One trailer axle needs replaced--but trailer guys says I should do both??
The previous owner had lots of blow outs and my left hind tire always ran REALLY hot. So I figured as much. But apparently it was a tough diagnosis.
So anywho, I need to have the back axle replaced on my trailer.
(if it's relevant it's a 4h, GN, LQ/3 foot short wall)
The trailer guy says that I should have both done. In theory there is nothing wrong with the front axle. He was not able to explain why I should have both done.
He gave two comparisons -
1. It would be like having a car with new tires up front and bald tires behind...blah blah blah. Which didn't work for me.
2. It would be like have 1 of him at 20 years old and 1 of him at 40 years old. The 20 yr old will work better. blah blah blah. That didn't work for me either.
So I am left confused as to what I should do.
Anyone have insight on this?
Do I really need to replace what in theory is a perfectly fine and well functioning axle??
