Thanks, already done. Got new ones. Only reason I asked was a buddy of mine could reface them. Just got new ones and pads. Next is my u-joint. Keeps breaking...

I am replacing rotors and brakes on my 2007 Liberty , can't seem to get the rotors off . They have not been off before , seems to be just rusted on tight . Tried hitting them from all around(witha piece of wood protecting them ) , just can't seem to shake them off . I will try some Liquid Wrench on them , and i have removed the small retaining tabs on the lug studs , I am missing something else to remove ? I have the caliper and the brake pad clip off of course.
Thanks for any help .
As a though , should I take a propane torch for sweating copper pipes and heat up the rotor , I would be carefull not to damage the hub , just warm it up to maybe loosen it (heat expands metal , right)?
