Wtf??

What is this? It looks like the backing plate has sheered away from the axle. see how the brake lines where twisted around the axle tube. My question now is do i need a new axle or just a whole new brake? Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks.Name:  IM000078.jpg

wow what were you doing?

the backing plate bolts to the axle flange, if the flange is ok then you can just replace the bad/broken parts

i did that once, well twice if you count that i killed both sides in the same incident. mine happened way back in 03 with an 03 truck

drunk + 4LO + parkin brake = lots of broken parts



i straightened the axle flange and replaced everything from the flange out. enjoy!

Did you have to pull the axle shaft out? Where did you find the new parts? This deffinitally sucks, Thankfully it was only the one side. Preciate the help!
