Drum brake backing plates

Does anyone know what size nuts and bolts hold the stock drum backing plates to the rear axle housing. I can't find the ones I took out when I tore the rear end apart.

3/8-24

1 1/4" should be plenty long enough. Use grade 8 and use lockwashers.

Bpos,

Thanks for the info, I really appreciate it.

Will stainless nuts and bolts be strong enough.

Re: Drum brake backing plates

mine were 3/8" X 1" fine thread grade 8 with lock washers don't think you really need stainless they could gall up if you dont use antiseize

No. GM used GR8.

Feather-light suspension, Konis just couldn't hold
I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors
