How To Determine The Correct Axle To Replace Mobile Home Axles On Trailer  


Im replacing mobile home axles on my trailer with highway axles. My spring center length is 47 5/8. Is this a OEM measurement, or would a 48 trailer axel work?

I would be happy to help you find the correct axles to replace the mobile home axles on your trailer, but you will actually need to know the hub face to hub face measurement to determine the correct axle length.

The spring center measurement is for connecting the axle to your leaf springs, and as long as the hub face to hub face measurement is correct you can remove the preinstalled spring seats and weld new ones in the correct location.

For example the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with Standard Spindles - 89" Long - 3,500 lbs # T3584F-8974 has a hub face to hub face measurement of 89" and spring center to spring center measurement of 74". If the hub face measurement matches your current axle you would need to remove the current spring seats and have the # TRSS238 welded in the correct location.

If you can tell me the hub face to hub face measurement of your axle I would be happy to see if we have an axle that will work for your trailer.

I included a video of the # T3584F-8974 for you to take a look at.
