I took the free lock hub off of axle to try and use a rubber malet to get the rotors off so I can have them turned. I havn't had any success yet. Do I need to take off the parts inside the round cover that rotates when I turn rotor? These parts are what is around the axle. There is also a lock ring that doesn't turn that looks like it nedd not come off.
Do you

Why, do they need to be turned down? I think it is stamped right on the rotor somewhere, could be under the rust. Machine shop will tell you right off the bat if shaving them will exceed minimum thickness.

Discard is at.96 " or 24.45 mm.

My opinion is to replace them if it is a matter of doing the brake job. I found advance auto wearever rotors very reasonable in cost and dependable as any other.

I'll second the wearevers, I bought some rotors, guardian I think, they were like 9 dollars apiece, worked excellent. Kind of hard to even find a place toturn rotors, most are throwaways, like brake drums. Talking standard issue parts.
