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. This axle is also built with drop spindles, which will lower the ride height of your trailer to allow for easier 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Axles - Leaf Spring Suspension - 8327860

Ellen: Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with a 4" Drop and E-Z Lube Spindles. Now, our trailer axle is going to be the basis of our suspension system. So this is going to either replace an existing axle that was broken, damaged or maybe just rusted out and worn out or be the basis of our new fabrication for our application. Our axle beam has the welded on spring seats and spindles on either end. Right now, I have the little cap that this comes shipped with.

So this is going to make sure that everything stays relatively rust-free in transit. Underneath that we'll have our washer, nut and nut keeper there and you can also see the grease circ on the end. That's going to give us the E-Z Lube application, so you can lube this up without having to take the whole bearing or the whole hub off every time to get your bearings greased up. So you can just put your grease gun on there, pump it up, then it's good to go.You'll typically also want to get the E-Z Lube grease caps, so that you can just pop off that little rubber keeper on the end. So again, that you're not having to remove the whole cap to get that done.

The caps are sold separately, as well as the bearings, seals, hubs, drums, brakes, all that good stuff. You can find all those things right here at etrailer.com, if you want to pick them up while you're getting your axle. But as far as the specs for this, it's going to have a 7,000 pound capacity. So that's going to be a pretty high weight rating for our axle. Has a four inch drop, so that's going to lower our trailer down a little closer to the ground.

The big advantage with that is that, it's going to make it a little easier to get any kind of vehicle loaded up onto our trailer. Because if you think of it, when our trailer is up high and we have ramps on the back of that, they're going to be at a steeper angle.If we lower that down, the angle of our ramps also comes down again, making it easier to roll anything up onto that trailer. It's going to have a length or a width of 95 inches from hub face to hub face. So, that's going to be when the hubs are actually on from the outside edge to outside edge. If we go from the spring seats, which are going to be that little welded piece underneath there.

This is an underslung design, so our suspension mounts to the underside of the axle. Measuring from the center of each of those spring seats, it's going to be 79 and a quarter inches wide. The tube itself is three inches in diameter. The bearings, which again are sold separately. We'll need an inner bearing that is 25580 an our bearing of 14125A. It also has a brake flange configuration of a five bolt design, so you'll see that there. This also comes with a five year limited warranty and it is made in the USA, but that's pretty much going to do it for our look at the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam, with 4" drop and E-Z Lube Spindles.

  • How to Measure Ground Clearance for a Trailer with a 7,000 Pound Drop Axle?
    The answer depends on a few different factors and I won't be able to provide an answer specific to your situation without knowing how the leaf spring hangers measure or the tire size, but I can give you a place to start. A typical 7,000 pound leaf spring would measure about 3 1/2 inches from the top of the spring to the center of the eye. The Dexter drop axle, # 8327860, you referenced is 3 inches in diameter so the leaf spring eye will sit roughly 1/2 inch above the center of the axle....

  • Replacement 5200 lb Axle for Sailboat Trailer
    We have an axle that will work for you. The # 8327820 that you've already looked at measures 89 inches from hub face to hub face, and the spring seats are 74 inches apart, measured center to center. The 1 inch additional axle beam length which works out to 1/2 inch per side won't make any difference. However, you would need to replace the existing spring seats using part # TRSS300 and have them welded into the correct 72 inch center to center dimension to fit your needs, but this would...

  • Does Drop Axle Raise or Lower the Trailer
    A drop axle will lower the trailer trailer deck; each of our drop axles are a 4 inch drop, so that is how much it will lower the deck.
