Replacing a rotor on a 4×4 Dodge is something you can do when you change the brake pads. Reasons why you would need to change the rotors include warping, grooves from bad brake pads, cracking, or they may just be too thin. It does not take long to replace the rotors. You can expect each wheel to take about 30 minutes to complete, and you can do the job in your driveway.
Park the Dodge on a level surface, and turn the key off. Place a set of wheel chocks behind the rear wheels. Raise the truck with the automobile jack. Place a jack stand under it near the jacking point, and raise it to the frame. Remove the lug nuts with the lug wrench, and take the wheel off the truck.
Loosen the caliper bolts with the socket and ratchet. Pull the caliper from the mounting bracket. Secure the caliper to the strut using a wire tie. Remove the retaining clips from the wheel lugs using the pliers. Pull the rotor away from the wheel assembly.
Place the new rotor on the wheel assembly. Push the retainer clips on the wheel lugs with the pliers. Cut the wire tie holding the caliper to the strut using the pliers. Place the caliper on the mounting bracket and tighten the bolts with the socket and ratchet.
Put the wheel on the Dodge, and tighten the lug nuts with the lug wrench. Remove the jack stand from under the truck. Lower the vehicle to the ground. Repeat the process on the other wheel.
