Replacement Spindle And Hub For 6,000 lb Axle on Boat Trailer  


Hi, I have a 2002 Prestige 260 boat trailer and looking to replace my hubs and possibly the spindles not sure if they are replaceable. The axles on the trailer are Reliable Axle 6000# Torsion with disk brakes Caliper # CL-1000. If it helps, i used the BK3-310 bearing kit you sell. I hope this information helps and let me know if you need any more info. Thank you!

The information was helpful, thank you, and spindles are replaceable, they just need to be welded on by a qualified professional. In regards to the hub, there are a couple of options, depending on your current hub's bolt pattern. Basically, just if your current wheels fit hubs with 6 lugs or 8 lugs.

So for a replacement spindle and accompanying hub for a 6,000 lb axle, here is what you will need:

- #42 E-Z Lube Spindle with Flange for 5.2K to 7K Trailer Axles # TRU37FR

- 6 on 5-1/2" Bolt Pattern: Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # 8-213-51UC1-EZ
- 8 on 6-1/2" Bolt Pattern: Trailer Hub Assembly # 8-231-50UC1-EZ

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