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"

I had a bearing fail on my 2003 Holiday Rambler andit wiped the axel . Dexter told me a minimum time to make an new axel 6 weeks. I looked up the specs on the old axel and compared to units at etrailer finding a unit with overall length the same and greater load I was able to add new spring perches and replace the old axel in one day!

I purchased an axle from a farm store and it was cheap and cheap. This Dexter axle is American made and trailer makes it easy by delivering it to your door and providing step by step videos for installation! Save your self time and money and buy this axle from etrailer. Mine arrived in just two days! Always fast and reasonably priced!

Still an awesome axle! I haul a lot of heavy loads and this axle never shows any signs of stress. Bearings are still like new and the shaft housing is still rust free!

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


Installed a yr ago. Perfect product. One thing for me though.... I had to buy different fenders because I bought better tires and rims for this new axle which turned out to be slightly wider. So the original fender would have cut into the tires. I got everything from etrailer. Axle with brakes fully assembled, controller, fenders, wire harness, connections tires, time and more...and couldn't be happier with cust service, pricing and availability.

Great high quality axles! I installed two of these on a boat trailer with one brake and one idler hub. It was a rebuild from single to dual axles. All the parts were well organized and packaged well and free shipping- thanks etrailer! Good service and value all around. I hauled the boat about 100 miles today and it all works perfectly. A vast improvement in performance.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


I purchased these axles and brakes to replace the old axles on my car hauler. Everything went smoothly with this order. I received my axle and hubs much faster than I anticipated. The parts were well packaged and everything is exactly as I ordered it. I had never installed hubs on trailer axles but after watching one of etrailer's instructional videos I had both sides of the idler axle done in less than 30 minutes. I had similar results on the axle that I put electric brakes on as well. Dexter axles with the EZ-Lube spindles are well worth the money. Bottom line I couldn't be happier with the products and service.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


I needed to replace the axle on my 6.5 x 16 foot utility trailer, and since I tow a larger ATV and 500 lbs of other gear every day November to March, also needed brakes on this trailer. This kit was a good remedy for me. The videos on E Trailer are excellent, well produced, and allowed me to get the job done quickly.

A utility trailer worked daily from November to late March gets a lot of stress. So far, working out well. Thanks!

Great service, fast delivery, and exceptional support. I would never think of buying trailer parts anywhere else. The axle purchased was of high quality, and the wheels are top notch. Very happy with my purchase!

The axle and wheels have been on my trailer for a year. The brakes are responsive and powerful, and react well to the brake controller. The wheels have been excellent, and the rims are true and work great. I do t have anything bad to day about this setup!

I bought 2 of these and one idler axle for a 30ft triple axle deck over trailer I was building for carrying a 4x4 truck and two quads. built using these as I wanted a true 7000 lb capacity trailer plus I didn't want to get into the big 8 lug axles. everything arrived in perfect condition, great prices, free shipping on orders over $99. Great company for delivery and back up. I ended up buying two braked axles, one idler, six modular silver wheels and radial tires. junction box RV plug, Hopkins breakaway switch etc. could not have built this trailer without etrailer.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


The 14' dove tail trailer I built has worked well for everything except what it was built for. The 64 Ranchero pro gas car was put on the back burner so the trailer hauls lumber, carpet and whatever building materials I need. The trailer is over built for what I haul so I am relieved the brakes are not grabby and the suspension tracks true behind my truck. Best of all was the xlnt customer service when there was a small problem with my order. It was taken care of immediately ! I am the welder fabricator at my work and will continue to recommend E Trailer for anybody modifying, upgrading or replacing parts on their trailers.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


Due to adding weight to my 17' bass boat, it became too heavy to pull with my caravan without having trailer brakes. With Steve's help, he guided me thru everythi ng that I needed to replace the complete axle, including controller and all accessories. I had all the work done by others, and still ended up paying less than $1,000 for everything. Now, I am legal on the road and do not have to worry about my insurance not covering me if I am in an accident. Everything works smoothly and correctly. I will buy all my trailer parts from now on thru etrailer. Thanks Steve for a job well done

Since mobile home axles are just meant to be used once we want to focus on weight capacity and fit with your trailer frame to make sure we get something that is a good replacement.

    To be honest the brakes that were on your Lippert 5.2K axles were probably from Dexter Axle as they are the most common brakes on any trailer. Since your OEM brake controller on your Ram pickup worked with the old brakes it isn't likely that all of the sudden it wasn't compatible, especially since the brakes on the Dexter Axle # 8327830-EB are just standard eletric brakes and it isn't an electric-over-hydraulic (EOH) system.
