What is the purpose of this protective cover and did all gbodys come with it?

That horseshoe is a recall repair on the 78-80 maybe 81 A/G body rear backing plates. They are stamped with a hour glass cut out for the wheel cylinder. The wheel cylinder was known to loosen and rotate so prior to the "D" shaped cut out on the backing plate and to save GM money on replacing backing plates this was their "fix". My first 79 Monte Carlo went in for the recall and they replaced the backing plates along with using the anti rotation bracket. My 79 Malibu just got the brackets.
