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.

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Axles

  • Can I Re-Use Hubs and Drums From a 3500-lb Axle on a New 6000-lb Axle?
    No, you won't be able to use the hubs and brake assembly from your 3500-lb axle on your 6000-lb axle. The hubs from the 3500-lb axle use an # L68149 inner bearing, which is a different size than the # 25580 inner bearing used on a 6000-lb axle like the Dexter # 8327830 ; it should also be noted that the outer bearings, seals and races will be different as well because of the size of the spindles on the axles. You'll also find that a 3500-lb axle uses 10" drums like the # AKHD-545-35-K and...

  • Can Axle Be Ordered with Loose Spring Seat Perches?
    The Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindles - 89" Long - 6,000 lbs # 8327830 comes with the spring seats (perches) welded in place and they cannot be ordered without them attached. However, you can add spring seats if you need them in a location other than the 74 inches on center. You would use the Spring Seat for Typical 5,200-lb to 7,200-lb, Round Trailer Axles with 3" Diameter # TRSS300 and you'd need to weld them in place and then prime and paint them for corrosion resistance....

  • Available 89-Inch Trailer Axles and Spring Seat Spacing
    All of our axles that have an 89-inch hub face spacing (see diagram, please) also have a spring center spacing of 74-inches. None of our axles has a 76-inch spring center spacing; the nearest ones are either 74 or 78-1/4-inches apart. But we can still help you with a new axle. You can refer to the linked page to see all of our axles. First select the weight rating of the axle you need. Our 89-inch axles such as # 8327830 are rated for up to 6K. Since you need spring seats in alternate...

  • Can the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam Part # 8327830 Be Used with a Top Mounted Leaf Spring
    In order to use the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam part # 8327830 with leaf springs mounted on top you would need to weld on new spring seats with part # TRSS300. The reason for this is that the existing spring seats are installed for use with a leaf spring mounted under the axle. Most think you can simply rotate the axle to move the spring seats on top but this cannot be done as the axle has a slight bend to help dissipate the weight when loaded.

  • 89 Inch Axle With 74 Inch Spring Center to Spring Center Length
    The closest we carry to a 7,000 lb axle with that length is the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindles # 8327830 which is 89 inches long and 74 inches spring center to spring center. An option you may want to check out is the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # TASR7KS01 which does not require an axle beam and does have the 7,000 lb capacity you are looking for. This system will fit any trailer width and is designed to fit trailers that came with single or tandem...

  • Will Switching From a Drop Axle to a Straight Axle Increase Tire Clearance
    The 175/80-13 tire that you have now is 24" diameter x 6.9" wide and the new 225/75-15 tire is 28.3" diameter x 8.9" wide. Therefore, the new tire size will be 4.3" larger in overall diameter and 2" larger in overall width. However, you will only need to account for half of each measurement so 2.15" for diameter and 1" for width. The conversion from the 4" drop axle you have now to a straight axle is actually going to bring the spindle down in line with the axle which means you are...

  • Recommended Kodiak Disc Brake Kit for Dexter Trailer Axle # 8327830
    Yes, the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit # K2HR79E referenced in your question will fit and work on the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam # 8327830 that you're needing for your trailer. The spindles on this axle are compatible with the bearings and seal that are used with the Kodiak hubs. As you also mentioned, these 13 inch rotors feature a 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. They will work with 16 inch or larger wheels. I have attached an installation video for this kit that you can take a look at as well.

  • How to Determine if Older Trailer Hubs Could Fit on Axle 8327830
    What you have is an older style of trailer hub but it could potentially work on the axle # 8327830 but you'd have to check first. Pull the hub off of the axle and measure the spindle diameter where the bearings ride. If you get the diameters 1.25 inch and 1.75 inch then your hub would work. Or you could pull the bearings out and get the numbers off of them. If they are 25580 and 15123 that would work as well.

  • How to Gain Additional Clearance on Cargo Trailer
    Thanks for the kind words! A replacement axle like # 8327830 wouldn't gain you any ground clearance. Since your photo you kindly provided shows that your leaf spring are currently mounted under your axle, an Over-Under Conversion Kit would allow you to mount the springs atop your axle, gaining you roughly the axle diameter plus the thickness of the spring pack as a height increase. Dexter offers the kits for 2-3/8 inch or 3 inch diameter axle beams. If you have a 2-3/8 inch axle beam...

  • Single or Tandem Axles for Homemade 24 ft x 98 Camper?
    Most campers that long are tandem axles so I would go that route. I took a look at some common GVWR's for campers of that size and it was in the 5,000 lb - 7,000 lb range so you need to keep that in mind; something like the 89" Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindles # 8327830 might work. You can also take a look at the help article I've added about where to position your trailer axle which should be useful.
