Brake Rotor & Steering Box replacement

I have an '83 300D and I am in the process of putting it back on the road after sitting for 1 1/2 years. I started with dropping the oil and changing the filter and both the fuel filters as well. Any advice on this would be great!

I need to pull the brake rotors off and slap on new ones. I've done the pads before, but looking at the rotors, I don't see any obvious signs on pulling them off. Maybe I am just inempt at seeing the obvious, but I need advice on doing this.

Also, gone through 1 used and 1 rebuild steering box and still have about 4-6 inches of play in the wheel. The box is old now (4-5 years), but this is the way it was when new (about 2-3 inches of play vs. 4-6 inches now). I am assuming I will need to replace it with a new one. The last I remember a mechanic (non M-B one) told me the the front end looked ok. The springs and shocks were replaced about 4 years ago, front and rear.

Please advice.
