Hi. Welcome to the site.

In the upper right hand corner, next to the "Help" button, is the "Search" button. When you click on it, a small window will open. Go to the line that says "More Options" and click on that.

In the new window, Type replace + axle into the box, and click on "enter."

That will bring up one post is each thread with those keywords. Clicking on the Title will display that whole thread.

Sorry if this is short, but I'm writing this on my Lunch Break at work, and my Boss is comming...

Hi Verna,

Do you know if you have a.) electric brakes and b.) if so do you use them?

Generally the Trillium came with Dexter axles so I did a search on +trillium +dexter

I have a few good results including this one:

If it is Bolted on, it is somewhat easy.

If it is welded on then you have to have it removed and unless you are a welder, you will have to take it to a welder that is good with a torch and then after the removal I recommend that you have it installed so it will be bolted on.
