1994 SL2
Default Backing Plate (a.k.a. Dust Shield) Needed?

Hi Gang,

I've got a '92 SL2. I'm replacing the hub assembly on the right rear wheel. The "Backing Plate" as Saturn calls it rotted away years ago.

I can't find a replacement anywhere. Any suggestions as to where to find a new one?

Do I need one? I'm worried about offsets between the rotor and caliper. Could I use four washers of similar thickness to dust shield as a substitute?

Any thoughts appreciated.

-RF

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Pretty sure you don't need it or spacers, though now that I think about it spacers wouldn't be a bad idea.
Most of the posts I've read about the dust shield is from swapping to rear disks, so maybe look some of those up.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
