Default Explorer rear dust shields

Did the Expo axle swap a while ago but now one of the rear seals is leaking pretty badly - getting oil on the rear disc (not good)

When doing the swap the rear dust shields were rusted out. Tried to source some two piece shields so I wouldn't have to pull the axle but couldn't find any, so just went without. Since I have to pull the axle to replace the seal, I want to put on proper one piece shields but having a hard time sourcing them.

Expo donor axle was a 2001 I think. Anyone know of a good source for this part?

When I was looking for parts for my disc brake conversion I ended up buying those parts used (everything else was new and I really wanted them new too) but I settled when all the parts I could find were in the $400 range new.

I settled on Craigslist messaging anyone parting out an Explorer and lucked out, $40 for the complete setup (used everything else for the core charges) and the backing plates were almost new as they were coated in some thick oil.

Anyways, search for people parting out expos or worst case go to the junkyard, they are common so good parts are out there.

Thx for the reply. Would really like new since they shouldn't cost that much, but failing that like you I might have to look for used if they aren't rusted out.
