Replacement Axles for Trailer With 94 Inch Long 5,200 Pound Dexter Axles

Question:

Looking for a set of replacement axles for a trailer I recently purchased. They have a Dexter tag on them with P-12, Model SLR, SN# D8653368. Looking for options. Thanks

I reached out to Dexter and found that your current axles have a capacity of 5,200 lbs and measure 94" hub face to hub face. Although we do not have a 94" axle you will be able to use the Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with E-Z Lube Spindles - 95" Long - 5,200 lbs # 6340624 without any issues. The only difference will be that your tires will stick out 1/2" farther on either side of the trailer.

This also has a spring-center-to-spring-center length of 80". If that does not match what you currently have, you can cut off the spring seats and weld on new spring seats # TRSS300.

Since you will be replacing the axles, I also recommend replacing your U-Bolt Kit # APUBR-8. These can wear out over time so this would be a good opportunity to replace them with new ones.

I have attached some review videos for your reference.
