I concur, eTrailer.com will ship in just 2 days. If you can remove, inspect and regrease your own bearings, the next logical step is to remove the brake backing plate (5 bolts on mine) and snip two wires. Adjusting them after installation seems to be the time consuming task. Shoot 'em with a thermal gun after exiting at the interstate rest area, brake spoon down to tighten & up to loosen.
