Axle Dimensions

Hub Face and Spring Center Measurements on Standard Trailer Axle

There are multiple ways to measure the length of an axle beam, but the hub-face-to-hub-face and spring-center-to-spring-center lengths are the most accurate. Hub face (A) refers to the length of the axle measured from the base of one wheel stud to the base of the wheel stud on the opposite side of the axle (when hubs are mounted on the beam).


The spring center (B) is the approximate width of your trailer. It is measured from the center of the spring seat on one side of the axle to the center of the seat on the other. This axle beam comes with the spring seats welded on.


If you are replacing your trailer's axle, you should be able to figure out which type you need by determining your trailer's capacity, the bolt pattern of your wheels, the brake type and the aforementioned lengths.


E-Z Lube Spindles Make Lubrication Simple

The E-Z Lube spindles on this axle are meant to work with E-Z Lube-compatible hubs to make lubricating your bearings quick and easy. Each E-Z Lube spindle has a zerk fitting on the end. And every E-Z Lube hub comes with a grease cap that has an easy-to-remove rubber plug. Just pop out the plug on the cap to access the zerk on the spindle. When you inject grease into the zerk with a grease gun, the grease will flow to both the inner and outer bearings of the hub, lubricating the bearings and forcing out old, ineffective grease. Once you see new grease beginning to be pushed out, you know that your bearings are fully lubricated. This means that you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.


Dexters

Dexters are made of high-strength steel and come with spindles and spring seats welded on. The spring seats are attached to the underside of the axle so that the leaf springs (sold separately) can mount beneath the axle. This axle is also built with drop spindles, which will lower the ride height of your trailer to allow for easier loading and unloading.


Each axle is manufactured to create a certain camber angle. This ensures that the angle of the wheels is correct for your towing needs. Because the primary concern when towing is maintaining controlled, in-line movement, each axle is made so that your trailer's tires will run along the pavement evenly, with contact across the width of the tread. The result is excellent straight-line acceleration for steady, in-line tracking. You might notice the bend near the center of the axle; this is what ensures the proper camber angle. Having the center ride a bit higher and the sides of the axle bent lower allows the axle to give just enough to compensate for the load.

I called to confirm fitment and availability. I then place the order on line on Wednesday and the axle showed up Friday evening. You can not beet that! Local suppliers where about $75.00 more and I had to go pick it up an hour each way!

Its has been year and I have had no issues at all with the replacement axle! The dexter axle it replaced was put into service in 1990. I believe this will last just as long!



by:

I received the items in a very timely fashion and in great shape. I torched off the old U bolts and removed the axle. I removed the new spring seats using a cut off wheel in my grinder and moved them inward one inch on each side, then MIG weld the new ones on they lined up perfectly to the old ones. I then installed the new U bolt kit and torqued them down to 65 foot lbs. The old bearings were only one year old and reused them after cleaning. I installed new seals at this time. The brake pads were same age as bearings showing little wear. The old axles were not Dexter axles and rusted from the inside out then broke off by the drop.. I replaced both. Was a pleasant experience and would do it all over again.



by:

Had to cut off the mounts and re-weld since it didn't fit my trailer perfectly. However it was the best option for me and the product was just as described.

The axle has been working great! I am pleased with the purchase.

Delivered right on time, and it was per fect.

I build custom trailers. I have been doing so for 50+ years. etrailer has consistently been the second cheapest supplier of axles, springs, hangers, hubs, and etc. that we have been able to locate. When you see the difference in quality that etrailer has you'll be buying the second cheapest too! These guys only offer one kind of quality - the EXCELLENT kind. Of the 8 or so trailers that I have in the road 24/7; 100% of them were made from etrailer components! Highly recommended!

  • How To Make It So Axle Has Spring Seats On Top Of Axle So Axle Is Underneath Leaf Springs
    I would be happy to help, but we do not offer any axles with the the spring seat mounted on the top of the axle. There is a work around to this but I will need to know what size axle you are needing for your trailer, as I am unable to determine the correct axle based on just the trailer model. You will need to measure your axle from hub face to hub face, spring center to spring center, and determine the axle rating of the axle. To find the axle rating you will need to look on the axle...

  • Recommended Replacement 5,200 lb Axle with 89 Inch Length
    Traditionally it is not a 5,000 lb axle but rather a 5,200 lb axle. There are two 89 inch hub face to hub face options we carry, they both have 74 inch spring seat centers, but one comes with the electric brakes and hubs and the other is just the axle. If you will use electric brakes, I recommend going with the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 89" - 5,200 lb # 8327820-EB. If you will use hydraulic brakes then I recommend instead using the...

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...

    I do have a potential option for your trailer, however we do not have any standard axles that match the spring center and hub face lengths on your existing unit.

  • Can Trailer Brakes be Added to Dexter 3,500 lb Axle with 4 inch Drop
    Yes you can add brakes to trailer axles that have a drop built into them like the Dexter # 8327812 which has a 4 inch drop as the axle has mounting flanges for brake assemblies built in to it. You'd want the Dexter brake assembly set part # 23-468-469 which is a set that includes a left and a right assembly that is self adjusting. For a hub/drum that fits both the axle and assemblies you'd want the part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K which has the standard 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.
