You must first press out the wheel studs. You then press off the hub from the rotor. Most machine shop will charge you $60.00 and in most cases you will have to buy 3-5 new wheel studs that will get damaged in the removal process

These are the steps for a 1995 k2500 4x4. 1996 models may be different.

Remove the caliper and use wire to hang it out of the way. Don't let it hang by the brake hose. The front hub is fastened to the drive spindle with a nut and washer, you must remove the nut and washer. This nut is about 1 3/8"(it's metric). On the inside of the the rotor sheild, find four 15mm bolts that hold the hub onto the brake/steering arm. Remove the hub and rotor as an assembly. Place on a hard surface with the wheel lug bolts sticking up. Use a hammer and punch to drive out the eight lug bolts being careful not to damage to threads. Install new rotor to hub in reverse order.
