I believe cleaning and repacking are covered in the manual but it will call for a dial gauge to set preload. Most folks set preload by backing off the axle nut a set amount or by feel. I use the procedure in the Haynes W123 Diesel manual.

You might as well figure it out now because there's no way to avoid setting preload it if you're replacing the rotors.
