The two relevant dimensions when replacing a trailer axle is the hub face to hub face of the existing axle and the center to center spring seat dimension.

Are you sure about that spring seat center to center distance? The closest axles we offer are a 5200 or a 6000 lb axle with a 71-1/2 spring seat center to center dimension. All have a hub face to hub face dimension of 86-1/2 inches. I've provided a diagram showing these dimensions.

We have a total of 4 axles available with these dimensions. All feature EZ Lube spindles that are compatible with a . The two 5200 lb axles are part # 8327816 which is just the axle. Spindle nuts and retaining washers are included. Part # 8327816-EB includes the axle, spindle nuts and washers, and brake hub/drums. The hub/drums include the bearings, races, grease seals, grease caps, wheel studs and lug nuts are included. The hub is a 6 lug on a 5-1/2 inch bolt circle. The 12 x 2 brake assemblies are also included. These two axles are compatible with a 25580 inner bearing and an LM67048 outer bearing.

The two 6000 lb axles are just as described above but with a higher weight capacity. Part # 8327826 is the axle only, and # 8327826-EB includes the axle, hub drums, brake assemblies etc. as mentioned above. These axles are compatible with a 25580 inner and a 15123 outer bearing.
