Re: Getting slotted disks, do i need new wheel bearings?

greetings Jase
if you are putting new disc's on i would change the wheel bearings at the same time because the outer cones are a press fit into the rotor & it's not worth knocking them out of the old disc's

they are around the $40.00 mark per side

Yeah Jase, as Rod said, you will never get the Cups out.
The bearing are around $50/$60 each, but worth it.
