Yup. BFH > BFD


That and sometimes a burnzomatic helps.

You'll note that on the flat surface of the rotor, in between the stud holes, there are a couple of smaller threaded holes. I can't remember exactly what size they are, but the idea is that you run a couple of bolts through those holes, and as you crank 'em down they press on the face of the hub (behind the rotor) thus driving the two apart.

use the Jackscrew hold in the rotor. Use the sparetire hold-down to screw the rotor off...or use the BFH

ummmm if you dont need it anymore if you are replacing them? I dont know if you are or not but if you dont get a nice hammer and smash the **** outta the back of it, it will come off . If you need it give it some wacks on the front, not where the pads touch, but by the studs...if you know what i mean.

Wanted to help, but all I could think was "Kill the Furian."

But do what Joe said.

lol you're not the first person that wanted to kill me! anyways, yeah joe you have the best idea,i didnt think of that, i wound up using the holes that the caliper mounts to behind the disc and used bolts with nuts on them and cranked them down to push the disc off from the back, it worked VERY well. i spent about 2.5 hours hitting it with a hammer, pb blaster in the holes tapping al around the thing and prying on it...nothing worked. thanks for the input guys.
