Are these calipers finished?

Hey I was just wondering if these calipers are finished?
Also what is the metal protector piece the protects the rotor from road debris called?
I'm probably replacing bearings too. Are the napa brand ones good enough? What are the races and do they come with napa bearings?
Anything else I might need besides the rotors,pads,bearings, splash protector and maybe calipers?

You'll need new rotors new or rebuild kits for the calipers. Check the bearings replace if needed.

Yea I'd say they are finished I wouldn't run them again, rust crusty but more than that look at those pistons.

Boots failed had been left exposed, reusing those would lead to nothing but trouble/problems. Hang up over heat toasting the new rotors.

Might be tempted to save few bucks reuse the caliper on the other side, say it didn't suffer same fate boots are in good shape, for best bet/results nice even braking doesn't pull to one side or the other replace calipers in pairs. Don't always have to and its a judement call, odds the mate to that one is in good shape and equal to a new one gotta be slim.

Ya I guess I'll just get new calipers too. I'm betting the other side isn't much better either.
Do you guys know what that protector piece is called in the first pic. Mine is rusted through and it seems to have let debris in and caused the backside of the rotor to rust through.

I run without them, my plow truck hasn't had those dust shields on it for several years now, no ill effects.

I replaced them once from ford and to the tune of around 150 bucks each, however IIRC they are now obsolete.

You can order them here, have no idea if they actually have them or not though.

The dust shells will help keep rocks out of your rotors if your going to be out wheeling it a lot.

What size is the Allen key needed for the hubs? None of the ones I have work. And what size socket will I need for the nut after the hub comes off?

1/8 doesn't work and neither does 5/32. What would be in between those? Slightly smaller then a 4. Maybe I need a 3.5?

I just ended up using a T25 torx bit to get the Allen heads out.
I don't know where to go from here though. Am I going to need 1 or 2 special lock nut sockets?
If so which ones? Thanks

Looks to me that you have already removed the axle snap ring. Push in on the part the allen head bolts thread into. There is a snap ring (big "c" shaped piece of wire) between it and the hub. Hard to see, but it is there. The manual locking hub assembly should then slide out, exposing the spindle nuts. Good Luck.
