Option For 3,500 lb Dexter Axle Replacement


Good day, I have two trailer axles that Dexter might have made them. Dexter hubs have this on them. 8-249-05 5-5.50 BC The axles measure 75 spring centers and 82 to the back of the brake flanges. Im looking to replace both axles with complete axles. Thank you Charley


Expert Reply:

The hub you have is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 84557UC3, which is for 3,500 lb axles. The closest option we have to the measurements you mentioned is a 3,500 lb axle that is 74 inches from spring center to spring center, 82-5/8 inches from brake flange to brake flange, and 89 inches from hub face to hub face.

This axle - which your hub does fit - is available with either standard or EZ Lube spindles:

- Standard Spindle: Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with Standard Spindles - 89" Long - 3,500 lbs # T3584F-8974

- EZ Lube Spindle: Dexter Trailer Axle Beam with EZ-Lube Spindles - 89" Long - 3,500 lbs # T3584F-EZ-8974
