Self-Adjusting Brakes Don't Require Routine Adjustment

Standard electric brake assemblies require manual adjustment of the brake shoes over time to provide longer-lasting and more efficient braking performance. With self-adjusting brakes, the brake shoes are always properly aligned, so there's no need to manually adjust the brakes after the initial adjustment. As a result, you get optimum performance without having to take the time to continually perform this type of maintenance.


Thoroughly Tested for Safety

These brake assemblies meet the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. These brake assemblies underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. These brakes have also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.


Automotive-Grade Friction Material

Each shoe on these brake assemblies is lined with automotive-grade friction material for improved stopping performance and longevity. The friction material is fully bonded onto the surface of the brake shoe. This lining is custom-molded for a perfect fit. The edges are tapered to ensure long-lasting performance. This taper, along with the circular grinding that the lining undergoes, helps to prevent cracking and crumbling. This durability helps to prevent mechanical lockup, which can occur when brake shoes are excessively worn or broken.


The friction material is also SAE-N certified, which means that it is an environmentally safe product that complies with California and Washington regulations regarding the composition of brake pads. As a result, this material not only provides high-performance braking that can endure the test of time, but it is also environmentally friendly and safe for use throughout the United States and Canada.

Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Brakes - Electric Drum Brakes - AKEBRK-7-SA Review

Today we're going to take a look at the 12-inch Electric Self-adjusting Trailer Brake Assembly Kit, includes the left-hand and right-hand side brake assemblies and they fit 5,200 pound to 7,000 pound axles. Electric brakes are easier to install. They offer more user control than hydraulic brakes. Basically they require only an electric brake controller which we do sell separately on our website. There's no actuate or hydraulic lines necessary. On the brake pads, they do use an automotive grade friction material. It's molded to the brake shoes and the pads are fully bonded so they're not riveted to the shoes.

It gives you a lot longer life, more braking torque. If you notice on the edges of these brakes they are tapered edges and then they do a circular grinding of the pad that gives you less chance of cracking and crumbling that could lead to mechanical lockup. This set happens to be self-adjusting brakes so they do not require the periodic manual adjustment like standard brakes. You can tell they're self-adjusting because if you look at this cable right here it goes around a pulley, attaches to the lever right down here which you'll automatically adjust it as needed. It does use a fine tooth brake adjustment gear so it allows for a more precise setting. There is no break-in period needed following your initial adjustment. If you notice on these backing plates, they are an E-coated backing plate, helps resist wear and corrosion.

They also include the adjuster plugs in the very bottom here. These are the holes that you'd adjust your brakes through, but they do put the rubber plugs in there and it helps keep any dirt and grime from getting into the assemblies and off of the shoes. This does include both the left-hand driver side brake assembly, the right-hand passenger side brake assembly, all the mounting hardware which is a 3/8 inch size mounting hardware which is total of 10 bolts, 10 lock washers and 10 nuts all included. This assembly does meet the QAI and CSA certifications. These are electric brakes so you'll notice the two wires that come out the back here, two black wires. They do need to be connected.

One goes to a good clean ground. The other goes to the brake feed for power. You can use either wire for either function. It doesn't matter which. The application on this again is for most standard hub and drum assemblies including Dexter, Lippard and Alco. The dimensions is 12 inches by 2 inches.

When they say that, what they're measuring the 12 inches would be the diameter so from this pad edge to this pad edge. The ruler on it is 12 inches. The 2 inches would be the width of the brake pad. There's your 2 inches. This is designed for a five-bolt brake mounting flange so your axle does have to have a brake mounting flange which is five bolts to install this on and it is designed for axles that are rated 5,200 pounds, 6,000 pounds and 7,000 pounds. The last thing I do want to mention is this is the left hand, this is the right hand. The way to tell that is when you get them new they'll have a sticker that will tell you that. By chance if the sticker wasn't on there, the easy way to tell is just look at the length of the pad on the shoe. This one goes from here to here. This one goes from here to here. The shorter pad, which is this one right here, is the primary shoe that faces the front of the trailer so that will tell you that this goes on this side which would be the driver's side or left-hand side. If you go to the right-hand side, same way. Just look at the length. Here's the shoe goes from here to here and over here goes from here to here. Again, this is the shorter shoe, the primary shoe, so it would go this direction. That will tell you that this is the right-hand passenger side assembly. That should do it for the review on the 12-inch Electric Self-adjusting Trailer Brake Assembly Kit with left-hand and right-hand side brake assemblies for 5,200 pound up to 7,000 pound axles.

These assemblies were a perfect match. Bolted right on and the materials they are made of seem to be comparable to the Dexter assemblies I removed. Only time will tell if they hold up. The pads on the dexter assemblies were coming loose from the shoes and curling at the edges. Hoping these will do better. Gave these a 4 because my main concern when buying online is that things fit and the materials are good. No issues with installation. 565668


Comments

I am glad I added these self adjusting brake kits. They seemed to have adjusted correctly, and from what I can tell, the brakes are working well. My 26 foot camper is old and pretty heavy at 5200 lbs dry weight. Seems to be braking evenly and cannot detect any pulling side to side or unevenness when I use the brakes. I am leery about giving 5 stars with only a year of use, but yeah, 5 stars at this point.

Brakes were exactly as they said on the website. I would say that I wish they had a cross reference from older brake numbers to the new ones. I received the brakes in 2 days using the free shipping and replaced all 4 wheels on my trailer. 417146

I am replacing the brakes on our 2016 Forest River Shockwave Toyhauler. After removing the wheel drums to repack the bearings, I noticed splattered grease covering the entire brake system of each wheel. Most likely due to me over greasing the EZ lube axles. The brake assembles I ordered and received were exactly the same I was replacing which made the job very simple. I made the initial adjustments then took the trailer out for a test drive to break-in the shoes. They feel better than new. Ordering was very straight forward and shipping arrived a day sooner than expected. I will continue to use etrailer.com for my future trailer/towing needs. Now I know how many pumps of the grease gun it takes to adequately lube each axle. 505053

Weve put on about 4000 miles on the 12 self-adjusting brakes and they feel solid. Travelling through winding canyons and mountain roads have not been a problem. I feel safe when towing my trailer and look forward to many miles ahead.

I sent a question to etrailer.com Re: brake assemblies for my 1964 Airstream RV. I got a prompt response explaining how to measure the old brakes on the trailer to correctly size the brakes I needed. Finding the size allowed me to research the hub & bearing assemblies I also needed. I ordered them all with confidence they'd fit. Installed the self adjusting Electric Brake Assemblies along with the Hub kit with bearings, All parts fit together perfectly. Thanks George. 419448

I’m very satisfied with the Brake and Hub Assy’s. I purchased from you guys. I recently had a question regarding Lug Nut Torque on the Hubs. I couldn’t locate any info on the instructions that came in the Boxes nor could I find this Info on the website. I looked in the FAQ’s area & also on the parts info page for the parts I bought. I like finding the Info myself, Usually after hours. I ended up having to call you guys. I talked to Sammie at Customer Service, She didn’t have the exact but did know where to get it. She sent me the Torque Chart with the Torque settings for the Hub and Wheel Type I have. I think that this Info Should be included in the box with the new Hubs and Lug Nuts, Plus easily found on the website. Your Videos and Tips are a Great Extra Plus for us DIY’s like me. I Appreciate Your effforts!! Thanks Again,

First step was the ordering, Talked to Steve and he was very well versed on what I needed. He gave me his direct line so after I got my bearing #’s and call back it took only minutes to finalize the order. I ordered on Wednesday and received everything on Friday. Wow, Great service. Doubled checked all the items and everything was perfect. Buying the assembly is the way to go. Very quick install. Great experience. 679952

These brake backing plates are great and really cost about the same as buying shoes and springs separately...but this way they come pre-assembled. These come with new mounting bolts and nuts. The nuts DO NOT appear to be of good quality and I would advise against using them. (use your originals) Replacing all four backing plates on my trailer, I broke out the digital torque wrench to torque the 5 backing plate nuts/bolts to the recommended 50ft-lb. At less than 30 ft-lb of torque, I noticed they would not get any tighter, although I was backing up the bolt with a wrench. I removed the nut to find the treads had pulled thru the nut, not cross threaded as I hand tightened them initially, but the threads just gave up. Bolts still looked ok. I replaced with my originals and all is ok. Don't trust these supplied nuts without verifying torque with a torque wrench. If I was etrailer, I would remove them from the kit. 468170

So Disappointed!! This is a review of my order experience, not the product. I needed to replace the brake assemblies on my camper before we could go on vacation. I call to see how long it would take to receive and was told 2 days. I placed the order and received as told. I was about to be impressed until I opened the box. They not only sent the wrong brand, but also the wrong size. I called customer service and had to wait 45 minutes for someone answer. She agreed it was their mistake. I told her I only had two more days to get them on and still go on vacation. I asked for next day delivery. She was able to do that, but said it would ship that day and go 2nd day. The next day, the order had not shipped and the tracking number I was given doesn't even register on UPS. I don't when or if I will receive the correct product. Very disappointed that they would not step up and make it right. 402822

Decided to spoil my equipment trailer with a new set of brakes. While searching the web I came across Etrailer mostly because their prices were the lowest and the website was easy to navigate. Shipping was free and amazingly fast. Ordered on Tues. and UPS delivered on Friday. Let me start by saying i'm no trailer mechanic! These brake assemblies were just what I needed. I watched the install video and the job went smooth and without any problems. I highly recommend this to anyone intimidated by brake shoes and springs. Just bolt on the entire brake assembly in one piece, replace the hub, a quick brake adjustment and your on your way. It doesn't get any easier! 358278

I had a very good experience with my order. Although I don’t have my brake assemblies installed yet they arrived in two days with no damage and seem to be of good quality. I also called to verify that I ordered the correct parts for my 5th wheel rv and they were very helpful and cordial. Will not hesitate to do more business with ETRAILER! 543598

I thought I had the right product selected and called customer service but was quickly informed that I would need a different style for my trailer. Glad I called. The shipment came in a timely manner. The parts all fit well and went together smoothly. Only problem was brakes would not engage when energized and after trying to troubleshoot I called for support and was told it had to be a problem with my ground. I was convinced that I had a good connection but upon further inspection the wire popped out of the harness and once it redid it the brakes worked flawlessly. Good product and customer service. 565186

I have ordered from etrailer.com on other occasions and for the most part what keeps me coming back in the pricing. They usually have the lowest price for the same original equipment. Be careful if you haven't heard that your product has shipped in a reasonable amount of time, even if their website says they have the item in stock. They will hold your order until they have all the parts to ship. I had not seen a shipped email for almost a week and when I called they said they would have it to ship in mid august, about a month after I ordered. I was told they had a similar item in stock ready to ship now if I wanted to change my order. I appreciated that and did change my order, however, I needed to know that information at the time they knew it because I had to change my vacation plans because I could not get the parts in time to take our 5th wheel. Overall this is a good place to order parts from and I will keep doing so. 414913

These are outstanding backing plates and brakes setups. I ordered four of these for my 1997 Sunnybrook fifth wheel. Everything is preassembled! All I had to do was adjust the brakes a little to get the new hubs over them and that was all. Five nuts to remove and replace. Great product! 382238


Comments

The Drums, Bearings and Backing plates I installed from your company have worked GREAT! I have not had a single issue with their operation. I even accidentally ordered the incorrect seals, and that was handled perfectly! Thanks so much for carrying and supplying QUALITY parts and having excellent customer service!

Brake assemblies were delivered fairly quickly, not totally pleased to find they were made in China. They were not packaged appropriately and had a couple of chips on lining. I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning them so I just put them on. I am going to give it a 2 star rating for quick delivery and price point for the product. I would buy again for a trailer that is not used often but would not recommend these for a heavy trailer. 545763

All I can day is WOW! Great customer service fast shipping with awesome prices and easy installation. Having never done anything like this before my wife and I were skeptical about the amount of work that would be required. However I have to say if you can change a tire and grease your bearings you will have no trouble changing brakes. Thank you etrailer! 557829

Ordered new self adjusting brakes and drums for our rv. Ordered Friday afternoon on our porch Monday evening. I've ordered from etrailer a number of times and have always been very happy with the products and service. Thanks!!! 566216

Originally wanted to just repack wheel bearings, so I pulled a wheel to find out which Grease Seals to order. Found brake shoes worn a lot. Because the price on a complete assembly was sooo reasonable, I ordered 4 assemblies plus seals. Turns out the other three (original) brake assemblies had blown grease seals. What a mess! Not to mention my experience of poor to no braking power! So glad I ordered new, complete brake assemblies. No mess, no fuss. Just pull old assembly, cut wires, replace new assembly, splice wires- Done! BTW - one of the new assemblies had a crack in the shoe - probably from being banged in shipping. etrailer replaced it right away and I returned the cracked one. What GREAT service! I have attached a pic of one of the old assemblies w the blown grease seal so you can see how reasonable it is to just buy and replace the whole thing vs. all the clean up that you would need to do if you did just the shoes. 513017



- AKEBRK-7-SA
by:

Brakes arrived quickly. After removing from package, I noticed the brake shoes on two of the four had come off the top pivot point. They had to be pushed back to their original position. On three of the four the self adjusters were not in their proper place either. But after being a mechanic for 45 years, I try not to sweat the small stuff! The hardest part of the entire process was removing twenty five year old worn out brakes from the cow trailer! Good thing I ordered bolt kits as well. 554521



- AKEBRK-7-SA
by:

Product GOOD Packing and ability of shipping company to deliver without damaging product not so good. It sure defeats the purpose of buying a complete brake assembly if I have to reassemble 3 of the 4. SEE PICTURES 529577

I replaced the (4) brakes on my 8 month old 5th wheel trailer due to leaking grease seals. While I was in there, I wanted to "upgrade" to self-adjusting brakes and this brake kit fit the bill splendidly. Installation was straightforward--simple and easy. Initial brake adjustment was easier with the new kit than adjusting the OEM brakes I was replacing (the adjusting stars line up with the adjuster holes in the backing plates on the new brakes--not so much on the OEM brakes). The self-adjusters work as they should--used to be I'd apply the trailer brakes only from time to time (in a parking lot or fuel station) to check on how the OEM brakes were working and whether or not it was time for a brake adjustment. I still check my trailer brakes in the same manner, however, I've not had to adjust the new shoes since the initial install...very convenient. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my new brakes and the service from etrailer. P.S. I've uploaded a set of "before & after" pictures... easy to tell the difference, eh? Have you checked your brakes lately? 486715

Received brake assemblies three business days after placing the order as promised by Ms. Chrissy J....who provided the finest customer service I've EVER experienced. Ms. J should be commended for her positive, can-do attitude and commitment to this customer! She explained how to measure the brake assemblies so that I ordered the proper size. And then she promptly ordered the parts and explained when I should expect delivery. She also helped me order for grease seals for all four hubs. All the parts arrived when Ms. J told me they would arrive. And, it is such a time saver to replace the electric brake assembly rather than rebuild existing assemblies. This is my second purchase of brake assemblies and it's always easier to remove four bolts and use a butt connector to splice electric to new assembly than spend hours replacing shoes and associated hardware. Chrissy J provides twelve out of ten level service. Yes, she's that prolific! 725435

Absolutely the best customer service team. I had to call a few times to be sure of the best part size. I ordered four brake assemblies. They arrived quickly and well packaged.

  • Difference Between Dexter and etrailer.com Brand 12 inch Brake Assemblies
  • Dexter brake assemblies like the part # 23-458-459 are essentially the best ones on the market. They use the best materials and and incredibly reliable and well-made. That being said the etrailer.com brand assemblies part # AKEBRK-7-SA are also very well made too. We have sold a ton of these and gotten very positive feedback on how well they well they work and how reliable they are. If it was my money I would go with these unless you want to have the absolute nicest materials money...

  • Replacement Hubs, Brake Assemblies, and Tire/Wheel Combination for Old Trailer With Dexter Axles
  • I have replacement hub, brake, and tire/wheel options to replace what you have on your Dexter axle. They will fit the spindle measurements that you sent me of: A is 3" B is 2.125" C is 1.75" D is 1.25" E is 1" The replacement hub and drum assembly that fits that spindle is the Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly # 42866UC3. With this assembly you will need to purchase the grease seal # GS-2125DL which has the smaller I.D. of 2.125 inches. If you have E-Z Lube spindles on your...

  • Comparing Dexter and etrailer.com 7,000 Pound Electric Brake Assemblies
  • The etrailer.com Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA and the Dexter Nev-R-Adjust Electric Brake Kit # 23-464-465 referenced in your question are both self-adjusting assemblies that will work to replace the existing Dexter brakes on your 7,000 pound axle. Between the two options I actually do recommend going with the etrailer.com # AKEBRK-7-SA and not only because of the much friendlier cost. One thing that sets the etrailer.com brand brakes apart from other brand assemblies, including...

  • Should 3,500 lb or 5,200 lb Timbren Axle-Less System be Used for over 3,600 lbs of Loaded Trailer
  • Since your axle will ultimately be under the weight of your trailer and it's contents you definitely need to make sure that it is rated for more than what you will be carrying. You need to go with the 5,200 lb weight capacity. For this we have the Straight Spindle # ASR5200S01, 4" Lift Spindle # TASR5200S03, and 4" Drop Spindle # ASR5200S04. This is compatible with the idler hub # 8-213-5UC1-EZ or the hub and drum assembly # 8-201-5UC3-EZ. I recommend going with the hub and drum assembly...

  • Recommended Replacement Axles for Old Dexter Axle #11 5,200 lb Torsion Axles
  • I reached out to my contact at Dexter Axle who said that based off of the numbers you sent in it sounds like you have a #11 Torsion axle rated for 5,200 lbs that is on a Haulmark Trailer manufactured back in 2001 (at least the axle was). Your axle should use 6 lug hubs with EZ-Lube spindles and that it has a 95" hub-face measurement with a 75-3/4" outside bracket measurement (which would be equivalent to spring-center). The closest thing that we have to this is the Dexter Trailer Axle...

  • Comparing The Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-7-SA To 7K Dexter Brake Assemblies # 23-465/23-464
  • The Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA are the equivalent of the Dexter 7K assemblies # 23-465 and # 23-464. They are actually a little nicer than the Dexter assemblies in my opinion because the brake shoe material is cut instead of scored and broken off so there is a cleaner line for less wear and tear at the edge of the material. They are absolutely compatible with the Trailer Hub & Drum Assembly - 7,000...

  • Electric Brake Assemblies For Dexter 6000 lb Axles With 12x2 Inch Drums
  • The brakes you are looking for are a standard size, so rather than getting the shoes and magnets for your older design, I recommend upgrading your system. I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 12" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 5.2K to 7K # AKEBRK-7-SA. These are really well made assemblies. The brake pad material is actually cut instead of scored and broken like other assemblies, so you get a better quality pad. If you want the current Dexter assembly...

  • Dexter 7,000 lb Axle Hub and Brake Assembly Recommendation
  • Does the spindle look damaged at all? Sometimes bearings can be a pretty tight fit to the spindle but there should be enough clearance to allow the bearing to slip on without needing too much effort. For Dexter 7k axles the bearing surfaces should measure 1.74 and 1.25. You'd want to make sure your spindle matches those diameters. Chances are the spindle may have gotten deformed from overheating and now it's not perfectly round.

  • Replacement Axle Needed for Lippert 5,200 lbs Axle with Serial Number 045-001684271
  • I do have a solution for you, however when I spoke with my contact at Lippert they said that your axle is rated for 5,200 lbs and the highest rated standard axles that we have are rated for 3,500 lbs. The alternative solution that we have is the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension # ASR5200S01. This system is rated for 5,200 lbs and can be used as a single axle or you can use 2 for a tandem axle trailer. There are a few great things about the Timbren system. It increases ground clearance since...

  • Replacement Hub and Drum Assemblies for AL/KO 8460 Hubs and Drums
  • It looks like Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly - 5,200-lb Axles - 6 on 5-1/2 Item # 8-201-5UC3 could be the right replacement for you. You can check the bearing numbers if you still have the bearings. If they are 25580 for the inner and LM67048 then this hub and drum assembly will work. If you have different bearing numbers let me know what they are. And if you do not have the bearings anymore you can measure the spindle with digital calipers such as # PTW80157. I have linked a help article...

  • Replacement Electric Drum Brakes for Keystone Raptor 5th Wheel
  • I checked the Keystone website for details on your Raptor model 3912 but I could not find this model's axle specs. Since you want to choose brakes with the appropriate stopping power you'll just want to check your specs for the axles' rating or look for a sticker or plate on the axle beam that will tell you its weight rating. Chances are the axles are rated between 5200-lbs and 7000-lbs each. Based on your photo (thank you) and the weights of Raptor trailers you most likely have 12 x...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring for Solar and Vehicle Charged Trailer Batteries with Inverter
  • I can absolutely help you with this trailer. First, I recommend using the Epicord 7-Way Molded Trailer Plug with Junction Box - 10' Long # 277-000141 along with ring terminals # 44-5310A. This will easily allow you to convert your 4-way wiring and also add your trailer brakes using # 10-1-1. Then you can use the 10 inch # AKEBRK-35-SA for the 4 hole mounting flange or 12 inch # AKEBRK-7-SA brake assemblies for the 5 bolt mounting flange. For your charging your trailer batteries from...

  • Replacement Brake Assemblies and Hubs for 1960 Airstream Trailer
  • It sounds like your assemblies are not the typical assemblies and will need to be replaced. For your brake assemblies, I recommend the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting # AKEBRK-7-SA along with mounting hardware # BRKH12. If you don't have the brake flange compatible, you can use the Brake Mounting Flange for 3" Round Axle # 4-44-1 which needs to be precisely welded in place. Then for your drum brake assemblies to match, I need some more information. I will need either...

  • How to Find Replacement Trailer Hub Assembly for Dual Axle Trailer with 6 on 5-1/2 Bolt Pattern
  • To ensure you get the correct replacement hubs for your trailer, you will need to find either the bearing numbers on your existing hub assembly or you can measure the spindle if these cannot be found. The bearing numbers should be stamped onto the bearings themselves. I have attached an image that shows what numbers or dimensions are needed. When measuring the spindle, I recommend using a digital caliper like # PTW80157 to get the most accurate measurement possible. For example, the...

  • Replacement Trailer Brakes, Bearings, and Seals for Dexter 6K Trailer Axles
  • We do have brakes for the 6,000 pound Dexter axle on your 2013 Open Range Roamer. That size takes 12" x 2" brakes. For a set of self-adjusting brakes in this size I recommend # AKEBRK-7-SA. The bearing kit for the 6k Dexter axles will be either # BK3-100 or # BK3-110. There are a couple of differences between these two sets. Set # BK3-100 includes a cotter pin and a 10-36 seal which has an inner diameter of 2.250 inches and outer diameter of 3.376 inches. Set # BK3-110 includes...

  • How to Raise a 2005 Jayco Jay Feather 18F
  • I do have an option for you but there would be no way to lift your trailer using your existing half torsion axle system as they just don't make anything to allow for this. The only option you have to raise the trailer would be to install a new system with built-in lift like the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System part # ASR3500S06 which will retain the same torsion axle design and install in a very similar fashion which you can see in the attached install video. This will be the...

  • Replacing Electric Brakes Shoes vs. Complete Brakes on 2005 Keystone Cougar
  • If you measured the width of your trailer's electric drum brake shoes as 2-inches this should be fine as long as the brakes' diameter is 12-inches. Such 12 x 2-inch electric drum brakes are quite popular on RVs like your 2005 Keystone Cougar. This size electric drum brake is suitable for axles rated from 5200-lbs to 7000-lbs and these are what are typically supplied on travel trailers. Brake shoe kits for this 12 x 2 size brake are shown on the linked page. For example, for manual adjust...

For a 3500 lb axle, you will want the Electric Trailer Brake Kit - Self-Adjusting - 10" - Left and Right Hand Assemblies - 3,500 lbs # AKEBRK-35-SA. This will give you both the left and right assemblies. There is a sticker to help you with which assembly fits which side....

The hub and drum assembly for this system is # 8-201-9UC3-EZ. For the brake assemblies use set # AKEBRK-7-SA. These are self-adjusting brakes, one left and one right. You will likely not be able to match up the bolt pattern between the trailer wheels and the Toyota wheels. Vehicle wheels also often have an offset whereas...

All disc brakes are powered by a hydraulic cylinder.
