    98 Blazer Spindle Install

    Guys im having trouble.. the belltech install sheet doesn't look like my blazer but i know i have the right parts. It's all the same until it goes to install the brake dust shield and rotor to the new spindle.. the pictures on the install sheet dont even show the rotor. is this right??

    Here is the install sheet (Pic 12 on shows no rotor):
    http://belltechcorp.com/download/2102.pdf

    Like in pic 13, my rotor would be where that nut is.. i dont understand..
    I know i have the sealed hub or whatever and that hub looks nothing like mine.. im stumped

    Also, the guy I bought the spindles from here didnt send one of the threaded studs or the locking nuts, so i cant really finish the job.. and its my daily driver.. anybody have these laying around??

    28 views and no help?

    I called belltech today and asked if there was ANY way they could send me these small parts.. he told me since I wasn't the original purchaser, they couldn't, but if I could fax them an original receipt they could...

    does ANYONE have a receipt for belltech 2102 drop spindles??? I got the front end on my daily driver torn apart and can't do anything until i have the small bolt and locknuts.... someone please help.. i can't get a hold of Blazin20z...

    Is there not a stock part for that? My suggestion would be to go to a local fastener store and get the part yourself. Even if the stock part is damaged they should be able to figure out what you need.

    wasn't sure if the stock bolts would work.. it actually looks liek this threaded stud is too wide to even fit in the back of the rotor...

    should i try just using the stock bolts?

    the belltech install sheet looks different than my rotor and hub

    Looks just like my 99.

    Pic 13 is just a pic without the rotor on and showing where you fasten the top nut onto the threaded bolt for the hub.

    i just didn't think there was room for a nut there.. my rotor and hub are all one piece i think... somethin just didn't seem right?

    did you use the stock bolts or the ones that came with the spindles?
    do you think it would be safe to use the stock bolts?

    would you use he one threaded stud at least on one and stock on the otehr? or wait and try to locate the threaded stud and do em both?

    Stock parts should be fine. The OEM will not want any problems coming back to the dealer because of wheels falling off.

    hey man i took a pic of my rotor/hub assembly just so i make sure im safe here..

    http://inlinethumb20.webshots.com/51...600x600Q85.jpg

    in that pic, the hub and rotor shoudl be able to separate correct? otherwise i dont see how you could put a nut on the bolt as seen here:

    http://inlinethumb60.webshots.com/43...600x600Q85.jpg

    cuz if they DO come apart, then if my thinkin is correct i can just use the stock bolt but put it in from the opposite direction as stock that way the bolt head would be acting as the nut... right?

    the rotor must be rusted onto the hub pretty bad.
    those should seperate.
    do you have any W/D 40 or PB Blaster ?
    if you do, spray some around the hub flange (on the front side of the rotor) and in the backside of the rotor hat (you can see the big round hub on the backside of the rotor, the lug studs go thru it...spray it around edge of the diameter of the hub).....soak it good and let it sit overnight or a few hours.

    this is what the hub bearing should look like when seperate.

    are you hitting the side part of the spindle where the balljoint shaft goes thru ?

    don't put the jack "tight" against the lower arm, atleast not so tight where it compresses the suspension.
