  • Replacing Trailer Axle Spindle From Older Short Spindle To BTR E-Z Lube Spindle
  • It sounds like you have an older style trailer axle with the short spindles. You will need a new Spindle # TRU44FR to mount on your axle as the short hubs are now obsolete. This will allow you to use the what is now standard length spindle dimensions. The CE Smith Trailer Idler Hub Assembly w/ Case # CE13315 is designed to fit the newer BTR spindles that are more commonly found on trailers.

  • Replacing Obsolete Trailer Spindles With a 1-3/8" Straight Spindle With Current Size Spindles
  • I am going to recommend changing out your spindles for one of the current size spindles as your spindle is obsolete and no one is producing parts for it currently. This will be extremely helpful in the event of a breakdown as these parts are readily available. We have a few options based on your current axle capacity. I have included a 3,500lb and 5,200lb selection below and included both idler hubs and drum brake hubs. 3,500LB Axle Parts #84 E-Z Lube Spindle w/ Brake Flange # TRU74FR Easy...

  • Can a Trailer Spindle with Grooves Still be Used if Bearing Fits
  • You will have to replace the spindle. Grooves that can't be taken out with emory cloth will eventually cause new bearings to fail which will leave you stranded with a locked up wheel most likely. 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 recommend finding a welder...

For a spindle, you'll need a 3500 lb spindle, but the exact spindle needed will depend on your axle tube and how the current spindles are attached.

  • What Replacement Spindle Do I Need for a Dexter 69-46 Spindle?
  • As far as removing your current spindle, you will need to grind/drill off the old one. One the old spindle is removed, I recommend the BT8 Spindle for 2,000-lb Trailer Axles # TRU59FR (for a 1-3/8 diameter) or the # TRU94FR (for 1-1/4 diameter). The measurement of the diameter is the stub (innermost tube on the spindle). In order to get the correct size, I recommend measuring the stub of your old spindle once it is removed. I went ahead and attached videos of both of these spindles in order...

  • Replacement Trailer Spindle for L44643 Inner and Outer Bearings
  • A spindle that uses both inner and outer bearing L44643 makes it a BT8 spindle, # TRU94FR. Please note that welding on new spindles is a precision job and should performed by a qualified welder with experience welding on spindles. The alternative is to replace the axle. Axles are measured from hub face to hub face and from spring seat center to spring seat center. For example, the picture I have included is for axle # T20BTR-EZ-7258.
