Question:

I am interested in Titan Disc Brake Kit and Leverlock Actuator w/ Electric Lockout - Single, 3,500-lb Axle Item # T4843100. I have an Dexter Torflex Light Duty 2,200 lb axle. I check with Dexter and their reply was The Dexter Axle Torflex 1,000 to 2,200 lbs. capacity axle have a straight spindle 1.062” 1 1/16” in diameter for both the inner and outer bearings. Is you product above compatible? Thanks,

I do have what you need but there is not an entire kit for this nor will the Titan Disc Brake Kit and BrakeRite Electric-Hydraulic Actuator part # T4843800 work. The parts you will need are as follows:

Kodiak Disc Brake Kit part # K2HR2D (2)
Titan BrakeRite EHB Electric-Hydraulic Actuator part # T4813102
Titan Hydraulic Brake Lines and Fittings part # T4830000
Gel Cell Breakaway Kit for Titan BrakeRite Systems part # T4822100
Trailer Wiring 7-Way Upgrade Kit part # e99011

The above contains all of the parts from the kit you were looking at save for the hubs/rotors which have been replaced with the correct set.

I don’t want to spend so much for an actuator. There must be a surge coupler at a much lower cost.

Yes, if you do not want to go the electric over hydraulic route then you can substitute the Titan BrakeRite EHB Electric-Hydraulic Actuator part # T4813102 for the Dexter DX7.5 Drop-N-Go Brake Actuator part # 099-175-20. The lockout will be needed so that you can reverse the trailer without the brakes locking up. Therefore, you will need both the Hopkins Wiring Harness with 5-Pole Flat Trailer Connector part # HM37918 and the Tow Ready 4 Pole to 5 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter part # 20036 to use this feature assuming you only have a 4-way now.
