I replace the front rotors on my 99 F150 4X4 the other day. What a pain in the A$$ it was! The truck has 63K on it and both front rotors were frozen on the hubs. It took about an hour and a half to two hours to get each one off. I was spraying it with PB Blaster, applying heat and whacking the rotors with a mallet that weighs 6 pounds. It sucked! I put a set of Power Stop drilled rotors on there that are plated so hopefully I will not have this problem again.

Lets put it this way,

My wife new enough to only peek out the window to see that I was ok and it was to cold for the kids to be out. I would suggest anybody with this style truck to make sure your front rotors aren?t frozen. Maybe I will try the backs this weekend.

I wanted to have the rotors turned on my '01 Expedition, but found they were seized to the hubs also. I was convinced there had to be a pin or clip or something that I was missing. I went down to the auto parts store and had a look at the new rotors to see if I could see a connector of some sort....nope. I finally reverted to the BFH also. Suffice it to say, I bought new rotors. I put anti-seize on the new ones!

Sucks don?t it!

It?s actually the outer edge of the hub that was seized to the rotor. After getting one off I figured I new what to do to get the other off and it would be quicker. I was wrong!

The new rotors I bought were by Autospecialties and are cadmium plated or something but I think I?m going to pull them off and put some anti-seize compound on there also.
