Front Brake prices

Ok, so I did some reading today and it looks like turning the front rotors on a 4x4 isn't so easy. I'm not sure that explains the estimate I got today from a local lube shop. They want about $550 to replace the front brake pads and turn the rotors. 2 hours labor each side.

I asked about just replacing the pads. No problem, $167.

Seems a bit steep to me.....crap, looks like I'm going to have to learn some sh*t.

heh

that seems about right, you have to take the whole hub off to turn the rotors,

Or you can do it yourself and save you some money. Its not all that hard, did it many times. You could replace the front rotors and pads plus repack the bearings and a case of beer for well under 550
