Comparing the E-Z Lube Hubs to the Standard Hub Assemblies for Trailer Axles


What is the difference between a standard and easy grease hub?


Expert Reply:

The difference between the standard and EZ hubs is in the grease cap. For instance, the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K is the same hub, bearings, seal, and races as found in # AKHD-545-35-K but the grease cap is different. The grease cap is not only longer on the E-Z Lube Hubs but also has a rubber plug. The purpose of the length and the plug are to have enough room for and access to the grease zerk fitting integrated into E-Z lube axle spindles.

If you don't have the grease zerk on your spindles, you don't need the E-Z Lube hub assembly. If you do have the grease zerk on the spindle, then you will want the E-Z Lube hub assembly that is the proper size and bolt pattern for your axle application.
