1993 ford f150 xlt 2wd.
Had some brake issues today with my old ford. Got all new lines on the front installed and everything was going good until............
When i first went to take the drivers side tire off i noticed i was down a wheel stud and a lug nut was gone. sheared off.
No idea when or why it happened so i figured i'd go out and get some new studs and lug nuts for the truck
After searching dealers, carquest, ideal supply, believe it or not Canadian tire had exactley what i needed.
Now i know replacing wheel studs isnt rocket science and shouldnt take much longer than about 15-30 minutes.
However i am stuck with the process to remove the rotors on the front. i searched all day online and only found info on 2WD trucks after 1997.
my question is this.......... do i have to remove the wheel bearing along with the rotor? I need to remove the rotor to hammer out the stud that broke, and i have done brakes and rotors on cars before and NEVER had to remove the hub/bearing assembly with it.
if i have to remove the bearing with the rotor can i reuse the old parts. This is only my winter truck and not really interested in sinking in more than i have too.
Too bad most of my mechanical knowledge is only on my '03 4x4 lol
