To replace the axles on your M105 Trailer, you will need to know what dimension is the better fit. We have 7,000 lbs axle with electric brakes and drum assemblies that are 95 inches from hub face to hub face with 80 inch on center spring seats or 94 inch with 79 inch centers. We also have straight no drop or 4 inch drop axles.

Here are your options:

Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 95" # 8327834-EB
Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 8 on 6-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 94" # 8327864-EB
Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - 4" Drop - E-Z Lube - 8 on 6-1/2 - 94" # 8327872-EB
Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - 4" Drop - E-Z Lube - 8 on 6-1/2 - 95" # 8327860-EB

If you don't already have the wiring for the electric brakes, then I recommend wire # 10-2-1 sold by the foot to connect these assemblies to a 7-way trailer connector. To make your connections clean, I recommend the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box # 277-000141 which will give you clean protected connections and a molded trailer plug that will connect to your vehicle. For the 10 gauge brake wire, I recommend heat shrink butt connectors # DW05745-5 on the brake assembly end and ring terminals # 44-5310A at the junction box. The junction box is coded for easy connection and future troubleshooting if needed.

If you have different dimensions, let me know and I'd be happy to assist further.
