brake question

Good day friends. I have a rear axle from a '74 camaro to use on my project truck. It does not have any brake backer plates. I have tried to find new ones, and have tried some to find old ones, no luck. I am told that newer car (camaro) disc brakes will bolt onto this axle. If so what years/models do I look for please? perley oldrodder43

That car uses the same rear brakes as a '64-'74 Nova, '64-'72 Chevelle, and '67-'74 Camaro, and clones. Backing plates for those can be bought from restoration suppliers or wrecking yards. Watch out for old Chevelle wagons, as some of them used 11" brakes, as opposed to 9.5" for the rest.

Not sure about the 11" brakes on wagons, but the Olds Vista Cruiser and Buick Sport Wagon used 9.5" x 2.5" rear brakes instead of the normal 9.5" x 2" rear brakes on other A-body cars. The backing plates are different.
