the product is great which is why purchased it to rebuild my axles on my gooseneck car hauler. I was greatly disappointed in the shipping which turned out to be more of a poorly planned joke. First product was back ordered and I was never informed of the 1 month lead time it took. I only got emails pushing the shipping date back one week at a time. I finally reached out and was Informed they were waiting for the manufacture to build the product. When I finally got the 4 spindles the box was absolutely destroyed. Spindles were loosely put in box allowing 40 lbs of metal to roll freely which tore the box to pieces. Now I have spindles that are missing 3 out of 4 castle nuts and washers. Two of the four spindles have dents and small imperfections from them bouncing around on each other. Packaging needs to be seriously looked at

And will continue to do so for all my other trailers

Great Place to buy buy trailer needs&Parts. Thank You, Frank Miranda

The spindle wasn't quite the 2 1/4 " therefore it slowed down the welding process. overall, I am very satisfied with the quality of it.The ship[ping was extremely fast. Much better quality than the factory one that snapped in half.Time will tell!!



by:

5.2k-7k axles are 3"OD and 2 1/2" inside diameter on a standard #42 axle. My fault I didn't cut the old one off first. You had better check before ordering. I have no idea where this one would be used.



by:

Works great



by:

shorter than i thought they were but with some simple fab work can work excellent in any condition



by:

Now this was awesome. I did have to get turned down a little so I could press it in to axle but that's perfect so it was tight and straight. Then welded the back to secure.



by:

Perfect thanks

  • Is Finding Excess Grease On Wheel After greasing EZ Lube Spindles Something To Worry About
    Since you just pumped grease into your EZ lube spindle like the EZ Lube Spindle, Item # TRU37FR, I would not be too concerned. I would clean up the excess grease on the inside of your left wheel and keep tabs on it. Also, make sure using the same type of grease. Normally EZ Lube spindles "take care of themselves" if you carry out routine maintenance like you are doing. If possible, I encourage you to check your grease seal to make sure it is not damaged. If you are having an actual...

  • Can Spindles be Replaced on Dexter Torflex Axle
    The spindles can be replaced. However, they will need to be welded by a certified welder. They use special jigs so that it is concentric and square on the axle or it can cause problems with uneven tire wear and wheel tracking. I've linked our selection of spindles for your to find the correct part for your trailer.

  • What Size Axle Does the Spindle part # TRU37FR Fit
    The TruRyde spindle part # TRU37FR that you referenced is designed for 5,200 lb axles. That capacity of axle has a diameter of 3 inches externally. Spindles aren't designed to just slip into an axle as a replacement. To replace a spindle, the old one would need to be cut off, and the new one welded into place. This is NOT a job for the do-it-yourselfer. The new spindle must be absolutely square with the axle in order to prevent premature tire wear and wheel tracking problems. I would...

  • Replacement Spindle Recommendation for Dexter # 42
    Looks like you are in need of a number 42 spindle like the part # TRU37FR. The numbers you listed aren't part numbers but judging by the shape of what you sent in a picture of this is a match. You still might verify this though by measuring where the bearings ride. If those dimensions are 1.25 and 1.74 inch then this is the correct.

  • Number 42 Spindle Recommendation for Mounting Trailer Hub for Spare
    If you can get me more info on the hub I can see which spindle it would fit. If you know the bearing numbers of the hub that would work, or there is a casting number on the hub like what Dexter does that would work. Axle capacity of the trailer will work as well.

  • Brake Flange Pattern For #42 E-Z Lube Spindle

  • How Can the #42 E-Z Lube Spindle Fit Both a 5.2K and 7K Axles
    There are usually only a few small difference between a 5,200 lb and a 7,000 lb trailer axle but not every two are the same even with the same capacity as different manufacturers make them to different specs. The actual axle thickness can play a role in capacity as well as the brakes/hubs. The #42 E-Z Lube Spindle part # TRU37FR can work with either so long as the inner diameter is 2-1/4".

  • Will the #42 E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Flange Work On Any Axle Between 5,200 and 7,000 Lbs
    The axle tube dimensions should be the same from anything between 5,200 - 7,000 lbs. I know for sure the outer diameter will be 3" as this is a standard but it would not hurt to measure the inner diameter when fittings the #42 E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Flange part # TRU37FR which has a stub diameter of 2-1/4". It's possible different manufactures use different axle beam thicknesses for an axle within the range above but it should be fairly standard.

  • Could Bent RV Tire Spindle Cause Trailer Sway
    Thank you for the photo of your trailer tire. I cannot tell for sure from the photo but if you suspect that you could have a bent spindle on at least that one wheel and you are experiencing sway from the trailer at highway speed despite using a weight distribution/sway control hitch then I urge you to take the trailer to a shop that can check the condition of the axle and spindles. It is certainly possible that a good hit from road debris (or from a curb that was closer than you thought)...

  • What Material is TruRyde TRU37FR 5.2-7K Trailer Spindle Made From
    Acccrding to TruRyde, the # TRU37FR for 5.2 to 7K capacity trailer axles is constructed of cold rolled 1045 steel bar stock. The spindle is compatible with a # 25580 inner wheel bearing, the outer bearing used will depend on the capacity of the axle.

  • How To Determine the Weight Capacity For a Trailer Axle with Spindle Dimensions that Match 42
    A trailer as old as yours would be pretty hard to determine an overall capacity for, but since you have 6 lug hubs that would indicate by todays standards you have a capacity most likely between 5,200 and 6k which matches pretty close to the spindle dimensions you listed as well. The spindle dimensions match the 42 spindle like the part # TRU37FR which has a 5,200 lb capacity.

  • Replacement Spindle for 7,000 lbs Axle
    We have the #42 E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Flange for 5.2K to 7K Trailer Axles - 2-1/4" Diameter # TRU37FR and the #42 Spindle for 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Trailer Axles - 2-1/4" Diameter # TRU57FR which are both compatible with 7,000 lb axles. Both will measure 4 inches from the grease seal position to the threads. You can see this in the attached video at the 1:42 second mark. The difference between these is the zerk fitting and the brake flange. The spindle dimensions will be identical.

  • What Spindles Should be Used on Dexter 7k Trailer Axle
    Yes, the number 42 spindle is the standard for Dexter 7k axles like what you have. For that we have the part # TRU57FR which does not have a brake flange or we have the part # TRU37FR which does have the brake flange.

  • Replacement Spindle for Premco Tandem Axle Trailer
    Our main page for trailer spindles is linked for you. Since your tandem axle trailer is rated for 9500-lbs it uses either 5000-lb or 5200-lb axles. For a 5K axle we offer # TRU57FR which uses a grease seal with an inner diameter (ID) of 2.24-inches, an inner bearing ID of 1.74-inches and an outer bearing ID of 1.25-inches. For a 5200-lb axle we have E-Z Lube spindle # TRU37FR which has the same seal and bearing surface dimensions. Please refer to the items' linked pages for a diagram...

  • Is There a Replacement Trailer Spindle That Uses an LM67048 Bearing
    I do have some options for you but in order to get the correct replacement spindle you'll need to know the inside diameter of the axle as well as the inner and outer bearings. The LM67048 bearing has a 1.250" inner diameter and we do have some spindles with a 1.250" outer bearing seat like the #42 E-Z Lube Spindle part # TRU37FR which fits a 2-1/4" inner diameter axle. I have attached our full list of spindles below as well if the above does not work, just filter through them once you...

  • Replacement Trailer Spindle for 3 inch Diameter Trailer Axle
    Since your axle diameter is 3 inch that would mean that your axle capacity is between 5.2k and 7k so for a replacement spindle the EZ Lube Spindle part # TRU37FR would fit and work well. This has a 5 bolt spindle though.

  • Recommendation for Failing EZ Lube Spindle and Vortex Hub
    We do not carry the Vortex hubs made by Tie Down Engineering. Unfortunately because of this, I don't really know how to assist with troubleshooting the hubs themselves as they are designed to seal out moisture and debris, yet are obviously failing. The threaded cab should have an o-ring to prevent moisture entry and the seal should prevent it on the other side. The zerk fitting on your EZ lub spindles is a part of the spindle so to replace that would require changing the entire spindle....

  • Solution for Trailer Axle with Bent Spindle
    You can replace the spindle but there really isn't a way to repair a bent spindle. I don't know what axle capacity you have but if it's a 3,500 lb axle the correct spindle would be the part # TRU74FR or if it's a 5.2k to 7k you'd want the part # TRU37FR.

  • Can Trailer Axle Spindle be Replaced
    You can replace the spindle of your axle but you would need to know the axle capacity to pick out the correct one. For a 3,500 lb axle the correct spindle would be the part # TRU74FR or if you have a 5.2k to 7k axle you'd want the part # TRU37FR.

  • What Axle Does TruRyde Spindle TRU37FR Fit
    Typically the #42 E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Flange for 5.2K to 7K Trailer Axles # TRU37FR is designed to attach to 3 inch diameter trailer axles like the # 8327816. Spindle installs are typically only done by welders/fabricators who have the correct jigs since it very much is a precision job.

  • Replacement Trailer Spindle for 5,000 lb Torsion Axle
    You can remove the spindles on the torsion axles that you have and we do sell replacements but it's not just something that unbolts unfortunately. They'll have to be cut off and reinstalled by a welder that has the correct tools to install them properly as it's a precision job. For a replacement spindle for a 5k trailer axle that has the brake flange we have the 42 spindle part # TRU37FR.
