Question about 1983 Dodge Pickup

How do you remove the rotors

I bot a 90 ramcharger 4x4 for a winter vehicle. The rotors are warped pretty badly. How do you remove them. I took off the snap ring and nut but can't get them to budge. Bot a repair manual but it doesn't show me the removal for the type of 4 wheel drive system i have. I don't have the turn out hubs. The 4 wheel drive engages with the floor shifter, so i assume it isn't automatic 4 wheel drive. Figured that this would be an easy job. I'm not too cheap to take it to get fixed, i just have to watch my $$$ because they closed down the dodge dealership that i sold at and am now unemployed. Also lost my mechanic buddy that gave me advise.

Bouncing and front end vibration

warped rotors replace and then fix shocks since its what caused it in the first place also check ball joints and tie rod ends. see a typical vehicle use 70 % front brake and 30 % rear brake and when the shocks are bad a vehicle will use 80 to 90 % front brake which will cause the rotors to heat up over 400 degrees and then rapidly cooling causing them warp

I have a 2000 f150 5 speed 4x4 and can not keep rotors true

If your problem is in the front set you may have bad hubs. Once you bolt the rotor to the hub the rotor will follow the hub. If the hub has a bad bearing the hub will pitch the rotor and the rotor will hit the same high spot no matter how many rotors you install.

This is hard to catch because it takes the weight of the vehicle to bear down on the hub bearing. You may notice uneven tire wear.

There were some problems with water warping the rotors after your hot rotors were bathed in water before parking. And sticking calipers can overheat the rotors.

Check your hubs and if they are okay you could try some vented rotors with holes drilled in them for cooling.

Remove front rotor on 91 f250 4x4 manual lock out

I must be missing something. It should be fairly straightforward. It is pretty much just unpinning the brake caliper and hanging it so that it's weight is supported and removing the brake rotor. Put down the Chilton manual that you are using and go to the website and register the truck. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual. The steps for changing the brake rotors can be found there. There are pics and diagrams and the steps for removing the caliper/pads and brake rotor can be found there. (unless I am missing something) Hope this helped and best wishes.

ABS causing vibration in o4 f-150??

Since the rotor isn't warped. Do you have grooves in the rotor? Are the pads evenly worn? You a bad front 4X4 C/V shaft will also cause this reaction.
I would just unplug the ABS fuse and it will bypass the system to regular old-fashioned brakes.

My front rotors are warped. How do I replace them?

Rotors are pretty simple, you just need to remove the two caliper mounting brackets, this can be done by removing the 2 bolts located behind the rotor, simply remove the 2 bolts from each side and the rotor will slide right off of the studs.

2005 ford expedition faulty breaks

Try buying top quality rotors, Raybestas, Wagner, or Bendix. Do not buy second line rotors. Buy the top line, OE quality pads. Make sure that when the rotors are installed that you clean out behind where the rotor mounts and the studs. All rust, dirt and debris needs to be removed. When you mount the wheels back on the vehicle, they need to be torched back to ford specifications, follow the specs to the letter. These trucks are VERY picky when it comes to brakes and skipping just one of the steps above will lead to trouble.

Rotor's warped

Rotors are a part of the disc brake braking system, and they warp due to a number of things. And the amount they warp ranges from very little, to quite a bit, so much so that you can feel the warpage in the brake pedal when you stop.

They can cost from $20.00 to $150.00 per rotor, depending on the vehicle. They can be turned at the auto repair shop for about $10.00 per rotor. There is 1 rotor per wheel. Turning them gives you a new rotor for all intents and purposes, but once turned, depending on how much was turned off, they cannot be turned again. So a badly warped rotor might can be turned, or might be too warped to be turned. A slightly warped rotor might can be turned again.
