Recommended Self-Adjusting Brake Assemblies for 7,000 lb Axles


Researching self adjusting brakes. I have 7000 lb axles with 8 bolt wheels. The Dexter assy says for 5 bolt. What fits?


Expert Reply:

For your 7,000 lb axles with 8 bolt hubs, the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA or the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 7K # 23-464-465 will be a great fit. The 5-bolt they are referring to is the mounting flange on your axle for the brake assemblies. All 7,000 lb axles will have either a 4 bolt (AL-KO Axle) or 5 bolt assembly (all other brands) with 5 being far more common.

If you need new drums, let me know the bearing numbers and I can help from there.
