Easiest way is to take one drum off and look. Seals will have a part number on the outside that you can cross reference at places like NAPA. Bearings? Never ever needed to replace bearings. Properly cleaned and packed they should last for the life of the trailer.

Well you are lucky. I took my previous Kodiak to a local "tire place" to repack the bearings and they didn't understand the need to bearing play between 0.001 to 0.010 inch per Alko specs. All 4 sets of bearings failed and had to be replaced. TT bearings are not like bearings on a boat or the trailer you use to haul your mower around. Those tires slide sideways when backing in or cornering sharply, and if too much play there, will chip and fail.

Just because a tire dealers idiot mechanic did not know how to adjust play in a tapered bearing pack is no reason to carry around spares. BTW, all taper bearings have a standard play spec. There is no difference between those found on a trailer or on your truck. Over the years I have repacked a lot of wheel bearings and have never ever lost one using a good packer and quality grease, adjusting them by hand.

There should be a tag on the axle. You will have to crawl under and look on the axle tube. Both axles will be the same.

On my 2014 the tag is still there.

Dexter has great customer service. I emailed my serial number on the axle and they sent me the original build sheet and all the information regarding the hub, bearings, brakes etc. Just go to their web site.
