Spindle, Brake Flange, Hub, & Electric Brakes For Custom 5,200 lb Axle


I am building a custom 5200k axle. I am using a 2”x3” tube with a wall thickness of .250. I am needing to know what part numbers to use from your website so that I know I am ordering the correct items. Spindle for 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Trailer Axles? Brake Mounting Flanges? Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 5,200-lb E-Z Lube Axles - 6 on 5-1/2? can you use 5x4.5 in? Electric Trailer Brake Kit - 12inch - Left- and Right-Hand Assemblies - 5,200 lbs. to 7,000 lbs.?

We can get you all set up with the correct parts you need for your custom 5,200 lb axle, including the spindle, flange, hub, and electric brakes. Since you want to use electric brakes you'll need a hub and drum assembly, and it will need to be a 6 on 5-1/2" bolt pattern as there aren't any with a 5 on 4-1/2" bolt pattern for that capacity. Here is the list of everything you will need:

- #42 Spindle for 5,200-lb to 7,000-lb Trailer Axles # TRU57FR

- Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 5,200-lb and 6,000-lb Axles - Pre-Greased # AKHD-655-6-K

- Brake Mounting Flange for 3" Round Axle # 4-44-1

- Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies # AKEBRK-7-SA

- Mounting Bolts and Hardware for 12" Brake Assemblies # BRKH12

This will be everything you need, as the hub and drum assembly does come with the correct bearings and seal to fit the spindle, and is pre-greased with the bearings, races, and seal already installed.
