Thank you bluelightnin6 for the information. The bearing race removal tool (j-29117) you mentioned is it availible from auto parts stores, and is there a installation tool for the bearing races as well. I took the rotors off and it seems the races are not properly installed. The driver side race looks as if it was simply put in no force applied to it, and the passanger side race is in farther but looks likes it is at an angle. Would you know if the races should be pressed in (and how far) or just slide in.

Thank you again for the procedure.

Will need to press the race in. Yes your local auto part stores should carry the special service tool. The race should go all the way in until it can't go any further.
