7000LB Capacity straight trailer axle beam with E-Z Lube spindles. Comes with spindle nuts, nut retainer, and washers. The difference between a 5200LB, 6000LB, and 7000LB axle beam is tube wall thickness. since Dexter Axle charges the same amount for all 3 weight class sizes we order ours in with the thicker option and have a max capacity rating of 7000LBS. Most trailer builders these days are building with this tube wall thickness which makes these beams a more universal fit. The components from all 3 weight classes will interchange with these beams whether you are reusing existing components or replacing with new.
Axle beam is round tube and tube diameter is 3". Our 7000LB capacity axle beams come standard with 5-bolt studded brake mounting flange that is compatible with all standard 12" trailer brakes.
Axle takes standard 1-1/4"ID outer bearings, 1-3/4"ID inner bearing and 2.250"ID grease seal - sold separately see related items below
Please note: when ordering replacement bearings - if using old drums
LM67048 outer bearing typically used with 5200LB 6 lug drum
15123 outer bearing typically used with 6000LB 6 lug drum
14125A outer bearing typically used with 7000LB 6 lug drum
Axle is designed to be used with sprung type suspensions. Comes with leaf spring seats loose that can be welded in place depending on location and beam tolerances. spring seats can be installed either under-slung meaning spring seats used on underside of tube, or over-slung meaning spring seats used on top of tube body. Having the spring seats come not pre-installed make our axle beams more universal than having to find one with the seats welded in the correct position.
Axle has a camber arch in the center, the upward bend in the axle is called "camber." Camber is the angular relationship of the wheel to the road surface in the vertical plane. Axles are built with a pre-determined bend in the tube that compensates for the expected deflection under load.

Please verify your axle measurements and tolerances before ordering
Pro-tip: The E-Z Lube feature is designed to allow immersion in water and is not actually designed to grease your trailer bearings.
