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.

Great service. Tracking info. Is second to none. Very fast shipping. Great communication.

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!

  • Can the Spring Seats Be Moved on the Dexter 3,500 LB Drop Axle
    The Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles part # 8327812 measures 89" long between each hub face and 74" long between each spring center. It is not offered with 89" between each hub face and 70-1/2" long between each spring center because the spring seats can be moved. The spring seats for this axle can be moved to a minimum of 75" apart and a maximum of 71" apart. Since you only need to go in 1/4" more on either side I would say you are fine to move the spring seats on...

  • Is the Dexter Drop Tube Trailer Axle Beam Offered with 64 Inch Hub Face and 3,500 Lb Capacity
    The best option I have for you is the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System part # A35RD545 which has a built-in drop of 4" and comes with idler hubs that have a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. In regards to hub face, this can be adjusted to fit any width. The hub face measurement you are looking for of 64" is very uncommon for this axle capacity so we would not have a Dexter Trailer Axle Beam that matches this.

    A drop axle will lower the trailer trailer deck; each of our drop axles are a 4 inch drop, so that is how much it will lower the deck.

  • Recommended Replacement 5,200 lb Axle with 89 Inch Length
    Traditionally it is not a 5,000 lb axle but rather a 5,200 lb axle. There are two 89 inch hub face to hub face options we carry, they both have 74 inch spring seat centers, but one comes with the electric brakes and hubs and the other is just the axle. If you will use electric brakes, I recommend going with the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 89" - 5,200 lb # 8327820-EB. If you will use hydraulic brakes then I recommend instead using the...

  • Recommendation to Replace Trailer Axle with 70" Spring Center and 85-1/2" Hub Face Length
    I do have a potential option for your trailer, however we do not have any standard axles that match the spring center and hub face lengths on your existing unit. If you don't want to go through a local trailer shop or fabricator to obtain a matching thru axle, I recommend taking a look at the Timbren Axle-Less System instead. These use independent suspension components that will install on any frame width and usually eliminate the need for a thru-axle altogether. Because the progressive-rate...

  • Replacement Axle Option for 92-1/2" Hub Face to Hub Face and 70" From Spring Center to Spring Center
    I'm not seeing any axles that match those specs; they're all just a bit too long.

The closest axle in terms of spring centers is the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 86-1/2" - 6K # 8327826-EB and has 71" spring center to spring center.

  • Looking For Replacement Trailer Axles With 70 Inch Spring Center and 85 Inch Hub Face Spacing
    We carry a Dexter 6K axle that comes very close to the measurements you specified. The # 8327826-EB has an 86-1/2 inch hub face to hub face dimension, which means it would only be 3/4 of an inch longer on each side which should still work well for you. The spring seats are 71-1/2 inches apart, but they could easily be removed and new ones could be tacked in place using part # TRSS300 which are sold individually.

    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.

  • How To Choose Correct 3,500 Lb Axle for Slipper Spring Setup
    In order to determine which axle is correct for your trailer we need to find out what your hub face (HF) and spring center (SC) measurements are.

The most important thing we need to look for is the hub face as the spring center can then be moved (within a range) if we need to.

  • Lowering Boat Trailer Converted to Flat Bed Trailer
    If your trailer already has an over-under kit like # K71-385-00 to put the leaf springs above the axle, then you simply need to remove the kit to put the axle on top of the leaf springs using the factory mounted spring seat on the axle. This will lower the trailer by the diameter of the axle as well as the height of the leaf spring stack. If you need to further lower the trailer, then shorter spring hangers are needed.
