    If you have the calipers off, then the rotors should just slide off. They may be rusted in place, so just kick em a couple times (making sure your vehicle is properly supported beforehand) and they should slide right off the lugs.

    From what I remember on doing my '99. You just have to use a BFH (Big F'n Hammer) and beat them off.

    hehe.... or wait, would a "That's what she said!" be more appropriate for this situation?

    but OP: are you sure your rotors NEED to be replaced? those should last many times longer than the actual pads. I did my brakes about 3xxx miles ago on this truck, and the rotors still had plenty of meat on them. Dunno about the previous owner though.

    LOL. And I'm usually the one to make those jokes.

    It's best to at least turn them each time. Otherwise the new pads will wear quicker.

    Another possible cause of your brakes sticking may be the calipers themselves. They do wear out after a while and will cause that to happen.

    Two other possibilities.

    1) Steel brake line crimped somewhere.
    2) Rubber in flexible brake line by wheels / tires could have started coming apart inside blocking the line.
