I recommend the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Idler Hubs - EZ-Lube - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 72" Long - 2,000 lbs # 20545I-EZ-72-15 which has the 2000lb axle rating, 72" hub face to hub face measurement, and 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern hubs you mentioned, but has a spring center to spring center measurement of 58" instead of 58-1/2" that you mentioned.

With how close the spring center measurement is it may work still, if not you will need to remove the current spring seats and replace them with the # TRSS175 which will need to be welded in the correct location.

For U-bolts I recommend the U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 2,000-lb, Round Trailer Axles # APUBR-10.

I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
