Bearing Size for 2200V Tandem Axle Trailer?

Most 3500# axles have tapered spindles, which means the rear bearing is larger than the front bearing. It's raining right now or I go out to my shop and look, but I thing they are 1 1/16" and 1 3/8". If you are changing the bearings, take a look at the spindle where the seal rides. Make sure that area is smooth (no pitting). If you find some pitting, you can sleeve that area with a S/S sleeve. That gives the seal a clean and very smooth surface to ride on. Otherwise, grease will leak out and water will enter between the seal and spindle.

Some trailers come with the S/S sleeve already on the spindle, mine did. If you need them, they are available on line or at most trailer dealerships. They just slide right over the spindle and rest against the shoulder on the spindle where the seal rides.
