If you are attempting to do a rotor replacement keep in mind that you will need to replace the hub seals & try to take this as a lesson well learnt as I cant attend the ALL FORD DAY because of that f**k up.
I know some of you guys may say f**k it still go but lets just say the slotted rotors aint slotters anymore. :twisted:

Yeah, your hub seals need to be seated properly, so your bearing adjustment will be accurate.

well running the rotors with bendix ultimate pads (2sets) I wore a huge lip in the rotor & the slots on the rotors are worn flat.
