Break Job

Wow, I feel I was ripped..

I had my back discs changed, new pads and changed break fluid.

Does $375 sound too much? Next time I think I will do it my self..

man thats wayyyyyyyy too expensive. I changed the front and back pads (also put new fluid in it) on my Eb and it cost be like $80 ($35 for each set of pads, $10 bucks for beak fluid) It was pretty easy, the fronts were piss, the backs were a bit harder. I just followed Gregories repair manual and from a very inexperienced mechanic, it worked good.

I highly reccommend you do it yourself next time :)


Thanks


Dane.

Discs are still pretty expensive compared to pads... 375 fitted by a mechanic is pretty good for 4 sets of pads, 2 disks, brake fluid and labor. Not bad

It's he labour that costs. If you feel confident and have the right tools & time do it yourself next time.
