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.

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] 719016

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Axles

Do you have a question about this Trailer Axle?


  • Adding Lift to 3,500 lb Trailer Axle
  • It's not a stupid question, it's a perfectly logical one but you should not flip the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles # 7685269 to get rise as this was not the intended design as it is an underslung axle with spring seats that are intended to be on the underside of the axle. There is a way to add lift to a 3,500 lb axle such as the straight Dexter Trailer Axle Beam # 7359765. What you would use is called an over/under kit, which is commonly referred to as flipping...

  • How To Choose Correct 3,500 Lb Axle for Slipper Spring Setup
  • In order to determine which axle is correct for your trailer we need to find out what your hub face (HF) and spring center (SC) measurements are. If you take a look at the photo I have attached for you that should then help with obtaining the above two measurements. The most important thing we need to look for is the hub face as the spring center can then be moved (within a range) if we need to. I have attached a list of the 3,500 lb axles we offer in the varying hub face and spring center...

  • Recommended Drop Axle for Trailer With 80 Inch Spring Center
  • The best option we have for you is going to be with the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles part # 7685269 which has a 3,500 lb weight capacity. This will allow the tires to extend out past your load and will provide you with the low load height you will need. The spring center spacing on this axle is set at 80" but if this does not match what you have on your trailer now then you can always move them to where you need them with part # TRSS238. The leaf springs will...

  • Can Leaf Springs be Moved to Top of Underslung Axle
  • You can absolutely use the underslung Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles - 95" Long - 3,500 lbs # 7685269 with leaf springs mounted to the top of 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. The Over/Under kit will lift it approximately the same amount as your axle's diameter plus...

  • 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. For a set of leaf spring hangers and leaf springs to use with the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam part # 7685269, I recommend the Single-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit part # APS4 with the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring part # SP-220275.

  • How To Lower a Trailer 3 Inches
  • I am not really sure what the dealership was referring to as a 22 axle but we do have options for you to lower your trailer. The first option if you have a leaf spring axle is an over/under kit like the Dexter Trailer Springs Over-Under Conversion Kit part # K71-384-00 or part # K71-385-00 but this would only work if your leaf springs are over the axle, not under. If your leaf springs are already under the axle then the next best option would be to replace the axle with one that has a drop...

  • Where is Drop Measured on Trailer Axle
  • You measured the drop correctly. It would be from the center of the axle to the center of the spindle. That dimension would be the drop. See picture I attached.

  • Will Axle Flex Under Load
  • 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. Since you said "slightly negative...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Is the Castle Nut and Lock Washer Included with the Dexter Axle Part # 7685269
  • Yes, the castle nut and lock washer for the spindle will be included with the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam part # 7685269. The spring seats and brake flanges are already welded on so you do not have to worry about that. Assuming you have the standard 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern, you can use part # 84545UC1-EZ for idler hubs or part # 23-468-469 and part # 84546UC3-EZ if you have electric brakes.

  • 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.

  • Comparing Amount of Drop of Torflec Axle with a Drop Axle
  • The 10 degree up Torflex axle will have the center of the spindle sitting about 0.31" below the bottom of the frame of your trailer under no load. When it is under a full load it will sit about 1.45" above the bottom of the frame of your trailer. If you are wanting a Torflex axle that sits lower then you need the 22.5 degree which has the center of the spindle sitting about 0.52" above the bottom of your frame under no load. Under a full load that will sit about 1.82" above the bottom...

  • Replacement Drop Axle for Old Horse Trailer with 6 on 5-1/2 Inch Bolt Pattern
  • I would love to help but we do not have any trailer hubs that correspond to the dimensions that you provided. Therefore, the only option we can offer you would be to replace the axle all together. In order to offer a replacement for this we would need to know your spring center and hub face measurements (see photo). If you can provide me with these I can then see if we have an axle suitable for your trailer. For example, the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindle part...

  • 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...

  • How to Mount Leaf Springs to Top of New Boat Trailer Axle
  • While we do have a solution for you, the axles we offer are an underslung design, but you can change that to get the leaf springs mounted to the top of your axle with an over/under kit. First, in regards to the axle, to find the right replacement you will need to know the dimensions of your current axle's hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center; the other thing you need to know is the weight capacity of the axle you need, which should match or exceed the GVWR of your...

  • Is 76" Spring-Center Measurement Abnormal for 95" Wide Trailer Axle
  • That does make sense. We don't have an exact replacement for your application but if you check out the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles # 7685269 you can see that it has 95" hub-face and 80" spring-center measurements. 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. Even though the spring-center of...
