I have a 2004 Landcruiser 4.7Liter V8 with 56K miles. I'm getting pedal pulsations when brakes are applied. It can also be felt in the steering wheel. The front brake pads are not quite worn out, but I'm replacing with new. I want to machine the rotors to re-true and eliminate pulsations. I have removed calipers, and the six nuts on rotor (black area near the lug nuts). Also removed axel dust cap, and removed a keeper clip. I can push in on the spline drive axel, and it moves inward, but the rotor itself doesn't loosen. What is the procedure to remove the rotor? It looks like the black section with the six nuts needs to come off, but tapping with a hammer and screwdriver doesn't budge it. Is there a special puller required?
