    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?

    Maybe it is a socket nut? I'm not sure. I think the Chilton's guide refers to it as a Bearing nut tool. I'll have to doublecheck.
