Don't see a grease gun in all that.

Maybe you should go ahead and replace them all now, and keep the removed ones for emergencies?

Does anyone know if this is the part # I need? Do I got 33" axles on my shit?

Call them they can tell you how to figure out spacing is 33 or 35 mine was 33"

Near as I can tell Mike, you should have 33" on center, which goes up to a 6k axle.

Looks like a trailer with 8 lug wheels and 16" tires stock would use the 35" kit. Chip and fly's probably have 35" centers.

Mine measured out to 33" on center, ordered a set today. Bad thing is when the stockers go bad they go bad quick. Just a wet shackle bolt runs about 4 bucks.... the price will go back up when the economy gets better, dont think there making much money at that pricing.

Guy I ordered from said dexter is really hurting with the economy and all the closed manufactures.

Is this a three axle set up? noticed that two of the center triangles have a different end on it to mount strait to spring my three axle set up has a floating center with shackes on both sides of axle?????

My warrior was set up like yours rick. The dune chaser has the set up as pictured above. I believe both ways will work, the one above is supposed to be the better set up. Just what I've been told? dont know why :buford:

The one with the yoke end goes on the front hanger yoke towards the rear.

yes mine is currently set up the same way yours is rick and the thought process behind the change in design is that the Dual Shackles on the center Axle allows that Axle to "float" in between the other two thus causing more wear on the shackles as well as the center tire. the design of the above pictured is supposed to remove that Floating.


current set up the Middle tire is the only tire that i have problems with it continously contacts the Flooring of the hauler, I am hoping this corrects that issue as weill

So, did you sleep with your shackles last night :buford:

If the tire is contacting the floor of the hauler, it would be best to block it some how to stop suspension travel before floor contact. Maybe a chunk of rubber to the frame rail? See how it goes first with the new kit :dude:

Please don't ever EVER EVER use bricks or blocks to hold something up. When they fail they do it in a split second and 100% failure. One second it's up the next it's on the ground.

Don't need no stiking Press

Only tools I needed

2 12 ton Bottle Jacks
(i used 2 jack stands and had the Bottle Jacks Snugged up under frame too as added assurance with all the tires off)

2 Floor Jacks (need these to move axles around)
ONe 4" C-Clamp (makes putting Back plate on Shackle Much easier

One 15 inch Adjustable
13/16 Socket
11/16 Sockt
7/8 socket
3/4 socket
15 in Channel Locks
1 small Screwdriver
2.5 pound mallet
Deadblow
ANd Rod for Removing Lip Seal from Hub

Piece of advice, Take one of the bolts you removed and the brass bushing and use that to Tap the Nylon bushing out nad insert the Brass bushing. Took 10 seconds each



And NO i did not use any Bricks
