rear disc backing plates
Posted 27 August 2003 - 10:57 AM
I think I need rear disc backing plates to complete my conversion.
The ones I have are welded to the arms (RX/XT6?). Not sure if I want to go that deep right now though the sway bar would be nice.
If anyone has an extra set to spare I'll buy em ASAP, would like to do conversion buy end on Sept for Rally X!!
thx a bunch!!

Give me a day or so advance notice, I can buzz by your place and lend a hand (anything to get out of the 100 degree Livermore Valley heat!), maybe hit a PnP or 2.

this wrx1ab's old project (parts doner), the three bolts are out.
it looks to have spot weld marks and a rusted/fused spot thru the plate, in other words these suckers aint coming off (at least intact)
so i am still in need of backing plates................keeping the conversion simple as possible
