Didn't think of the lugs it might be a 5 lug due to bigger wheels, but since the studs are made into the drum when you remove the drum you remove the studs. New rotors should come with new studs also.

Fawzie13R, I believe your drum setup is very similar to mine. On the rear of your drums there are 4 bolts you have to remove to completely take the drum off. There are also two spot welds that must be drilled out. There should be one weld between the top two bolts and one weld between the bottom two bolts.

I would suggest doing a bit more reading before investing in parts. I remember reading somewhere on these forums that those 4 bolts on the 08 and up might be slightly larger than 07 and earlier. Based on that, I am not completely sure an earlier year disc setup is a direct bolt on, without drilling and rethreading those holes.

Hope this helps, good luck.
