Default Does the hub assembly separate from the rotor?

Easy question. Yes, I searched. Below are two pics from Autozone showing the rotor only and the rotor with hub assembly. Question is, does that hub assembly really separate from the rotor on my 1995 4WD? I have rear ABS, which is the only distinction they make in the part numbers.

I beat on my passenger-side hub assembly until it was no longer nice and round and it didn't budge. I now have to return the rotor I got in exchange for one with a hub assembly. Now, I need to repeat the process for the driver's side. Do I just exchange that rotor-only for a rotor/hub assembly, too, or is there a trick to seperating them?

Thanks,
Jim

no you have to press the wheel studs out of the assembly first and then the hub and rotor should fall apart pretty easy. The studs are a press fit and hold the two together. Once you have them out you will need to press them into the new hub and rotor assebly either with a punch and hammer or if you have a press or air hammer.

Ah ha! So the studs hold it together. It's too late for the passenger side, but there's still hope for the driver's side.

Thanks!
