|amc49||Just rusted on solid, all Focus discs flop around loose on hub until the wheel put on. The wheel pins them down tight. Later they rust to stick but some don't.|

|Red01Focus||noticed the drivers side doesn't have the same amount of play on it even after i removed the wheel,caliper and pads its on solid no wiggle at all|

|Red01Focus||started to rain so just trying to finish putting them back together will torque it all down when it clears up. also did what you said and i noticed on the passenger side after adding the pads and caliper it didn't have as much play or lean and after i remounted the wheels no more play or lean. gonna try to knock out the right side|

Be very careful and make sure you use the correct factory specifications when torquing everything back into place.
Brakes are super easy to work on, but they are a critical component and leave very little room for mistakes!

|Red01Focus||open ended and will do, yeah i know i need to have it looked at for the alignment and what not thanks for the heads up|

Do you have open ended lugs or are they closed? I would recommend placing two nuts on the studs with the rotor on and hand tighten them to keep the rotor in place. Its easier to place the calipers and pads when the rotor isn't wiggling.
Also, when the suspension is at full reach, the alignment will be off-camber and the rotor will be at an angle. However, if you get everything put back together and your car pulls to the right like you say, you've got a serious problem and need to have your vehicle aligned and/or inspected by a professional.

|Red01Focus||yeah car is in the air,nothing is bolted back up i wanted to check before i reinstall pads and caliper|

|mac.mogul||Is this while the car is in the air and the suspension is open? Or is the suspension compressed and the rotor is positioned this way?|

|Red01Focus||the rotor if looked at side ways is like this / the top seems to sit ok but the bottom of the rotor sits out more|
