now the bearings..the 5200 pound are on the left. the inner bearings are at the top. these carry most of the load. the spindle thickness is what fits the holes. If the outer 5200 bearing and the inner 3500 bearing look similar in size, they are.

On post #50, look at the brakes. I have the 10 inch size brakes, but also, my brakes are self adjusting when putting on the brakes going Forward.......

I had no clue of these self adjusting (braking forward) being on my unit. Not a bad feature if you know that you have them and check and adjust them when needed. Since I had this unit I have taken trips to the Rocky Mountains and the Great Smokey Mountains. Do you think that I had to use my trailer brakes, a laaawwwt? Duh, you bet shaa I had to. If you have these self adjusting brakes, check them now for tightness..... It may save you from having to replace an axle/bearings/brakes..... and a day of break down while on the road.
