We have 7K options but they not a traditional straight axle. They are more like torsion axles that have their own built-in suspension and do not require an axle beam between the 2 sides. This design would then provide independent suspension!

The most basic option is # TASR7KS01. It has brake mounting flanges but no hubs or drums. This allows you to select the hubs/drums and brakes you want. They do have the grease fitting for EZ lube hubs but you don't have to use EZ lube hubs. You can use a regular hub and manually pack the bearings if you want, # 42866UC3.

For brakes, our house brand etrailer brakes are a great value and high quality; even higher than some of the well known brands! We have manual adjust brakes with dacromet coating (for superior corrosion resistance) # AKEBRK-7L-D and # AKEBRK-7R-D. And we have some self-adjusting assemblies without dacromet, # AKEBRK-7L-SA and # AKEBRK-7R-SA.

We can special order straight axles for local customers only but if you wanted to go that route you should be able to order one to your specifications at a local tractor/trailer supply store. The measurements appear to be 62 inches from spring seat center to spring seat center and 70 inches from hub face to hub face but I recommend measuring to be sure. Those are the measurements that will be needed to order a new axle.
