Rear & Front Hub Disassembly & Assembly

I have to replace the front and rear rotors on my 1999 Alpine Coach. Does anyone have experience and /or information on the procedures and specs to do this? I am starting with the rear hub first. I have removed the left rear axle and now see that I will need a 3 ˝” socket to remove the hub nuts. Some of my questions are: 1-Do I remove the hub and rotor as one unit, or do they need to be disconnected first? 2-Does anything else need to be disconnected (the calipers are already removed) before I can remove the hub and rotor? 3- Are there any special procedures/tools to remove and replace the inboard seal? 4-What are the procedures to reassemble the hub, especially lubricating the bearings and torquing the hub nuts? Torque specs for all nuts would be very useful, especially the hub nuts. I will also need similar information for the front hubs.
I have done a lot of searching the Web for procedures, shop manuals, etc., but I am coming up with very little.

IIRC the rear end is a Dana product (probably "Spicer" brand today, owned by Dana), and somebody around here has their rear end model number. TedIII replaced a rear end early in his ownership & might have that info. Cris Cratch replaced rear brakes and needed (or at least got) axle info during that spelunking exercise recently. Try PM to those guys if no other replies surface.
Then, more I-way search or call Dana to see if they have a rebuild data sheet or manual for our model.
