I need replacement pivot shoes measuring 5/8ths inch deep, 1 & 15/16ths inch tall, and 1 & 1/4 inch wide.

Thanks for posting. Please see our 15-175 pivot shoe and Series 152 coil spring. This hardware appears to match what you have in your picture.
A quick learner from Chicago, IL says:
Thank you. Those are definitely the piece I needed. However, upon installation I have now discovered that I have a few broken sash pins. Can you recommend a sash pin to replace? Thank you

I'm not sure what it is you're referring to. Could you be talking about the pivot bar? These install on the bottom corners of the sash and are what connect the sash to the pivot shoe. If so, the 15-175 is compatible with many different kinds. I would need to see a picture of yours in order to determine which is best. If you can show us an undamaged version out of the window, that would be a huge help.
