January 22nd, 2011 · No Comments

Step #1 Remove the stock Chevy front drums, brakes and backing plates. Clean and inspect the spindles for cracks or damage. Be sure to thoroughly clean out the 11/16โ€ threaded hole at the top of the spindle.This step is extremely important. Use a non oil based cleaner such as brake cleaner. Clean the threads out with a bottoming tap if necessary.
Step #2 Take the small support bracket and install it on the outer surface of the spindle in the two lower holes. Install one of the long (1/2 x 3) bolts through the support bracket, through the rear hole on the spindle and through the steering arm. Install the shorter (1/2 x 2 1/2) bolt in a similar manner through the front hole. Install the supplied lock nuts and tighten.
Step #3 Take the larger caliper bracket and install it as follows: Install the (1/2 x 2 1/2) bolt through the small support bracket, spacer and caliper bracket. Install a lock nut and just snug it.
Step #4 Install the 11/16โ€ shoulder bolt through the caliper bracket into the spindle. Now tighten all the bolts and nuts.
Step #5 Take the new rotor and inspect for any problems / damage. Install the supplied inner A6 bearing. BE SURE TO GREASE THE BEARINGS WITH A HIGH QUALITY BEARING GREASE BEFORE INSTALLATION! Next, install the bearing seal into the rotor. (HW7934) Be sure to tap the bearing seal flush into the rotor before installing onto the spindle.
Step #6 Install the rotor onto the spindle followed by the outer A2 bearing. Put the keyed bearing retaining washer followed by the spindle nut onto the spindle. Tighten the nut until there is a resistance to the rotor spinning freely and then loosen the nut slightly until the rotor spins freely. Turn the rotor on the spindle and check for any interference or minimal clearance between the inside surface of the rotor and the outer mounting bracket. Trim the bracket if necessary. Check for adequate clearance on the 1/2โ€ bolts also. Be sure to install the cotter pin onto the spindle nut to secure.
