no need its easy

take the tire off
take off the caliper (i think its a 15mm)
take off the caliper
two more bolts takes off the caliper bracket
pads are off
rotor comes off

flip steps to put back on

MAKE SURE TO USE LOCKTITE on the bolts so they dont come off and torc to spec

Jack truck up. Hold it on stands.
Pull wheel/tire off.
Take Caliper off(14mm)
Take pads off

To take rotor off.....continue to....

Take caliper bracket off(2 bolts, 15mm)
Drum slides right off.

IF you are a 4x4, above are the instructions. Install is reverse.

I take a 6" c-clamp to push the caliper pistons back into the caliper, to allow clearence for the new pads.
