Replacement Spindle and Axle Options For a 3,500LB Trailer Axle With Bent 4 Drop Spindle


Hi I have a spindle that is bent and I’m looking to replace it and I have pictures of the spindle. I’m unsure of what type of spindle that I need.

It appears that the #84 E-Z Lube Spindle # TRU87FR is the correct spindle for your axle. You can confirm that this is the correct part by verifying the measurements of the spindle and brake flange. The landing for the grease seal is 1.719, the inner bearing is 1.378" and the outer bearing is 1.063". The brake flange bolts are 2-7/8" on center vertically and horizontally. This will also have a grease zerk allowing you to more easily fill your spindle and bearings with grease.

Depending on the overall condition of the axle you may consider replacing the entire axle. We have the 95" Axle # e83GR and 89" Axle # e53GR that use the same spindle listed above. They are also available with brakes and hubs 95" # e45SR and 89" # 8327812-EB if you want to replace those components as well.
