The number you referenced means you have a Lippert axle with a 3,500 lb capacity and hub-face to hub face measurement of 93.75 inches and spring-center to spring-center measurement of 77.25 inches. We do not carry any replacement axles of that length but there is a great option for you with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System because it negates the use of axles altogether.

The Timbren axle-less suspension systems are simply bolted or welded so you do not have to worry about finding an axle that meets any specific measurements. They also offer you an improved ride compared to a traditional through-axle because the Timbrens work independently so if there is a bump on one side of the road it won't rattle your entire trailer; this is also true because the Timbrens have progressive springs that absorb shock better than a traditional axle with leaf springs.

For a 3,500 lb capacity you will need the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR3500S05 and for hub and drum assemblies on a boat trailer you would want to use the galvanized Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 8-247-50UC3-EZ.= with hydraulic brakes # AKUBRK-35-D.

I have added links to video reviews of both the Axle-Less suspension system and hub and drum assembly for you to check out.
