  1. Remove the wheel.
  2. Remove the hub nut.
  3. Remove the caliper and suspend it out of the way.
  4. Remove the brake rotor.
  5. Disconnect the tie rod end from the knuckle.
  6. Disconnect the control arm from the ball joint.
  7. Remove the halfshaft from the knuckle.
  8. Remove the lower strut-to-knuckle bolts and remove the hub/knuckle assembly.
  9. Remove the ball joint.

To install:
  1. Install the ball joint. Torque to 91 ft. lbs. (123 Nm). Advance the nut as much as 60 degrees to align the cotter pin hole. Use a new cotter pin.
  2. Attach the knuckle assembly to the strut. Torque to 170 ft. lbs. (230 Nm).
  3. The remainder of installation is the reverse of removal. Observe the following torques:

    Caliper support: 77 ft. lbs. (104 Nm)
    Hub nut: 217 ft. lbs. (294 Nm)
    Caliper pins: 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm) Rear Wheel Bearings


    4-Wheel Drive
    The 4WD rear wheel bearings are serviced as a unit with the hub and are not replaceable. See the Halfshaft Removal and Installation procedure.

    Hybrid
    1. Remove the wheel.
    2. Remove the speed sensor from the axle carrier.
    3. Remove the axle shaft nut.
    4. Remove the caliper and support assembly and suspend it out of the way.
    5. Check the bearing backlash. It should not exceed 0.0020 in. (0.05mm). If it does, it must be replaced.
    6. Remove the 4 bolts and remove the hub/bearing assembly.
    7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Observe the following torques:

      Hub/bearing assembly bolts: 55 ft. lbs. (75 Nm)
      Caliper support: 58 ft. lbs. (78 Nm)
      Brake hose clamp: 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm)
      Hub nut: 217 ft. lbs. (294 Nm)

    DISK BRAKE:----

    Removal & Installation



    1. Remove or disconnect the following:

      Rear wheel
      Slide pin and caliper
    2. If the caliper is being replaced, disconnect the brake line and plug both openings.
      NOTE
      Depending on the brake type, there may be either 1 or 2 sealing washers.
    3. Installation is the reverse of removal. Torque the slide pin to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm). If the brake hose was removed, torque the union bolt to 21 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).

        You have rotors on the rear.

        You have to remove the tire first. Next, the caliper has to be slipped off the rotor then you can remove the rotor. Here is the steps for the caliper:

        Removal & Installation

        1. Disconnect the brake line from the caliper and plug it.
        2. Remove the caliper mounting bolts.
        3. Lift off the caliper.
        4. Remove the pads and anti-squeal shims.
        5. Remove the wear indicators from each pad.
        6. Installation is the reverse of removal. Grease the caliper slides and bolts with lithium grease or equivalent. Apply disc brake grease to the anti-squeal shims. Torque the caliper bolts to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm); the brake line union bolt to 21 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).


        And then this is for the rotor:

        Removal & Installation
        1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
        2. Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly.
        3. Unbolt and remove the caliper, but do NOT disconnect the fluid line. Suspend the caliper from the suspension with a piece of wire.
        4. Remove the rotor.
        5. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

        The hole has to be at the bottom, center of the brakes.

        It is the splined part at the bottom of the housing...
