Video Transcript for Review of TruRyde Trailer Spindles - Replacement EZ Lube Spindle - TRU27FR

Michael: Hi there I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a quick look at the replacement BTR E-Z Lube Spindle. This is going to either replace a damaged or broken E-Z Lube Spindle on your trailer, or if you're making your own custom axle, it can work on that as well. The E-Z lube fitting here provides the grease zerk that's going to allow you to grease your bearings easily. So that's a nice little feature there. You can see this does have the mounting flange here.

It's going to allow you to bolt on a brake assembly. It's got the four pre-drilled holes so that you can pass those bolts through easily. This is a weld-on installation, so you can see on the backside here, it's ready to be welded in place on your axle. This is a nice sturdy steel construction. So it should be pretty easy to weld there.

That stub diameter, it's right about one and five sixteenths or just over one and a quarter of an inch.Our overall measurement from end to end, looking at right about. Get this lined up for you. You can see it's just under seven inches. When I measured it a moment ago was able to find level portion here, measured at right about six and 11/16ths of an inch. A little under seven inches there.

As far as the bearings, races and grease seal that work with this, they are not included, but you can find them here at etrailer.com.Because this is a straight spindle, you'll notice that the inner bearing inner diameter and the outer bearing inner diameter are the same. And those numbers that you see there, the L44649, those should be on the bearings that you already have if you are replacing an old spindle. Just a second way of verifying that this is going to work for you. Overall, I think this is going to be a great option for those of you who are seeking a replacement spindle, or like I said, if you're creating a custom axle and you're wanting to add this on, I think this is going to be a great option for you. That's going to complete our look for today.

Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.


Ask the Experts about this TruRyde Trailer Spindles

  • Replacement Spindle for Tow Dolly
    The Lippert Lubed Straight Spindle with Brake Flange # TRU27FR has a stub diameter of 1-5/16" and is designed to fit a 2,500-lb axle. If your tow dolly has those specifications, this spindle will work on your axle. If you're not sure, check the bearings; if your inner and outer bearings are # L44649 , this is the correct spindle. If you've got a different axle and/or different bearings, let me know and we can find the appropriate replacement spindles for you.

  • What Hub and Trailer Wheel/Tire can Fit on Spindle LC142161
    The spindle part # TRU27FR would require a hub designed to fit BTR spindles like the part # AKIHUB-545-2-2K. Then you could use up to a 12 inch diameter wheel and tire combo with a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern like the Kenda 5.30-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel - 5 on 4-1/2 # AM30740 and you'd be set.

  • Can Trailer Spindle Be Mounted Directly to Trailer Frame Instead of Axle
    I do have a potential solution for you, but a standard trailer spindle like the 2,500 pound # TRU27FR you referenced should not be attached directly to the frame. This would eliminate any kind of suspension system so the trailer's ride would be extremely rough, possibly to the point of damaging the spindle or wheel/hub assemblies. Standard trailer spindles like this also just aren't designed to be used in this manner, so it's not something that has been tested in an any way by the manufacturer....

  • Solution for 2,200 lb Axle with Short Spindles to Replace Hubs with 5 Lug Bolt Pattern
    You have the stub length spindles which we don't have replacement hubs for. If you removed the spindle and installed the part # TRU27FR in it's place you'd have ability to install new hubs like what you are looking for with # 8-258-5UC1 that you referenced.

  • Spindle Recommendation for Trailer with 3 Inch Round Axle with 4 on 4 Wheel Bolt Pattern
    Technically, any of our spindles can be welded on the end of your 3 inch diameter axle. However, the 4 on 4 hubs indicate a lower weight capacity. So, if you're wanting to keep the 4 on 4 bolt pattern and reuse your existing wheels, the only option is the BTR E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Brake Flange # TRU27FR. This spindle is designed for 2,500 lb axles and will allow you to use industry standard hubs # 8-173-16UC3. This means that you won't have any issues finding replacement or maintenance...
