Your trailer originally came with a 4000 lb axle. This would be a nominal 5000 lb axle de-rated to 4000 lbs. Axles are de-rated during the fabrication process by shortening the rubber rods before assembly. Depending on the direction of your restoration/refurbishment, you may want to up-rate your new axle to suit your current or expected final weight.
