This is a redo. Found another lug nut and took off one of the spacers

Ok... if you don't have a depth gauge do this..
Flip the rotor around. So you can see the axle flange and also see the rotor. (Lug nuts on the inside of the rotor.
So the outside rotor hat is against the axle flange.
It gets the braking surface away from the flange and then turn it again.

Are y’all thinking it’s a bad rotor?
y’all know what ? I need to make sure the little flange inside the rotor is not riding up on the axle flange.

You got it right there 👍👍👍👍
Thats why I had you reverse the rotor to eliminate or confirm what the rotor is doing.
Just making sure what I got right. ?
so do ya think it’s not sitting flush inside the rotor ? Maybe part of the axle flange is up on the small lip inside the rotor?

There no way of knowing what’s not under or over sized.
is it the rotor or the axle flange.
You could use a tape measure if you don't have dial calipers. Measure out side the axke flange
Then measure the lip inside the rotor.

A tape will get you close...you should know right away. A caliper you can be exact. I'm not thinking this is only off by a few thousands. Maybe more like an 1/8th of an inch. Let me know
