We had brake issues last season. Thank goodness for the exhaust brake on our Ram Cummins while descending from the San Diego mountains. 

I decided to not even fool with replacing components even though the shoes are hardly worn at all. The problem lies within the magnets. 

I looked on eTrailer to buy (4) brand new assemblies. Makes sense, and for less than $600- everything is new and simple bolt on. 

The problem is that they don't seem to have exactly what I need. After several emails with them, they threw in the towel. I'm dissapointed, and think there must be someone that has what I need. 

Does anyone else have a source for aftermarket brake assemblies? 

My 298re has AL-KO 4400# axles. The mounting bolt spacing is 2-7/8" all the way around. The assemblies they offer has different spacing. 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Dave
