Yes.... also be aware that there are at leaset two different types , bolt on and snap on. The boxes are the least expensive part of the job get a larger box and leave room for future expansion....

Is there a reason you can't replace the box and breakers?

yes typically , what is the line feeding the box rated for ?
is that the line form the power meter ? a 4 or 6 circuit box sounds more like a sub pannel.


you would really want to at least take a few pictures of the current breakers as there can be new and old style of the same brand. if those breakers are 20+ years old just get a new box with all new breakers
