Helpful Expert Reply:

The two Dexter hub and drums you mentioned do fit the same spindle as they use the same bearings and grease seal, but they have different capacities, and I verified with Dexter that the actual drum itself is different to compensate for the difference. So the correct hub and drum will depend on the capacity of your axle:

- 4,000 lb Axle: Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 4,000-lb E-Z Lube Axles # K08-426-91

- 3,500 lb Axle: Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly for 3,500-lb E-Z Lube Axles # 84546UC3-EZ

I have added links below to video reviews for you to check out as well if you'd like to take a look.
