    I was getting my new rotors ready for paint and I noticed these two spacer things. The other rotor doesn't have them. Anybody know what they are? Do I remove them?

    ABS reluctor rings are closer to the bearing area and are 'round'...like a smaller rotor inside the rotor area.

    it's amazing...you compare that cheap third world junk with something that comes out of Sweden or Germany...the metal consistency and machining tolerances in the German stuff is so good that they need no balancing.
