when the wheel is on, its pushes against it and holds the rotor in place.

depends. if you feel like your ride is ruff and its something to look into. its rather expensive tho. yours is a 97 so i would think that you would get some more life outta the shocks. the rotors do move when the wheel is off. because the caliper does not actually hold it. the pads arent touching the caliper unless the pedal is pressed down.....the rim is placed against it and tightened to its torq specs.so as the rim holds against it you wont have that play in the rotor that you mentioned. as far as the greese holes. i dunno, maybe someone else can tell you.

had you edit. i was too damn drunk to spell right lol
