Info Needed to Pick Out Replacement Brake Assemblies for Dexter Trailer Axle


Can you help me figure out the correct brake assembly for this axle Thanks


Expert Reply:

Picking out brake assemblies for Dexter axles is actually pretty easy but I am not able to determine the info I need from your axle tag.

To pick out the correct brake assemblies for your trailer you need to know a few things.

You will want to measure the inner diameter of your hub/drums and the depth of the drums to determine what brake assembly dimensions you need. For example the part # 23-27 is a 10 inch by 2-1/4 inch thick brake assembly.

You also want to determine what the bolt pattern is of your assembly mounting flange. The standard size is 4 on 4 inch. You also want to determine the axle capacity of your trailer and go with an assembly that has the same rating, the # 23-27 has a 3,500 lb capacity.
