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.

Axles where great customer service was also great helping make sure I got the correct axle for my hubs and bearings. Only thing that would be nice is if they had an option to ship the spring pad mounts loose because I had to cut them off and re-weld them in the correct location for my trailer.

The axle came in 2 days. The axle was exactly the same as my old one. I put it in this afternoon and it’s ready to use for tomorrow. No complaints whatsoever! Actually I never usually review anything but this experience was exceptional.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle in Trailer Axles


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.


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

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.

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


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.

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.

So far it is holding up well and working as anticipated.

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 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!

Mission accompolished just a few minutes ago. The attached (3) images attached tell the story. Any customer relocating spring seats should measure closely before welding new seats in place to fit their trailer needs. Again your technical assistance and quick order leave me a very very satisfied customer.. [Thumbs up]

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!...

  • Distance Between Drop Spindles of Dexter Axle # 8327860
    I checked with Dexter and the distance between the drop spindles of the Dexter Axle # 8327860 that you referenced is 82.34 inches. The overall distance from hub face to hub face (when hubs are installed) will be 95 inches and the distance between the spring seats (where the axle attaches to the suspension) is 79-1/4 inches. The spindle drop is 4 inches and the axle has a 7,000 lb capacity.

    We have an axle that will work for you.

The 1 inch additional axle beam length which works out to 1/2 inch per side won't make any difference.

  • 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....
