We do have an option for you, though we do not offer any axles with those specific dimensions. Instead, the best way to replace the axle is actually going to be an axle-less system.

The Timbren axle-less suspension systems are simply bolted or welded so you do not have to worry about finding an axle that meets any specific measurements. They also offer you a greatly improved ride compared to a traditional through-axle because the Timbrens work independently. What this means is that if there is a bump on one side of the road it won't rattle your entire trailer. The Timbren system also offers a better ride because they have progressive springs that absorb shock better than a traditional axle.

Since you mentioned your axle is rated for nearly 3,000 lbs I highly recommend the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Straight Spindle Only # ASR3500S05 which is rated for 3,500 lbs and with it you can use Idler Hub Assembly # 84545UC1-EZ or Hub and Drum Assembly # DX68XR.

I have added links to a couple reviews of the Timbren suspension which I highly recommend checking out.
