well the time has come where I finally needed to replace the rear brakes. They were BAD. metal on metal almost.... no wonder the car was sounding like a ship when I was stopping in reverse. now i chose to do the fronts as well, as the steering wheel was shaking... this was the 3rd set of brakes, dealer replaced, but now the van is out of warranty.
I chose the EBS slotted rotors and EBC green stuff pads. why? because it was the only thing I could find really... i didnt want just regular blanks, and wanted better pads.
total price... around 560 shipped, not bad I hope.
pictures, for your time.
installed drivers side, front:
i only had time to do that, and take off the rear, until 10PM hit, and i broke those metal shim thingies that hold the brake pads, so i have to go buy new ones tomorrow.
what takes the longest to me, was to get the old rotors off. its like they are welded on there almost!
