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.

Dexter Axles

Dexter axles 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. The result of this underslung design is a trailer that rides a bit lower for quick and easy 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.

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Axles

  • 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...

  • Continuous Trailer Bearing Failures On Single Wheel
    I am sorry to hear about all the issues you are having with your trailer. Based on what you described, I would lean towards an issue with the spindle rather than the weight capacity of the hubs. The reason being that if your hubs were truly underrated, you would most likely have issues with all of them not just the same spindle. The damage to your spindle is likely not noticeable however, it only takes a small degree off center to cause problems. If the angle at which the spindle lies in...

  • Replacing Lippert 5,200 lb Axle with Dexter 5,200 lb Axle 86.5 Inches Hub Face to Hub Face
    The Lippert 5,200 lb axle you have has a hub face to hub face of 86.5 inches which is identical to the Dexter # 8327816 you referenced, however the 68.5 inch spring seats of your Lippert axle are not identical to the 71.5 inch spring centers of the Dexter axle. They do use the same spindles so the bearings and grease seal will all match. You would simply need to weld spring seats onto the axle at the 68.5 inch on center locations using # TRSS300.

  • Replacement Axle That Measures 86-1/2 Hub Face To Hub Face
    Great news, we do carry replacement trailer axles that measure 86-1/2" hub face to hub face like the one you currently have. You would also want to make sure the replacement axle has the same spring center to spring center measurement as your existing axle and the same weight capacity. For example: the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindles - 86-1/2" Long part # 8327816 measures 86-1/2" hub face to hub face and 71-1/2" spring center to spring center with a 5,200 lb capacity....

  • Will Bent Boat Trailer Frame With New Spindle Have Tire Wear?
    Since you replaced the spindle, if the spindle is aligned properly with the axle, then the axle will be straight under the weight capacity of the axle. If you straighten the tongue and the other part of the bent frame is behind the rear most spring hanger, you should be able to drive straight and not impact the tracking or tire wear. If you don't get it straightened out correctly all the way to that rear spring hanger, then you could absolutely have a tire wear issue or tracking issue...

  • Can Trailer Axle 8327816 Use Hub with Outer Bearing LM67048 and 15123
    Yes, since the inner diameter of the two bearings you mentioned # LM67048 and # 15123 are both 1.25 inches you can use a hub that has either. Basically any 5,200 to 7,000 lb hub will fit as they are designed to fit the number 42 spindle dimensions this axle has.

  • What Causes a 3,500 Lb Axle On Single Axle Trailer To Bend
    If you are under the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) for your trailer then the axle tube should not be bending. If you are and it is bending then there could be other issues but I have not heard of a weight distribution system causing this. The axle tube actually does not need to be rated for the entire weight of the trailer as around 10-15% of this will be carried on the vehicle. That said, you may need to adjust your weight around so that there is 10-15% on the tongue. If you do...

  • Locating Replacement Axle for 1998 Hudson Trailer with Mobile Home Hubs
    You are correct that the closest standard trailer axles we have available to the hub face length you mentioned are 86-1/2" units such as the Dexter 5,200 pound # 8327816 or the 6,000 pound # 8327826. Please keep in mind that when selecting a replacement axle you also need to make sure it matches the capacity of the existing model.

    The best option we have for a trailer with damaged spindle threads is a new axle beam as there isn't any sort of repair kit, the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam part # 8327816 matches what you need although you'd have to move the spring seats part # TRSS300 in a few inches to match what you have now.

  • Do 3,500 lb Trailer Axles and 5,200 lb Axles Use Same Hub/Drums and Brake Assemblies
    The hub/drum/brake assembly components are a totally different size between a 3,500 lb axle and a 5,200 lb axle. You can easily swap to the 5,200 lb axle like the part # 8327816 but you will need new hub/drums like the # 8-201-5UC3-EZ which has a 12 inch diameter (3,500 lb setups are 10 inch), and then for brake assemblies # 23-464-465 for a left and right hand side. This setup will require wheels that have a 6 on 5-1/2 inch bolt pattern which you may or may not already have.

  • How to Determine Fit of 8327816 Replacement Dexter Trailer Axle
    The Dexter Trailer Axle you mentioned, part # 8327816 is not a trailer specific part. If its 5200 lb capacity meets or exceeds the capacity of your current axle and the 86-1/2 inch hub face to hub face and 71-1/2 inch center spring seat to center spring seat measurement match up to what you currently have, the axle will work well. The spring seat dimension isn't horribly important, you can always grind it off and relocate a replacement like # TRSS300 if need be. This axle is compatible...

    Thank you for the information on your Lippert axle. My contact at Lippert advised that they need more information to identify your axle. The number 123322 does not correspond to their serial numbers and might be a general part number. What you want to find is a number starting with '045' or '019', or 'V000' plus more digits, or 'NV' plus six more digits.

  • Does Lippert 5,200 lb Axle and Dexter 5,200 lb Axle Use Same Bearings and Hubs
    Yes, the Dexter axle part # 8327816 that you referenced has the exact same spindle as a Lippert 5,200 lb axle so the hubs and bearings would interchange.

  • Replacing the Axle on a Gooseneck Horse Trailer
    An axle flip kit like part # K71-384-00 will raise the trailer the diameter of the axle plus the height of the leaf spring pack. I do have options for you but rotating the axle to where the bend faces the other direction is not one of them. The bend in the axle will actually straighten out once a load is placed on the trailer and if this was reversed, the axle would lose capacity. Now from this point forward you have two options both of which entail replacing the axle. Since your current...

  • Can 7,000 Pound Hub and Drum with 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern Fit 5,200 Pound Axle
    Dexter hubs # 8-219-4UC3-EZ can fit a 5,200 pound axle, but not as they come. The 5,200 pound axles, like part # 8327816 as an example, use # 25580 and # LM67048 for the inner and outer bearings respectively. The hub uses # 14125A for the outer bearing which has the same inner diameter (1.25 inches) as # LM67048 so that's not an issue. The problem is the grease seal. The hub includes # GS-2125DL for the seal which measures 2.125 inches inner and 3.376 inches outer. The axles need...

I have attached a link that will take you directly to this selection that you can look through if needed.

  • Hub Bolt Pattern and Bearing Compatibility with 5K Trailer Axles
    Your existing 3500-lb hubs could be used on a 5K axle if the spindles on both axles used the same inner and outer bearings. But usually these two different axle capacities mean different bearings with very different dimensions. That means 3500-lb hubs will not fit. Also 5K hubs use the 6-on-5-1/2 wheel bolt pattern. The most common bearings for a 3500-lb axle are # L68149 (inner) and # L44649 (outer) while a 5200-lb axle typically uses bearings # 25580 (inner) and # LM67048 (outer)....
