    When I pulled my Hub/rotor assembly off, the rotor was loose and would move like 1/8" side to side...A couple of the lug bolts weren't pressed in all the way...What are the chances that the rotor mounting holes are elongated? Also, how much would it cost to get new rotors pressed onto the hubs...Thanks

    Was that a speed bump? No, just a Rice Rocket </font color=red> <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/gallery/fortcollinsram>My 87 Blazer</a>

    Hopefully your lug holes in the rotor aren't damaged and the other lug bolts held the rim in place and prevented any movement. The only way to tell for sure is to punch out a "good" one and compare it to the possible damaged ones with a micrometer. Don't reuse the "good" one you punch out if you do this; replace it, too.

    I assume you mean press new lug studs into the rotor? You can do it yourself. Just get some new lug studs (I recommend NAPA), tap them in lightly from the backside and take a FLAT nut (not the tapered lug nut) with a few washers and start cranking away, making sure it's pulling straight. A LIGHT shot of WD40 helps when seating the new lug studs. Also, it's easier to do with the rotor mounted to the spindle.

    Anyone feel free to expand or modify this...

    Good luck and let us know how it turns out!
