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.


Dexters

Dexters 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.

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.



by:

Had to cut off the mounts and re-weld since it didn't fit my trailer perfectly. However it was the best option for me and the product was just as described.

I called to confirm fitment and availability. I then place the order on line on Wednesday and the axle showed up Friday evening. You can not beet that! Local suppliers where about $75.00 more and I had to go pick it up an hour each way!



by:

it arrived on time and was exactly what i wanted



by:

I build custom trailers. I have been doing so for 50+ years. etrailer has consistently been the second cheapest supplier of axles, springs, hangers, hubs, and etc. that we have been able to locate. When you see the difference in quality that etrailer has you'll be buying the second cheapest too! These guys only offer one kind of quality - the EXCELLENT kind. Of the 8 or so trailers that I have in the road 24/7; 100% of them were made from etrailer components! Highly recommended!

THANKS ETRILER FOR TAKING CARE MY ONLINE ORDER THE DEXTER TRAILER AXLE WAS PERFECT FOR MY NEW INSTALLATION I DONT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE EXTRA LOAD ON MY BOAT TRAILER



by:

Part was a great fit & delivery was on time and properly packaged.
Definitely recommend & I will use this company if future trailer parts are needed.



by:

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!



by:

Axle arrived in perfect condition, was also an exact fit for my Top Hat Trailer.
Your staff was of great help finding my right axle.
I would recommend etrailer to everyone.

  • What Info Is Needed to Pick Out Replacement Axles for Trailer
    I don't have a way to look up your axle based on the number you gave me but I can help you pick out the correct replacement axle based on a few measurements. First thing you need is the axle capacity. That would be listed on the axle on a plate/sticker or you can measure the diameter of the axle to get this as well. Typical Axle Diameters Based on Axle Capacity - 1,000-lb - 2,000-lb Axles: 1-1/2 inch - 1-3/4 inch diameter - 3,500-lb Axles: 2-3/8 inch diameter - 6,000-lb - 7,200-lb Axles:...

  • Is the Weight of the Wheels and Tires Part of the Capacity of the Dexter Axle Beam with 4" Drop
    The axle capacity of something like the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles - 89" Long - 3,500 lbs # 8327812 refers to the amount of weight that it can carry; the weight of the tires, wheel, etc. are not part of the load and actually also carry weight, so they're not considered in the equation when it comes to the axle. This axle is 89" from hub face to hub face and 74" between the centers of the spring seats, which would be the important measurements to match up with...

  • Does Dexter Hub # 8327812-EB Come Assembled Ready to Bolt On
    The Dexter trailer axle part # 8327812-EB does not come fully assembled. You would need to mount the axle and then put the bearings and seal in the hub and then install the hub. I would recommend packing the grease in the hub by hand instead of using the EZ lube fittings.

  • What are Specs of Dexter Trailer Axle # 8327812-I
    I can't find any info on that Dexter trailer axle but the part # 8327812-I is a 3.5k lb trailer axle with a 4 inch drop that is 89 inches from hub face to hub face and 74 inches between spring seats. This is a pretty common configuration but you would need to verify that these dimensions are what you have/need.

  • Replacement Axle for 1973 Avion La Grande Camper

  • Can Spring Seat of Axle be Moved a Couple Inches to Allow Axle to Fit on Trailer
    You can move spring seats by having them cut off and rewelded in the correct location so the Dexter axle part # 8327812-EB that you referenced would work for you as long as you'd be willing to do that step. With this axle being 1 inch shorter in length than what you have now you'd have 1/2 an inch less clearance from the inside of the tire sidewall to the frame of the trailer.

That said, once the wheel and tire are on the measurement is going to be different depending the sizes of those. As a note, I did want to mention that to choose the correct axle size you will want to find the axle with the same spring center to spring center and hub face to hub face dimensions as...

  • What is Height Difference Between 10 Degree Down and 45 Degree Down Torsion Axle

  • Where is Drop Measured From for Trailer Axle With Drop Spindle?
    The Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - 4" Drop - E-Z Lube # 8327812-EB has spindles that drop 4 inches from the center of the trailer axle beam. What this means is that you get an additional 4 inches of clearance from the center of the beam to the spindle.

  • Can the Spring Seats Be Moved on the Dexter 3,500 LB Drop Axle
    The Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles part # 8327812 measures 89" long between each hub face and 74" long between each spring center. It is not offered with 89" between each hub face and 70-1/2" long between each spring center because the spring seats can be moved. The spring seats for this axle can be moved to a minimum of 75" apart and a maximum of 71" apart. Since you only need to go in 1/4" more on either side I would say you are fine to move the spring seats on...

    I would be happy to help, but we do not offer any axles with the the spring seat mounted on the top of the axle. There is a work around to this but I will need to know what size axle you are needing for your trailer, as I am unable to determine the correct axle based on just the trailer model. You will need to measure your axle from hub face to hub face, spring center to spring center, and determine the axle rating of the axle. To find the axle rating you will need to look on the axle...

  • Replacement Axle Option for 92-1/2" Hub Face to Hub Face and 70" From Spring Center to Spring Center

  • Recommended Transmission Cooler For a 2019 Ram 1500 With Pentastar 3.6L Engine
    I recommend installing the Derale Series 8000 Plate-Fin Transmission Cooler # D13503 on your 2019 Ram 1500. This will work with your 3.6L Pentastar engine. It mounts in front of the radiator and connects in line of the transmission fluid return line coming out of your radiator to further cool the transmission. I find plate fin coolers are better at cooling and this being one of our largest coolers will help keep your transmission as cool as possible.

This can cause premature wear and isn't recommended. It will be better to either have a local trailer supply store order an axle to your specifications, or order the # 8327812-EB with qty.2 of the 2-3/8" Axle Spring Seat # TRSS238.
