Remove the wheels. Using an appropriate sized Allen wrench or specialty GM calliper wrench, remove the upper and lower calliper bolts. Lift the callipers aside and support them using something substantial enough to hold the weight off the hydraulic lines. Most K1500's have a retaining screw or flat spring-nut to keep tension on the rotor while the wheel is off. Remove the screw or carefully work the retainer off the wheel stud so that you do not break the retainer. After the retainer is removed the rotor should come off quite easily. If the rotor is rusted on it may require a little persuasion to get it to come free. Note that when re-installing the calliper it may be necessary to spread the callipers before you will be able to get the brake pads over the rotor. Use a block and clamp or some other method to retract the piston but be careful to not damage the brake pad surfaces.

Remove the front wheels then the calipers and the rotors should slide off. the front rotors on that car are pressed on and must be pressed off with a 1 ton machine press which ruins the bearings in order to do this you must remove the entire wheel assembly which requires a tool to remove the threaded studs from the ball joints after the assembley is removed the rotors may then be pressed off the bearings replaced and then the new rotor can be pressed on most automotive service centers have presses and some auto parts stores as well this is a very difficult job if you dont know what youre doing which i learned the hard way good luck
