first you put the car on stands and and then you take the two bolts out in back of the caliper and remove the caliper and then remove the pin in the center of the rotor and the nut and then take the rotor off and do not forget to repack the bearing with grease and then put it back together take one side apart at a time.just in case you need to take a look at how it goes back together

Just the basics, Brake pads range from $25-65 depending on what kind of quality your looking for. If the brakes are grinding, you will need 2 rotors ranging from about $50-70 per wheel. On top of that, after you pull the wheels you will have to determine if the calipers are frozen or hanging up. Calipers on that truck run about $75 apiece. You didn't specify if it had ABS brakes so I based everything on standart disc brakes. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Have you checked your wheel bearings? When these go out you can get a harsh grinding noise. This sounds like that is what it might be. Does it happen when you are going fast/slow turning/going straight? I know you said it's inconsistent but the more info the better. However, if I had to bet, based on what you have already said, it's your wheel bearings. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Check for clearance between the rotor and the caliper,and caliper to the rim.Make sure one ,or more of the brake pads where not accidently put on backwards,with the metal on the rotor,it happens sometimes.

Testimonial: "turned pout to be warped rotors purchased from re so firestone says. replaced rotors. thank you"
I do think the same way. If the pads look flat and not so worn have the rotor turned to eliminate the squeaksyou are encountering
