Question about 1989 GMC Suburban
Do I have to remove the hubs and expose the bearings before I can remove the front rotors and is there somewhere on the net I can go to find a diagram for this job.
I have had a similar problem on my 82 Jimmy when I wanted to replace my 6 lugs (bolts) on the wheel. I guess, you have to remove the hubs to bring out the rotors. I myself searched on the net for a detailed pic, but did not succeed. I however saw my mechanic do it on mine. You need to carefully remove the pins, sleeves, springs etc. in the hub. Some clippings / locks / pins might seem hard to take out, but little inspection would make it easier. Some special tools such as a pointed tip plier might be required to release certain pins.
Anyway, best of luck :-)
By the way, I am having problems with my 4X4 lately. I got the lugs changed and the mechanic seems to have mis installed the hubs. Now I sometimes have a grinding sound underneath, a couple of times (even when 2 wheeling and hubs released), Today the wheels did not lock and I could not get out of sand. To my embarrassment, a land cruiser had to pull me out. Can some one help ?
