Will Item # AKIHUB-655-35-EZ-K work with this axle? The load ratings are difderent, but the desired bolt pattern is not available in a matched rating. The trailer will be rated at the lower of the two weights.

The Dexter Trailer Idler Axle Beam with EZ-Lube Spindles - 60" Long - 2,200 lbs # T20BTR-EZ-6048 is not compatible with the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 6 on 5-1/2 # AKIHUB-655-35-EZ-K.

If you are looking for an axle that length with a 6 on 5-1/2 bolt pattern, then you will need to use the Timbren Axle-Less System # ASR1THDS02. This will allow you the custom length when utilizing a 2 inch square bar (not included) cut to length in the integrated holes of the assemblies. This system will work with the hubs you desire and your system rating will be 2,200 lb max capacity. This system also replaces any leaf spring suspension so it is simply a bolt to frame option for custom trailer width. It can be used in tandem axle applications if desired.
