12 bolt backing plate

Can you guys help me? I have been searching for a few days now trying to get a parts vendor for a new passenger side rear backing plate for a 12 bolt gm truck rear axle. I can't seem to be able to purchase one anywhere. Any help?

Re: 12 bolt backing plate

Re: 12 bolt backing plate

If they just rusted wore out on the wear points. (slide area) sand blast them weld them back up. Old Truck fix backers. I bleave that no one makes them yet.

no they rusted out and got holes in them, need replacment ones.

Which BTW big shoutout to @1957Chief for sending me a pair of backing plates. The are a good fit. They will get a quick sanding, primer, and paint before installing. THANKS!
