I also would like to replace/upgrade my drop axle to a straight axle on my 1990 Bigfoot 17". Did you happen to get a part# for the new axle? What was the length measurements you use? I have 85" hub face to hub face and 66" leaf spring set to center. While I'm at it I would also like to replace the brake drums and leaf springs. On your axle replacement/upgrade did you replace the brakes drums & leaf springs?

I'm not sure who you are directing the question to but I suggest you take your trailer to a Dexter dealer and let them take the measurements to make sure you get the right parts. I purchased a complete new axle assembly, which includes new brakes and hubs. I also had new leaf springs installed. More on that in this thread...

I also can't recommend a set of Dexter wet shackles enough. More on that here...
