Rotor and hub?

1979 Cj-5, Dana 30 with disc brakes. Are rotor and hub 2 separate peices because I'm trying to replace the rotor and I'm not sure if they're just rusted together.

To separate the rotor and hub put the lug nut on the lugs to protect the threads and pound the lugs out the back of the rotor. Some hubs will be easy to knock loose and others will have fused to the rotor due to rust and require some additional energy to remove.

FWIW, you can get the rotor/hub as an assembled unit ( not with bearings though) from the parts store. It's worth the extra coin IMO

Thx. Just didn't want to start banging on it without knowing. Also, do the hub bolts thread into anything other than the lug nut? Or do they just sit in the rotor and hub and thread onto the lug nut.

Not sure what you mean, but I'll give it a shot. The bolts that hold the locking hub assembly just thread into the hub. The wheel studs are a press fit through the back of the rotor.

Ok. That makes sense to me. Can I put the bolts through the pack of the rotor and use the lug nuts to tighten the hub to the rotor before install?
