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.


Hub Face and Spring Center Measurements on Standard Trailer Axle

Another helpful measurement to have is the flange-to-flange (C) length, which is measured from the outside of one brake flange to the outside of the one opposite. This length may be easy to obtain if you are replacing an axle, but it's important to note that this measurement is not the preferred method for determining which axle will best fit your trailer.


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.


Dexter Axles

Dexter 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.


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"

Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Axles - Leaf Spring Suspension - 35545I-EZ-89 Review

Today we're going to review part number 35545I-EZ-89. This is the Dexter Trailer Axle with the Idler Hubs. The bolt pattern is a 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. It's an easy lube design and has a 3500 pound weight capacity. Now this Axle being will act as part of your trailer suspension system. It is used to replace an axle on your trailer and it's made of a high strength steel construction. Now this is a under slung design. If you can see the spring seats on each end are welded to the under side of an axle for mounting your lease springs to. The under slung design will give you a low ride height which makes it easier to load and unload your trailer. Now you might notice in the very center here, there's a bend near the center of the axle, this is what ensures the proper camber angle.

Basically each axle manufacture to create a certain camber angle. This will ensure that the angle of the wheels is correct for your towing needs. Each axle is made so that your trailer's tires will run along the pavement evenly with contact across the whoIe width of the thread. The result is an excellent straight line acceleration for steady in line tracking. Having the center of the axle a bit higher and the sides bent lower allows the axle to give just enough when you put a load on your trailer. That load would push down on that and even that out and give you the correct contact patch of your tires. Now this does include the straight easy lube spindles on each end if you can see here and it also includes the spindle knot, the D washer and the knot retainer.

There is no drop to these spindles. At the very end, this is a easy lube design, so there's an easy lube zerk fitting, it's a grease zerk fitting that you attach a grease gun to and that would lube the bearings that are installed on here. Now the spring seats right here and the spindles and these break mounting flanges are all welded on. Now this part does come with these cast iron idler hubs which are sturdy and durable. Now the idler hubs do not have breaks so you won't be using these break mounting flanges, those would be used . those in the wiring that's included here would be used if you're wanted to eventually down the road upgrade to putting electric breaks on the axle itself. This part number actually just comes with the idler hubs. Now the bearings, as you see here, the inner and outer bearings are all included.

The races are already pre-installed into the idler hubs themselves, the grease seals, the grease caps and these are the easy lube that have the rubber plug that comes up so you can access the zerk fitting, they are all included. Comes with the 10 1/2 inch log knots and this marine grade wheel bearing grease is also included. Now the capacity on this is, its weight capacity is 3500 pounds. There are some measurements on this axle with . there's multiple ways you can measure the length of an axle beam but the hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center lengths are your most accurate. Hub face would be when you put these idler hubs on and connect them all down. If you'd measure from the length of ...

measure from the base of 1 wheel stud to the base of the wheel stud on the other side, that would give you the hub face to hub face measurement and I'll do that just right now. I don't have the hubs on but just to give you an idea of the length once they would be installed. it's going to give you 89 inches, would be your hub face to hub face length. Now the other most accurate measurement would be the spring center to spring center length and that's basically right here. The approximate width of your trailer is measured from the center of 1 spring seat on 1 side to the center of the spring seat on the other side. Again if we just run center spring seat to center here, it's 74 inches. Now there's also another measurement which is the break mounting flange to the break mounting flange. Now that is not as accurate as the first 2 I mentioned to you but I'll still give it to you. It's good to use if you're replacing an axle you have on there. It's going to be 82 5/8 inches. Now on these idler hubs, these are a 5 log 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern hub. They do come with the half inch log knots that bolt them onto and they will use a wheel size anywhere from 13 inches on up to 17 1/2 inches. Now the 2 big outer diameter on this axle is 2 3/8 inches. The spindle size is 1 1/16 inches. The break flange configuration, if you go to use this down the road and want to put electric breaks on it is a 4 bolt configuration. And that should do it for the review on part number 35545I-EZ-89. The Dexter Trailer Axle with the Idler Hubs with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. It's an easy lube design and a 3500 pound weigh capacity. .

I changed the axle on my boat trailer a year ago after finding the spindles pitted and leaking grease from the rear seals. Purchased an axle from e-trailer with bearings seals and spindles and was very pleased. etrailer has been a company that I would do business again as needed. Their products have been shown to be a good quality and have arrived on time and in good condition. Have been very pleased with the experience. 508972

Purchased a trailer axle with hubs. I had lost a left wheel, hub and all and was lost at a loss as to how to proceed with fixing the bent, now damaged left spindle. Finding the complete axle and hub set up at etrailer was a God sent. The removal of the old and installation of the new axle was easy. Slide it in, tighten up the u-blots and you're home. A side positive was that my new axle had a pre-load bend in it and also preset for toe in. Toe In like on your car to keep it running straight down the road. ( you'll have to read they're information literature) 540161

We haul the trailer to Chicago often. The axle is still in service and giving us no concern for worry. In fact, the trailer tracks better than it ever did using your axle setup.

But when the second box arrived there were the hubs I was expecting. Thank you etrailer.com your pics and shipping saved me over $200 on a single axle. 182546

The axle I ordered was successfully installed yesterday. One issue I had was with the spring seats. My spring centers are 72 1/2. Knowing that I ordered the Spring Seats TRSS238. I cut off the seats that came with the axle as I knew I had to do but when I went to install the new seats I found the cutout diameter was too large for the axle. For that reason I did not use the seats. Fortunately I did a neat job of cutting off the original seats so I welded those at the location I needed. They worked fine and fit very well. It would have been a problem if I did not get the seats off the axle as neat clean as I did. Other that that issue the axle arrived in 5 days through standard shipping and hopefully will work for years to come. 273641

God the product in two days from the order day. It came in perfect shape and ordering the additional mounting brackets was very easy. Item is sturdy and was quite easy to install, especially using the helpful instruction video link (there is one missing step in the video, though. It does not show the mounting of the bushing that fits next to the inner bearing on the hub, but it was still pretty easy to figure out). Great purchase and the whole axle swap took less than 30 minutes! 228944

Do you have a question about this Trailer Axle?


  • How To Install E-Z Lube Axles
  • The E-Z lube feature is located in the spindle not on the hub assembly. The spindle has a grease fitting on the end to allow for easy lubrication. As long as the hub is compatible with your spindle then it will not need to be rated for E-Z lube applications. If you want to install an E-Z lube setup, you will want to replace your trailer's axles as the bearing buddies are not compatible with E-Z lube in addition to the difficulty of replacing a trailers spindle.

  • How To Choose the Correct Axle Hub Face Length When Building a Trailer
  • Generally speaking, the hub face measurements will be around 15" longer than the spring center measurement. That said, this can vary based on multiple different factors such as tire size, offset, etc. The most common options we offer are the Dexter 3,500 Lb Trailer Axle Beams part # 35545I-EZ-89 for a 89" hub face and 74" spring center or part # 7359765-I for a 95" hub face and 80" spring center.

  • Which Way Should Bow of Trailer Axle Face When Installed on Trailer
  • Trailer axles are supposed to have a bow in them that faces down towards the ground. With the weight of the trailer normally this flattens out slightly and gives you the correct camber you need. Whoever flipped your axle should have used an over under kit like the # K71-384-00 to move the springs to the other side of the axle while still allowing it to face the right direction. Flipping them like they did is why your tires are wearing like you mentioned. All of the axles we have like...

  • Can Trailer Axle be Measured with Wheels Installed to Pick Out Axle Replacement

The 1/2" difference in the hub face to hub face will not be an issue at all.

  • Determining if Dexter Trailer Axle # 35545I-EZ-89 Will Allow for Frame Clearance with Trailer Tires
  • There are a few variables to consider when determining if the Dexter Trailer Axle # 35545I-EZ-89 you referenced will fit your trailer and allow for proper clearance between the wheels and frame. It will depend on if the 75 inch frame width you mentioned is its overall width (with any overhang from the bed) as well as what sized tires you plan on running. I first recommend just making sure that the 74 inch spring seat length on this particular axle matches your existing unit. Then when...

  • 3,500 lb Axle Suspension and Leaf Spring Install Hardware Recommendation
  • For a 3,500 lb capacity trailer axle with idler hubs that have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern you would want the part # 35545I-EZ-89. If you need brake hubs you would want the # 35545E-ST-EZ-89. These axles have a distance of 89 inches from hub face to hub face and a distance of 74 inches from spring center to spring center. For a 3,500 lb rated leaf spring you would want the # SP-212275, then for a hanger kit you would want # APS1 and then for U-bolt kit to hold the axles to the springs...

  • How to Identify Compatible Hubs for Vintage Utility Trailer
  • Thank you for the photo of your vintage utility trailer's spindle. The simplest and surest way to identify a compatible trailer hub is to identify the inner and outer bearings and the grease seal it uses. Matching up those components along with the axle weight rating and the hub bolt pattern is pretty much it. However, in your case I can tell you up front that we have only a few hubs that use a bearing whose inner diameter is as small as 0.75-inches. Bearing # LM11949 has an inner diameter...

  • Replacement Trailer Spindles to Allow Installation of Different Hubs
  • All of the trailer spindles we sell are weld-on types, including those with brake flanges like Redline # R20384EZ that fits 1.75-inch diameter axles. The largest diameter spindle we sell is for a 2-1/4-inch axle beam, part # R50342EZ; this can be seen on the link provided. This spindle is for a 5200-lb axle and it has a 5-bolt brake mounting flange. It is almost surely going to be easier and less expensive for you to replace your axles than to have a professional welder install new spindles...

  • Proper Spacing Between the Hub Face and Spring Center Locations for 7,000-lb Triple Axles
  • When you replace the axles on a trailer you will look at the (A) hub-face-to-hub-face and the (B) spring-center-to-spring-center measurements and choose an axle that has the same measurements that your current axle does. Since you are wanting to add new axles to a trailer bed that has never had axles installed before you will need to make sure that the hub face is not too far away from the spring centers (as you mentioned). Your can adjust the spring seats on your 7,000-lb axles by having...

  • Can Axle with 87 Inch Hub Face to Hub Face Measurement be Replaced with Axle 35545I-EZ-89
  • Yes, you could still use axle # 35545I-EZ-89 even though the measurements between the two are not an exact match. If the new axle was shorter than your existing axle that could be an issue. but in this case the slight difference will be fine.

  • How to Pick Out an Axle for a 6 x 12 Utility Trailer
  • Basically you will want to measure your trailer to determine where you will want the wheels of it to be so that you can pick out the correct length axle. There is not a set length of axle that a 6 x 12 trailer should take so you will have to determine about where you want the wheels to be and then measure the distance between where the mounting flange of the rims would be. The only size 3,500 lb axle we carry is the part # 35545I-EZ-89 which will have a distance of 89 inches from hub...

  • Replacement Axle and Leaf Springs for 1970s Shoreline Single Axle Boat Trailer
  • Since your axle capacity is unknown - and since it is also rust damaged - you're probably on the right track in thinking of replacing it. We offer both axle beams by themselves and in kits that also include hubs, bearings, races etc. Please see the linked page. We also offer axle-less suspension systems from Timbren, such as their 3500-lb-rated # ASR3500S05. These unique systems mount directly to your trailer frame - no axle needed - and they can save you lots of install time, potentially...

  • 10 Inch Brakes Will not fit in hub of 1962 Shasta Camper
  • Your new electric trailer brakes # AKEBRK-35 should not fit in the way you are describing; it sit inside the groove. On a vintage trailer such as yours there can be fit issues so I recommend replacing your hubs. In order to choose the correct replacement hub and drum assembly, you will need to know both the inner and outer bearing numbers. These numbers can be found on stamped on the bearings themselves. You will also need to know your wheel's bolt pattern; I've added a link to a help article...

  • How to Estimate Trailer Axle Weight Capacity from Axle Diameter
  • Thank you for the photo of your converted trailer. Nice! Trailer axles usually leave the factory with a sticker or place installed directly on the axle beam that indicates the manufacturer, part number and weight rating. You can check the axles on your trailer for this sticker or plate. Given the age of the trailer these may be long gone. If none is present on the axles then you can note the axle diameter as this can get you in the ballpark in terms of weight rating. An axle diameter...

  • Replacement Dexter Axle for Travel Trailer
  • So long as your current axle has a hub-face-to-hub-face length of 89" and spring-center-to-spring-center length of 74" you could replace your current axle with the Dexter # 35545I-EZ-89, although moving your brakes over would require you remove the idler hubs from this axle and get new hubs, so it doesn't make a lot of sense. Instead, I recommend getting the Dexter EZ-Lube Axle With Electric Brakes # 35545E-ST-EZ-89, which comes with all of the parts you'll need - the axle, hub and...

  • Available Replacement Trailer Axle Kits
  • To use new hubs on your existing trailer spindles the new hubs need to use the same bearings. Either bearing part numbers or dimensions such as what you provided (thank you) will allow you to confirm a proper fit. I checked all bearings we offer for ones that have the same (or very close to the) spindle diameters you provided. Bearing # LM48548 has an inner diameter of 1.375-inches so it will fit at the spindle where it measures 1.370-inches. For the outer bearing spindle dimension of...

  • Radial Tires to Replace Old 7.75-15 Size on Vintage Boat Trailer
  • Your vintage trailer's 7.75-15 size tires are probably on the order of 30 years old at this point and this exact size is no longer offered. A close modern equivalent is a 205/75-15 size, which is slightly wider at just over 8-inches and also about 27-inches in overall diameter once mounted. We offer four different 5-bolt wheel patterns: 5 on 4-1/2 Inch, 5 on 4-3/4 Inch, 5 on 5 Inch and 5 on 5-1/2 inch. I have linked an article to help you determine which you have.

  • How to Find the Overall Width of an Axle with Tires for an 8ft Trailer
  • The final width (with tires) of the Dexter Trailer Axle, # 35545I-EZ-89, will depend on the wheel and tire size you intend to use. You would simply add the width of one tire (assuming your wheels have a zero offset) to the 89 inch hub face dimension of this axle to find the total width. For example, if you have 6 inch wide tires, then you would add 6 inches to 89 which gives you a total width of 95 inches. When choosing a replacement axle, it is important to choose an axle that has...

  • Recommendation for How to Remove a Bent Spindle from Axle on Utility Trailer
  • Removing a damaged spindle is the easy part - it can be cut off with a torch or saw. But welding on a new one is another matter and requires the new spindle be welded exactly straight. It is actually easier to replace the entire axle with a new one that has good spindles on both ends. This may even be less costly than having a new spindle welded on by a qualified welder. It will also ensure that both spindles will have the same working lifespan, which would not be the case if only one is...
