    you are supposed to swap in the inner bearing cone from the kit?
    its not already in there - the correct one?

    just fitted one of these kits
    70-77 gm rotors
    tp hat spacer and the spacer after the outer bearing

    ONE side is fine
    one side feeel completely wrong
    spindle nut tight - outer bearing jams on spindle
    really loose bearings still

    do i look and see if I have odd outer cups left in the kit?

    Nothing you can do except take the good side apart and have a good look comparing both sides, the spacer is really nothing but a large washer, sure seems like a shipping error , do you have pics?

    yup, it says in the instructions for a kit I installed in the late 80s....Remove the seal, bearing and inner race from the rotor, and install the new bearing and race
