Default How to remove rear brake backing plate?

I want to swap the rear backing plates on a 2002 that has the dust covers removed (to accomodate the Perrin Wilwood 2 Pot rear brakes) to another 2002. Is this a big job? Do I need any special tools besides the axle nut remover?

Answer to first question: Yes

Answer to second question: Yes.

You need to remove the entire knuckle and then have a hyrdraulic press, press the hubs out, swap plates and then press the hubs back in. You could damage the bearings in the process and may well need to replace them as well.

All that aside, why would you want to do this? Why not just remove the dust shields from the car the kit is going to be swapped onto. It only takes like ten minutes and requires no special tools.
