Hi again, Joel.
Apart from being told that you should replace the rotors, what is wrong with them? do you have brake shudder, or are the rotors too thin, i.e. beyond their wear limit?
If there are no symptoms of rotor problems I would clean the old ones and reuse them. Maybe new brake pads. As the hubs have come off you have disturbed the bearings, so clean them thoroughly, pack them with a bearing grease and reinstall them.
Prob a dumb question but can you raise the height of standard GXL 2023 suspension just temp and only slightly to stop front tyre rub on inside of arb summit guard until I can get a proper lift in a few weeks
I purchased a lovely Hiace Commuter recently and was advised to replace the Rotors. So I Bought some rotors from supercheap, and removed the old ones from the vehicle.
I'm a little startled though, as the old ones seem to be one-piece. Am I dealing with a rotor that has a built-in rotor hat or hub assembly? I've attached 2x images, the old with the yellow highliting that it seems to be one piece and the new on the plastic. There is no seam on the old. I've looked at the workshop manual, and tons of videos but the one-piece doesn't seem to be standard.

Hope the road trip ahead is wonderful my friend, enjoy the open road and scenery around you in your travels.
I am glad your trying the Armor all Ultra Ceramic Glass product I love it so easy to use and the end results are great and will reaaply mine this weekend after "Faye" gets her wash and dry. I am trying out the TW Graphene Tyre shine right now and am keen to apply it this weekend as all the videos I have seen look great. Let us know how you find the Ceramic Spray for durability, I am still using the TW Graphene Flex Wax and am super happy with it.

Hugggss to you and yours
I have recently purchased a 2023 Fortuner and I’m looking for a workshop manual. I have looked in the usual places on the net but can only find much earlier model manuals or the very expensive Toyota subscription. I will be spending a lot of time in the back blocks so need a manual just in case. Can anyone suggest a solution.
Getting ready for another road trip, so last weekend, the car got a wash and the bat/bird flyover presents removed.
I kept it quick and simple using Armor All Super Heavy Duty Wash. Afterwards, I did a quick drive around the block to blow off any excess water then a wipe down with a large microfibre cloth.
For the windscreens and side glass, used Armor All Ultra Ceramic Glass Treatment & Cleaner.
For the paintwork, used Armor All Ultra Ceramic Spray Coating.
For the tyres which will be replaced after this road trip, I will most likely use Aerospace 303 Protectorant.
