Why Build Your Own Axle?
You can use these DIY axle build kits if you’re building your own trailer from scratch. You can also use them to replace your existing trailer axles. Trailer axles wear out every two to three years. Remember, these times are just estimates and they change depending on how much heavy use your trailer is getting, and whether or not it is stored outside. Account for whether or not the axles have been in contact with corrosive seawater or road salt too. You should keep your axles fresh and in tip top condition by replacing yours well before then. This is important for your own safety and other motorists on the road.
