Default Brake rotors

Im getting ready to replace the front rotors/pads and shocks on my 04 1500. ? is do the rotors come off easy or is there some disassembly of other components? I ordered the rotors and pads at NAPA, as well as the reflex shocks. Rotors are the lifetime warranty and the pads are ceramic. Any suggestions?

The only thing holding the rotors on is the wheels and lug nuts. Sometimes they do get stuck to the center hub though, with a little pentrating oil and a small mallet, mine came right off after not being changed in 7 years.

Sometimes a small mallet won't work and a BFH is required!

I went with the "Reflex" monroe shocks. Top of the line at NAPA. My truck is stock height and I have no plans on lifting or heavy off roading. Most of my travel is interstate so I enjoy a nice smooth ride. My K9 vehicle has the sensa trac (monroe) shocks and when they were installed several thousand hard miles ago, are still doing great.
