    It is time to replace the rotors on my truck...oh joy.

    Is the rotor/hub assembly one piece or are they separate pieces? Mine look like they are one piece units and I want to make one trip to NAPA.

    They come apart, the wheel studs hold them together. They can be purchased either as a disc only or as a whole assembly.

    what bigjbear said, 2 pieces, so you should only need the rotor unless your hub is shot to hell...

    Thanks, guys...

    I was hoping that they were independent pieces, as I just replaced bearings and races. I guess I wasn't paying real close attention when they were off the truck. Learn something new everyday. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
