Torsion axles only have a few sources around the country. When buying an axle you could get a "loaded" axle meaning it comes with brakes. And if you want you could updgrade to disc brakes as well.
Use caution when buying after market wheels.
Most often, while they seem to be the same or adequate, you will typically find that their ratings are far below that which MUST be used on travel trailers.
The correct rating for a 15 inch 6 inch wide wheel with 6 holes on a 5 1/2 bolt circle, MUST be 2600 each, or more.
Typical after markets are 2000 pounds or less.
Electric brakes for travel trailers today can be purchased that are self adjusting.
Yes, they cost a little more, but you no longer have to adjust the trailer brakes as long as you back up the trailer every thousand of miles or so. They are available in both 10 inch and 12 inch.
Replacing brake magnets in older brakes today, is sort of "why", when for a couple more dollars you can get a complete backing plate, which is far superior.
