    Watching that dude do the inside wheel seal, I could see several steps during the process where it could get afu.

    1) Not cleaning all the old gasket / seal materials off.
    2) He used a sleeve that looks like a mini post hole digger and puts the new one in place with just a few taps using a small sledge. Goes on square and flush.
    3) They have a stand that holds the entire hub assembly, so it goes on square.

    The brakes take only minutes. Brakes for all four drives were like $600.

    Someone started a thread showing his discs after he wore them beyond what I think most of us could fathom, and his was like $5500.

    $5500 vs $600. Let's ponder that for a minute.

    Yeah, and if you're extra luckey they'll get oil all over your brake shoes and make you buy a new set.
    Which, in my case was completely unnecessary because when the rear end locked up from lack of aforementioned oil, (remember it's all over my brake shoes and about a half a gallon is in the pan they drained it in to) the truck stopped just fine. As a matter of fact, it stopped so good that it ruined the tires as well.

    Yes. The inside seal. The metal ring.

    This guy is a good wrench. Very clean. Keeps the whole process clean.

    Here's an easy sign of " What kind of shop is this?"
    The dude has a MONSTER back lit Snap On box. It's totally organized, not one tool out of place.

    This is the guy you want.

    . After more coffee I realize that the question was wrong you have disc brakes which means wheels off and remove caliper to remove hub.
