Trailer axle beam measures 89" from hub face to hub face (when hubs - sold separately - are mounted) and 74" from spring center to spring center. EZ-Lube spindles make it easy to lubricate bearings (sold separately).
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.
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 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.

Today we're going to review part number T3584F-EZ-8974. This is the Dexter Trailer Axle with the EZ Lube spindles and a 3500 pound weight capacity. Now this axle beam will act as part of your trailer suspension system. This will be used to replace an axle on your trailer. It is made of a high strained steel construction. Now also, axles are built with a predetermined bend in the tube that will compensate for the expected deflection under load.
So if you look at this axle actually, in the very middle, I got it sitting in it's position, it will raise up in the middle, and there's actually room underneath there. So it has that predetermined bend, and basically that bend in the axle will help create a 0 camber angle for even road to tread contact across the width of your trailer's tires. This is best for straight line acceleration and steady controlled towing. Now this axle is also a high strained steel construction. It is an under slung design. Basically, the spring seats, the one right here, you can see that seat right here.
And then there's one on this end. They are welded to the underside of the axle for mounting your leash springs too. Now the leash springs we do sell separately. Basically, the under slung design will make a low ride height, which makes it easier to load, and unload your trailer. Now this axle has the straight EZ Lube spindles. There's no drop to it.
They have the built in grease zerk fittings on each end. Basically that will allow you to lubricate the bearings by putting a grease spin on that zerk fitting. The spindle nut, the nut retainer, and de-washer come also with this axle. The spring seats, the brake flanges, the four bolt break flanges, and the spindles are all welded on. The weight capacity on this is 3500 pounds. 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 your most accurate.
The hub face will refer to the length of the axle when it's measured from the base of one wheel stud to the base of the wheel stud on the opposite side of the axle. So your hubs would have to mounted and you then you would measure from the base of the one wheel stud on your hub to the base of the other side. Now the spring center is the approximate width of your trailer. It's measured from the center of the spring seat on one side, to the center of the spring seat on the other side. So just to give you an idea on this axle, we'll first do the hub face to hub face measurement. Now I don't have the hubs on here but I'm going to give you a rough idea where they will be. So the hub face to hub face length for this axle would be 89 inches. Now the spring center to spring center length. We'll measure from the center to the center, is going to be 74 inches. Now there is a flange to flange length. Which is basically the brake flange to brake flange length. That's not as arcurate as the other ones. But it can be used if you're replacing an axle on your trailer. In this case it's 82 5/8 inches flange to flange length. Now the tubing outer diameter on this is 2 3/8 inches diameter, spindle size is 1 1/16 and again the brake flange is a four bolt design. Now one other note I wanted to mention to you, if you'll notice this sticker right over here, this white sticker. This is the manufacturer sticker. Now this will always face the rear of the trailer. So this axle when it's positioned, this will face the rear. So this would be the left side of the trailer, this would be the right side of the trailer. The reason I mention that is you'll notice there's two loops of wire, one here, one on that side. So the wiring on a trailer will usually come down this left side and you'll tie it into that wire there. So on the left side it will connect to the electric brakes and the wiring on the trailer and that wire runs through the axle and over here on the right side, the wiring will just connect to the brakes. That should do it for the review on part number T3584F-EZ-8974 the Dexter Trailer Axle with the EZ Lube Spindle and a 3500 pound weight capacity. .

First things first you can't beat the helpful people at etrailer. The axle I ordered was exactly what I needed. It was delivered to my door in less than 24hrs. I was amazed!!!! I installed it on my trailer that evening and it bolted right up. I watched the helpful videos on etrailers web site which deserve an A++. The follow up by George was great. The price was best around. I guess I just can't say enough good things about my experience. Thank You etrailer I will be letting all my friends know about my experience. With service like I received you should be in business a long time. 234490

The axle fit like a glove, It took about an hour and half by the time I put the tools away I only had two jack stands make sure you have four or cinder blocks will work also and a new bearing and U bolt kit. I was going thru one used tire a week because the axle spindle was bent now this trailer is riding smooth!. They shipped the axle right away, very happy with the product and service from etrailer. 283587

The axles I needed were easy to order, great descriptions etc. I realize the hub's and brake drum were shipping seperate and required assembly but that's minor, everything was there. My second order had some minor issues with availability but I talked to Sandy J and she was a pleasure to work with. My corrected order came in 3 dsys. Very pleased thus with e trailer and will be ordering parts there again. 276868
Depending on who you ask, the axle either arrived right on schedule or ahead of schedule! It was exactly what Dexter and etrailer said it would be. Installed it on a 6' X 10' utility trailer we use to pickup/deliver riding lawnmowers and other outdoor equipment at our business I have made other purchases from etrailer, always with the same results - very satisfying! 161463

Needed a new 3500 pound axle for a 30 year old utility trailer, ordered a new one plus the u bolt kit, items were shipped the next day and received 3 days later. Axle was a top quality Dexter axle. Both items were well packed for their trip. I will most certainly order all of my trailer parts from these folks, Great service, great parts and great follow up. 292630

I'm very pleased with all of my purchases from eTrailer. Everything has seemed to be of excellent quality and value. The wiring kits and directions were very well thought out and one of the projects I completed would not have been possible had it not been for the excellent videos on the website.

axle looks great I am going to like the EZ lube spindles it will be a while before I can fix it but it looks good thank you EZ trailer for your help 342941
Happy with this item, but packaging was lacking. Suggest they do a better job of protecting the ends than just cardboard and shrink wrap. 366680
