Got the brake job started on the left side this evening and got it all torn down to the spindle. The old rotor has a 1.0mm - 1.5mm lip on the outer diameter, pulled the bearing cap off of the bearing, pulled the bearing out, no scoring or pitting on it, and it looks in great shape(but I will replace it), lots of crud down there to be wire brushed and degreased with some Purple Power or a commercial grade degreaser we use at work on engines, pulled the hub along with the rotor and will need to remove the 6 bolts that hold the hub to the rotor, removed the rotor’s metal shield and hung the caliper up to avoid stretching the brake line. I might change the brake line out due to age. Doesn’t appear to have any apparent issues upon a visual inspection. But...

To be continued...
