That is about right on the parts.... I bought 4 new backing plates(160$) and bearing /seal kits($100-+) for about 260$ total. I didn't need the drums turned they were in great shape. I do all of my own labor because there is no dealer at mile marker 123 on any highway in any state. I figure if one blows I know how to fix the problem. To repack the bearings is about 20$ in parts for the seals and greese. The races are no big deal to replace. You just smack them out of the hub like any race. I found an easy way to do it. Once I take the first one out I go over to the bench grinder and take a little off of it so it slides into the hub easily. The I use that one to put the new ones back it it fits perfectly. Happy Motoring.

Randy, when you say backing plates I assume for that price that you are not talking about a complete set with brakes and magnets. I have found complete sets for less than $70 but $80 plus is a little more realistic. I did damage, read ruin, one inner seal even though I took my time and was careful replacing it. Its not a hard job to do, a little time consuming, but it does give you the chance to give your wheels a good inspection and the piece of mind knowing that its put together correctly as well as knowing that in a pinch you can do it again.

Post The whole shabang !

No I meant the backing plates/with springs,shoes,magnets the whole deal.
If I remember right they are less than 40$ each. It was cheaper than the magnets and shoes at the local trailer store so I just bought the whole thing.
Thanks
Randy
