96 Ford brake pad re&re pointers

Buddy is bringing his 96 Ford 3/4 ton or 1 ton 4x4 over on Friday to change the front pads. It has a straight axle. Appears one front calliper got its pistons so far extended it started leaking. He said now he needs to pump brakes for even rear brakes to work. I know the rotors will need to be turned. Do the rotors come off like my 03 Silverado or do you need to pull the hub off too? Any special precautions I should know about before I try to bleed his brakes? I'm not charging him for labour since $$ is really tight, plus hes a new buddy of mine I met that needs to be educated on the necesasary things about taking care of a lifted 4x4... He is this insane but smart guy thaty moved up to McCleese lake from the coast. He bought 40 acres and is currently building a cord cabin I sold him a bunch of wood to build it and then lent him my concrete mixer and a bunch of chimney parts when I saw what he was up against... He is insane for building a cabin in the winter but truly he know what he doing.

with the D60 there are 2 bolts that hold on the caliper. 1/2 or 9/16th l think. then pry the caliper off.
the 2 that hold on the mounting bracket. 7/8th l think.

as for the rotor, you need to take the locking hub off, and then the wheel bearings. lock nut is the same for the 60 as is the 50. the 44HD is smaller.

then you can pry the rotor and hub off together. there is a seal that may make it difficult.

then separate the rotor from the hub some how.

Thanks! I have two wheelbearing sockets, one fits my 14 ff rear axle and a 2nd socket for D44 and Corp 10 bolt. If I was re-packing the bearings on this Ford Front D60 do I need to buy a 3rd socket?? Will the ff socket work on a 1981 chev front dana 60?

Thanks for all the tips... and if anyone here lives locally within a hour or two, do you have spare rotors or callipers?? Cheaper to buy new I hear for rotors vs 25 bucks for turning each plus fuel to drive into town... 250-397-2652

unless its a superduty dana 60 then you would have to take the spindle nuts off, then take the hub off the spindle , then pound the studs out to seperate rotor from wheel hub

Nightmare job its been!! Ice caked everywhere and taking too darn long! Had to remove nuts and seperate hub. Glad I had a press for the studs and a air hammer to seperate rotor and hub. We got new rotors and hubs on last night and then the pistons would not move back in with a c-clamp. Tried to release bleeder screw but it was rusted in. Going to try some heat on it today after 12 noon. Release brake line fitting on calliper but pistons would still not move back, even one at a time!! I thought of welding a nut on my c-clamp and use the air gun. Callipers are $45+ each but my freind has zero $$. I might end up buying a pair for him and he can pay me back. He also needs a new front drive shaft. U-joint 2nd from t-case in cv is shot. Slip yoke is either shot but looks like 1" of splines on stub don't even go into slip yoke. Its 21.25" weld to weld. Anyone have a used ds for sale or trade or to donate?? I was thinking 23" weld to weld. Yoke on t-case, not a flange.

Truck is a F250 HD (HD pretty sure) XLT 7.3 diesel standard. Brake shoes he brought were wrong app. We took them back to Napa and ended up getting pads for a 94 front axle!!

Bought 2 wheel bearing lock nuts. One was kinda stupid cuz nut slipped past the 4 nubs in the socket and then socket just spun. @nd socket is like the one radman pictures above.

I'll check my email before noon today for any pointers. I took lots of pics and they are still loading so got to leave by 9 am so pics may not be loaded. Any suggestions you can phone me or text me at 250-706-0655.

Sounds like someone has been in there before or something got changed if the parts store has to change years to get the right pads seems weird

Job all done, buddy left last night. Stops on a dime now but at least he had a month of learning how to slow down with gearing being a 5 speed with 4:10's. He would like to trade it for a small jeep or other smaller 4x4 and a couple horses.

Radman the nut picture here I bought and was too small in dia yet the part # and brand was different and did not have the dips in it... It was a lot bigger than the f150 socket I have.
