:iagree:If you go to Amazon, you might still be able to get the Brembo rotors for $59 a piece, and the Hawk HPS pads for $69, and voila, you have new, high quality brakes for the front of your car for $190 shipped to your door.
That's the route I'm going fairly soon. Heard great things about this setup and it's relatively cheap. Did you use a promotional code to get that price btw?
BTW, how hard would that install be? Never done a brake job. If I had someone install it, how much coin would I be looking at dropping?
The pads take about 10 minutes total for two sides. The rotors can be a PITA though, because you're likely going to have to drill out the little screws that hold them to the hub. That's the only difficult thing about replacing pads and rotors. I'm going to wait until my dad can come over with his drill this weekend, otherwise I'd have them on my car as of this afternoon when I got them lol. Labor rates for rotor replacement is probably kind of expensive, and even a noob like me would rather just do it myself, so I guess I recommend just using/borrowing a drill or cordless screwdriver and doing it, it shouldn't take more than an hour at the most unless you have problems getting those little screws out.
Just let me know how you do it when you do the install this weekend if you don't mind. thanks!Well, I believe somebody from the Amazon thread mentioned that the Brembos came with replacement screws, but they are simply unnecessary, and when I did the brakes on my old Integra I simply left them after we drilled the heads off of them. I'm assuming these rotors sit on the hub without any play, right in place, so there is no reason for the screws in the first place. The rotors are being held in place by the wheels and lug nuts, and if those fail to hold the rotor to the hub, you have much bigger problems to worry about
I bought my set-up on ebay. I bought the crossdrilled and slotted rotors plus ceramic pads for 170.00 shipped to my door. My mechanic installed them for me for 80.00 bucks!Need to replace my pads and rotors and I've been looking around at places like tirerack but cant seem to find anything decent for under 350. Can any of you guys guide me to an inexpensive place? i'd greatly appreciate it.
