rotor shield?

will it hurt anything if I remove the guard that surrounds the rotor, I put it a tj unit bearing and i believe its the rotor rubbing. i even spaced the rotor with some washers and it still didnt help.

I don't have the details handy but there are certain years and or versions that have rotors with a different offset. So, maybe you don't have a matched set.

We did an axle swap on a friends tj a few weeks ago and put on the newest rotors we had but they dragged horribly until we compared the two sets and swapped.

As for the shield, I left mine out but plan on putting them back next time I have it apart. Mr Blaine tells me that that are thick enough to effect the caliper spacing.

I know this is a necro but I just finished my CAD delete and TJ axle swap yesterday and my rotors rub the knuckles now

I didn't put my dust sheilds back in either, I had to put an 1/8 thick washer behind the rotors to keep them from rubbing.

Anyone know what year wrangler would have the rotors that may help this?

I may have to order some small spacers because I damn sure am not taking those hubs apart again.

Nevermind I think I found my answer here

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.
If it's supposed to move and doesn't use WD40
