Recommended Replacement Axle For 3500 Dexter Torsion Flex Axle


Looking to replace an axle on my flat bed car trailer. The ID tag on the current axle has the following markings on it. Dexter Axle P-12 Model SLR SN D 7352465 Do you guys have anything that would work for me? Thanks

I reached out to my contact at Dexter and based on the serial number you provided you have a 3500lb torsion flex axle with a hub face to hub face measurement of 94".

We do not have any torsion flex axles, but I do have an option that would work for you.

I recommend going with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Straight Spindle Only - 3,500 lbs # ASR3500S05 which will bolt directly to the frame of your trailer, and has built in progressive rate AEON springs for a smoother ride.

The # ASR3500S05 uses the standard # L68149 inner bearing and # L44649 outer bearing, so as long as that matches your current spindles you will be able to reuse your current brake assemblies and drums.

The easiest way to find which inner and outer bearings your spindle uses is by removing one of your current hubs and looking for the bearing number stamped in the face of each bearing as shown in the included picture of the # L44649.

If you would rather go ahead and install new brakes and hub and drum assemblies you would want braking assemblies # AKEBRK-35-SA, and hub and drum assembly # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K which comes with the bearings, races, grease seal, grease cap, and lug nuts to complete the installation.

I included a video for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
