Well turns out I had used the wrong code for having the shock mount welded to a #10 axle. I had used the code for a #11 axle (E-1492) instead of E-1501 which is correct for the #10. Luckily I had found the correct code on this forum somewhere and advised them or else they'd still be trying to build a #10 axle around a E-1492 shock mount bracket. After advising that I had made a mistake with that spec and them probably assuming they were dealing with a DA, they started insisting that my 77" hub face measurement was wrong and that it should be 83". I pulled both wheels again and remeasured and sent photo of measurement. I've been assured that the order is back in line now and should have the axle delivered with 7-9 days.

thanks for the info.. I see the order form on the dexteronline site. I had printed off an order form someone else posted I found on airforums a while back I did notice some interesting differences.

on the section of "Mounting Brackets": there are three options.

Low,, 1" High,,, 3" High (2.2K & 3.5K)

So i was wondering if you can only get the 3" high option on the 2200 or 3500 lb axles orders only.. ?? So if you get a 3" lift kit plus the 1" high brackets you gain some 4" now.. WOW.. that will get you in the gas station without dragging and into some better boondocking spots now.

ALso there is the 32 deg down option adn on dexter site it not shown. ??

He had filled in all the info for a dual axle unit and in watching a video from a youtube guy we follow that did the 3" lift kit I noticed on the axle the same measurements as on the form. (this is a 2008 classic 30ft)

they also have options on grease, oil, E-Z Lube, or Nev-R-Lube. So which is best,, I was thinking you go with grease.. What is the advantage, disadvantage to the E-Z Lube vs grease type.

when you order form them how much is shipping for a pair of axles. I guess they are in Indiana area and we are in NC.

Carl,

Call your local trailer sales and repair places and ask if they deal with Redneck Trailer Supply. Redneck is a Dexter distributor. My guy gets several trucks a week from Redneck and there was no charge for freight. His price was good too. I filled out the order form and he ordered the axles for me. He had a guy that did the install on his lot for a great price. You could pick them up and install yourself or they may either do the install or know someone who can.

This thread was about axles and disc brakes, but post 38 may be instructive.
