German term or phrase: Bremstraeger vs. Bremskloetze
What is difference in these components and how translated to U.S. English?

English translation:Below
Explanation:
As I understand it, the "Bremstraeger" is the plate on to which the brake friction material is bonded- back blate.
The Kloetze is a bit slang but means the whole brake "pad"- i.e. material and back plate together.
