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. 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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (638 Customer Reviews)

Round trailer axle beam measures 86-1/2" from hub face to hub face (when hubs - sold separately - are mounted) and 71-1/2" from spring center to spring center. E-Z Lube spindles make it easy to lubricate bearings (sold separately).

by:

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.



by:

It has been a year. The axle has preformed flawlessly. 5-star because it exactly matched the existing axle for bearing seal part and brake assembly which were moved from the existing lippert 5200# axle to this one. This 6000# axle provides a bit of margin for weight over the existing.

Still working well. Double thumbs up.

1 axle was plastic wrapped and shipped without the rubber protective cover on 1 end. I had to dress the threads to be able to use the axle.

A great replacement axle for my ATV tra iler.

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:

Fit perfect. All parts from my old axle transferred without any problems. I welded the new saddles on the axle without any issues.



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:

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:

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.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

Awesome results. I purchased with new leaf springs and hardware. Very solid. I imagine that most of you struggling failed to research and measure properly. Take responsibility and own your results.



by:

The axles were missing studs that fell out during shipping. Also, no nuts were included for mounting the brakes.



by:

Worked as planned = a good fit. My application required me to weld new mounts to the opposite side of the axle - my application was over sprung and had a 68.5" mounting measurement.



by:

I have had this axle on my trailer for a year now and could not be happier with it. Customer service was great dealing with them. I would highly recommend getting items for your trailer from here.



by:

Fast shipping
This is the 4th large
item I’ve purchased, first 3 went without a problem.
This one came just as fast, but the rubber protection was off the ends so there is surface rust and the lock clip was a little damaged, 2 studs for the backing plate were missing, nothing that could not be fixed or replaced. But this was probably the shipper.
Item to large to worry about shipping back.



by:

The video was great after i had axle in place,would appreciate a little info with axle which way wires face if you need them,how is axle nut held in place.



by:

You guys rock…
I think Dexter or your
shipping team would secure the backing plate mounting studs before shipping.
I received my shipment with a few studs missing otherwise I would definitely recommend these replacement axles.



by:

Great pricing on replacement axles. Saved about 35% over what I was quoted locally. Packaging consits of shrink wrap and rubber caps over the spindles. Shipping speed was exceptional!



by:

Dexter axles fit perfectly, packaged nicely take care not to cut the pre wired axle, came with the spindle nuts and washer overall I got more than I bargained for, good value



by:

Easy peazy, I've purchased two of these. Sure beats driving all over to find the right axle. Arrived timely and installed easily. Big trip next week so they will get the test, but dexter axels have great reliability.

    Yes, that sounds about right. If your 12,000 lb gooseneck trailer has 2 axles then that would mean you need an axle rated for around 6,000 lbs. It would be best to check the tag on your axle or on the front of your trailer to double check too just to be on the safe side. When choosing a replacement axle you also need to check the hub-face and spring-center measurements so that they match what you currently have.

  • Options For Replacing a 4,400 lb Axle
    I may have an option for you, but unfortunately we do not carry any axles with a 4,400 lb capacity. We could potentially replace your axle with a 5,200 lb axle like the Dexter # 8327816 which is 86-1/2" long from, hub face to hub face. We would need to confirm the hub face length and spring seat length of your axle in order to recommend a suitable replacement.
