Default Where do I get my brakes installed?

Hey guys,

I have a set of 4 pot brakes, SS lines and rotors to be installed on my car. Where should I go to get it done?

Should I have the dealer do it for me while I have my check up?

Any shops that specialize in brakes that offer a good price?

I want to go to a reputative and trustworthy shop to have this done.

Thank you and Much appreciated!!

RocketRally.Com or PM 5 Zigen.

RR is a reputable shop, 5 Zigen is an at-home mechanic with awesome skills.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, Rocket Rally is too far away. Any other suggestions?

It's really not that hard. You should be able to do all 4 corners in about an hour.
Just replace one corner at a time.

There's a DIY on Scoobymods.com, check that out and see if you feel like doing that.

Thanks for the replies.

I would rather have a shop do it for me, as I dont have the confidence to install them myself.

Any other shops I should check out?

My friend is pretty picky and recommended me this place http://seven-rocks.com/

I do most things on my own so I cant vouche for them personally but I trust my friend. he said there are some older guys who work on the normal cars, and the younger guys are tuners and know what is going on with cars that crowd would be into, heh.
