Front brake rotor replacement on my '91 F-350?

I desperately need to replace the rotors on my 1991 F-350. It's 4WD with manual locking hubs and I for the life of me can't get them off. I need a walkthrough of how to replace my rotors because I bought a repair manual and it was of no help to me. Please help. Thank you!

Yeah it's a bit of a job. You need a special bearing socket because the hub and rotor are pressed together with the wheel studs through them and come off as a unit.

Remove the screws on your hub, remove cap. Pull out the ring holding the hub body in and slide out the hub. Remove the washers behind it using a zip tie to keep them in order. Remove the two big bolts holding the caliper on and hang it out of the way. Remove the big nut with a wheel socket for your truck, you can get it at any auto parts store, just tell them what you got. The hub will now slide off, be careful and catch the bearings if they fall out. Have the rotor turned, repack the bearings, clean/relube the spindle and slide it all back on. Retorque it per the manufacturer specs (I can't remember off the top of my head but it's in the Haynes manual). Clean out the old grease from the hub and hub body and lightly grease everything again. Slide the washers back on and the cam gears then slide the hub back in. Put cap and screws back on hub body. Spread the caliper out before you remove the old pads and then remove the old pads, and remove the old clips. Clean all the gunk and grease off the calipers especially where the pads slide back and forth. Install new clips and lightly grease contact areas for the pad. Install new pads after lightly greasing the ends of them where they contact the clips. Reinstall caliper and replace bolts in it. Ensure wheel spins freely. Done and done. Remember to pump your brakes before you take off down the road.
