If your trailer brakes are like mine were this is the item for you. I purchased a used excavator and it came with a trailer, well the trailer was thrown into the deal for a reason. All the brakes for both axels had multiple problems, cracked shoes, bad magnets, various rusted parts. After totaling the cost of all the individual items I would need, the cost of a brand new brake kit was only a little more and much more easy to replace, five mounting bolts off five on. I do recommend one thing, in the instructions your given the torque setting for the bolts, so Dexter must feel it's important, so use a torque wrench, rent one if you don't own one.


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.

parts and pricing was fair, had shipping issue on first part of order, (in photo), called to let them know, was no issue and items lost were replaced in a timely manner, will buy from etrailer again, no problem


Tracking down the brake components I needed was easier than expected. I have a 16' gooseneck that didn't have a single stitch of brake shoe left on it. The parts arrived in 2 days and packaging was fine (didn't have any damage or break the tang spindle washer). It was the easiest brake job I've ever done. Bolt the entire assembly on, adjust the brakes, and we're off to the races. Appreciate the etrailer folks and the easy to use website.


These brakes work very well on my 13000Lb logging trailer.


The brakes looked like a reboxed return as they were partially disassembled and missing parts.

I know that the brakes that we carry are new from the manufacturer. I will have our Customer Service team reach out to assist you.

Customer service was great! Because my parts were back ordered, etrailer thought they could substitute my needed parts. When I was able to look at the parts after ordering, I was able to see that they would not work for my application. Not even ten minutes had passed when I called back to request my original backing plates. To my astonishment, Chelsea told me my order was already boxed and on the truck and it could not be pulled. After telling her the situation, she understood what happened and corrected it! It unfortunately did take a while to get my parts but no fault of hers. Will be using etrailer when ever possible.


Everything and every time I have bought thru etrailer , the email communications have been awesome. Some of the best E customer service I have ever received..!!
From seconds of ordering to showing up at my doorstep on the day I'm told.
Awesome ..!! Also, LOVE THE MADE IN THE USA PRODUCTS.!!!!!!!!!!! Good job at!!!!!!


Worked exactly as described, came with all new hardware. Quality A+


Fantastic service. Fast well packaged s hipping


I'm a repeat customer of, and as usual, they delivered the product I needed in a timely manner.


Joanne was very knowledge about my axle and the backing plates needed. She also communicated with me until I got the shipment. The plates were a snap to install….no more repairs piece by piece. ETRAILER is the source for your towing related parts & supplies. Thanks to Ms Joanne & ETRAILER!


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.

Very good service. Prompt delivery. Products appear to be good quality.

The brakes were installed on my boat. Have only used it a few times but everything continues to be working very well.

Parts arrived quick....inexpensive..and exactly the right fit


Ah Dexter...the best of the best. It fits, works and loves a beating. Decades of trailering have taught me to look for the Dexter logo.


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 will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

Good quality. A definite upgrade from the questionable Chinese brakes that came on the trailer.


Great price on the set of these OEM replacements. I was skeptical that I would be receiving left and right in the set for the posted price. Local trailer parts store was selling a single left or right non-dexter for almost as much.


Very easy to use the website excellent fast shipping great quality parts


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.


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.


fast delivery


Exact replacements for Dexter 6K axles. Easy install.


Everything was a perfect fit - easy replacement- no issues - great service! Thank you
