Front wheel bearing/hub issue

I have a 99 Integra GS-R that I have been building. Planning on starting a build thread here but figured I'd post this first. So I recently took the entire front knuckle assemblies to a local shop to have some new wheel bearings, extended studs and lower ball joints pressed in. When I was re-installing the rotors I noticed a couple issues. Kind of hard to explain so I have attached a link to a YouTube video of my car and the issue.



You can see how much the rotor moves while spinning and sometimes even grinds against the caliper bracket. Never seen anything like this but I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to look like that. :tomato: Before taking the video I made sure everything was tight and had no wobble or play at all. The EBC rotor is also brand new out of the box and is perfectly straight with no warping at all so pretty certain the rotor is not the issue. I'm thinking that when the shop pressed in the new wheel bearing and re-installed the hub they failed to install it straight which is causing the movement when the hub spins. I'm not sure if that's even possible or if it could be something else. Also wondering what the fix for this would be or if the whole thing just needs to be redone correctly.

The other side might have the same issue but I wasn't even able to get the rotor on the hub because the studs are installed crooked and won't line up with the holes in the rotor.. :whyme:

I will be taking both knuckles back to the shop that did the work but I wanted to get an idea if what I'm thinking is right before I go in there and blame them for something that may not be their fault.

TL;DR watch the video and give me your opinion on what's wrong.

If the bearing is brand new, see if you get this movement

This was my car, brand new Koyo bearing *BUT* the knuckle itself was bent (thanks to a spin out on track). So something to look for

The wheel bearings are brand new Timkens and they do not have that movement.

Where was your knuckle bent at? Did that cause the movements you demonstrated in your video?

The video is with a brand new Koyo pressed in

I can't tell you exactly where the knuckle was bent, all I needed to know and all I can tell you that once it happens, it doesn't matter where, the assembly is f*cked

Thanks for this. I'll perform this test, before replacing my wheel hubs due to this issue.
