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 (when hubs are mounted on the beam).


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.

I received the items in a very timely fashion and in great shape. I torched off the old U bolts and removed the axle. I removed the new spring seats using a cut off wheel in my grinder and moved them inward one inch on each side, then MIG weld the new ones on they lined up perfectly to the old ones. I then installed the new U bolt kit and torqued them down to 65 foot lbs. The old bearings were only one year old and reused them after cleaning. I installed new seals at this time. The brake pads were same age as bearings showing little wear. The old axles were not Dexter axles and rusted from the inside out then broke off by the drop.. I replaced both. Was a pleasant experience and would do it all over again.

I build custom trailers. I have been doing so for 50+ years. etrailer has consistently been the second cheapest supplier of axles, springs, hangers, hubs, and etc. that we have been able to locate. When you see the difference in quality that etrailer has you'll be buying the second cheapest too! These guys only offer one kind of quality - the EXCELLENT kind. Of the 8 or so trailers that I have in the road 24/7; 100% of them were made from etrailer components! Highly recommended!

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle in Trailer Axles


With Alex's assistance and knowledge of my trailer requirements, I installed two 3500 lb axles. These axles are superior to any others that I was shopping for, and with a combined GVW of 7,000 lbs my trailer is now suited for any medium sized load.

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle in Trailer Axles


Adam was extremely helpful! After searching long and hard, the closest I could find was this axle of 80” spring centers. Mine were only 76” so Adam set me up with a pair of spring seats so I could carefully cut of the factory ones, grind smooth and weld the new seats at the 76” I needed to fit my trailer. After repainting, it looked like factory again. All others parts, brake assemblies, and drum/hub assemblies with bearings fit perfect!

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle in Trailer Axles


Trying to update my trailers 5100 lb. Lippert axles with Dexter 6000 lb. axles. Dexter’s are very well made wished I didn’t have to send them back thus why the 4 stars. Dexters 74 inch center to center are not a direct replacement for Lippert. It’s very hard to get the hub face measurements by yourself so I assumed it would work unfortunately Lipperts are few inches wider. Customer service was great about letting me ship these items back. Great folks to deal with!

One word, FANTASTIC! The #5200lbs Dexter axle was a perfect fit period! The axle came with all factory stickers and serial numbers to further identify the correct part. Shipped in a good time given that the part wasn’t in stock but the wait was worth while. The price and free shipping where the deciding, the perfect fit was very gratifying as well I highly recommend etrailer.com

Review from a similar EZ Lube Axle in Trailer Axles


After a rust related axle failure, my equipment trailer was down. (If you roll in the rust belt, check your axles near where the brake wire goes through) After checking my local source, I was told there was a long lead time for new axles due to the pandemic. I was so happy to find etrailer. They had the exact axles I needed. After I pulled the axles I realized I also needed hardware and u-bolts. Everything arrived ahead of schedule, allowing me to get back up and running quickly. Thank you etrailer. You are a valuable resource.

etrailer had the best prices and excellent customer service, Thanks Ian! Shipping was fast and free to boot. I bent the front axle on my in-laws fifth wheel camper and this axle fit the bill. I had to order a set of spring seats and weld them to the opposite sides. The original seats were at 68.5 " centers and that configuration was unavailable anywhere.

Specs. matched exact to the broken axle and was easy to install. I was surprised that the axle was pre-wired although it was not replacement of the brake axle on my trailer. Hub fit nicely and trailer is now ready for the next haul job. Delivery was as promised.

  • Is the Weight of the Wheels and Tires Part of the Capacity of the Dexter Axle Beam with 4" Drop
    The axle capacity of something like the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles - 89" Long - 3,500 lbs # 8327812 refers to the amount of weight that it can carry; the weight of the tires, wheel, etc. are not part of the load and actually also carry weight, so they're not considered in the equation when it comes to the axle. This axle is 89" from hub face to hub face and 74" between the centers of the spring seats, which would be the important measurements to match up with...

That said, once the wheel and tire are on the measurement is going to be different depending the sizes of those.

  • Can Spring Seat of Axle be Moved a Couple Inches to Allow Axle to Fit on Trailer
    You can move spring seats by having them cut off and rewelded in the correct location so the Dexter axle part # 8327812-EB that you referenced would work for you as long as you'd be willing to do that step. With this axle being 1 inch shorter in length than what you have now you'd have 1/2 an inch less clearance from the inside of the tire sidewall to the frame of the trailer.

This can cause premature wear and isn't recommended. It will be better to either have a local trailer supply store order an axle to your specifications, or order the # 8327812-EB with qty.2 of the 2-3/8" Axle Spring Seat # TRSS238.
