Axle Dimensions

Hub Face and Spring Center Measurements on Standard Trailer Axle

There are multiple ways to measure the length of an axle beam, but the hub-face-to-hub-face and spring-center-to-spring-center lengths are the most accurate. Hub face (A) refers to the length of the axle measured from the base of one wheel stud to the base of the wheel stud on the opposite side of the axle.


The spring center (B) is the approximate width of your trailer. It is measured from the center of the spring seat on one side of the axle to the center of the seat on the other. This axle beam comes with the spring seats welded on.


If you are replacing your trailer's axle, you should be able to figure out which type you need by determining your trailer's capacity, the bolt pattern of your wheels, the brake type and the aforementioned lengths.


E-Z Lube Spindles Make Lubrication Simple

The E-Z Lube spindles on this axle are meant to work with E-Z Lube-compatible hubs to make lubricating your bearings quick and easy. Each E-Z Lube spindle has a zerk fitting on the end. And every E-Z Lube hub comes with a grease cap that has an easy-to-remove rubber plug. Just pop out the plug on the cap to access the zerk on the spindle. When you inject grease into the zerk with a grease gun, the grease will flow to both the inner and outer bearings of the hub, lubricating the bearings and forcing out old, ineffective grease. Once you see new grease beginning to be pushed out, you know that your bearings are fully lubricated. This means that you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.


Dexter Axles

Dexter axles are made of high-strength steel and come with spindles and spring seats welded on. The spring seats are attached to the underside of the axle so that the leaf springs (sold separately) can mount beneath the axle. This axle is also built with drop spindles, which will lower the ride height of your trailer to allow for easier loading and unloading.


Each axle is manufactured to create a certain camber angle. This ensures that the angle of the wheels is correct for your towing needs. Because the primary concern when towing is maintaining controlled, in-line movement, each axle is made so that your trailer's tires will run along the pavement evenly, with contact across the width of the tread. The result is excellent straight-line acceleration for steady, in-line tracking. You might notice the bend near the center of the axle; this is what ensures the proper camber angle. Having the center ride a bit higher and the sides of the axle bent lower allows the axle to give just enough to compensate for the load.


Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.


Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)


Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)


Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Axles - Leaf Spring Suspension - 7685269-EB

Today, we're going to take a look at the Dexter 95 inch long, E-Z lube, 3,500 pound trailer axle with the electric brakes five on four and a half inch bolt pattern and a four-inch drop. Now this axle beam will act as part of your trailer suspension system. It will replace an axle that's already on your trailer, and you can even fabricate a suspension to fit your application. It is a high strength steel construction. Now this axle is the underslung design. And by that, I mean the spring seats right here that your leaf Springs attached to these are welded to the underside of the axle for mounting your leaf springs.

So the spring seats and the spindles are all welded onto this axle. These axles are cambered, so that there's a bow in the axle right in the middle here. And that's until the weight is put on the axle, all cambered axle should be mounted with that center bow facing up.And basically that bend in the axle creates a zero camber angle for even road to tread contact across the width of your trailer tires. So that'll give you a best for straight line acceleration and steady control towing. These axles, they do use four inch drop, easy lube spindles.

So there is a four inch drop right here, and that lowered axle beam will provide a lower deck high for easier loading and unloading of your trailer. They are easy lube spindles. And by that, I mean, they have these built-in grease cert fittings on the end of the spindle, and that allows you to attach a grease gun to it. And you could put grease into your bearings without having to disassemble the whole hub and drum assembly. They do use electric brakes.

So we've installed these brakes just to show you what they look like installed.They're very easy to install. It does require no actuator hydraulic lines with electric brakes. All you have is two wires that you got to connect to a brake feed. And the other one to a ground comes with the adjuster plugs already installed the mounting bolts. All the hardware included.

These are cast out hubs and drums. They're very sturdy and durable. The drum size is 10 inch diameter by two and a quarter inches wide. And it does include all the parts you need, includes the inner and outer bearings. The bearing races, the grease seals, the grease caps, the wheel studs are all here. The lug nuts, and they even include a tube of marine grade wheel bearing grease to be able to grease your bearings. This part is made in the USA specs. Again, the weight capacity is 3,500 pounds. Now the two critical measurements on an axle on the length of it is the hub face to hub face length.And what that's measured is your hub face would be right here. So right where your wheel studs are the face of the hub. If you've measured from here all the way across to the hub face on the other side of the 95 inches, and the other measurement is the spring center to spring center length. So right where your spring seats are here to measure from the center of this spring seat right here, all the way over to the center of that spring seat, that's going to be 80 inches at roughly gives you the trailer with length also, or with the spindle drop on this as four inches.So you can see from the center here to where the axle is, it's about four inch drop the axle tubing, the outer diameter is two and three eights inches. We mentioned the bolt pattern. This is a five on four and a half inch bolt pattern wheel studs are a half inch and the wheel size that will fit on this is 13 inches up to 15 inches, but that should do it for the review on the Dexter 95 inch long, E-Z lube 3,500 pound trailer axle with electric brakes, five on four and a half inch bolt pattern and a four-inch drop..

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


I ordered these August 1st and they just arrived 4 1/2 months later. I don't blame Etrailer for that. It's just the way things were with supply since then. Etrailer kept me updated as things changed. Since I live in Maine and will have to install them outside I won't be doing it until spring. I have checked everything over though and the quality looks excellent. I have never had any problem with anything from Etrailer. This package deal was at a great price and includes everything except the U bolt mounting kit which I bought separately.

So far so good! Axle was not a direct fit even though it was supposed to be. We had to relocate a couple of the mounts for suspension. Other than the trailer rides great, better than ever.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


Installed a yr ago. Perfect product.
One
thing for me though....
I had to buy different fenders because I bought better tires and rims for this new axle which turned out to be slightly wider.
So the original fender would have cut into the tires.
I got everything from etrailer. Axle with brakes fully assembled, controller, fenders, wire harness, connections tires, time and more...and couldn't be happier with cust service, pricing and availability.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


Great high quality axles! I installed two of these on a boat trailer with one brake and one idler hub. It was a rebuild from single to dual axles. All the parts were well organized and packaged well and free shipping- thanks etrailer! Good service and value all around. I hauled the boat about 100 miles today and it all works perfectly. A vast improvement in performance.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


I purchased this to replace a bent idler axle on an older Pequea utility trailer. I figured it made sense to upgrade to an axle with brakes while I was at it - and I was rewiring the trailer anyway so adding brake wires was no big deal as part of that project.

Installation was simple. I was a little worried about assembling the brakes and bearings just because I hadn't done it before, but I watched some videos and it was very easy. I've put around 1000 miles on it in the year I've had it and it's held up great so far.

I purchased an axle from a farm store and it was cheap and cheap. This Dexter axle is American made and trailer makes it easy by delivering it to your door and providing step by step videos for installation! Save your self time and money and buy this axle from etrailer. Mine arrived in just two days! Always fast and reasonably priced!

Still an awesome axle! I haul a lot of heavy loads and this axle never shows any signs of stress. Bearings are still like new and the shaft housing is still rust free!

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle w Brakes in Trailer Axles


I purchased these axles and brakes to replace the old axles on my car hauler. Everything went smoothly with this order. I received my axle and hubs much faster than I anticipated. The parts were well packaged and everything is exactly as I ordered it. I had never installed hubs on trailer axles but after watching one of etrailer's instructional videos I had both sides of the idler axle done in less than 30 minutes. I had similar results on the axle that I put electric brakes on as well. Dexter axles with the EZ-Lube spindles are well worth the money. Bottom line I couldn't be happier with the products and service.

  • 3,500 lb Axle Replacement for 2013 Neo Snowmobile Trailer
    The Dexter trailer with 4 inch drop that you referenced # 7685269-EB seemingly is the correct axle but you need to verify the hub face to hub face dimension as well. If that dimension is 95 inches this is the correct axle since this has 80 inches between spring seats and has the 4 inch drop you need as well.
