Are EZ-Lube Axles Only for Marine Boat Trailer Use


Im currently redoing a trailer and i need to replace my axles. I have been searching for new axles and i keep finding them online with spindles that have the grease fittings at the end, dexter,rockwell ect. On the current axles im replacing the spindles had no grease fittings as in picture. Are the axles with spindle fittings i keep finding for marine boat use only?


Expert Reply:

The zerk fitting on the spindles you are describing indicates that those are EZ Lube axles like the # T3584F-EZ-8974. You can use these axles on any trailer, they are not limited to marine boat trailers. The zerk fitting on the spindle allows you to add grease without having to remove everything.

In order to find a replacement axle you will need to know the capacity of your current axle, along with the hub face to hub face measurement. This will allow you to choose the correct replacement. If there is not a replacement available you could also use something like the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR3500S05. This fits any frame width and also replaces the suspension.

If you let me know your axle capacity and measurement I would be happy to help you find the correct replacement. I have also included a link to all of our axles which can be filtered out by length and capacity.
