How to Choose Replacement Axle


Nee a replacement axle and hub for my Carry on trailer and cannot seem to locate the correct part. Do you carry a 2K7058 axle? dont seem to see it on the Dexter Web site also. I attached a picture.

Thank you for the photo and while there is a way to determine a replacement axle, unfortunately there is nothing on the damaged axle tag that can be used as a way to specifically find the correct one.

In order to choose the correct replacement axle for your trailer you will need to know the dimensions of your current axle's hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center as in the diagram I have added; the other thing you need to know is the weight capacity of the axle you need, which should match or exceed the GVWR of your trailer.

For example the Dexter Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs # 20545I-ST-60-10 has a 2,000 lb capacity and measures 60 inches from hub face to hub face and 48 inches from spring center to spring center.

You do have another option, the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System, which are simply bolted or welded so you do not have to worry about finding an axle that meets any specific measurements such as the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # A20RS545, which has a 2,000 lb capacity.

I've added a link to our selection of axles for you to check out as well as links to video reviews of the Dexter axle and Timbren system.
