    labor cost for Front and Rear pads replacement

    I took my subaru wrx to Capitol Subaru, San Jose for the 75k Intermediate Service. The service personnel recommended I get the couple of additional things done. This is what they charge for labor and parts , is this reasonable?

    1. Replacement of Front and Rear pads and machine all the rotors
    Labor : $325.14
    1 Pad Kit (Front): $114.51
    1 Pad Kit (Rear): $102.45
    2 Quiet Brake Kit: $37..90

    2. Replacement of Both Front Inner CV Boots

    Labor: $422.61
    2 Nut Axle: $19.66
    2 DOJ Boot: $39.56
    2. BAND AXLE Boot: $20.84
    2 BAND AXLE SFT BOOT: $16.64
    2 GREASE DRIVE SHAFT 155G: $57.74
    1 BRAKE CLEAN: $12.95

    Does this look reasonable? The car was in the service station for about 4hours.

    thanks,

    Wow those pads are expensive. You could have had MUCH better pads for that price had you been able to do it yourself.

    Also, that's a LOT of labor charge for an hours worth of work. But they do charge flat rate per job, so I can't say whether it is or isn't a rip with that regard. But going to a dealership or a shop is ALWAYS a rip compared to doing something yourself.

    That's actually cheap labor for brakes. Most shops charge 2.4 hrs per axle (means 2.4 front and 2.4 rear). At roughly $100/hour however a brake job is usually something they discount labor cost on to stay competitive.

    Compared to our prices out here in Delaware those are some pretty good labor costs for both the brakes and the 2 inner DJ boots (we charge 2.5hrs per side at around $125/hr)... The only thing I noticed is that they charge for shop supplies such as the brakekleen....
