    Trying to replace the drivers side brake backing plate for my 89 Suburban 1500 4x4. I've spent the past week searching the U.S., and I can't find one. Can I use a brake backing plate from a 2wd? How about from a 90 or newer? I've got mixed answers from the "experts". Original part # is 14055279. Thanks for the help.

    Just hit the junkyards. Any square-body 4x4 Blazer, Suburban or pickup will do.

    My experience with the junk yard was dissapointing, unfortunately , everything I needed was also 10 to 12 years old and in poor shape (axles) and all the dust sheilds were clapped out too. It is an awful lot of work to get to the sheild only to find it is no good. Keep looking!
