I had my Bronco in the shop and the guy said that my rotors were warped and said I needed to have them replaced. He is telling me because my Bronco is 4 wheel drive, abs, and has auto-locking hubs that all of the brake componets have to be taken off and replaced. Is that true or can I just replace the rotors.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hubed has the bearings and the races for the bearings on the inside of the rotor hub part.

Hubbless the rotor will pop right off when caliper and caliper mount is removed.

Hubbed has a retaining bolt.

All that needs doing is the caliper and pads have to com eoff. Then the autohubs have to come off, then the retainer nut. Thats it.

All that has to be replaced is whats being done in the job.

It doesnt take that much longer then a normal repair, now mmight be a good time to get new bearings and races put in.

This is true for all 4 wheel drive Bronco's 1992-1996. The hub has to be removed to replace the rotor. When the hub is removed the rotor will come off with it. Then you have to drive the lug stud's out with a punch. Use care because you don't want to brake the abs sensor ring. This will look like a ring with teeth on it. In fact if you have a larg puller you would want to pull it off first. If not you can pop it off with the lug's if your carful. Then the rotor can be removed form the back of the hub. It may be loose when you drive out the lug's. If not some rotor's have threaded hole's in them that you can tighten a bolt in to pop the rust loose from the hub. If those aren't there then you have to support the rotor in the air outer face down, and you can take a four by four peice of wood to drive the hub out of the rotor. Take extream care in doing this, and I would only use wood so that you don't damage the hub. Short version yes you have to remove the hub to remove the rotor's. I also agree that you should have the wheel bearing checked while it is appart.
