I am planning to replace my front axle kingpin bearings.
A couple of HOW TO DO ITs gives very good descriptions.

The procedures given of replacing the kingpins do not require the dismantling the wheel hub assembly. That means the Suzuki approved wheel bearing tool isn't required to release the bearings.

By removing the 4 bolts holding the wheel hub assembly to the swivel housing allows the hub to be released all together.

However, some Jimnys have ABS braking and sensor rotors fitted to the back of the wheel hubs.
My question is, is the ABS rotor interfering with access to the 4 bolts and therefore will I have to dismantle the bearing hub assembly first before I can get to these 4 bolts?

thanks in advance for any help given on this issue
