The brakes you have now are 10 x 2-1/4 inch brakes with a 4-bolt pattern. For a left and right replacement I recommend our house brand # AKEBRK-35-SA. These are also self-adjusting brakes so after the initial manual adjustment they will not have to be adjusted again. I have included a link to a video review of these brakes for you.

The Dexter version for the set is # 23-468-469.

For manually adjusted brakes the etrailer set is # AKEBRK-35 and the Dexter set is # 23-26-27.

One of the biggest differences between the etrailer brakes and the Dexter brakes is the pad material. On the etrailer brakes the sections are cut which creates cleaner edges that are less likely to chip or crack. On the Dexter material the sections are snapped off which can weaken the edges and leads to chips and cracks.
