    I have a 1971 K5 with some broken front lug studs (D44). I pulled it apart last night and it looks to me as if the rotor and hub are one piece, am I missing something. They are a little covered in rust and I didn't look really hard. It was when I went to order rotors today that I became concerned they were clear in saying that it was the rotor only, is the hub reusable and I need to put new studs in it? How do I detach the rotor and hub?

    Thanks John

    It may look like that , but the studs for the lug nuts are actually holding the rotor on . You would need to just hammer/press them off and then back on /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Thanks, I will order the rotors and I will find a place to get new studs. I saw the posts on pressing them in and out and that sounds fairly easy once I break free 30+ years of rust.
