I'm wanting to change out the axle too on my 187rb, wanting to increase the safety margin, will be changing out the 14 inch rims with 15 inch to accomadate the load range E tire that IS NOT available in the 14 inch.
Do you have the axle part number for the 4400# axle that I may get a hold of?

[/QUOTE]I downloaded the axle spec sheet from Dexter and was comparing the 3500# axle (which is what we have) with the 4400# axle. It appears they both use the same bearings and the spindles seem to be identical on the two axles. The only difference appears to just be the diameter of the axle tube.
Has anyone one this upgrade before? Should be something I can do in the driveway with my plethora of floor jacks and jack stands.[/QUOTE]
