Hey folks! I'm replacing the pads on my 99.5 F-350 CC 7.7 dualie. I found my right rear rotor worn completely out. Since I have never removed a rear rotor before, does anybody have advice or a link to info. on proper procedure?

Yes you do have to take the axle out. Its the smaller 8 bolts on the hub. Slide the axle out, and then you are gonna need a 3 pronged tool from Ford to take the hub bearings out. The you can remove the hub once you have the caliper and the bracket off. Flip the hub upside down and then remove the 15 bolts holding the rotor to the hub. wal lah! done.

Thanks for the heads up on that rear axle! I've just got to find the right socket for that bearing nut.
