I don't know if this is the way you are supposed to do it, but I used a sledge hammer to remove the old ones. They are just pressed in.

I put the new ones in and ran a lugnut up on them and tightened it until they pulled into the axle. An impact wrench would come in handy here.

Well I actually need to know the proper way to take off the rotor. From there I can figure it out myself. I just dont want to screw anything up.

just get a repair manual and it will walk you through the process of removing the rotor. after that its just bang out the old studs then draw the new ones on.

in the rear you will need to remove the axles realistically.

there is some info in the technical write up/ product review section that PSJ and I posted on this.

getting rotors off is cake. just take the two bolts out that hold the caliper in(15mm in back, 18mm in front) and pull the caliper off and get it supported somewhere out of the way and the just pull the rotor off...caliper is all that holds it on.

The only other thing is that the rotors have these little metal clips on the studs that hold the rotor on. I just took a screw driver and bent back the tabs and the clips came right off.

I believe you can get around removing the rear axles by knocking the studs out through the ABS sensor hole in the brake backing plate...but not sure.
