Rotor removal

    It occurred to me (after I'd removed 'em with a big hammer) that you
    might be able to use the car jack to get them off? 

    My rather crude ASCII diagram shows a top view of the disk, with
    the jack braced against (what? the strut? The subframe?). By opening
    the jack you could put gentler pressure on the disk (and your wheel 
    bearings) than you'd get from the traditional hammer treatment.

    Just a thought.

                         \ <-- Jack
          ==============  <-- Disk
