id heat up the rotor around the hub with a torch (dont go too crazy- dont want to cook the unit bearings) as that is prolly where it has some corrosion and is getting hung up on- heat it, hose it down with lube, and wack it with something around the outside to loosen it up should slip right off

Isnt this the design were the rotor is behind the face of the hub?

If it is then u need to remove the unit bearing and press the studs out to remove the rotor

To get the hub out use a socket and extensions on the hub bolts, and beat on that, to avoid damaging the bearings and rotors.

no room for a air hammer unless you take the hole knuckle apart

mikey on my 99 the bearing is pressed into the hub. you will need to beat the studs out of it to get the rotor off.

dude its just like the other guy said stick the socket on an extension then thread the 2 bolts into the bearing opposite of each other from the back and put the socket on the bolt and the extension against the housing or control arm then start the truck and use the power steering to press the bearing out and work a little at a time so it doesnt get cocked in there but it dont matter because i dont think those rotors can be turned off the truck... they either need to be turned on the truck or replaced

and once you get the hub off you gotta pound all 8 wheel studs out and then the rotor will come off the back of the hub
