Default Need axles

I have a Performance alumn trailer that is in need of new axles. I know that they have since gone out of business and they must be replaced by a similar product. I'm hoping you can assist in this-
I found one you offer-Tie Down #49963 that looks to be the one, the dimensions are correct, but I am unsure of the torsion arm degree. I see others vary on very similar trailers, how can this be verified?
I need 2 of them w/ brakes- do you offer any type of package deals? Everything I see is mainly axles w/ bearings, no brakes.

Thanks in advance

Chances are your axle is a Tie Down, does the old axle have removable spindles? I would say to call Tie Down to see if they can help with the verification, but they had a fire down there a couple of weeks ago and might not be able to help. Did you jack your trailer up to see if you can determine the arm angle on your axle?

I have looked on the on the axles themselves, to no avail. What would be the method for checking the degree by jacking the trailer? Measure from the level line to the top of spindle? Or use a framing square and try to get degree? Is it a very crucial # if it is different from current? I have to make a move this week- have some trips planned in the coming weeks. If you can assist, I am ready to purchase..

The start angle should be about the same. When you jack the trailer up, you can pretty much see what the approximate angle is. It just makes where the wheel rides in the fender well centered, give me a call when you get it off the ground if you need help.

5257180 Is the axle #

1561056 Is the brake kit I was looking at.

Can you confirm these are compatible and a decent package.

Any deals for THT guys? I'm ready to buy
