How To Upgrade to a 5,200 Lb Axles On a Trailer


I have a Dexter axle 241758 that is bent. I am trying to find the specs for replacements. We are wanting to upgrade to 2 5000 lb axles. Can you help?

In order to find the correct replacement axle you have a few options. The first option would be to simply measure the axle you have now and record both the spring center and hub face measurements. The other option would be to look at the axle tag and read the hub face (HF) and spring center (SC) measurements off of this as it should be listed for you here using these aberrations. The final option would be to record the serial number and get in contact with the axle manufacturer. I would be happy to do this for you but the info you have provide is not of the serial number therefore cannot be used for identification.

In regards to upgrading, the most common option in the capacity you are asking for is 5,200 lbs. In order to upgrade to this size you likely need to upgrade hubs and brakes as well. I have attached the options we offer in this capacity below. The hub face measurement is the most important to pay attention to as the spring seats can be moved if needed.

Dexter 5,200 Lb Axle part # 6340624-EB - 95" HF and 80" SC
Dexter 5,200 Lb Axle part # 8327820-EB - 89" HF and 74" SC
Dexter 5,200 Lb Axle part # 8327816-EB - 86-1/2" HF and 71-1/2" SC
