Replacement Hubs for 2,700 lb Axle


Looking to one of the hubs and bearing as starting to bind up.. don’t know what or how to look up hub and bearing kit but it keeps asking for weights on trailer as 2,400 lb axle or 3,000 lb axle 1,700 lb axle etc etc etc I’m lost thank you

Based on your photo it looks like you have 2,700 lb axles, and we do have hubs for that size axle. However, you will need to confirm the bearings your current hub has. You will need to take apart your current hub assembly and look at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them. If you are unable to find them, you need to use Digital Caliper # 301-17068 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings and grease seal ride. You can use the photo I've attached to see exactly where you need to measure.

Additionally, you need to know your hub's wheel bolt pattern; if you do not know what it is I have added a help article which details how you can find it, as well as a printable bolt hole template you can use.

The correct hub will be one of the following, based on the grease seal and wheel bolt pattern. All have inner and outer bearing # L44649, but the grease seal is different.

Grease Seal # 34823 (1.249" inner diameter and 1.983" outer diameter):
- CE Smith Trailer Hub Assembly for 2,700-lb Axles - 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern # CE13311
- CE Smith Trailer Hub Assembly for 2,700-lb Axles - 4 on 4 Bolt Pattern # CE13109

Grease Seal # 10-9 (1.500" inner diameter and 1.987" outer diameter):
- CE Smith Trailer Idler Hub Assembly- 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern- Galvanized # CE13315
