2006 F250 SD 4X4 front brake rotor removal

So I'm a guy who doesn't like surprises when taking on a task. I ordered some new Motorcraft front brake rotors for my SD. I was getting a some shaking when braking, had the brakes inspected and they said I needed new rotors. Old ones could not be turned.

So I'm gonna do this job myself and wanted to know if there was anything I should be aware of, tools I need, time saving tips, etc. ANYTHING at all!

Remove the wheel, unbolt the caliper and hang it by wire and not the hose, Remove the caliper holder and you are there, very simple. Need 13mm, 19mm sockets.

I own a Automotive shop in Texas. Since it is a 4X4 the rotors are just slip offs. It's real easy. If your not changing out the pads all you need is a 21mm to pull the bracket off holding the caliper and pads. Just take it all off as one, unless you are changing pads too. You may have to give it a tap with a hammer, but it pops off the hub bearing. The main thing you want to watch out for is that the boxes your new rotors in look perfect. If not I would let a GOOD shop in your area turn them before you install them. I have had new rotors warped worse than the old ones from part's guys dropping them, or getting dropped during shipping.

Well guys that sounds suspiciously easy. The boxes are in perfect condition and I have the suggested socket so I think I'm gonna take a crack at it tomorrow. Thanks for the input.

Very true... I have had many new rotors in the box come warped. I always have my new rotors turned down before I install them. Its not all new rotors but you would be very surprised at how many new rotors come this way.

A big heavy hammer is good for when it's rusted on.

i have a 2006 f250 4x4 and was in the process of replacing pads and rotors up front due to warped rotors
i removed the caliper and mounting bracket and i thought the rotor was just rusted tight, but after beating on it with a wood block and a hammer it wouldnt budge
i thought it just slipped on over the 4x4 hub, but maybe i'm wrong...?
any suggestions or get a bigger hammer?
thanks!

Bigger hammer! I smacked the rotor directly (it's getting replaced, why not?) while spinning the rotor. It will pop off.
