    I wanted to take the rotors off my 2007 reg cab 2wd. I've done rotors in the past on other cars and trucks and they just come right off. It looks like these need some kind of puller. Is this correct?

    Thanks, Dave

    Um well take the wheel off. Then remove the calipers, I think there is two bolts on the inside of the setup. Remove the bolts and the caliper should come off (might need to remove the brake line). Then you are fully exposed to the rotor and it should come right off.

    What are you needing to take them off for?

    Yes the wheels are off as well as the caliper. Wanted to get them turned. Feel a little vibration.

    Take a pice of steel and place it in between the studs. Then smack that pice of steel with a small 3# sledge. You just need to hit it just enough to make it vibrate. Do it several times in between all of the studs.

    When you do finally get them off, theyre may be a bit of corrosion on hub and around studs. Wirebrush, clean the crap out of this area before reassy.
