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.

E-Z Lube Spindles Make Lubrication Simple

The E-Z Lube spindles on this axle are meant to work with E-Z Lube-compatible hubs to make lubricating your bearings quick and easy. Each E-Z Lube spindle has a zerk fitting on the end. And every E-Z Lube hub comes with a grease cap that has an easy-to-remove rubber plug. Just pop out the plug on the cap to access the zerk on the spindle. When you inject grease into the zerk with a grease gun, the grease will flow to both the inner and outer bearings of the hub, lubricating the bearings and forcing out old, ineffective grease. Once you see new grease beginning to be pushed out, you know that your bearings are fully lubricated. This means that you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

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.

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.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (379 Customer Reviews)

Round trailer axle beam measures 95" from hub face to hub face (when hubs - sold separately - are mounted) and 80" from spring center to spring center. E-Z Lube spindles make it easy to lubricate bearings (sold separately).


Adam was extremely helpful! After searching long and hard, the closest I could find was this axle of 80” spring centers. Mine were only 76” so Adam set me up with a pair of spring seats so I could carefully cut of the factory ones, grind smooth and weld the new seats at the 76” I needed to fit my trailer. After repainting, it looked like factory again. All others parts, brake assemblies, and drum/hub assemblies with bearings fit perfect!


Mission accompolished just a few minutes ago. The attached (3) images attached tell the story.

Any customer relocating spring seats should measure closely before welding new seats in place to fit their trailer needs.

Again your technical assistance and quick order leave me a very very satisfied customer..
[Thumbs up]


As described. I had to have the spring mounts moved in but that's not uncommon. Works as it should, Thanks.

Excellent,better quality than the original.
Eric A - 07/27/2021


Fast delivery, part was the correct one, with one exception. I had to have the mounting bracket repositioned just like the previous one I ordered.
Once that is done, it’s a perfect fit. Thus I could only give 4 instead of 5 stars.


Best axels available. The bend in the middle prevents the tires from wearing the inside edges down when carrying heavy loads. Shipping is always fast from etrailer. The axel arrived half way across the country in only 3 days! Grear company to deal with.


Axle fit perfect. Prompt delivery too.


Excellent service from etrailer the axle was just what I needed my original axle was Chinese junk as usual Dexter made in the USA is all I need to see.


Web site/video were GREAT!
Needed this
Dexter Axle to repair the car trailer to get to our local race track this week.
Communication, tracking of this Axle put me at at ease.



I have always received quality products and prompt service from etrailer. I was, however, surprised to find that the same axle that I order in the fall of last year had gone up $70 in price and the u-bolt kit price nearly doubled!


Easy to install, comes with a grease fitting that makes greasing the bearings a cinch! Perfect fit and etrailer shipped it out fast!


Had the parts I needed in stock when nobody else did. Was shipped extremely fast. Great job!!


Axle was a perfect match to the one being replaced. However the expected delivery date was not met, it was delivered 7 days later.


They are holding up just fine


Parts come in one or two days most things are free shipping allways good fit and Quality I would recommend this company to every one I know.


Good quality and fast shipping will definitely buy again


All products were as advertised. I used the expedited shipping and received my order in 3 days!!! Great prices and lots of helpful support documentation. I would highly recommend them for your trailer parts needs


Axle was delivered a day early. Ordered Sun. delivered Wed. It was wrapped and well protected from damage .
Website was easy to navigate and product was described well.


I can’t believe how quickly I received this item! Ordered on a Friday afternoon and received on the next Wednesday. Courtney was very helpful on phone. Thank you!


Product as described and fast shipping another happy customer here

  • Replacement for a Marine Master Boat Trailer Axle
    In order to determine whether or not the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop part # 7685269 will be a good replacement for your Marine Master Boat Trailer Axle we would need to know the distance between the hub faces and spring centers on the axle you have now. It would also be helpful to know your axles weight capacity. The Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop has a 3,500 lb capacity, 95" hub face to hub face, and a 80" spring center to spring center measurement. If this is what...

  • How Do I Measure the Drop Distance on a Trailer Drop Axle?
    Yes, you are correct. In order to correctly take this measurement you will need to measure from the center of the spindle to the center of the main axle tube. I have included a picture for reference.

  • Is it Okay to Use Two Axles of Different Capacities on a Tandem Axle Trailer
    Trailer axles will typically have the bend in the axle beam so that when the trailer is loaded down, the beam will flatten out causing the tire treads to make full contact with the pavement. If straight axle beams are used, the wheels could get into a negative camber situation with the trailer loaded, which will cause increased tire wear on the inside edge of the tire tread. Using a higher rated axle isn't recommended as it won't change the load bearing capacity of the trailer. The suspension...

  • Does Drop Spindle Add Clearance?
    You are correct, the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles # 7685269 does lower the trailer. The clearance is the clearance of the spindle from the axle, as you can see in the accompanying photo.

    The Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles - 95" Long - 3,500 lbs # 7685269 does have a 3,500 lb capacity so I assume you just replaced one of the axles on a tandem-axle trailer because otherwise the axle would be far overloaded. Assuming that's true, there is going to be some flex in an axle when it is under a load; if you have a pair of 3,500 lb axles and are hauling something in the neighborhood of the capacity, it will flex even more.

  • What Info is Needed to Pick Out Replacement Axle for Trailer
    When picking out a trailer axle you need to make sure you get a few things matched up. The capacity like you have already, the the length from hub face to hub face, and the distance between spring seats. The Dexter hub part # 7685269 that you referenced is a 3,500 lb axle that has a hub face to hub face dimension of 95 inches, has 80 inches between spring seats an also has a 4 inch drop. If that all matches what you have this would work well. If you need something else let me know.

  • Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes For A Haulmark Trailer

These specifics correspond to Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - 4" Drop - E-Z Lube - 5 on 4-1/2 - 95" - 3.5K # 7685269-EB. This axle includes all the bearings, races and grease seals.

  • Can Spring Seats of Dexter Trailer Axle # 7685269-I be Moved
    Yes, if you were okay with some welding you could remove the spring seats of the Dexter axle # 7685269-I and move them to 74 inches apart. This would likely void the warranty.

  • 3,500 lb Axle Replacement for 2013 Neo Snowmobile Trailer
    The Dexter trailer with 4 inch drop that you referenced # 7685269-EB seemingly is the correct axle but you need to verify the hub face to hub face dimension as well. If that dimension is 95 inches this is the correct axle since this has 80 inches between spring seats and has the 4 inch drop you need as well.

  • Should I Replace The Spindle Or The Axle On My 2009 Fleetwood Pioneer 23FQ Travel Trailer
    Yes, this could happen with a bent spindle. I recommend replacing the entire axle and not just a spindle. Just replacing the spindle can be problematic because the new spindle will need to be welded EXACTLY straight. The spindle needs to be centered and concentric. It will require a highly trained welder who has the correct jigs and afterward your spindles will have different lifespans. You can find out what axles you have on your 2009 Fleetwood Pioneer 23FQ by checking your owner's manual...

  • Is the Dexter 7359765-EB A Drop Spindle Axle
    According to our records, you ordered a # 7359765-EB lb straight axle, not a 4 inch drop. For a 4 inch drop spindle axle, you'd want to order part # 7685269. I've linked you to a product description video featuring the Dexter # 7685269 axle.

  • Can I Change Out Longer Hangars and Short Equalizers for Longer Ones to Gain Fender Clearance
    Since you have only moved things ever so slightly using a longer hanger like the Front/Center/Rear Hanger for Double-Eye Springs - 4-1/4" Tall part # E4139 will give you the desired effect and give you the clearance you need. You will want to use one at each connection point so at the end of each spring and above the equalizer.

  • Will My Brakes Fit the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop Part # 7685269
    The Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop part # 7685269 has four bolt brake mounting flanges already welded on. Therefore, if the brakes you have now have this same four bolt brake mounting flange then they will transfer over. The four bolt brake mounting flange is common on 10" x 2-1/4" braking assemblies like part # AKEBRK-35-SA which are commonly found on 3,500 lb axles. If you have a 3,500 lb axle now then they will most likely work for you but you can check by counting the brake mounting...

  • Recommended Leaf Springs and Leaf Spring Hangers for Dexter 3,500 Lb Drop Axle
    The correct set of leaf spring hangers have more to do with the leaf springs used than the axle.

In order to do this you will simply need the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit # K71-384-00 which will work so long as you are using double-eye springs, and fit the 2-3/8" Dexter Trailer Axle Beam # 7685269.

We can't order custom axles, but we do offer a Dexter # 7359765-EB off-the-shelf axle that's very similar, the only difference is that the leaf spring seat center to center distances don't match exactly.

  • Can a Lippert Axle be Replaced with a Dexter Axle?

The branding of the axle typically doesn't make a difference as long as the measurements match or are very very close.

  • Should The Drop Spindle On a Leaf Sprung Trailer Axle Be Angled Toward The Rear Of a Trailer?
    On a axle like the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop # 7685269 the spindle should be straight up and down off the leaf spring. If your leaf springs are at any kind of angle this would cause the axle to then be angled off the trailers frame. Also if the Spring Seat # TRSS238 was changed and not welded on properly with the axle at the correct angle this would cause the spindle to not be straight up and down.

Since the hub-face and spring-center measurements can vary from trailer to trailer and yours are fairly close to one that we carry (we only carry a few of the very popular options) I wouldn't say that's abnormal.
