Recommended Axle To Replace Older AL-KO 4400lb Axle # 402268


Im having trouble finding the correct bearing kit and brake assembly for my trailer. It is a 2014 Cougar Link with AL-KO 4400 lb axles part number 402268.

I have a replacement axle option for you, but based on the information I was able to find on your AL-KO 4400lb Axle # 402268 it uses an older style of braking assembly that was discontinued when AL-KO was bought out by Dexter.

If the brakes on your trailer are unusable the only option is going to be to go ahead and replace the axle to one that uses modern braking assemblies.

Since we do not have any 4400lb axles, I recommend using 5200lb axles as a replacement. We offer the Dexter Trailer Axle w/ Electric Brakes - E-Z Lube - 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern - 89" - 5,200 lbs # 8327820-EB that includes brakes, and hubs but you will need to confirm the hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center measurement of your current axle to verify the correct replacement axle.

The # 8327820-EB has a hub face to hub face measurement of 89" and a spring center to spring center measurement of 74" as shown in the included diagram. If this matches your current axle this would be a great all in one replacement option.

If the hub face measurement is the same but you have a different spring center measurement you can remove the pre-installed spring seats with the # TRSS300 and have them welded in the correct location by a qualified welder.

If you find your axle has different dimensions just let me know.

I included a video of the # 8327820-EB for you to take a look at.
