Can EZ Lube Hub be Replaced with Dexter Nev-R-Lube Hub without Replacing Axle


Hi, is it possible to change an easy lube system on my traveling trailer to a never lube bearing kit system without changing the axle? Thanks

Dexter Nev-R-Lube hubs such as the part # 8-388-80UC3 are designed to fit Dexter Nev-R-Lube Axles. These hubs use a special cartridge style bearing that is only compatible with the spindles on a Nev-R-Lube Axle. With this in mind you would not be able to change from an EZ Lube hub to a Nev-R-Lube model without replacing the entire axle.

If you are needing to replace the hubs on your trailer I will be happy to recommend a hub and drum assembly that will work well. Please just let me know the axle capacity of your trailer along with the inner and outer bearing numbers that your existing hubs use. I have also attached a link that will take you directly to our selection of hub assemblies that you can look through.
