k1500 changing brakes

Hey Guys, I am going to tackle my brakes this weekend and need to know a couple of things I plan on doing the following...

1. Replace front pads
2. IF rotors aren't bad leave them, if they are replace them
3. Change rear drum brakes out.

My main question is how do you get the front rotors off? Do they just pull off of the wheel studs? Do you have to repack all the front end bearings etc...? I checked in the book and it said you didn't have to go that far but I just want to make sure.

The truck is a 1991 chevy k1500 4x4. I know it is time to change these things, and I know pads are super easy, but I am curious about the rotors as well.

Please let me know how you get the rotors off.

Thanks,
Chris
