Recommended Hub Drum and Electric Trailer Brake Assemblies for 3500 lb Axle


Do you have a 10 brake kit for a 3500lbs axle that includes brakes, drums, bearings etc...? Thank you


Expert Reply:

The hub/drums and the brake assemblies are sold separately, but the hub/drums do typically include the inner and outer bearings, the races, the grease seal, the dust cap and the lug nuts.

A 3500 lb axle will typically use the L68149 inner and L44649 outer wheel bearing along with the # 58846 seal which has a 1.719 inner and 2.565 outer diameter. If this is the case, and your existing hub has a 5 on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, I'd recommend the etrailer # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K 10" hub/drum for E-Z lube spindles or the # 84546UC3 for standard spindles.

For brake assemblies, I'd recommend going with a self-adjusting brakes, like # AKEBRK-35-SA. After the initial adjustment or making several low-speed braking events, the brakes will self-adjust and will always provide optimal braking performance.

The installation hardware for the brake assemblies is sold separately. If you'd prefer not to reuse your existing brake mounting hardware, you can use the # BRKH10B hardware kit.
