Availability of Dexter 4 Drop Axle with Idler Hub with 5 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern


I need two axles with 4 inch drop,89 inches to hub face, but the problem im having is to find them with 5-5.5 lug pattern. is there a way to order them this way. I have measured the distance between studs to center and get 3 1/4. please advise me on the best way to accomplish this. I didnt want to have to buy new rims and tires to fit the 5-4.5 hubs.

The Dexter Trailer Axle Beam w/ Idler Hubs # 8327812-I that you referenced is a kit that includes the following:

Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with 4" Drop E-Z Lube Spindles - # 8327812
Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles - # 84545UC1-EZ
LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease - 14 oz. Cartridge Item # L11390

Since you are needing a 5 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern for the hub you can simply order the axle beam and the bearing grease from the kit above and then order the Dexter Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles # 84555UC1-EZ as well which has the 5 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern you are looking for.

Something else to keep in mind is that this axle has a spring center measurement of 74". You need to make sure this matches your application as well to confirm that this trailer axle is the correct fit for you.
