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.

Hub Face and Spring Center Measurements on Standard Trailer Axle

Another helpful measurement to have is the flange-to-flange (C) length, which is measured from the outside of one brake flange to the outside of the one opposite. This length may be easy to obtain if you are replacing an axle, but it's important to note that this measurement is not the preferred method for determining which axle will best fit your trailer.

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.

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"

Video Transcript for Dexter Trailer Axles 35545I-EZ-89 Review

Today we're going to review part number 35545I-EZ-89. This is the Dexter Trailer Axle with the Idler Hubs. The bolt pattern is a 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. It's an easy lube design and has a 3500 pound weight capacity. Now this Axle being will act as part of your trailer suspension system. It is used to replace an axle on your trailer and it's made of a high strength steel construction. Now this is a under slung design. If you can see the spring seats on each end are welded to the under side of an axle for mounting your lease springs to. The under slung design will give you a low ride height which makes it easier to load and unload your trailer. Now you might notice in the very center here, there's a bend near the center of the axle, this is what ensures the proper camber angle.

Basically each axle manufacture to create a certain camber angle. This will ensure that the angle of the wheels is correct for your towing needs. Each axle is made so that your trailer's tires will run along the pavement evenly with contact across the whoIe width of the thread. The result is an excellent straight line acceleration for steady in line tracking. Having the center of the axle a bit higher and the sides bent lower allows the axle to give just enough when you put a load on your trailer. That load would push down on that and even that out and give you the correct contact patch of your tires. Now this does include the straight easy lube spindles on each end if you can see here and it also includes the spindle knot, the D washer and the knot retainer.

There is no drop to these spindles. At the very end, this is a easy lube design, so there's an easy lube zerk fitting, it's a grease zerk fitting that you attach a grease gun to and that would lube the bearings that are installed on here. Now the spring seats right here and the spindles and these break mounting flanges are all welded on. Now this part does come with these cast iron idler hubs which are sturdy and durable. Now the idler hubs do not have breaks so you won't be using these break mounting flanges, those would be used . those in the wiring that's included here would be used if you're wanted to eventually down the road upgrade to putting electric breaks on the axle itself. This part number actually just comes with the idler hubs. Now the bearings, as you see here, the inner and outer bearings are all included.

The races are already pre-installed into the idler hubs themselves, the grease seals, the grease caps and these are the easy lube that have the rubber plug that comes up so you can access the zerk fitting, they are all included. Comes with the 10 1/2 inch log knots and this marine grade wheel bearing grease is also included. Now the capacity on this is, its weight capacity is 3500 pounds. There are some measurements on this axle with . there's multiple ways you can measure the length of an axle beam but the hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center lengths are your most accurate. Hub face would be when you put these idler hubs on and connect them all down. If you'd measure from the length of ...

measure from the base of 1 wheel stud to the base of the wheel stud on the other side, that would give you the hub face to hub face measurement and I'll do that just right now. I don't have the hubs on but just to give you an idea of the length once they would be installed. it's going to give you 89 inches, would be your hub face to hub face length. Now the other most accurate measurement would be the spring center to spring center length and that's basically right here. The approximate width of your trailer is measured from the center of 1 spring seat on 1 side to the center of the spring seat on the other side. Again if we just run center spring seat to center here, it's 74 inches. Now there's also another measurement which is the break mounting flange to the break mounting flange. Now that is not as accurate as the first 2 I mentioned to you but I'll still give it to you. It's good to use if you're replacing an axle you have on there. It's going to be 82 5/8 inches. Now on these idler hubs, these are a 5 log 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern hub. They do come with the half inch log knots that bolt them onto and they will use a wheel size anywhere from 13 inches on up to 17 1/2 inches. Now the 2 big outer diameter on this axle is 2 3/8 inches. The spindle size is 1 1/16 inches. The break flange configuration, if you go to use this down the road and want to put electric breaks on it is a 4 bolt configuration. And that should do it for the review on part number 35545I-EZ-89. The Dexter Trailer Axle with the Idler Hubs with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. It's an easy lube design and a 3500 pound weigh capacity. .

The axle I ordered was successfully installed yesterday. One issue I had was with the spring seats. My spring centers are 72 1/2. Knowing that I ordered the Spring Seats TRSS238. I cut off the seats that came with the axle as I knew I had to do but when I went to install the new seats I found the cutout diameter was too large for the axle. For that reason I did not use the seats. Fortunately I did a neat job of cutting off the original seats so I welded those at the location I needed. They worked fine and fit very well. It would have been a problem if I did not get the seats off the axle as neat clean as I did. Other that that issue the axle arrived in 5 days through standard shipping and hopefully will work for years to come. 273641

God the product in two days from the order day. It came in perfect shape and ordering the additional mounting brackets was very easy. Item is sturdy and was quite easy to install, especially using the helpful instruction video link (there is one missing step in the video, though. It does not show the mounting of the bushing that fits next to the inner bearing on the hub, but it was still pretty easy to figure out). Great purchase and the whole axle swap took less than 30 minutes! 228944

  • The final width (with tires) of the Dexter Trailer Axle, # 35545I-EZ-89, will depend on the wheel and tire size you intend to use. You would simply add the width of one tire (assuming your wheels have a zero offset) to the 89 inch hub face dimension of this axle to find the total width. For example, if you have 6 inch wide tires, then you would add 6 inches to 89 which gives you a total width of 95 inches.

You will want to measure hub-face-to-hub-face and spring-center-to-spring-center length. If you are looking for an EZ-Lube axle that has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt...

  • Recommendation for How to Remove a Bent Spindle from Axle on Utility Trailer
  • Removing a damaged spindle is the easy part - it can be cut off with a torch or saw. But welding on a new one is another matter and requires the new spindle be welded exactly straight. It is actually easier to replace the entire axle with a new one that has good spindles on both ends. This may even be less costly than having a new spindle welded on by a qualified welder. It will also ensure that both spindles will have the same working lifespan, which would not be the case if only one is...

  • Can Square Trailer Axle Be Replaced with Round Axle
  • Yes, you can replace a square axle with a round beam axle so long as it is rated appropriately. You will need a new u-bolt kit for the round 2K axle, part # APUBR-10. We offer beam axles rated up to 3500-lbs and also axle-less suspension kits from Timbren that bolt right on to the trailer frame. You can see all 2K axle kits by clicking on the link provided. Some of these come with hubs while others do not. For instance Timbren kit # A20RS545 includes the bolt-on suspension units (they...

  • Replacement Trailer Spindles to Allow Installation of Different Hubs
  • All of the trailer spindles we sell are weld-on types, including those with brake flanges like Redline # R20384EZ that fits 1.75-inch diameter axles. The largest diameter spindle we sell is for a 2-1/4-inch axle beam, part # R50342EZ; this can be seen on the link provided. This spindle is for a 5200-lb axle and it has a 5-bolt brake mounting flange. It is almost surely going to be easier and less expensive for you to replace your axles than to have a professional welder install new spindles...

  • Determining the Correct Replacement Axle Assembly for Haul Master Trailer
  • In order to recommend an axle assembly for you, I'll need some more information. First, you will need to ensure that the existing wheels and tires you are using are rated for the extra weight. Do you need a brake or an idler axle? Keep in mind that different states have different thresholds at which trailer brakes are required. It is possible that with the 2K axle, you were under that threshold, but going up to a 3500 lb axle might place you above that threshold where brakes are required....

  • Replacement Axle and Leaf Springs for 1970s Shoreline Single Axle Boat Trailer
  • Since your axle capacity is unknown - and since it is also rust damaged - you're probably on the right track in thinking of replacing it. We offer both axle beams by themselves and in kits that also include hubs, bearings, races etc. Please see the linked page. We also offer axle-less suspension systems from Timbren, such as their 3500-lb-rated # ASR3500S05. These unique systems mount directly to your trailer frame - no axle needed - and they can save you lots of install time, potentially...

  • Replacing Hubs on 1960's Olympian Boat Trailer
  • To find a replacement hub for your 1960's boat trailer you will need to match a few characteristics from your current set up: bearing numbers, seal number, wheel bolt pattern and axle weight rating. While it may be possible to match up these features to find a new hub (using the link provided), given the age of the trailer you may be better off simply replacing your entire axle assembly with a complete kit that includes the axle, hubs, bearings and seals. This will ensure all components...

  • Looking for Replacement Axle for Road King Boat Trailer
  • We don't carry that particular item, but it sounds like you have a 3500 lb axle. We carry some common sized trailer axles, but to determine if any of them would work for you I'll need the following information: -Axle hub face to hub face dimension (see diagram) -Axle spring center to spring center distance (see diagram) -Inner wheel bearing reference number -Outer wheel bearing reference number The standard axles we offer have a 89 inch hub face and a 74 inch spring center dimension....

  • Tips for Selecting Axles for a Home Made Boat Trailer
  • The first thing you will want to consider is the length of the trailer. A 23 foot long boat would need a longer trailer than 25 foot. You have to consider turning radius and space at the tongue for things like a winch, bow stop, and a jack as well, especially for a boat this size. A 23 foot long boat is decent in length so you might actually want to consider tandem axles instead of a single axle. Boats are heaver at the rear so a lot of the weight would be on that one axle. Two axles...

  • How to Measure for a Replacement Trailer Axle
  • To determine the axle size you will need there are some measurements needed. First, if you are replacing the axle then you can measure the one you have. Measure from the center of one spring seat to the center of the other spring seat. Then measure from hub face to hub face. I included a picture showing where to measure. In the picture the spring seat measurement is 74 inches and the hub face measurement is 89 inches. This is just an example. If the trailer does not have an axle then...

  • How Long Is a 3500-lb Axle for a 5 x 10-Foot Utility Trailer
  • All of the 3500-lb-rated trailer axles that we offer are 89-inches in length from hub face to hub face and have spring seats at a 74-inch spacing. Your 3500-lb axle may be different so you'll want to measure your hub face and spring seat dimensions. All such axles are shown on the link provided for you. We offer kits with hubs or without, with electric brakes or without and even axle-less suspensions like the Timbren # ASR3500S04. The unique suspension systems do not require an axle beam...

  • Components Needed To Build Tandem-Axle Lawn Mower Trailer
  • You did not say what the expected weight is for the trailer and the lawn mowers with other items like trimmers, gas cans, etc, we can only estimate the size axles, and springs you would need. The highest capacity axles we offer are for 3,500 lbs and measure 89 inches hub face to hub face. That is a bit longer than the 7 ft you mentioned you wanted. You did not say if you planned on adding brakes to the trailer. If your loaded trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the vehicle you are...

  • Axle Replacement Recommendation for a Trailer with Destroyed Spindles
  • You weren't kidding about your bearings being shot. Looks like your spindle hasn't seen any grease for a while which is why the bearings went out. Judging by the amount of rust on the spindle I think your best option would be to replace the axle. To pick out an axle you will need the following information: Bolt pattern of the wheel (see link to determine this) Axle rating, should be listed on the plate near the coupler Hub face to hub face dimension Spring seat to spring seat dimension...

  • Trailer Axle, Springs, U-Bolt Kit, and Hanger Kit Recommendation for a 3,500 lb Utility Trailer
  • First let's start with the axle. For a 3,500 lb axle we offer the part # 35545I-EZ-89. This comes with idler hubs with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. From hub face to face this axle measures 89 inches and between the two spring seats measures 74 inches. Your trailer will have to be compatible with both dimensions. For a U-bolt kit to mount the axles to leaf springs you would want the part # APUBR-1. For leaf springs you would want the # SP-212275. For a hanger kit you would want part...

  • Replacement Trailer Idler Hub That Uses L68149 Inner and Outer Bearings and 5-on-4-1/2 Bolt Pattern
  • We do offer a range of replacement trailer hub assemblies that use the L68149 bearing as their inner bearing and that have the 5-on-4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. All can be seen on the link at right. However, none of these 16 hubs uses that same bearing as its outer bearing - all use an L44649 outer bearing. You may find it easier to replace the entire axle and hubs with new and readily available items. We do offer axles alone, axles with complete hub/bearings kits and axle-less suspension...

  • Replacement 3500lb Axle for 1992 Classic Bass Boat Trailer
  • I'm afraid you're going to need a custom axle. Many boat trailers use what's called a V-camber axle, where the center of the axle is bent into a V shape, in order for the keel of the boat to pass over it. If that's the type of axle you currently have, that's the type of replacement you'll need to get. If your axle is more or less straight, without a v-shaped bend in it, we do not offer an axle with the spring seats in the correct place (as you've seen). My first thought was that you...

  • 5-on-4-1/2-Bolt Pattern Hub for Use on Redline 2-1/4-Inch Spindle # R56042
  • Selection of a compatible hub for use on the Redline Spindles # R50642 requires matching up the bearing set that fits this spindle (25580 inner bearing and LM67048 outer bearing) to the bearings in the hub. We do offer a number of hub kits that use this same bearing set and all can be seen on the link at right. However, none of these has a 3500-lb capacity and none has the required 5-on-4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. All of these hubs use at least 6 lugs. You may find it easier to select...

  • Recommended Replacement 3,500 Lb Axles With Electric Brakes For 2003 Sno Pro Trailer
  • We do offer 3,500 lb axles that may work for your Sno Pro trailer. The axles we offer are not torsion axles but may serve your purpose well. I recommend the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes, part # 35545E-ST-EZ-89. These 3,500 lb axles have the electric brake and hubs installed and also feature the EZ-Lube spindle which makes lubrication easy. The axles have a hub-face-to-hub-face measurement of 89 inches and spring-center-to-spring-center length of 74 inches. I have attached a...
