I just bought a Mustang front bearing/hub for my LSC and it has a bunch of dots of anti-seize all over the face of hub where the rotor sits.

Is this something new the manufacturers have started doing?

It is a Timken bearing/hub assembly.

Just curious as I've never seen that before (and I usually put a very very thin layer there myself).

I wish more did that. Some designs of hubs (4x4 Expedition comes to mind) that fit tight in the rotor hub and any amount of rusting (even what we get here in Arizona, which is mild surface rust at best) need to have that. I personally always do the same, but I couldn't talk my father into it, and he is due for new rotors, and he is screwed again.

I have bought a few hubs recently (new ones for my 97 to convert 89 to newer style, 2000 Grand Marquis) and they didn't have it, but it would have been nice.

Both my OEM mustang front hubs and my rear cobra hubs came with the surfaces coated like that
That must be new then because when I bought the Cobra rear hubs (probably 5 - 6 years ago) they were bare.

I hope more manufacturers start doing it. :D
