Expert Answers about Trailer Axles


  • Should 3,500 lb or 5,200 lb Timbren Axle-Less System be Used for over 3,600 lbs of Loaded Trailer
  • Since your axle will ultimately be under the weight of your trailer and it's contents you definitely need to make sure that it is rated for more than what you will be carrying. You need to go with the 5,200 lb weight capacity. For this we have the Straight Spindle # ASR5200S01, 4" Lift Spindle # TASR5200S03, and 4" Drop Spindle # ASR5200S04. This is compatible with the idler hub # 8-213-5UC1-EZ or the hub and drum assembly # 8-201-5UC3-EZ. I recommend going with the hub and drum assembly...

  • 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 Replacement Axles for Old Dexter Axle #11 5,200 lb Torsion Axles
  • I reached out to my contact at Dexter Axle who said that based off of the numbers you sent in it sounds like you have a #11 Torsion axle rated for 5,200 lbs that is on a Haulmark Trailer manufactured back in 2001 (at least the axle was). Your axle should use 6 lug hubs with EZ-Lube spindles and that it has a 95" hub-face measurement with a 75-3/4" outside bracket measurement (which would be equivalent to spring-center). The closest thing that we have to this is the Dexter Trailer Axle...

  • 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...

  • Hubs with 5 on 5 Bolt Pattern that Will Fit a Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System
  • There are Timbren axle-less suspension systems that do not come with hubs so that you could add your own such as # AKIHUB-550-35-EZ-K. But the hubs with 5 on 5 bolt patterns that would also fit a Timbren system only accept up to 15 inch wheels. The other issue is that vehicle wheels are not meant to be used on trailers and often have an offset (mounting surface of wheel not in the dead center of the wheel) whereas most trailers take wheels with a zero offset. With that said the hub listed...

  • Is There a Timbren Axle Less Kit Setup that Fits Jeep Wheel Bolt Pattern 5 on 5 inch
  • We have to tell you that you shouldn't use Jeep wheels on a trailer as they weren't intended for use on a trailer. That said we know people do this all the time so you'd probably be fine. We've seen people use the Timbren Axle Less kits with Jeep Wheels too. Part of why the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System with Hubs # A12WS545 is for "off road" tires is for this purpose so it's physically possible. The Jeep wheel bolt pattern is 5 on 5 inch like what the part # 84550BX has....

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 Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles part # 8327812 measures 89" long between each hub face and 74" long between each spring center. It is not offered with 89" between each hub face and 70-1/2" long between each spring center because the spring seats can be moved. The spring seats for this axle can be moved to a minimum of 75" apart and a maximum of 71" apart. Since you only need to go in 1/4" more on either side I would say you are fine to move the spring seats on...

  • Changing 3,500 Pound Trailer Axles to 5,200 Pound Axles
  • The first thing to consider is if the axle(s) are actually bent. Trailer axles have a bow in them so they are higher at the center than at the ends. When under load the axles straighten out some. That is part of how they get their capacities. If the axles are bent from damage then that is another story. Like you said the 5,200 pound axles that we have include spring seats that are on the bottoms of the axles. In order to have the spring stacks on top of the axles all you would need...

  • Which Hubs Fit the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # TASR35HDS06 with 2" Lift
  • The hubs that fit the Timbren Heavy-Duty Axle-Less Trailer Suspension # TASR35HDS06 use inner bearing # 25580, outer bearing # 15123, and a grease seal with a 2-1/4" inner diameter. For regular hub use part # AKIHUB-655-6-EZ-K but if you are wanting to incorporate brakes then you want hub and drum part # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K with the brakes # AKEBRK-7-SA for electric or # AKFBBRK-7 for hydraulic.

  • Is it Okay to Use Two Axles of Different Capacities on a Tandem Axle Trailer

Using a higher rated axle isn't recommended as it won't change the load bearing capacity of the trailer. The suspension...
