The spindles themself are heavy and seem like good products but they were layed loose in box nothing keeping them from getting banged around in the box

I am sorry about the lack of packaging in the box. I hope nothing was damaged. If so, please contact us at 800-298-1624.

  • Replacement Spindle for 7,000 lbs Axle
    We have the #42 E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Flange for 5.2K to 7K Trailer Axles - 2-1/4" Diameter # TRU37FR and the #42 Spindle for 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Trailer Axles - 2-1/4" Diameter # TRU57FR which are both compatible with 7,000 lb axles. Both will measure 4 inches from the grease seal position to the threads. You can see this in the attached video at the 1:42 second mark. The difference between these is the zerk fitting and the brake flange. The spindle dimensions will be identical.

  • Compatibility of Redline Replacement Axle Spindles with Dexter Hubs
    TruRyde Spindles are indeed compatible with Dexter hubs, if the spindle is matched properly with the bearings your hub uses. To find the correct spindle, match the inside diameter of your inner bearing, outer bearing and grease seal to the dimensions of the bearing surface of the spindle, as shown in the photo I provided. You'll also need to match the weight capacity of the spindle with that of the axle.

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Spindle Based on Measurements
    I can tell you how to determine the correct spindle based on your measurements, and what you will need is a digital caliper such as # 301-17068, though the first thing you need to know is the weight rating of your trailer axle. From there, what you need to do is measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings and grease seal ride, along with the length and diameter of your stub. For example, the accompanying diagram shows the measurements of the #42 Spindle for...

  • Which Spindle is Compatible with # AKIHUB-865-7-1-K 7000 lb Trailer Hub
    The # TRU37FR EZ Lube or the # TRU57FR standard spindle is compatible with the # AKIHUB-865-7-1-K hub you mentioned. These spindles are compatible with a 5200, 6000 or 7000 lb capacity axle, the axle capacity will depend on the bearing set used. The hub you referenced uses a 25580/14125A bearing set which is good to 7K.

  • 5-on-4-1/2-Bolt Pattern Hub for Use on Redline 2-1/4-Inch Spindle # TRU57FR
    Selection of a compatible hub for use on the Spindle # TRU57FR requires matching up the bearing set that fits this spindle (25580 inner bearing and LM67048 outer bearing) to the bearings in the hub. We do offer a number of hub kits that use this same bearing set and all can be seen on the link at right. However, none of these has a 3500-lb capacity and none has the required 5-on-4-1/2-inch bolt pattern. All of these hubs use at least 6 lugs. You may find it easier to select a complete...

  • Trailer Spindle, Hub and Drum, and Electric Brakes for a Fabricated Utility Reel Trailer
    Spindle # TRU37FR is the highest capacity spindle we have at 2600 pounds. It is a 2-1/4 inch round stub. The part of the stub before the brake mounting flange is 3 inches but the length including the part on the other side of the flange before it tapers down to a smaller diameter would be 6 inches. Then you could use hub and drum assembly # 8-219-4UC3-EZ which does fit the spindle and it has an 8 on 6-1/2 bolt pattern. For electric brakes you can use # 23-105 for the left and # 23-106...

  • Large Spindle and 8 Lug Hub Assembly For Crane Build
    Our strongest regular spindle is the #42 Spindle, # TRU57FR. This spindle is for a 7000 lb axle and the idler hub assembly is # AKIHUB-865-7-1-K. If you wanted a drum assembly with brakes, you would want the # AKHD-865-7-2-K hub and drum assembly with the # AKEBRK-7L-SA brake assembly. We carry heavier drum and brake assemblies, but this is the largest spindle we carry.

  • Will TruRyde Spindle TRU57FR Fit Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly 42865-KIT
    The TruRyde #42 Spindle # TRU57FR is compatible with the Dexter Trailer Hub Assembly # 42865-KIT. Since the hub uses bearings 25580 and 14125A, whose inner diameters match up to the spindle dimensions, the hub will work on the spindle. Spindles need to be professionally welded on perfectly straight and concentric to ensure you do not have issues with trailer tracking or uneven tire wear.

    I have been unable to locate a spindle that meets the exact specifications that you have on your current spindle. The #42 Spindle # TRU57FR will be the closest that I can find to matching your current spindle. It is 2.25" diameter, rated for 7,000lbs. Overall length is only 11", has a 1.75" inner bearing, 1.25" outer bearing and 1" nut. The spindle includes a new washer, castle nut and cotter pin.

  • Which Trailer Hub Works With the #42 TruRyde Spindle Part # TRU57FR
    I do have an option for you but there is not a trailer hub available that will work with the #42 TruRyde Spindle part # TRU57FR and allow for you to use a wheel with a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern like the Loadstar ST205/75D14 Bias Trailer Tire with 14" Galvanized Wheel part # AM3S450. Therefore, you will need to choose a new wheel/tire to work with the trailer hubs that we do have available for this spindle which use a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern.

  • Capacity of Trailer Axle Spindles # TRU57FR and # TRU34FR
    The only capacities we have for the two spindles you mentioned is the capacity of them if they are used as they are intended on a trailer axle. The part # TRU34FR is for a 3,000 lb axle so it has a 1,500 lb capacity and the # TRU57FR is intended for a 5,000 lb axle so it has a 2,500 lb capacity.

  • Compatibility of AKHD-655-6-K with TRU57FR # 42 Spindles
    The # TRU57FR spindle and # AKHD-655-6-K hub you mentioned are indeed compatible with each other. If you purchase the # AKHD-655-6-K hub, the 25580 and 15123 bearings, races, GS2250DL grease seal, grease cap, and lug nuts are included, so you wouldn't need to pick up the # BK3-100 bearing kit unless you wanted to have some spare parts on hand.

  • What Size Spindle is Needed for a M/H trailer
    The axle spindle you need to order will depend on the weight capacity of your trailer and on the type of spindle (see link) already being used, if you only need to replace one spindle. To figure out which spindle is correct you can use the bearing part numbers, both inner and outer, and the shape and length of the spindle stub on your trailer. The bearing numbers will let you cross reference the correct spindle measurements for your hub. The axle stub shape and length will allow you...

  • Compatibility of TRU67FR Spindle and Dexter 42655UC1 Idler Hub

If you wanted to use the # TRU67FR (AS6000F) spindle, you'd need to use the compatible hub which is part # AH60880FCOMP. This is an agricultural hub which isn't meant for higher speed road use, and has an 8 on 8 bolt pattern which is pretty much relegated to farm equipment. If you need a spindle that's compatible with the # 42655UC1 hub, which has a more commonly...

  • How to Remove a Hub From a Trailer Spindle
    To remove a hub from an axle, you will need to first remove the grease cap on the end of the hub. This will expose the end of the spindle. Once at this point, you will need to see if you have an EZ-Lube spindle, like # TRU77FR, or a standard spindle, like # TRU57FR. If you have the standard spindle, there will be a castle nut threaded onto the end of said spindle that is locking a fairly large washer in place. This will be locked in place by a cotter pin, like # 165649. These will all...
