    It was caliper interference. Shimmed it, still won't torque to spec, but way better and no binding. I think I'll just loctite-green it and say fk-it.

    sounds like either the hub or the caliper is tweaked. When bolting it down I would bet its making the rotor tweaked up against the pads. Try shimming the caliper and see if that clears it up.

    Naseig kit, front hub wont turn

    I can't figure out what the hell is going on here. Naseig kit, E36 M3 rotors and calipers. Untorqued, with no rotor on, the hub spins just fine. Put the rotor and caliper on, it will barely turn by hand. Put any torque to the wheel nut and it locks solid. Tore the whole damn thing apart 2x, bearing is fine, a little play, but just the plastic retainer moving around. WTF is going on here. Left side is all torqued down and fine. Right is being retarded. I'm starting to regret not just putting a full E36 front end on rather than this janky business.
