I have an 02 3500 as said above i would not change the rotors out unless ur getting pulsing, or they look like they have issues. Most likely they will not I have 145,000 on my rig and have never changed the rotors and iv dont the pads once. The AWSOME part of our year trucks is they have disk all the way around. for the front just use a large C clamp and with the wheel off compress the pads as to release the caliper. after that its just the two bolts (sliders) that hold the caliper to the caliper bracket pull the caliper off and swap out the pads (straight foward) and then make sure the slider pins move well and apply some synthetic caliper grease on the slides this will keep them from possibly siezing. And as for the rear its a carbon copy to the front, just as easy should be easy enought if ur done brakes before. All of it is really easy an will take u longer to jack it pull the wheels and read this post. Now if you had to pull the rotors its a different story but im sure ur not goin to have a problem with that. Also 1/4 inch of pad will get ya a good while longer depending on how you drive, and ur front pads usually will wear faster than the rears (more braking power needed) as i said i got 145k on my rig and its 50% heavy towing and 50% getting to work and back via. highway. Its also an automatic so im using the brakes for sure! Let me know if you have any other questions, Il gladly help ya out
