To start, the components of the hub and brake assemblies are identified for you.
How to check the hub for excessive runout is illustrated – runout is a bad wobble when the hub is turning. A special gauge is used to measure any wobble and acceptable tolerances are described for you.
Then the steps necessary to disassemble the hub and rear brakes are described and illustrated with photos.
The second section of the chapter deals with rebuilding the brake calipers. These hydraulic components are pivotally important for a reliable and safe braking system. As one racer told me, “Going fast is great, but stopping is better.”
All kits and replacement parts are identified by both part number and retail sources.
Since my hub was within runout tolerance, and turned with no noise, there was no reason to remove the hubs from the rear steering knuckle. The three torx bolts above fasten the hub to the knuckle.
