Rear Disks

I got an exploded view of the rear disks on a '03 chevy 1/2 ton 2wd today because I was going to order the parts to do a rear disc conversion on my rear waggy 44. The part that was confusing is that there's no bracket shown to hold the caliper! I know it can't just be mounted to the backing plate! What's goin' on here? I wish I knew somebody with a brand new truck that I could start taking apart but I don't. Anybody have pics or insight?

All of GM's recent rear-disc types are quite similar. The caliper slides on the two bolts and "floats" in the cage that is rigidly attached to the backing plate. They also incorporate a small drum brake inside the rotor for the parking brake.

Heres the Blazer/Jimmy type:
