Availability of Axle that Works with 2,000 Pound Hubs with 1 Inch Bearings  


I have one of the harbor freight trailers I purchased these hubs for it but the axle is metric and i wanna change the axle so That i can use these new hubs listed below. Do you have an axle this hub will fit? Ultra-Tow 57205 Hub


Expert Reply:

Based on my research, the Ultra-Tow 57205 hub assembly you recently obtained is designed for 2,000 pound axles and uses the # L44643 inner and outer bearing, much like the # AKIHUB-545-2-1K.

We do not currently have an axle that features the type of spindle needed for these hubs to fit, but you may be able to replace the spindle on your existing axle with the TruRyde # TRU94FR. This BT8 spindle will work perfectly with your hubs and it is designed for use on 2,000 pound axles. If you decide to go this route, you will need to have the installation performed by a professional welder with experience in this type of install.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.
