2015 23rb electric brake

doing bearing repack, found the two right (passenger) side electric brakes 'broken' in that the magnet and spring fell out when the brake drum was removed. left side (driver) brakes were just fine. 23rb specs say 4655 dry weight, 2145 cargo for 6800 max weight - that makes the dexter axels 3500 weight capacity. etrailer.com is recommending the AKEBRK-35R-SA replacement electric brakes.
two questions: 1. does this sound like the correct replacement electric brake? 2. has anyone encountered this problem before or have any idea why both brakes would break (pun intended) on just one side

Iíve seen that clip fall off on a random number of trailers and all brands of axles.

That P/N is a 10Ē brake assembly. Are replacing both on one side? I would do all 4 so they have the same wear on them. If the drums are good, no grooving you can re use them.

I would say yes. You can verify the distance between bolts to be sure.

ok, too lazy and too far to run over to my tt to measure so did quick google search to find relation between lug distance and drum size. but your suggestion sounds logical and clever - so what should the measurement be if they are 10 inch drums?
