Recommended Brake Assemblies and Hub/Drum Assemblies for 7,000 lb Axle

Expert Reply:

With the 7,000 lb axle capacity and the bearings you gave, I can give you what will fit your trailer regardless of brand name. For your trailer brake assemblies, I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA. These assemblies will need adjustment only at initial install and then will adjust as needed to optimize your braking performance.

For your hub/drum assemblies, I recommend the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 6,000-lb and 7,000-lb Axles - 12" - 5 Spoke Utility # 8-174-5UC3 or the Trailer Hub/Drum - 5,200-lb - 7,000-lb Axles - 12" Diameter - 8 on 6-1/2 - Galvanized # 8-219-50. Based on the information I can find about your current bearings, these hub/drum assemblies should fit your axle spindles. The best way to confirm is to actually measure your spindles with a digital caliper like # PTW80157. I've attached a photo to assist with the measuring locations to confirm a fit.
