changing brakes on a 2wd

well my truck is due for pads and rotors, i checked some prices and my front rotors are over $100 a piece!.. i didnt realize it but the 4wd have the pop off rotors and the 2wd have the 1 piece rotors with the bearing in them.. so here is what im gonna do, im going to get new pads and just have the rotors turned so save some cash.. but the only problem is i have never done rotors like these. what do i do, i take the dust cap off, take the nut off, then the whole thing comes off? then after i get them turned, what do i have to do to grease the bearing and put it back in? how much do i tighten the nut? any help is greatly appriciated.. thanks!

Take the cap off remove the cotter pin nut washer then with your hand ready to catch the outer bearing pull the rotor out slowly once the rotor is off remove the inner bearing by taking out the oil seal the buy a pair of oil seals and some good grease pack the bearings with fresh grease put the inner back in the rotor install the new oil seal and put the rotor back on install the outer bearing washer and nut i dont know what the exact tourqe value (maybe around 25 ft/lbs or so) is for the nut usually i tighten the nut while i spin the rotor by hand just a little past snug but not real tite u dont want any wiggle or drag in the bearing hope this helps

Are you sure they can even be turned? They may be out of spec.
