I'm swapping in a 99 Explorer rearend and need to find new backing plates aka dust shield plates. For some reason I can find them anywhere. I did find some for a 95 and a 97 but would they be the same as the 99? The front plates are everywhere but nothing for the rear! Anyone know where I can find some?

Those would be nice but I need ABS. I can't understand why they are so hard to find! Somebody must sell them!

I'm confused:

There are no ABS sensors at the wheel(s)/brakes on a '99 Explorer rear axle. Everything is taken off the VSS at the differential.

ABS for your 2003 should be coming from the OSS sensor on the transmission/front wheel sensors.
