So I too need to replace my brake shield / rear backing plate, both in the rear and in the front.
Using the link supplied, I found the rears here
, priced at $71 per side. From what I've read here, the rear is fairly easy to replace...I just need to remove the rear hub w/4 bolts. (?)
What about the fronts though? Searching the forums here didn't turn up too much. What I found on the parts site is here
. What doesn't make a bunch of sense is that it lists that price as only $8.50 each. (Suspecting it says I need two of them because it doesn't differentiate left/right like the rears.)
Why ya think this plate is a fraction of the price of the rears?
Anyone have personal instructions or FSM instructions? Or should I bite the bullet and go to the stealership?
(The rears I can probably do myself. And I need to do it soon before the snowfalls. I don't want all the snow & salt getting into my parking brake assm that I finally got properly rebuilt this year)
