How can I tell what size/rated axles I have? I am interested in upgrading the suspension links and considering MoRyde 3000 or 4000 system, but I see they are designed for specific axle ratings. Is there a way to confirm for sure what I have? Thanks!

There should be a tag on the axle. Also, it should be stamped into the axle itself somewhere.

There should be a sticker on the axle stating 6000# or what ever it is. If not you can call the mfg. with the serial number and they can tell you what the axle rating is....

Axles are normally marked on the curb end (right side). Some have tag, some are stamped.

Just took the drums off my new to me trailer to do the bearings and on the right side/curb side is a tin tag around each axle and also a spray painted stencil on the tubes themselves that say 5,200. Makes sense as they are 12" drums and 6 Lug.

There should be a label like this on the axle: 7 and 8K are the same with the exception of the outer bearing and most 7K have 1/2 lug studs, 8k will be 9/16.
