Question about 1991 GMC K2500
I have a 95 GMC Suburban K2500 4x4 8600 GVW that I need to replace the front brake rotors on. I took the wheels and calipers off and I couldn't remove the brake rotors. Someone mentioned to me that this model had the rotors "pressed" onto the hub assy. and that I would need a shop to press them off and the new ones pressed on. Is that true? Or would it be more likely that they are rusted onto the hub assy. and just need some persuasion to remove them. Thanks for your help.
On the heavy-duty models like this one (and mine) the rotors are indeed pressed on. The whole assembly comes off via four bolts on the inside of the assembly. Look in a Chilton's or Hayne's at your local auto parts store to see it with pictures.
Do not just hammer away as the previous ignoramus suggested. They'll never come off and you'll just end up breaking something.

What you do is put the lugnuts on the bolt but not against the rotor leave a space so when you hit the nut the stud will come loose and the rotor comes apart. I just finished my gmc 2500 and I didn't go to any machine shop and there were no bolts on the inside???

Spray them with penatrant and smack the inside between the studs with a hammer they will brake loose
