I need to replace a bent axle on my TT and in looking at the axle tag part of the part # states that it is to be "underslung". My understanding would be that underslung means that the axle is mounted under the springs and overslung would be for mounting on top of the springs. If I have this right then that means my axles were improperly installed because they are mounted on top of the springs. Could someone else with a Spree take a look at their axles and let me know how they are installed? There is a long number on the axle tag that has all the pertinent info. Mine reads: LCI35-SB-85.5-68.5-NOSP-US-L-545-72.9-30PT (The US is for "underslung" - OS would be "overslung")
I need to get this replaced in the next week so that we can go on vacation.
Why do you feel you have to replace the axle? Did you burn up a bearing destroying the spindle? That or a broken axle are the only reasons I can see to replace them. If you are seeing tire wear, take it to a truck/trailer shop and have the axles aligned.

I found the overslung / underslung answer.
The reason I need to replace one is that it got bent. I nailed a really bad pothole and now the tire is tipped inward at the top. The tire is rubbing the frame and obviously wearing unevenly. I actually had someone flag me down this past weekend to say that it looked like the tire was about to fall off.
