Rear backing plates are shot!!! Help me fix them!!!

The backing plates that hold the emergency brake pads are shot. One is about to break and the other backing plate where the pin holds the pads has a hole there the size of a quarter. So where did you guys get the parts and what special tools do I need? Parts are over $360 for each side from Ford. They don't sell the backing plates seperately!!! This really sucks and while I'm doing it I have one axle seal leaking so I will just replace both while I'm at it.

I have the extended warranty but it doesn't cover rust or wear and tear items. They would work with me on the price but I'm figuring I can do it just as good as then can for $115 an hour. So what kind of rear axle fluid will I need then also?

RockAuto Parts Catalog has them too

Go back to Ford and tell them to shove it.

Rear will be 75w-140 synthetic and friction modifier. Most likely you won't lose that much gear oil. Pop the hub off and jam a rag in the axle tube to keep it from dripping.

Edit: Just looked at the original post date, hopefully you got it taken care of by now.

You guys are AWESOME. I even looked at summit but I guess I was putting in the wrong thing to search. I just haven't been using the emergency brake and haven't had any problems yet. I do want to get these done once snow stops flying...

Good, it's not that hard at all to do. Look and see if you get new pins (the ones that hold the shoes to the backing plate) with the plates. I think I got them when I did my 6.0. But if you don't, sometimes the flattened end of the pin is rusted off and can't be reused.

The last set of Dorman plates I got came with the pins, but if you're in that far and things are dickered, you might as well change out the hardware, shoes, and pivots as well.
