I just picked up a set of wave rotors and was wondering if install just involves removing the calipers taking out the front axle and removing the old rotors and replacing with the new rotors? Does anyone know the size of the hex key that holds the axle on and is there anything else involved?
Any help is much appreciated!

Just take off the calipers, pull the front wheel and take the rotors off. Don't have and '01 so can't say on the size of the bolt. The factory uses loc-tite on those rotor bolts and the best way to get them out is to heat them, otherwise you risk damaging them. I used a propane torch on them, doesn't hurt them or the wheels at all.
I used loc-tite putting them back on also.
