    Looking for drum backing plates for a 14 bolt semifloat rear end. I need the ones that have the emergency brake slip on connection, not that bolt on like the 14FF.

    14FF and SF both use bolt and and slip on type cables. The year split it '82 and older for the bolt on and then '83 on up for the slip on.

    How about I do make it easier for you? I've got some leftover K30 drums, backing plates with fairly new shoes, and brand new, still in the box, slip on e-brake cables, all for $200 and you pay shipping? These drums are 13 x 3.5 and ready to bolt on and bleed. Drums are also fairly new and very, very thick.

    I would do that, but I might as well go with discs then.

    Also, I just bought new shoes, and it is already a k30 rear end...

    I don't suppose you would just sell the backing plates?

    Sorry, hate to break up this setup as its in great shape and won't be worth anything if separated. Worth more together because it makes the search for the parts easier.

    I had a hard time locating these too and finally had to get 'em from the dealer. They cost ~$40 each and I just asked for backing plates for a 3/4 ton 84 Suburban.

    did the dealer have listings for 12" and 13" brakes. I have heard the semifloat came in both sizes. Do you have the 13" brakes?

    Actually, its 11" not 12".

    GM had 3 different size drums and plates on 3/4 ton axles, both SF and FF.

    11", 13" x 3", 13" x 3.5" with the latter being the 1 ton.

    So, is there a difference between the backing plates for the two 13" sizes?

    Yep, sure is. The 1 ton plates sit back to the differential 1/2" deeper hence the 3.5" wide shoes to fit the drums.

    Are they from the one ton 14 bolt axle? DO you have pics, especially showing the e-brake connection?

    DAmn good condition. The backing plates were sandblasted and painted black. The shoes are almost brand new and the hardware was still in great condition so they were re-installed. Absolutely NO rust anywhere on these brakes and stuff.

    Be aware when buying new shoes at parts stores, the 3/4 and 1 ton shoes can be over $50-$60 without the cores. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Thats affirmative. They still have the 13 x 3.5 drums sitting on them.

    Sorry, money orders only. PM me for my address info. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
