What Info Is Needed to Pick Out Replacement Axle for Trailer

I don't have a way to look up your axle based on the number you gave me but I can help you pick out the correct replacement axle based on a few measurements. First thing you need is the axle capacity. That would be listed on the axle on a plate/sticker or you can measure the diameter of the axle to get this as well.

Typical Axle Diameters Based on Axle Capacity
- 1,000-lb - 2,000-lb Axles: 1-1/2 inch - 1-3/4 inch diameter
- 3,500-lb Axles: 2-3/8 inch diameter
- 6,000-lb - 7,200-lb Axles: 3 inch diameter
- 8,000-lb Axles: 3-1/2 inch diameter
- 9,000-lb Axles: 4 inch diameter
- 10,000-lb Or more axles: 5 inch diameter

Now you'll need to measure your current axle from hub face to hub face as well as the distance between the spring seats and you'll have all the info needed to pick out the correct replacement. See picture.

Once you know that I attached a link that has all of the axle we carry for you to check out. Or you can get me the dimensions and I'll see what you'd need!
