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"

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.

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

After a slight delay on my part I finally completed my project. I owe the overall success of this project to Terri, and Lori..They were so great in assisting me with my return thus ensuring I finally ordered the right parts for my smoker. Quality of products was Excellent...

Excellent help from Lori and Teri BIG KUDOS Thanks,


The product was received as advertised and in good condition.
The price was competitive and service was exception.
I have purchased from etrailer in the past and will continue to in the future.


As far as expediting my order it was the best service ive had, i ordered my axle on sunday eve and it was ready to go that night. I wont be engaging my trailer project until spring but if its as good as other items i have ordered from etrailer then ill be very happy. Thank you


Poor packaging for shipping of the axle. Was just rapped in thin plastic. Both ends were exposed. Not sure how nothing was damaged. The hubs came separately and boxed as expected.


Excellent product, easy installation!


Exactly what I needed and it takes a routine beating on the trails.


Works very wellness


Just what I asked for. Great shipping time, too.


One of the easiest transactions I have done and fits absolutely perfect, thanks so much and will recommend etrailer for any parts needed. Fast shipping as well

excellent choice for the price. made a trailer from scratch and acle worked well


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

Easy ordering, axle arrived on time and no damage. The axle worked perfect for my camping trailer, would recommend your company any time.


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.

Customer Service will be reaching out.

Great product! I bent my old axle by overloading my utility trailer. I found your web site and found a replacement. I thought the price was reasonable. The new axle came fast and was easy to install.

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Axle For Easier to Grease Hub
    There isn't a hub that is going to be easier to grease, you would need to replace your axle to get an Easy Lube spindle, which is what will allow easier greasing of the hub. In order to choose the correct replacement axle for your trailer you will need to know the dimensions of your current axle's hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center, as well as the weight capacity of the axle you need, which should match or exceed the GVWR of your trailer. For example, the Trailer Axle...

  • Why Is The etrailer Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e84YR Only Compatible With 8-12" Wheels?
    The Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e84YR shows for 8-12" wheels as once move up to larger diameter wheels you move into weight ratings that are much higher than the axle rating. Having wheels and tires with higher weight capacities means that the tires will not flex as they should for that load. Which will cause the trailer to bounce more and add additional stress to the axle and suspension being used.

  • Wheel Size Compatible With Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e84YR
    The Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e84YR is only able to use 8"-12" wheels due to its weight capacity. Since this axle is rated for 2,000lbs you will need to use wheels and tires near that same rating. If you were to use 15" wheels and tires like the Karrier ST205/75R15 Radial Trailer Tire with 15" White Spoke Wheel # AM32395 that has a weight rating of 1,820lbs per tire, the tire will not flex and the added stress will transfer to axle and risks damage to the hub/spindle.

  • Comparing etrailer Tailer Axle # e84YR To Dexter 6047 2,000LB Trailer Axle
    The etrailer Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e84YR is different than the 2,000lb Dexter 6047 axle. This axle is closer to the Dexter # T20BTR-6048 with the 48" spring center to spring center measurement. Both have 60" hub faces with a underslung design. The only difference to the 6047 is going to be the spring center distance.

  • Comparing Ease Lube Spindles and Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors for Boat Trailer with 2K Axle
    The Bearing Buddy Bearing Protectors are great for boat trailers as they offer both easy greasing and better protection from water entering the hub. Therefore, I recommend these over easy lube spindles which will do a better job of greasing the bearings but won't be as good at keeping out water.
