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.


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.

We install these axles on our trailers for years and they have worked well without any problems.




by:

I have ordered from your company several times and this is the first time you shipped by the post office, everything has been UPS, if this is the way you are going to ship something this long and heavy through the post office, I will have to order form some other company next time I need something. I have dealt serval times ordering fishing rods and they were shipped by the post office and every time they came in damaged in some way so I will have to really give it a lot of consideration on ordering from your company again. Very dissapointed. I guess your claim on fast shipping may be true, but fast delivery is a joke.

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!

Springs seats were missing

We will have this taken care of for you. I will have our customer service team reach out.

I am happy with the final result. The first act we ordered was a fiasco. UPS says that USPS Employee signed for it but they don't except oversize packages and mine was 72" long. We hope that ups retired the first one to you because we would like a credit for it Thank you for your extra effort on our behalf.

Axle worked perfectly with all the other components i bought with it.

EVERYTHING IS ON I HAVERNT USED ON A TRIP YET




by:

Bought this for my boat trailer. Great looking axle took all the measurements and it looked like it would fit. When I put my hubs on it they were about one inch short. So being short there are no threads to tighten the nut against the bearing. So now I need to order there hubs. This should be mentioned when you order the axle. Or give the hub over all length.


Comments
The axel is working great with no problems.
Richard W - 11/04/2017


by:

1 yr later, axle and bearing set is working well.
I decided to replace the axle under my trailer rather than the whole trailer.
I like the pre-bend in the tube for keeping tires balanced under load as well as the basic finish rather than bare steel.
Purchase price made it even better after shopping around a bit.


Comments
Doing well, as you know, the axle gets used only when the trailer does so it sits a lot. But I do enjoy that it has the pre bend to it so when loaded up it tracks true and the tire wear is even.
Scott - 01/30/2018


by:

Axle bolted right in place and has been performing flawlessly for a year now. Great product!!!




by:

Shipped fast. Product seems strong. I do have a problem (not etrailer's fault), the axle I replaced didn't have a raised leave spring mount as this one does. That extra inch put my tires into the fenders (literally) :( will have to cut fenders off and probably end up getting another axle maybe one longer so I can have boat ride between fenders instead of over them.




by:

Received the axle quickly, perfect fit. Have bought from etrailer many times and will continue to do so

  • Availability of Complete Trailer Suspension Rebuild Kit
    We do not offer a complete kit with all of the components you will need but you can certainly select the components to allow you to rebuild your trailer's suspension. We always suggest that all the components in the suspension system be changed out at the same time. I have linked you to our main page for trailer axles; you can use the filters at the left-hand side of the page to narrow the products down to what you need. I provided also links to our pages for suspension components (where...

  • Trailer Axle Availability with 58 inch Spring Center Dimension
    We have a 2,000 lb axle that has an overall length of 72 inches from hub face to hub face and has a spring center dimension of 58 inches like you need, part # T20BTR-EZ-7258. Check out the review video I attached for more info. We don't have a 3,500 lb axle that has those dimensions. 3,500 lbs is quite a bit of capacity for a 5 by 8 trailer, you might be able to get by with the 2k axle part # T20BTR-EZ-7258.

  • Axle Capacity of 1-1/2 Inch Square Axle.
    The only way to know for sure the capacity of your axle is based on the information from the manufacturer when the axle is new. Typically, 1-1/2 inch square axels have a capacity somewhere between 1,000 - 2,000 pounds. Sometimes the spindle and hub can also help point us in the direction of finding axle capacity, but even then it is still an approximation since it is impossible to tell if they are the same size as what came on the axle.

  • Straight Trailer Axles for a 2 Horse Trailer with 3,600 Pounds Gross Trailer Weight
    With the trailer weighing 1,600 pounds and 2 horses at 1,000 pounds each that would total 3,600 pounds which is over the capacity of both a single 2,200 pound axle and a single 3,500 pound axle. But if you have 2 axles then using 2 of the 2,200 pound axles, # T20BTR-EZ-7258, will be more than enough capacity. I have linked a video review of this axle for you.

    The Dexter Trailer Idler Axle Beam with EZ-Lube Spindles # T20BTR-EZ-7258 should work great for your application!

  • Can Replacement Trailer Axle with Smaller Diameter be Used on a Boat Trailer
    If the axle is bent up in the middle then that is normal. Trailer axles have a bow in them so that when weight is placed on the trailer it flattens out. That is part of what gives an axle its capacity. If there is not enough weight on the axle then the tires will remain toe in at the bottoms and you will get tread wear just on the outsides of the tread. If the axle is bent in some other way then replacing the axle is a good idea. The diameter difference means that you would likely have...

This is pretty common practice as manufactures just place the spring seats in a common spot but the customers can move them as needed. That said, you will likely destroy the old ones getting them off so I also recommend getting the Axle Spring Seat part # TRSS175 (2).
