OBS Rotors

Are the OBS rotors (truck is a 97) floating or is it the whole big hub piece with the studs and bearing races inside it?

2wd rotors are one peice with hub and studs. 4wd Rotors are NOT part of the hub.

When you get your new rotors, you pound the studs out of the hub and rotor. Then you take the hub off, and put your new rotor on the backside, and pound the studs back in. The studs hold the rotor and hub together.

Hope that helps.

A guy named Blake, he just signed up here, but isn't on much. Its 4X4. I have the whole hub/rotor assembly off. To me it looks to be one piece. Unless its just rusted together that much. We beat the f**k out of it with a 10 lb hammer and it still didn't come apart, all that happened was we broke chunks off the rotor.
