45mm Square Axle Ford Bearing is manufactured in our Brisbane warehouse.

Parallel, Slimline or even American axles in plain or galvanised steel. When measuring from the face of the axle, add 100mm to this measurement to get the tip of thread to tip of the thread length.

Australian Axles are a little more expensive than China or Indian Axles. However, Australian made axles have a better profile finish resulting in a longer life for your bearings.

The Square Axle is perfect for your trailer, caravan or camper for loads up to 1450kg.

If you are towing your rig straight and true, perfect if not then below are a few tips.

Ford Bearing Common problem:

Too much weight will bend this 45mm Square Axle and cause it to experience axle flex.

Axle flex occurs when a heavily ladened trailer spring re-bounds on the highway causing the 45mm square axle to flex up and down, or vibrate in the middle of the axle.

Springs fatigue and fail prematurely under axle flex or overload conditions.

Our 45mm axle steel is sourced from Australian manufacturers (BlueScope Steel) and machined in our Brisbane workshops. If your axle is 45mm axle is bending, buy a 45mm square parallel axle and update to 1.6t.

It is not very expensive in comparison to replacing springs that will continue to suffer fatigue. Axle Steel explained

Other Common Problems:

  • If your 45mm Square Parallel Axle is not correctly engineered, you may experience excessive bearing wear. The most
  • Rough seal journals can cause a loss of grease through the rear seal.
  • 45mm Square Axle SL must be examined before installation for cracks in the steel along the axle. Some suppliers supply non-virgin steel or scrap steel and forge this steel into solid square or round shape for axle production.
  • Chinese bearings are the second biggest cause of axle failure. If you plan to get onto a highway, use Japanese bearings. The combination of Japanese Bearings and 45mm Square Axle will help you significantly with lower maintenance for your rig.
  • Are your tandem tyres wearing unevenly?
