Identifing correct Pivot Lock Shoes

A contractor from Queens, New York says:
Hi, I am Danny.

I am working on rehabilitating 17 existing "Aluminum, Termo-break, Double Hang, Tilting Windows, and I need help identifying some of the parts I need.

I am including a PDF of the existing Pivot Lock Shoe that I need to replace for the 17 Windows, totaling 68 "Pivot Lock Shoes".

I also will need 68 "Spiral Balance".

The "Spiral Balance" I think it is easy and just need a confirmation that I have the "600 Series".

On the "Pivot Lock Shoes" I am very confused, and I will like to know which one from the one you sell is the equivalent of what I have,
AND also if you have a better one (better quality, stronger)that fits my windows, please tell me which one is the best from the ones you sell.

Also, can I use any kind of lubrication for the Pivot Lock Shoes to slide better and if so do you sell it, and if any other suggestions you'll have I will appreciate.

Thank you so much,

PS - Besides RED, do you sell other colors for "Series 600 Spiral Balance"?

Regarding the pivot shoe, you show the thickness of 19/32", if this is correct then you want our 15-047.

In regards to the Spiral Balance, we carry other colors depending on the weight of sash. If you give us the weight of sashes we can recommend the color tips that would be best for you.

On lubrication of tracks, we recommend a silicone spray and seeing as how you are doing 17 windows, I also recommend our charging tool 75-006
