Red face 93 Accord break rotors removal

Just was wondering if anyone has experience removing the rotors
on 90-95 Accord. As I understand, this should be the model years when the breaks are compatible.
Also it looks like I have the Akebono breaks not Nissan. Rotors are attached to the hub with four bolts through the outside of the rotor.
I went to that recommended http://www.cybrrpartspro.com/ website and found that it requires removal of the steering knuckle and then removing the rotor from the hub.
The question is: How can I avoid removing the steering knuckle?
I am lazy & donít want to remove something that may be not necessarily has to be removed, the ďdonít fix if itís ainít brokenĒ approach. Especially that itís my friendís car
and I am hoping to finish this up within (hopefully) one day.

Thanks,

Many shops now have the ability to turn them on the car. Call around to find one. I don't know if you have one in your area but I believe Pep Boys can do that.

thanks

Thanks,

I would of if I could of
The rotors will be out of the specs if I have them turned, thatís why I got new ones.
The question is still there; can I take them out without moving the hub?

No, if they are the "pressed on" type, they are removed from the rear and have to be separated from the knuckle.
You can remove the axle nut and "slide hammer" it off buy you may damage the bearing.
