In order to replace your axle you'll need to look on the tag for the axle (usually located in the middle of the axle) for the weight capacity (if you don't already know it) and then you'll need to measure your hub-face (HF) and spring-center (SC) distances for the axle. I have attached a photo showing how to determine those measurements.

Once you have all of this info then you can choose the correct replacement from our linked selection. For example, the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam # 7359765 has a weight capacity of 3,500 lbs, and has a HF 95" and SC 80" measurements.

You might be able to reach out to the manufacturer and they could help you obtain a replacement axle using only the VIN, but the only way we are able to help you with a replacement axle is with the steps mentioned above.
