Re: rear disk/caliper question
The rotor slides right over the bearing, no problem at all. You need to remove the axle shaft to remove the rotor though, and what does that take? 2 minutes? How many times do you plan on removing the thing anyway? I used a 4" angle grinder to open up the center of the rotor a bit so it would fit flush with the axle flange. I did not grind the axle flange at all. Then my weld on caliper brackets were $7 a pop from AA chassis. Loaded calipers from the parts store, brake lines, and new studs completed the job. I drilled the axle flange holes out to 1/2" so I could use a 1/2" stud.
