Can the Spring Seats On a Dexter 2,200 Lb Axle Be Moved and Re-Welded


I have 53.5 inches from center to center on my springs, I need 72 inches from hub face to hub face. the 2200 axle you all have has the seat at 58 inch center can I move in to the 53.5 inch center. I have to get out past an older beam that was welded to both side of the trailer and I welded the spring mounts to the trailer frame


Expert Reply:

Yes, you can move the spring seats to 53-1/2" apart on the Dexter 2,200 Lb Trailer Axle part # T20BTR-EZ-7258, or part # 20545I-EZ-72-10.

This is pretty common practice as manufactures just place the spring seats in a common spot but the customers can move them as needed. That said, you will likely destroy the old ones getting them off so I also recommend getting the Axle Spring Seat part # TRSS175 (2).
