The rotors were very worn.


I replaced the front wheel bearings and races. It turned out that there were some metal burrs in the front left hub that were preventing the races from seating squarely, and that is where the wheel slop was coming from. I carefully ground the burrs flat and that fixed the problem when the new races went in.

It got new front and rear drilled and slotted rotors, rebuilt calipers (with red caliper paint) and ceramic pads, new ATE hoses, and new Lemforder parking brake shoes.

The brakes are now excellent!
