Identifying Axles Used On a Carson Flat Bed Car Hauler For a Replacement Bearing Kit


Hello I have a standard Carson flat bed car hauler dual axle with electric brakes on 1 axle. I believe the axles are 3500 lb, but not certain. Is a there a way to verify this? I want to get a wheel bearing kit to freshen things up, can you pap it me to what I need?

The best way to identify exactly what bearings that you need is to locate the axle identification tag that is on the center of the axle. This tag will give you the serial number needed that can be used to identify exactly what parts are on the axle from the manufacturer. If the sticker is gone Dexter axles will also have the serial number stamped into the axle tube on the rear portion of the tube near the passenger side of the axle.

You can also pull one of your assemblies apart to determine exactly what bearings and grease seal you have in the hub currently. I have included an image that shows the location of the numbers on the bearings and grease seals. You can also measure the spindle with a Digital Caliper # PTW80157 if the numbers are no longer legible.

The Hub Bearing Kit # BK2-100 is designed for 3,500lb axles that have a #84 Spindle. It contains the following parts.

Inner Bearing # L68149 (ID:1.378")
Outer Bearing # L44649 (ID:1.063")
Inner Race # L68111 (OD:2.361")
Outer Race # L44610 (OD:1.980")
Grease Seal 10-19 (ID:1.719", OD:2.565")

If you need help identifying the correct parts based off your axle serial number or find that your axle uses different size parts, please let me know what you have and I can help guide you to the correct replacement parts.
