Default New hub assembly, rotors and pads (pics)

I changed a hub assebly yesterday. First off it took a sluge hammer to get off my rotor. Then, as you can see in the pic, my old hub was in like three different peices i had to pry out. the rotors and pads were pretty bad as well so i did everything. Putting a new hub on is not as easy as the directions make it sound. At all. Expecially when your car has 175k and everything was rusted together. But its all good now.

you should have painted your calipers when you had everything apart. Nice job!
