You will need to do some measuring to determine if the 10 Inch Electric Brake Assembly LH, item # AKEBRK-35L, is the correct assembly for your trailer. Measure the diameter of the mounted brake shoe, the width of the lining and the distance between the mounting holes on center. It may also help if you can determine the manufacturer of your brake. Once you have these measurements you can choose the correct assembly for your axles.

It is recommended to change both of the brake assemblies at the same time so that the brakes are both operating the same. If you mix old and new parts the braking may be different from side to side and cause problems. The 10 Inch Electric Brake Assembly RH, item # AKEBRK-35R, is the correct match for the part you selected.
