E-Z Lube and Easy Grease-Compatible Hub for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube axle or etrailer Easy Grease to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

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"

Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3.5K Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 - Pre-Greased - AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (80 Customer Reviews)

Hub is designed for use on trailer idler axles. Fits 3.5K E-Z Lube and etrailer Easy Grease axles with #84 spindles. Inner bearing (L68149) and race, outer bearing (L44649) and race, grease seal, grease cap, and lug nuts included.


Finished one side, gotta get a cotter pin for this side. Kinda wish they came with cotter pins. Good product, I’ve used these hubs before on a different trailer and so far so good. Convenient that it’s greased already and assembled. Makes installation a breeze. Easy 5 minute job. Thanks etrailer!


Next time I’m buying OEM. The bearings aren’t really ps packed with grease, the hub is just stuffed with grease. You can’t get to the back bearings to inspect or grease, so these hubs will only be good for a few years. The kit didn’t come with the easy lube, spindle nut, washers, or locking clip. I had to reuse my old hardware. This is the price difference between this item and the dexter one I should have bought.

This is a good product for the price, but you’ll get what you pay for.

so far, so good. just checked the bearings yesterday

new hubs and bearings worked fine on our boat trailer, excellent service and delivery


I needed a new hub assembly for my boat trailer, but had no idea which one to get. I called E-trailer's customer support and the agent told me what to measure etc. I called them back with the requested info and they told me which assembly I needed, to include the two different sized bearings. The hub assembly fit perfectly. I was very pleased. It is of great quality and came with bearings, racers, lug nuts, grease seal and hub cover for zerk fittings. I was astonished with the low price for the entire kit. Their customer service is great, shipping is fast, and the products are top notch quality. I will use E-trailer for all my future trailer needs. They stand by their products.

Still a five star product. I travel from Columbus GA to Ft Walton Beach Fla several times a month 400 mile round trip The hub trails perfectly with no dogleg. The grease seal has not leaked at all and keeps the salt water out. I could not be more happy with this purchase.
Don M - 04/20/2020


Last project built. Used etrailer for almost all parts, 7 pin wiring harnesses, junction block, tail lights, jacks vent cover and so. Love the leveling jacks. Friend wants one now so started another one. I will be getting all the parts from etrailer...


replaced the enter hub assembly, bearings, seal, and even grease zerk. lost everything when wheel came off my boat trailer. almost everything came in the hub kit for a complete rebuild except the zerk and grease, which i did also order from the replacement went perfectly. all the parts were as good if not better quality than the original on the trailer. glad i did both sides cause if one goes, the other is not far behind. there videos are also very helpful.

after a year, trailer is working great. change grease occassionally to keep bearings with fresh grease.

Fits perfectly, easy website to navigate through.


I have used etrailer several times and I am very satisfied with part quality and price. Very courteous and helpful. Don't get cheap knockoffs. Orders to you in 2 to 3 days. Keep it up you have my business. Tks William


Product was as described by Katie in customer service. Went together very easily!
I was upgrading my 2000 pound axle to a 3500 pound axle so we could haul a full cord of wood safely in my 6*10 trailer! I bought new everything and had it installed in about 3 hours.


Nice product


great service


Easy, fast install and a great price.


Easy fix. Good stuff. Might order a spare in case of an unexpected roadside repair


Fits perfectly. Well built. Buying the complete hub with bearings and grease seal saved me a lot of work vs replacing parts in the old hub. Just add a bearing buddy and you're good to go.


Great product, easy to install, arrived in 1 day! I have a couple trailers, will buy from this company again for sure!


Limited use on trailer. Matched up with rim and hub.


Etrailers .com's customer service is the best I have ever seen. They go the extra mile to satisfy their customers and I will continue to use them for all of my trailer needs. The hubs arrived promptly as described and easy to install after reviewing the "How To" documentation that they linked to my receipt.

ALAN C - 06/30/2019


just what I ordered very fast ship. need to place another order very soon. great doing business with you . thanks

everything I have got from you guys have been very good and will always check etrailer first thanks
le. s - 12/18/2017


Fit up was perfect everything was pre greased as listed in the details. Only reason I gave 4 stars is because the ez lube caps that come with the kit would not fit in the hub. Also one box had been opened and didn’t have the ez lube cap. I reused the oem caps and everything is perfect. Will definitely buy again in the future!


Great item for price fit was great also and fast shipping thanks


Great company to order your trailer parts. Any questions contact them and they'll help!


Customer service was very helpful when our package shipment was delayed, however it arrived in a box which was barely holding the contents. I recommend spending a little more time making sure your heavy products packaged in an appropriate box


etrailer will be the only company I buy any product from. Their parts fit and function great. The team members are professional and give exceptional service. I will be buying another set soon on another trailer. Thanks again E Trailer!!


I didn’t see anywhere in the ad where it said these spindles and bearings were made in China. Had I known I would have not ordered them.


Arrived earlier than promised. All bearings, races and seals were perfect. Had the races installed, bearings packed, seal installed and hub replaced in an hour.

Customer Service a GREAT help to get the right parts. I will use eTrailer again.

  • Pre-Greased Trailer Hub for 2015 Jayco Jayflight 185 RD
    Since your 2015 Jayco Jayflight 185 RD has a 3,500 lb axle the pre-greased hub part # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K is the correct fitting hub. It looks like you have a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern too so that matches as well.

  • Correct Hubs for Boat Trailer with L68149 and L44649 Bearings
    The correct trailer idler hub for your boat trailer is the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb Axles part # AKIHUB-545-35-K or part # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K if you have zerk fittings on the spindle. These are both pre-greased so there is no mess to be had.

  • Upgraded Hubs with Higher Weight Capacity for #84 Spindle
    The #84 spindle is rated at 1,750 lbs so for an idler hub I recommend the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K which is also rated for 1,750 lbs. There won't be an option for a higher rated hub. In regards to installation, make sure you are not tightening the castle nut too much as this can cause the bearings to burn up as well as improper lubrication.

  • How to Pick Out New Hub for Trailer With Bearing Numbers that Aren't Marked
    In order to pick out the correct hub assembly or bearings for a trailer you are going to need know a few key pieces of information.

  • Replacement Idle Hub for Pace 5x8 Enclosed Cargo Trailer
    It looks like your Pace 5x8 trailer has a Dexter Axle 3,500 lb axle. If you can confirm this then that means you'll need part # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K for a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern or part # AKIHUB-5475-35-EZ-K for a 5 on 4-3/4" bolt pattern.

    To upgrade to an EZ lube setup will require you to replace your axle or you could just replace the spindle.

For a new hub/drum to fit this you would want the part # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K or for a idler hub part # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K. Welding a spindle is not something we recommend most people doing.
