Front Backing Plates / Front Caliper Brackets

I don't really want to get these as they are foreign made stuff, but mine (my front backing plates) are pretty ratty, and might end using repros instead. I will prob end up getting my caliper brackets replated in Zinc Dichromate as they seem very solid.

Prices are out of whack though... Fusick has front backing plates for $89.95 a pair, ILT for $45.00 a pair, then feebay for like $20 - $30 a pair. What gives? Different source/quality? Where is the best place to get them? tx

I can probably come up with some decent used backing plates and if you need caliper brackets too. Let me know if you decide to go used. John

My caliper brackets are prob decent, they seem very solid. In re to front disc backing plates though... yes I think I will need them for sure. If I attempt to get mine blasted, it will prob ruin them. I mean they bend so easy.

In re to caliper brackets... what color were they originally? Gold Cad / ZinC Dichromate, or Tin Zinc color?

Have I reached my question quota for the day? LOL
