You have to remove the wheel and the brake caliper. If it has antilock brakes disconnect the antilock break sensor wire up by the frame and get the wire free form the holders. Remove the big nut on the end of the axel shaft with a 1-3/8 inch socket, now turn the steering all the way to the left and losen the two bolts behind the hub with good 18MM socket. They are usually very tight be carefull not to round the head of the bolts use a good quality 6 point socket. Turn the bolts out about 6-8 turns and stop now turn the steering all the way to right do the same with the other two bolts. Now, take a air hammer with a punch end in it and hammer on the heads of the bolts, a little at time, on all the bolts, evenly until the hub is loose. If you don't have a air hammer a hammer and punch or drift will work. Then remove the bolts the rest of the way and pull the assembly off. Now you have to drive the wheel studs out and remove the rotor. I just described it on 3/4 ton a 1/2 ton might be easier but the principle is the same, I think there are only 3 bolts holding the hub on and the bolt sizes may differ. Also I think you can pull the rotor right off once caliper is out of the way. Sorry about that.
jack up the rear of the car remove wheels and tires, remove the two caliper bolts, remove old brake pads, using a c clamp push each piston the the caliper bake in install new pads, reinstall caliper install wheels and tires lower the jack and your done
caliper bolts are torque head bolts be sure to have the proper size before trying to change the brakes
You will find the clip for the front brake hose inside the frame. Remove it and pull the hose out to remove it from the steel brake line. The other end will have 2 gaskets at the caliper end....one above and below the hose connection. Once the new hose has been installed.....open the bleeder on the caliper and remove all air as fluid flows into the new parts. Only new fresh brake fluid should be added to the master cylinder to replace lost fluid. Do not expose brake fluid to air for long periods.....it will absorb moisture. You may have to bleed the other front caliper to restore a firm brake pedal. After your repair hold the brake pedal down for a few minutes...it should not drop down.....and also inspect for leaks before moving the vehicle.
