    Yeah, I used the mechanical press from Oreilly which looks like a ball joint press. I was done using a hammer after busting an $80 bearing. The loaner tool costs $400 but works great!

    I doubt mine can be turned then

    I doubt mine can be turned based on the limits so am glad I went ahead and swapped the ABS rings. We will see how it drives today with new brakes.

    How do you pull the ABS rings?

    I have already done all the work but the ABS rings. How do you pull these? I may look at having the originals turned as they don't look horrid.

    Thanks,

    Any advice on replacing rear brakes?

    I have done the front pads on the car recently so they are good. I am not as experienced doing rear brakes but think I will likely need to replace a lot of stuff.

    This started during that cold...
