Front Rotors

Are there any special tools needed to take front rotors off to have them resurfaced? I know what a pain in the butt the Ford Explorer was with automatic hubs.

I had the same issue just after I bought my XK, warped rotors, but I ended up taking to the dealer and having them deal with it. $280 for all 4 to be machined and refitted.

EZ,

Remove wheel, lift off and support caliper, slide rotor off hub.
Hub stays on vehicle.
Your Exploder had to have the rotor and hub removed as an assembly, and yep, it is a pita.

Thanks Rob. My dad and I are gonna take them off and have the cut, but I couldn't remember when the last time I rotated the tires if the rotor was part of the whole hub assembly or not. The reason I asked if it was any special tools because we're gonna do the job at my house and my dad has more tools at his. So I thought if there was any special tools needed I could tell him to bring them if he had 'em or I'd go buy them. Anyway thanks again!

Don't be surprised if you can't have them turned.... The OEM's are cheap crap.

Looks like O'Reilly carries Wagner rotors for $90 each and the ceramic pads are around $60 for the fronts. I think that is the route I am going to go as my brakes on my 06 with 32k miles are starting to shake coming into stops.

Mitch when get Wagner brakes, gives us some feedback. I am at 45,000 and starting to feel shaking as well. I would like Mopar brakes, but a little to pricey.

Do the rear rotors just pull off, I tried and there seems to be some kind of keeper .... there is a rubber gasket around the hub shaft as well, maybe just not pulling hard enough?
