Replaced the rotor on my front end (narrow track 30) but after replacing both inner an outer bearing. it's really off center when you turn the rotor. I had to have the spindle sanded on a lathe to get the inner bearing on but, in doing so the spindle was straight. Could there be a problem with the outer bearing. What else could be throwing it off??? The driver side is fine. Thanks, Mike

are the races fully seated in the wheel bearing hub..
you might need a new spindle.. did something happen to the old one? besides the sanding?

Jeepgod, I think you have the answer as my buddy did that side and he asked about the outer race. It's probably crooked. I'll take it apart and check it out. Thanks, It was strange though when the bearing wouldn't fit on the spindle, at first I thought it was a different spindle from the other one. It did have some hammer marks on it but not too bad back where the inner bearing fits. On the lathe it spun "true" with no wobble at all like it was bent.
