I dont know if your 97 is gonna be a slip off type front rotor. Chances are its like mine where you have to pull the hub off and press out the studs and then swap the rotors.

4 bolts on the inside side of the hub. You will need a 12 point socket. Take these bolts out and your hub should come off. Tap your studs out and the rotor come off. Good luck.

They're one of the first parts to rust away, many people don't have them.
Problem is without the guard small rocks can get wedged inbetween the pads and rotor gouging up the rotor pretty good while making a hellish noise.
