My truck needs new brakes in all four corners, however from what my haynes manual is talking about it sounds like its gonna kinda be a pain in the butt for the front? Its talking about removing wheel bearings in order to get the front brake rotor off. Which is fine I guess because I wanna replace and re grease new wheel bearings. However, is all that gonna be a pain in the butt?

The truck is a 05 2wd F350 for reference if thats needed...

Its gonna be going in the ford dealer for a trans flush before a trip I'm taking next month..didn't know if would just be easy to let the dealer mess with the brakes though I think that would be expensive.

just like repacking bearings...

shouldn't be too difficult.

are you sure the rotors need changed?

it might just need pads.

I've never really worked on something that I had repack the bearings. I'll give it a try, I wanted to replace the rotors at least up front because it looks like the way the front is set up its all one hub/disc assembly. I've got this rumbly/grindy noise when off the gas and coasting about 30 to 40 MPH. To me it sounds like a ungreased/ worn out bearing or hub thing lol if that make sense. It looks like the front rotors are going to be the most expensive so if I go and replace those I should probably just go and do the back because I think thats just a rotor that slides over this hub thing, that looks like it comes off like a dana 30 hub would...its a ford 10.50 I believe..
