    Question Rotor change on a K-5

    Anyone have any idea how hard it is to change rotors on a 1985 K5 Blazer Silverado 4X4?

    YOU HAVE TO PULL THE HUB APART
    THEY MAKE A TOOL TO TAKE THE SPINDLE NUT
    OFF ITS NOT A NORMAL SOCKET THEN REGREASE
    EVERYTHING AND INSTALL NEW SEALS AND THE
    O-RING ON THE ON THE LOCKING HUB

    thanks brokkanic for making a post here. any estimated time on completion for someone who's never changed rotors before? and what's this special tool for the spindle nut?? if rotors can be taken off of a '94 2wd truck(brothers truck) with my tools, would that be sufficient to do it on my 85 4x4?? if so then im not going to worry about it.

    shouldn't take any longer than normal there are just a few mor peices just take your time and dont break anything, you will need a small alen wrench to get the hub loose but every thing else should be the same , i thing the socket is called a spanner nut socket? not to sure just tell the parts store what your taking apart they will know what size the socket is.

    well, about 20 minutes ago i took off my tires and inspected everything. both rotors are developing grooves, and im positive they are warped because they are hard to turn in spots. so i'll be getting new front rotors and pads for this beast.

    this is a weekend project. i haven't started yet. i just yanked the tires off to look at it. i put them back on of course because this is my daily driver. ill probably start friday or saturday.

    i do have pics of my blazer, but i dont have them uploaded anywhere. i have stock 31x10.15 all terrain futura tires. your other toy is quite massive. what size engine is in it?
