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.


etrailer Axles

etrailer 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.

Review from a similar etrailer Axle Beam in Trailer Axles


I could not find the exact axle for my 2006 Carryall tandem axle trailer. This one was a perfect fit between spring perches but increased the distance between wheels by one inch. Also had to use a wheel seal with a larger ID. This was not a problem at all. I will be replacing the front axle shortly. The originals had a rust issue where the spring gripes (u-bolts) hold the axle. Well built product!

Review from a similar etrailer Axle Beam in Trailer Axles


Received exactly when expected. I realize they where odd shaped items but I think they could’ve been packaged a little better than plastic wrap. The rubber boot over the spindle was a great touch but the flange bolts were unprotected. Other than packaging I was very pleased with my order and they bolted right up.

See what our Experts say about this etrailer Trailer Axles

  • Is There a Replacement Hub for Trailer with LM11948 Outer Bearing
    I do have an option for you although we don't have a set of hubs which use the LM11948 bearing. Therefore, the only option we can offer is a new axle which allows you to upgrade to a standard hub/drum and braking assembly. In order to choose the correct replacement you'll need to know the weight capacity, hub face length, and spring center length. The Trailer Idler Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles part # e48GR for example has a 2,000 lb weight capacity, measures 60" long at the hub face,...

  • Will Trailer Idler Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles - 2,000 Lbs Work with Old Hubs
    The Trailer Idler Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles part # e48GR uses L44649 inner and outer bearings so as long as your old hubs use these same bearings they will work grease with this axle. If you are replacing the axle with one that has the same weight capacity then yes, you can reuse all your old components such as hubs/drums, idler hubs, or braking assemblies.

  • Should There Be a Washer Between Outer Bearing and Castle Nut on etrailer 2,000 lb Trailer Axle
    It is not required to install a washer between the outer bearing and the castle nut on the Trailer Idler Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles part # e48GR. That said, it's not a bad idea to use one and I recommend this to ensure there is no damage to the outer bearing. For this, we have the Washer For 1" Spindle part # SW1000.

  • Will The Trailer Idler Axle Beam Work With Dexter 8-01A Hubs?
    I wasn't able to find any information on your Dexter hubs, however the Trailer Idler Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles # e48GR that you mention will work with a Replacement Trailer Hub Bearing # L44649 and the Grease Seal # 58846. So, as long as your Dexter 8-01A hubs have the same measurements, this should fit with no issues.

  • Recommended 2,000 Lb Trailer Axle with Brakes for Small Trailer
    The best option we could provide you with is the Trailer Idler Axle Beam part # e48GR which measures 60" long and has a 2,000 lb weight capacity. It's not setup for brakes so in order to equip them you'd need to have a brake mounting flange welded on, the Brake Mounting Flange for 1-3/4" Round Trailer Axles part # 4-34. This will then allow you to add brakes like the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-2 and hubs/drums like the Easy Grease Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 2K Axles...

  • Option For 60 Inch Trailer AxleSince it appears nobody makes hubs for my
    We do have axles with 60 inch hub face to hub face measurements. This is a 2,000 lb axle, though the spring centers measure 48 inches. What you can do though is have new springs welded on at the location you need with Spring Seat # TRSS175. This axle is the Trailer Idler Axle Beam with Easy Grease Spindles - 60" Long - 2,000 lbs # e48GR. Then for the hubs, the right one for you will depend on if you need a hub with a 4 on 4" bolt pattern or 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern, as well as your wheel...
