Note: The Timbren Axle-Less suspension system may require additional support on your trailer. If your trailer does not have a crossmember above the spot where you want to install the Timbren system, you may need to reinforce the frame. You can accomplish this three ways. First, you can retrofit the trailer with a crossmember. Second, you can build out the trailer frame. Third, you can use standard, 2-inch steel tubing to connect the 2 Timbren suspensions together using the built-in square hole on each unit.


Ground Clearance

Ride on rubber with Timbren's Axle-Less trailer suspension system. This one-of-a-kind suspension consists of two separate units, each containing rugged steel arms and two strong, hollow rubber springs. Overall, the system safely and effectively absorbs road shock, minimizes trailer bounce and rattle - regardless of load size - and helps to protect your trailer's components and cargo. Built-in camber and toe-in keep your trailer tracking straight to minimize tire wear. Integrated hangers attach to your trailer's frame. And 2-inch holes make it easy to reinforce your trailer's frame by adding standard, 2-inch-square steel tubing (if needed).


The Axle-Less independent suspension system replaces your trailer's existing leaf spring suspension and can eliminate the need for an axle. The independent action of the suspension reduces roll when your trailer is cornering and allows you to maximize ground clearance and minimize deck height. Your trailer can have the same side-to-side clearance as your tow vehicle. And the low deck height makes it easy to load cargo from either the rear or the side.


Because you're riding on rubber, your trailer will ride smoothly and comfortably, whether you're navigating rocky terrain or highway asphalt.


Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Parts

Components

  1. The AEON progressive-rate main spring supports the weight of your trailer and cargo and easily absorbs road shock. It is constructed of heavy-duty, hollow rubber.
  2. The rebound spring minimizes trailer bounce, rattle and bottoming out. It keeps the suspension under constant tension and ensures that the main spring compresses and expands in a controlled fashion. And it delivers a smooth, stable ride - regardless of how much cargo is on the trailer.
  3. The trailing arm and integrated hanger attach the suspension to the side and bottom of the trailer frame.
  4. The control arm carries the spindle and the hub. It pivots on strong, long-lasting urethane bushings that never require lubrication.
  5. The EZ lube spindle is simple to grease. If damaged, it can be removed and replaced, saving you both time and money.
  6. The hub is not included with this model.
  7. The built-in square hole accepts standard 2-inch tubing. If there is no crossmember above the suspension, you can easily add support to your trailer's frame by inserting 2-inch steel tubing through the hole on each suspension unit and then bolting the tubing into place.

Timbren Axle-Less Suspension versus Leaf Springs

Leaf Spring Example

The Axle-Less suspension's progressive spring is a definitive upgrade over leaf springs. Although leaf springs deliver a stable ride when supporting a load, a trailer with leaf springs will bounce and rattle when it's empty or supporting a light or off-center load. On the other hand, your trailer can bottom out on bumpy roads if the load is too heavy. The AEON progressive-rate springs of the Axle-Less suspension always deliver the same reliable performance, no matter the load size. As more weight is added to the trailer, the springs compress and become stiffer, offering more support for heavy loads. And because they rebound more slowly than leaf springs, the AEON springs do a better job of absorbing road shock, thereby keeping your trailer from bouncing and rattling when you're carrying a light load. So with this versatile system you will enjoy a smooth ride whether you're towing an empty trailer or a hefty load.


Unlike leaf springs, Timbren's Axle-Less suspension units operate independently of one another. Each spring activates only when needed. This reduces roll and delivers top-notch performance, even when you're hauling off-center loads. When your trailer with leaf springs takes a turn, one side of the suspension compresses and takes on more weight, and the other side becomes looser and bounces. This causes rattle and can make the trailer lean to one side. But when your trailer with the Axle-Less suspension takes a turn, one side compresses and becomes more rigid to absorb the weight, and the other side expands to normal height to help steady the load and minimize bounce and rattle. The load stays better balanced, even if it is off-center.


Timbren Axle-Less Suspension versus Torsion Axles

Torsion Axle Example

Timbren's Axle-Less trailer suspension system is a great alternative to torsion axles. While both systems allow either side of the trailer's suspension to operate independently, only Axle-Less suspensions are actually separate units. Torsion axles still require a bar that spans the bottom of your trailer, whereas Timbren's system can eliminate the need for a thru axle - giving you the same amount of ground clearance from the front of your trailer to the rear. It also allows Axle-Less suspensions to fit any trailer width - unlike torsion axles, which have to be fitted to an exact frame width.


Axle-Less suspensions operate in a smoother, less stressful manner than torsion axles. Torsion axles use a twisting motion, where the bar inside the axle tube rolls against rubber cords or a rubber wall to create compression and resistance. The up-and-down motion of the main spring and the side-to-side motion of the rebound spring in Timbren's Axle-Less suspension work together to provide smooth, consistent compression - with no twisting - that results in a better ride and less stress on the suspension's components.


Installing the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension

Whether you are building a trailer or retrofitting your existing trailer with the Axle-Less system, you must make certain that the trailer's frame is both perfectly square and sturdy enough to support a heavy load without the aid of a thru axle.


Install Option 1

There are three ways to install the Axle-Less suspension. The easiest method, which is recommended if you are replacing axles on your trailer, is to install a piece of 2-inch-square tubing (sold separately - available at most weld shops) through the integrated hole in the Axle-Less suspension. Then all you need to do is bolt the suspension to the side of the trailer's frame with three bolts (not included).


Install Option 2

The second option for installation is to fabricate an inboard extension plate that attaches the trailer's frame to the Axle-Less suspension.


Install Option 3

The third method of installation is to bolt the Axle-Less suspension's hanger to the trailer's frame and to an existing crossmember that is in the area where you want to install the suspension.


With both the second and third options, you must use three bolts to attach the suspension to the side of the frame. And you also have to use two or three bolts to attach the suspension to the bottom of the frame extension, or crossmember. Both the second and third methods of installation will eliminate the need for a thru axle and provide the most clearance.


Measuring Diagram

Timbren's Axle-Less suspension units should be installed directly across from one another. Before mounting the units, measure back from the coupler and mark the frame to make sure that the two distance measurements (A and B) are within 1/8 inch of each other. Then you can drill holes through the frame and attach the hangers with Grade-5, half-inch bolts (not included).

I used this on my sailboat trailer to lower the height on the boat. A traditional drop axle would interfere with the fin keel. I used the box tube to connect the two units together for added strength and protection. The tube is well ahead of the keel and where the drop axle would have been. I'm also thrilled to have the Timbren elastomer shocks which give a super smooth ride and are immune to corrosion of the salt environment. Multi-leaf springs just don't last when immersed in the ocean, no matter how hard you try to flush them.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


The trailer rides great down the road and no more worries about saltwater and rusty leaf springs. Not a cheap option but I’m very happy with the setup. When installing, just be sure to measure accurately and have sharp drill bits. A drill press type of guide also helps ensure correct drilling angles. The first picture is of a mounting gusset a local welding shop made. One is needed for each side and necessary to provide needed mounting strength-at least on my trailer frame. Pics 2 and 3 show the mounted suspension on one side of the trailer. Pic 4 shows the suspension on one side of the trailer with the axle attached and a separately purchased disc brake assembly mounted on it. Finally, pic 5 shows a 2” box channel between both suspension assemblies. Independent suspensions would have been nice, but I wanted to ensure trailer rigidity was maintained. So, after one year, so far, so good. It’s all smooth sailing down the highway.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


They have more pros than cons, but the second set I bought broke the flat plate that holds the spindle at about 8 months. The steel quality seemed less than I would expect since it basically peeled it back like a pop can as you can see in the pictures. Otherwise I like the clearance and ride. They last 2-3 years where the torsion axles I replaced would wear out in 4 months after driving down rough gravel roads. There is a grade zerk on the underside which I didn't realize until I bought the second set. That would have helped the first set last longer had I known about it.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


I used these axles in a different way than most would. I needed a trailer that was small, could handle tight switch-backs, carry 600 lbs and be light. I had this idea and as a retired design engineer I saw a great possibility in this axle. I have made four of these trailers now, one as a camp trailer, 2 for trail work for State Parks and one as a utility trailer.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


Very exicited about these axels, I have been eyeing these for over a year. (Excellent service from etrailer, they had my parts to me in 1 day from the time of placing the order.) These axles seem to be well made and fit nicely with the Dexter hub and drum assembly and the 12" electric brake kit. I installed this all on a M1101/M1102 trailer frame after removing the factory axel assembly. I have not ran these on the road or off as of yet but will give another review at that time. The fit and finish are great and the packaging was good, a little banged up from shipping (missing 1 washer)

I am not a mechanic so Brandi was real helpful. Had to get some professional help to remove the old suspension and install the new suspension. The only drawback we ran into was the spindle did not extend out far enough to mount the tires in the normal way. We had to put the tires on backwards. It all worked out beautifully. Towed the trailer for over 1700 miles without any problems. Brandi was delightful to talk with and very patient with me. Her help was most appreciated. Sorry, I didn't take any pictures.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


Purchased 2 sets of the Timbren 1200 Axle-less systems for upgrading the suspension on an older 30' ft glider trailer. Single axle with small (13") tires made towing tough due to porpoising, dragging on drive entrances do to poor flotation; also German made and metric, no repair parts. GVW 2000 lbs equated to bouncy ride. Dual sets now allow the trailer to ride over bumps and sharp inclines easily, smoothly, little bounce on country roads; porpoising is history. My glider now rides securely, safely, quietly. Install time 4 1/2 hours (includes head-scratching). Results are outstanding, units are totally solid. Recommend the square tube interconnect, easy and quick - trailer frame was on the light side, so a precautionary fix. Clean look underneath. Ordered 5 wheels w/tires, very nice. Helpful neighbor so impressed he ordered a HD single set for his new DIY snowmobile trailer. Customer satisfaction 100%, from phone order, online support, product information, immediate shipping, install instructions, followup... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


Comments
I have just a little more to add regarding my purchase: Two sets, of the Timbren Axle-less assemblies, 1200 lb, and 5 wheels. I placed the order via phone, and whoever was on-call that day provided great answers and recommendations regarding the units, wheels and tires. At 31 feet, the trailer originally exhibited amplified porpoising on any bumps or dips in the road. Also bouncing and occasional sideways tipping due to the single axle. It made a lot of noise on my mountain community washboards. I speculated that the Timbren units would solve most, if not all of these problems and they have. Installation on my older 31 ft European ie, metric and no longer manufactured glider trailer was a mere 4.5 hours from removal of the old single axle to setting the trailer back down on its new assemblies. Instructions are complete, precise, useful and helpful. Appreciated. Little to comment on as installation was all straight-forward. I would like to describe the maiden voyage to the airport and back, but there is nothing to tell, other than it towed beautifully proper alignment instructions, and all that I viewed from the rear view mirror looked like a magic carpet ride. It rides over washboards and pot holes like a marathon hurdler, the 4-wheel independent suspension is great. Packaging: the shipping boxes all arrived in good condition, but the cardboard component boxes inside them... not so much. Most were ripped and open due to heavy components lightly surrounded with brown packing paper, just token amounts. Parts: all was accounted for minus a pair of spindle axle washers for one set, easily replaced at the local farm and ranch supply. No squawk, just an fyi. I am very pleased with your product and support, and was happy to leave a 5-star review with photos. The upgraded suspension was also a topic this past weekend at the glider port by those who regularly trailer their ships to various soaring events, some as far as a thousand miles away. My compliments to eTrailers, hope you can use my info,

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


Pleased with ETRAILER, will order here again. Not as happy with the torsion axle setup. 2 inch square opening for tying both axles together with your own 2" square tubing are not shaped to match 2x2x1/8 tubing. Grinding and welding of tubing required to make it fit. Also found the overslung stub axle left the end of the pivot arm without much ground clearance though the unit was intended and spec'd for atv tire off road use. A pivot arm with mounting pads top and bottom would be better and allow the user to choose high or low clearance use. I found the units were perfectly suited to offroad use once I fabricated new mounting pads and welded them to the bottom of the arms.


Comments
After a year of off road use, I couldnt be happier. My trailer rides smooth loaded or unloaded. No of that bunny hopp with leaf springs or rigid mount axles. The small rebound control snubber works perfectly! I modified my components for high clearance but the concept is sound, they work well. Great job Timbren!

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


I installed these on my single axle travel trailer to replace the axle and leaf springs. Weight savings was a wash with the required steel tube for added stability. I installed on an I-Beam using aluminum plate as a spacer. It took my friend and I 3 days to install everything. The hardest part was rerouting my black pipe propane line. I also had to install it just back of center due to a steel cross beam being in the way of the middle bolt hole. I replaced the brakes and hubs as well as the wheels to match the new hubs. Overall we've been super happy with this upgrade. The trailer rides a lot smoother. I'm not finding random screws on the floor after a long bump ride. We decided to do this after our leaf spring broke 2 times, 12k miles between. We were done dealing with a subpar suspension. I probably would not recommend doing this if your leaf springs are working for you. We put a lot of miles on our trailer. We aren't weekend campers.

Timbren saved our RV road trip! The leafs on the axle on our 2018 Jayco TT came apart while driving in Maryland. We tried going to the manufacturer, but they were useless. Going to a RV mechanic meant being grounded for at least 2 months. Then we found Timbren. With the help of Timbren's excellent staff we purchased axle-less system through etrailer, who made sure we got as quick as possible. It came ahead of schedule, my husband installed the Timbren system and we were back on the road! The axle-less system is better than the original manufacturers. If you plan on taking your RV or TT farther than 100 miles GET THIS INSTALLED and get it through etrailer.

These units install easily, are well made, and perform great! The trailer doesn't bounce around like you see a lot of trailers do while traveling down a bumpy road. I traveled some unpaved roads with no issues. I am certainly glad I went axleless. I installed with 15" tires. Problem is I didn't go big enough. I intended to install on an existing trailer that I had. Changed my mind and built a new trailer. The new trailer came in heavier than I had planned. 2k pound capacity is now too small. I have to watch what I load the trailer with so I don't over load the suspension. I intend on buying the 3500 pound units when I have the money.

The order came in on time and the customer service at etrailer.com (Ashley) and Sean from Tmbren was outstanding. They both were very helpful in my choosing the right product for my needs. The axle less suspension's performance is absolutely superb. It vastly improves ride quality. I am using it on a teardrop camper that often goes on gravel roads and the raddling sound from the leaf axles was horrible. A couple of points to consider before you settle on the axle less suspension: keep in mind that you will lose some hight of the trailer. While you will gain clearance from the lack of the axle, the suspension will make the trailer sit lower than before.i had to lower my hitch by an inch to maintain the trailer leveled. Also it does appear to compress at higher rate than the leaf springs, which makes it softer but easier to reach it's limit. Overall this product is absolutely a must if you are looking to improve the safety and the quality of your towing.

Review from a similar Axle-Less Suspension in Trailer Axles


After a great deal of research, I ultimately chose the Timbren long arm kit to replace the torsion axle under my teardrop trailer. My initial impression is that there is simply no comparison between the two. It now rides better, pulls better and handles better than I could have imagined. The Timbren axle system is incredibly well built and is much more confidence-inspiring. While the spring rate closely matches my trailer weight, the components are much more rugged and robust. The spindles, bearings and brakes are rated at double the capacity of my old axle which gives me great peace of mind. I pull my trailer, both on and off road, anywhere it will fit and the long travel and heavier components are a game-changer for my travels. Installation, while requiring a bit of forethought, was otherwise straightforward and methodical. Documentation available from etrailer and Timbren, is second to none. Instructions were clear and concise with drawings and detail taking the major guesswork out of the equation. Even though, due to the odd frame design of my trailer that required a bit of work to adapt, I ended up making some frame stiffeners, the adaptation was as simple as it could possibly be. I've ordered from etrailer in the past and they were 100% accurate on this order as well. I ordered the Timbren kit without backing plates and hubs due to the requirements of my trailer and etrailer suggested, explained availability and supplied all of the components I needed. They truly a stress-less bunch of folks with an extraordinary website. I'll no doubt turn to them again...

This suspension system did EXACTLY what I wanted. I replaced the leaf springs, axle/hubs on my small trailer. The new suspension improved the capacity, lowered the bed 4+inches, improved ground clearance and allowed me to rebalance the trailer all WITHOUT having to have any welding done. Everything needs to be measured very exactly and the alignment technique is fairly cumbersome and takes a bit of time. In the end, I have a quiet, steady, strong, low riding trailer. What more could you ask for

    We've had this question sent into us before and when we spoke with Timbren they told us that the C-channel frame design will be fine assuming that he open part of the C is on the inboard side and not the outboard side of the frame. If the C opening is on the outboard side you would need to box out the frame by having a professional welder weld the C-closed.

    As long as you can get the spindle height of the Timbren system part # ASR2000S01 to match your other axle you should be just fine to use it with a standard style axle. The center of this spindle will end up being 2-5/8 inches below the bottom of the frame rail. You will also need one that has the same capacity as the axle now so that there is little to no difference in the suspension. You can put the system forward or rearward of the existing axle but it will depend on where the additional...

  • Solution for Replacement Axle on Jet Ski Trailer
    I do have a solution, but you will need to find your axle capacity in order to choose the correct replacement. Unfortunately, the diameter on a square axle does not indicate the capacity. If you let me know which bearings you have then it is possible to narrow it down and find out, or you may have information on your axle tag. Since we do not have axles that are that size, your only option would be to use the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System like the # ASR2000S01. This will...

  • Replacement Axle System For a 2,000LB Axle With BTR Spindle 74-3/4" Hub Face
    I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S01 as we do not have an axle with the measurements you are needing. This will replace your standard axle with an independent suspension that uses AEON progressive-rate main springs. These will help to absorb shock from bumps rather than transferring the shock to the trailer. It has the BTR spindle that uses the Bearing # L44649 you are needing. If you would rather stick with the solid axle design you will need to find...

  • What is Total Weight Capacity of Timbren Axle-less Suspension System # ASR1200S02
    The 1200-lb weight rating of the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR1200S02 is the total for both units together, much the same as if they were actually a single axle. In your application for an 8 x 10-foot trailer whose loaded weight will be 2000-lbs you'll need a higher-rated set of Timbrens, say their # ASR2000S01, or for even more capacity their 3500-lb-rated # ASR3500S05.

  • Solution for 59-1/2" Long Replacement Axle for Jet Ski Trailer
    I do have a solution but unfortunately, we do not have an axle that matches that size. What I can offer is the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System. This system fits any frame width so you won't need to match up an axle length. It will also upgrade the suspension on your trailer. The correct system would depend on your current axle capacity. If you aren't sure about your capacity, I would match it up with your existing bearings. We have the following capacities available: -1,200...

  • Recommended Higher Speed Rated Tires For Harbor Freight Trailer W/ 4.80-12 Tires
    Typically on a trailer the only part that has a speed rating is the tire itself, though you will need to contact the manufacturer of the trailer to confirm this. Based on the tag shown in your picture your trailer uses a 4.80-12 so for a high speed replacement we have the Taskmaster 4.80R12 Radial Trailer Tire - Load Range C # TT48012C which will be an exact replacement, but has an 81 MPH speed rating. Should you find that the hub has a speed rating, just let me know the bearing combination...

  • Replacement 2K Trailer Axle with 58 Inch Hub Face Alternatives
    The closest option we have with a standard axle is the CE Smith Trailer Axle Beam # CE33201GA which has a 57-1/2" hub-face and a 46-1/2" spring-center. An alternative option if you don't have a suspension system in place is the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S01. This bolts onto your trailer frame so it can accommodate a wider variety of applications. I've attached review videos for each for you to check out. If neither of these options work for your application...

  • Replacement Axle Recommendation for Yachtclub Snowmobile Trailer Rated for 1,880 Pounds
    For your snowmobile trailer I recommend going with a Timbren Axle-Less system such as # ASR2000S01. I have included a link to all the options rated for 2,000 pounds. The benefit is that you won't have an axle beam to rust and you still get the rubber, torsion-style suspension. To determine if the hubs you have now will fit I just need to know the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings.

  • How Much Does the Timbren 2K Axle-Less System Weigh
    The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System with Hubs part # A20RS545 has a shipping weight of 74 lbs. If you were to order the system without the trailer hubs, part # ASR2000S01 then the shipping weight would be around 57 lbs.

  • Is It Actually Easy to Replace Spindle on 2,000 lb Timbren Axle-Less System
    That's a good question, and it wouldn't be just the spindle itself that gets replaced on the Timbren Axle-Less systems, it would be the whole spindle arm that would need to be replaced if there was any damage. If you take a look at the photo I added of the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S01 you can see that the spindle arm is a separate part. So to replace the spindle you would just unbolt the arm and then bolt on the new arm which has the spindle on it. As for a...

  • Axle-Less Suspension Setup for 2,000 lb Trailer that Have 6 on 5-1/2 inch Bolt Pattern Hubs
    I have a solution for you, but it will require you to go up to the 3,500 lb version of the Timbren. For that you would want the # ASR35HDS02 and then for hubs part # AKIHUB-655-6-K.

  • Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Axle with Brake and Hub/Drum Assembly Recommendations
    Since you're needing to add electric brakes to your [email protected] trailer you want to go with the Timbren # ASR2KHDS01 which has the brake mounting flange whereas the Timbren # ASR2000S01 doesn't have provisions for the brakes. Then for brakes you can use the Dexter Axle Set # 23-468-469 and then 2 of the Hub and Drum Assembly # 84546UC3-EZ. Attached are some installation videos for you to check out!

  • What is The Limiting Factor on 7" Trailer Brakes That Requires a 10" to 13" Wheel?
    The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-2 along with the Hub # AKHD-545-2-2K and Axle # ASR2000S01 will all give the 10"-13" wheel size as those are the wheel and tire sizes that have the similar weight ratings for the components. By using larger wheels and tires that have higher weight capacities the tires are to stiff and rather than absorbing road shock it transfers that to shock to the hub and spindle. The additional shock can damage these components as well as other parts of your trailer...

  • Replacement Axle That Measures 46-1/2 Inches From Center to Center
    The closest we have is a CE Smith Axle that measure 46-1/2" from spring center to spring center, # CE33201GA. This axle has straight EZ-Lube spindles, a 1,800 lb weight capacity and measures 57-1/2" from hub face to hub face. The same axle is available, # CE33201GA-HUB but it comes with a galvanized idler hub that has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. Another option that will fit regardless of your measurements are the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension kits such as # ASR2000S01. These systems eliminate...

  • Using the Timbren Axle-Less Systems To Upgrade From Single Axle to Tandem Axle on 4,000 Lb Trailer
    The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Systems are excellent options for many reasons with one being that is makes for upgrading from a single to tandem axle setup much easier in regards to both installation difficulty and parts needed. In order to choose the correct system, you'd need a total capacity that meets the total weight of the trailer minus the tongue. The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Systems part # ASR2000S01 which has a 2,000 lbs weight capacity would have you covered...

  • Timbren Axle-Less System vs. Torsion Axles for a Sail Boat Trailer
    I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System # ASR2000S01 over a torsion axle for your trailer for a few reasons. First, the Timbren System increases ground clearance without increasing your trailer height. The Timbren System is also easier to replace as you can replace one spring at a time. They also operate independently of one another to minimize bounce for a smoother ride compared to the torsion axle system. An E-Z lube spindle is included with the system, but a Trailer Hub...

  • Will Timbren Axle-Less Suspension Fit a 1988 Jayco Dove 6 Trailer
    You have what sounds like a torsion axle. There are many different types of torsion axles. It could be that the axle insides are worn out. That can happen. But it could also be a bent component such as a spindle. All sorts of things can cause tire wear such as a worn torsion axle, bent spindle, overloading, worn bearings or other running gear components. A Timbren axle-less suspension system such as # ASR2000S01 will work great for you. This particular set up uses hubs with L44649 inner...

    The Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S01 will accept hubs that use the same bearings that it does, inner and outer bearing # L44649. (This bearing has an inner diameter of 1.063-inches.) You can check your hubs to confirm that they use bearing L44649. If not you'll need new hubs like # 8-91-05UC1-EZ, 4-on-4 hubs that use inner and outer bearing L44649; or 5-on-4-1/2 hub # 8-259-5UC1-EZ.

  • Will the 2K Timbren Axle-Less System A20RS545 Work with 15 Inch wheels
    I do have what you need but the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System part # A20RS545 will only work with wheels up to 13" diameter because the hubs do not have enough surface area to support this larger size wheel. Instead, you would want to use the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System part # ASR2000S01 with the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K as this would provide you with a hub size that is compatible with the larger 15" wheels.
