Hi everyone,

I'm in a bit of a pickle here.  I am currently having my Camaro's 12-bolt rear rebuilt and I forgot to source the original bolts, nuts & split lock washers
that secure the brake backing plates to the axle tubes.  All but one snapped while being removed.  One that I saved appears to be a grade 5 "TR"
head marking fine thread bolt.  There are eight ( bolt, lock washer & nut ) sets total required; four for each side.

Where can I get these on an immediate basis?  Originality counts for me here, so I want the right parts.

Has anyone else gone through this ?  Image shows only surviving bolt and correct washer/nut.

Thanks,
Steve

Well, here's an addendum to this post:

I just got off the phone with Paragon ( Corvette parts ).  They have a pretty extensive reproduction program for bolts and related hardware.

Unfortunately, they don't have these particular bolts in their inventory.  That seems strange because Vettes also used brake backing plates
on the rear ends.  But, they were disc brakes as I recall.

Still, any thoughts as to where I can locate NOS bolt inventory like this?  Huh

You can get these bolts from www.amk products.com, part # B-10169 , the bolts are same as except they have (E) head makings, the nuts are regular fine thread 3/8 nuts, the washers are regular 3/8 lock washers.

Steve, I might be stating the obvious, but I get a lot of this kind of stuff at our local "Pick 'n Pull" auto yards.  You might take a swing through you local yards and see what's there.

Well,

Based on the bad condition of my originals ( badly pitted & rusted ), what do you think my chances are of getting
good ones?  I am assuming that 10-bolt & 12-bolt brake backing plate mounting bolts are the same since the plates
are the same. 

If anyone has a sacrificial rear that they gets these 8 bolts & nuts off of, I'm your man.........  Roll Eyes

I checked this site.  They do offer a bolt & nut combo for the backing plate application, but they are not technically correct.  I am real picky
about the hardware side of things as this is where a lot of restorations run into difficulties.  If I can't find them elsewhere, I'll go with these
for now.  THANKS !

Here's their offering:
