[color=#000000:post_uid9]I'm looking at replacing the front rotors on my Astina, 1996 Hatch with DBA rotors, however no bearings are included. *Anyone can recommend a reputable manufacturer of hub bearings, with a reasonable price ?? *Mazda are asking $83.00 each ... too much ...

SKF don't have a listing for 1996 and recommended taking existing bearings out to get part-number, etc.

Any thoughts on this ??

thanks in advance, mike[/color:post_uid9]

[color=#000000:post_uid0]Correct me if im wrong,but dont the front/rear disks just slip off when the caliper is removed?
So the bearings wouldnt have to be touched to do this i take it,i could be wrong ???
Big Mal would know this,speak up big fella :p[/color:post_uid0]

[color=#000000:post_uid1]Yeah Theo your right mate. They are called a floating rotor
and will come off after the wheel and calliper are taken off.

[color=#000000:post_uid7]Yep, no problems !! It was just a thought from some guy who had to change bearings when replacing rotors on this older toyota. Not needed in this case, so I guess I was just jumping the gun ... so to speak ... Thanks for your replies anyhow. I will only have to change rotors over.

thanks, Mike[/color:post_uid7]
