It's like a built in insurance policy for the axle builders by pre-stressing the axle, when overloaded it straightens out and acts like an extra spring instead of bending. If you keep the trailer within it's limitations there is no need for built in camber on any trailer. Dave

    True story. A couple of months ago I was at the local independant welding supply and was talking to buddy in there about a rust-oration job I might have coming up, and mentioned to him about getting some rust rod to work with so I didn't have to change the bad metal. The girl behind the counter was trying to fill the order I had already given her. I wasn't really paying attention to what she was doing, after a few minutes of her looking through catalogs, she says "I'm sorry sir, but we don't seem to carry rust rods here" and I might want to check with Prax-air or Air Products to see if they carry them. It was really hard to control the laughter. Dave

    P.S. It's not my fault I don't Carry rust rods either, I just can't seem to get them locally.

    I did not replace the hubs as there was nothing wrong with them other than some surface pitting. I didn't feel there was any justification in just racking up these peoples bill for cosmetic reasons. The bearings, races and seals were all changed and repacked,and I changed the wheel studs as well . This should outlast the couple the repair was made for.
