It's a 89 Chevy G20 Van. My van is shaking violently when I brake at high speeds. I suspected it to be the rotors, so I was attempting to replace the rotors and pads. I've gotten the wheel & caliper off. Can't get the rotor off though. I expected it to be like the only other rotor job i've done where the rotor came right off with some banging. After having no luck I'm wondering if there is some other method to these particular ones.

You have to taek the caliper bracket off first to get the rotor off, then you need to take the cap off the end and take the cotter key out and unloosen the nut and the bearing and rotor should come off. Then you need to take out the inner bearig and seal. You will need to repack the wheel bearings andput a new seal in before you put it together. Make sure the bearings are in good shape after you clean them off.
