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.

Perfect fit, nice axle and fast delivery. I liked it so much I ordered another a day later to replace the front axle. My 30 yr old tandem trailer's axle broke at the wheel, so I went to a local store which doesn't stock them anymore. Could of ordered a so so axle for $94 + $28 shipping and wait 2 weeks but needed it fast. I went to a major trailer sales & service shop and told "maybe we could get one for $250" with no call back. I decided to check out etrailer and was surprised to see Dexter axles that fit my trailer for $140 with FREE shipping in 3-4 days! Ordered Sat. night, got it Wednesday afternoon, and installed it (with brakes) in an hour. Only problem I had was determining if spindles would fit my hubs. They stated "1/16th spindle" and must be industry talk but french to me. So I had to look up bearing #'s they listed to check bearing sizes to make sure they fit my hubs. A little more time but not a deal breaker. The best part was the huge difference in ride with just one new axle. Always had bouncing loaded or not, but now with just one axle the ride is smoother no load and with my 4000 lb tractor on it. Can't wait to get the 2nd axle on that arrived today. First two pics show the difference between the old straight axle and the new dexter axle. The third is a pic of my 2nd axle, oh well. Etrailer is my new go to place for trailer parts. I have 7 trailers.

Axle arrived in perfect condition, was also an exact fit for my Top Hat Trailer.
Your staff was of great help finding my right axle.
I would recommend etrailer to everyone.

Axle is working out great. Easy to install, fit perfectly.



by:

Part was a great fit & delivery was on time and properly packaged.
Definitely recommend & I will use this company if future trailer parts are needed.



by:

I was pressed for time to deliver a car and this axle was advertised to be delivered on Tuesday. Then, tracking changed delivery to Wednesday. Still, it was timely enough, barely. The axle looked perfect except, there weren’t any spring perches! The axle was ordered with perches. I spoke with a delightful young lady, if that is not woke I don’t care. She remedied the situation, HOPEFULLY.



by:

The video was great after i had axle in place,would appreciate a little info with axle which way wires face if you need them,how is axle nut held in place.



by:

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.



by:

I have been dealing with etrailer for years. They are great. I would give them five stars for their customer service. The Dexter axle is the reason for the four stars only issue I have with it is they don't use heavy enough wire through the axle for the brakes. The connections always burn through once they get hot. I end up running a piece of number 14 wire over the axle to connect the brakes



by:

Had an axle go out on one of my trailers during my busiest season, local dealers wanted way more for the axle and most didn’t have it in stock. They also wanted to charge me to measure it and weld spring brackets on. I found etrailer just by googling, called to ask a couple questions and sherry the representative answered everything perfectly and even took my order over the phone to speed up the process. She told me 3-4 days for delivery, maybe even until
Monday and by my complete surprise the axle was delivered in under 24 hours of me placing the order. I couldn’t be happier and definitely recommend etrailer!



by:

Does a wonderful job…great price…always shipped on time…can’t say enough about etrailer…



by:

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.

The axle is performing very well after a year of use. Been on several long trips and have had no issues.

Perfect fit, no problems at all.

Great service as always out of etrailer. I ordered 2 new axles for my car carrier, great specs on your webpage made for a perfect match. Items arrived in 3 days, heavily wrapped and will add that the end of the axles which could rust if not installed soon were covered in grease, a nice touch to insure no damage. Thanks as always for having a great source for all things trailers!...

Thanks again for a great product. Packaged well, arrived on time.



by: 08/17/2022

etrailer customer service for returns and their products as a whole are third rate at best. Every product arrives damaged from terrible packaging and handling by etrailer. Customer service sometimes responds and their return policy is garbage at best. buy elsewhere



by:

I'm very pleased with all of my purchases from eTrailer. Everything has seemed to be of excellent quality and value. The wiring kits and directions were very well thought out and one of the projects I completed would not have been possible had it not been for the excellent videos on the website.

I'm an eTrailer customer for life!

  • 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...

  • Replacement Axle for 1981 Wells Cargo Enclosed Trailer That Shows Uneven Tire Wear
    Uneven tire wear can indicate any of several problem conditions. If a tire tread surface wears on its outside edges more than it does in the middle of the tread then this generally indicates under-inflation. If it wears more in the middle than on the sides this indicates over-inflation. If the two tires on an axle both have more wear on the inside edges of the tread then this usually signals that the trailer has been overloaded. A bent spindle is of course another possibility.

  • What Size Axles are On a 2001 CarMate 14 Foot Enclosed Trailer?
    Unfortunately I am not able to tell what axles you have on your trailer without more information from you. The easiest way to tell a capacity is by simply measuring the diameter, but the more accurate option is to pull off one of your hubs and get the bearing numbers from your inner and outer bearings as well as the seal. I've attached an article to assist in getting that information. Typical Axle Diameters Based on Axle Capacity: 1,000-lb - 2,000-lb Axles: 1-1/2" - 1-3/4" diameter 3,500-lb...

  • Is Trailer Axle Bow Normal When Loaded
    You are correct that trailer axles feature an upward bow in them to compensate for the trailer's loaded weight. As more weight is put onto the trailer this bow will indeed flatten out (so the axle profile will look different when the trailer is completely empty compared to when it's fully loaded for a trip). If the axle is flat this doesn't necessarily mean that it's overloaded. It's more likely that it's just supporting around the maximum weight that it's designed to handle. It's always...

  • Can Trailer Hubs Be Shimmed to Adjust Camber
    If you are talking about adjusting the camber of your trailer this can be done by a professional at a trailer alignment shop. There's really no way to shim hubs as they are only held on by the one spindle nut at the end of each axle. The 4 bolt mounting flange you are referring to is for the brake assemblies to mount onto. You would not want to shim this flange as the assemblies need to mount completely square relative to the spindle and installing shims would throw that all of and wouldn't...

  • What is Purpose of Bow in Trailer Axle
    Basically all trailer axles have a slight bow to them when they are unloaded so I would be a little surprised if your current front axle didn't have the bow to it which would match the part Dexter 3,500 lb trailer axle # T3584F-EZ-8974 that you are planning on getting. With the weight of the trailer on the axle it will appear flatter. The bow is what allows the alignment of the wheels to be correct and wouldn't really cause a height difference if your current axle was totally flat.

  • What are Overall Dimensions of Typical Trailer Axle
    There isn't a set dimension for that on trailers. Typically axles are custom ordered to the specs needed.

For example, we have the 3,500 lb trailer axle part # T3584F-EZ-8974 which has 89 inches from hub face to hub face and then 74 inches from spring seat to spring seat.

  • Spindle Measurements Help Determine Axle Capacity on 3500 Pound Dexter Trailer Axles
    The 1-1/16 measurement is the diameter of where the outer bearing rides on the spindle. There are different capacity spindles that have this same measurement. Ones with a thicker stem, the part welded to the axle, have a higher capacity and that is what is on axle # T3584F-EZ-8974. Each of the spindles is rated for 1,750 pounds for a total of 3500 pounds for the whole axle.

  • Can 2 Axles with a 2-3/8" Diameter Safely Hold a 4,500 lb Boat
    Since axles that have a 2-3/8" diameter are typically rated for 3,500 lbs, like the Dexter Axle # T3584F-EZ-8974, then 2 of them would put the weight capacity at 7,000 lbs so they will be able to handle a boat weighing in at 4,500 lbs as long as the boat trailer itself doesn't weigh over 2,500 lbs. You also want to check the weight rating of the boat trailer itself. Even if your aluminum axles are rated for more than your 4,500 lb boat, the rest of your trailer may not be able to handle...

Basically this will be exactly where the tire's center will be. So you might measure between the tire centers to find out where the wheels would end up if you went with this axle.

  • How Much Grease to Pump into Trailer Hub Using EZ Lube Fitting
    It is very easy to over fill trailer hubs with grease when using the EZ lube fitting which then blows out the grease seal and makes a big mess. It's actually best to grease by hand and not use the fitting at all to prevent that. But if you are going to it I would recommend just putting in enough that allows the outer bearing to move slightly as you pump it in.

  • Replacement Axle for a 1994 Jayco Eagle 8 with Dexter Axle
    It sounds like you will need a 2,000 pound axle. We do not carry the torsion straight axles though. We do have axle-less systems that work the same as torsion axles. I have included a link to them for you to view. The great thing about the axle-less systems, besides the better ground clearance, is that you don't have to have a specific axle length and in your case you would not have to add suspension components like you likely would if you went to a straight axle.

  • How Does EZ-Lube Spindle Grease Hub Components
    The EZ-Lube spindles have a hole in the spindle so that it fills the hub components from the back of the inner bearing. This forces air out of the hub area and will disburse the grease toward the outside of the hub on the grease fitting side. I have attached a photo of an EZ-Lube spindle that shows the hole where the grease exits.
