06 F350 park brake backing plate rusted out? pics

See the picture... truck hasnt had the parking brake in it for over a year. It was removed when a part was lost on the road one trip, ordered the new park brake kit shortly after. went to install it the other day finally and this is what i find!

Can this backing plate be bought from ford new? Looksl ike its held on by the huge bolts that hold the hub onto the axle.

Common, you don't need any of that stuff, but if you do replace it, RockAuto is way cheaper than anywhere else. I had my mechanic just leave that stuff off, and just didn't have an ebrake.

Hello, I was just doing this job on my 2003, f350 w/ 110k miles over the weekend. I got the backing plate at a local parts store. I had the pins and keepers for the brakes get inside the drum and reak havoc when the right side rusted through. The plates were $65 for a set. I know of this happening on other fords and guys have left the parts off but i wanted mine fixed. Once the hub is off like you have pictured, most of the work is done. Remove the remaining 4 nuts and give the bolts a firm smack with a hammer. Removing the plate also requires a little help from a chisel of screw driver.Tightening the hub nut was also a concern of mine. I read in other places (on this site) the torque is 60ft pounds while turning the hub then loosen 7 clicks. 80ft lb on the axle bolts.
