    It's usually the axle shaft flange that is bent. Pointer with & feeler gauge will give you a dirty measurement.

    You want to check the axle shaft flange as corrosion between the flange and brake rotor can add lateral run-out.

    Similar to the hanger test i guess... Can you actually use a rotor to measure a bent flange?
    Where would you measure from?
