Doing a front brake job on a 92 Landcruiser. I want to replace the rotors also. Is there any "trick" to removing the rotors? I also have wheel bearings that I'm thinking about replacing, but not sure how to do all that. I've done it on other cars and it was not too difficult; anything special to keep in mind? Thanks for any help you can provide.

This falls under what most of us refer to as a steering knuckle rebuild or birfield job. The first portion of these jobs involves removing the hub assembly including the rotor. Do some searches and you'll find plenty of info on methods, tools etc. FYI...it is advised to go ahead and do the full axle service considering you will be over halfway there by the time you remove the hub/rotor assembly.
