Replacement Brakes and Bearings for 2009 Cargo Express Tandem Axle Trailer


Need help finding trailer brakes and bearings for a 2009 Cargo Express tandem Axel trailer. Axels are 3500lbs. I think its 15x6 rim? I have a picture of the data tag if I need to send it. Thanks in advance for your help.

The most common set of inner/outer bearings in the hubs of a 3500-lb axle are # L68149 and # L44649 but you can make certain by pulling one hub and checking its inner and outer bearings for their part numbers. I linked a picture to help you see how those part numbers usually appear.

For brakes I suggest the self-adjusting set of left/right electric drum brakes # AKEBRK-35-SA. These 10 x 2-1/4-inch brakes are rated for your 3500-lb axle and they work with 15-inch trailer wheels. When you wire in the new brakes you can use either wire for ground.

I also included articles on wheel bearing grease types and the process of replacing bearings.
