    Yes another question before I go ape ****. I was putting the stud through the hub and rotor. Stud thread was the same length as the old thread length. However ther is a bit of play between the rotor and hub. I havent pressed them in, just have been hammering away but there not tightening up.

    Sorry If it doesnt make much sense but im tired and frustrated.

    Thanks all for any help.

    Forgot to mention thesse are new rotors

    sounds like the hub needs to be replaced, sometimes new stubs have a little bigger splines on them that will work.

    They can be a pita sometimes. They are supposed to be pressed in. I have done it with a bfh before and came up with the same problem. You just really need to hammer on them. If that doesnt work...try getting everything back together....put the lug nuts on....get an impact wrench...and tighten the lug nuts up until the hub and rotor come together.

    If your hubs were bad then they would have been eating wheel bearings......were they???

    Well the axle is new to me. The wheel bearings look fine. No pitting or scarring. I think I may have pussed out and not hammered hard enough.


    On a side note, Im looking at a 20 ton shop press, nothing fancy but I think it would make my life easier
