I'm just trying to buy a replacement part, and this model number is hard to find! Any help?

We should be able to replace this, though keep in mind that this is a special balance that will need to be custom made. Before we begin, can you just tell me how many you need?
A quick learner from Los Angeles says:
We technically only need one, but I've read that it's best to replace both (in order to ensure that the wear and tear is evenly spread). Is that what you would suggest?

Also, why is this so hard to find?

Yes, we also recommend replacing them both at the same time. 2 is the minimum purchase quantity we have for this balance, as well. I will send you a quote and order form.
