No Replacement Hub Exists so How to Find New Axle  


Trying to identify what hub set i will need 5x5.5 for this tapered axle, the bearings that were on it are as follows Outer LM12749 Inner JL26749F Thank you in advance

I'm guessing that's quite a bit older, as a hub that uses those bearings does not exist, so you have to replace your axle. In order to choose the correct replacement axle for your trailer you will need to know the dimensions of your current axle's hub face to hub face and spring center to spring center,

The other thing you need to know is the weight capacity of the axle you need, which should match or exceed the GVWR of your trailer. For example, the Dexter Trailer Axle # T3584F-8974 has a 3,500 lb capacity and measures 89 inches from hub face to hub face and 74 inches from spring center to spring center.

I've added a link to our selection of axles for you.
