Sprung Axles: Light Duty

From 2,000 lbs. to 8,000 lbs., Dexter leaf spring axles are the benchmark of the trailer industry. Each capacity is tested to meet the specific needs of each application... and then some.

While straight spindles are considered standard for products rated above 9,000 lbs., Dexter offers both straight and 4” drop spindles for the D20. Suspension is accomplished through the use of both double eye and slipper spring Leaf Spring configurations, and can be mounted in either underslung and overslung configurations. In many cases Dexter has multiple tube and spindle solutions to safely handle the overhang customers desire. Leaf Spring axles are offered with several lubrication options, depending on the capacity, including E-Z Lube and standard grease.

Dexter is committed to providing its customers with the most durable, highest level quality and performance leaf spring axle on the market.
