Question about 1981 Ford F 100
Wondering if anyone knows the best way to change the front rotors on a 78 F 100?
Jack the front up. Place jack stands under the axle so it wont fall on you. Remove the front wheels. Remove the brake calipers. Your vehicle will have two long bowed pieces that you knock out of a track to remove the calipersTwo on each side. Then remove the dust cover over the hub. Remove the kotter key and back the nut off and remove it. Gently pull on the rotor and remove it. After removal place it on some wood block with the face up. Place the lug nuts back onto the lugs to protect the threads. Use a heavy brass hammer to pound the lugs back through the rotpr one at a time until they are all removed. Remove the nuts from the lugs and push the lugs out completly and the rotor will lift off. Reverse the procedure to replace the rotor. While the hubs are off you may as well replace the wheel seals and grease the wheel bearings as you may have damaged the seals during removal. These steps should get the job done. If you need further clarification please feel free to ask. I'm more than glad to help direct or answer your questions. Let me know how it goes for you.
