I have a tandem axle Bigfoot and am about to service the brakes. the original manufacturer of the brakes/axle are Standen's. Will Dexter parts fit? Also Princess auto carry spares under the "quality" brand.Are they inter changeable? I am thinking of parts like the magnets and drums and maybe leaf springs.Also has anyone had the face of the brake drum machined that the magnet rubs on, if so did a brake shop do them or a machine shop?

I have a Bigfoot with Standens axles. All components are Dexter parts. I have had the armature surface of the hubs machined by my local NAPA dealer, about $20 per hub.

O.K Thanks Just a word of caution though the Inner races on my 1989 Bigfoot wheels are not the standard L68111 but L68110. I contacted Standens in the past and they confirmed this. I don't know what years this was the case. That's why I asked, everything else does look the same.

I priced a complete Dexter backplate/brake assy at the RV dealer, $80. I will probably change all four as that looks to be a good price. A single magnet is over$30!
