85 300SD Front rotor Repalcement

Okay, I now no longer have a garage of my own to use so must borrow a friends space. So I want to make sure I have all that I need.
That said I bought all the parts years ago and am now getting around to it so here goes. There was an article here that discussed the install and set up of new rotors, bearings races etc. It also discussed proper install of the brass ( ?) contacts that are in the grease cap. The one associated with the ABS. My ABS is currently inop and I want to remedy that before spring when my daughter will begin driving it occasionally. I would swear it was here but possibly not.
Thanks
Alan

Thanks for the info

VsTech, As always great help. I have all my parts and now I need to dig around in my storage unit to find my dial indicator and magnetic mount ( some of my helpers got a little wild during my move so I am not certain which tools are where) I am going to tackle this over the coming weekend. Any info on the tab inside the grease cap ? I thought there were specs on setting that up for the ABS to work correctly.

I thought those clips were to stop weird tuning problems with your radio.

I thought they had to do with static electricity, since all my old non abs cars have them.

the ABS is on the outside of the hub behind the rotor, that brass clip just pushes into the spindle, and the grease cap touches it to give ground to the brake wear light and eliminate static from the radio.

If you struggle to mount your magnetic base for your DTI on the car - get a heavy metal tool chest (or something similar) and place that next to the hub at an appropriate distance.

Good idea. All I have to do now is find the magnetic base ( I found my starret dial indicators ) I am hoping to do this on Friday or Saturday since It appears I will be outside and the temps plunge again Saturday night.
Again Thanks

Well if you don't have a magnetic base how about using a strong system of wood clamps / G clamps to hold the DTI in place?

All you have to do is make a rigid base so you get a decent measurement - just make sure you don't make life too difficult for yourself. You need to be able to reach the hub with out tripping over reinforcing struts.

I found it ! After spending most of the last few days going through boxes,crates, bins etc I found my Digital runout gauge and the magnetic base that goes with it. Since moving late last Summer every time I need to do a repair which requires a specialty tool that I know I have. It becomes a game to find out where it is ( stuff stored at various friends places ) I think after this brake job I need to turn my phone etc off and sort and reorganize my tools. It always a great opportunity to have my son ( 11 y.o. ) sit with me and help. I try to turn these into teaching sessions ( like the proper use of a torque wrench, the proper use of a wrench itself etc )
Thanks for all the input here.
Alan
