Channel balance replacement

A quick learner from San Diego, Ca says:
I'm trying to identify these top and bottom guides. Do you have them available? They're on a vinyl non-tilt, 1/2" (9/16") wide, 5/8" deep, 16" long guide with the numbers "1530 BSI" stamped on it (10-12lb sash weight I think).
I need to replace two balance and top/bottom guide sets. I have more pictures available if you need them, but could only attach 5 here.
Thanks for your help!

Thanks for posting. Before we can offer any suggestions, I will need a little bit more information about the bottom shoe. Please refer to the chart below and let us know which one is yours.

Thanks for the quick response. The bottom shoe seems to be # 15-004, based on wings and measurements.

Please take a look at our S385-16 with a 1530 stamp option.

Thanks Paul. That one looks close, except for the top guide. The top guide I have is square shaped, flat across the top. The one you suggested has a sloped top/front edge. Other than the sloped edge, it looks perfect though. Would that guide still work even though its not the same shape?
Thank you again for your help.

I believe that it would, yes.
