Fixed. :thumbupmake sure that when you put everything back together that you do it according to the spicifed torque ratings. otherwise you risk having a tire fall off or burning up your bearings. also, REPLACE your bearings while you have them out. it takes two minutes to do and is great insurence for down the road. if you go to your local parts store they should have a haynes manual for your truck. this is very helpful with anything you will ever do on your truck. also be sure to pick up a special socket for the locknuts on the spine otherwise you will be making another run to the store later on.
:stupidWhy would you need to pull the toner ring? Just take the whole hub/rotor assembly in, they'll turn them just like that.
That's right. And I was going by the original thread of "change rotors" so I'm assuming we are not turning.:stupid
That is what I have done.
Now if he is trying to R&R the rotor then the hub needs to come off, just follow one of the write-ups that the other guys posted.
If you still can't figure it out, take the entire assembly to Napa and let them do it.
You could do it that way, but IMHO, its much more involved and risky.... I dont think seperating the hub and rotor and re-seating is a procedure you do if you are in a hurry.... to me, its much quicker and efficient (and less risky) to just replace the hub/rotor assembly with new or used and turned ones...Just out of curiosity, why can't he just bang out the lug bolts (you have to do that anyway to get the rotor off of the hub), slip the rotor off, slip the new one on, and re-seat the lug bolts with the lug nuts and the wheel?
Not that it's a bad idea to check your wheel bearings, but if you were in a hurry, or you just had your front bearings done or something.:shrug
Stepping on your brakes takes life away from the rotor... :shrugwell, I have heard that turning rotors is..well not really bad, but i guess takes away life of the rotor, because your taking metal off and making them thinner, IMHO it would be easier to get new ones......and well i dont have a problem knocking studs out with hammer, i break them alot...its lame...
