Hey guys

I just recieved my new slotted rotors from hightek brakes (Awesome guys to deal with) and i want to tackle this myself. I also need to repack the bearings while im at it. Im confident i can do it but just wondering if anyone has any tips on installing them and more really in regards to repacking bearings like what grease do i use?? and how do i do it??

Any help would be great

Use wheel bearing grease.

I recommend getting new bearings, as the ones you have now are probably the originals, and I have heard of people needing new bearings 20,000km after they've installed new rotors. The bearings are around $20 a side.

New rotors normally come with the outer races already pressed in. If not its still a good practice to replace the bearings if you dont know hold old the current ones are. You will need the complete bearing kit (bearing and seal) high temp wheel bearing grease and split pins. its a fairly straight forward job if you have the right tools, if the races have to be fitted to the rotors its alot easier with the right tool and they will seat correctly meaning you wont have problems down the track with bearing adjustments.
