I received 3 boxes all of which had some sort of damaged or destroyed parts in it. All of the bearing kits are garbage, I will need replacements. The back plate and pad assemblies were ok, only two I had to installed the adjuster bolt back into and inspect for damage, but only received 2 of 4 nut and plug kits seen in pictures attached. Everything was improperly boxed, boxes are way too large for these components and hardware/bearing kits were packaged with very heavy components. Bearing kits should have been shipped separately in a small package. Bearing kit was also not in a proper bag, if not a ziploc at least tape the bag shut. I hope the drums are ok, I will have to grind on 2 of them just to allow the wheel to mate properly. I will have to measure all of the races and drum dimensions to ensure they are not warped or bent in any way. Extremely unhappy with this purchase. What a waste of components.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

ordered 4 brake assemblies and hubs and 2 of the 8 were damaged, delaying my job and costing me time and money. I paid more money for a quality experience and did not get it

I used these on my M101A2 military trailer after doing axle swap. They work perfect.

- 23-105-106

The shipment came fast and undamaged. The kits were actual Dexter parts and made in USA. I had no trouble installing the kits with the instructions provided in the package by Dexter.

- 23-105-106

I just received my trailer parts today. I am very satisfied with the quality of everything that I ordered. I would highly recommend etrailer to everyone that needs quality trailer parts at a great price. The delivery time was fantastic and the personal attention to service is outstanding.

The Dexter brakes are great but the process of ordering this was a PITA. First, the bearing kit that was "in stock" turned out to not be in stock and the delivery of the brakes themselves was delayed for a couple of days as a result of not learning etrailer was holding the order pending my approval of product substitution. I didn't see that email until Monday morning. I looked at the product they recommended as a substitute and the bearings were not even the same sizes. I scrambled and bought Timkens on [online vendor] with next day ship. Then the brakes were delayed again in transit, not etrailers fault, but it still sucks when your trailer is disabled roadside for a week and parts are not available locally. I usually have pretty solid experiences with etrailer but this was a fail. There is no excuse for showing a product 'in stock' that is not in stock when their inventory systems are all real-time and linked to the website. But I received the brake kit yesterday and already had my bearing races replaced and my bearings greased up because I got those last week from [online vendor]. All fixed and back on the road now.

they were packaged loose in a box much bigger than necessary which is fine but also in the box was 8 stainless steel hub caps that got dented up. How careless this was......everything else was 5 stars

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

These brake assemblies fit just right . No issues on the install and have been working great since I installed then=m a year ago.

- 23-105-106

Parts arrived quickly and were packaged well, came with the nuts to secure the brake plate to the axle. Brakes work as they should, well worth the money.

- 23-105-106

Shipping was not easy on boxes had bearings laying in box, dust caps damaged and boxes are beat up

Sorry about that. Customer service will reach out.

Package was delivered in record time. Everything fit, no issues with missing parts. Was complete with a simple installation. Took approximately 1 1/2 per wheel including repacking of wheel bearings.

- 23-105-106

These brakes are legendary. We use them on all of the VORSHEER XOC Trailers

- 23-105-106

The product was exactly what I was looking for at a fair price and using their price match program even go a better price. Staff was extremely helpful and responsive to my needs. Will definitely purchase again from trailer.

We have several thousand miles on the brakes and drums and they are performing perfectly.

ETRAILER.COM provides quality products that are economically priced, and the Dexter 23-105/106 axle brake assemblies were an example of the quality parts they stock. These axle brake assemblies were easy to install and saved alot of time since you don't have to go searching various vendors for individual component parts

Fit right up, adjusted and work great.

Lori was very helpful with all my questions. Sent the parts out quickly and I had them in a couple days. I will definitely give etrailer a call next time I need parts. This was too easy.

Fit as listed, easy install and work fi ne.

I ordered and received new Dexter trailer brake kits for my three axle 48 ft. gooseneck race trailer. The items were delivered in a timely manner and with free shipping. This is not the first time I have ordered these items for my trailer from I put a lot of miles on the last set and they worked great and were still in pretty good shape. The best part of these units is that they are made in the USA and the quality is way better than the off shore knock offs that are out there. The packaging has also greatly improved. Each backing plate unit is now individually boxed and bagged ensuring against shipping and moisture damage. I would buy this product again.

I ordered 2 sets of these for my cam 10000 lb utility trailer. They were exact replacements for my dexter ez lube axles. Came with new lock nuts, adjuster plugs and install instructions. All new is really great, no guessing about worn or rusted components and got free shipping. I have bought other items from etrailer and have been very happy with them.
