You might not need to replace the calipers, but pads and rotors will need to be changed, if it was metal to metal. You would open up the bleeder screws on the calipers, and use a big C-clamp to force the pistons back into the caliper. Then remember to close the bleeders. The rotors come off after removing the calipers, and if not, then the wheel bearings will have to be taken apart, and checked, cleaned and repacked before reassembly.
If the truck has disc brakes on the rear then the park brake shoes are located inside the rear rotors. You have to remove the brake calipers, pads and rotors to access them
Could have either on the rear. Both were an option.

Rotors on the front drums on the rear.
Hello, Once you take the tires off and remove the calipers, the rotors come right off just like a front wheel drive car. There is no castle nuts or bearings to deal with like the older trucks had. Good luck .............

Not sure what the purpose of rotating the rotors is supposed to be, but if you meant to 'turn the rotors', that means to have the rotor faces machined or ground smooth and flat.If you mean 'rotate the rotors' like you would rotate tires, it's easy enough to do and I can't think of much harm (or benefit) to doing it. Are you sure someone isn't just pranking you? Just take off the front wheels, unbolt the calipers (two 18mm bolts each side), then remove and support them. *DO NOT let them hang by the brake line, rest them on a block or hang them from a wire*slip off the rotors and put them back on the opposite wheel. Reinstall the calipers and wheels. *You may need to use a 4" C-clamp to squeeze the caliper(s) enough to slide them back onto the rotors* Your rotors are now rotated, and coincidentally spinning in the reverse direction when you're moving.
yes. scarebird.com makes front brackets, then you must source some ford crown vic rotors (95-97) and some GM 1/2 ton truck brake calipers.
