Video Transcript for Trailer Axle Long U-Bolt Mounting Kit Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Redline U-bolt kit for mounting 3500 pound round trailer axles. These are 5 1/2 inch long U-bolts. The part number is APUBR-1.Now, when replacing your axle, it's a really good idea to also replace the U-bolts. These are a pretty cost effective item you can get and ensure that you're going to have excellent, excellent hold with your axle to your springs. You can see this is going on a floor spring pack. The opening on them is going to be 2 3/8 inch, so it's going to fit the outer tube diameter of our axle here.

It comes with the new lower plate, and also four new flange nuts that allows you to secure that end, keep everything locked tight, so you don't have any issues for a very long time.Now we're going to remove the four nuts on the bottom here that hold our axle down, and they hold the U-bolts here. When replacing an axle, generally you're going to replace these as well, just because these can kind of stretch over time. So, if these nuts won't come off, you can also just cut your U-bolts on each side.Now we're going to grab our new U-bolt kit and place these down and around, just like our old U-bolts were, and when we we'll replace the bottom bracket up on the U-bolts we'll see the hole here in the middle. That's meant for that nut to come down through, and then in each position we'll install one of the flange nuts.Now we'll go through and you're evenly going to tighten down our bolt. We'll get them snugged up first and then we can torque them.

For these nuts you'll want to use a 19 millimeter 3/4 inch socket. Notice we're tightening them evenly, but in a crossing pattern.That's going to compete our look at the U-bolt mounting kit for 3500 pound round trailer axles, part number APUBR-1.

I recently replaced my 1/2 ton truck with a 3/4 ton truck. In order to hook up to my existing fifth wheel camper, I had to raise my camper. To do this, my brother and I moved the axles from the top of the leaf springs and attached them under the springs. This kit made it very easy to do this. We torched off the old u bolts and used this set as a replacement. The quality of this kit was very good. Hard to get too excited about u bolts but I would purchase this again if I had to do it all over again. I was able to gain about 5 1/2 inches by flipping the axles. Here is a before and after. 135541

Most older trailers have some really rusted hardware. Despite the info, you don't know how these compare to stuff at the local TSC. But they were a better price. One area that gets very little info, how much do you torque the nuts? Make sure the nuts are threaded about the same distance on the clamps to ensure even pressure on the axle before you torque them. I used a Dexter Axle and they suggest xx foot pounds of torque. I suggest going to the website for your trailer or the axle manufacturer and looking for those specs. 554470

We bought a set of springs for a buddy's tandem axle utility trailer. Had no idea of who made it or spring rates or anything. Went to the Etrailer website, figured it out by dimensions and weight. Website is extremely easy to navigate. Spent a few minutes comparing parts and ordered what looked to be the closest match to ours. They showed up about 3 days later. Perfect match. Bolted right in and worked perfecctly. Fast free shipping for really nice parts. What's not to like. Oh, forgot to add...bargain price. Highly recommend them. 651297

Ask the Experts about this Redline Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension
Do you have a question about this Trailer Leaf Spring Suspension?


  • Trailer Leaf Springs, Hangers, and U-bolts for a 3,500 Pound Axle
  • It does appear that the hanger in the picture has been overloaded or otherwise damaged so replacing them is a good idea. And like you said, since it has to be replaced anyway you could switch to double-eye springs which are more common so parts for them are easier to find. The springs do not have to be the same length but having it close means you won't have to do any math to ensure everything is in the best location for the trailer size and weight. You can use hanger kit # APS4 which...

  • Replacement 26 Inch Leaf Springs, Shackle Straps, And U-Bolts
  • To give you the correct leaf springs, I would need to know the capacity of your axle or what your Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is not just the weight of the trailer itself. This is the loaded capacity of the trailer. We have a few options for 26 inch leaf springs: 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 4,000-lb Trailer Axles - 26" Long # SP-051275 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 2,000-lb Trailer Axles - 26" Long # SP-124275 6-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 4,500-lb Trailer Axles - 26" Long...

  • Recommendation for Upgrading Double-Eye Springs Suspension to Remedy Trailer Lean
  • To replace the 6,000lb leaf springs on your 2014 Grand Design 337, a great option is the Double-Eye 5-Leaf Springs, # SP-111275. These are 25-1/4 inches long, so to confirm they will fit your trailer, it is best to try and measure your current, unloaded leaf springs to assure proper replacement length. Typically, the number of leaves on a suspension system will not have an affect on the setup, especially when looking at leaf springs within the same weight capacity. The difference in the...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Parts For Dual Axle Trailer Complete Rebuild
  • For your trailer rebuild, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - EZ-Lube - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 89" - 3,500 lbs for your tandem axles, # 35545E-ST-EZ-89. You will also want the U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 3,500-lb, Round Trailer Axles - 5-1/2" Long U-Bolts, # APUBR-1. For suspension I suggest the 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 3,500-lb Trailer Axles - 25-1/8" Long, # SP-212275. You will then need a kit with mounts for your equalizers and shackle straps.

  • Trailer Suspension Kit and Leaf Springs Recommendation for a Tandem Axle Boat Trailer 4,600 lbs
  • As long as you are replacing everything (hangers, springs, hardware, equalizer), then yes, you can use our trailer suspension kit, # APT5. In fact, this is the kit that I recommend for your trailer. The hangers must be welded to the trailer. The holes that you see in the top of the hangers are actually for welding, not bolt holes. For the leaf springs, you will be much happier with the ride quality of part # SP-212275 for 3,500 lb axles. The other springs you referenced are for 5,000...

  • Correct Leaf Spring for Trailer with Lippert 3,500 lb Axle
  • Thank you for the photo! I was able to use the serial number on your axle to determine which is the correct replacement leaf spring for your trailer. For this, you are going to want to use the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring part # SP-220275 which is a double eye leaf spring that is 1-3/4" wide, has a 4,000 lb total weight capacity, and a 25-1/4" eye to eye measurement. The measurement you provided of 26" long is correct but the leaf spring needs to be measured while unloaded as it will lengthen...

  • Replacement Hubs and U-Bolt Kit for 3,500 Pound Lippert Axle # LC35212150
  • From my research your axle is a 3,500 pound, 2-3/8 inch diameter axle and since you have a 5 on 5 bolt pattern you likely have bearings # L44649 and # L68149. You'll want to verify this is correct with your current bearings. If this is the case for a hub and drum assembly I recommend # AKHD-550-35-EZ-K which is for E-Z Lube axles with a zerk fitting. If you have standard axles use # AKHD-550-35-K instead. If you only need idler hubs use # AKIHUB-550-35-EZ-K with E-Z Lube axles and...

  • Replacement 3,500 Lb Axle for 1997 Lamar Trailer 16 Foot Long
  • Thank you for these measurements! I would have to concur with you that your best option would be to replace the entire axle. It sounds like you have two 3,500 lb axles with a hub face close to 95" end to end. The hub face is measured from the outer edge of each hub where the wheel would sit (see photo). I recommend you take a look at the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes part # 7359765-EB which has a hub face to hub face measurement of 95" and a spring center to spring center measurement...

  • Axle U-Bolt Kit for Single 2-3/8-Inch Diameter Trailer Axle
  • We have many sizes of round and square axle u-bolt kits that appear on the linked page. These are not rated by weight so you simply want to choose the one to match your axle diameter, which should be 2-3/8-inches. U-bolt kits # APUBR-1 or # CE23002 will do the trick.

  • Torque Specs for U-Bolts with 3,500 Pound 4-Leaf Double-Eye Springs
  • To use with the 4-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 3,500 Pound Trailer Axles # SP-210275 I recommend the U-Bolt Kit # APUBR-1. The manufacturer doesn't list any specified torque specs for this kit but based on the size of the hardware (1/2 inch diameter nuts) you will want to torque them down to about 70 foot pounds. I have attached an installation video that you can also take a look at.

The nearest round axle u-bolt kits we have to your 2-1/2-inch dimension are kits # CE23002 and # APUBR-1 which are for axles with a diameter of 2-3/8-inches. But we do offer a single 2-1/2-inch u-bolt with nuts as part # 175668, the item you referenced.

This is a more common spring length for this capacity, so it will be much easier to find an exact replacement down the line when needed. You can then use the Tandem-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit # APT5.. This kit includes 6 hangers, 2 equalizers, 8 shackle straps, 14 shackle bolts, and 14 locknuts. You will...

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...

I pulled one of these from our warehouse to measure its height and found the actual height to be 4-3/4-inches measured tip to tip; width is 3-inches.

The brake flange-to-flange distance is 82-5/8 inches. The axle has 10 inch x 2-1/4 inch brake drum dimensions and a 5 on 4-1/2 inch wheel bolt pattern. This will accommodate 13 to 15 inch diameter wheels. Based on the measurements you provided, this will work well for you. This axle comes with brakes, hubs, drums, bearings,...

For that I would recommend the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # SP-220275 that you also referenced. For a single axle hanger kit you would want the Single-Axle Trailer Hanger Kit # APS1.

These 3,500 lb axles have the electric brake and hubs installed and also feature the EZ-Lube spindle which makes lubrication easy.

Since mounting hardware is not included with this item you have the options of drilling into your trailer frame to install the two towers with your own hardware or using u-bolts to attach them to your trailer rail, which would avoid the need to drill your trailer.

  • What to Consider When Replacing a 3,000 Pound Single Axle Trailers Leaf Springs
  • If you use a higher rated leaf springs on a lower rated trailer they will work but will cause stiffness in your ride quality. This is due to the trailer not being under the heavier weight therefore less flex of the springs, using a higher rated spring will not increase the capacity of the trailer because the trailer itself cannot support more than the stated 3,000lbs of weight. When replacing leaf springs you will want a new u-bolt kit like # APUBR-1, the correct shackle bolt like #...
