    I'm looking at the Power Stop K2023-36 kit.
    For a 2004 GMC Yukon XL 2500 4x4 without Quadrasteer.
    How do I know if I need the 4.63 or 4.83 hub hole diameter?
    Do I just need to pull the wheel and measure it?

    Thanks!

    yes But measure the hub not the wheel as they don’t always have the same measurements

    I was about to say to get a caliper. But there's almost a 1/4" difference in the sizes so you should easily be able to determine which you have. It's always good to have a caliper on hand, anyway. I have a cheap digital one from Harbor Freight that has suited me just fine.

    Thanks guys!

    Would I ever need to use a caliper to measure the calipers?
    Interesting. Same word, different meaning.
    Probably the same Latin root.

    I guess about the only thing you may ever use a measuring caliper on the brake caliper would be to measure the piston and/or bore diameters if you were rebuilding them.

    I see the caliper (measuring tool) having similarities in operation to a brake caliper, so maybe.
