    Rotor clearance after regreasing rear hub

    My bike has some inexpensive Shimano Deore hubs and I recently replaced all the bearings and the right side cone.

    After doing all that and putting it back on the bike I noticed that the rotor is rubbing inside the caliper on one side. It's pushed over soo much that there is zero adjustability in the caliper. Before reinstalling the caliper the hub spins flawlessly but when the caliper is reinstalled there is a lot of resistance due to the excess rubbing. I'm a little baffled, how do I "kick" the hub's center over in order to properly center the rotor in the caliper. I understand that it's a hub issue and obviously something I did wrong (first time, trying to learn the ins and outs of bike mechanics) but I fail to see my mistake.

    Any suggestions before I pull it back apart?

    Check the spacing assures and if you replaced a cone make sure its the same size as the one that came off. My guess is you accidently put the spacer on the wrong side, happens to the best of us cause u just don't catch it till you put it back on the bike.
