There is a brake parts group buy from Kronos going on right now. If you are gonna get new pads you might as well get a discount.
I'm not in a computer or I would link you to it.
This is a discussion on Dealership changing brakes within the General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents. forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; There is a brake parts group buy from Kronos going on right now. If you are gonna get new pads ...
holy crap! thats ridiculous! I wonder what kind of pads you get at like a firestone type place. I know they wont install parts you bring in, but I wonder which brand (if not their own) they use for 'performace brakes'

I would go with what everyone says, do the install yourself. Not only do you learn more about your car, you also save moneys!
As to which pads should be able type in make model and year of your car and should bring it up.

BRAKE SYSTEM GROUP BUY! 10% OFF Centric/Powerslot Rotors, Hawk Pads & More!
I'm already PM'ing back and forth with Kronos, working out prices. thank you very much.
How much do pads cost?
BTW, I've changed my own since day one, never found it difficult, except for when the caliper piston sticks...
Drum brakes, like the e-brake, are a little harder, sometimes you have to rivet the new lining to the carrier. Still not too bad.
And try to get some of the brake lubricating paste, sold in little packets (like mustard at McD) at parts stores. It's NOT grease, don't be mistaken there. Instructions on use should be on the pack.
You can't have everything - where would you put it?
$500... holy damn. Man, if you were in my area I'd do it for you for a six pack of beer. Anyone on here willing to help this guy out? Teach him a little?
