Offshore built are available substantially cheaper.
-Remove caliper with 10mm socket, 17 mm backup wrench
-Remove brake pads
-Remove caliper bracket with 22mm socket and breaker bar
-Remove disc rotor
-Disconnect ABS sensor wire.
-Remove hub unit with 18mm socket and breaker bar
-Install new hub, torque to 120 ft-lbs.
-Re-connect ABS Sensor wire
-Re-install disc rotor
-Re-install caliper bracket, torque to 130 ft-lbs
-Re-install brake pads
-Re-install caliper, torque to 24 ft-lbs
Not only did this fix the disc rotor grinding on the caliper, the cruise control works again too.
dont really need to remove the brake pads.... I think you need a 31mm socket for the nut on the axel end as well.. brake cailper brakcte doesnt need to come off either, just the caliper itself and hang it off of something with some mechanics wire or soemthing to that extent
