In order to determine which replacement hub and drum you would need to replace your current parts, you will need to either get the numbers that are stamped on your bearings, or you will need to get some precise measurements from your spindle.

The measurements you need will be where the seal and bearings ride. Check out the picture I attached to see which measurements are needed.

I attached a video on removing and reinstalling trailer hubs for you to check out also.
