case then yes you can as the diameter of the spindle where the bearings and grease seal ride are the same. Therefore, even though they may use a different outer bearing, the diameter for the inside of the bearing where it sits on the spindle...

  • 7,000 Lb Trailer Axle with 86 Inch Long Hub Faces
    I do have options for you but none of or trailer axles are 86" long hub face to hub face, 62" long spring center to spring center, and have a 7,000 lb capacity. Instead, we have the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam part # 8327826 which is 86-1/2" long hub face to hub face, 71-1/2" long spring center to spring center, and has a 6,000 lb capacity or the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System part # TASR7KS01 which has a 7,000 lb capacity.

  • Trailer Axle Rated for 6,000 or 7,000 Pounds
    We have some axles but trailer axles can be made to pretty much any length. The ones we have rated for 6,000 or 7,000 pounds do not have the measurements you are looking for. But we do have some more universal options such as # TASR7KS01 rated for 7,000 pounds. This will also replace the suspension on the trailer so no more worrying about corrosion or various worn suspension parts. I have linked a video review for you. If you need to have a straight axle you would need to special order...

  • Hub/Drums and Brake Assemblies that Fit 6k Dexter Axle 8327826
    Yes we offer hub/drums with an 8 lug bolt pattern that fit the Dexter Axle part # 8327826 you referenced. The hub you mentioned part # 42866UC3-EZ will fit and then for brake assemblies you'd want the # AKEBRK-7-SA for a set of self adjusting assemblies. The hubs come with bearings as well.

  • 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. Are you sure about that spring seat center to center distance? The closest axles we offer are a 5200 or a 6000 lb axle with a 71-1/2 spring seat center to center dimension. All have a hub face to hub face dimension of 86-1/2 inches. I've provided a diagram showing these dimensions. We have a total of 4 axles available with these...

  • Replacing the Axle on a Gooseneck Horse Trailer
    An axle flip kit like part # K71-384-00 will raise the trailer the diameter of the axle plus the height of the leaf spring pack. I do have options for you but rotating the axle to where the bend faces the other direction is not one of them. The bend in the axle will actually straighten out once a load is placed on the trailer and if this was reversed, the axle would lose capacity. Now from this point forward you have two options both of which entail replacing the axle. Since your current...

  • Locating Replacement Axle for 1998 Hudson Trailer with Mobile Home Hubs
    You are correct that the closest standard trailer axles we have available to the hub face length you mentioned are 86-1/2" units such as the Dexter 5,200 pound # 8327816 or the 6,000 pound # 8327826. Please keep in mind that when selecting a replacement axle you also need to make sure it matches the capacity of the existing model.

  • 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. The # 8327826-EB comes complete with electric brake assemblies and a hub/drum...
