E450 same as F450 brakes?

I have a 2004 E450 Super Duty stripped chassis (motorhome) and I want to DIY change front brake rotors and pads. Will I be okay to follow F450 2wd instructions? Also, I'm a bit confussed about which rotors to get... do they have a hub assembly attached? Or should they look like normal "top hat" rotors, with holes for the wheel studs to go through and a small allen head bolt for rotor placement?
Any other advice is appreciated.

Tom

If you are buying front rotors it will include the hub too. You should also get the studs with them. I would get some new wheel bearings and you will need new seals too. Its pretty stright foreward:

Remove the 2 caliper retaining bolts
Support the caliper with a Bungee, or coat hanger, dont let it dangle by the brake hose
Remove the dust cap, cotter pin, retainer, then the nut.
Becareful not to let the outer bearing fall out if you are going to reuse it
Slide the rotor off
Reverse procedure to reinstall

Hope that helps,

Sarge
