86 Laredo

I hope somebody can help. I have an 86 laredo with a 30 front end . I am trying to get new rotors for it & twice auto parts stores are giving me the wrong ones. Problem is rotors will not fit over the hub, the hole in the center is too small. My hub measures 4.187 that would be the center front hole & the back hole that has to set flush so I can bolt rotor to spindle measures 7.250. but both times the rotor diameters are to small to fit. Anybody know what the heack is going on ......HELP !!!!!

The Auto Parts Guys are dumb...they probably gave you a rotor for a YJ (late 86 and up) or something. Ask for a rotor for a 1985 instead, they are the same from 1981 to 1986 so it wont matter. If that doesnt work, try a new auto parts store with a clue.

Have you taken the old rotors off? The rotors mount to the back side of the hub. Wheel studs go through back of rotor and through hub. See pic:

Thanks turtle
I took those apart two years ago. I am doing a frame off resto and just getting the frame up to a rolling chassie. All tha brake jobs I have done over the years have all been hub outside of spindle, never have I seen this set-up. Just shows you are never to old to learn new things.
Now that I'm done beating my head against the wall I can get back to work.
Thanks a Million
