In order to find the replacement parts you are looking for you will need some additional information. For the axle you will need the capacity as well as the hub face to hub face measurement. You want to choose an axle that is the same length with the same capacity you have now. For example, if you found that your current axle is a 2,000 lb axle that is 72" long you could use the # T20BTR-7258 you were looking at.

Since you will have already found the capacity of your axle, you will only need the length of your leaf springs to find a replacement. This is the spring eye to spring eye measurement. Since your springs flatten over time, the replacement will be a little shorter than what you measure.

For the wheels, you will need to know the size of the wheel so you can use your existing tires and don't have to worry about clearance issues. You will also need to choose the right bolt pattern that matches your current wheels/hubs.

I have attached links to our axles, leaf springs, and wheels and tires for your reference. If you let me know the capacity and measurements I would be happy to recommend some replacements.
