brake rotors on a 95 E150, difficult to remove?

I am going to be doing a brake job on my van, and while I have done the pads a few times this will be the first time I replace the rotors. Is it a sbasic as remove the dust cap, pin and bolts to pull off the rotors?

Remove the dust cap and then the cotter pin and nut cover. Remove the nut. Reomove the outer bearing/washer. Remove the rotor. Get the inner bearing out of the rotor.

Repack the bearings with grease! Install a new grease seal and install in reverse order. Make sure you do not overtighten the bearing. I get it somewhat tight, then spin the rotor, the back it off until free then tighten the nut as tight as I can with my fingers. Check for play, then install the bracket, pads, and caliper.

Good luck!
