Option For 5,200 Axle-Less Suspension For Trailer


I have a utility trailer that the axle was scavenged out of it for another project. Now I want to to put this trailer back together. Looking for a 5000 lbs ish axle that is 62 1/4 spring center to spring center. The deck is 63 wide, fender outside to outside is 81 1/2.

There isn't a standard thru-axle with those measurements, or one that is close enough that you could move the spring seats; the axles are each far too long or too short. There is an option that doesn't require a thru-axle beam at all which I wanted to mention, which is an axle-less suspension system. There are 5,200 lb rated systems, and you can get a lift as well with them:

- Straight Spindle: Timbren Axle-Less Suspension System # ASR5200S01

- 2" Lift Spindle: Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # TASR5200S05

These are simply bolted or welded so you do not have to worry about finding an axle that meets any specific measurement. They also offer you an improved ride compared to a traditional through-axle because the Timbrens work independently so if there is a bump on one side of the road it won't rattle your entire trailer. They both come with a brake flange if you do want brakes, and for a hub that fits both the correct part is the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-655-6-K.
