just wondering how you guys get the rust off of the hub before placing off the rotors. I know when i worked in a shop we used the air grinder to remove it and then use antiseze. I plan on doing my brakes at home and dont have an air tank so can't use air tools and was wondering if they sell small grinders with electrical cords? (although that sounds like a stupid question lol)

just wondering what you guys do

You can use a 4 1/2 inch angle grinder with a wire wheel.

i never had an air compressor or anything

i just used varsol and that shti cleaned the rust off like nothing, the catch is you gotta put ur hands in that shit and scrub.

a can of wd40, and a shit load of patience is key. and i speak of experience.

WD-40 and wire brush. Scrub scrub scrub!

You can put a small wire brush wheel on a cordless drill.

Remember to wear safety glasses!

WD-40 works ok, but get something specifically designed to eat rust, WD-40 just displaces water.
