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.

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.


Dexters 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.

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"

Straight trailer axle measures 60" from hub face to hub face and 48" from spring center to spring center. Includes idler hubs - with bearings, races, and seals - for 8" to 12" wheels. EZ-Lube spindles for simple lubrication.


Really good solid axle... I needed the mounting tabs moved and had a metal fabricator do the work for $20.00. This was used on an old boat trailer that I turned into a utility trailer. Also swapped out the springs with ones purchased from etrailer too. To complete the package I ordered (3) 165/65-8 trailer tires. The trailer tows straight and hauls everything I've ever needed to.

Honest E.


This axle and springs are perfect for what I was looking to accomplish. Trailer tows straight and true and has saved me with large items on several occasions. I no longer have to drive 45 minutes to borrow a truck to haul stuff...


I ordered my axle kit and received it 30 days later, I expected it in a week. The hubs, U-bolt kit, springs and grease were shipping in a box, when I receive it the heavy parts had smashed the grease tube, and was quite the mess in the box. The U-bolt kit I ordered as suggested by etrailer was the wrong kit and the bolts were short (their system did not suggest the right kit for the thicker springs). I see there is a kit I could have ordered with longer bolts. When I went to tighten the lug bolts on the new hub I received, one bolt started to pull through the hub. I reported the grease problem to etrailer, they could not care less, so I thought it would not be worth my time to report the other issues. I guess I will purchase new u-bolts, grease, and perhaps a hub somewhere else.


Was an easy install and has held up great Since 2019. I've drug this trailer everywhere and off road too!


Missing parts. I've been in contact with customer service all week, I still don't have the missing parts.

Thanks for reaching back out. I will reach out to our customer service team and make sure you are up to date on your order.


This product is everything promised. The wonderful salesperson on the other end of the telephone, (Jean P.) made sure that everything went smoothly. The parts were complete and well packaged for shipping. The order even arrived a day early! I cruised all of my local stores (no one had the right combination of parts) and the internet (companies not responding to requests for information) for a week before settling on and I then placed my order within 1 minute of making the phone call to them. They had and knew exactly what I needed. Great Job guys!

I use this trailer nearly everyday hauling all sorts of combinations of weights and lengths of lumber and household items. The axle has held up very well and has become the least of my concerns when on the road. Ive recommended the company many times over the course of the year and will continue to do so. Again, great job guys!


initially had one side that was running warm. i got the axel with the top off capability after packing the bearings with grease. i think it pushed too much in there and i backed off the nut a touch and it has been perfect for the year it's been installed. three 1000 mile trips to the desert and lots of wood hauling and no issues. support agreed with me about not forcing too much grease in there and told me to back the nut off. forgot to say that,


I bought a axle, springs wheels, hubs etc. to build a utility trailer, I inadvertently had ordered incompatible hubs for the selected axle the person filling the order noticed this and contacted customer service to alert them of the issue who then called me to correct the problem. This saved me the time and expense of returning the part and delaying the project. great service, attentive, knowledgeable employees and great products.
Thanks E trailer.


The illustration shows the hubs and bearings installed. Not so! The bearings, hubs, lug nuts, and dust covers were all packed together - both sets in one box. Both dust covers were badly bent - they would work, but your new installation would look shoddy. Luckily, the bearings and seals did not appear damaged.


This is my second order from the The items that I have ordered from them are exactly like they are described. And this replacement axle is a perfect fit for my small kit utility trailer. I'm looking forward to using the EZ-lube feature next year. It was also very simple to pack the bearings for the first time. is my go to source for trailer parts, I have already recommended them to other people for parts, and will do so in the future.


Easy to install. All parts included and ready to go.


I replaced my trailer axle on my 4 x 8’ Harbor Freight trailer. After a year the axle looks and performs like new.


Excellent, excellent company Judy was through the roof with support! I had to return my original order and she was able to walk me through what I needed to get me the correct parts and fast! Also took care of the return, all I had to do was print the label and drop it off. Look forward to doing business again.
The parts are good too...


Good quality axle assembly. Went together great. It’s nice that etrailer has info on web site with dimensions. It would be really nice if they had downloadable dfx or AutoCAD drawings available since I do all of my design I. AutoCAD.


Easy assembly and installation. Very happy with the kit.


Excellent product. I’ve used etrailer for several trailer projects and you can’t find better service anywhere. This is a 5 star business that you can trust.


I bought an axle for my tool trailer. So far so good. I'm glad I bought your higher quality USA made unit.


Good products,prices! Great communication, and shipping. Items were delivered as I was starting to weld my trailer frame together. I will use etrailer for my further parts needs. Great job!!


Staff was very helpful in determining exactly what I needed and everything was packaged properly and came intact. Thank you for your help!


Arrived in good shape eventhough the axel was sticking through the end of the box.


Everything was as described. Works grea t!


Everything was as described and very high quality.



On time and as described, thanks


good item good price...


Exactly as it was advertised

  • 2,200 lb Rated Trailer Axle Compatible with 15 inch Wheels
    The wheel mounting flange of the part # 20545I-EZ-60-10 is too small for 15 inch wheels. You would need to get this axle # 20545I-EZ-60-15 that comes with hubs compatible with 15 inch wheels.

  • Difference Between Dexter Trailer Idler Axle 20545I-EZ-60-10 and 20545I-EZ-60-15
    The difference between the Dexter Trailer Idler Axle part # 20545I-EZ-60-10 and part # 20545I-EZ-60-15 is that the former is compatible with wheels from 8"-12" and the latter is compatible with wheels from 13"-15". The surface area on the hub is larger on the latter option which is why it is compatible with larger wheels but aside from this they are the exact same.

  • Trailer Axle Recommendation Where Trailer has 48 inches Between Spring Seat on Center
    An axle like the part # 20545I-EZ-60-10 will technically fit your trailer since the spring seat dimensions are the same, but each wheel on your trailer will set out an additional 1/2 inch compared to the old axle. Most likely that wouldn't be a problem but you would still need to check fender clearance if applicable.

For example, the 3-Leaf Double-Eye Spring # e66SR has a length of 25-1/8 inches from the center of spring eye to the center of spring eye. You will want to get as close as you can to the length of your previous leaf springs, keeping in mind that they may have stretched...

    I do have a solution for you but we have only the most common size straight axles.

    The closest axle we have to your measurements is # CE33201GA-HUB which has a hub face of 57-1/2 inches and spring center of 46-1/2 inches. So it's very close. I'd double check your measurements to see if this will fit. The axle also includes idler hubs with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. As well as the bearings, races, seals, grease caps, wheel studs, lug nuts, and grease. It's also galvanized which is great for boat trailers.
