Once you have the wheel and caliper off the rotor should slide right off. you may have to tap it with a hammer to loosen the rust

SOURCE: cant get seized rotor off 01' durango.? tried a hammer.? any ideas.?

You can try liquid wrench or PB Blaster sprayed on the hub and a bigger hammer. It will just take brute force to get it off. For future endeavors, put anti-seize compound on the hub before installing the rotors.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge durango 2wd. brakes

New brakes and rotors need time to properly bed in. During the bedding in period brake squeal is normal.
Have you bedded in the brakes properly? if so use some brake squeal goo on the back of the brake pads which are touched by the pistons.
Brake squeal is can be caused by a number of things, most commonly is the lack of shims which cause the pads to vibrate within their holders which then cause them to squeal.
It could also be due to improper bed in. If this is the case the pads/rotors may be glazed due to overheating aka cooking the brake pads. What happens is all the material on the brake pads melt and form a glass like surface on the brake pad which then reduces brake force and causes the brakes to squeal once the brakes are warm.
If you are mechanically minded you can use 120grit sandpaper to gently sand the brake pads (EVENLY) to remove the glaze and gently give the rotors a once over. After which you have to do the bed in procedure. Maybe twice to get enough pad material to transfer onto the disk.

otherwise as hemidart stated, some cheap inferior brake pads are made with materials that just cause squealing. only fix for this is to get good brake pads.

no point scrimping on brakes as they last a long time anyway.

I have 2002 Durango with 360CID engine. #8 cylinder does not fire.

Had a similar problem years ago. Since everything is electronic very hard to do self diagnostic. Make sure the boot is completely into the "Rotor" cap. Are these original wires? Not sure if some still use graphite or all copper these days. Worst case is carbon build up on # 8 piston. compression test is 1st thing. Was plug anode clean or pitted? May not be a whole bunch of help but ck these things out 1st. Best advise is think simple before you freak out.

Not if they have been replaced.I would check for slack in the idler arm and the pitman arm.Also if this wobble happens only when you push on the brakes then its the brakes rotors out of round have them refaced or replaced with new ones.

You can switch brake pad manufactures. It sounds to me that the truck has lifetime pads on it. Hence the need to change rotors every year. Swap the good pads for the basic and youll solve this problem. Good luck. :)

I need to know what tools I'll need to change the front rotors on my 02 dodge durango

you will need the basic hand tools to do a brake job, and a big hammer to break the rotors free from the axel, they should just fall off but sometimes need some hammering to break the rust free
