Availability of Spindle that Would Fit Square Tube Axle


I have a square axle on a boat trailer and need to replace a spindle, can the spindle be cut to fit in the square tube due the the angle?


Helpful Expert Reply:

New spindles should be welded on only by a professional welder who has experience and the correct jigs for installing spindles perfectly straight and concentric. If not installed correctly the trailer may not track properly and uneven tire wear can occur.

It might be more trouble than it's worth to try and fit a round spindle like the part # TRU24FR in a square tube axle by trimming it. We have a square version of this spindle as part # TRU47FR.
