    Hi yes but the question is.....where do you buy those bolt on spindles because they are not welded on are they?

    I can see how it would be a little confusing. We get into this mindset that every axle is a tube with spindles mounted concentrically because we see so many like that.

    Weld spindles onto a square trailer frame and the frame is now, by definition, an axle. Albeit probably not a very stiff one.

    But to answer your question, yeah, northern tool, and several internet trailer parts suppliers. Pretty common.

    Can you post a link because my link was wrong as nocheapgas pointed out the flange on that is for the brakes not a mount.

    I wonder how well a Torflex style could be adapted to this application?

    You can get them in various configurations. It would need to be stiff enuff to not bottom out.
    Unless it would be better if it was to steer...then never mind.

    This gives me a great idea for hubs for a motorcycle powered kart project.

    The hubs on the Uhaul dolly appear similar to the bolt-on hubs for rear axles of front wheel drive cars. They can be purchased at most auto parts stores.

    The GM hubs have lubed for life nonreplaceable bearings. Some older Chrysler products have greaseable and replaceable bearings in their hubs.

    Would these be a good choice?

    Would you just bolt em up with 4 grade 8 bolts and nuts to the uprights? Is that strong enough?

    Those would work. They can also be had at auto salvage yards.

    One thing to keep in mine is to have rims that match the hubs.
    Trailer rims usually have no offset while front wheel drive rims have as much as 3" offset. Using the wrong rims can cause premature bearing failure and/or clearance problems.
