Although we don't offer a 5000 lb axle, we do offer 5200 lb axles that might work for you, depending on the hub face to hub face dimension you're needing.

We offer Dexter axles with an 86-1/2 inch hub face to hub face dimension and 71-1/2 center to center spring seat spacing that could work for you, but you'd need to remove the existing spring seats and tack new ones in place using part # TRSS300 at a 70 inch center.

If an 86-1/2 inch hub face would work for you, we offer the following:

# 8327816 which is the axle beam/spindles only. The axle is complete with brake mounting flanges and the
cross wire for electric brake assemblies.
# 8327816-EB which is the same axle beam that includes brake assemblies and hub/drums with an 8 on 6-1/2
inch bolt pattern.

For an 89 inch hub face:

# 8327820 Dexter axle beam/spindles
# 8327820-EB which is a complete axle with brakes and drums

Spring seats are at 74 inches, would need to be removed and replaced.

For a 95 inch hub face:

# 6340624 Dexter axle beam/spindles
# 6340624-EB complete axle including brakes/drums

Spring seats are at 80 inches, so they'll need to be removed and relocated using replacement spring seat mentioned above.
