720 Front Brake Rotor Replacement Thread

Postby fastboatman29212 » Sun Mar 06, 2011 5:56 pm

This is a very easy repair. You can also work on bearings and brakes while you have the hub/rotor assembly off the truck.

You can now find all of my 720 repairs posted on a separate website. Link = http://www.720NissanTrucks.weebly.com.

Awesome, wish I had this about a year ago when I got my truck because it was sitting for 5 years and I had one rotor and caliber lock up on me. It was down to the cooling fins by the time I got it off. I wish i knew to put the rotor back on the tire to break the bolts because I ended up putting it into a vice to hold it while I took the bolts off. :gapteeth:

Awesome man!

Any chance you can give a little more detail on the repacking of the bearings though?

That's a separate post coming soon. I'm currently working on the following posts:
1. Brake hose change
2. Bearing change and packing (although 86 720 already has a DIY on that without pix on his build page. see link post5592666.html#p5592666
3. Caliper rebuild
4. Brake line bleeding

I bought my rotor at the local Autozone. RockAuto.com should have it too.
