Will Dexter Torflex Lift Kit Work with ALKO Axles  

Question:

I have a 2004 Forest River converted Toy Hauler which is a Continental Cargo 10,000# car hauler frame. It has ALKO axles on it and Im being told it has 5,500# axles. My question is whether the Dexter lift kit would work with these axles? If you do not know the answer, is there a drawing available for the hole locations of the spacers so I can determine whether this will bolt on to my trailer?

The Dexter Torflex Lift Kits like the Tandem Axle # K71-725-02 that you referenced are only confirmed to work with Dexter Torflex axles. It's possible that the spacers will fit with your AL-KO axles but this has not been tested.

The spacers for this kit feature bolt holes that are 9 inches apart on center and 9-1/2 inches apart on center (see attached image). You can use this to determine if the kit will work on your converted toy hauler.

Is there an identification sticker anywhere on the axle itself that points to its specific model or manufacturer? We do have a couple of other brand lift kits but I'm not sure if they will be compatible.
