What kind of car? Are you buying the parts yourself or asking the shop too?


At the dealership a brake job for my highlander was around six hundred bucks just for the front. I got good truck quality brakes for it though that thing stopped on a dime literally.

Oh man!!! I would definitely not be able to afford that. I may just be buying it myself. It's a 2007 Suzuki Forenza

It's worth it I had them on for six months when I sold it and the guy took the tire off and thought we just put them on.


If you only had them for two months then either the brakes are defective or wasn't put on right.

Where did you buy them? I would get a better quality. How much are you wanting to spend I'll ask my df when he gets home in a bit he's a master mechanic

Exactly! It sucks too it's way worse than when we thought we needed them before. I don't know I was hoping 350ish.
