Bearing Kit for Dexter 5200 pound Axle

Question:

I have a new 2020 Liberty Trailer with 5200 Dexter straight ezLube axle. I’d like to get a couple bearing kits as backup. What is the correct part? Thanks.

Thanks for providing a photograph of your trailer axle sticker. I was able to speak with my contact at Dexter Axle and find out the bearing sizes. You need the etrailer # BK3-300 Bearing Kit. This will get you bearings, seals, and races. At this very reasonable price you migt as well get two!

If you don't already have one, a bearing packer makes getting new grease into a bearing much easier and quicker. You might consider the etrailer #PTW1218 Bearing Packer. Finally, have you considered a tool for seating the races? I have trouble getting them to go in evenly by using a hunk of wood and mallet. When I tried the Performance Tools # PTW83020 tool for setting the races I never damaged one again.
