Each 6,000 lb Painted Steel Trailer Axle we sell is equipped with the Standard 5 Hole Brake Flange for mounting Trailer Brakes. The Castle Nut and Spindle Washer are included with the axle. Some of our Painted Steel Trailer Axles come with Pre-Mounted Spring Seats for specific measurements. The Axles listed without pre-mounted spring seats will include the spring seats for you, the customer to weld to your specific measurements. It is very important that you do not weld your spring seats outside the range listed. Using an axle to long may cause a leverage issue, leading to pre-mature bending or damaging to the ends of the axle. An axle that is to short will cause the tires to rub on the frame of the trailer.
