The other day, we were driving on the interstate and we had to brake suddenly. When we did this, we noticed that the front end vibrated. This is a sign of warped rotors. A quick call to the repair shop and they wanted over $500 to fix it. What a rip off! We logged on to RockAuto.com and ordered 2 new rotors and a set of new brake pads. Total cost was $71.03 delivered. We spent about an hour this morning removing the old brake pads and rotors and installing the new ones. It was a very easy job thanks to our Chilton/Haynes Repair Manual and some really great YouTube videos.
The van no longer vibrates when braking hard and it won't need a brake service on the front end for a very long time. We saved well over $400 by doing it our self. Who knew Cynthia was so handy!
