Option for 3,500 lb Axle-Less Suspension System & Hubs With 6 on 5-1/2" Bolt Pattern


Hey guys, I did not see what I needed on your website, so I was wondering if you had it. I need a 3500 lb axle with a 75 hub face and a 48 spring width. I need it with hubs 6 on 5.5 and springs. Let me know if you have anything, Thanks

While there is not a traditional thru-axle in that size, we do have an option for you with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System which are simply bolted or welded so you do not have to worry about finding an axle that meets any specific measurements.

They also offer you an improved ride compared to a traditional through-axle because the Timbrens work independently so if there is a bump on one side of the road it won't rattle your entire trailer. The Timbren system also gives you a better ride because they have progressive springs that absorb shock better than a traditional axle.

Since you know you need a 3,500 lb capacity axle, you can use the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - 4" Lift Spindle - Regular Tires - 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S06.

Then for a hub and drum with a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern the correct fit is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84656UC3-EZ.

I've added links to video reviews for you to check out as well.

Hey guys I am look for a cheaper option than the axle less suspension. What are some of your options for building an axle or cutting an axle? Thanks

Unfortunately we don't really have a different solution for you. Our standard axle selection isn't terribly deep, so for something that matches the dimensions you're needing your best bet will be to check with a local trailer shop or fabricator to see if one can be made.
