Recommended Dexter 5,200 lb Axle With Electric Brakes Upgrade


I am looking to upgrade my 3,500 lb axles on my travel trailer. The description of this kit says it includes mounting hardware. Can you tell me what hardware, specifically, is included? Also, can a pair of these axles be shipped to a residential address?

The Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 86-1/2" - 5.2K # 8327816-EB can be shipped to a residential address. Each axle comes with the 86-1/2 inch hub face to hub face length and spring seats that are 71-1/2 inches on center. Each axle will come with the complete brake assemblies, the hardware to mount the assemblies to the axle's brake mounting flange, the complete hub/drum assemblies including the races, bearings, seals, cap, lug nuts, and grease along with the spindle nut and hardware. What is not included is a grease gun like # L30200 or a bearing packer like # L70025 which are not essential but do make the installation much easier.

The # 8327816-EB will give you a complete axle ready to mount to your leaf springs. You will need to use the U-Bolt Kit for Mounting 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb, Round Trailer Axles - 7" Long U-Bolts # APUBR-8 for each axle and you will need wire for your brake assemblies # 10-1-1 sold by the foot.

I've attached a couple installation videos to give you an idea of how the installation goes.
