On an Astro, the front brake rotors ARE the wheel hubs. They are cheap at $30, so every time my Astro needs front brakes, I replace both front rotors. I get grease seals for $1 each and I (replace the front wheel bearings every 80,000 miles) remove the bearings, wash them clean with gas, re-grease them and when you put the rotors back on, tighten the locknut until the wheel will not turn by hand, then back off to the next slot for a cotter pin and put in new cotte pins. I just did new rotors, pads, and cotter pins for about $80 and I am good for another 50,000 miles easy.
