I'm right in the middle of doing the Pass side right now, did the drivers side 3 weeks ago.
I am doing the socket/extension method by myself.
Pull the Brake assembly, pull the keepers from the studs, then rotor will come off.
Use lots of penetrating oil and a big hammer, hit the rotor to break the rust, then pry it off... Remove the ABS sensor...
Take the 4 bolts holding the hub out, spray P-oil in the holes, oil the hub where it mounts, hit it a few times to help the oil break the rust, put the bolts in, leave about 1/2" out, use a 1/2" drive 19mm deep impact socket with a short ext.. put it on a bolt, butt the ext. against the axle housing, crank the wheel hard (truck running), do it again on an opposite bolt. back the bolts out another 1/2", do it again...
Clean all the rust and anti-seize all the faces of the parts b4 assembly...
