Brakes for '73 AS Trade Wind

Help. I need all new brake assembly and drum. And shocks for a double axel 73 trade wind.
I'm hoping you will tell me what size I need and recommend brands and where to purchase them.

If you have the original axles it is likely they will need to be replaced also. If you jack up the trailer and the wheels do not drop down the rubber in the axle is hard and no longer able to provide and spring in the suspension. I have a 1974 Overlander and ordered them complete from Colin Hyde. Fairly easy to install.

To replace the shocks, you're gonna have to drop the axles anyway.
