I have a 2000 Sierra it has a one piece backing plate that was half rotted. I removed all hardware( caliper etc ) cut off old plate. I then bandsawed new one piece plate in half , attached two overlap tabs on the halves, and sprayed the outside surface with stoneguard spray to protect them. When you install the hardware the two halves will be held securely and the stoneguard will help to keep them from rotting off again.
Or...... do what the gmc engineers do , remove the rear differential cover drain the fluid, pull the axle shafts and replace the plates as one piece. About $100 extra in oil and gaskets. Thanks GMC..

I have a 1997 gmc serria 1500 4x4 5.7l i replaced the iac motor and it still reves up high could it be the tps


When replacing the IAC it is a self learning item the computer will teach. You need to do this to fix this problem first since you DID replace it. Have the engine good and cold (not hot) let set three hours if warm. Now we are ready. Place the parking brake on. Start the engine. Put your foot firmly on the brake. Put the car in drive. You will not go anywhere for the next proceedure. I do hope you have a tachometer. You will need to rev the engine in gear between 1100 & 1299 RPM's and hold it there for 5 minutes. This is the proceedure to have the self learning codes from the switch to the vehicles computer stored. When your done this truck should idle at 800 rpm's
