Very cool. I will be going this direction if I have to replace anymore. Well that is if the bearing hasnt been released on the OEM.

of course. I threw in the 4x2 to be specific, I was mainly trying to verify the years applicable.

Wish I found that a month ago when I changed my rotors for the second time due to a failed bearing

Talking Not dreaming after all...

Okay, did some research and thought I'd share.

For my 2004 F150 2WD, a basic 2-piece replacement kit for the hub/rotor assembly (not cross-drilled, slotted, or anything else too fancy) is made by Centric Auto Parts. The part number is 120.65128 which is for both the hub bearing, rotor, and locking spindle nut. From what I've read, once this replacement is installed, on future rotor replacements you can just order the F150 4WD front rotors which will fit your new hub.

Found a couple of good places for pricing. The price below is for each rotor:
Woody's Auto Supply - $130 + $13 S&H
Amazon (quickshipautoparts) - $140 + $7 S&H
Tire Rack - $137 + $17 S&H

Centric also produces the Power Slot brand rotors which are slotted (126.65128) and Stop Tech which are slotted and drilled (127.65128) for those who race or prefer the racing look. Didn't look into pricing on these.

Hopefully this will help someone who is wanting to retrofit the OEM rotor/hub assembly into the split hub/rotor design similar to the 4WD and most other vehicles out there. I'll repost after I order and install to let everyone know how it goes.

So will that also work for 05-08 2wd f150's? Definitely something I'd like to know.

Rotors/Hubs

Looks like the vendor even has a kit for 7 lug trucks! This is one I'm going to have to remember when the time comes.

So the new parts came in and i am very happy with them. They seem to be very good quality. Mine came with the black e-coating on the vented edge and also on the center part of the rotor. New locking spindle nuts were also included.

The install was quite easy. Basic steps were...
1. Remove lug nuts & wheel (6 lugs)
2. Remove calipers and remove old pads (2 bolts)
3. Remove caliper bracket and hang w/wire (2 bolts)
4. Remove spindle nut cotter-pin and cover
5. Remove spindle nut with long breaker bar
6. Remove rotor w/ bearing assembly (search for removal trick on YouTube if needed)
7. Clean area & remove any loose rust
8. Install new bearing assembly
9. Install new spindle nut and torque the crap out of it (almost 300 ft-lbs)
10. Install new rotor
11. Install new pads
12. Re-install caliper assembly
13. Re-install wheel

Haven't test driven it yet. I ordered the wrong rotors for the rear and had to send them back, so it will be another week or so before I get to it.

That's it; next time I'll only have to replace the rotors with the 4WD version.
