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

You do need to take the wheel bearing nut off the spindle in order to get the rotor off and replace the studs. You can reuse the bearings and even the seal if you have to. I would take the time to clean the bearings, repack them with new grease and install new seals. Then you know it'll probably be good till the truck goes to Ford heaven.

It make me wonder if the party who installed your lines re-installed the lug nuts with an impact and over torqued them. I would suggest you loosen off the other side as well and retorque with a proper torgue wrench. You should check with a dealer on the torque specs, my pony is at 95fl/lbs but those are magnesium rims. You probably have the older rim that has a raised steel mating surface for the lug nut that helps to centre the tire on the rotor. It is really easy to overtorque that style of rim.

Some else may chime in with torque specs for that year.

if you service your brakes each fall they will last a long long time in a winter vehicle. pre 97 1/2 tons are pretty cheap and easy to maintain, if you can keep the body together . check your R side radius arm bracket for Rot!
made light and Cats cook off the paint...............

its a good beater

I would have never thought anyone would want to see an old Ford winter beater. I'll get some pics and post them up sometime tomorrow.
it has the typical Ford rust spots on the rear wheel fenders and the bottom of the door panels. What ever made ford decide to stuff foam down in the bottom of the panels blows my mind. Easy way to hold water and salt and rust away.
the pre 97 fords were a tough truck to kill!

If there's nothing wrong with your bearings, you just need to repack them with new grease. New seals are always a good idea though, just to keep the grease in and the water out.
