Gary, you make an excellent point. However
(you knew it was coming
), in my case, I had one broken return spring in an otherwise functioning system. I would have been torqued if I had had to pay $55 for a spring.
But that is not why I posted. Replacing one
backing plate is fine IF your other backing plate buildups are identical
to the one you are replacing. Everything I have read in the forum indicates the ones being made today are far superior to the four on my '67 Overlander. I assume superior means they brake more with less current.
So, if I had replaced one backing plate, and left the other three alone, I probably would have had uneven braking. So now I would be up to $220 for a spring.
Its nice to know where to get piece parts
