I too have priced out the axles, brand D and brand H, and really, the only place I'd save money is on shipping. This is for the #10 axles with the #11 spindles. Granted, this is for bare axles alone. I don't know the prices with the new brakes.

If one was to use the 10" brakes (as some have done if you look closely at their specs in the posts), then yes, there is good money to be saved.

47WeeWind, Thanks for reply. Evidently I didn't make myself clear. I fully agree with you and that is what I intend to do. I never did want a #11 axle rated below 4k lbs because of the minimal amount of rubber that would be left.
My confusion was from reading and listening to many folks who supposedly ordered axles comparable to the originals and paid less and got them within a much shorter time than I have been quoted by Dexter.
Sorry if I didn't make myself clear in my previous communications.
Hopefully my order will be place today and will be for a #10axle/3200lbs/22degree down/12x2"brakes/NEVRLUB bearings and one axle with parking brake option. Hopefully I can get the axle in time for the int. rally in Perry.

Live and LET live

Thumbs up

Took a 450 mile trip with the new Henshions the trailer had more up and down movement in my rear view, it had a nice soft & easy bounce.

The only PIA was the hitch had to be setup from scratch, with the increase in height of the trailer I would say in my case 4" the dual cams drop bar all out of wack.

This is the first time I found a need for a second step

Overall the fit was spot on the 35 degrees looks great and makes sense.

THey were a few bucks more, but only a few, my time is money also!

I think my Dyna beads are happier

I don't often agree with Andy , but he is right on with this issue, IMHO.
