'01 Durango brake Job

I need to replace the front pads and rear shoes on my 4.7/'01/4x4 Durango. Dealer says the rotors are supposed to be repalced as well - Had them surfaced once and I've got no warpage that I notice while
braking.
I'm not unfamiliar with brakes - I just converted an old '52 M37 with discs - What I'm looking to determine is if there are any tricks to removing/repalcing the pads/rotors. Also, how do I determine if the rotors need repalcing up front.
Thanks. Todd in Placervile, CA.

mic the rotor thickness when you get them off. Mininum thickness is .889". If they have been machined once and have some miles on them you'll probably need to replace them. They are not made with any extra metal in them anymore.
