    :eek:uch: hey guys okay soo im posting this here as well as the C/K truck forum bcuz we technically have the same setups. Alright my truck is a 1992 K2500 suburban eight lug. full floating rear. Discs up front drums in the back la di da da da . . . i went to put new rotors on at my school (UTI) and CANNOT seem to seperate the rotor from the hub assembly or knuckle . All data says to use a puller to pull the rotor off of the assembly. we did that. the axle just pushed in and the rotor did not move next we tried a slide hammer puller that did not work either. we soaked it in pb blaster to try and loosen up some of the rust but no help... Are there any secrets or anything at all you guys could suggest to get this d*mn rotor off im losing my mind thanks in advance for all the help you guys are great here.
    p*ssed of Gerry :grrrrrr:


    ** sorry if my terminology is off on the parts or w.e. hopefully you guys understand wat im trying to say. thanks

    trick i learned was before you take the caliper off hit the rotor with a hammer and that seems to help Mainly on fords but may work for you, i would just beat it off with a hammer if your going to replace it you can try to heat the rotors mounting face to help break it loose

    Since you have a 4WD (I'm assuming since you said it was a K and mentioned about an axle) the rotor is just placed on the hub and should come off after you've removed the caliper........ If it's rusted in place just beat it with a hammer to break the rust loose........ No need to touch the axle/axle nut.....
