    What is the typical dealer cost to do new pads and rotors?

    Before I get jumped on to do it myself I am doing it on my own lol. I just want to know how much I am saving over having a dealership or other type of service shop to do it. I bought some Stoptech front and rear pads and new rotors from advance auto total cost was $435 and I'm putting them on next weekend.

    Depends on the shop. Call and ask.

    I know it depends on the shop but there's usually a ball park figure, Figured someone might know off the top of their head.

    That's the thing...everything is different. Different dealers have different rates, for labor and for parts.

    Figure ~$100/hr labor rates for a 2-3 hour job...you're looking at almost $800 parts and labor I'd suspect.

    A buddy of mine was quoted about 400 dollars for the rear brakes on his altima, and if he did front and rear they would do it for 750... Honestly, it is not hard at all. Just make an afternoon of it and take your time.

    Yeah I know its not hard Ive done them on my Cobra before and it looks even more easy on the STI. Seems as though its probably a good cut in half price over a shop or someplace like that doing it. Id rather do it at home anyway and not have to wait around or have no place to wait around like at some places. I might call the 2 subaru dealers in my area for the hell of it just to see what they would charge.

    All I have to say, is prepare to shear off the caliper bolts. Those things are HELL.
