I think I have decided on the titan Silver Cadmium tandem axle brake kit. These calipers have SS pistons so I think they will last. Now I am looking for suggestions for a good reliable place to order from.

I found them on etrailer.com but there is a 3 week wait to ship. Anyone have any other suggestions of a good place to order from?

Another choice would be:
http://www.humphreystrailerparts.com

Recently used Etrailer and Humphreys. Customer service and answering of emails was better at etrailer. But Humphreys had a slightly lower price.

Eastern Marine has both the tandem axle complete kit and the single axle complete kit. These kits come with swing-away actuator and brake lines included. Should be 3 business days to Louisiana.

hey eastern I did find the kit at your site and customer service was very informative, but I was informed you have no more in stock and they are on order so it would be 2 weeks or so if I order today and shipping is 105 vs free shipping at etrailer. So the wait is the same but the shipping makes a big difference.

thanks for commenting. I do appreciate the help

Shipping may be free at etrailer but there prices are higher as well. You should consider calculating out the prices delivered to your home from both companies. In my limited expereinces Eastern Marine was the only company to answer emails quickly and ship and provide tracking numbers within 24 hours of placing an order.

the price difference to my door is 41 dollars higher at Eastern, but I do agree they appear to have more knowledgeable staff.
