Recommended Replacement Axle and Lift For Trailer With #10 Torflex Axle W/ 3" Brackets  


Have a 2017 17foot Casita Spirit Deluxe w/ factory hi lift Dexter Torflex #10 axle. Do you sell an axle spacer/lift kit and a shock kit for this application? Thank you very much,


Expert Reply:

I have a replacement option for you, but there is not a lift kit that will work with your Dexter #10 Torflex axle in your 2017 17' Casita Spirit Deluxe due to it having the 3" high lift brackets.

Instead your best option would be to replace the axle with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 4" Lift Spindle - Regular Tires - 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S06 which will bolt to the frame of your trailer to replace your current axle, and has a built in 4" lift spindle to give you the lift you are looking for.

The Timbren systems use a built in AEON progressive mainspring that does a great job of absorbing road shock and offers a smooth ride. It may be possible to add shocks, but you would need to have the brackets custom fabricated.

The # ASR3500S06 uses the standard 3500lb bearing combination of # L68149 and # L44649 so if that matches the bearing combination of your current axle you will be able to reuse your hub or hub and drum and brakes.

If not you can use idler hub # 84545UC1-EZ, or hub and drum # 84656UC3-EZ and braking assemblies # AKEBRK-35-SA.

I included a few videos on the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
