    You might try Auto-Zone, they had the best price on 1/2 ton ones when I needed some a couple years ago. They come nice an warped right out of the box, though. Is this for a rear disk swap?

    Yes, the backing plates that I have can be used with stock e-brakes, Whitewhomper beat you to them though.

    I put used, under-spec ones on mine, they were free. I don't see any problem using them for a rear brake application, as the front does ~70% of the work. I had a couple friends who work at tire/muffler/brake shops keep an eye out for me for a while.

    If you get them there, make sure they don't need to be turned before you leave the store. They'll do it for free, but it's a lot easier to do it when you buy them. You'd think new rotors would be true, but?

    Autozone? Ew no. I don't even shop there anymore. All their stuff is cheap. You should see the rotors on my front axle from them. They are 2 years old and are worse then the ones I pulled off that were 13 years old. They have ridges in them and a huge gaps. I thought maybe they could be defective, but I think they just suck from what I have heard from others. I'd go with Napa's or anyone's besides Autozone......What about those drilled/slotted rotors? Have you considered those or looked at them? I hear they stay cooler and work better when wet. Would that work for your needs? I know they cost more but if they keep things cooler and cleaner then might be worth the extra change?

    Yeah, carparts.com has the Autospecialty slotted rotors. You could get a good deal if you find a discount coupon on <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.fatwallet.com>http://www.fatwallet.com</A>.

    The backing plates you need to hold the calipers. You can get them from TSM for about $140.00. Without these items, you have no way of making the disc system work. No way for the calipers to hold on and do their job with out these brackets.
