    does anybody know any tricks to get the rotor loose from the drum if the screws are stripped ? the only thing i can think of is pulling the hub assembly off and drilling the screw out.

    thats the easiest way. have you tried using some penetrating lubricant. Spray it on and let it sit for like ten minutes. use PB Blast because WD-40 is a joke. ive also taken a grinder and ground the head off of a set screw before. Then you can remove the rotor, take some vice grips, and unscrew the remaining piece of the set screw. but you will most likely damage the rotor with this route, unless you have a super small diameter grinding wheel.

    PB Blaster and take a dremel and slot the screw and use a big screwdriver to take them out.

    I always just drill and use an ease-out.

    I normaly use a good bit, drill off the head of the screw... get the rotor off, then use a 3in Grinder and grind the bolt down to the hub, and finish it off with a dremel :)
