I ordered my brake pads from irontoad.com. @ 90 bucks for both front and rear. there's a diy in the stop drop and roll forum. do a search for brakes and rotors diy. its not as bad as it seems to do it yourself..

check with your dealer, you may be able to get them cheaper/faster. and dont pay a shop to do them. ill do them for half the price, in the convenience of your driveway or mine

Plus you save yourself some dough that way. I'm sure the NE fam can get an install meet for this. I still need to paint my brake calipers.

Hey I'm down for a DIY event. I gotta change my Power steerin and brake fluid. Hey Jr I got the 10mm socket for the diff and the funnel to replace the gear oil. I just did mine about two weeks ago.
