Hello Enthusiasts,
I'm trying to get set for a rotor and wheel bearing replacement and need some clarification. I've seen it said that I should use a dial indicator to set the right torque on the hub bolts. Is there any particular brand of indicator that comes recommended or will any Pep Boys brand do?

Jonathan, I’ve read that you do not recommend the SKF brand bearing any longer due to the trouble you’ve seen out of them since they are no longer made in Germany. Check your email. Can you or anyone recommend a source for a quality wheel bearing?

What about Ruville bearings… good… yes… no? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I got my dial indicator mail order. The hub bolts are torqued with a torque wrench. Clearance on the wheel bearing (so it doesn't run too hot) is set on the keeper with a dial indicator between the rotor and spindle.

Get a indicator with a face scale that reads/measures it numeric in .0005 increments. :thumbsup:
