One thing I need to add. I installed the seals backwards like a noob. Maybe that solves it. Maybe not. I will know by Wednesday when the new seals come.
While I might just leave out the shields going forward it would be nice to know if the lip should face in towards the bearing which makes sense logically.
To get a send of the pad gaps. On the drivers side I removed the hub seal to see if it would improve the issue but if it does it is marginal. I included two pics below, drivers and passenger. The drivers side is the one with the larger gap. It slightly drags on the outboard pad. I don’t have the lines hooked up so there is no pressure from the fluid.
I have to call Scott tomorrow at SACC to get his thoughts.
