Always check runout in the hub flange and rotor as part of any brake job. You may think you’re saving 10 to 15 minutes by not having to use a dial indicator and a micrometer, but your chance of a comeback can dramatically increase. In this module, we show how to setup and use a dial indicator to measure runout.
