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.


Hub Face and Spring Center Measurements on Standard Trailer Axle

Another helpful measurement to have is the flange-to-flange (C) length, which is measured from the outside of one brake flange to the outside of the one opposite. This length may be easy to obtain if you are replacing an axle, but it's important to note that this measurement is not the preferred method for determining which axle will best fit your trailer.


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.


Dexters

Dexters 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. The result of this underslung design is a trailer that rides a bit lower for quick and easy 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.

Great axle. Very pleased with it. I was shipped the wrong axle butt etrailer sent the correct one and I was able to ship the wrong one back later. Got me on the road a little quicker.
Other than that mishap,Ian pleased with the axle and would consider buying from etrailer in the future.

Thanks for your fast service and great product.

Shipping was much faster than expected. Customer service was excellent and a representative reached out to modify my order for faster delivery due to an item being back ordered. A replacement item was selected and everything arrived soon after order confirmation. All items arrived well packaged and exactly as I ordered it. I would definitely order from etrailer again.




by:

Great service! Axle was a perfect fit! Best store for trailer parts. I'm looking for fenders now. Guess where I'm going to buy them. That's right, right here. I suggest everyone do the same and save yourself the headaches of other stores backorder and bad customer service!

very nice product and perfect fit thank you

Items and the shipping was excellent. Very impressed.

Wiring running throught the axle is very nice. Overall very satisfied. Will be ordering another to replace my other axle soon

This was a brand new axle. It went right in place just as advertised. We put our hubs on and we are back in business.

I needed to replace a bent axle on my 16 ft dual axle utility trailer. The axle from etrailer.com was OEM and was a perfect fit. I've bought from etrailer.com before and will continue to do so. They offer great products at competitive price points with fast shipping and great customer service.


Comments
Thanks for the follow up.....just another example of etrailer.coms outstanding customer service. And, what a coincidence,......I was just on your website in the last couple of days looking at stuff for another trailer I plan to purchase in the next few weeks.BTW....I stand by my initial reviews....outstanding products, fair pricing, fast shipping, and outstanding customer service.
Tony H - 03/11/2018


by:

very good axle at the right price fast shipping




by:

The spring center spacing was 74" as advertised. However, the information page made it sound like using this for my 74.5" spring spacing would be no big deal. I did manage to get it to fit but I will be watching this closely. There should be a statement on all trailer axles that stresses the importance of proper spring center distance or explain what is all involved in changing the spring mounting seat location.




by:

The axle was great, but I SCREWED UP the leaf springs.They understood my deli ma and sent out the springs I should have ordered. Most pleasant people I have ever dealt with.
Everything ships quick

How sweet it is

The axle I purchased is still getting the job done !! Thanks for making a quality product.

Good product as advertised.




by:

Super easy to swap out with the old axle, the bearings fit the spindles perfect. The spring perches and the axle itself were straight, would and will purchase from again!




by:

Great service and fast delivery! I have always had great service from e trailer!




by:

Ordering was quick and easy. The new axle was a direct fit and went in with easy. Had the trailer back in service within hours of the axle being delivered.




by:

I was surprised at how easy this whole process was through etrailer. I was looking around locally for the same axle and found several of the same axle but all were around $200. I decided the next morning I would go get one locally, but then checked here and found axle a lot cheaper here. It was a Sunday night when I placed order and didn’t expect any response on my order till Monday but to my surprise about 1 hour later I got a email saying my order was processing and then a little while later another email saying was ready to ship, all on Sunday night. Order cane in the exact day they said it would. Will definitely be using etrailer for all my trailer items now. Easier than amazon. Thank you etrailer.

  • Replacement 3500-lb Trailer Axle for 2007 Spree by KZ Tandem Trailer
    If your KZ Spree trailer's 3500-lb-rated axles are bent from damage or from overloading them beyond their weight capacity then they should be replaced. This will not only restore the trailer's handling but it will also prevent continued issues with uneven tire wear. Usually an axle that was bent from being overloaded will result in more wear on the inside edges of the tires. A new axle has a light upward bend that levels out under load. Our two 3500-lb-rated axles without hubs are displayed...

  • Difference Between Dexter 3,500 lb Trailer Axles, EZ Lube vs. non EZ Lube
    Brake flanges on 3,500 lb axles are going to be the exact same between a Dexter axle and Lippert but sometimes the Al Ko options are different. I believe you are asking about the price difference between the Dexter 3,500 lb axles part # T3584F-8974 and # T3584F-EZ-8974 though which that comes down to the spindle style. The more expensive EZ lube spindle axle has a grease fitting on the end of it that allows you to easily pump grease into it whereas the other option does not and requires...

  • Trailer Tires Showing Excessive Wear on Inside Edges of Tread
    Typically a trailer axle will have some camber in it - some bend - such that when it is not loaded the tops of the wheels bow outward slightly, with the outside edges of the tire treads making first contact with the ground. This allows that when the trailer is loaded with weight the axle will be pushed downward to a flatter position with the tire treads level on the ground. Please refer to the linked photo showing an axle and its camber. With your trailer unloaded look at it from the rear...

If you're wanting to reuse your current hubs, I'd need to know the inner and outer bearing reference numbers, and whether the trailer has brakes. I'll...

  • Does Two Axles Rated for 7,000 lbs Equal 14,000 lbs Capacity?
    Yes, if your trailer has two axles that are rated for 7,000 lbs then they would have a 14,000 lb capacity. However, there should be an identifying stamp somewhere on the trailer that has its capacity on it. You would need to follow whatever the lowest rated component on your trailer is in terms of capacity.

  • Castle Nut Torque Spec for Trailer Axle
    When installing the castle nut on the end of the spindle, there is no specific torque rating. The nut is ran down until there is no side to side play in the hub, and then backed off to the next notch in the castle nut so the retainer can secure the nut. Over-tightening the castle nut can damage the bearings, races and spindle. If you click on the video link I provided, and fast forward to the 4:45 minute mark, you can see the procedure.

    Based on my research, it looks like your Clipper 16RBD trailer should have a 3,500 pound axle, however I do recommend verifying this. In order to pick out a replacement axle, you will also need to measure the hub-face-to-hub-face length on the existing unit, along with the spring-center-to-spring-center length.

  • Can Tandem Axle Trailer Have Axles With Two Different Weight Capacities?
    It is a good idea for both axles on a tandem axle trailer to have the same rating. Even if the 6,000 lb capacity of your axles is rated high enough for your trailer, if you have a load heavier than 2,500 lbs sitting over your 2,500 lb rated axle it will not be able to handle it. I recommend replacing that axle with one rated for 3,500 lbs such as # T3584F-8974. This axle measures 89" from hub face to hub face and 74" from spring center to spring center. You will need to know those two...

  • Can Wires on Replacement Axle be Used for Electric Brakes
    The brown wires on the axle # T3584F-8974 can be used to cross your electric brake power from one side to the other. You'll need to get power and ground from the trailer's 7-way to one brake assembly and then splice in the brown wires on the axle, one to power and one to ground. Then connect each of the wires to the brake on the other side of the axle. The brown wires can also be used for brake lights instead of the brakes themselves in the same fashion but not both.
