Take off the grease cap 1st. Then remove the cotter pin, nut, washer, & outside wheel bearing. Rotor will then slip off.

"How do you get the front brake rotor off when rusted & a sludge hammer does not work?" The REAR? Where did you get that?

Use a bigger hammer :) an 8lb sledge with about 3-4 feet handle and wack away. If you have access to an pneumatic air hammer i suggest using the ball tip in between the studs and then use a hammer.
