getting ready to do front brakes

I know the hub has to come apart to pull the rotors off; does anyone have a good write up including torque specs? Also, what pads are you guys running?

It needs pads on both sides and a rotor on the drivers side. Also, a semi-realted topic. Im going to do rear shoes and drums while im at it. I inspected them but neglected to take a measurement on the paed width. I know they come in 2.5 and 3. How do I know which without tearing back in to it again?

You can put better pads, shoes, drums and rotors on on for the same price or cheaper that OEM. There are some things that I won't use after market parts for but brakes aren't one of them.
