For a 95" 5,200 lb replacement axle you can use the # e63GR. None of our axles match that spring seat measurement so you will need to cut off the spring seats and weld on # TRSS300 to match your current measurement.

If you meant a 4" drop spindle when you said "with 4," the only replacement option for the same length axle would be a 3,500 lb axle like the # 7685269. This would again need new spring seats # TRSS238.

If you're set on 5,200 lbs and need the 4" drop you could use the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR5200S04. This system fits any frame width and would replace your suspension.

Keep in mind, you will still be limited by other components of your trailer. Increasing the capacity of the axle will not increase the trailer capacity. Also, you will need new hubs or hub/drum assemblies like # AKHD-655-6-EZ-K along with new brakes # AKEBRK-6. Depending on your bolt pattern you may also have to get new wheels as well.
