I have a manual for my trailer, but it doesn't mention the work you are looking to do. There are plenty of videos that give detailed info on doing those jobs. I've done each several times. A good place to start for parts is etrailer, it has the most comprehensive trailer part inventory that I've seen.
Are you rebuilding disc or drum brakes?

I have drum brakes also and just replaced the wheel cylinders. Rebuild kits was 8 dollars but I decided to just get new. I also replaced my bearings, and good thing about new bearings is you know what kind of grease is in there.

For this size trailer the inner and outer bearings are probably the same size, on larger trailers the inner is typically bigger.

The bearings usually have numbers stamped on them also. Don't forget the grease seals.

Good morning and Welcome.
I just redid the brakes on my trailer a couple of years ago and etrailer.com was very helpful.
Give them a try as they have a help line the they answered all my questions on quickly.

I usually just buy the complete backing plate assembly. It's a quick R&R.

Phillbo,
I would also but I had to replace everything as the PO did not do any maint. on trailer.
I replaced everything except the hard lines, just flushed them. Along with installing a electric/hydraulic brake actuator.
etrailer was very helpful with the purchase and advise.
It was the best thing I could have done as far as brakes.

Agree but you still need to do the bearings, repack or replace.
