Replacing Obsolete Trailer Spindles With a 1-3/8" Straight Spindle With Current Size Spindles  


I have a trailer spindle that is a 1 3/8 x 1 3/8 straight spindle. I have looked everywhere and I can not find anywhere that sells these hubs with bearings. I have seen several spindles that are 1 3/8 by 1 1/16 but that will not fit. Do yall make custom hubs or have these hubs and they are just not on the website? Thanks

I am going to recommend changing out your spindles for one of the current size spindles as your spindle is obsolete and no one is producing parts for it currently. This will be extremely helpful in the event of a breakdown as these parts are readily available. We have a few options based on your current axle capacity. I have included a 3,500lb and 5,200lb selection below and included both idler hubs and drum brake hubs.

3,500LB Axle Parts

Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly # AKIHUB-545-35-EZ-K
Easy Grease Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K
