Based on your photos, you have either our S380-29 or S385-29 . The only difference between them is the size of the bottom fitting, which is indicated on their respective store pages. You'll need to measure your bottom fitting to confirm which one is the better match.

Comparison of the S380 and S385 balance shoes.

Thanks for confirming. If your bottom shoe is less than 1", then that means your balance will have to be custom made. Basically it would be the same as the Series 380 but we'd swap the bottom shoe out for the 7/8" deep 15-029 .

Would that interest you? If so, please let me know how many you wanted to buy and I can email you a purchase link and price quote for that quantity.

Thanks, I'll send that to you right now. For lubricant, I recommend silicone spray, which you can pick up at any local hardware store.
