Can E-Z Lube Hub Be Used on Non-E-Z Lube 2K Standard Axle with BTR Spindle


Why is the EZ Lube cheaper than the standard in this hub. If I don’t have an EZ Lube Spindle would matter if I used the EZ Lube hub because it’s cheaper?


Expert Reply:

You can absolutely use the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles # AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K on your trailer with a standard axle/spindle. All the components are exactly the same. The only difference is the grease cap that comes with the EZ-Lube hub, # DC200L-DCRP, has a removable rubber plug, designed for easy access to the grease fitting on an EZ-Lube Spindle. Since your spindle does not have a grease fitting on the end, you would just leave the plug on the cap and use it just like a standard grease cap, # F001518.

As far as price is concerned, I couldn't tell you the exact reason why the price is lower, but prices do fluctuate and sometimes you'll find great deals on products, like this one.
