Can the Bearings in the Kit # BK2-100 be Installed on Either Side of the Axle


The existing bearings on the trailer are marked L for left and R for right. Do these bearings matter which side of the trailer they are installed on?


Expert Reply:

The bearings in the Bearing Kit for an #84 Spindle # BK2-100 do not matter which side of the trailer they are installed on as long as they are a direct replacement for what you currently have.

This kit includes the inner bearing # L68149, outer bearing # L44649, and grease seal # 58846 which has an inner diameter of 1.719" and an outer diameter of 2.565". If you don't know the part numbers you can use a digital caliper like part # 301-17068 to measure the places on your spindle where your bearings and seal ride (see attached picture).

Let me know what you measure (if that needs to be done) and I can make sure you order the correct parts. I have also linked an installation video of this kit for you to check out.
