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.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle in Trailer Axles


After a rust related axle failure, my equipment trailer was down. (If you roll in the rust belt, check your axles near where the brake wire goes through) After checking my local source, I was told there was a long lead time for new axles due to the pandemic. I was so happy to find etrailer. They had the exact axles I needed. After I pulled the axles I realized I also needed hardware and u-bolts. Everything arrived ahead of schedule, allowing me to get back up and running quickly. Thank you etrailer. You are a valuable resource.

Specs. matched exact to the broken axle and was easy to install. I was surprised that the axle was pre-wired although it was not replacement of the brake axle on my trailer. Hub fit nicely and trailer is now ready for the next haul job. Delivery was as promised.

The axle has been a good replacement and has worked as it should.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle in Trailer Axles


Perfect fit, nice axle and fast delivery. I liked it so much I ordered another a day later to replace the front axle. My 30 yr old tandem trailer's axle broke at the wheel, so I went to a local store which doesn't stock them anymore. Could of ordered a so so axle for $94 + $28 shipping and wait 2 weeks but needed it fast. I went to a major trailer sales & service shop and told "maybe we could get one for $250" with no call back. I decided to check out etrailer and was surprised to see Dexter axles that fit my trailer for $140 with FREE shipping in 3-4 days! Ordered Sat. night, got it Wednesday afternoon, and installed it (with brakes) in an hour. Only problem I had was determining if spindles would fit my hubs. They stated "1/16th spindle" and must be industry talk but french to me. So I had to look up bearing #'s they listed to check bearing sizes to make sure they fit my hubs. A little more time but not a deal breaker. The best part was the huge difference in ride with just one new axle. Always had bouncing loaded or not, but now with just one axle the ride is smoother no load and with my 4000 lb tractor on it. Can't wait to get the 2nd axle on that arrived today. First two pics show the difference between the old straight axle and the new dexter axle. The third is a pic of my 2nd axle, oh well. Etrailer is my new go to place for trailer parts. I have 7 trailers.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle in Trailer Axles


I received the items in a very timely fashion and in great shape. I torched off the old U bolts and removed the axle. I removed the new spring seats using a cut off wheel in my grinder and moved them inward one inch on each side, then MIG weld the new ones on they lined up perfectly to the old ones. I then installed the new U bolt kit and torqued them down to 65 foot lbs. The old bearings were only one year old and reused them after cleaning. I installed new seals at this time. The brake pads were same age as bearings showing little wear. The old axles were not Dexter axles and rusted from the inside out then broke off by the drop.. I replaced both. Was a pleasant experience and would do it all over again.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle in Trailer Axles


I inherited an aluminum trailer that ended up needing a complete overhaul and etrailer was the best resource I could have found. After researching extensively to find out what I needed and watching their videos on how to do it I ended up ordering an EZ-lube axle, galvanized hubs, springs and a hanger kit (in other words everything from the frame down). Everything shipped quickly and arrived in great shape. All the parts worked perfectly and I couldn't be happier!

Trailer axel fit properly without issues to replace an axel that broke probably from heavy loads on very potted country roads. So far this axel has held up and performed beautifully. Provided instructions and videos very helpful including information to select correct replacement axel. These folks go out of their way to help ensure correct installation and use. Far better than any other supplies I have used.

Great service as always out of etrailer. I ordered 2 new axles for my car carrier, great specs on your webpage made for a perfect match. Items arrived in 3 days, heavily wrapped and will add that the end of the axles which could rust if not installed soon were covered in grease, a nice touch to insure no damage. Thanks as always for having a great source for all things trailers!...

    Yes, that sounds about right. If your 12,000 lb gooseneck trailer has 2 axles then that would mean you need an axle rated for around 6,000 lbs. It would be best to check the tag on your axle or on the front of your trailer to double check too just to be on the safe side. When choosing a replacement axle you also need to check the hub-face and spring-center measurements so that they match what you currently have.

  • Can Trailer Axle Spring Seats be Relocated If Needed
    You can weld on new spring seats on your axle without compromising the integrity. So if you went with the part # 8327826 you could install the new seats with part # TRSS300 which would be easier than moving the brackets on the trailer frame. The extra width of the wheels being pushed out would not be an issue either. Going to a spring with more leaves would not be an issue either. We have the part # SP-053275 which is a 6 leaf 6k axle spring that is 26 inches long as well.
