Got them both installed over the past couple nights. 1 1/2 hours 1st one and 1hr 10min. second. Pretty easy job except for fighting to get the rotors off the hub, they were rusted on there. Everything else was smooth sailing. Take care......

That went pretty good, Yah, rusted rotors is normal.....I use a little penetrating oil then beat the snot out of the rotor between the wheel studs. Usually pops of after a few hits.
