YES IT'S NORMAL.
THE FRONT TIRE ARE THE ONES HITTING EVERYTHING FIRST INCLUDING WATER.
IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, YOU CAN PAINT THE DRUMS WITH WATER PROOF PAINT AND SEALANT.
RUSTOLEUM HAS IT.

Whot is the differance betwean a rear disc hub and a rear drum hub on a 99 focus


the only difference between a disc and a drum brake is that with a disc brake is that the brake pads are being squeezed into the disc to stop and with a drum brake the brake pads are being pushed on the inside of the drum to stop the vehicle

What kind of brakes are on my 1998 Cadillac Seville SLS? Are there disc brakes in front and back? or does it have drum brakes in the back?


Both, actually. In the front, disks.
In the rear the main braking is a similar disk, and much smaller is a drum, essentially in the hub area of the disk rotor. In there are cute little drum breaks that are the emergency or parking brake. Do inspect and adjust them, while you are in there.
Familiarize the feel and effectiveness of the parking brake before you start...so you will know.

Can you tell me if it takes special tools to remove the rear brake hub and brake line


No, there are no special tools required beyond everyday hand tools.

Raise the vehicle.
Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle If the vehicle is equipped with rear drum brakes, remove any retainer clips from the wheel mounting studs, then pull the brake drum off the hub and bearing.
If the vehicle is equipped with rear disc brakes perform the following:
Remove the two guide pin bolts securing the front disc brake caliper to the steering knuckle.
Remove the disc brake caliper from the knuckle and brake rotor.
Hang the caliper out of the way using a wire hanger or cord. Do not support the caliper by letting it hang by the hydraulic hose.
Remove any retainer clips from the wheel mounting studs, then pull the brake rotor off the hub and bearing.
Remove the dust cap from the hub and bearing assembly
Remove the retaining nut, then the hub and bearing from the knuckle's spindle

When buying rotors for a 95 Bronco 4X4 should the rotors be seperate from the hub or should they be attached as one piece? Im getting mixed info from part stores.


The reason you're getting mixed info from parts stores is because it comes both ways.
Look at the following to determine which one you have, 4 wheel disc brakes (floating front rotors) or rear drum brake model (except 4 wheel disc brakes):
Brake Disc (Rotor) REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Except F-Super Duty with 4-Wheel Disc Brakes Fig. 1: Secure the caliper so there is no tension on the brake hose 88289p22.jpg
  1. Jack up the front of the truck and support it with jackstands. Remove the front wheel.
  2. Remove the caliper assembly and support it on the frame with a piece of wire (or something equally secure) without disconnecting the brake fluid hose.
  3. Remove the hub and rotor assembly.
  4. Install the rotor in the reverse order of removal, and adjust the wheel bearing as outlined in Section 1.
F-Super Duty with 4-Wheel Disc Brakes The hub and rotor are individual pieces, allowing the rotor to be replaced independently. The front and rear rotors are the same and are attached with 10 bolts and washers. The bolts are tightened a little at a time, in a crisscross fashion, to an ultimate torque of 74–89 ft. lbs. (100–121 Nm). prev.gif next.gif

Need a power brake booster for my 1997 chevrolet blazer, having probs figurint out if the back brakes are disc or drums?


easy way to figure that one out, is to pull off a tire on the back, and look at it. If you can see the caliper at the top front, and the shiny rotor, then you have disc brakes. If it's all rusty, and looks like a squared off bowl with bolts sticking out of it, then you have drum brakes.

Rear brake disc replacement


are your brake pads squeezing the rotor? are your brakes disc or drum? in order to replace pads on disc brakes you need to unbolt the caliper. If you have drum brakes make sure your car is secured and make sure your parking brake isn't on...
