so finally got my rotors back ..

just for referance , rotors are for the /80's chev 6bolt light duty 1" thick .. (the heavy duty 1.3" thick wont work with the calipers ).

center hole has to be "bored" out to fit the toyota axle ..

so with that the new bearings

are "poped" into the bearing retainers

outer seal installed

and then pressed on to the axle .
