Removing the front rotors on a 1991 4x4 Burb
I didn't do any prep reading before attempting the job.
I'm used to cars where you pull off the brake caliper and the rotor should just slide off. I guess I was a bit surprised when I got a good look at my Suburban setup. Looking at my Chilton's guide I think I need some sort of hub bearing tool?
Can I get this from the dealership or Schucks? A direct link to it would be great.
To be honest, the rotors look pretty good, but I should probably have them turned anyway? For now, I just installed the new pads to get rid of the wear sensor from squeaking.

I never have rotors turned or replaced unless there is a pulsation in the pedal.
As far as the tool goes, do you mean the socket for the axel nut? Or something else?
