How do you get these rotors turned? I recall taking a set in to get them turned from an F250 once and they said they cant turn them with the races in the hub.
Does your buddy understand your own brake troubles? He must be really desperate to be asking for brake help from the doctor! Haha

Knock the wheel studs out and separate the hub from the rotor.

My wife's old explorer had the same setup on the rotors. I contemplated getting them turned for a few min then said, screw this crap and bought new rotors.

I take it that it isn't a newer f-150. I've done mine and never had the issue. They would just turn them and call it good. My only problem was calling 3 parts stores that told me they can't turn rotors to find out the o'reilly has the lathe but did t know how to use it. I asked if I could do it myself and they said no.

On the F150 rotors, if they're similar to what's on my exploder the rotor is actually also part of the hub. It's not like just a rotor that slides onto the studs. The hub bearing races are actually pressed right into the rotor and the bearings ride inside the rotors on the hub spindle.

Entire replacement rotors should be pretty cheap. I've done wheel bearings on mine and they weren't difficult at all, a punch and hammer drove the old ones out no problem. I also set the new ones the same way, no special tools.

I feel his pain! NO ONE can tell me why it's happening though. That's the worst part. I'm contemplating still driving it up to Tahoe, but worried that it will fail between fill ups and it will cook the TC. Not sure it's worth the risk.
