Ok, I'll ask: Where are you? Anchorage? Are you just looking for stockers or aftermarket?

Any interest in doing them yourself? And by going out are you hearing a squealing or grinding when stopping?

parts like pads or rotors or having them done? I believe plenty of folks on the boards can help you out with the brakes if you just need the pads changed.

Rotors and pads are easy to do! I've done mine in my garage in pretty short order.

pay a little extra and upgrade to hawk pads. the hps pads are what i'm going to here soon since my front lgt brake pads are in need of changing, also going to be looking into a set of front dba 4000 slotted rotors for it as well.

+1 for HPS. They're not THAT much more than a full set of stock pads, and they perform MUCH better.

EBC reds are a solid value too. Although more dust is a trade off I suppose.
