I must be missing something. Why do the hubs have to come off if you are replacing the rotors? Maybe this car is different from mine. If I am wrong and you have to remove the hubs, then you should consider new seal on the hub. On repacking bearings, more is not better. You would be surprised at how little bearing grease is required. The book gives it by weight. I usually place a dollup of grease in my hand and force the old grease out by wiping the bearing against my grease palm. Keep doing this until the grease comes out looking clean. My father-in-law taught me this from his days at United and a mechanic before they got the bearing greasing maching.

Let me know if the hubs have to come off.
