    Service wheel bearings with rotor replacement?

    Need to replace the front rotors and calipers on my '99 Trans Am. Too much high performance braking and high performance pads. If my wheels feel ok, no play, should I repack my front wheel bearings? How much do I torque the bearing nut if I do repack them?

    These cars have a sealed hub and bearing, so if you have no play and no abnormal noises, then your bearings are all good.

    If you have a problem you have to purchase an entire hub assembly. Like said, they are a sealed design that is not servicable. Another brilliant idea from GM
