The Industry's First Serviceable Spindle
A revolutionary process for repairing axle spindles
Our Process starts with a phone call from the repair shop or truck owner in need of a new spindle. A UA certified spindle technician will arrive on location in their mobile service vehicle. The technician will begin by removing the spindle. Once the damaged spindle is removed, the axle tube will be machined. Threads will be integrated into the axle tube. At this point, the axle is transformed with an end that can be serviced over and over with spindles if needed – for example in the coal mine industry. The spindle is threaded into place torqued down to desired torque. Then, a final weld is made. The initial installation takes only three hours to complete from start to finish.
If the spindle were ever in need of replacement again it can be easily removed. The spindle technician would only need to cut the weld and remove the old spindle. Then, the new spindle can be threaded back into place. This replacement process is completed in under two hours.

Our Axel repair Process
The majority of roadside breakdowns are tire related. Properly identifying bad spindles can help prevent you from becoming part of this statistic. Red flags to watch out for include: metal shavings in hub oil, wheel seal leaking, or hub hot to the touch after driving distances. Running a truck on bad bearings increases the chance of damaging the spindle. Once damage has occurred options are limited. Either entire axle will need replaced or spindle replacement. Find Trucks Services Axle has revolutionized the replacement spindles and process.
The first step in the replacement process is the remove the old damaged spindle. We can then smooth and clean up the axle tube in preparation for the new threaded spindle.
After axle tube is prepared, the bushing is machined to custom fit the axle tube. Once the precise size has been achieved, the axle tube can now be threaded to accept the new spindle replacement. It is then threaded into the axle tube and torqued down to specifications.
Once the spindle is threaded in and torqued down, our technician can make the final weld. This will seal the axle housing for drives and air suppression systems.
Once our spindle technician has completed the spindle replacement, the vehicle is ready for wheel assembly.
