Can Trailer Axle be Replaced With 1 Larger Hub-Face Measurement


WIll this axle work if the spring center is the same as mine but the hub face to hub face measurement is 1inch longer on this axle? Also what is the overall length?


Expert Reply:

The Dexter Trailer Idler Axle Beam with EZ-Lube Spindles # T20BTR-EZ-7258 should work great for your application! The only time that having your hub-face sit out an extra inch would be a problem is if that made your trailer tires touch fenders that you might have on the trailer. If your trailer doesn't have any fenders then you won't have any problems going this route!

Please note that if you only have 1 axle this is alright. If you have more than one axle then you'd need to swap out all of your axles to match.
