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?

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.

I did not know I could get a shock bracket from Dexter. Have heard the shocks really don't do a lot, especially with tandem, so did not deal with it. Maybe if they have to remake the axles I can have them add it. Shock mount option is not on Dexter's order form, so I'm not sure how I would get it oriented exactly as needed.

In Dexter language it's called "Top Shock Brackets per E-1501"

You know your trailer had 12" brakes, why the change to 10"? and yes your braket is facing the wrong way.

It looks like you have a "high" profile mount, as it appears that the axle has a starting angle of 45 degrees.

What weight rating did you receive?
