came with breaks & hubs just needed the cables.
worked out cheaper than getting all the bits speratly as my axel was about 20 years old.
getting all new breaks was arround £100 for the shoes then about 30 for extra bits

Hubs cant remember how much they were. and bearings.

so it worked out better for me to get a new axel with all the bit already on it :-)

lucky you Jezza! i wouldn't grudge paying that sort of money! but i think over £500 including VAT seems a tad excessive! Would appreciate advice on aftermarket axles if anyone knows of any

cheers lads

I would get Trailer Guy to have a look at the photos first to get his opinion first, unless you are towing long distance I recon it will be ok!
I have just replaced my axel on my trailer as I wanted to change to tapered roller bearings & the old one had the brakes stripped out, I also paid much less just over £300 with vat!

+1 on letting Trailer Guy give you some advice. I understood that the rubber suspension bits run a fair way into the axle frame and that having an inch or so sticking out would be nothing to worry about. My trailer certainly has a bit protruding. So long as the suspension arm isn't coming loose or rusted to the point of losing strength I would have thought all it needed was a good service and a coat of paint. And your shoes look like they have loads of thickness left.

i may be being a rough arse but my understanding is that the rubber and axle are pushed in, try wrapping a ratchet strap around both arms to squeeze them both into the axle itself
