      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.


      etrailer Axles

      etrailer 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. 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.

      Thoroughly Tested for Safety

      This hub-and-drum assembly meets the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. This assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This assembly has also been tested by QAI Laboratories for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.


      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"

I'm currently installing it to replace a practically good Axle but the Spindle on the original Axle doesn't have Cotter Pins. A friend suggested I change the bearings since the wheel was wobbling but after I changed them, the wheel continued to come off. After watching U-Tube Videos, everyone of them had Cotter Pins, so I decided to be safe rather than sorry and replace the Axle with one of yours plus now ALL the bearings are NEW with New Hubs, WELL WORTH THE MONEY I SPENT.

Ive used the trailer sparingly but at least the wheel no longer wobbles or comes off on its own, still very satisfied with the Cotter Pin outfit

Needed to beef up my little trailer project from a 4 lug to a 5 lug st up.These were perfect, and arrived quickly!

This axle is holding up well. It is on a trailer used for golf course maintenance.



by:

Axle came pretty quick and we'll packaged. Hubs came in separate boxes. Took out the old one and attempted to put in new one. The mount brackets on the new ones are a full inch apart farther than the original, therefore it doesn't fit. Not sure what to do.



by:

Great product , and very good replacement and upgrade form my old one.



by:

Excellent construct



by:

Arrived today, looks good except for one of the grease zerks is damaged from shipping. Bearings are Chinese but I plan to upgrade them in a year or two.



by:

Seems well made and should work perfectly on my trailer.



by:

I had to return this product because it would no fit my trailer. My trailer was the issue, not the axle. From what I could see w/o out removing packaging, it looked like a good axle

Easy ordering, axle arrived on time and no damage. The axle worked perfect for my camping trailer, would recommend your company any time.



by:

I purchased two of these axles to replace my old square ones. They appear to be good quality but they arrived damaged. The grease fittings on the ends were smashed because packaging wasn't adequate. I've emailed back and forth and was shipped the wrong parts for replacement. In the end I was told I'd have to cut the spindles off and replace them. All I need is new grease zerks that thread on the ends of the axles. Be prepared to purchase these on your own because customer service is subpar on a remedy and the way they package them for shipping does not prevent damage.



by:

Axle and hubs were good quality. Dimensions were spot on 48" center hole of perch to center hole of perch. But.......some knucklehead built my trailer with 47" centers - so I ground off the perches and relocated on 47" centers. Took just over an hour to cut, measure, grind and weld old perches on new centers.

There was one odd phenomenon I've not seen before. The cotter pin hole was not driven through the center axis of the axle but rather offset to one side. Maybe that's how things are made these days.....or someone sneezed at the factory and the cotter pin holes moved. Nonetheless it's installed and works.

My Etrailer salesman, James X-72990 was pleasant in taking my order but told me the axle wouldn't be here for over a week. Then - he must have done something and the axle showed up in 2 days.....(Thanks James) Good product, good experience.

Joe (Bucks County Pennsylvania)



by:

The axle is of great quality, I had to have mine fabricated a bit to match the old spring seats.but I wouldn't hesitate to buy the axle. The shipping and customer service is top notch from etrailer. Excellent products, services and shipping...



by:

Just what I ordered, had to modify to fit my 1720lb Harbor Freight trailer as far as the spring seats. I knew that going in so no big deal. Great help and info from the order person.

Matched it up with bigger tires and etrailer finders!!!



by:

The original axle on my trailer suffered a catastrophic event, making it absolutely unusable. The replacement from etrailer fit like a glove and installed in a very reasonable amount of time. I couldn’t be happier.



by:

Axle worked just as it should. The best things about this company are their selection, speed of processing and communication. The best customer service of any company. Ashley was extremely helpful and quick to answer my questions. Terrific service company

  • Diameter of 2,000 lb Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs e82GR
    The diameter is 1-3/4 inches of the Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # e82GR. The # e82GR is a 2,000 lb axle with an idler hub on it that has a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern. It measures 60" from hub face to hub face and 48" from spring center to spring center and you'll want to make sure your axle also has those same measurements if you are looking to replace it.

  • Should the e82GR Trailer Axle WIth Idler Hubs Have a Washer Between the Castle Nut and Bearing
    The reason yours does not have any washers is they are not part of the Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # E82GR. In many instances there would be a tang washer or at least some kind of washer, but for this particular axle and idler hub the castle nut pushes directly onto the idler hub bearing.

  • Can You Make A Single Axle Trailer Into A Dual Axle Trailer
    You can convert a single axle trailer to a tandem axle but it's more extensive than just putting the extra axle on there. The current axle does need to be repositioned for proper tongue weight. You will also need to cut off the current hangers since the hanger spacing will not be the same.

  • How To Confirm Fit of Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 60" Long - 2,000 lbs
    The Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs part # e82GR measures 60" long from the face of each hub and 48" from the center of each spring seat. In order to determine compatibility you'll need to measure the axle on the trailer to ensure it matches up. If not, we do have other sizes available which are attached in the list below. We aren't able to look up parts for anyone specific trailer unfortunately. If you can provide me with the length measurements I'd be happy to look through our selection for you.

  • Is It Safe To Add Marine Or Equipment Grease To The e82GR Idler Hubs?
    The hubs that come with the # e82GR axle are packed with a Lithium complex multipurpose grease. It is safe to add marine or equipment grease, as long as it is another Lithium Complex grease. We recommend using something like the Timken Hi-Temp Red Grease # TMK79ZR.

    Welcome back! The correct U-Bolt kit for mounting your 2,000 lbs trailer axle is item # APUBR-10. The right set of leaf springs for your trailer is typically determined by capacity and where your spring hangers are mounted. Since you are customizing your trailer you're not bound by this limitation. Since your trailer's axles going to max out at 2,000 lbs, I recommend the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring for 2,000-lb Trailer Axles item # SP-169275. These 3 leaf springs are 20-3/8" long. They will...
