Parts Needed to Move the Spring Seat of the Dexter Axle part # 20545I-EZ-60-10


Hello, I have a Carry On trailer. Im in the process of redoing it to work with my Jeep. I have a dexter axle 2K5140 on it now and would like to replace with your Dexter 20545I -E-60-10 I need wider axle to fit wider tires also my spring seat is at 40inch Can I use this axle with the Dexter conversion kit K71-384-00 to make it work? also cam I use the same springs on this axle? Thanks


Helpful Expert Reply:

The axle part # 20545I-EZ-60-10 that you referenced has a 1-3/4 inch diameter and the # K71-384-00 is designed for a 2-3/8 inch axle so that would not work.

What you could use is the # TRSS175 as it is a spring seat confirmed to work on this diameter axle. For a U-bolt kit you would want part # APUBR-10.

You should have no problem using your current leaf springs with this axle as well.
