Spot on advice Harvs...belt the old rotors we had to do...rusted on!! A combination of a decent BFH with blows all around the hub and the back of the old rotor eventually persuaded them to move. A little emery paper to lightly clean up the surfaces and a thin smear of copper grease should make it easier next time.Harvs82 said:Also remember to not let the brake caliper hang by the brake house, easiest way is to use an old coat hanger and attach it to the spring, out of the way. Also remember to use some loctite or similar on the brake caliper bolts when you put them back together.
Also helps if you get some brake cleaner and give the new discs a good going over, just to remove any crap that might be on there from manufacture. As previously mentioned, the old rotors will most likely be difficult to get off, so use a mallet, and don't be afraid to give them a good belt.
Probably a good idea to put new pads in at the same time too, and remember that both pads and discs will need bedding in, so go for a decent drive and wear everything in.
I recently replaced the fronts on my VS with DBA slotted rotors and Bendix ultimate pads.... and have never looked back. I know that they chew the discs a bit more and are a bit more dusty, but it has made a huge improvement to the way the car brakes.
