If both of your inner and outer bearings are # L44649, you most likely have a 2K axle. Depending on your bolt pattern, I recommend the following hubs:

- Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles # AKIHUB-545-2-G-2K (5 on 4-1/2 pattern)
- Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 4 on 4 # 8-91-05UC1 (4 on 4 pattern)

If you need the hub/drum combination, I recommend the following:

- Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 2K Axles - 7" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 # AKHD-545-2-2K (5 on 4-1/2)

We unfortunately do not have any hub/drum assemblies at a 2,000 pound capacity, but we do have the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 2,200-lb Axles - 7" Diameter # 8-173-16UC3 that will do the trick.

If you happen to have different capacity axles, please feel free to respond to this answer with the capacity you have on your axles.

Thanks so much for the photo! Since you have a bolt pattern of 5 on 4-1/2 hub, that eliminates the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 4 on 4 # 8-91-05UC1 and the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 2,200-lb Axles - 7" Diameter # 8-173-16UC3.

Since you already confirmed that you have an inner and outer bearing of # L44649, that leaves the following options (depending on whether you need the hub assembly only or the hub/drum):

- Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles # AKIHUB-545-2-G-2K
- Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 2K Axles - 7" Diameter - 5 on 4-1/2 # AKHD-545-2-2K
