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.

Video Transcript for Review of etrailer by AxleTek Trailer Axles - 2,000 lbs 60 Inch Long Idler Axle - e48GR

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at this trailer axle with the easy grease spindles. This is gonna be a great option for those of you who are needing to replace the axle on your trailer, or if you're making your own trailer and you wanna have more of a custom suspension system, this will work for that as well. But of course, there are lots of different options for axles out there, different weight capacities, different lengths, that sort of thing, so you wanna make sure that you're getting the right one for your trailer. This is a 1 3/4 inch diameter round steel beam, it's going to have a max weight capacity of 2,000 pounds, so will work great for your trailers that have that 2,000 pound weight capacity, and then you're also gonna need to know the length. So there's two different ways that you can measure the length on this axle, the first is gonna be from your spring seats where your leaf springs will attach to, these are welded onto the axle, so it's gonna be a nice static reference point for us to measure from, so from the center of one spring seat to the center of the other spring seat, it's probably about 48 inches, and then the other way to measure is gonna be from your hub face, now, obviously this is just the axle, the hubs are not included, but once you get your hubs installed from the outside, flat edge of one hub to the outside flat edge of the other, it's gonna be right at 60 inches.

So again, make sure that that's gonna work for your application. You can see right here in the middle, we do have a little bit of a bend in the axle, that's gonna be our camber, so as we have our load on our trailer, when it's under load, it's going to ensure a nice even road to tread contact with the full width of our tire, so we're not going to have to worry about our tires wearing unevenly, so having that camber in there is gonna be great for your straight line towing and acceleration. Our spindles are welded onto our axle using a patented welding process, and this is going to allow the spindle to actually slide over top of the axle, so it's gonna provide about a 40% stronger weld here to help prevent spindle failure, it's also going to help ensure proper alignment of our spindles, so that we don't have to worry about things being uneven and that sort of thing. And you can see this is welded in the straight alignment, so there's no drop to it whatsoever. Our built in grease zerk here is going to give us that easy grease application, so we can simply hook up our grease gun, pump some grease in there, and then it's going to come out of hole right around here, right on this side, that's going to fill up that cavity, and make sure that everything is well lubricated inside there, and make it a little bit easier for us to keep everything greased.

Our spring seats are welded on the bottom of our axle, so it's going to allow us to mount our leaf springs in the underslung orientation, which is going to provide a nice low ride height to make it easier to load and unload our trailer. This axle is CSA, QAI, and SAE-N certified, so you can trust it meets those high quality standards, it's gonna do a good job for you, hold up well, and do exactly what you need it to do. It also comes with a limited lifetime warranty, so if you we're to have any problems with it, you're more than welcome to reach out to us here at etrailer.com. We're always happy to work with our customers to make sure you're getting good quality products and having a good experience. So as long as that weight capacity and length work for you, I think you're gonna be very happy with this axle, I think it'll do a great job for you.

That's gonna complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Axles

  • Is There a Replacement Hub for Trailer with LM11948 Outer 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,...
