Question about 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche
Sometimes you can get a bad rotor. You can measure the rotors with a micrometer.
When you took off the old rotor did you take a wire brush to the hub to make sure to remove any debris/rust so that the new rotor(s) sit nice and flush on the hub? What causes brakes to pulsate right after rotor and pad replacement

Not to question your ability, if you listen from the drivers seat while driving, just do yourself a favor, check the rear brakes, funny how sound travels and tricks the mind

If the new rotors were not allow to seat after replacement they will warp extremely easily. Easy to check. Remove wheel and check for trueness of rotor, a dead give away is if you see a blueish tint on the rotor.

It is pretty easy, there is not much labor involved if it has anti-lock brakes in the rear you will also have to un-plug the wire harness attached to hubs.

SOURCE: noisy front wheel bearing
Yes the bearings can be changed on this truck. The bearing races will need to be removed from the rotor to do this use a punch and hammer once the rotor is removed. You will need inner bearing and race, outer bearing and race, and a seal, plus grease to pack the bearings. The hub on these trucks is the rotor. Please rate.

If ALL bolts are out....hit it with a sledge hammer to loosen it if necessary.
Side hits should do it.
Make sure you have the correct replacement because the old one will be no good after hitting it to remove it.
