Spindle and Hub Recommendation for an Axle with Non Standard Spindles


I was given a couple trailer axles that did not have hubs on them, the inner bearing is 1.375inch and the outer is 1.250, with an axle tube of 3inch o.d. After looking at several parts supply sites I cannot find any hubs with these sizes of bearings together, is there a way to make the needed bearings fit a set of hubs? Id like to use 8 bolt hubs as I have 8 bolt wheels available. Thank you.


Expert Reply:

Based on the dimensions you listed for the spindles you have on the axles that were given to you we do not have any hubs that would fit.

The best solution I could recommend for you so that you could use the axles you have would be to replace the spindles that are currently on the axle with part # TRU37FR. Spindles should only be installed by a qualified welder with experience working on trailers.

For a 8 on 6-1/2 inch bolt pattern hub confirmed to fit this spindle you would want the part # 8-231-9UC1-EZ.

Check out the FAQ article I attached on determining bolt patterns if you are unsure of what 8 lug bolt pattern you have on your wheels.
