UH -OH axle experts?

Got around to readying my axles for install, I think I did not get what I ordered. You that are in the know, can you let me know if this is a low profile reverse mount? Thanks!

Looks like a reverse mount, 10 inch brakes. Not sure what you mean by "low profile", though.

Are you sure because the mount is opposite of the way it should be oriented? I don't think it is reversed.

Exactly, hoping somebody has a pic of some that they installed so I can be sure. Bought these in October and just now getting around to installing. Then again...maybe not!

Silverhoot,

What do the currently installed axles look like?

OK your flange is on the outside,that is what you need on the new axle,not what you have.Dave

Looks like you have a problem. I would have a talk with the company you ordered the new axle from.

Also, look at the distance between the flange and the "arm."

Is it a Dexter, Axis, or Henschen?

Take a look at the Application Manual on the Dexter website. That is not a reverse orientation flange and won't work (at least on the 70s models I am familiar with). Also, any reason you don't have a shock bracket? Some people don't know they are a Dexter factory option.
