The axel is going for $275 & tires for $333 Should I be thinking this far ahead before I start restoration work? Thanks for any suggestions.
The frame width on your trailer is 57 7/8 inches.
The 2006 is wider than that.
The mounting brackets cannot be moved without damaging the rubber rods, plus the overall width of the newer axle is much to wide for your 63.
