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

Hello...I have a '95 GMC K2500 Suburban with a 5.7L that failed a recent emissions test. I replaced the spark plugs, removed and cleaned the EGR...cap, rotor wires look OK...truck re-tested worst

Retarding the timing will cool the combustion which will lower the Hydrocarbon number,it will run bad but after a passed e test put the timing back to an advanced state which may help with the stumble.

This is a indication that the brake rotors are warped and either need to be machined or replaced.

I replaced my front btake(both) 6 month ago when driving loud noise coming from the fronti can feel the brade pad grinding against the rotor when I turn

If you Failed to Tighten Any 1 of the Caliper Floater BOLTS and it Has Fallen Out This Will Cause the Noise you Discribe. Remove the Wheel from the SIDE YOU SUSPECT the NOISE is Coming From and INSPECT the Caliper and Pads, If the Bolts ARE there and Tight Check the Brake PADS and If they are Worn DOWN to Metal The Problem Is LIKEKY the Caliper Has SIEZED UP and Needs REPLACED along With Brake PADS and ROTOR.

Replace front brakes and rotors

first take off wheels, then check if it is a star screw or a normal bolt, then remove the bottom bolt, remove the top bolt, and take the caliper off to access the pads and to remove the rotors, then back together the way it came apart with some anti seize on the face and bolts. Sometimes you have to pound the old rotors off...

These definitely sound related. Need to inspect to see if it's something loose (like a wheel sensor) or the brake pads need replacing, etc. etc...

I have had a similar problem on my 82 Jimmy when I wanted to replace my 6 lugs (bolts) on the wheel. I guess, you have to remove the hubs to bring out the rotors. I myself searched on the net for a detailed pic, but did not succeed. I however saw my mechanic do it on mine. You need to carefully remove the pins, sleeves, springs etc. in the hub. Some clippings / locks / pins might seem hard to take out, but little inspection would make it easier. Some special tools such as a pointed tip plier might be required to release certain pins.

Anyway, best of luck :-)

By the way, I am having problems with my 4X4 lately. I got the lugs changed and the mechanic seems to have mis installed the hubs. Now I sometimes have a grinding sound underneath, a couple of times (even when 2 wheeling and hubs released), Today the wheels did not lock and I could not get out of sand. To my embarrassment, a land cruiser had to pull me out. Can some one help ?
