To find the correct replacements for your trailer, there will be a little more information needed.

First, you will need to know your inner and outer bearing numbers. However, these do ware off over time so you can also measure a few things to get this confirmed. The inside diameter of both inner and outer bearings, or the diameter of the spindle section they sit on, pictured below, will also tell you which bearings are needed.

Next you will need to measure the bolt pattern of the backing plate on the brake that attaches to the axle. Something like our electric brakes # AKEBRK-35-SA will install on a standard 4 bolt pattern, also pictured below. This will also fit inside a drum that measures 10 inches in diameter and 2 1/4 inches deep.

If you let me know what all you have for these, I can definitely get you the parts needed.
