Dura-Torque axles are made by Henschen.
and back, mounting a Henschen axle requires drilling three 1/2 holes through the axle mounting bracket and through the axle mounting plate.
This eliminates the need to extend the axle mounting plate downward. When the new axle is positioned within the axle mounting plate, it automatically aligns itself.
Install the grade 8 hardware, and the job is done.
There are numerous variations between California and Ohio built trailer fom 1968
and back, regarding wheel well clearances, that require slightly different locations for the shock brackets.
Therefore simply install the new brackets in the same place as they were on the old axle, and it's done.
