    I have a 2002 GMC 3500 cab and chassis 4x4 that need all four rotors and pads. I am wondering if changing these is the same as changing them on any other truck. I have changed rotors and pads on my 1500's many times. Is there anything different on the 3500 4x4 other than the dual wheels in the back and the wheel spacers in the front? Any special tools needed? It has to be an outside job due to the fact that the truck doesn't fit in my garages which is why I am asking in advance of taking it apart and freezing outside. Any info would be great.

    Make sure that you have the right spindle nut to get the rotor off. And a big forced air heater! That will make a world of a difference. I just did my F250 outside too. Good luck

    That is what I am looking for. What exactly do I need to get this done. I need a spindle nut removal socket to get the rotor off. anything else? Like I said, I have never done a 2500 or 3500 before. I got a price to have them done for like 1500 bucks which seems crazy.
