Remove wheels and separate brake calipers from carrier as outlined in Repair Manual Group 44 - Wheels, Tires, Vehicle Alignment and Group 46 -

Brake Disc Inspection

A detailed brake disc inspection is needed to determine if the brake disc should be machined or replaced. Inspect brake disc friction surfaces on both
sides of the brake disc for:

^

Severe discoloration (bluing)

^

High heat surface damage (raised hard spots)

^

Visible cracks

Brake discs showing any of the above described conditions MUST be replaced.

Disc Thickness Measuring

Each brake disc has the minimum allowed thickness cast, stamped or laser-etched into the disc hub.

^

Measure the brake disc thickness in 4 locations using either the Pro Cut International(TM) disc thickness measuring tool Part No. 50-902 or the
Hunter Engineering Company disc thickness measuring tool Part No. 25-99-2. Measurements MUST be taken the same distance from the brake
disc outer circumference to ensure consistency.
