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 - 8327872

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop and E-Z Lube Spindles.Now, this is going to help us to either replace our bent, broken, or damaged axle on our trailer or help us to fabricate a new trailer for whatever application we might want to use it for. Of course, our axle beam is kind of the basis or the foundation for our suspension on our trailer. It's going to connect everything together and help us to get down the road safely.The main specs with this, it is going to be a 7,000 pound axle, so that's the total weight capacity that this can handle. And it's going to have a length of 94" going from hub face to hub face, or if you want to go from spring center to spring center, that's going to be 78-1/4".

That's going to be the spring center down here, which is an underslung design, meaning it's welded to the bottom of the axle. That's the place where we attach our leaf springs for our suspension, and having that underslung design means that we bring our deck height just a little bit lower, which helps us to load and unload things from our trailer. If you think of your trailer and then the ramp on the back, if it's really high, that ramp is going at a steeper angle. If we drop that down, our ramp comes down and it makes these things easier to roll up on it, so that's the advantage there.You might notice that there's a slight bend to the axle. That's going to accommodate for the weight that we put on top of our trailer to hold everything together and that gives us a zero camber, so whenever our wheels are on the road they're going to be straight and perfectly perpendicular to the road so they're not going to be tilted in or out.

They're going to give us a good straight line pull, a good straight line acceleration, and that also helps to keep our tire treads wearing the same all across the width of that tire.Now as far as the ends of our axle, we'll have a five bolt pattern for our brakes to mount onto. You might notice that there are these caps here. This is just how they come in transit, so that helps to keep everything kind of lubed up and prevent it from rusting over time. You don't need these for the install, it's just a packing material. But here you'll see our E-Z Lube Spindles, so we'll have that grease zerk on the end.

You can do the easing maintenance of putting a grease gun on there, pumping it up full of grease to keep all the bearings and everything inside lubed up and working properly.Of course, whenever you first install this and you put those bearings into your hubs and drums, you want to make sure that you pack those full of grease, and it's best to do it by hand to make sure that there are no voids in there, that we get grease completely into those bearings. But once they're packed and everything's rolling, just to do that periodical maintenance. That grease zerk is going to make things a lot easier. It also comes with a little keeper, the nut, and the D washer to put on the end of the axillary to keep everything in place.Put that back on there and you'll also notice we'll have that 4" drop. Again, that's going to kind of give us the same benefit that I mentioned with the underslung design.

By having that drop, we again lower down that deck plate to have an easier time loading things on and off of our trailer. It's going to have a drop of 4", so that's going from the center of the axle down to that spring seat there.The spindles, the spring seats, and the brake flanges are all welded into place. It's made of a high strength steel construction with that black powder-coat finish. It's made in the USA. As far as our other specs for this, again, weight capacity is 7,000 pounds. Our length from hub face to hub face is 94" or from spring center to spring center, 78-1/4". Spindle drop is 4". The outer tubing diameter is going to be 3". The bearings that you'll need for this, which are sold separately, the inner bearing, you'll need number 25580. For the outer bearing, you'll need 14125A. You can find both of those right here at etrailer.com, along with the hubs, brakes, drums, everything else that you need to get this installed.Again, that brake flange configuration is going to be a five bolt and it does come with a five-year limited warranty and it is made in the USA.But that's going to do it for our look at the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop and E-Z Lube Spindles.

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


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.

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.

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!

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.

  • Recommendation to Replace a Better Built Tilt Trailer Axle
    It took a little researching, but I was able to confirm the 7800026 is another number for # 25580 and 7800017 is another number for # 14125A. So with that being said, the Dexter # 8327872 will definitely be a good replacement for your axle as everything will match what you currently have.

To replace one of the spindles on the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles - 94" Long - 7,000 lbs # 8327872 you would need to have the #42 E-Z Lube 4" Drop Spindle w/ Flange for 5.2K to 7K Trailer Axles - 3" Diameter # TRU39FR welded on by an axle shop as it will need to be perfectly square to the axle and the other spindle.

  • Lowering Boat Trailer Converted to Flat Bed Trailer
    If your trailer already has an over-under kit like # K71-385-00 to put the leaf springs above the axle, then you simply need to remove the kit to put the axle on top of the leaf springs using the factory mounted spring seat on the axle. This will lower the trailer by the diameter of the axle as well as the height of the leaf spring stack. If you need to further lower the trailer, then shorter spring hangers are needed.
