A repair manual is very helpful koz of torque specs.raise & support truck. remove wheels,remove brake caliper & mounting bracket dont let calipers hang or you will damage flex hose use coat hanger for support. remove bearing cover,cotter pin &nut &outer bearing. lay parts out in order u take em off! if rotors are going to be turned leave inner bearing & seal in place.inspect bearings & spindle for damage, score marks assembly is reverse.when tightening spindle nut til play in bearings is gone. be sure to use hi temp quality wheel bearing grease before reassembly.when play is gone slightly back off nut then snug back up note holes for cotter pin.line up hole to next one closest.DONT BACK NUT OFF! if your gettin new rotors they might come with bearing races already installed. dont forget the seals for inner bearing on rotor. GOOD LUCK!

Remove the wheels, then on the back side of the rotor will be two bolts holding the caliper on. Remove them, then there will be two more bolts holding the caliper mounting bracket on, remove those, and the bracket. The rotors will slide off. If you have never had the brakes done there will be two metal washers holding the rotor on to the studs, cut them off with a chisel. They are only there to hold the rotors on during assembly line operations. Good Luck
