Front rotor/hub/bearing swap writeup (Link at bottom of 1st post)

It started with a simple brake job. It ended up being major surgery and a lot of "as long as I'm in there" work. But it's maintenance that needs to be done on a 24 year old truck.

At this point, I've only done the passenger side. Lack of light (and waiting on brake hoses from the parts store warehouse) leaves me with the driver side to finish. I'm going to take another couple of pictures and add a section or two.

But for now, I have a good start on writing up my front end maintenance.

I finished up the other side. Took a few more pictures and finished the writeup.

Thanks.

I did a little editing to make it flow a little more like a magazine article.
