out by the hub or behind the rotor? I'm wondering about the one out by the hub....the clean brand new lookin' sheet metal thing. lol. My first thought was it's part of a bearing packer tool. But...I don't know those gen3's well enough to know! lol.

I only questioned it because you never know with downey. Could be pullin' a downey moment on us again...


Anyway...I havn't a clue and I'm really curious too. My only guess is some sort of protector of the rotor from getting grease on it while installing hubs. Or it is a dust shield...those wheels are pretty flat so it's possible those'll fit inside the rim. But that's all my guesses. I'll wait for an answer later. lol.

Better shot...the one that shoulda been quoted...
