Question

I have a 78 wag and it has the q-track all wheel drive. It looks like I need to get the rotors turned because the brakes are pulsating as I stop. I am trying to remove them to take them to the shop and having some problems. Looking at the Exploded view in chiltons, I am at the OUTER LOCKNUT,LOCK WASHER and INNER LOCKNUT. Do I need a special tool to remove this? Should it pull stright out or twist?

First you need to remove the caliper. Then you use a special socket to remove the outer locknut then pull the washer out, next use the socket again to remove the inner locknut. Pull the rotor off the spindle and turn it over, remove the seal in the middle of the rotor, take the bearings out and clean and inspect them.

GM style 4x4 hub wrench is needed... about $20 for a good one with the '4 teeth' INSIDE the top of the hub wrench.

with this you remove the outer locking nut.. then finagle the lock washer off the bearing retaining nut... it's keyed with little holes to line up with the hole on the bearing retaining nut... so don't mix up the lock nut with the retaining nut...

I found that a snap ring pliers with straight pins was helpful for pulling and installing the washer. My retainer has a pin that the nearest hole in the washer has to go over. Had to adjust the retainer for the washer to line up with the pin and keyway. My rotors were shot, new ones from the 'zone for $20 each.

New rotors for 20 bucks??? I knew that I could get new brake calipers (including all hardware ) for less than $15. I had no idea that I could get those great big rotors for 20 bucks!

Thumbs up

At the Autozone you can get rebuilt calipers for $ 13.99 plus $ 10.00 core.
