The 35496A (Tie Down Engineering/Dexter Marine part number 49939) is a 3,500 lbs. drop axle that will lower the trailer frame once installed. The black powder coat finish and pressed stainless steel wear rings help protect the axle from corrosion and rust. The spindles feature zerk fittings for easy bearing lubrication without having to take off the wheels. There is a slight bend in the beam called a camber that will straighten out once weight is applied to the trailer to ensure even tire tread wear. This camber must be installed with the arc pointing up.
- Black powder coat finish
- Includes 2 castellated nuts, 2 washers, and 2 cotter pins
- Zerk fitting at end of spindles for simple bearing lubrication
- Fitting allows grease to easily flow to both the inner and outer bearings for a complete repack while purging old grease without removing the hub
- Comes with spring seats loose unless otherwise specified (welding is extra)
- Spring seats must be welded to axle beam before installation
- Used for leaf spring suspension systems
- Slight camber built into axle beam
- 4-hole flanges for brake mounting
- Hubs/drums sold separately
- Capacity: 3,500 lbs.
- Hub Face Measurement: 91"
- Flange to Flange Measurement: 85"
- Overall Length: 96"
- **Spring Center Range: 72" - 76"
- Beam: 2 3/8" Round
- Spindle: 1 3/8" x 1 1/16" flared
- Spindle Drop Distance: 4"
- Flange Hole Distance: 2 7/8" center-to-center
**The spring center range is measured from the center of one spring or spring seat to the center of the opposite spring or spring seat.
- Inner Bearing (sold separately): 68149 (1 3/8" inner diameter)
- Outer Bearing (sold separately): 44649 (1 1/16" inner diameter)
- Grease Seal Inner Diameter: 1.72"
NOTE: We will only weld within the recommended spring center range provided by the manufacturer. Going inside or outside of this range may cause the strength of the axle to lessen or even cause a complete axle failure. Welded axles are non-returnable for any reason. When installing the axle, make sure that the camber bow is pointing up. This camber is designed to deflect the weight of the load once weight is applied to the trailer, essentially straightening out the axle to prevent uneven tire tread wear.
