Expert Answers about Trailer Axles


  • Timbren Axle-Less System Compatible with 5 on 5 Inch Bolt Pattern
  • To get the 5 on 5 bolt pattern, you will need the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb Axles - 5 on 5 - Pre-Greased # 84550BX or the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 10" Diameter - 5 on 5 # 84556UC3-EZ and brake assemblies # AKEBRK-35-SA. These options work with the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension - 4" Lift Spindle - Wide Tires - 2,000 lbs # ASR2KHDS03.

  • Recommended 95 Inch Trailer Axle with 78 Inch Spring Seat Locations
  • For your 95 inch axle we only have 79-1/4 inch or 80 inch spring seats. You can add spring seats to the ones already there, but they are designed for those specific locations by their design. You can choose one like # 7359765 and then weld on spring seats like # TRSS238 at 78 inches on center. Another option is to use an axle-less system like the Timbren # ASR3500S05. This allows you to add both the spindle and the suspension with a simple bolt on installation. If you aren't right...

  • Best Timbren Axle-less Suspension System for Tandom Axle 2,800 lbs Off Road Trailer
  • Thanks for the picture of your trailer and truck. The Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension 4" Lift Spindle - Off-Road Tires item # ASR35HDS02 you were looking at would work with your trailer but it might be a bit excessive as it is rated for 3,500 lbs for each system and you're wanting to add two for a 2,800 lbs trailer. I recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System item # ASR1THDS03. This Timbren axle-less system is comparable as it is rated for off-road tires...

  • 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...

  • Replacement 5200 lb Axle for Sailboat Trailer
  • We have an axle that will work for you. The # 8327820 that you've already looked at measures 89 inches from hub face to hub face, and the spring seats are 74 inches apart, measured center to center. The 1 inch additional axle beam length which works out to 1/2 inch per side won't make any difference. However, you would need to replace the existing spring seats using part # TRSS300 and have them welded into the correct 72 inch center to center dimension to fit your needs, but this would...

  • Recommended Timbren Axle-Less System And Electric Trailer Brakes For M416 Trailer
  • I would be happy to recommend the correct Timbren axle-less system and electric trailer brake setup for the M416 trailer you are rebuilding. Starting with the Timbren system, this is going to depend on how much weight you are planning carrying with the trailer. It looks like most of the M416 trailers weigh roughly 700lbs before accessories, so a 1200lb system should be enough which I recommend the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # ASR1200S03 which is designed for wide...

  • How to Determine Correct Length for Replacement 3,500 lb Axle
  • So there isn't a way to calculate a proper length for a 3,500 lb axle; in order to get the proper replacement axle you will need to know the dimensions of your current axle's hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center. For example the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindle # 7359765 measures 95 inches from hub face to hub face and 80 inches from spring center to spring center, and the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with EZ-Lube Spindles # T3584F-EZ-8974 measures 89 inches...

  • What Wheel and Brake Sizes Work With Timbren Axle-Less System ASR3500S06
  • It is possible the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 4" Lift Spindle - 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S06 will work with your wheels and brakes, but it depends on a couple of factors: the bolt pattern of your wheels and the size of your brake assemblies. The hub and drum that fit this system is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84656UC3-EZ, and let's talk about brakes first. This is a 10" diameter x 2-1/4" wide drum which means those are the size of brakes it will work with,...

  • Replacement for Lippert 3500 Lb Axle
  • You have a Lippert 3500 lb axle with 10 inch brake assemblies/hub drums. 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. This isn't necessarily a big deal, as it's pretty simple to use two replacement spring seats # TRSS238 and to have them tack welded on a 75 inch center. If the existing 80 inch spring seats interfere with the installation,...

  • Replacement 3 Inch Diameter Axle Beam with 95 Inch Hub Face Dimension
  • An axle with a 3 inch diameter axle tube typically has a 5200, 6000 or 7000 lb capacity. The inner and outer wheel bearings would be the determining factor that would tell you the actual capacity. We do have 95 inch axles (hub face to hub face dimension) but none of our offerings have the proper spring seat spacing, so you'd need to add seats in the correct locations. • For a 95 inch 5200 lb axle with spindles compatible with a 25580 inner/LM67048 outer bearing, use # e55GR • For...

  • Replacing Axles on a 2021 Apex Nano Dual Axle Trailer With a Timbren Silent Ride or Axle-Less System
  • A Timbren Axle-Less system or Silent Ride system would definitely upgrade the stock leaf spring set up on any camper or trailer. That being said, there are a couple things to keep in mind when choosing one of these systems.. The Timbren Axle-Less System # ASR5200S01 will replace the axles as well as the leaf springs. This will also give you independent suspension, which will handle nicely when towing, especially over uneven ground. The only caveat with this system, is that it specifically...

I recommend the Dexter Trailer Axle with E-Z Lube Spindles item # 8327816. This axle is 86-1/2" Long with a 5,200 lbs capacity that will replace your Lippert axle. The TruRyde spring seats item # TRSS300 will work well with these axles. Unless your trailer hubs are brand new you should replace both of them and keep the passenger side one around as a spare.

  • Looking For Replacement Trailer Axles With 70 Inch Spring Center and 85 Inch Hub Face Spacing
  • We carry a Dexter 6K axle that comes very close to the measurements you specified. The # 8327826-EB has an 86-1/2 inch hub face to hub face dimension, which means it would only be 3/4 of an inch longer on each side which should still work well for you. The spring seats are 71-1/2 inches apart, but they could easily be removed and new ones could be tacked in place using part # TRSS300 which are sold individually. The # 8327826-EB comes complete with electric brake assemblies and a hub/drum...

While you were looking for 88" hub face to face, this 89" shouldn't cause any issue and is likely the correct size axle that you were needing since 89" is extremely common. Either way, the 1" difference will not be a problem. For a complete axle and electric brake setup with 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern...

  • Parts Needed To Replace 3,500 Lb with 5,200 Lb Trailer Axles
  • Yes, you can replace the 3,500 lb Dexter Axles with 5,200 lb Dexter Axles by simply swapping out the old for the new. That said, you will need new u-bolts as the axle will be larger in diameter (2-3/8" vs. 3"). The bolt pattern will also change from a 5 on 4-1/2" to a 6 on 5-1/2" so you will need new wheels/tires as well. Therefore, you will need new axle tubes, u-bolts, and wheels/tires in order to make the swap but these are all bolt-on parts. For the axles you just need to measure...

  • How to Determine Axle Capacity When No Labels Are Present
  • The only way to determine the capacity if there are no labels on the axle, is to go off the spindle and hub as well as the overall weight of the trailer when loaded. For the spindle, you will want to pull off the hub to get at the inner and outer bearings. If it is a straight spindle, you will have the bearing # L44643, which would have an inner diameter of exactly 1 inch, or you will have the # L44649, which has an inner diameter of 1.063 inches. From there, you will need to determine...

  • Can the Spring Seats On a Dexter 2,200 Lb Axle Be Moved and Re-Welded

This is pretty common practice as manufactures just place the spring seats in a common spot but the customers can move them as needed. That said, you will likely destroy the old ones getting them off so I also recommend getting the Axle Spring Seat part # TRSS175 (2).

They are both 2,000 lb axles that are 72 inches long with spring center dimensions of 58 inches with idler hubs that have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. Most will argue that the Dexter axles are the highest quality so that would be what I would go with if I were you.

  • Can 3,500 lb Axles be Changed to 5,200 lb Axles and Parts Needed
  • The short answer is yes, you can replace your 3,500 lb axle with a 5,200 lb axle. The longer answer is that while you can change to a higher-rated axle, that does not mean your trailer has a higher weight capacity. The reason is, weight ratings are determined by the lowest-rated component, which can be something other than the axle, like the trailer chassis, for example. So you would need to ensure via the trailer manufacturer what the lowest-rated component is. With that said, in order...
