will these axles fit my '68 Overlander?

Hi I vave a 68 overlander and I need new axles. (they show a rating of 2800Lb)

I found these ones "closer" to my town.
does anybody know if they will fit my trailer?

these are the measurements from my axles

I have a pair of Henshen torsion axles for sale. They have never been mounted or used. The dust end caps are still attached with factory grease on the axle. I got these with intentions of using for them for a project but they have not worked out. The wear on the axles have just been from moving them around the garage. Time to clear us some garage space!


They measure aproximately 81-82" from end cap to end cap. Wheel plate to wheel plate about 67 inches. Attached is a picture of the measurements. The following is inscribed on a plate on each axle:

Dura-Flex
SN #3-037655 (and 56)
3500 lb capacity
Model CAN 1970
"13"
Henshen Ind.

In my opinion, even if they physically fit. The 3500# rating is too much for your trailer. 3200# is more suitable for a replacement of 2800# axles.

No, they will not fit.

You have brackets that are 57 7/8 inches.

The axles you are looking at are for a wide body, which is 67 1/8 inch.
