Put new brake pads on sons car Sunday and noticed backing plate is so rotted it is not holding brake caliper bracket/caliper firmly and squarely in place - so caliper bracket rubs against rotor off and on. RockAuto sells back pair for $78.00 Subaru online $110 for one. Wonder if junk yard had a good one if I could do better on $$$ - assume junk yard would sell entire knuckle hub assembly versus backing plate only.
If I get plate only I am trying to visualize - swap out - will I need some sort of puller to separate knuckle and hub to get at backing plate and then press hub back into knuckle? Any thoughts? , past experience?
