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.

Thoroughly Tested for Safety

This hub-and-drum assembly meets the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. This assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This assembly has also been tested by QAI Laboratories for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.


Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)


Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)


Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Review from a similar etrailer Axle Beam w Hubs in Trailer Axles


I purchased two of these axles to replace my old square ones. They appear to be good quality but they arrived damaged. The grease fittings on the ends were smashed because packaging wasn't adequate. I've emailed back and forth and was shipped the wrong parts for replacement. In the end I was told I'd have to cut the spindles off and replace them. All I need is new grease zerks that thread on the ends of the axles. Be prepared to purchase these on your own because customer service is subpar on a remedy and the way they package them for shipping does not prevent damage.


Comments
I see that our customer service department is working on this with you. In order for us to better assist you, we will need some more information.

Its a shame that the end zerk fittings have arrived damaged. We recommend that the most cost efficient way to correct this, would be to replace the zerk fittings with part # Gzerk

Review from a similar etrailer Axle Beam w Hubs in Trailer Axles


I'm currently installing it to replace a practically good Axle but the Spindle on the original Axle doesn't have Cotter Pins. A friend suggested I change the bearings since the wheel was wobbling but after I changed them, the wheel continued to come off. After watching U-Tube Videos, everyone of them had Cotter Pins, so I decided to be safe rather than sorry and replace the Axle with one of yours plus now ALL the bearings are NEW with New Hubs, WELL WORTH THE MONEY I SPENT.

Review from a similar etrailer Axle Beam w Hubs in Trailer Axles


5 stars for looks, apparent quality, and ease of assembly. My only complaint is the axle came with the zert fittings installed on the ends of the axles. This is convenient, but both were non functional upon arrival. One was slightly damaged, and both had the rubber protective material jammed in the grease fitting that I couldn’t remove. I had 2 extra zert fittings in the shop, so quick change and no problem. Maybe these could be shipped uninstalled?

Other than the small, minor complaint, the axle and hubs look great.

Review from a similar etrailer Axle Beam w Hubs in Trailer Axles


Axle seems solid. "Pre-installed" bearings had to be put back in because they slid out easily when installing the hub on the axle. I also had to go out and purchase new cotter pins (both were installed to a point where removing them resulted in one breaking and not trusting the other) and dust caps were heavily dented. That said, axle came 2 days earlier so I got to fish more.

  • What Replacement Axle will Work on My Axle with a 5 on 4-1/2 Lug Pattern?
    I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, given the age and the fact that the bearings do not link to a specific axle, I recommend an entirely new axle for your ~1964 Ford Fairline trailer. For example, I recommend the Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 89" Long - 3,500 lbs # e65GR. This axle has a 5 on 4-1/2 lug pattern as well. I went ahead and linked all of our axles that have 5 on 4-1/2 lug patters for you to browse. In order to find a compatible axle, you will...

  • Is Downward Bend in Trailer Axle Safe
    Standard axles, like the Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e65GR, have a slight bend upward so that when you have the trailer loaded the axle is straight. If the axle becoming straight is the slight bend you're talking about then this is completely normal. If the axle is actually bending downward then it was either installed upside down or it has been compromised and is not okay to use. If you can let me know the hub-face and spring center measurements for your axle I can see if we have a...

    From what I was able to find about your E12RB Econ trailer it looks like you have a 3,500 lb axle. You will need to verify the capacity.

  • How to Change Spring Center on e65GR Trailer Axle
    In order to change the spring center on the Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e65GR you will need to cut off the existing spring seats. Once they have been removed, you will need to have # TRSS238 welded on to match your 72" measurement. If you have some kind of adjustable bracket I do not recommend using it. There should be no way for the leaf springs to move horizontally along the axle aside from moving the spring seat.

  • Does Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs e65GR Come With U-Bolts
    The Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e65GR does not include U-bolts so you will need to purchase them separately. For a kit that will fit this axle and also comes with the U-bolt plates I recommend using the CE Smith U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 3,500-lb, Round Trailer Axles # CE23002.

  • Diameter of 3,500 lb Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs e65GR
    Yes, the diameter is indeed 2-3/8 inches for the 3,500 lb axle you asked about, which is the following part number: - Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 89" Long - 3,500 lbs # e65GR So they will work with U-bolts that fit 2-3/8" diameter axles like part # CE15286GA.

  • Comparing etrailer and Dexter 89" 3,500 Pound Axles With 5 on 4-1/2 Idler Hubs
    There are only two real differences between the # e65GR and the Dexter # 35545I-EZ-89. One is the compatible wheel size. The etrailer axle works with 13" - 15" wheels while the Dexter axle works with 13" - 17-1/2" wheels. The other is the warranty. The etrailer axle comes with a limited lifetime warranty and lifetime technical support from etrailer.com, while the Dexter has a 2-year warranty. Aside from this they are virtually identical. If you have wheels that are larger than 15" I would...

  • Installation of Idler Hub on etrailer e65GR Trailer Axle
    The # e65GR uses hub assembly # AKIHUB-545-35-K. I have attached an installation video of the hub below. Since the hub is pre-greased that means the bearings are already packed so you can ignore those steps. You will still want to add additional grease as part of the installation which can be seen in the video. The base type is lithium complex so you can use something like the # L11390.

    First I think you need to address the axle portion of your trailer since you have a fabricated lift block on a drop spindle axle.

By switching to a Straight Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e65GR you will be able to get rid of the blocks and those extremely long u bolts.
