backing plate

im doing a complete overhaul on a 96 f250 7.3. brakes never worked right and long story short, i found out someone didnt put the springs together right on the left rear and everything crushed together and it snapped off the backing plate where the e brake arm, and self adjuster cable are. They welded it back together and its a complete mess. Ford dealer says they discontinued the backing plate for these trucks. ive tried everywhere and the local junkyards dont even wanna check unless i agree to but a whole rearend! any ideas??

Re: backing plate

So you need just a backing plate? I should have one laying around somewhere.

i did the rear disc conversion. tsm manufacturing makes one and so does blackbird custom trucks. you could also build one yourself. if you need a backing plate i have one too
