So I have finally gotten around to changing the front brakes on my 2008 Ford Escape.
Let me just say: How do places get away with charging ~$125 for this? I bought high-end brake pads for $60 and installed them with a little guidance AT NIGHT in less than an hour.
… That’s seriously almost $65 an hour for labor, assuming they’re using the same pads I was. Hint: they won’t be.
But seriously. I’m not saying I’m pro at this, but I am saying: sometimes it’s better to get your hands dirty and do the job yourself. You’ll save money, learn something, and maybe have a little bit of fun while you’re at it.
Anyways, here’s the meat and potatoes: pictures!
Thanks again Dan!
