View Full Version : 2003 Silverado 4x4 rotor removal

04-08-2008, 08:00 AM
Last time I had my rotors turned the gm dealer had a set-up to turn the rotors without taking them off the vehicle but the bill came to $400+ including new pads I think. Is it possible to take the rotors off with regular tools and take them in to be turned? I used to pay $10 per drum\rotor in the past. Figure doin' it myself would be cheaper. Plus with the new "unitr bearings" I don't need to worry about bearing load when putting everything back together. Tips??

Anyone know exactly how much does a shop charges to turn rotors while still on truck and replace pads?

it would be a hell of a lot cheaper, i just did all 4 pads and rotors on my 04 chev duramax 2500 and it costed me 300 bucks for everything, and a hour and a half of my own time,

buy after market rotors and do it your self. i just got a quote from burnaby auto parts for a 2003 Silverado 4x4 3/4 ton and the price they gave me was $68 each. I can change a rotor in about 20 min each side. your not letting GM charge you $100 bucks an hour are you?
